200 & 500 hour Certification & Professional Insurance

Bodhiyoga teacher training is offered to the highest standards. Completion of the course curriculum entitles you to either a 200 or 500 hours teacher training Certificate. This will allow you to register with the Independent Yoga Network (IYN) Yoga Register. This is an internationally recognised organisation for Yoga teachers and Yoga schools also recognised by the Fitness Industry and will entitle you to obtain professional insurance and apply separately with REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals).

The Assessment process will be ongoing; based on observation by tutors, peer review and completion of assignments. Final assessment and award of the Certificate will depend on completion of the relevant courses within the time frame required for each level.

Insurance as a professional yoga teacher

Being a member of IYN (after you are Certified with Bodhiyoga this is a straightforward process) means you can take out insurance with them, provided you have U.K. residency. The insurance now covers policy holders domiciled anywhere in the world and teaching anywhere in the world except the USA and Canada.

If you are not a U.K. resident you can still join the IYN  for a small fee and seek insurance in your local country of origin. Around 200 dollars in the USA for example.

Why the Independent Yoga Network (IYN)?

We have chosen the Independent Yoga Network (IYN) Yoga Register because we recognise that it is important for yoga teachers and prospective yoga teachers to have some support from the wider yoga community. The IYN is supporting yoga teachers to maintain diversity and integrity in their approach to yoga teaching and methodology. Teachers can also acquire professional insurance through this organisation.

You can find out more about IYN through their web pages.
