IS THE ONLINE YOGA COURSE AS GOOD AS THE IN PERSON EXPERIENCE?

The proof is in the pudding! We already have Santosha Certified Online Yoga Teacher Training graduates teaching all over the world after completing our 2020 trainings. Our team have worked hard to recreate the comprehensive content we cover in-person for our online students and have created a course which enables you to not only gain the teaching skills and knowledge to teach but also evolve and deepen your own practice and experience. So yes, the course is just as great as our renowned in-person Santosha yoga course!

CAN I SELF PACE ON THE ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

Absolutely! The course is completely self paced. You can complete it in one month, or study in a timeframe that suits you. We have had so many full-time workers, parents and students join us on the Certified Online Yoga Teacher Training course for this reason. If you do not complete the course in your month, you are given access to live zoom classes right up until you graduate the course - however long that takes you.

DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE COURSE START DATE TO BEGIN?

No, you can start your training from the minute you sign up. We will give you immediate access to all the comprehensive video modules, classes, handouts and specialised teaching manuals which give you all you need to begin your yoga teaching journey.

WHAT IF I CANNOT COMPLETE THE COURSE IN ONE MONTH?

Not a problem! You can take as long as you need to complete your studies - and if you do not finish in the month you signed up for you can access all the future live zoom classes - up until your graduation from the course.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

Our Certified Online Yoga Teacher Training course cost at our Launch Special Rate is $1,490 Australian Dollars if you pay in full. We also offer payment plans that can be made in 4 x monthly instalments meaning you can start your online yoga teacher training journey from as little as $423.75 AUD.

DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes, we offer a payment plan options on our Online Yoga Teacher Training so everyone can afford to join us. Start from as little as $423.75 AUD monthly for the 4 month plan. Circumstances change during the course? We can work with you to assist with deferred payments or longer payment time.

HOW LONG DOES THE ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING TAKE?

For those who wish to study full-time the Level 1 Online YTT 200 hour course will run over 33 teaching days of in depth study. For those that wish to self-pace due to family, work and other commitments, we will support you to take as long as you need to suit your lifestyle and situation and help create a study timetable that best suits YOUR needs.

CAN I JOIN THE ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING FROM ANYWHERE?

The Online Yoga Teacher Training course runs across 3 time-zones so everyone can join us. Join from anywhere in the world and have easy access to live Zoom classes and mentor sessions, as well as pre-recorded lectures, videos and readings. Can't join live sessions due to your situation? Not a problem - all lives are recorded and uploaded for you to learn from in your time.

HOW IS THE SCHEDULE OF LIVE ZOOM CLASSES CREATED?

The live schedule is organised around multiple time zones such as Europe, USA, Australia and more. We send out a questionnaire to all students that are going to complete the lives that month. Once we have the requests of time preferences such as morning, weekends, afternoons and the time zones of the group we then create the schedule for the needs of the students so we are meeting each student at that time. Live classes can be missed and you do not need to attend all live classes. If you miss one you can watch the recording which is uploaded for you to view. We are the only online school to uniquely create a bespoke schedule each month to suit the needs of our specific students, and we feel this is part of the 'Santosha difference'!

CAN I JOIN EVEN IF I HAVE INJURIES?

At Santosha we believe yoga is for everybody and all bodies! You do not need to have the perfect, injury free body to be a yoga teacher, or to join us on the course. You can absolutely participate in the course - and go on to teach yoga - utilising modifications or alternate postures. We have a strong focus on ensuring we are teaching safe and sustainable practices for all yogis and providing options to support this. When you sign up for the course we will ask you to let us know of any injuries so we can share these with your teachers and ensure that you are kept safe and looked after in any live classes. You can always update them at the start of class if anything changes or you need additional assistance as well. We actually find that teachers who have had issues themselves with their bodies are far better at being aware of student's limitations and keeping them safe, as they are conscious of the care needed to look after an injury or area with limited flexibility or mobility. So instead of thinking of your injuries as a hindrance to teaching and participating in the course, realise that they can be an asset to your awareness and understanding as a teacher.

WHAT STYLE OF YOGA IS TAUGHT ON THE ONLINE RYT-200 COURSE ?

The Yoga we teach on our Yoga Teacher Training courses is an authentic 'vini' flow - which connects Hatha Yoga postures in short flowing Vinyasa sequences. The Yoga taught draws from the Sri T Krishnamacharya lineage - a therapeutic and holistic approach to teaching the goal of which is to create healing and wellbeing in mind, body and breath. All our teachings have been passed down through the Sri T Krishnamacharya lineage, building a strong and authentic foundation for your teaching and practice. This legitimate source ensures what you teach is safe and effective. You know what you are sharing is the real deal - based on authentic wisdom built upon by Yogis for thousands of years!

