Saturdays are days off. The training includes approximately 40 hours of online workshops in anatomy and yoga philosophy. You can complete these hours on your own schedule during the course. This is a sample schedule so the actual times may be slightly different.
Depending on your background, experiences and interests you may find one or several of these texts challenging. That's normal! Don't panic. Don't be afraid. Just try your best and spend some time with these books before the training. Try to understand the main concepts or at least familiarize yourself with the vocabulary of the human body and yoga philosophy. You can then read these books again after the training when they will be easier to understand!
You are not required to bring these books to the training, but it might be useful to have the Yoga Sutras and Yoga Beyond Belief on-hand for your referencing pleasure during the course. 🙂
If you cannot find these exact editions of the Yoga Sutras or the Bhagavad Gita, then feel free to grab different ones. These are Jess' favorite translations.

We will be on the mat up to 5 hours a day practicing asana. To prepare for this kind of physical activity I recommend increasing the frequency and duration of your yoga practice in the weeks leading up to the training.
Your body will acclimate after the first week or so, but just so your first week is more enjoyable, you might want to make sure you are practicing 4-6x a week for a minimum of 60 minutes and up to 3 hours if time allows on some days. This is more of an ideal goal, in an ideal world, so don’t worry if you cannot increase this much before the training begins. Again, your body will get used to it as we go, but it’s best to be as prepared as you can!
