membership-stamp---TRAINER.png

The Revival Yoga Teacher Training is the first bespoke fully-funded teacher training course specifically designed for BME yoga students.

 

The course has been carefully planned to help prepare students to become yoga teachers but also ready for the range of students they will encounter after they qualify. Students will have access to the very best faculty of senior teachers who are all experts in their field - ready to teach and guide them through the entire training. In addition they will each be assigned their own personal yoga mentor who they will meet with regularly. Their role is to nurture and support the student throughout their journey.

 

As the Revival Yoga Teacher Training is fully-funded all places on the course are highly valued and so students will need to firmly commit to diligently arrive in good time for each session, attend all training weekends as well as a final teaching exam and fulfill all the extra requirements of the training (please see below).

Course Commitment & Minimum Attendance: 

The minimum attendance rate required for the Revival Teacher Training Course  is 100% - 24 training days + 1 teaching exam.  We will allow for mitigating circumstances and permit the maximum of 2 training days to be missed over the whole duration of the course. We reserve the right to ask a student to leave the course if they are not meeting the minimum attendance requirement or not showing the appropriate commitment as agreed by them upon acceptance of their place on the course. Catching-up on any missed content from training weekends is the responsibility of the student.  Any assistance offered by the module teacher is at their sole discretion and not a teaching faculty requirement.

 

We also reserve the right to not pass or accredit any student for the same reasons above.  If The Yoga For Life Project feels any student is not ready to become a yoga teacher by the end of the course we reserve the right to postpone their graduation to a later date to allow time for an offer of appropriate support and extra teaching resources to help them meet the requirements to pass. If the student declines this offer of additional support we will not be able to accredit them.

There may be homework/assignments/coursework set after each Module.  Students are expected to complete and hand these assignments in by the date specified - this is an essential requirement toward gaining the final teacher training qualification from Yoga Alliance Professionals.  If students require help with any issue they have regarding the completion of work that has been set they are asked to contact the Course Teacher Training Director or the student's own Mentor as soon as possible so the appropriate support can be offered.

The Yoga For Life Project has the right to cancel or rearrange training dates if a teacher falls ill and a suitable replacement cannot be found or if the training venue booked is unable to accommodate the course as agreed.
