Yes, I am a newbie. New to the forum, that is. My first post.
I have been praciting yoga for a few years and feel called ot teach, specifically special populations. I grew up with hip challenges that required a total hip replacement 15 years ago at the ripe ol' age of 28. Yoga has been such an amazing tool and expression in my life. I love the idea of modifying yoga for those with physical challenges, as I have modified my practice.
My question: I travel a great deal, living in the northern US (rurally) part of the year and in the southwest for several months in the winter. The primary barrier to certification has been the additional travel and time away from family.
I have begun researching online options, specifically looking at the 240 hour CYT program through Aura Wellness Center in Attleboro, MA. I am impressed by the thoroughness of the website, and the thoughtful responses to many questions I would have asked had they not been posted.
Right now the "online" or "self-study" option is the format that feels right for me.
Does anyone have any feedback?
-What are your thoughts on "self-study" programs?
-What do you know of Aura Yoga's program?
- Are there things I should consider before enrolling.
