Full attendance in the Yoga Teacher’s Training is required for Yoga Alliance certification. It is not recommended or desired that you anticipate missing any weekends or segments. In the case of emergency only, making up the weekend will require extra time, money and sometimes travel.
You will need to pay the Make Up Fee ($200), this covers administrative costs in rescheduling. Then depending on what was taught during the missed session, you will have to pay (in addition to the $200 Make Up Fee), the private hourly rate from the teacher who taught the segment that was missed. Most instructors charge a make up fee of $75 an hour, (this is in addition to the $200). If you miss more than one weekend, or three full days of our Teacher Training, you will be dropped out of the program and made to re-enroll in another future program.
Yoga Alliance will not certify you until you have completed your certificate through the North Georgia Yoga Center. Again, you are strongly urged to NOT enroll going into a Yoga Teacher’s Training knowing you will need a make up. It is costly, and it will most likely never be the same quality of learning as with your original group of peers.
