This program will unfold in modules and will include one five-day immersion retreat in June, 2017; these modules will be offered beginning September 30-October 2, 2016 and then approximately bi-monthly through 2018. In order to register with Yoga Alliance you will be required to complete all required modules and complete all contact hours with the required instructors.

Program Pre-Requisites
Acceptance into this program requires proof of completion of a Yoga Alliance RYS 200-Hour Program; this does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

Application Fee
Non-refundable Application Fee:  $250.00

Tuition
Per-module pricing; each module will range in price from $175 to $350 depending on the hours involved. Required immersion retreat price to be announced.

Program Expectations, Attendance Policy & Make-up
Upon acceptance into the program, you will complete ALL training hours as scheduled in order to receive your certificate of completion. There will be additional weekends scheduled so attendance at every weekend is not mandatory, but there are requirements for attendance with certain instructors. The scheduled training weekends are incredibly important, not only for your learning but also for the Yoga Alliance requirements of successful completion of 270 hours of contact time with instructors and 30 hours of non-contact time.

IF YOU ARE THE CERTIFICATION TRACK instead of the Yoga Alliance track the requirements will be more flexible.

Each student will also be held to a high standard of conduct, demonstrating respect for their peers and maintaining confidentiality for each person in the training. Failure to attend all required hours, or failure to complete all required work, means you will not receive a certificate of completion and not be eligible for the 300 hour Yoga Alliance RYT certification.

If you miss a session, you will be permitted to make up a maximum of five hours through extra reading and/or class observation. If you miss more than five hours of training you will have to pay $75 per hour for private instruction to make up the hours.

Cancellation, Withdrawal & Refund
No refunds are given. A credit may be applied to future trainings, but only in the case of illness or extreme circumstances.

Training Amenities
Uttara Yoga offers a centrally located, beautiful learning space on the outskirts of downtown Roanoke. The location of the trainings will depend upon the number of registrants; we are planning for the majority of classes to be held at Uttara Yoga; there is the possibility some of the trainings will take place within a 30-minute drive of Roanoke with the exception of the mandatory retreat (location to be announced). We provide a Training Manual, worksheets, study guides, hand-outs and more.

Additional Hours
You will be required to attend Sangha Sadhana meetings led by Jill Loftis; note these additional hours will be somewhat flexible but there will be a minimum number of hours of attendance.
