Many teacher trainees review the program fresh off of the ""high"" of their group immersion experience. Unfortunately, this emotional experience prevents them from forming an intelligent assessment of the program (I know this since it happened to me). It has been one year since I finished (and taught for a year), and my assessment now is much different.
This program is very weak in anatomy. It is just barely covered, and if you teach you WILL encounter all types of injuries. You will not have the knowledge of the physical body that you need to properly address these students. You will have to get this on your own (that means more time and more $$).
Also, this program does not sufficiently prepare teachers to teach beginners. You will have to learn this as you go. As everyone knows, it is quite easy to teach to a room full of yoga teachers. A different story with absolute beginners. We never spent time on how to safely modify poses, or the Sequence, for beginners. And when I began to teach, beginners comprised 100 percent of my clientele.
Which leads to the next problem: no mentorship or support system after you leave. Inevitably, there will be the need for continued learning and guidance. You will not find it here.
And finally, I was seriously injured during my experience. My injuries happened toward the very end of the training, and it took me four months to recover. Trainees are pushed too hard physically. The Sequence is a very physically rigorous and demanding practice, and not right for everyone. This is not really taken into consideration as students are pushed to their physical limit, and often dangerously past it. When I voiced my concern about some issues, I was told that I was wrong. Foolishly, I listened and paid the price with an injury.
Consider a teacher training program that is more well-rounded, that offers continued guidance, and that is not so much like a one-size-fits-all yogic boot camp. I feel that people preparing to part with a few thousand dollars should know these things before going in.
