OTYF yoga teacher training is deeply rooted in the philosophy that each person IS an authentic and natural leader of change and possibility through yoga.
Will I be qualified to teach through this training?
Once students have completed all of the sessions and received a certificate of completion, they will be eligible to apply to the Yoga Alliance to be registered as 200-hour teachers. Teachers will also be eligible to apply to OTYF for continuing mentorship and assistance with yoga project development!
Who leads the training?
Ruthie Goldman Van Wijk, the director and founder of OTYF, is the designer and lead instructor of the training. She will be assisted by many members of the OTYF Creation Team throughout the training.
What language will the training be held in?
Most trainings will be led in English, and some will feature Arabic translation. If you require translation to participate, please contact us!
How much yoga experience do I need?
Some experience with a yoga practice is encouraged. That being said, if you are drawn to teaching yoga, this is for you!
How much does it cost?
Cost varies by location. Please see location page for more information.
Is this open for men and women?
Wisconsin and Ontario teacher trainings are open to both men and women. To create a safe and welcoming space for women in the region, the majority of our trainings in Palestine are limited to women only at this time. However, we do have a men's training in planning for Beit Jala, Palestine in January, 2014!
Do I have to do all parts to be certified?
Yes! Attendance at all sessions and workshops is required for certification.
Whom can I contact if I have more questions?
Please send any questions to email@example.com with any other questions you may have.
