Yoga Alliance requires that you complete all 200 hours of the teacher training; however, we understand that sometimes conflicts come up, and we have developed the make-up policy listed below.
You can miss a maximum of 27 training hours, all of which are due to be made up by the last day of your training. If you miss more than 27 hours or do not complete your make-up hours by the end of the training, you will receive a not passing status and will be required to pay in full to retake the training.
At the end of each day, if you missed class, your training team will assign you a written make-up assignment through Google Classroom. There are two make-up options listed for you below.
Make-Up Option for Online Trainings: Zoom Recording & Written Assignment
You may watch the recorded video of the missed Zoom session within 7 days and return the following written assignment for each day missed:
A brief outline of the material covered & your 3-5 biggest takeaways from the content covered.
Please be aware that videos will only be stored in your Training’s Zoom account for 7 days before being deleted, so do not delay!
Make-Up Option for in person trainings: Private Session with your Trainer
Schedule a private session with your trainer at some point during the program. The cost of a private session ranges from $100-$150 per hour, paid directly to your trainer. After a week when the recorded video is no longer available, your only option will be to complete your missed time via a paid private.
1-hour private = up to 4 hours of missed time
2-hour private = up to 8 hours of missed time
3-hour private = up to 12 hours of missed time
4-hour private = up to 16 hours of missed time
Please note: Only two sessions of private instruction are allowed and are subject to trainer availability. The remainder of your missed time will need to be made up by watching the Zoom recordings.
If you miss more than 27 hours: You will receive a not passing status and will be required to pay in full to retake the training.
TARDINESS AND LEAVING EARLY
In order to receive credit for attending the day, you must arrive on time and stay present for the full duration of the day. There may be times when you have to arrive late or leave early, and you are allotted two 10-minute grace periods over the course of the training. When possible, please notify your training team in advance. If you are late or leave early more than twice, on the third time, you will not receive credit for that day and you will need to make up the day according to the make up policy.
