How does the course work?
All four modules are available at once, so you can study the materials at your own pace. Each module has three videos, a recorded discussion with Q&A, and suggested reading.
Is it still possible to ask questions?
Absolutely! The course site has online forums for questions and comments, where you can share ideas and links – or request more information on any topic.
How long will I have access to videos?
For three months. This provides an incentive to get to the end. You can also download audio recordings of all sessions, or upgrade to unlimited access at the checkout.
Do I need to read texts in advance?
Not necessarily. It's also fine to read along as you go. Course materials quote several translations of the Upaniṣads, as well as commentaries by scholars of Vedānta.
What level of knowledge is required?
The course is designed for yoga practitioners. It's accessible to anyone, while providing insightful details that will interest those who are more familiar with these texts.
Does the course include assignments?
Each module has an optional quiz to test your understanding. No one sees your results.
Do yoga teachers get accreditation?
Everyone who finishes the course will receive a certificate for 12 hours of study. Teachers registered with Yoga Alliance can log these as continuing education with a YACEP.
