Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ONLINE AND A RESIDENTIAL 300HR JYTT?
The Online TT gives you the experience of being in the teacher training on-site, but in the comfort of your own home, with the ability to study and review at your own pace. The Online TT allows you to take the course over 3 months, to study and review at your own pace, whereas the residential program is a consecutive 27 days. For the Online version, you need to find a “student” or “partner” to practice teaching and assisting with at home.
WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE THE ONLINE JYTT?
Primarily you and your curiosity! Anyone who wishes to immerse in the Jivamukti Method can take this course. The main requirement is to be present. You can find the prerequisites for the 300hr Teacher Training here; the guidelines for how to prepare, how long you should practice asana before you take the TT, etc. are the same. Otherwise, you need a computer, laptop or tablet, a yoga mat and props (min. two blocks, one belt, one blanket). A notebook and pen. One practice student for select sessions.
Platform: You can access the training via a computer, iPad, Android tablet, iPhone or Android phone, ideally with high speed WLAN internet.
Practice: You should have a place to practice and study which is clutter and distraction free, and at least spacious enough to accommodate yourself and your “practice student” safely. You will need a clear space on a sturdy wall at least the width of a yoga mat. You might consider creating a special, devotional space to enhance the spiritual mood of the Teacher Training. There will be optional recommendations given at the beginning of the TT on how to create an altar.
Self Care: Between the lectures, theoretical sections, and meditation, you could be sitting a lot. We recommend you find a comfortable, supported seat. During lectures, you might find a distraction free way of listening and walking. The TT is as mindful as the yoga practice itself. A state of steadiness (support) and an joy (free of pain) is the goal. Take breaks when you need!
DO I NEED TO BE VEGAN DURING THE ONLINE JYTT?
We encourage participants to follow our guidelines to cultivate a healthy vegan diet throughout the intense period of yoga practice during TT and beyond, as they would in the on-site TT. Just as the on-site gives on-site participants a chance to experience the amazing benefits of veganism combined with yoga, online participants will receive an introductory video along with recipies and guidelines to help facilitate that transition with ease and joy.
WHAT IS MEANT BY AT MY OWN PACE? HOW CAN THE 300HR TT FIT INTO MY SCHEDULE?
You will watch the course “on demand” on a learning platform. There are about 180 lessons total between 20 minutes and 3 hours. They include meditation, asana practice, pranayama, lectures, and satsang. You watch the lessons in order but can do so at your own schedule over the course of 3 months – we recommend that you plan to do at least 2 full TT days over the course of one week to keep up with the content of the mentor meetings. But, you can practice a meditation in the morning, go to work, do the next class later, and so on, so that it works for you.
If you want to experience the pace of the month long JYTT with full training days, you can also do that. Most residential (month long) JYTTs offer a “live on zoom” option, where you can join all or part of the lessons live if you wish.
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF MY "PRACTICE STUDENT?" DO I NEED THEM EVERY DAY?
You will need another person to practice teach to and practice assisting. Most sessions you’ll need your partner for 2-4 hours, and come within the last 2 weeks of the course. But keep in mind for the most part, you can take the course at your own pace so you can find your partner according to your schedule. It doesn’t have to be the same person every time, and it doesn’t need to be someone else in the TT. It can be a yoga student of any level, including a family member who doesn’t ususally practice yoga, which can be helpful if it’s hard to find a student outside of your household due to quarantine.
ABOUT SMALL GROUP MEETINGS
ABOUT MENTOR MEETINGS
The mentor meetings are mandatory, and conducted live on Zoom. Meetings will take 1-2 hours most Saturdays during the course and groups/times will be assigned based on what makes sense with students local timezones. Dates will be published in advance. You will not need your practice student for the meetings.You will also take midterm and final exams during menor meetings on Zoom. If you cannot attend a meeting please notify [email protected] as soon as possible but it should be avoided as much as possible!
Midterm and Final Reviews will be taken via live Zoom calls with your mentor, which takes about 90 minutes total. We will require a full video with audio recording of you teaching Class 6 and 7, showing proficiency with the assists for both classes by the end of TT as part of your final review.
DO I RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE?
Yes, upon 100% successful completion of all classes, sessions, lectures, and mentor meetings, and passing the midterm and final examinations, you will recieve the same certificate as in-person participants via mail. You will be fully certified as a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher.
