Fee: 850.00 (for 4 payment option of 245.00 each email Gwen@gwenlawrence.com)
1. As I have been reading through your websites, it looks like the specific sport training videos are sold separately.
not anymore they are all free on my app which is in transition and on my you tube channel, We have the Power Yoga for Spots Training kits available for purchase, as elite trainee you get discounts once you graduate.
2. I am currently working with some youth baseball and basketball players and am looking for some more specific training in regards to these sports.
They are included
3. What is the difference between the $1650 and $850 training?
850 is PYFS basic course
1650 is three courses and an excellent value + you are part of the PYFS team with all its benefits.
PYFS 1 PYFS 2 and the way of the mindful athlete curriculum course. Once you are done you are certified
E-PYFS, THIS LEVEL COMES WITH benefits you will see listed on the site
4. Do these both come with a certification?
Yes just different levels with different privileges
5. Are the online trainings all done independently with videos etc. or does Gwen do in person trainings?
The above trainings are all done on your own and you submit videos. Writings and observations at the end that I meticulously go over before giving certification. This way I am totally sure I feel comfortable I can give you a valid certification and you are ready to teach.
6. How long does the training typically take?
Since the online program is done at your own pace, it is difficult to nail down timing, as it is dependent on the lifestyle you have. Typically it has taken people 4 months to 12 months, also dependent on how quickly you read the required reading list, and which training level you go for.
7. How do you regulate when we complete our practice teaching.
If you are asking how I regulate how you pass/complete the course…there is a to do list to complete and final video to submit to me which I personally assess and go back and forth to you with questions until I feel comfortable that you are ready. Otherwise it is all done at your own ace so it can fit into your busy life and the life of people that have other jobs.
8. If I take the course online, with I still receive an official certificate?
9. Is there a starting date? Or will this training process be more on my own time?
Your own time
10. Approximately how many hours of training total? And how many hours do you recommend putting in each week?
It is really up to the time you have according to other work and commitments PYFS I is about 100 hours all together with all readings, and CEU's are recognized by yoga alliance as well as other fitness associations.
PYFS II is about the same, the mindful athlete course is about 10 hours.
11. Will there be one-on-one opportunities with you? (Skype, Zoom, phone calls, etc.)
My trainees have discounted sessions with me, elite track there are cheaper and in some cases free opportunities to Face Time, I encourage it to have one on one conversation as far as questions you may have and organizing your ideas. Elite trainees also get a free online assessment done by me which helps them learn a lot.
Testimonials from Gwen’s Students
Gwen is an awesome teacher and guide. Hands down she offers the most challenging and inspiring yoga practice. As an athlete, I was thrilled to find an approach that honored this drive, while at the same time opened up a whole new level of discovery of yoga. Gwen was THE inspiration for me to pursue certification. Gwen imparts an in-depth and practical understanding of the foundational elements of yoga and inspires you to explore your edge. Gwen is an anatomy junky and a strict observer of the principles of alignment. She offers a profound and deep review of these elements. I respect the critical importance these qualities of knowledge provide your of teaching. The opportunities for hands on assist and evaluation informed me immensely. As the training evolved, I gained the confidence to embrace my own skill and developed a keen desire to inspire others. “Trained by Gwen” holds marquee value and I do not take that for granted. Her standards and style are held in the highest regard, elevating my own value. I am incredibly grateful for Gwen’s friendship, continually guiding and informing my teaching. I am drawn to the community that gravitates to her teacher training, her classes, her commanding and fun personality and the continual learning opportunities. I feel incredibly blessed to have her guiding me on this crazy yogic journey I am on. – Shari Balaish
Gwen’s teacher training class took my 14 year old yoga practice and teaching to a much deeper, level. I went in thinking I was just going to learn more about some muscles and I came out of the training with not only a deeper knowledge base of the anatomy but much more that went way beyond my expectations. Gwen’s teacher training gave me the confidence to branch out of my comfort zone, I have since started my own yoga studio and loving it. Thank you Gwen, I am so grateful for having you in my life, and the ways in which your training transformed me! – Frannie Rochat
