We will also teach you how to teach  IYSF Yoga Sport Class ( 55-posture - 90-min or 41-posture - 60-minute dynamic intermediate hatha yoga class that is suitable to be practiced with or without heat). This class is suitable for all levels and covers all aspects of the spine: forward bends, backward bends, tractions, twists, couple of lifts and one inversion: shoulder stand.

Studios and federations should offer Yoga Sport Classes and Yoga Sport Skill Classes daily in order to promote Yoga Sport and prepare kids and adults for the competition.

Everyone who is eligible can take this online program.
It can be attended for your personal teacher/coach education, but if you want to get certified at the end as A-level (international certification) coach and get promoted by IYSF we will request your national federation recommendation.

In order to get certified:

  • After each posture group session (Spine, Hips, Lifts, Inversions) you will be requested to record yourself teaching a Yoga Sport Skill Class. Content for Yoga Skill Classes will be delivered online. We recommend all federations and studios to organize their own athletes training in between each session, let their coaches teach and apply their new skills, record their classes and send us.
  • At the end of the training, you will be requested to record yourself teaching a Yoga Sport Class. Yoga Sport Class dialogue to study will be sent after your registration for this training.

This online program can be attended in groups but also by individuals.
