Depending on the lesson, you have up to 12 months from day one of the current course to complete missed lessons. We trust that our bi-weekly classes allow time to make-up lessons and you may also participate in other Pura Yoga TT’s to make-up any special workshops missed.

“Do I have to know a lot about yoga to take the course? What are the minimum requirements needed to take Pura Yoga’s Teacher Training?
“What happens after I complete the course? Can I apply with the Yoga Alliance?”
Absolutely!!! Upon successful completion of the course, you qualify to apply to register with the Yoga Alliance to become a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher).
“Why is the tuition less than most yoga teacher training programs in town?”
I don’t know “why”, yet, we have low overhead costs by not owning a physical yoga studio and offering services at specific times by partnering with other sources. Our main goal is to offer the training at an affordable rate and to have payment plans available.
What is REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by laying on the hands or about 4 inches above the body. Reiki means Divine Life Force.
Why is Level I & II training provided as a gift to the students?
Pura Yoga has so much to give thanks to the Universe for. This is a gesture of ”paying it forward” and it is a great complement for yoga teachers. It is provided, free of charge, for those students willing to receive. Additional hours are required. It is not a standard in the Yoga Alliance approved curriculum and not a requirement for graduation. The classes are taught separate from the training. Yet, this is our gift to our students, free of charge.
