Add-on Certification Option
After successfully completing their Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) training, our students receive a GSY Certificate Of Completion demonstrating their commitment to the art and science of Gentle Somatic Yoga®. Additionally, there is an opportunity to go the extra mile and become a Certified Practitioner of Gentle Somatic Yoga by purchasing this certification option and passing the certification’s Final Teachback requirement.* This requirement is fulfilled by submitting a Final Teachback video (full instructions HERE). The teachback video is evaluated by our Certification Staff, after which a detailed report card with personal feedback is returned to the student. Once certified, the student is acknowledged with a GSY Practitioner Certificate as having demonstrated their competence and skill for providing Gentle Somatic Yoga in an official capacity, either one-on-one or in a group setting, as part of their professional instruction service(s).
NO TIME CONSTRAINTS: When signing up to take this GSY Level 1 course, you do not have to decide immediately to purchase the certification option. Once you have completed the course you can choose this certification option at a later date. Also, there is no time limit to send in your final teachback.
WE PROMOTE YOU: Because GSY routinely receives requests from individuals seeking certified GSY Practitioners in their area, each certified GSY practitioner/teacher is honored with a dedicated page of their very own in the GSY Graduate Directory listed on our website. This is an important means of having referrals sent your way. The page includes the practitioner/teacher’s professional information as it relates to Gentle Somatic Yoga, including website, contact information, and bio.
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of the Advanced Study training for its certification level is first required. For example, you must have successfully completed GSY Practitioner Level 1 – Advanced Study in order to be eligible for GSY Practitioner Level 1 certification.
