How long do I have to complete the course?
This course is specially designed to support you through a transformative educational process - and it is one that can be engaged non-linearly. Each module will come out one week at a time for 6 weeks, starting April 3rd. You have flexibility for completing the course - and can do it on your own time, anywhere you’d like. Once you are in, you have lifetime access to this course and that includes any future course content updates! So you can start now, and continue to digest as you evolve and grow.
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, busy and nervous. Are you sure I can do this?
YES, you can do this! This course is scheduled to be released over 6 weeks and you have access to it for a lifetime! This course will begin April 3rd and you can engage with the content at any time.
Any growth worth really diving into will often bring up some nervousness. This nervousness is a great sign that you are ready to grow in a meaningful way.
It may get a little uncomfortable at times, but you will be supported by the meditations, journal prompts, Susanna’s live coaching support in our office hours, and the private community here to engage and uplift you.
If you are here, I know you are a seeker who wants to bring more equity, vitality and authenticity to your yoga practice. You really care about this stuff. And that is great, because I do too and we are in this together!
You've got this! Reclaiming, unpacking and honoring yoga is such a worthwhile adventure.
We have office hours scheduled for:
Friday April 5th at 12 NOON EST / 9AM PST
Thursday April 19th at 3PM EST / 12 NOON PST
Wednesday May 1st at 12 NOON EST / 9AM PST
I can't make all of the office hours, is that OK?
Of course. The live office hour calls are an opportunity for you to ask us questions, get personalized support, and deepen your understanding of the topics. However, they are not mandatory. You can submit a question ahead of time and even if you can’t attend live, they will be recorded and uploaded to the course platform for you to listen to at your convenience. There will be plenty of other opportunities on our program platform to ask questions and get support as well.
How many spaces are available?
Many! Since this is an online course that engages group learning there is space for all. And we all so need this.
What is the price of the course?
This course is normally $447 and just this week until Friday March 8, you can enroll for the early-bird rate $297!
Is this course open year round?
No. To maximize learning, we've found a mixture of video modules, reflective assignments, meditations and group discussion is best for integration. So, this course opens once a year in the Spring and runs for 6 weeks. Of course, once you are enrolled, you have access to the materials and can go at your own pace, revisit the meditations and modules and re-engage with the community all through the year!
Enrollment for this round of Integrating Equity closes March 27, 2019 at midnight. If you don't join this year you can join us again a year from now in 2020!
I’ve taken other online courses and not done the work. How is this one different?
This course is specifically designed to be accessible, thought-provoking, and challenging in all the right ways as well as enjoyable. Each of the short and informational video modules will help you deepen your connection to yoga while learning how to properly honor and embody equity. Our guidance and your care for the topic will bring you back.
We’ve also got some gamification - that means some fun and great incentives inside the course to keep you motivated and on track as you are learning!
I really want to participate but I don't believe I can afford it. Are there any alternatives or options?
If your heart is singing YES but you don’t believe you can afford it we want to make it accessible. Know that this course is already configured to give you maximum value. We’ve lowered the price below value to create greater access.
