Is it possible for a person who is in his/her early 40’s to learn Yoga and teach later?
Yes, the best Yoga Teachers are the students who are serious about practice, know what they want, and are challenged along the way. Naturally athletic and youthful students can make good Yoga Teachers, but they often push their own students to do things that they naturally perceive to be easy.
I am ready to submit my exams to become a Yoga instructor. How do I submit my exams?
If you are a correspondence student, all exams must be submitted at the same time, using the same method of delivery. For example: If you are submitting exams online, use Dropbox.com to submit all exams. If you are submitting exams via regular mail, all exams must be sent that way. Exams submitted in piecemeal or by multiple delivery methods will not be accepted.
Onsite students should consult the instructor running their training.
I have purchased a Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box correspondence course. Can I transfer ownership to a friend or family member?
No, transfers of ownership on courses (Online or Onsite) are not allowed.
Am I covered by insurance when I am taking an Aura Wellness Center course?
No, Aura Wellness Center does not provide liability insurance to students or teachers. Insurance is completely separate from a certification course. Some companies, like Yoga Insurance Plus provide insurance to students as well as teachers.
Insurance is not required in order to teach, however, it is highly recommended to have it, if you are teaching classes.
What is recertification and why is it needed?
Recertification is where a teacher submits the hours they have taught, usually an assignment or workshop hours, and a recertification fee.
Recertification ensures that a teacher is keeping current with their practice. Teachers who do not keep current are more likely to harm their students due to infrequent practice.
Insurance companies and employers look for this because it differentiates an Insured teacher/employment candidate. Those who have a reputable school ensuring that their practice is current are more likely to enhance the reputation of the places they teacher for, by providing safe and current methods.
Aura Wellness Center requires re-certification on all Yoga Teacher Certification Courses.
What is the policy of Aura Wellness Center regarding abuse or harassment?
Aura Wellness Center complies with U.S. Government Policy regarding verbal abuse, written abuse, or sexual harassment. Faculty members and students must show mutual respect for each other and refrain from profanity, abusive comments, and blatant harassment.
The consequences for violating this policy are the same for a faculty member as they are for a student. Should you initiate harassing remarks, profanity, or abuse, you will be expelled, regardless if you are a student or a faculty member.
