What is flexible scheduling?
Our flexible scheduling allows you to create your own teacher training schedule to fit your needs. You can come to all of our available trainings (getting you through the program faster) or to just one. We have open enrollment so you can get started with our program whenever you are ready.
Are there any other costs like workshops?
Your tuition covers all of the 200 and or 300 Hour Requirements for your Certification (RYT 200, RYT 300).
How much experience should I have with yoga?
Preferably one year as a rule of thumb. Feel free to contact us with more specific questions.
Flexible teacher training - will I interact with any other teachers in training?
Yes. You will get the opportunity to interact with trainees at all stages of the program, allowing you to share experience.
Am I able to experience a class before enrolling in the program
Are classes at your studio included?
Yes, all of Essencia’s regular, weekly classes as well as some specialty classes and workshops are part of the Teacher Training fee. The only exception would be when the Essencia Studio has been rented out for a private event/seminar, which often will be offered to you for a 30% discount.
How many classes are required?
The number of classes above and beyond what is required in your training with me, your primary, E-RYT 500, is approximately 20 hours. The specifics of how these can be met will be laid out in our first session. It does involve you being able to get those hours met at Essencia’s studio, under varying styles of teachers and classes, or under a local studio near you. Feel free to ask any further specific question.
Are their physical or written tests?
Consistent assessments and evaluations are taking place. Be prepared for discussions and practice teaching along the way.

We take joy in giving our teachers space to expand their skills and experience and grow their classes with their contagious appreciation of yoga.
What is the bridge program?
The bridge program allows you to take the tuition you paid from your CYT 200 program and put it directly towards our RYT 200 Hour program. If you would like to take our RYT program after two years following your CYT program, there is a “bridge fee” of $250, otherwise there is no additional cost.
