Thanks for visiting. I'm not sure where to start, but I'm sure other teachers will chime in on this thread. I should let you know that Aura doesn't have an easy - quick - pass them all yoga teacher course. It will take effort on your part but it's worth it. With what you know about yoga you might be better to try the intro course first.
Here are my answers to some of your questions.
1. Would the basic course be quicker?
Yes, because it is 40 hours less. 240-200=40
2. What's the fastest I could finish this course?
I'm not sure because each of us is different, but if you don't know much about yoga the basic course is going to take a few months of serious work. Then you still have work on teaching skills. Its alot different than spinning.
3. How quick is their turn around time after I send my exams in?
Aura has been back logged for the past two years. If you live in the US, it may be 2- 3 weeks for a turn around and there is no guarantee that you will pass the first time.
4. How tough are the tests? Like do they give true or false, multiple choice, essay format or a mix?
The exams aren't easy, but they're doable. The written exam is essay format. Paul dsn't believe teachers will remember true or false exams and I agree you wouldn't remember it a week after you took a true or false exam. The same applies to multiple choice answers. Some people just wing it and guess. You can't do that with written answers.
Last answer: They don't have hidden fees. There's shipping costs. They have the lowest re-cert fee I know of. If your exams are over a year late you pay a low extension fee but that's it. There are no test fees, retest fees, appplication fees, etc.
Happy hunting. You won't be sorry because you'll really learn about teaching yoga.
