How Do I Complete A Lesson and Move To The Next?
How Do Webinars Work?
What Is Pod Work?
We believe that modern contemplative practices such as yoga and mindfulness are tools for engagement and transformation on personal, relational, and collective levels. For this to be so, we must practice not simply in relationship to self, but in relationship with others. We believe that Pod work is essential to your experience and to achieving the vision of this course.
What Are the Requirements for the YMNB 100-Hour Certificate of Completion?
The 100 hour Certificate of Completion is for those who take both a 3 day, in-person immersion and the online course.
- The online course must be purchased within 7 days after the conclusion of the in-person immersion. Alternatively, if the online course (YMNB) is purchased before the in-person immersion, it can be purchased only 30 days prior to the immersion (with some exceptions).
Completion of each lesson, full participation in each course component, and a passing grade of 85% or higher on the final test is required to qualify for the certificate of completion.
CE credits available:
- 18 contact hours for in-person immersion (6 hours/day x 3 days)
- 56 non-contact hours for the online coursework
- 26 non- contact hours for participation in webinars and pod work
Please inform our staff with whom you plan to apply for CEs as there are different requirements for different regulatory bodies.
*Please note: CE requirements are ultimately determined by the regulatory body (Yoga Alliance, APA, IAYt, etc) and these determinations change frequently. To be as accurate as possible, we ask that you double-check with the regulatory body with whom you are engaged to determine final eligibility of hours. We recommend that you keep written communications archived for easy access.
