Smart move! From what you said in your earlier posts, you have plenty of time. I completely support your decision to pick up the introduction to teaching yoga course. Better to build a rock solid foundation that to go in with great haste. So many people make a mistake of putting false pressure on their backs when going in to yoga teacher training. In this economy there's lots of room for self created anxiety related to personal finances and getting a dream job.
Here's a related story about needless anxiety and confusion. A friend of mine went to Baja, Mexico for an expensive three week yoga teacher intensive. But she was so messed up after she got back that she took an Aura course to learn how to create her own lesson plans. In the three weeks she was doing her pricey intensive, she said they rushed from one subject to the next an she had less than basic knowledge.
In that time and for all that money she didn't learn to create a basic class. The problem is the Yoga teacher trainers in Baja, Mexico have reserved for the place and they need bodies. With all that money on the line they won't refuse anyone, even someone who has never taken a yoga class in her life.
If you get stuck on anything, you can always ask us to point you in the right direction. The point being, we're all pulling for you. And all of us want to see you become the best yoga teacher you can be. Don't be a stranger.
