How do the Makeup Weekends work?

Sun Moon’s Excellence in Teaching Yoga course is designed for YOUR success. The aim is high quality training, for a broad range of people, accommodating to real life. Everyone has events that may cause them to miss training hours. Our program has multiple Makeup Weekend opportunities pre-set for participant’s planning.

  1. Makeup Weekends may be substituted to cover contact hours you have missed; or will/may be missed in the training.
  2. Makeup Weekends are one-night only and require additional homework to complete YA hours.
  3. Participants using Makeup Weekends to cover absences from group training are responsible for documentation, using the Petition for Substitution form (PDF).
