WHAT MAKES EMPATH YOGA DIFFERENT FROM OTHER YOGA TRAININGS?

One of the things that makes Empath Yoga so UNIQUE is the 12 Weeks to LOVE YOUR LIFE Life Coaching Program it was built upon. 

It’s a life-changing, empowering, enlightening program that sets your feet on a new and ever-evolving, expanding path.

Live your life from a place of heightened awareness and CONFIDENCE. 

While Empath Yoga goes so much deeper than a mere physical practice, the postures (asanas) and all other aspects of the physical practice, are explored in depth. 

But we don’t stop there.

Each asana has a mental, emotional and spiritual benefit that is often overlooked. Emphasis is given to the Chakras (energy centers) and how to use them as a system for HEALTH and WELLNESS on ALL levels.

Another piece which is unique to Empath Yoga is the strong emphasis and training in GUIDED IMAGERY and VISUALIZATION techniques. As a Certified Hypnotherapist, Erica shows you how to offer yourself and others benefits that go so much DEEPER than most yoga trainings.

DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LIFE COACHING PROGRAM?

Yes. While the 12-week life coaching program and the 9-day yoga training intensive can be taken in any order, the life coaching program is the very foundation upon which the Empath Yoga Training was built. It’s what puts the empath in Empath Yoga, and will inspire you to BE FREE TO BE YOU in all areas of your life.

What makes the Empath Yoga Teacher Training so exceptional and unique is the strong focus on personal development. And for those graduates who choose to teach, it allows them to take their new understanding of themselves, human dynamics and yoga, and become truly exceptional teachers in their communities.

DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LIFE COACHING PROGRAM?

Not at all. Anyone with a commitment to their own personal growth can register for the life coaching program.

However, the entire program is really a full lifestyle makeover. Because without a commitment to the breath and regular movement of the body, we run the risk of sliding back into old behavior patterns. The body is the subconscious mind, and when you do the deep inner work that we do in the life coaching program, and build upon that with a conscious lifestyle, you are really coming at things from all directions.

WHAT STYLE OF YOGA IS EMPATH YOGA?

Empath Yoga is primarily a Hatha-based style of yoga. But while some schools of yoga teach one specific style or approach to yoga, Empath Yoga takes an integrative approach, drawing from many different schools and many different styles, offering a fresh and creative approach which allows each and every yoga practice to be an intuitive work of art.

Empath Yoga is heart-opening, mind-expanding, and physically, mentally and emotionally empowering.

IS THE EMPATH YOGA TRAINING FOR ME?

It is for you if you’re ready to make yoga an ongoing part of your life. 

Grow your own intuitive practice.  Integrate yoga into your lifestyle.  Create a transformational healing experience for yourself and others through a deeply intentional, heart-opening practice.

The Empath Yoga Teacher Training is not just for those who want to teach yoga. It is for anyone who is ready to make a difference in this world.

UPON COMPLETION OF THE YOGA TRAINING, WILL I BE ELIGIBLE TO TEACH?

In addition to the Empath Yoga Teacher Training, participants who wish to teach are also expected to complete 10  practice classes, and a 40-day continuous, personal yoga practice.

IS PRIOR YOGA EXPERIENCE NECESSARY?

Empath Yoga is not power yoga, it is more of a moving meditation. And we’re really big on modifications to help customize the practice for each individual. So it really is appropriate for everybody and every body. 

That said, while we do start from the ground up — learning the fundamentals and basics of yoga and building upon that foundation to grow a truly dynamic, energizing, life-affirming practice — at least 6 months of yoga experience is recommended. You should be at a comfortable beginner level.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY AT A LIVE EMPATH YOGA TEACHER TRAINING LOOK LIKE?

A typical day at an Empath Yoga Training looks something like this:
8:00 – 9:30 a.m. Yoga & Guided Meditation
9:30 – 10:00 a.m. Light Breakfast
10:00 – 12:30 p.m. Morning Workshop

WHAT MATERIALS WILL I NEED FOR THE EMPATH YOGA TRAINING?

At an Empath Yoga Teacher Training,  the training manual is included in the cost of the training. In some cases, when specified, your lodging and meals may also be included. 

You will need your own yoga mat (I recommend a 1/4″ or thicker), 2 yoga blocks and a strap, and a small pillow or meditation cushion.

There are also some additional reference materials you will want to purchase, and if possible start reading through even prior to the training, such as the following books:

  • Wheels of Life; Anodea Judith

  • Your Life is Your Medicine; Kristen Schneider

Other suggested resources: 

  • Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

  • Teaching Yoga; Mark Stephens

  • Yoga Posture Adjustments And Assisting; Stephanie Pappas

WHAT IS THE COST FOR THE EMPATH YOGA TRAINING?

The total investment for the Empath Yoga Training is $2,697. A $500 deposit is all that is needed to hold your spot, and it is refundable up to 60 days prior to the training. The balance is due prior to the first day of the yoga teacher training.

This includes the 12-Weeks to LOVE YOUR LIFE Online Program, AND the 9-day intensive. Also includes the yoga teacher training manual, and lunch daily during the intensive.

WHAT ARE THE DATES OF THE 12-WEEK LIFE COACHING PROGRAM?

The next 12-Weeks to LOVE YOUR LIFE online program is scheduled to begin on October 9, 2018. And again on January 23, 2019. 

The live coaching calls usually take place on Wednesdays at 12 noon. These dates and times are subject to change.

The cost for the 12-week program is included in the cost of the yoga training. 

WILL I ALSO BE CERTIFIED AS A LIFE COACH UPON COMPLETION OF THIS TRAINING?

The 12-week program does not certify you in life coaching. However, upon completion of the 12-Weeks to LOVE YOUR LIFE program, you may apply for our 8-week Heart-Centered Life Coaching Certification Course. You don’t have to participate in the yoga training to participate in the life coaching certification.

If you are interested in knowing more about the life coaching certification course, email me for more details. 

IS THERE A PAYMENT PLAN OPTION?

Payment is due in full prior to the yoga training. However, for those seeking a payment plan, there is a 6-month installment plan available through PayPal. 

DO YOU OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS BASED ON FINANCIAL NEED?

In some circumstances, partial scholarships may be available. There are a limited number of these available. Requests for assistance are considered on a case-by-case basis. If you wish to be considered, please submit a letter for review outlining what type of financial assistance you need and why.
