Registered School & Continuing Education provider
Guaranteeing professional and internationally recognised teaching. We are Registered with Yoga Alliance International, which is one of the best registry boards in the world with the highest standards - making the schools accountable and able to assure quality of teaching and knowledge to be provided to you in your YTTC.
Yoga Alliance International has strict guidelines for what is deemed an appropriate curriculum, often unregistered programs have am unbalanced curriuclum which lacks important aspects such as Anatomy, practice teaching & philosophy. Part of this is the very fact that they don't believe in pre recoded courses which are currently plaguing the industry and pulling down the standards.
All of our accredited programs are Live streamed with a maximum of 20 hours allowed to be completed without your lead trainer providing face to face knowledge online or in person.
Industry Standards & our pledge
The truth is, the Yoga Industry has a lot it needs to improve on. There are countless unsafe teachers being certified to teach the public. The standard of all inclusive, safe and meaningful teaching needs to be lifted - but where do we start? Afterall, it is the Yoga schools which are providing the industry with what we see today.
Therefore, we feel very responsible in doing our part for the community. We are committed to raising the standards across the board.
What we can guarantee you
We can guarantee you programs that are well balanced, we don't just focus on spirituality or on the other hand hard core science, we encompass all aspects of Yoga, not just the 8 limbs but also movement as a therapy, biomechanics, neuroscience, biochemistry, the origin, the tradition and the western translation alongside plenty of teaching practice and teacher - student time.
