Living Yoga – A Unique 300 Hour Specialized Certification Program

With Rae Indigo

Living Yoga is the 300 Hour Program offering Graduates of the 200 Hour Program the opportunity to specialize in the following trainings:

· Anatomy/Therapeutics

· Philosophy/Meditation

· Or work with us to design your own specialization

All 500 Hour candidates will be working under direct guidance of Rae Indigo throughout the entire certification process.

Student eligibility for this 300 Hour Living Yoga Certification requires a Yoga Alliance certificate proving completion of the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. Students also have the option to register directly for the 500 Hour Teacher Training Program without a prior certification and as soon as they have completed the initial 200 Hour requirements they qualify to immediately begin their 300 Hour Living Yoga component.

Schedule:

These Living Yoga 300 Hour Programs are specifically designed with consideration for each individual student’s unique schedule and particular specialization.  The specific path to each student’s 500 Hour Certification is determined through personalized coaching and counsel from Rae Indigo. Below please find Teacher Training Requirements, Contact Hours and Tuitions.

Attendance of these Teacher Training programs is the principle way of fulfilling your 120 Required Contact Hours. Additionally students can obtain contact hours by public class apprenticeship, working privately with Rae and/or teaching Yoga in her company and under her direction.  An initial consultation with Rae will determine a “Specific Schedule” and “Contact Hours Assignment” tailored to your needs.

These Living Yoga programs are personalized and designed so students can complete their course requirements over a period of weeks, months or even years, according to each student’s particular schedule and the times they’re available.

Those students entering all the various formats of the Living Yoga program need to understand that core daily required hours will be expected of them, this required time will include self practice, meditation, pranayama, reading of required books, homework assignments, plus assisting/adjusting public classes and teaching practice.

Important Note:

Comprehensive knowledge (both written and verbal) of all 200 Hour Teacher Training Modules is a prerequisite to the Living Yoga program.  All prospective 300 and 500 Hour Students must submit themselves to a preliminary “Placement Examination”; this will be used to determine their proficiency. It will be required that all students demonstrate proficiency for all subjects, wherever this requirement is not met the corresponding Curriculum Lectures must be attended and/or the audio file accessed for study.  Final examination for students will cover all this material.
