FAQ's and information on our teacher training
This course is open to anyone who is interested in either deepening their practice or diving into the possibility of teaching.
Yoga is not about how flexible or un-flexible you are. Yoga is about self-discovery and reconnecting. Opening up is all a part of the journey… so if you can’t touch your toes, no worries!
We require that you be over the age of 19 in order to graduate from the course.
We require you to have some previous yoga experience and to be in a healthy condition with an open mind and heart.
This course and program is a labor of dedication and love. We hope your experience is filled with insight, self-discovery and growth and so much more! You’ll experience and explore the physical side of the practice which is guaranteed to leave you feeling invigorated! To balance this out, we’ll explore the spiritual side of the practice and yoga off the mat.
What you give, you get back. We hope that you will come prepared to be engaged and inspired. That you will open your mind and hearts to this journey and respect the rest and dedication this journey requires. In the end, it's your journey... but we hope that you come prepared to commit to the intensive and all that it entails and some of the rules (ie: cel phones off during training) that are implemented.
As part of the second module, you’ll have a chance to practice and put your teaching chops to the mat. Richelle developed this course to give teachers-in-training the opportunity to build confidence and knowledge with real live students. You’ll graduate with practical, hands-on skills to give you a solid foundation from which to build your journey on.
Your daily schedule will depend on which immersion you're joining. But here is a general example of what your day may look like:

Yes! Our programs are designed to be intensives but at the same time we are all human! And we consider our yoga off the mat to be just as important as our practice on the mat. So you will have time to explore, play, rest and study.
One of benefits of choosing our Tulum based training is that it takes place in a working yoga studio. You’ll get invaluable hands-on experience assisting and teaching studio classes. By the time you’re ready to graduate, you’ll be ready to teach yoga classes to all levels.
