What’s the difference between paying Tuition and a Monthly Fee?
First of all, let us be clear that there is no formal registration required for WYC’s regular opens sessions. You can attend at any point on a drop-in basis, and your first payment, no matter what the amount, enrolls you for at least a month. It’s your tuition. We don’t believe there are any individual class payments at WYC, and what you pay is up to you. But anyone can drop-in to any class. If you want to give us $10 for the class great.
If you’re not sure if you’ll be paying monthly on a regular basis, take that into account with your first payment. Pay what you think is right for the first session. That will establish your first monthly enrollment, but you can add to the payment at any time, and in any case, you can now attend all WYC sessions. Western Yoga College does not turn students away for lack of funds. Some students pay very little. Some students pay as much as $150 on a monthly basis and we appreciate that because it supports WYC’s informal scholarship program. So feel free to add to your tuition at any time, and eventually your regular monthly payment should be what you can afford. But there’s also no pressure. Try out some of WYC’s open sessions, experience some teacher-level yoga, and see how it goes.
How Do I Register for the Teacher Training Program?
The first step in registering with WYC Teacher Training is to complete a telephone interview with Scott Miller, the program director. You can email us or call Scott directly at 951-522-6266 to get this process started.
How Much Does the Teacher Training Program Cost?
After completion of your course interview and a mutual decision to go forward, we can proceed to payment arrangements and options. The fee for the entire course is $1,500 if paid by the first day of the program, though we understand that it is not always possible for students to pay the total course fee in advance. We therefore provide additional options, such as splitting payments in halves, or arranging monthly payment schedules.
Please don’t hesitate to speak to us about monthly payments and other considerations. We are very flexible and want to help. And one of the best things about WYC is that we don’t ask people to pay two fees for classes and teacher training. If you are enrolled in teacher training, your tuition, whatever it is, includes all of our regular daily classes.