WHEN WILL I BE READY TO TEACH YOGA?

You will be ready to teach straight away once you graduate, having gained the skills, knowledge and confidence to sequence and lead classes with ease! A lot of our 2020 online yoga teacher training graduates are already teaching yoga online and in person all around the world. Every yoga instructor is always a student at heart who will continue to learn and develop both their teaching and practice for life.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED TO PASS THE COURSE?

You will practice teaching throughout the course and gain feedback and advice. Then you will submit a yoga class that you have filmed as part of your final assessment – this does not need to be high-quality footage, and can be shot on a phone. We can assist you with any part of this you find challenging! Providing that you have satisfied all the assessment criteria outlined above you will receive your certification.

I FEEL TO SCARED TO TEACH! CAN I STILL JOIN YOU?

Yes, of course! Rest assured many of our students come into the course feeling fear around teaching, public speaking or just doing something new. We completely understand, which is why we take such care to create a supportive and accepting space like no other you will have ever experienced. We work with you where you are at, to help you gain the confidence and skills to be ready - and eager - to share what you have learned if that is your goal. It is perfectly normal to feel nerves around stepping into something new and unknown and we work to help you overcome the most common blockages standing in your way of being the shining and confident teacher you have always wished to become, in a way that best suits YOUR individual nature and strengths.

SANTOSHA YOGA Teacher training FAQS

Online Yoga Teacher Training – Common Concerns

WHAT EXPERIENCE/QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU NEED FOR THE ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

A passion for yoga and a desire to transform your life for the better is all you need to join us on our Certified Online Yoga Teacher Training. We will teach you everything you need to develop a self-practice tailored for you and to safely and effectively teach yoga to others - along with tools for happier, more authentic heart-centered living.

I'M NOT SUPER FLEXIBLE, CAN I STILL JOIN UP?

Our philosophy is that there is no ``one size fits all yoga``. Yoga should fit your body, not the other way around. Some people may never get into particular postures because of genetics, injury or other factors, but this does not hinder your ability to teach and share yoga. If you are practicing and teaching with attention and intention following the foundational principles of yoga which you learn on the course, it does not matter if you can form every shape perfectly.

HOW PROFICIENT AT YOGA DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO JOIN THE SANTOSHA RYT-200 YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

An advanced practitioner is not necessarily a person who can move deeply into advanced postures; an advanced practitioner is someone who comes to the mat with a level of maturity, a willingness to learn and an understanding of the limits of their own body. Keep in mind that this program is not only for aspiring teachers but for people who want to deepen their practice. For both students wishing to seek a deeper understanding and take their practice to a more advanced level or for those who wish to teach, there are no prerequisites for this course.

I AM FAIRLY NEW TO YOGA. WILL I BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE TRAINING?

As the course is not purely asana (physical postures) based it does not matter if you do not have an advanced practice. You will be learning much more than just the asana postures. All we ask for a Santosha student is an open mind and heart and willingness to commit yourself to your online yoga study.

I AM VERY BUSY! WILL THE COURSE BE FLEXIBLE ENOUGH FOR ME?

Our Santosha Fully Certified 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training online course is 100% flexible and you can choose your own pace of learning to become the amazing teacher you are meant to be. We understand life can get in the way of dreams, and we want to help you make the most of this opportunity to study from home. Whether you’re working full-time, parenting, studying, shift-working – or just a long To-Do list, our online yoga community will support you to make sure you fulfil your goal of becoming an accredited yoga teacher.

I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING YOGA FOR A LONG TIME, WILL THE ONLINE YTT COURSE BE SUITABLE FOR ME?

A long time practice is a wonderful aspect that will serve you well during the Yoga Teacher Training but it doesn't mean that you have to be an experienced Yogi to do a YTT - or that as an experienced Yogi, you will not learn anything new! You will be taught how to teach Yoga authentically as it was supposed to be taught, taught how to modify and adapt poses to suit your students individual needs, how to use the breath appropriately and much more. Your own practice will expand in a beautiful way.

WILL I BE ACCEPTED INTO THE SANTOSHA LEVEL 1 RYT-200 YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

Yes, we believe that all people are deserving of changing their lives. Subsequently, the only prerequisite is a sincere desire in your heart to change not only your life, but the lives of others and to fully dedicate yourself during the training.

I HAVE AN INJURY, WILL I BE OKAY TO ATTEND THE LIVE ZOOM CLASSES?

As long as you work to your own level - resting whenever you need - and let the teachers know if any health issues arise, then you will have no trouble with the classes. However, it is your responsibility to: Let all your teachers know (we give them a list of injuries but it helps to remind them in the live zoom classes) and follow all modifications given and speak up if pain or discomfort still persists and further assistance/ modification is needed. Rest when needed, and take breaks during class rather than push through any pain/ discomfort. Please communicate any changes in your condition with our team so we can best look after you.

