Ethics of the Yoga Teacher
From early in the course, students will begin practice teaching. Practice teaching will evolve as the weeks pass, beginning with one-on-one teaching with other students, then small groups, to eventually the entire YTT class. It is the belief of the Satyam Lead Instructors that “practice makes perfect” and only with ample time spent using your voice, standing in front of the group, and actually teaching, will the Satyam Student grow to be an exceptional teacher.
10 Weekend Program:
*indicate 3-day weekend
On the first weekend of the program, $1,000 of tuition must be paid for student participation. A payment schedule based on early bird price or full program price will be coordinated with payment in full made by November 3rd or the 8th weekend of the program.
In addition to the 10 weekends, students are required to complete all of the homework assignments. Anticipate an assignment given for most weekends. Throughout the course, you’ll be required to take 10 classes from either of the lead instructors. In addition to these 10 classes, you’ll be asked to sit and observe 6 of their classes and complete a write up of your observations.
