Dear Evi & Brian

Thank you so much for this experience diving deep into therapeutic aspects of yoga. It has always been a dream for me to become a Yoga Therapist, and through this residential you have given me so much inspiration and belief that my dream can become a reality.

Still have questions?
We have the answers!

Do I have to commit to Year 2 when I first enroll?

When you enrol you are only committing to Year 1 so you can decide as the course progresses if you would like to continue to complete the 805 hours training or just complete the 350 hours of Year 1. We recommend you take advantage of the early bird prices by giving a deposit for the second year by January 2025.

Do I need to be a Yoga Teacher to attend the course?

Yes. You will need to have completed the 200 hours of a Yoga Teacher Training programme and have one year’s experience. If you are unsure please get in touch.

When will I graduate and receive my certificates?

Following completion of the First year 15 days of training, (in summer 2024) it takes about 12 months to complete the webinars, assignments, case studies and rest of practicum. So, you will graduate in summer 2025 for the 350 hours yoga therapy training. For the Yoga Therapy Training 805 hours you will graduate in September 2026. Graduation being dependant on completion to a pass standard the required coursework. Students must have also completed the required number of attendance hours.

What if I am unable to attend some of the webinars or online weekends?

Up to 30 hours can be missed from the Synchronous Distance Learning, although students must view the recording and complete the assessment for each topic missed.

Can you clarify the Accreditation of the Yoga Therapy Training & IAYT application?
  • ~ By concluding the 1st year training, you will take the Advanced Teacher Training Certificate for Yoga Alliance titled ‘Adapting Yoga for Everyone’ which you can then add to your 200 hour certificate to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500-hour Yoga Teacher – RYT-500.
  • The certification of the 350 hours Yoga Therapy Training issued is not accredited by any association or board. The 350 hours Yoga Therapy Greece Training forms part of the Yoga Therapy Training 805 hours.
  • The 805 hours training is accredited by IAYT. (https://www.iayt.org/). Once you have completed the 805 hours accredited training you are then eligible to apply to IAYT to take their multiple choice exam (for which you will be fully prepared) and achieve full C-IAYT.
Why can’t the 350 hours training be accredited by IAYT?

IAYT has extremely high standards and accredits only a minimum 805 hours training.

What if I decide not to complete the assignments, case studies and webinars?

In this case we can issue a Certificate of Attendance with the number of hours concluded only. However, we highly recommend that you complete all of the course as the assignments, case studies and practicum are a large part of the learning process, especially considering the personal mentoring that that you will receive. You also will lose the possibility of using this 350 hour training as a foundation of the 805 hour training.

What if I decide not to complete the 88-hour practicum?

Then you will be issued 262 hours of certification of attendance.

How does the supervision take place?

The personal supervision takes place through emails and online meetings. As soon as you send your clients completed Yoga Therapy questionnaire or practices you will get an email with guidelines and then we meet one to one online where we will explain the rationale and establish practices together. After the evaluation of your case study summary/write up, you will also receive feedback as supervision.

How many assignments are there?

In total you will have 10 assignments well spread in the 2 years training. For every assignment you get detailed feedback as tutorial support for your personal and professional development.

How can I work as a Yoga Therapist?

Upon completion of the 350-hour Yoga Therapy Training you can have your own private Yoga Therapy Clinic and give 1-2-1 sessions or work with therapeutic groups. Our graduates also work in Yoga Studios or in a complimentary capacity in health care centres, physiotherapy centres, and community centres in collaboration with homoeopathists, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, nutritionists etc. But you would have to check your countries specific requirements for certain health care jobs.

What if I have to leave for some reason in the middle of the summer training?

You are then welcome to join us the following year to complete your training. But unfortunately, we cannot refund the accommodation costs or the tuition.

As lunch is not included what are my options?

For lunch the local tavern offers a reasonable priced option of a light snack/lunch. Alternatively before you arrive you can buy fruits, bread, nuts etc.

What other costs am I likely to incur?

In addition to the ‘what is not included’ list above a student must buy their own study materials and have access to a computer or tablet with a good internet connection. You need to be able to convert documents to PDF. You might need to print the manual sent to you in advance of the residential training in order for you to read it and be better prepared for the training. You will require about €60-80 for two books for your assignments.
