How Much Time Does it Take... What Support Do I Receive?
The 5 course series takes about 80 hours to complete and is self-paced with coaching support by our certification course manager. The work scaffolds easily as you learn simple activities, practice them with kids and then learn to create class plans or other sequences for your school, therapeutic, home or yoga studio setting.
Most folks finish the coursework in about 3-6 months (with transcripted grades available shortly thereafter, if you chose that option). There's no required timeframe for completion, there's lifetime access to course materials and you receive training on how to set up your business and our Membership Program for certified instructors supports you after certification, with video trainings, hundreds of lesson plans and a business kit of images, flyers and logos.
