The course is non-graded with the emphasis on competence to teach yoga. Evidence of meeting requirements of assignments will be through a variety of means including discussion, worksheets, written work. As well as completing such assignments you will be observed on your teaching as a means of providing evidence of your application of your skills and knowledge.
All who teach, however experienced, can benefit from a review of what they do. Some of the teaching during the course will be informally assessed, but where it is a formal teaching practice assessment you will receive a ‘pass or refer’.

|Comments from past students regarding the best features of the course:|
The wealth of knowledge, passion and experience the tutors brought with them and shared freely. The way the group was encouraged to support each other and grow together, and opportunities to learn from each other.
I also thought the way the course integrated theory and practical teaching skills was excellent, the variety of topics covered was also excellent the depth of study into the classical texts as well as anatomical focus on postures and injury prevention.
The focus on individual personal development of practise as well as development of teaching skills was great with lots of opportunity to receive individual feedback rather than just being a number going through a course to pass it instead I feel I have really come away with better tools for evaluating my own teaching and am beginning to put these into practise to be able to share the teachings of Yoga more effectively with my students.
The variety of pranayama practices explored, including ratio breathing. The emphasis on the early yogic texts as sources of understanding and inspiration. The quality of the diploma teachers knowledge and practice
I would like to see the following changes:
I think it would be hard to improve this course which I felt was well taught, well supported and well resourced.
