Complaints Procedure:

This should include a day-to-day breakdown of what is being taught and the allocated hours.We reserve the right to request a copy of your full Training Manual at any point.  This should should be available to us upon request from the start of your first training course.

Your manual will be the largest of all documents and should include ALL of the handouts that are given to the students throughout the course (or in some cases will be given all together at the beginning of the course).  They should include diagrams, worksheets, course notes etc.



General Guidelines:


70% of the module must be delivered by a registered SYT who has proven experience in teaching pregnancy.   Potential students must either have already completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training course (minimum) or be a fully qualified midwife. These would both need to be confirmed with a diploma or degree certificate.

Once someone has completed a course which has met these standards, they will be eligible to teach ONLY pregnancy yoga (if they do not already hold a 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate). If they have also completed a full 200 hour teacher training course, they are eligible to teach both general yoga and pregnancy yoga.


Your course will receive a RYSP (Registered Yoga School Pregnancy) logo and will be entitled to use this on your website and marketing material.


Your graduates will be qualified to teacher pregnancy yoga and will be eligible to register themselves with Yoga Alliance UK as an RYTP.
