Teacher training cost?

I hope I’m not just missing it, but is there a cost estimate for the upcoming teacher training? It sounds amazing but I don’t want to get my hopes up if it will break the budget. Thanks for all the amazing content you already put out!


Seconded - I’m curious too (and excited!).

Hello @daphnerweiss and @c.a.kenney78. Are you on our YTT Newsletter list? We sent out the dates and costs last week to all who have subscribed. If not, you can do so here:


Below I’ve included the information from the last newsletter. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Take care,


Prices for the Yoga Teacher Training have been announced!

You will always have the option to take the curriculum when you like and at your own pace, but we recommend joining a cohort since you can learn the material together, connect and share with other students and reach faculty with questions more quickly.

Thanks so much, David! Apparently I signed up for YTT updates with an email address other than the one I use to sign in to DYWM, and that email “hid” the YTT update! :frowning: All fixed now - I gave Gmail a good talking to, i.e. I told it to ALWAYS put emails from DYWM right in my primary inbox so I won’t miss a thing :slight_smile: I’m really excited. And a little nervous. What if I’m not “ready”? I would consider myself intermediate beginner…maybe advanced beginner? Maybe early intermediate… I’m worried the 7 day “level 3” will be too advanced for me. Is this training for everyone or should I wait until I’m more “advanced”? Sorry for all the questions, thanks for any answers.

My pleasure! We’ll have a link with the details ready very soon.

I am very interested in pursuing the teacher training course, thank you for all of the information that you sent out via your newsletter and in this post. I have just a few questions: if we complete level one, do we have to take level two right after the completion of level one? I’m trying to figure out costs and how much I can budget for one year. Do you think you might be offering level two again next fall? Will there be a possibility of a retreat not in the fall or winter? I’m a teacher and I am never able to take time off in the fall or winter. Could you explain more what a cohort is? Do we need to find somebody locally to participate in the course as well? Thanks for any clarification you can give me! I’m super excited about the possibility of this course, and hope it works out.

Hi there. Welcome to the forum!

You can do the training along with a cohort, on a specific schedule, or you can do them as you like, when you like. We will be offering Levels 1 and 2 in cycles, likely starting a cohort twice a year, depending on the demand. If we have enough people interested, we could run them three times a year. We will also be receiving feedback from people on the optimal dates and locations for the retreat, so anything is possible. I can’t give you a specific answer to that yet. The cohort is a group of students who have the opportunity to learn together as they go through a course. No, you don’t need to find anyone locally - the cohort would be the group who is interested in starting at the same time and they would likely be from around the world.

Let me know if you have any more questions!


Thanks, David! I appreciate the response. All sounds great, I am open to beginning level 1 and seeing where that takes me, I am hopeful I’ll be able to continue and at some point attend a retreat to finish my certification. I am a chemistry and physics teacher, but I would also love to teach yoga at my school to my students as an elective course. So we’ll see how it goes! Take care! Love DYWM!
