TRAINING SCHEDULE

The Spring 2018 semester of SYATT is comprised of two main components:

The first component is a series of group training sessions that begin on February 24th and end on May 20th. During this time, we meet as a class every other weekend on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm. During each session, we will practice, study, and share with each other using a variety of cutting edge educational methodologies. Students who have religious obligations, pre-planned vacations, or other commitments during training hours can make up missed time in a variety of fun and unique ways.

The second component of the program begins following the group sessions and is comprised of a traditional one on one mentorship with Scholé Founder Micah Scholes. The specific assignments and work of the mentorship component vary on the specific needs, goals, and interests of each student. The specific schedule and emphasis of each mentorship is unique and will be designed in partnership with Micah based on your unique needs and goals.

DEEP PERSONAL PROGRESSION

You will experience dramatic personal growth as a result of attending this course, and will also gain the ability to lead effective and engaging yoga classes in a variety of styles and formats. Previous graduates also report experiencing incredible weight loss, large increases in strength, flexibility, and mental cognition, as well as dramatic positive shifts in their relationship with themselves and others.

A HIGH STANDARD FOR EXCELLENCE

Scholé Yoga Teacher Trainings are among the most academically comprehensive and robust yoga certification courses in the world. Our lead facilitator is Scholé Founder Micah Scholes, the most experienced yoga teacher trainer in the Utah (and one of the most experienced nationwide). Micah has personally facilitated twenty three yoga teacher trainings and has over eight thousand hours of teaching experience. The SYU faculty also includes Madison Kyle, Shannon McPhee, Amanda Crittenden, Vanessa Noble, and Jess Ekenstam, each of whom have studied and practiced yoga for many years and many thousands of hours. As a result, the rewards and esteem for completion of our program are highly desired and respected worldwide.

This high standard for excellence is present in every aspect of the course, beginning with the manual itself. The SYATT course manual is included in the cost of your tuition and features a wide variety of digital, highly interactive content built using proprietary Apple technology. All of the course textbooks are also digital, and your homework will be assigned and turned in using Apple's proprietary educational software. For these reasons, each student must have access to an Apple iPad or iPad Mini in order to complete the course. If you do not have a compatible device, a rental unit will be provided upon request.
