Students who complete their training before 30 September 2020 are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).

How the training works

Tooling needed

  • Daily access to a solid internet connection and appropriate device in a quiet place where you are comfortable and un-distracted with at least as much floor space as one yoga mat
  • A Facebook account and email address
  • Access to Zoom for special classes, weekly discussion, and practice teaching
  • A journal for written notes
  • Self-motivated mindset, a desire to know more about and develop a regular yoga practice, and the ability to show up for deadlines or reviews

There are 180 contact hours and 20 non-contact hours. You will participate in 12 units via Zoom, Facebook (private group), and YouTube. Over the 12 weeks, there are 210 hours so 200-hour students have more than enough while 300-hour students will be required to take advanced classes, workshops, and training with them over the 12 week period. Assignments will be announced and explained during each video or posted as a daily announcement. Please remember each day should not exceed 30 minutes of homework time.

That is about two and a half hours of homework each week (reading, writing, creating, practice teaching videos, etc.). Deadlines to submit responses or discussion to all videos will be posted. Possible evening virtual hangouts and workshops will be live on Zoom. Videos will be divided into units. The 30-minute homework will be given in different formats and exercises to match video segments or units to keep it fun. Comments, discussion, and sharing are very important parts of any teacher training, but especially this online format. They thank you for your earnest participation in the comments and group posts.

Weekly class modules will be created as private events or groups on Facebook. Videos will be streamed live starting Monday through Friday each week. This means you will even have time on Saturday and Sunday to catch up on unwatched footage and complete read, write, and create assignments. You will have some final deadlines and the weekly deadline for all homework and reviews from the video footage are due by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday before the next week begins.

You can access to the video footage each week, one-on-one mentorship with instructors during the 12-week series, and your complete 62-page yoga teacher training manual in PDF format. On Monday, August 17th at 4:00 p.m., you must have your topic for your graduation picked out. You will talk about this together through-out the first six weeks of training. On Friday, September 25th at 4:00 p.m., graduation must be completed and certificates arrive electronically at this time.

Timing of sessions (GMT-4)

Rise + Vibe will offer an average of three hours of video footage per day, five days per week, Monday to Wednesday and Friday, with roughly 30 minutes of reading, writing, and creating assignments per day. That is three and a half hours per day in five days per week, 17 and a half hours per week in total. Some classes or lectures take one hour while others may run in three. You will be a little bit flexible with the schedule.

You will join live footage sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. with Chrissy, Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. with Mindy. Videos will be available all week long. You are only encouraged to tune in live when possible and required to complete the videos and unit check-ins. The exact schedule is subject to change.

Course information

Rise + Vibe Yoga provides a dynamic and accessible training for yogis looking for an elevated practice. It is their goal to first encourage their students into a practice that supports their own health and happiness and to offer comprehensive training in philosophy, teaching methodology, business, anatomy, physiology, historical context, and cultural appreciation. The school is founded in the eight-limb system with an emphasis on mantra, asana, and pranayama. You will practice a lot of Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga with an introduction to other styles like Yin, Restorative, yoga for kids, and more.

This is in response and regulations around COVID 19 as advised by Yoga Alliance through September 30, 2020. The Rise + Vibe school has a connection to the modern-day Krishnamacharya lineage offering foundations in traditional Vinyasa and less-traditional Asthanga practices. You explore physical and energy bodies, focus on teaching styles that offer overall accessibility and the philosophy to live your yoga. The program offers dynamic instruction in the study categories:

1. Technique, training, and practice

Styles are founded in Ashtanga and Vinyasa with an intention to introduce complementary styles like Yin, Restorative, and meditation practices. These hours are spent practicing yoga, asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra, and more.

2. Anatomy and physiology

Expect to study the human body on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. From the anatomical systems of the body to maps of prana running along with your nervous system and the mind or brain connection, topics here are currently relevant and always evolving as Western and Eastern sciences start to work more closely side by side.

3. Teaching methodology

In the name yoga teacher training, this is where you break down safety, lesson planning, business, marketing, client relations, standards of practice, and much, much more. You will leave the Rise + Vibe training with resources and knowledge moving into the modern yoga world.

4. Philosophy and lifestyle

The history of yoga is rich and deep. While it is still much you do not know, what you do know is incredibly valuable and important to be successful teachers of yoga. These hours are spent discussing the Yama and Niyama, historical context, classical texts or philosophies, cultural appropriation, and meaningful mindsets.

5. Rise + Vibe

Every yogi comes to this yoga teacher training for a different reason. This part of your training is personal and unique, time spent journaling and preparing for your graduation. Why are you here? Both in yoga teacher training and the world? How is yoga relevant to you? Each student will be expected to start graduation prep about half-way through their training. Talk to Chrissy if you have any questions.

Daily journal

Your teacher training journal entries are the first step in developing a daily practice. Set a time of day, or two, to sit down with your journal and be with yourself. Yogis cultivate knowledge not only through the practice and study of yoga but through the study of the self (Svādhyāya). Pay attention to what you write down or what you do not write down. Notice what is difficult about daily practice, also find out what can be rewarding from this discipline. Journals are private and open to any thoughts, feelings, experiences, or conversations that arise, but here is a list of things you can keep in your journal:

  • Practice log: reflect on your asana, pranayama, or meditation
  • Dreams: begin to track your dreams
  • Daily recap: just write about what you do and who you see each day
  • Art: draw yoga poses, doodles, landscapes, your pets, your friends
  • Sanskrit: writing and rewriting new words for memorization
  • Poetry

Things that will probably come up

  • Shitty connection issues

The instructor lives in the Dominican Republic. Sometimes the power goes out, or the internet gets blocked. Some days, she may post two or three videos to get a jump start on the week. She will try to announce when she does this, but regardless, each video will be available by its scheduled daily time, if not sooner, each week. You may also have connection issues, trying at least streaming videos with your desired connection space before enrolling in this training.

  • Distractions and obstacles

You will actually cover this in the training because the Yoga Sutras speak about them. But she asks you to carve out the one to three hours segment each day if you can. Or if four hours twice a week is better, make a commitment to some sort of routine and save time for stuff to come up. She likes to think of this as a time that could be like getting stuck in traffic on the way to the studio or a friend calling before you leave the house.
