How is the Program Assessed?
There are two assessment components: a multiple-choice written assessment, as well as a practice teaching element. The practice teaching is self-assessed – this means that you find some volunteers and practice teaching 5 Core Yoga classes with a variety of people, and then go through the practice teaching journal to self-assess how things went ie: what flowed, what didn’t flow, what you want to practice more, and what was your volunteer’s feedback. Once you have completed your written assessment and five practice teaching sessions, return your assessment forms to firstname.lastname@example.org for review and to receive your certificate of completion.
