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 in three ways. The first is through course participation (full attendance is necessary). Secondly there is a practical teaching assessment towards the end of the course. Lastly there is 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 yoga.


    Yes, all of the training is completed during the 29 day course, with students graduating at the end of the course. There is a recommended reading list, so students can begin their study before the course starts if they wish.
