Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use the Yoga Teacher Training Certificate to teach anywhere in the world?
Yes! Our graduates teach or have taught in the USA, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, and India - to name a few.
How long is the course and when can I start?
The course runs for about 6-7 months and you can join at any time.
Graduation will depend on whether you've met all the course requirements, including attendance.
What is required for graduation?
Graduation requirements vary each semester. When you visit us for a consultation we will happily go over the requirements for your semester. Additionally, if you are taking the course for healing and/or personal growth and transformation more than teaching certification, the requirements can become more flexible based on your situation.
Will I be ready to teach classes when I graduate?
Yes. All of the tools you need are provided so that you can guide with confidence. It is important to share with the teachers before starting the course that your goal is to guide yoga classes. The most important thing is to be a yogi, then teaching will just be a part of your practice. During the Teacher Training Course, you'll have an opportunity to do a demo class. To prepare you'll be teamed up with a mentor teacher. The more that you jump into the course and your personal practice the more that you'll gain from the course in every way.
Can I keep attending the Teacher Training course after I've graduated?
Once you graduate you are eligible to apply for continued study in the Teacher Training Course for 2 additional semesters for no extra fee (as of March 2022 this is current the policy, but may be subject to change based on the situation*) so long as you are applying immediately following your graduation. As long as you keep meeting the requirements for graduation for each semester you can continuously attend. The course is based on the concept of 'Upanishad,' sitting close to the teacher. This means that even though the class is guided in a group environment, everything we do in class is personal and geared towards the individual, directly from teacher to student.
Many of our members have graduated several times and continue to learn, grow and share with the group in this way by returning to study. While the core coursework stays the same, every semester the content is presented differently. The direction of each class is tuned to the needs of the current members, so it is dynamic and shaped through participation.
When and where are the classes?
The courses are on Saturdays (excluding the first Saturday of every month)
from 9am - 1pm at the Siji Center unless otherwise announced in advance.
Is the Teacher Training class taught in Korean?
Yes, the class is taught in Korean, but we have 2 lovely translators who have been translating this class for over 3 years together. They work very diligently to provide you with the best translation possible. Also, if you want to improve your Korean language skills, this is a really good way to study. It is important to note that knowledge of Korean is not necessary to take this course.
