How much yoga experience do I need to have?
We ask that you have at least 1 year of solid and consistent yoga practice.
Can I teach after completing this course?
This 100-hr Immersion is the first half of our 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified YTT and is ideal to deepen your yoga practice and dive into Blissology alignment principles. You can do the 100-hr Immersion and then complete the 2nd half at any other location/time that we offer it. In order to obtain your Yoga Alliance certification and teach you do need to complete the full 200 hours.
What if I have already taken a 200-hr YTT?
In this case, the 100-hr Immersion can count as Continuing Education credit as Eoin is a certified YACEP. If you intend to pursue the 500-hr Blissology Certification path, and you have taken your 200-hr YTT with a different school, the 100-Hr Immersion is required.
What can I do to prepare for the Immersion?Commit to a regular yoga practice. We encourage you to try out our Blissology practices available on our VIMEO On Demand Channel, as well as on Alo Moves in Eoin’s Quiet Mind bundle (hint: Alo Moves offers a free trial, then it’s 20 USD/month). Their monthly subscriptions give you access to many of Eoin’s other classes.
What is the schedule for the Online Immersion?
The course runs for exactly 12 weeks, which is exactly 10 x longer than our live 100 hr immersions. This offers us the ability to let you really immerse yourself in this content; while working at your own pace; coming together for the live interactive sessions and completing quizzes and class assignments as you progress. We will post up a daily schedule shortly. Stay tuned.
