FAQs

From payment options to teaching possibilities, we've answered the most frequently asked questions about our yoga instructor courses.

What prior experience do I need to become a yoga teacher?

There are no formal prerequisites for our yoga teacher courses - your success will be determined by your passion for the practice and your commitment to the programme. Before attending the practical workshops, you will ideally have some experience of performing yoga techniques – if not you’ll have to ensure that you regularly attend classes or sessions during the home-study period. Throughout your course you will also need to undertake further practice as a student to further develop your knowledge and skills.

What can I expect to learn on my yoga course?

Our courses are designed to prepare you for a successful career as a yoga teacher. Broadly speaking, you'll learn about the history and philosophies of yoga; the principles behind practice; how to plan and programme a class or session; how to perform the postures (asanas); the best ways to teach/instruct yoga.

The specific course content will depend on the package that you select. For more information about the course content, please visit the individual course pages.

Once qualified, where can I find work as a yoga teacher?

There's a wide range of places where a yoga teacher can find work. A small selection of these include: private health clubs and gyms, yoga retreats and holiday parks, cruise ships, private yoga studios, local authority leisure centres, and working on a one-on-one basis with clients in their own homes or workplace. Yoga teachers can be self-employed and work on a freelance basis, or be employed – the opportunities are literally endless.

Is this an accredited yoga course?

Upon completion of this course you'll receive a qualification from YMCA Awards, the health and fitness industry's leading awarding body. The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) awards 20 CPD points for this course and those that qualify are automatically eligible for Level 3 status. It is also endorsed by CIMSPA.

What resources and support will you provide on my yoga course?

All of the resources and materials you'll need to complete the course are fully included and this will include training manuals, video lectures, yoga asana tutorials, e-learning and a range of practice assessments.

During the distance learning phase of the course you'll be supported by a team of highly experienced tutors who will guide you through the programme. The face-to-face course elements are taught by leading yoga experts who are also well qualified and experienced in this field.

What's the best way to pay for my yoga course?

There are a few options available to you, leaving you with the freedom to choose. If you decide to pay for your course in full, up front, then you'll be eligible for a 5% discount off the total price. There's also the option to pay in monthly instalments over the course of six months.

If you're booking a package then there is the option of an interest-free, 12-month payment plan.

    Had a great time learning and training with HFE. All learning materials are great with all the information you need. The app with the digital versions is even better if you get free time to read them at work.
