Q&A

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.

 

Does the E-PYFS $1500 training include specific sport training too?  

It is all about sport specific training learn 13 sports and then feel comfortable to create on your own.

 

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

 

I did find where the E-PYFS teachers are listed by name.  What is the annual fee to maintain this status?  

350.00 a year currently ONCE you graduate E-PYFS also get referred by me as many teams, athletes and trainers ask for references all over the world, to date I have trainees in 18 countries and 28 states working together to make themselves great

 

What is the difference between the $1500 and $850 training?   

850 is one course the basic pyfs training 

1500 (which the pricing is going up in 2019)is three courses

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 

 

Basic PYFS you are PYFS CERTIFIED! 

 

 

Do these both come with a certification?  

Yes just different levels

 

I see there is an E-PYFS with an annual membership fee?  What is that?

350.00 a year currently ONCE you graduate E-PYFS also get referred by me as many teams, athletes and trainers ask for references all over the world, to date I have trainees in 18 countries and 28 states working together to make themselves great

 

 

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 if I refer you and have you part of the team 

 

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 wchich training level you go for.

 

Not sure what you mean here: Also, how do you regulate where 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.

Does that answer your question?

 

I am interested in taking the certification program for the Power Yoga for Sports and would love to know more information as to how I can become certified. I have read your website but don’t see any information which states what qualifications a person requires

THERE IS TEXT THAT SAYS YOU NEED TO BE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:

200 YOGA TEACHER

PE TEACHER

CERTIFIED COACH

TRAINER OR IN SIMILAR BUSINESS

 

If I take the course online, with I still receive an official certificate? 

Yes!

 

And is there a starting date? Or will this training process be more on my own time?

Your own time

 

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

PYFS II is less

 

Will there be one-on-one opportunities with you? (Skype, phone calls, etc.) 

My trainees have discounted Skype sessions with me elite track there are cheaper and in some cases free opportunities to FaceTime, I encourage it to have one on one conversation as far as questions you may have and organizing your ideas.
