Can you provide me with proof of tuition payment for my own business or tax purposes?

Is there help in finding your voice and own personal style?
Yes! This course is tailored to help teachers discover their unique voices to create classes that resonate with students. All students in training will be encouraged to choose elements and themes that they find inspiring to create class sequences. The purpose is to find what lights you up and bring it into your class to offer to your students.
Is the Art of Sequencing Training recognized by Yoga Alliance, even if it’s online?
YES! On September 25, 2020, Yoga Alliance confirmed it is now approving all online registrations until the end of 2021. This means that if if you register for the July 2021 Art of Sequencing Training, you will receive Yoga Alliance Approved Certification for the 20 CE credits.
Yoga Alliance understands that with the changing landscape due to COVID< in-person events are no longer possible. Institutions and schools worldwide are petitioning Yoga Alliance to change their mandates to approve online programming to make courses accessible to students worldwide.
Is this training just for teachers?
Not in the least! Anyone interested in deepening their practice, understanding, and application of vinyasa yoga is welcome to take the 4-day weekend training. This course is meant for those who want to dive deep into Prana Flow Wave Theory by Shiva Rea and weave unique themes and elements into their classes. Students who do not teach will have the opportunity to learn about yoga asana and the subtle body and spend four days developing their practice with peak postures and vinyasa flows.
Is this training open to beginners?
Absolutely. There’s no better way to learn about the practice than to dive in and experience it first-hand. This training is open to yogis of all levels. You do not need to have a previous practice or understanding of vinyasa yoga before this training to dive in!
If I am pregnant, can I take this program?
Yes. I’ve taught many classes, workshops, retreats, and training with pregnant yogis present. The biggest thing is to listen to your body, rest when necessary, and modify the poses as you need. I have a video, Modifications for Pregnancy, on Practice with Clara as a resource.
If I’m a teacher, what style of yoga will I be certified under?
You will receive a certification in vinyasa yoga, specifically Wave Theory, from Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow Yoga.
Will I receive a yoga teacher training certificate after completing this training?
All those who complete this course will receive a certificate in advanced vinyasa sequencing.
Will my teaching certificate be recognized globally?

Are there any live sessions in the program?
Yes, the lecture, breakout rooms, and Q&A are all live and hosted via Zoom. The 2-hour vinyasa classes are on-demand and will be hosted on my site Practice with Clara for you to get a feel for how to create on-demand content. I will go over how to host live and on-demand classes during the training.
Do I require an internet connection while taking the program, or can I view lectures offline?
Yes, you will require a reliable internet connection as the entire program is web-based. You will also need the most up-to-date version of the Google Chrome browser. Our programming is most compatible with this browser.
If the 2-hour vinyasa classes are on-demand, what opportunities are there for faculty support and interaction with other students?
For each of the four days of this training, students are provided with four 2-hour vinyasa yoga classes created by Clara Roberts-Oss.
The classes are hosted on Practice with Clara, and all participants receive a 3-month membership with the training.
These classes are exclusive to the training members and will be labeled by date as the lecture in the afternoon will be on the specified 2-hour class of that day.
The day’s lecture, breakout rooms, and Q&A will all be themed for the day’s on-demand yoga class, so students are encouraged to have taken the class before the lecture to get the most out of the experiences.
- The program has a LIVE Q&A with Clara where students engage with one another and faculty throughout the program.
- We also have a private FB Group for students and faculty to engage and ask questions before, during, and after the training experience.
Will I be able to teach Prana Flow Yoga upon completion of this program?
Yes, by the end of this 4-day training, you will have a deeper awareness and understanding of Prana Flow Wave Theory and create unique yoga classes around a mood and theme.
Does my access to the digital course materials expire?
We provide all participants with a 3-month membership to Practice with Clara to access the classes and materials discussed during the training.
I notice that some other programs offer Lifetime Access. Why do you not provide this?
The truth is quite simple. For us to offer Lifetime Access, we would have to increase the price point on our training.
All students will always have access to our private FB Group to engage with staff and fellow yogis.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, we offer payment plans. We understand that times may be challenging and financial resources can be limited.
What are the course materials included in my fees?

- Art of Sequencing Training Manuel
Access to 4-days of video lectures, breakout rooms, and Q&A’s with Clara, staff, and students.
- 8-hours of exclusive vinyasa yoga classes created solely for this experience.
Are there any hidden fees for the program?
