Dec-09-2020 15-54-32

You can also reference your further training in the About Us section of your profile. 

I'm on an online 200-hour course, can I still join when I graduate?

This depends on who you are training with. We have made some temporary policy changes to allow our trainers to move their accredited syllabi online.

If you are training with one of our accredited trainers, then you will still be able to join as a registered yoga teacher after you graduate! If your course is not accredited then we will need to move to get your trainer's course accredited. 

Will online further training still count towards my further training hours?

Yes, you can include any further training done online into your further training hours.

Your further training hours accounts for up to 30% of your total teaching hours to upgrade your membership level.

How can a trainee upgrade to a teacher?

Your Trainer will normally notify us within 7 days of your course graduation and you can expect to receive an email invitation regarding upgrading to a Teacher Membership.

If you do not receive this and would like to upgrade, please contact our office on 0131 659 9922.

Does YAP take a fee per person who signs up for my teacher training through your platform?

We do not take a fee for the individuals who sign up for your courses. We are a platform that connects individuals looking to embark on a training course with those who offer a suitable course for them.
