TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATION FAQ
DO I RECEIVE A CERTIFICATION?
On successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a certificate which will allow you to then register with the International Yoga Alliance.
This Yoga Alliance registered teacher training programme will equip you with the necessary skills to teach yoga to classes or individuals. More than that, it will provide you with a comprehensive yoga education and you may undertake the training to deepen your understanding and practice of yoga rather than as a career move.

We guarantee that after completing the course, the way you practice and view yoga – and probably yourself – will never be the same again.

DO I NEED TO PREPARE PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF TTC?
A 3 month intensive training course implies that the physical practices will be fairly rigorous. We acknowledge that the actual ability to perform advanced yoga asana is not always a measure of progress or experience in yoga, but we do look for participants that have applied dedication or “Tapas” in their yoga practice.
So, an established dedication is therefore an important measure of ones readiness to participate in the
course. An established personal self-practice is also a foundation for your role as a teacher and to explore yoga more deeply.
It is recommended that you prepare for the course by establishing a regular practice of at least 1.15 hours, four to five times per week. Please check do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions regarding this. Participants are not expected to be proficient in all asana, but are expected to demonstrate a commitment to be present and participate to the best of their ability in all classes, with the necessary self-discipline that that implies.
We have compiled a list of reading that is required as part of the certification on this course. Prior to your arrival you are expected to submit a written book report of 500 words on one of the books in the required reading list describing something that you have learned from the book. The purpose of this exercise is to see that you have read the book and reflected on it. This assignment is due at the start of the course.
The books on the reading list establish some basic concepts that will help in the deeper exploration of yoga during the course. We will refer to some of them in discussions. There will be little time for reading during the course, so we would advise you to try to complete some of the reading in advance.
Required reading list:
Light on Yoga – BKS Iyengar
