The practice of yoga has a history that dates back over 5,000 years. Today, this holistic form of exercise is used to create a stronger mind, body and spirit connection, develop flexibility, posture and relaxation. Increasingly, yoga is also used by athletes and sportspeople to increase their performance and reduce the risk of injury. There really are few limits to how this practice can be used in the modern world.

Our Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Yoga is a total immersion course that goes above and beyond the standard course content. Delivered with a highly practical approach, this is a course specifically designed for people who want to turn their passion for yoga in to a viable and rewarding career.

Discover the real qualities needed to be a successful yoga teacher and the many career paths this qualification opens up with our detailed ‘Become a Yoga Teacher’ guide.

The final assessments for the Level 3 Yoga Teacher Training course include:

Your level of success from this course will be determined by your passion for subject, the amount of work you put in and your prior experience of practising yoga. There are no formal requirements and it is still possible to complete the course with little or no experience of yoga. However, the course is aimed at students with a basic level of experience so it may be necessary to increase the distance learning period significantly to accommodate your lack of experience.

During this time you will need to undertake a great deal of yoga practice as a student. This will help you develop an understanding of how it is performed and the spirit in which it is practised and delivered.

There are no formal prerequisites for Level 3 Yoga; therefore you don’t need to hold any lower level qualifications to enrol.

    Prompt service from the off. Online home computer package good and easy to navigate. The tutor always there at the end of the phone to assist you when you need him, but does not hassle you! Love the fact thats its half online and half classroom based. Means your're not giving up consecutive weekends in a row to complete the course.
