How long can I access the recordings?

You will get lifetime access to the Summit Recordings (take your time, there’s no rush).

How techy do I need to be?

You need a device and basic computer skills to watch the Summit Recordings.

If you can use email and Facebook, it’s likely you have enough computer skills.

We have designed our online shala to be super-intuitive and easy to use (not to mention beautiful).

We’re also backed up with an amazing IT support team, so if you have any issues, we’ll have you covered.

Our students who identify as not very techy, have told us they find our programs very intuitive and easy to navigate.

Is this accredited?

No, you are purchasing access to pre-recorded interviews, not a full training, and therefore you will not receive a certificate of completion.

You will, however, receive a receipt by email when you purchase access to the Summit Recordings. Some professional memberships/boards will accept this as sufficient evidence of attendance, and therefore once you have watched the interviews, you may be able to claim this as Continuing Professional Development points.

We do provide certificates of completion for our training programs, and many are accredited with Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia.  We invite you to join us for one of them.

Do I need to attend at a specific time?

All the Summit interviews are pre-recorded, so you can access the recordings whenever you like (there are no specific times you need to attend).
