Can I teach yoga after attending this course?
Yes, you can. Most of our Teacher Training graduates are now full-time yoga teachers in Hong Kong as well as volunteer teachers in charity organisations, such as the Andiappan Yoga Community,(www.yogacommunity.org) where we offer opportunities to teach yoga in various places in Hong Kong. The Andiappan Yoga Community is a non-profit organisation that aims to share the joy and health benefits of Andiappan Yoga teachings with as many people as possible. We organise social community events such as free yoga classes to the public in places with little access to yoga centre memberships. Our volunteers are all qualified yoga teachers with specializations to teach different groups of individuals, such as those with specific illnesses, disabilities, and the underprivileged. As of today, our graduates have been volunteering for the Andiappan Yoga Community in partnership with the following organisations:
- Changing Young Lives Foundation
- Autism Partnership School
- Yan Oi Tong
- Hong Kong Eating Disorder Association
- Quintessentially Foundation
- Hong Kong Cancer fund

Once I have completed the teacher training, how could I further my knowledge in yoga practices and philosophy?
We recommend you to keep yourself under the guidance of experienced masters. Our masters are willing to give you full guidance and support even after you have completed the training. This is very important in staying inspired throughout your practice. You can also attend our other accredited yoga teacher training courses to deepen your learning in various topics of yoga:
200hrs Yoga Teacher Training Course. (200RYT)
We highly recommend you take this course after or before the prenatal yoga course as it covers the basics of yoga and its various practices. It is an open-level training programme, suitable for those who have never done yoga before as well as those who have put in years of practice. Through the 200hrs foundation course, students gain a better understanding of yogs’s origins, history, as well as its philosophy. Students also learn how they may improve on their postures, that they may execute them with accuracy and, later, be able to demonstrate it to others.

A therapeutic approach to yoga is the best way to start your practice. Yoga Therapy is the future of yoga.

The best way to start teaching yoga is to teach kids. Kids are fun to be with and open-minded as long as it is fun and creative. Kids yoga is now taught in schools and most sports centres. This Kids Yoga Teacher Training course will prepare you with all the tools to teach kids up to the age of 18.
