Becoming an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher
HOW TO APPLY
- Application goes through Jivamukti Yoga Global directly, paying a non – refundable registration fee of $50 and sending in all other requirements including your preferred date and location to take the board exam.
Candidates receive feedback to their application within maximum 30 days after the application time ends by the Global Program Director (e.g. either May or November).
If you have been accepted, Jivamukti Yoga Global will contact you and ask you to pay the exam fee ($500 plus local taxes if applicable) directly to the local school. Jivamukti Yoga Global will also send a list with names and e – mail addresses to the local Program Director, so they will be able to contact you directly with all further information.
If you have been declined you will be informed about the decision without any detailed feedback. You may reapply during the next or any future application period.
Although 800-hour certification (completion of the Jivamukti Teacher Apprenticeship Program) is not required to appear before the Review Board, it is strongly recommended. In addition, it is highly recommended that candidates accumulate at least 2 years of teaching experience and 4 years of asana practice experience before appearing before the Review Board. The Board Exam is carried out at Jivamukti Yoga® centers worldwide on an as-needed basis. The Exam covers teaching skills, asana practice skills, yoga philosophy and terms, Sanskrit language, anatomy and other relevant topics through practical, interview and written components.