WILL I FEEL SUPPORTED DURING MY ONLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

Like yoga itself, the course goes far beyond the physical practice – this is a deeply connected mentally and spiritually rewarding yoga journey from our heart to yours. As soon as you join us, you become a loved member of the Santosha family. You have a group of supportive teachers, mentors and fellow students with you at every step. Every month you can join the next group to attend live classes or watch the recordings until you have completed your training! This allows you to benefit the most from this opportunity to become a certified teacher in a way that most enhances your life and empowers you through yoga.

DOES THE COURSE MEASURE UP TO AN IN PERSON TRAINING?

Yes. Our course is live – not pre-recorded! You will learn to teach Live from our teachers, mentors and masters. Our team have worked hard to ensure our Santosha RYT-200 Online Yoga Teacher Training will deliver the same high level of quality, support and expertise students have come to expect from Santosha. We have further enriched and added depth to our training so you can benefit from our signature teachings from our master teachers as a virtual live training in the comfort of your own home. You will be attending live asana and meditation classes, posture clinics, lectures and will receive live support sessions with your mentors. The course is delivered across three time zones so you will always be able to attend a class.

I HAVE BEEN INJURED, CAN I BE A YOGA TEACHER?

You do not need to have the perfect, injury free body to be a yoga teacher. If there are postures you cannot demonstrate in a class you can honestly explain to your students the reasons why and get a class member to demo the posture for you if needed, or work off verbal cues. We actually find that teachers who have had issues themselves with their bodies are far better at being aware of student's limitations and keeping them safe, as they are conscious of the care needed to look after an injury or area with limited flexibility or mobility. So instead of thinking of your injuries as a hindrance to teaching and participating in the course, realise that they can be an asset to your awareness and understanding as a teacher.

IF I HAVE INJURIES WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please inform us as soon as you can with regards to any injuries. Our teachers are trained to take injuries into account and will teach accordingly, but the more warning we have the more information we can gather to best assist you. It is also your job to speak up and let your online asana (and postures) teacher informed if conditions worsen or change. As long as you work to your own level - resting whenever you need - and let the teachers know if any health issues arise, then you will have no trouble with the classes. We have had injured and pregnant students complete the training many times.

I’M PREGNANT, CAN I STILL ATTEND THE COURSE?

It is possible to complete the course while pregnant, but we ask that the decision is made only with the consultation and full support of your doctor. Only they can advise if this is the best course of action for you. All pregnant students must provide medical clearance via a medical certificate on the first day of the training and email Santosha upon enrollment to formulate an individual pregnancy plan to best keep you (and baby!) safe and comfortable during your time with Santosha. You must keep teachers advised of any physical ailments or issues arising from your pregnancy, so they can best assist and support you when needed.

I SEE A GREAT DEGREE OF COST VARIATION IN ONLINE COURSES FOR 200 HR YOGA TEACHER TRAININGS. WHY IS SANTOSHA PRICED AS IT IS?

Santosha has been running teacher trainings and retreats since 2008 – meaning we can celebrate 12 amazing years of helping our students transform their lives and step into their strength. Our founder Sunny has gathered an incredible team of teachers and support staff, who share her passion for sharing the benefits of yoga and sincere desire to help others live their best, most fulfilled and openhearted life. They can’t wait to meet you and get started with you on this journey. Santosha offers live classes, mentors to provide you with support throughout the course, the course is run across 3 time zones, we offer 24 hour communication; and registration with Yoga Alliance that allows you begin teaching in online, in gyms and studios immediately upon graduation.

ARE ALL COURSES THE SAME?

No. Our courses offer quality, depth and substance. Santosha has been running our in-person courses for over 12 years and an online/distance learning yoga teacher training course for 10 years. Our teachers are Master teachers who specialise in their areas of expertise and bring you comprehensive course modules based on their collective decades of practice and study. This isn’t a fast track course to a qualification, this is a nurturing life changing and transformative experience to enable you to become the amazing yoga teacher you were meant to be!

WHAT IF MY CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE?

If anything changes for you during the Online Yoga Teacher Training course you just need to let us know. Need to change your pace or take longer to graduate and gain your certification? Not an issue! Need longer to pay off your course? Our payment plans can be adjusted to help you pay at a rate that suits your financial sitaution.

I FEEL A BIT NERVOUS ABOUT DOING THIS COURSE. SHOULD I STILL DO IT?

Yes! This probably means you are ready to step into something new but you just need that extra bit of courage to make the next brave step. You are welcome to write to us and let us know about this and we can happily provide extra support - both before and during your time with us on the course.
