“Am I experienced enough to join this program?”
There is no such thing! We all start where we are and increase flexibility and awareness as we journey through the same curriculum together.
“My employer won’t let me take certain days off, what can I do?”
Most employers are more than happy to negotiate days off when they know their employee will be more relaxed and productive! The Calgary School Board even concluded the results of letting their teachers attend our training paid huge dividends all around! And hey, if the CBE does it, well! Also, many trainees have taught yoga over the lunch hour to ‘pay back’ their employer’s support.
“How soon will I be teaching?”
You will begin teaching in the safety of your classroom to your fellow students. From there, you will teach special public classes set up just for you as a teacher in training.
“I have a medical issue. Will that be a drawback to joining this program?”
No, in fact, just the opposite. Managing your health issues with yoga makes you an expert on yoga and gives you the ability to better relate to student’s needs. Many yoga teachers found the path of yoga through a problem back, injury or other issues.
