How the training works

Online sessions will be held over Zoom and Thinkific. This virtual teacher training is across nine weekends spread out across 11 weeks so there are built-in free weekends for breaks and catching up. The breaks are on October 2nd to 3rd and October 30th - 31st. Live weekend sessions start at 8:30 a.m. CST and run until about 5 p.m. There are big breaks throughout and a 30-minute break for lunch. Each day will include a lecture period, application, discussion, and end with a yoga practice that applies to that day’s topic.

The final weekend is required for all students to attend live as it is the weekend final presentations are presented. This course is offered 100% virtually with live online weekends and replays included supporting the busy and global community of students. Simply log into your LISPY School account to join The LISPY School virtually or to access the course materials.

If you live in the Dallas area, you’re welcome to join the classes in person for the weekends at their LISPY school. You don’t need to attend all weekends but The LISPY School encourages you to attend all weekends live in order to interact with faculty, fellow students, participate in discussions, ask questions, and be fully interactive with the course. They also know you’re busy and replays of every weekend will be available, too. All course assignments must be complete by the final weekend to qualify for the certifications.
