Become a Yoga Teacher Trainer
Junior Trainer Program | Yoga Teachers College
Teach a minimum 300 classes
Get invited to the program
Assist with three courses
(within an 18-month period)
Receive trainer diploma
Begin teaching/co-teaching courses
STEP 1. You’re required to have at least 300 classes of teaching experience before applying. The program is invite-only, so you also need a formal invitation from YOGABODY headquarters in order to apply.
STEP 2. Course assistants join the teaching team and help with administrative tasks, teaching tasks, organization, and student services. You’ll be an active member of the instructor team, which is where you’ll learn the most.
STEP 3. After completing three successful courses as an assistant, you’ll be granted a trainer diploma and can teach or co-teach courses.
COSTS, BENEFITS & CONSIDERATIONS
There is no fee for this program, but you will need to pay for your personal travel and accommodation costs (which vary depending on the course location and duration).
Invitation and acceptance does not guarantee successful graduation. Some trainers in training may not be granted a diploma depending on their performance, level of commitment, and skills acquired (or not).
To qualify as an ‘educator,’ most registries (Yoga Alliance, ACE, etc) require a minimum of 1,000 hours taught. We accept teachers with 300 hours experience, but you’ll need to plan for your additional teaching hours (to reach the 1,000-hour minimum) before completing the program.
Diploma-holding graduates will be qualified to teach or co-teach Yoga Alliance continuing education and teacher training courses.
While opportunities to work for YOGABODY and the Yoga Teachers College might arise, we cannot guarantee it. All participants should assume they will need to explore opportunities outside of our school.
