Here are some general questions and answers, simply click on the question below to read the answer. If you have other questions or comments please contact us, we’d love to hear from you!
How many hours can I miss and still complete the program?
You may miss only 24 hours of class time but those hours must be made up with approved workshops or projects.
How long can I take to complete all three modules?
You will have up to three years to complete the necessary course-work in order to be certified. Your discount on yoga classes is only good for up to one year, however.
Do I have to do the two modules in order?
No. You are allowed to take electives before completing module one.
Will you honor my basic certification from another school?
Yes. Member of the Yoga Alliance in good standing are honored.
Can I take my electives at another studio?
Unfortunately no. The Yoga Alliance requires you to do all three hundred hours of advanced study with one school, so you will need to complete all three modules with Yoga Tree in order to become certified.
I live outside of San Francisco, how can I do my mentoring?
Every year, hundreds of people apply to study at Yoga Tree from all over the world. We recognize that doing a mentoring program from a distance is very time-consuming, so we have come up with some alternatives to allow yogis in far off lands to mentor with our senior teacher. Because each situation is unique, we try to tailor the experience to fit the needs of the student and their mentor, but generally speaking we harness the power of the internet to allow you to have face-to-face time with your mentor.
I am not a resident of the United States. Can you help me get a Visa?
A visa is required for most citizens of countries other than the United States. Because the US State Department has different agreements with each individual country, you will need to research this for yourself. We are happy to write a letter on your behalf stating that you will be studying with us upon request, but we cannot guarantee a visa will be issued.
I live outside the Bay Area, can you help me find accommodations?
If you are coming from outside of San Francisco, please arrange your accommodations well in advance. Conventions and other special events can book most of the city’s hotel rooms leaving few options for individual travelers. Each person has different expectations and budgets for a place to stay. We ask that you check the following links for places to stay:
