Make Up Policy

We understand that personal conflicts may arise during the course of our training. We ask you to do your best to attend the training in its entirety. When that isn't possible, please notify us in advance when you have to miss a portion. We do our best to record the lectures and practices and make them available for everyone. Our make-up policy ensures that each student will have the opportunity to fully receive and integrate the material for their own personal growth as a teacher while meeting the certification requirements.

Trainees are permitted to miss one full day (6.5 hours) of training without being required to turn in any makeup work. Though, even if you just missed one day you are encouraged to refer to the makeup guideline below to access the guidelines and material you missed to be fully informed. 

For subsequent missed training days you are required to submit the make up work using the guideline below.  Make sure to also complete the module homework as well as your "make up" work. Your submitted make up work and module homework will need to be reviewed by your mentor and can be done so by scheduling a Mentoring Session through Amala at the rate listed below.  This is to ensure your full understanding of the material and gives you an opportunity to address questions one-on-one.

Training Day Make Up Mentoring Session - $100 per hour
A one-on-one session with an Amala Mentor to review your make-up work, cover any questions and discuss the missed lectures. During this time you will also lead the mentor in a short sequence based on the concepts of the work you missed. To schedule your session, email cassie@amalaprenatalyoga.com
