OVERVIEW

The 200-Hour Forrest Yoga® Foundation Teacher Training (FYFTT) will take place at a residential retreat center called Sunburst Sanctuary in California (about 45 minutes west of Santa Barbara)! This is the FIRST modular 200-Hour FYFTT, designed especially for those who cannot take off for a full month. Imagine not having to worry about things like food, transportation, or accommodations so that you can focus on learning, relaxing in your free time, and connecting with your tribe.

The FYFTT is a 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Registered School. It is a comprehensive program for aspiring teachers, experienced teachers or yoga students who want to work deeper within themselves. This FYFTT comprises of two modules. Each of the two modules is 12 days (plus one check-in day prior). In between modules, you will complete required online training and assignments, including the functional anatomy course taught by Ellen Heed. The second module concludes with a Business Course.

FAQs

Where is Sunburst? How do I get there?

Sunburst is at 7200 S Highway 1, Lompoc, California. It’s about a 45-minute drive west of the Santa Barbara airport. You could fly into Los Angeles, a bit farther away, from Sunburst. You are responsible for arranging your own transportation to Sunburst. Around February 2018, we will invite you to join a private Facebook group to help you arrange ride shares if you’re interested.

Where will I be sleeping? What are accommodations like?

You have 2 options from which to choose: Shared Cabin or Part-Time Camping.

Shared Cabin: 3 people per cabin, 1 bed per person.

Part-Time Camping: Bring your own tent. Camping is only allowed in the 2nd module, not the 1st module. In the 1st module, you stay in a shared cabin. In the 2nd module, you live in your tent every night for all 12 nights. This is the most affordable option and great for those of you who enjoy camping. Camping Part-Time tuition covers your shared room in a cabin in the 1st module and camping in the 2nd module.

Shared bathrooms and showers for everyone.

Is there on-site laundry?

There are two washers and two dryers available for your use during designated times. Be prepared to donate $1 per wash and $1 per dry. Sunburst will provide detergent. Bring yoga  clothes that can be dried in the machine. There isn’t space on the property for everyone to hang-dry their clothes. You will be wearing about 2 different yoga outfits per day. We recommend that you bring at least 10 different yoga outfits.

When should I arrive and leave? What’s the training schedule?

Module 1 is April 19-May 1, 2018.

Module 2 is August 16-28, 2018

I have to arrive late / leave early / miss part of the training.

In order to receive your Forrest Yoga Teaching Certification, you must attend 100% of the entire training and not miss any part of the training. Make your travel and flight plans accordingly. You will not be excused to leave the training early to catch your flight. See the previous question to see what time the training ends.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner on 2nd through 12th days
Breakfast and Lunch on 13th day

Maybe! Contact Sunburst to arrange for staying an extra night (not included in your tuition).

Will I be Certified to teach Forrest Yoga?

Upon successful completion of both in-person modules, assignments between the 2 in-person modules, and the Anatomy Course and upon evaluation of your participation, you will be a Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher as of August 28, 2017 at 5:31pm! Successful completion will also qualify you for registration as a Yoga Alliance 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200).

Can you clarify the different specials and tuition rates?

We are offering you two different 30-Day Limited Specials that expire on July 30, 2017.

The 1st Special, the SUPER Early Bird rate, is the lowest tuition rate possible. The tuition price is $600 lower than the Regular rate and $100 lower than the Early Bird rate! Expires July 30, 2017.

The 2nd Special, the Early Bird Lock-In, is good for those who want the Early Bird rate but can’t pay it in full now. To qualify for the Early Bird, pay a non-refundable $300 deposit by July 30th. The benefit of taking advantage of this special is that you reserve your spot AND get more time than the standard Early Bird due date to pay off your balance. Your due date to pay off the balance is one month prior to the training (as opposed to two months prior) or when the training sells out, whichever comes first.

Tuition Summary:
Camping Part-Time: Early Bird $5400 / Regular $5900
Shared Cabin: Early Bird $5640 / Regular $6140

Early Bird expires February 19, 2017. However, if you participate in the 2nd Special (Early Bird Lock-In with $300 deposit), then the Early Bird expires March 19, 2017 or when the training sells out, which ever comes first.

What does tuition cover?

Residential tuition covers BOTH modules, all manuals from both modules, all morning ceremony and intensives, all afternoon training sessions, lodging, amenities, all meals.
It doesn’t cover travel costs, laundry, Anatomy Course, an extra night’s stay on the last day of the training (i.e., the night of May 1st and August 28th). The estimated cost for the Anatomy Course is $375. You can choose to take the Anatomy Course online or in-person.

Is there wifi and cell phone service?

There is cell phone service at Sunburst, but it can be spotty. AT&T works very well. Verizon works ok. Sunburst also has wireless Internet available in one designated outdoors area next to the office. There is no wireless Internet available anywhere else. You are welcome to bring your own personal hotspot device or commit to unplugging throughout the training.

Can I get a refund or a credit if I need to cancel?

The Forrest Yoga Organization’s policy is no refunds, no credits, no exceptions.

What is the application process?

Once you pay, you will receive an email containing a link to the application (check your spam folder). If you cannot fill out the application at that time, then bookmark the page for later. If you aren’t accepted into the training, then you will be refunded in full.

I have a roommate preference. Can I choose my roommates?

We understand that some of you have friends who are also taking the training and that you’d like to room with them. The answer is – most likely, yes. While we cannot guarantee it, you have a better chance of being able to room with each other, the sooner you register. When you fill out the registration form, answer the roommate preference question to inform us of your preference.

I have a question that I can’t find the answer to.
