Frequently Asked Questions: 100hr HeartRise Training

1. Do I need to be a yoga teacher to take this training?

No, you do not need to be a yoga teacher to take this training. The HeartRise Yoga for Children training has no prerequisites. If you are a certified yoga teacher, upon completion of this training you will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RCYT. Graduates who are not yoga teachers are not eligible for this designation. (See question #4).

2. What if I need to miss a session?

Prior to registering, please let us know if you need to miss a particular class and we will consider your situation. If illness or something unexpected occurs and you need to miss a class, homework will be assigned. In some cases, if possible, the session may be videotaped for you. Because of the time & energy involved in preparing, tracking, and reviewing homework for certification purposes, there is a $40 per lecture fee for each missed session.

The training cost is $1855 plus HST ($2096.15). The tuition includes 100 hours of instruction and a comprehensive training manual. DevaTree School of Yoga is registered through both Yoga Alliance and the Canadian Yoga Alliance. All DevaTree 100-hour trainings are eligible to be used toward completion of the 300/500-hour Advanced Level Certification, provided that you are already certified at the 200-hour level.

4. Will I be able to teach yoga to children after graduating, if I am not already a yoga teacher?

Yes! HeartRise Yoga for Children is a specialization program and graduates who are not certified at the 200-hour level will receive a Certificate of Completion.
