Frequently Asked Question
Curiosity is a natural part of life. We've covered the basic questions we think might be asked here. Don't hesitate to Contact Us with any additional questions or for clarification.
What kind of Yoga Experience should I have before taking your training?
We request you have a consistent home practice. We know that there are exceptions. You may schedule a private yoga session with Marc to assess your readiness for our program free of charge.
I have been practicing with a book/dvd/audio/youtube. Can I still apply?
Our training is intensive and in depth from the very first day. We really need you to have been working with a live teacher in a studio setting for a minimum of 6 months. If you would like to accelerate this process you can meet with Marc for private instruction before the start of the training and attend his regular classes.
How old do I need to be?
We require that you be 18 years old at the beginning of the training. You may apply at 17 as long as you will be 18 when the training starts.
What if I don't want to be an instructor?
People take RYT programs for all sorts of reasons. Cat Tilt Studio's training has a focus on areas of Yoga not covered as in depth as other trainings and a more academic approach that may give you a much deeper knowledge than you have had before.
How much study is there outside of the scheduled hours?
You will have homework. This is an academic program. You can expect reading, writing, journaling, self study and a daily practice.
What if I miss a weekend or can't come?
Life happens. We understand that. However, Teacher Training is a major commitment. We will schedule makeup sessions on an as needed basis and there will be a charge of $100 an hour. Please call us to discuss your concerns at 919-867-1133.
