I'm a professional yoga teacher, yet I need a certificate. Can I get the paper without undergoing the certification course?

Certification is a process of observation, evaluation, assessment and understanding of a candidate's skills, experience, knowledge and motivation. Notwithstanding your professionalism, it is hard to tell if you meet all certification criteria or not.

Before giving a certificate out, we must get ensured that you clearly understand goals of yoga and how yoga practice correlates with its goals. You need to posses enough knowledge to convey the goals of yoga to your students. You must understand all the various methods, techniques, approaches to safe and effective practice. Not only you should be fit and skillful, you should be able to guide your students to level with you.

Our yoga teacher's certification program is designed with these goals in mind. It is not a training program on one hand. On the other hand though, a professional yoga teacher like yourself might even discover some new facets of the art and science of yoga.

Reviews by graduates

I was here in March 2016 and I'm so happy about my choice.

I was actually at another school before I met Stevie from Himalayan YA. He took time to answer all my questions and explained to me in depth about what HYA had to offer. I was looking for traditional yoga with Western teachings. Himalayan gave me just that, the best of both worlds which was really important to me as I was returning to the West to teach.

I had enjoyed yoga for many years but I had the knowledge lacking from my practice. I now can say that my eyes are more open to yoga than I ever imagined plus there are many bonuses to this course.

Many courses don't give much teaching time but HYA gives an extra 40 hours to concentrate on just that. Classes such as vocal training to lean how to fill the room with a calm but assertive voice which is forgotten about on other courses. I felt confident to lead a class because of this practice. I have met many other students who had completed their YTT who didn't have the confidence to teach months after graduating. I am truly grateful for this. Be warned this course is intensive but you have a good support system around you plus fun trips to help you relax and enjoy it for what it is :)

Loved the team and grateful for all that I have taken away with me :)
