FREQuently asked questions

Both. Predominantly, we’d love for you to attend in-person at Coastal Retreat, as a member of  your affiliate cohort.  You may also attend either in person at our Training Center in Hampton Bays, New York, or on Zoom at home. Every live session is recorded and streamed via Zoom so you can attend from anywhere in the world. Can’t make a session live? You can catch the replay.

This program is designed to be the ultimate in flexibility, connection – near and far – , and world-class access to instruction that is LIVE and SUPPORTED.

Get excited!  We will have a Coastal Retreat-cohort grounding weekend over September 20-22, 2024 in Easton!  Leslie will be joining us to set our intentions and a firm foundation for an AMAZING 9-months of learning, transformation and bonding.  

Additionally, we are planning to attend Module 6 in-person at Leslie’s studio in the Hamptons in March!  The trip is not a requirement of the training, but a fun perk to plan for if you are able to join!

This is a live, interactive, and intimate training. No watching a few videos and calling it a day. You get lifetime access to an Online Course Portal jam-packed with every nugget of wisdom Leslie has distilled from over 25+ years of mentoring yoga teachers PLUS, 250+ hours of live instruction which you can attend either in person or via Zoom.

We meet the first weekend of every month from October to June as follows:

Fridays from 5-8 pm EST

Saturdays and Sundays from 8-10:30 am EST & 12:30-6:00 pm EST Plus two other times each month for Q&A and Practice teaching with feedback.

Plus two other times each month for Q&A and Practice teaching with feedback.

We get it. Life is busy, things happen and not everyone can attend live. We’ve got you covered. Everything is recorded and you get the recording to keep forever. Plus, there are loads of opportunities to get feedback from Leslie and Kristi outside of the scheduled live sessions.

Sigh. we get it. Leslie’s  classes are interactive, fun, and full of life. In fact, you might even forget you are in your living room.  But you have lots of opportunity to be with your local affiliate community at Coastal Retreat, and interact with our larger cohort-community online and in-person whenever it’s convenient for you.  Our goal is to have you be an active member of our teacher training community!

Our time together is interactive because we learn by doing. Expect deep lively discussion, followed by time to integrate and practice what you are learning.

We cap enrollment because this is a high-touch training. We are with you every step of the way to answer all of your questions and offer personalized feedback and support. You will get so sick of us :). Plus, the last Training Module is a personalized month of mentoring!

The full training is $575 x 9 or $4200 (save $975). Individual blocks are $1500.

Totally fine. Choose which one interests you and join us that way. Each Training Block is bankable toward the 300-hour certification.

Yes. Good Ground Yoga is a 300-hour Yoga Alliance registered school. Upon completion of all Training Blocks, you will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level (if you have a 200-hr registration; 300 hr if not). Not taking all Training Blocks, individual Training Blocks will earn you 100 hours of Yoga Alliance-approved CET.

Get excited!  While you are welcome to join ANY of the training modules at the Good Ground Yoga training center in Hampton Bays with Leslie, our Coastal Retreat cohort will be planning a ROADTRIP to visit for the March 2025 – Module 6 – March 7-9 training. 

Details to follow on the particulars for Coastal Retreat participants (lodging, etc will be a separate cost; participation in the roadtrip is NOT required, just an opportunity to come together with Leslie and other class members for a GREAT, FUN weekend in the Hamptons!!). 

Absolutely not.  While a little background in yoga is certainly beneficial, being a yoga teacher is not a prerequisite.  A number of folks have taken online yoga teacher trainings over the course of the pandemic/post-pandemic timeframe and we see those as a great starting point to get some background before enrolling in a robust, in-person opportunity such as this one.   

Great teachers are created over time, like clay being sculpted by an artist.  It takes time to integrate deep knowledge, practice to learn your craft and support to give you the confidence and skills that you are an amazing teacher.  

Let’s take you to the next level so you can do what you came here for – to teach others, deepen your own practice and transformation AND spread the love and peace that IS yoga!
