Frequently asked questions
How long will this course take me?
The Online SUP Yoga Teacher Training is modeled after our in-person training which is a 25 hour course. The length of time it takes each person to complete can vary depending on how much time you will need to devote to learning and practicing the required skills. For example, some may pickup the paddle skills quickly and not need as much time as others, who may need to spend more time on the water practicing.
What do I get after I am certified?
The SUP Yoga Center Teacher Training course is globally recognized and known in the SUP and SUP Yoga communities as the top and most comprehensible training in the industry.
When can I start?
The SUP Yoga Center Online Teacher Training is currently open for enrollment and you will be able to have immediate access upon registering!
What days/times do I need to be present for this training?
One of the best things about our Online Training is that you can work it completely around your schedule! This training is a combination of text and prerecorded video content that you can move through at any time that is best for you and at a pace that feels good! No need to take time off of your regular schedule, you can log-in anytime!
How long will I have access to the course?
You will have access to the Online Training for 6-months from the date of registration. We have found that this is way more than enough time for most of our students as it is only a 25 hour course. However, if you find that you would like access to the course for more time, you can extend in 2-month periods for $111. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Course Extension Request" in the subject line to request an extension.
Will I have a paper copy of my manual?
The Online Training does not come with a paper manual. If you would like to receive a copy to keep, they are available for purchase in our Online Store.
Do I need to have prior SUP experience?
You do not! In fact, we find that it is even better when clients come to us without prior SUP experience that may have developed "bad habits". Our students who have had years of SUP experience always say the same thing: "I did not even realize there was a correct way to paddle!" If you have had experience, we can work to perfect your paddle skills. But prior paddleboarding experience is not required or necessary. By the end of this course, you will be a pro with your SUP skills!
How does the Online Training work?
The Online Training has worked incredibly well for the several hundred instructors who have joined us and we are very happy with the incredible reviews and feedback we've received.
Once all assignments have been submitted, you will receive a private Zoom session with your instructor to go over your assignments and ask clarifying questions about anything you may need help or guidance with.
Will I have to take a test?
The Online Training does not have a big scary final exam. It does have short quizzes throughout the course that will ensure that you are learning and retaining the important information. These quizzes can be taken over if you have not received a passing grade but they will need to be passed for final certification.
The main "test" will be in your final assignments, to show that you can properly execute the required paddle and safety/rescue skills.
I can’t say enough great things about SUP Yoga Center! Jess has so much knowledge to share about SUP yoga, paddle boarding, & truly is passionate about what she does. Thank you Jess for an unforgettable training. I learned much more than I ever expected! I am now running a very successful floating yoga studio & continuing to share this practice on water.
This course is 5-Star!!!
If you are hesitating on whether an online paddleboard yoga course can work...stop hesitating and go ahead! Jess is so helpful and kind you will feel supported throughout if you need to reach out. The online resources are comprehensive, clear, and well set out. I learnt everything I needed to know and so much more and was given all the skills to feel ready to go out and set up & teach in real life. I cannot thank you enough Jess 🤗
This course has been a moral boost for me. I enjoyed every second of it and Jess is an amazing instructor that really motivates you to learn and improve your skills. Very satisfied and grateful! Thank you Jess 🙏
Jess is wonderful. The online training is laid out perfectly, easy to follow, with precise information to help get you on the water safely. Jess had wonderful feedback on my submitted videos which helped improved my skills. Highly recommended training. Thank you.
Absolutely brilliant! Thoroughly enjoyed every second of this course, have learnt so much and feel confident now as a paddler with your expert feedback and support. Thank you for putting this training together online.
Wow - I am so glad I did this training with Jess. Not only did I learn loads to help with my new paddleboarding skills, but I feel super confident in helping others feel safe and comfortable on a paddleboard now. Her years of experience teaching yoga on the board shines through, it makes the practice so much more accessible. I found her videos excellent and her feedback and communication invaluable. Very happy to have found this!
