The guidelines as set out by Balens:
You can do a variety of pre-recorded and live online classes. However, given that you should be following the in-person syllabus, live classes are the best way of simulating the “class” experience.
Yes - the more in-person training you can do the better! Only resume in-person training when the Government relaxes the lockdown restrictions.
For areas that cannot be fully covered in an online training, we recommend follow up face to face training workshops for your students after the lockdown is over. If your course is scheduled to run over several months, then our recommendation is to leave the adjustments to the end of the course.
We recommend that you continue to assess your students using your judgement. You can ask students to email homework assessments and mark them remotely, providing feedback by phone or email. For practical assessments, you can assess students via video platforms such as Zoom/Skype. If you are using pre-recorded classes, you may wish to increase the number of assessments so you can check for understanding. A short set of questions to complete at the end of each video will allow you to gain an insight into your students' knowledge.
For the final assessment, students should be assessed individually via a video platform.
If the course is accredited with Yoga Alliance Professionals and meets our in-person requirements you can carry out further training and specialist training courses online.
Yes - If Yoga Alliance Professionals has accredited and approved the in-person syllabus (before it moved online). If you would like to register a course so that your students gain insurance please speak to one of our team.
Yes. As long as you have kept to the syllabus, your course is accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals and the trainees have completed and passed the final assessment.
No, we still recommend that your students have a minimum of 2 years of personal yoga practice before registering onto a course.
