What’s the Difference Between Adapted Online and Self Study
What’s the difference between the Self Study Postgraduate and the Adapted Online Postgraduate?
Both programs offer study in yoga asana, breathwork, meditation, anatomy, Ayurveda, and yoga philosophy, but there are some differences:
Adapted Online/Virtual program:
Suits those who succeed in guided study with more teacher-student contact. With live Zoom studies held over a series of weekends, you might find that the structure helps you to stay on track with your practice and studies. You might also enjoy the additional opportunity to ask questions, open discussions, and hear from other teachers.
- Live Zoom Intensives
- Deeper pose study in Vinyasa Flow
- Being part of a community of yoga teachers and teachers in training
- Practice teaching with fellow teachers
Suits those who succeed in self-paced study. You can organize your own study schedule, work at your own pace, and reach out if you have questions or need support, and join in with weekly virtual coaching sessions to ask questions, open discussions, and hear from other teachers.
- Completely self-paced
- More techniques and styles to explore (Vinyasa, Core Yoga)
- A deeper study of yoga philosophy, ethics, and evidence-based yoga
- Join in on weekly coaching to connect with other teachers
How to Register:
Once your application has been reviewed and approved, you will receive a welcome package, including details on making deposits and/or Early Bird payments. Once your payments and registration are processed, you will have access to your Online Study materials to begin your studies and practice.
What should I bring to the class?
For face-to-face or live zoom sessions, wear comfortable, stretchy clothing that moves easily with your body. Wear layers to keep you cool during practice, and warm during study hours. Have note-taking materials (pen, paper) and your water bottle.
For face-to-face courses, blankets and props will be provided, but you might like to bring your favourite sitting and meditation props (cushion, eye pillow, weighted blanket).
For zoom courses, ideally have some props (bricks, strap, blanket). If you don’t have these props, a variety of cushions and blankets, a small towel or thin scarf can be useful.
