    Hi!!! My husband and I are thinking of trying to try for a baby in the next month or so…..not sure what will happen and when but just out of curiosity if I happened to be pregnant….would I still be able to be a part of the yoga teacher training?? We are moving and I will be in between jobs so it would be a perfect time for me to be able to do this training.

    • rachel says:

      Hi Abbie! Congratulations on the journey into parenthood that you and your husband are embarking into 🙂 If you can email experience@islandyoga.com, our team will get back to you right away to address your question and any others you have.

    Hi Rachel I couldn’t be more excited for this! I was wondering what kind of yoga it will be focused on such as hatha, vinyasa, etc? Any other aspects such as meditation, heart opening journaling, etc? I am just so excited.

  6. Lisa Woodard says:

    So excited!!!!! Can’t wait to sign up!

  7. Jenny says:

    Hey guy’s,

    I am Jenny from Munich and I am thinking to come over with my sweet family in January or February 2018. I would love to know if there is a teacher training to become a certified yoga teacher in these months. Unfortunately I didn’t see how much a 200 teacher training would cost and if I could take part even if I have no other educations on this way. Thank you for replying and I wish you a wonderful week! Over and out Jenny

    • rachel says:

      Hi Jenny,

      Thank you for these questions! We’d love you to join a teacher training. If you could please email us directly at experience@islandyoga.com, our team will quickly answer all your questions and more 🙂

    Hello Rachel, I have been recently following you on instagram, however you have become a huge inspiration to me. I have been interested in the yoga teacher training for a while now. I would really love to take your classes and finally meet you. However i was wondering about the cost of the course and if there are any sleep accommodation included in that course, as i would be coming from Switzerland.
    Thank you for your beautiful energy! And welcome and bless baby Lea Luna.
    Best regards

  9. Emily says:

    Hello Rachel!

    Hi Rachel!

    Ever since you announced a date for the announcement of YTT earlier this week on IG, I have been SO excited to know more about it! However, seeing as it is in October, I won’t be able to make it. I was wondering if you were planning on having more YTTs early next year (between January and May)?

    Thanks for all the info!

    Hello Rachel,

    I’m relatively new to yoga but am absolutely in love with it and can’t get teacher training out of my head. Is the course suitable for someone relatively new to the practice?

    Thank you,

    Would love to come for the teacher training!! New to yoga, but really enjoy it so much!

    Just need dates and $.


  15. Maja says:

    Hi Team 🙂

    When will this TT be open for booking? I’m a yoga teacher from Oslo Norway, and even though I’ve had some teacher training experiences already I would love to join this 200ytt, as Rachel was the inspirational-kick-in-the-butt for me back then. She gave me what I needed to finally follow my heart and begin teaching yoga, so it would mean so much to me to join her for this.

    Thank you for your time <3

  16. Ellie says:

    With three small children, traveling just isn’t possible during this season of my life… but one day I WILL attend a retreat!
    I know you always have a lot on your plate Rachel, but please consider programming for online trainings! For those of us who can’t travel, please put together online continuing education. I would love your trainings in yoga and mindfulness… so I’m putting it out there! =)

  25. Lola says:

    Hi !

    Are the applications treated on a first come first served basis ? I have applied when you first released the information via the newsletter one day prior to the rest of the world ?

    Thank you 🙂

  26. Fanny says:

    Hej Rachel.

  27. Alyssa says:

    Hi 🙂 I am SO excited for this! I’ve been looking into getting my yoga teaching certification for a while now and I am a HUGE fan! However, I am a new-ish Mom of 2 girls (age 3 and 1-1/2) and I was hoping I could find a teacher training where I could bring my family to stay. I would do the training and my husband would look after the girls type thing. I’m of course willing to pay extra as I know I will need to but just wondering if this is possible!?! 🙏🏼 And if not this time around, maybe next year? I will wait if so!! Xoxo

    • rachel says:

      Hi Alyssa!

      We’re thrilled to hear of your interest in joining Rachel’s teacher training. Let’s chat about the possibilities around bringing your family along! Please email experience@islandyoga.com with your questions and to receive quick replies 🙂
