As soon as you pay for Module I, you will receive an access code from our team. We recommend making this payment at least 30 days prior to Module I, to provide ample time to complete the 100 hours of pre-training material. Your reading list can be found
What is the Pre-Training curriculum and how long will it take me to complete?
There is a total of 100 hours of self-study in the Pre-Training curriculum, which are divided into four 25-hour courses. Each of the 25 hours of required pre-training curriculum, called a “Course,” corresponds with a Module of the training. If you plan to take all four modules, we recommend completing all four Pre-Training Course before entering the first week of your training. If you are taking only part of the training, you are only required to complete the Pre-Training Courses for the modules you are participating in. We recommend completing one 25-hour course per week in the four weeks leading up to your training – though feel free to move ahead at your own pace.
WHY ARE SOME COURSE SO LONG AND OTHER COURSE IS SO SHORT?
Most professional, fulltime courses are four weeks long (like ours). There are some 7-21 day courses out there, but for a Yoga Alliance course, it’s not possible to complete your required training hours in less than 4 weeks. With thousands of graduates, various formats, and the four-week period seems to be the perfect amount of time. The extremely long courses (two-to-three months, for example) usually have hundreds of students per course, so the added time is not added study or training, it's just extra time needed logistically to make the practice teaching happen for such a large group. The best courses in the world have less than 50 students and consist of 200 hours of in person training.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE ME A JOB AFTER GRADUATING?
It’s important to remember that getting teaching jobs is like getting any job. It depends on you, your interview, your experiences, and your character. Oscillation Yoga regularly hires and helps others hire from our graduating classes, but we cannot possibly guarantee employment in the same way a university cannot guarantee employment. That said, we have not had one single graduate who was serious about teaching professionally who was not able to find work. In some cases, teachers wish they had more classes or would prefer to teach in a different location or different facility, but those who want to teach are finding jobs. Right now, there are more opportunities available than teachers so graduates do very well for themselves in the yoga market.
