200-hour Online Yoga Training F.A.Q
Our 200hr Online Trauma Informed, Accessible and Adaptive yoga training is designed for everyone interested in learning an approach to yoga with a soft spot for accessibility and social justice.
We encourage our trainees to use the skills that are learned on our program for community outreach. To offer their knowledge and bring it to the people who need it the most. From first responders to homeless shelters and everything in-between as well as yoga studios and community centres.
We offered a unique approach to yoga.
Most students finish a standard 200-hour training and lack the basic understanding of how to volunteer through yoga and work with specific populations. Yoga teachers are forced to spend thousands of dollars to specialize and learn more.
Our training offers a well rounded approach to yoga that elevates the role of a yoga teacher by having a broad understanding about how the practice can be adapted for community outreach. Our program gives the tools necessary for any caregiver, first responder or yoga enthusiast to use this knowledge for their own well being as well as the well being of their clients, students, and patients.
After the challenges of the last few years we understand that the way that yoga used to be shared and taught has shifted. With the rise of technology we know that this is the perfect time to make this knowledge available to as many people as possible.
We are currently experiencing a mental health crisis in all fronts. Our faculty is composed of so many different specialists offering an understanding of what the needs of our times are. From teaching yoga to kids and teenagers. And helping our caregivers and students to see yoga from a greater lens.
You will learn an approach to yoga that takes into consideration every aspect of the human experience.
You will learn to share the practice in a trauma informed way favoring student’s agency and invitational language for exploration. You will learn an approach to the practice that is accessible for everyone regardless of the level of flexibility, strength, fitness and background.
Every single movement and posture that you will learn in this training will be explained and broken down in ways that you can share with different parts of your community whether you practice standing, seated, or adaptive yoga.
This is not a fast paced, performative postural training. On the contrary, we invite students of all ages to learn a more mindful, meaningful and impactful way to share yoga. Including the subtle aspects of breath awareness, mindfulness and nervous system regulation.
No previous experience is required. There is no age limit or ability expectations.
The reality is that until today, most yoga programs offered online or in person don’t explore the use of yoga for community outreach and social justice. We are proud that our program offers everything that is missing in a regular 200-hour and more.
Even if you have taken a 200-hour training before, chances are that our content will be unique and you will still have plenty to learn.
We welcome you to our program. By learning these techniques we can do so much good in the world. This is not a performative practice.
We can all learn this practice at any age. We believe that our practice should be shared in a way that is sustainable.
We don’t believe in ageism. We welcome everyone of any age to our program. It’s never too late to learn yoga.
This is a 6 month program. However, once you sign up to our program you will have access to the material for an entire year after the start date.
This is an online training. Anyone with access to a computer or iPad and access to WiFi can participate in this training.
If you are interested in joining our training but you don’t have the resources needed please fill out the scholarship application and let us know how can we help.
Yes. Although the program is a hybrid of live classes and pre-recorded classes, content will be available on the start date. And new modules will be released weekly.
Yes. We offer a suggested timeline for the completion of the modules that students can cover in their own time.
During the period of 6 months we release content once a week. We do encourage participants to follow our suggested timeline, to watch the pre-recorded content, to take advantage of the live sessions and the support from other students, team leaders, faculty, but also to foster community and to finish our program in 6 months as a group.
Every other week (on Saturdays at 12pm EST time / 6pm CET), we host an optional live session via Zoom with a lead-instructor and sometimes another faculty member.
These live sessions last 2 hours, where the 1st hour is usually for Q&A, and the 2nd hour is for breakout rooms and to practice teaching.
Despite being optional, we highly recommend to attend as much as you can in order to fully benefit from this opportunity to learn and teach. Exchanging with the faculty and with the other students is more beneficial than you can imagine.
The live sessions are recorded and added to the e-learning platform a few days later. They are part of the 200-hour and have to be watched to complete the program.
Our training is a hybrid of pre-recorded talks and live sessions. Students have access to the pre-recorded content and live session recordings for an entire year after the start date.
Many participants work full time so they can benefit from having 24/7 access to the lectures. Our training also offers the opportunity to participate in live sessions and live classes fostering community and creating a safe space for exploration.
No. In order to provide a high-quality training, we first need to establish solid foundations before going deeper into specific topics. Therefore, the training is structured to optimize your learning.
New content is released every week and we have planned the training to take you from A to Z in an intentional way.
Once a week (between Sunday evening and Monday morning depending on which part of the world you live in) we release new content. Approximately 6-8 hours of content per week.
The modules have to be watched in order. There is no way to skip forward.
As soon as you enrol in our program, your team leader will reach out to you to make sure that you have all the information necessary for the program. You will be part of a small group of 4-5 participants under the guidance of your team leader.
Your team leader will remind you of assignments, deadlines, and will support and coach you during the program.
Once a month we ask our trainees to touch base with the team leader to make sure everyone feels supported.
Our students have shared with us that one of the best ways to keep up with the material is to dedicate an hour a day to the program. This way modules are not overwhelming and easier to digest.
