Frequently asked questions
Absolutely. Our Yoga teacher training course is fully online, meaning you can set the pace and access high quality education whenever and wherever you want, thus eradicating the need and extra cost of attending an intensive face-to-face course. Adding to this, you will also have online one-to-one sessions with Kelly, our Yoga tutor, that can be arranged at a time that suits you, no matter your timezone. So, although it’s fully online, you still have personalised support throughout.
Clinical Yoga is a personalised yoga programme in which postures and sequences are prescribed and delivered by a qualified healthcare professional, such as a physiotherapist or osteopath. Clinical Yoga is typically conducted 1-on-1, or in very small groups.
Our online Yoga teacher training course was created by a physiotherapist, for physiotherapists (and other such healthcare professionals), and naturally has a large clinical component to it that enables you to safely and effectively integrate Yoga into your work with clients.
As a physiotherapist, your knowledge of human anatomy makes you the ideal Yoga teacher. By understanding how the body works, you can pick apart a Yoga posture and sequence and decide who for and in what conditions it would be most beneficial.
Not only can you use Yoga as part of your one-to-one Physiotherapy practice, but you can also cross-sell patients into classes that suit their needs. Your experience as a Physiotherapist allows you to create tailored Yoga classes for particular conditions.
As a physiotherapist, you will also have extra kudos as a Yoga teacher; those that you teach will have the added reassurance of you being a healthcare professional.
Clinical yoga offers all of the benefits associated with yoga but goes beyond this by being much more personalised. As such, the client’s chances of experiencing these benefits are improved, whilst the risk of injury is reduced.
Our yoga teacher training course is perfect for healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, who are looking to prescribe Clinical Yoga as part of a client’s rehabilitation plan with confidence.
Contrary to what many think, Yoga is not a regulated practice, nor is it a protected title. Yoga teacher training courses do not have to be affiliated or endorsed by any ‘alliance’ or ‘body’, and teachers do not need to be healthcare professionals, or trained in healthcare to any capacity.
With that said, our online Yoga teacher training course is fully accredited by the FHT, meaning that if you wish to take your yoga teacher training online, your certification will be recognised by one of the largest associations for therapists in the UK.
Yoga is an excellent practice that can help with a number of conditions that you see in your clinic as a Physiotherapist, from musculoskeletal issues to stress and anxiety. With so many adaptations, Yoga can be incredibly effective and inclusive when taught correctly.
Moreover, the benefits of adding Yoga into your practice have the potential to last way beyond the treatment room. It is no small claim to say that, taught correctly, Yoga and its related practices (breathing techniques, relaxation, and meditation) can improve a person’s wellbeing and help them better cope with life’s challenges.
