Thank you for your interest in our Training Program!
Getting Started~ Yoga 4 Love Advanced Training Programs:
FAQ’s BEFORE STARTING THE PROGRAM:
What about credentials? What does yoga instruction usually fall under?
That is a good question, and many have asked. Yoga is not like a massage or cosmetology school, which is regulated by the state, it is an art, like karate or dance, taught from teacher to student. Yoga is not regulated by the state or government, and thankfully so, as it would put small studios out of business. The Texas Yoga Association, of which Lisa Ware is on the board, fought back around 2007-08 to keep regulation out of yoga. Yoga schools were being charged exorbitant fees and having to close down. Many went to the capitol to get legislation changed so the state no longer regulates Texas yoga schools.
If you choose, there is a private organization that you may apply to called Yoga Alliance. It is not monitored by anyone except for themselves. Yoga graduates may apply to get their RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) paperwork through them, and this is totally optional. Yoga 4 Love is registered through the YA as an RYS, Registered Yoga School, 200 and 500 and 1000 Hour under our One Yoga USA Training Programs. If you choose to apply for Yoga Alliance all of your hands on hours must be completed. This includes assisting, demoing classes, community classes, internship and yoga charity work . Your hands on hours are directly overseen by a 500 Hour RTY Yoga 4 Love approved teacher or a 500 or 1000 Hour RYT Yoga 4 Love Director.

All the Getting Started requirements are available as soon as you register on our website. You will move through the program by completing each piece of each lesson and selecting ‘completed’.

What is the difference between trainee assist, demo and student internship in the Y4L program|?
How do I know the online portion will work well for me? How is feedback given and how often it is given during the process, prior to the retreat?
