Please note that you can miss a maximum of 27 training hours, and you will have one year from the last day of your program to complete your attendance requirements. If you miss more than 27 hours or do not complete your make up hours within one year, you will NOT receive a passing status and will be required to pay in full to retake the training.

Option 1: Schedule a private session with your trainer at some point during the program. The cost of a private session is $200 per hour.

Please note: Only two sessions of private instruction, regardless of hours, are allowable and are subject to trainer availability. The remainder of your missed time will need to be made up in a future training (see Make Up option 2 below). Private make up sessions are only an option during your current training and are not an option once the program is complete.

Option 2: You can attend the days in a class you missed in an upcoming training of the same format, free of additional class training charge. You have one year from your program end date to complete your make up classes. If the training is sold out, you will need to wait for a future training with space available to complete your make up.

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND ON 300-HOUR HOMEWORK?

Expect to spend between 3-4 hours a week on homework. The homework is designed to support the material covered in class and help you integrate what is presented into your own practice and teaching. If you are not planning on teaching after this course, you may choose not to complete all of the homework assignments and take the course for non-credit. However, if you wish to receive your certificate for the course, you must attend all the sessions and complete all the homework assignments.


WHAT IS THE YOGA ALLIANCE?

Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher. Three River Yoga Trainings are approved at the Yoga Alliance 200-Hour and 300-Hour level in the United States.
