Upgrade your Teaching Qualifications

If you have already completed a 200 or 350 hour teacher training program with AYA or any other accredited school, you can upgrade your qualification to 500 hours (accredited by Yoga Alliance) by completing a selection of our Advanced Teacher Training Programs.

AYA’s Advanced Teacher Training Programs have been developed for already qualified yoga teachers who are seeking to deepen their personal practice, develop their knowledge and professional skills and specialise in specific areas of yoga.

We offer a variety of advanced teacher training programmes. Please see the Advanced Teacher Training area of the website for the course details and information packs. Chose from advanced training many areas including:

  • Yin Yoga

  • Meditation
  • Functional Anatomy
  • Yoga & Mindfulness for Children & Teens; and
  • A variety of teaching skills areas

These programs are each conducted once a year only.

You do not have to complete them all, rather, you can select the ones you are interested in.

Upon completion of each program you undertake, you will receive a separate certificate in recognition of your accomplishment.

Once you have completed enough advanced programs to upgrade your YTT qualification to 500 hours, we will also provide you with a 500 hour training
