Will I be able to teach after this course?
After completing our training courses you will be able to teach the population that the course was geared towards. Please note that none of our trainings are Adult Yoga Teacher Training courses, for this we recommend you take a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training.
Will i be able to teach children after this course?
If you wish to teach children within the general population you may wish to take our TYMC course. If you wish to teach children with special and additional needs you will be equipped to teach the populations covered by the course you have attended, for example Special Yoga for Cerebral Palsy and Profound Multiple Learning Disabilities, Special yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD etc. Over our three Special Yoga for Special Children courses (foundation, level 1 and level 2) we teach the broadest range of practices and how to adapt them to most diagnosis.
How do I get insured?
Once completing any of our courses you will be able to obtain insurance to the level trained. We can recommend BGi insurance https://bgi.uk.com/, who recognise all of our trainings.
When will your courses be in person?
We are not currently planning to teach any of our courses in person. Our online training has been developed to give students an experience which is as close to 'live' trainings as possible. This includes 'live' teaching and study group webinars and demonstrating practices using films of 'in person' training courses. Students have fed back to us that they really benefit from being able to playback these videos and re-watch webinar recordings as it helps to consolidate their learning. Since developing our online training we have also realised the benefit of students being able to access our trainings across the world by our online school and for everyone to be able to study to fit around their own schedule.
Do you offer discounts/concessions?
We don't currently offer any standard rate of discounts or concessions, however we feel our course represent excellent value and we also provide t he option to pay using an interest free payment plan on most of our courses. We are here to support your journey and ensure that all of our courses are inclusive, if finances are a potential barrier for accessing our trainings please do get in touch.
Can i call myself a special yoga practitioner?
The Special Yoga Path offers the potential to become a Special Yoga practitioner after completing and passing the Special Yoga for Special Children Level 1. More information about the Special Yoga Path can be seen on this page.
Can i use the Special Yoga logo on my website?
We have a family of logos, one or more of which you are able to include on your website according to the training you have taken. These will be sent to you, with guidance on usage, upon request after you have completed your training with us.

Wonderful, easy to take up with many levels of special need and mainstream children. Was thinking I could adapt some of the soundings to childrens names as we have many varying relegions. I have been a student of zen buddhism for 15 years and love to be able to be open and flexible in delivery of mindfulness sessions. Thank you, I hope some day to meet you Jyoti. Love and best wishes to you from N.Z to the UK. xxxxx From Jyoti: Thank you so much Karen - yes adapt the soundings to children's names. we have done that in the past and it really works; given the power of the vibration of Om - I would try to keep that piece as you sing the names. The vibration of omm supports vagal tone which in turn calms the nervous system. good luck...blessings and love to you xRead Less
