Frequently Asked Questions: 50hr Kirtan Academy

1. How much yoga experience do I need to take this training?

None. As part of the training, there is a gentle and nourishing yoga practice in the mornings to help you open your body for sitting and being in stillness. The classes are designed for all levels. If you are a graduate of a 200-hour teacher training, then these hours can be applied to your 300/500-hour advanced-level certification. This training is also suitable for those wishing to deepen their personal practice.
