Q & A:

Why are you offering all of your training modules back to back?
Many of the training modules above are offered as part of our 95 Hour Registered Children's Yoga School (RCYS), 85 Hour Registered Prenatal Yoga School or affiliate Yoga 4 Classrooms program. Each summer, we offer all modules back to back during the month of July as a convenience to those who wish to attend multiple modules in one visit or who are working to complete hours of training required to become a Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYS) or Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) through Yoga Alliance.

Can I attend only one or more modules of the summer training immersion?

Absolutely!  We are offering the summer intensive as a convenience to those who wish to complete multiple modules in one visit. However, anyone can attend any of the modules at any time, whether that be during the summer intensive or at another of our host locations nationwide. See specific training pages for all dates and locations.

I am interested in acquiring the Yoga Alliance's RCYT (Registered Children's Yoga Teacher)  or Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher designation. How can I learn more?
Please visit our 95 hour Children's Yoga School or 85 hour Prenatal Yoga Training page for details! 

How do I get to Dover and where can I stay during my visit?
For travel and preferred lodging and accommodations suggestions, please visit our Coming to Dover page!

I have questions and would like support in making my plans.
Please contact our Director of Trainings, Sally Delisle.  She is happy to support you!
