Make-up work for any missed sessions is the responsibility of the student, and is not included in the fee for the Immersion. Our Immersion staff will gladly work individually with each student to ensure that all graduation requirements have been met.


  • Please have a committed practice in place, and familiarity with foundational vinyasa yoga poses and sequencing. A 200 Hour Instructor Immersion is not an advisable environment in which to acquire a brand new practice.
  • A basic understanding of anatomy is essential for anyone seeking to teach a physical modality. If you do not have prior experience with anatomy, completion of September's Anatomy and Physiology Primer will be required prior to the commencement of the Instructor Immersion program. The Anatomy and Physiology Primer is available to all Immersion participants for a 25% discount off of the regular Primer fee.

While we look forward to discovering the who's and why's that motivate your desire to teach yoga during the Immersion, please send us an Intentional Essay listing the following in your own words: 

  • How did you first find your way to your mat? What does your yoga practice mean to you?
  • How long have you been practicing and where?
  • What brought you to our Studio/Instructor Immersion and why? Are you looking to deepen your practice, or seeking to take your teacher's seat
  • What is your vision for your progress and evolution throughout the Immersion?
  • Any injuries, limitations or medical history that we should know in order to ensure that the Immersion process is a place of safety for you.
  • An idea of who you are outside of the Studio. Your life circumstances, passions, interests and anything else, of a more personal nature, which you wish to share to help us better understand the person you are as you embark upon your teaching path. 
Intentional essays should be e-mailed to HYPmanager@aol.comUpon receipt of your Intentional Essay and a payment option, we will notify you by e-mail of your acceptance into the Instructor Immersion program.
