appleyoga's 250hr Program is run over two separate modules. The first module is open to all, with the second aimed to those wishing to become a certified yoga teacher.
Module I & II have been designed to take the student/trainee teacher on a journey to deepen their yoga studies, leaving time for absorption and practice between each phase. Both modules delivers a high-level technical skill set and cutting edge anatomical education, and also offers a profound, life-changing, and transformative experience. The modules are unique and each bring something new and exciting to the appleyoga's 250hr Program.
Module I - Architecture of Asana
Module I is an opportunity to take an in depth look at the architecture of yoga poses and breath work, asana and pranayama, enlightened through the lens of anatomy and physiology.
This module is the perfect way to develop and clean up your personal practice and offers a solid foundation to build upon in training to become a yoga teacher.
This module is suitable to all except beginners and requires a minimum of 6–12mths regular yoga practice.
19–22 and 23–27 April 2017
Module II - Teacher Training
Module II moves you from student to teacher. It will provide trainees with the tools and information to teach yoga with authenticity, clarity and knowledge and offers an insight to yoga philosophy and the energy body. On this final module, trainees will be expected to bring their learning and assimilation from module I and gain experience channelling that into teaching.
This module is suitable only for trainee teachers and requires a minimum of 2-3 years regular yoga practice. (However we do review applicants on a case by case basis).

IF I DID MODULE I AND THEN DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO TRAIN TO TEACH COULD I?

DO I AUTOMATICALLY GET THE 250HR YOGA TEACHER QUALIFICATION IF I ATTEND MODULE I & II?
All teacher trainees must complete and pass a written exam, practical teaching assessment and the assigned omwork in order to gain their 250hr certification.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN'T ATTEND ONE DAY OF THE TRAINING?
In the event that full attendance is not possible, appleyoga allows for 2 missed days within the 250hr Program.
Missed sessions must be made up for certification of the training to be possible. These would be done through private catch up sessions with appleyoga faculty members. Private sessions must be completed within the course timeline. Private sessions will be charged at the rate offered by the relevant faculty member.
If a teacher trainee misses more than 2 days of the 250hr Program then certification will not be possible.
ONCE I AM A CERTIFIED TEACHER WILL I BE ABLE TO REGISTER AS A YOGA TEACHER WITH YOGA ALLIANCE?
On certification of the full 250hr Program you will be able to register with Yoga Alliance UK & USA as a 250hr Yoga Teacher as well as having 500hrs towards your 500hr certification.
For more information please visit Yoga Alliance & Yoga Alliance UK.
WHAT SUPPORT DO I GET FROM THE FACULTY DURING THE TRAINING?
If you are doing the full 250hr Program you will be allocated a mentor that can support you during your training.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO DEDICATE TO THE TRAINING OUTSIDE OF THE CONTACT HOURS?
If you aren't training to be a teacher with appleyoga then there will be some pre-course reading to enjoy to fully benefit from the course work.
If you are training to be a teacher with appleyoga then a large amount of time is needed outside of the course hours to complete the Omwork that is set. Please note that there is time between each modules to complete these and mentors will be at hand to help, should it be needed.
A dedicated daily practice is expected for teacher trainees to improve and absorb the coursework, in order to fully benefit and grasp the information taught, in preparation to hold the seat of a yoga teacher.
