I'm not a yoga teacher / I don't want to teach. Is this course right for me?
Yes! This course can be counted for teacher training, but it’s also a great weekend for new yoga students and for those interested in personal practice and study.
Do I get Yoga Alliance Credit and is this a teacher training?
Yes! These courses/hours can be counted towards yoga teacher training with the yoga alliance.
How are these courses different than Jennifer's online courses?
Jennifer's online courses are based on her in-person training modules. The biggest difference is that the in-person training gives you the opportunity to work with Jennifer in person. This could involve questions, discussion, and hands on work. The in-person training also contains a more comprehensive manual and a reading list.
