AYP Yoga Teacher Training Course: FAQ’s


Yes, upon successful completion of the course, you will become qualified as a yoga teacher. AYP (Advanced Yoga Practices) is registered as a Teacher Training School with the Yoga Alliance (YA). This means that the training we provide to teachers, meets their  standards of training provision. Once qualified you will be eligible to register as a yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance. You will qualify to register as an RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher who has completed 200 hours of training).

The Yoga Alliance is an internationally recognised registration body, so the qualification will allow you to teach in any country in the world.  

    Many Yoga Teacher Training Courses only train teachers to teach asana (posture) practice, which is just one of the eight limbs of yoga. On this course, as well as learning how to teach asana practice, teachers will be trained to teach Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Deep Meditation, Samyama practice and mudras and bandhas. The course will cover the teaching of all eight limbs of yoga and will be full-scope.

    Assessment is carried out both through practical assignments during the course and also through a written exam at the end of the course. The written examination will not cover the full course curriculum, but will only cover the material that students need to know to effectively teach asana practice, meditation and pranayama.

    Karma yoga means “selfless action”, or more literally “union through action”. On the Teacher Training Course it will be a 45 minute period that we spend each day serving the other people on the course. This could  include things like vegetable chopping, kitchen clean up, helping in the gardens or sweeping the meditation hall. Everyone will rotate jobs each week. There will be two karma yoga periods each day, one after each meal, and each person will do only one of the two periods.

    Yes. You can either pay the full amount upon booking, or pay a deposit of £300 to secure your place and pay the remainder within three months of the course starting. Once your application is approved, you can pay be credit or debit card through WorldPay, which is our secure payment processor.
