    5. 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 without an extra charge, although students must view the recording and complete the assessment for each topic missed. If the student misses between 30 and 46 hours of Synchronous Learning they must attend at least part of the second Synchronous Top up Weekend for which there is a charge. The cost of these make up sessions is 250 Euros per half day (4 hours sessions) shared between the numbers of students that must attend. Alternatively, students may attend the following year the webinar or missed online weekend for free.

    6. Can you clarify the Accreditation of the Yoga Therapy Training

    The certification of the 350 hours Yoga Therapy Training is not accredited by any association or board. The 350 hours Yoga Therapy Greece Training forms part of the Yoga Therapy Training 800 hours which is accredited by the Accreditation Committee of the International Association of Yoga Therapists(IAYT). For more information, see www.iayt.org.

    7. Why can't the 350 hours training be accredited by IAYT?

    IAYT have extremely high standards and accredits only a minimum 800 hours training.

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

    In this case we can issue a Certificate of Attendance 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 mentoring that that you will receive. You also will lose the possibility of using this 350 hour training as a foundation of the 800 hour training.

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

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

    10. How does the supervision take place?

    The 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 online where we will explain the rationale and establish practices together. After the evaluation of your case study summary/write up, you will also get written detailed feedback.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    15. 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. They need to be able to convert documents to PDF.
    They 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.
    They will require about €60-80 for two books for their assignments.

    Since I have finished my classical Yoga teacher trainings, I have been on the hunt to learn more and more about the therapeutically aspect of Yoga.Join this course, was a great decision from professional and human point of view. I felt safe to share a deeper part of myself within the safe environment created and the experience was amazing.

    I loved the material and the way in which it has been presented.

    This course was an amazing way to experience different perspectives and approaches to teaching yoga which now I already use for my own practice as well as in my classes. After this course I feel inspired to share what I have learned. Thank you Evi

    The Yoga Therapy Training program is a complete program covering the entire range of medical conditions. The practices taught are fully explained and evidence based on the latest developments of science. The proposed bibliography includes the most appropriate books on the subjects being taught.

    The most important is Evi, who, with her high level of training, her transmissibility, her immediacy, her support and her patience, puts us in the world of Yoga Therapy and gives us all the resources to continue. Thank you Evi for the knowledge and the new horizons you offered me.
