Q: Is this certification part of Yoga Alliance?
A: Lara is an approved 500-hour instructor, but the LYT courses are not geared towards Yoga Alliance. Yoga Alliance has extremely minimal standards in anatomy, so in order to create the most comprehensive anatomy-based yoga teacher certification available, we have decided to create a new level of standards for yoga teachers. If a Yoga Alliance certification is important to you, Lara’s in-person LYT courses can be applied to Yoga Alliance certifications.
Lara’s LYT Level 1 in-person training gives you a 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. Her in-person Level 3 Master’s Program courses can be applied to continuing education and a 500-hour certification with Yoga Alliance. Up to 20 hours of online training can be applied to continuing education hours.
Yoga Alliance is a private, nonprofit entity that is optional for teachers to pay to join. Yoga Alliance is not sanctioned by any local, state, or federal government. Paying Yoga Alliance to be listed in their directory is not a requirement to get insurance or be legally protected while teaching yoga.
Q: I already did a Yoga Alliance training with Lara, what does that mean in terms of LYT Certification?
A: If you already completed a 200 hours YTT with Lara (not including YogaGirl trainings), you are eligible to receive the first LYT Level 1 online training at no cost so you are up to date on Lara’s latest methodology. We have your information on file and will reach out when that time comes in Spring 2019.
If you were already part of Lara’s 500-hour Yoga Alliance program, what used to be known as “modules” will fall under the Master’s Program. The Level 3 Master’s Program in-person trainings can go towards your 500-hour Yoga Alliance Certification and you will be able to cross-apply this towards a LYT Level 3 certification, contingent on your completion of the new LYT Level 1 training (online or in person), which you can purchase at a discounted rate.
Q: How do I get listed on the Teacher Directory as a LYT certified teacher?
A: You must complete LYT Level 1 in order to be listed on the website. This also applies to previously teachers for Yoga Alliance, because they must re-certify in the LYT methodology.
Q: If I do the LYT Level 1 training in person, do I receive the online training as well?
A: Yes, you will gain access to the latest training online, so you can refer back to it after your in-person training. This will not include the live interactive components with Lara, just recordings from the last time she ran it.
Q: What is Lara’s role in the YogaGirl teacher training? Is it a LYT certification course?
A: Lara is the anatomy expert for the YogaGirl teacher training program. It is not part of the LYT certification programs.
Q: Why is the Level 2 Advanced Degree only offered online?
A: This portion of the certification is only offered online in order to maximize the convenience and accessibility of the degree. The course is completely guided by Lara and provides fully comprehensive materials. You will be prepared to teach five new LYT classes after each of the three Level 2 sections.
Q: Are the online classes live or recorded? Will I have the option to complete them at my own pace?
A: Both Level 1 and Level 2 offer 5 hours of live courses each week. The rest of the content is recorded in advance. While students are encouraged to participate in the live courses, these sessions will be made available for replay and can be completed at your own pace. However, all material must be completed within the allotted time (10 weeks for Level 1 and 15 weeks for Level 2) in order to facilitate the evaluation process.
