Our application procedure offers the opportunity to get to know Bo's style of vinyasa and restorative yoga, meet our graduates, and be confident that you're taking a mindful and powerful step to benefit your personal practice and teaching. If you live in the New England area, we ask that you take a minimum of three therapeutic vinyasa or restorative classes with Bo. Then, you can schedule an informational interview with one of our teacher training graduates to learn about our program from the "inside out." When you've done so, please request an application from Amy at email@example.com. We look forward to meeting you.
Out-of-Town Track Application Process:
If you live outside the New England region, we have a special support system in place to enable you to get the most out of our teacher training. Please contact Amy, our Out-of-Town Track Ambassador, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you're in the Track. She'll stat the process of arranging a graduate interview via skype, and then you'll have a second skype interview with Bo. To ensure that the fit is mutual, we'll request two letters of recommendation, one from a yoga teacher and the second from the person of your choice. We'll also provide you with a list of recommended videos to review before applying, and have you fill out a special "Out-of-Town" version of our application. Once accepted, you'll be paired with both an Out-of-Town Graduate Mentor as well as a local Graduate Mentor. These mentors will help integrate you into our community and introduce you to Bo's unique method of yoga therapeutics. We look forward to meeting you.