We also encourage our students to follow the suggested timeline so that way they can take full advantage of the live sessions and the opportunity to ask relevant questions live.
We have students from all over the world living in different time zones. We do our best to schedule our live sessions at a time that works for most participants. You are required to participate in at least 40% of our live sessions.
These sessions last 2 hours, where the 1st hour is usually for Q&A, and the 2nd hour for breakout rooms and to practice teaching.
Despite being optional, we highly recommend to attend as much as you can in order to benefit fully. Exchanging with the faculty and with the other students is more beneficial than you can imagine.
Every live session is recorded and added to the e-learning platform a few days later. They are all part of the 200-hour and have to be watched.
You will be able to schedule 1-1 sessions with the lead trainers. This is an opportunity for trainees to receive specific feedback and suggestions.
You will also have regular check-ins with your team leader. We believe in the importance of constant and clear communication.
You will receive specific feedback about your progress by connecting to your team leader and lead faculty trainer.
This can happen on 1-1 scheduled sessions, or during our live practice sessions and in breakout rooms.
We have students from all different walks of life. We have students who have limited mobility, students who are wheelchair users.
For anyone who needs specific accessibility software options to be able to navigate our program please reach out at email@example.com.
You will never be asked to perform a movement or posture that is not ideal for you. Instead, you will learn to communicate to your body and make conscious decisions about what works and what doesn’t work in your body.
Each one of us is different. And the practice is not about “postures” but the experience of connection with our breath and with others.
The mission of our school is to make the practice of yoga accessible everywhere.
We present yoga in a way that can easily be applied seated on the floor, on a chair, on a wheelchair, and standing. We believe in the healing effects of this practice when it is shared in an effective and safe way.
Since our focus is to foster community, self-realization, and encourage everyone to give back to our communities, we stay away from “traditional" yoga postures such as inversions and arm balancing poses and we focus instead on the movements and postures that can easily translate across the board to different students.
At the Warrior Flow School we believe that touch is healing.
However, because we offer trauma informed education we encourage our students to become skilful in guiding students into movement with specific and effective verbal cues instead of using assists and adjustments that could have a potential triggering effect.
We offer partial and full scholarships. For those interested in applying please refer to the scholarship section and fill out our form.
We encourage members of the LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and first & second responders to apply for scholarships.
Our training has different components.
- Once you enrol on the program, you will receive access to our e-learning platform where you will be able to watch all the pre-recorded content.
- You will also receive access to our Community platform for communications that will allow you to have live interactions with other participants, reach out directly to your fellow trainees, ask any questions to faculty members, and lead trainers.
- Once the training begins, the main way of communication will be through our Community platform.
- Live sessions will happen on Zoom.
- Each participant will have access to a Google Drive folder to upload assignments and videos, and download some documents themselves.
If any of the listed above sounds complicated, send us an email so we can go over in detail about this. firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to save as many trees as possible.
Every week, you will receive the pertaining PDF’s presentation for each module. Many of our students are comfortable learning from our digital files. Other students prefer to print the documents as they are being released. It's up to you!
Life happens. We don’t expect all participants to go through the modules at the same pace. During the period of 6 months we offer three weeks off where we don’t release any content so for those students who need to catch up with content, they can do so at this time.
Since you have access to the program for an entire year we can extend the program for another 6 months. In this case the training becomes 100% self paced.
In case another extension is needed that goes beyond the first year, a fee of 50% of the original tuition will be charged to extend the access to the content past the year mark.
Good news, no 🙂
We don't believe in final exams which is only going to generate stress and anxiety without being a real indicator of how much we know about the practice. Every person is different. Every person learns differently.
However, we need to make sure you grasp the important concepts and that you are capable to teach. Each week at the end of the newly released content, there is a small quiz to check the most important points are acquired, as well as open questions for you to elaborate.
Also throughout the training, we have a set of assignments where you will be teaching in the presence of a lead instructor or submitting videos for your lead instructor to review.
We believe in continuous examination rather than a final exam.
As the program approaches the end, students will be asked to prepare a 60-min class to teach to the other trainees with the option of inviting friends and family.
To complete the training and graduate, our trainees have to:
- Submit all assignments.
- Participate in at least 5 live sessions.
- Watch all the modules and complete all the quizzes.
- Practice with 5 WFTV classes and write summary.
- Complete 6 1-1 sessions with a lead instructor.
- Complete 6 sessions with their team leader.
- Teach a 60-min live yoga class for the Warrior Flow School community.
Once you complete all requirements listed previously, you will receive a digital diploma of completion from the Warrior Flow School.
Then you will be able to go to https://www.yogaalliance.org/ and register as a new student. You will be asked to upload the diploma of completion and dates of the training.
Once this is submitted, the Yoga Alliance will contact our school to verify the identity of the trainee. Once it is confirmed from the school side, the Yoga Alliance will register you as a RYT-200 (Registered Yoga Teacher).
For students interested in launching community outreach programs in their communities anywhere around the world, our school will offer assistance during that process.
We can all make the world a better place with yoga.
