What You’ll Learn

OriGym's Level 3 yoga teacher training course covers over 400 hours’ worth of both theoretical and practical content. 

You will complete the theory work online with the support of our qualified tutors. Whilst also attending regular practical workshops in various locations across the UK.

  • Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga

This module is all about understanding how the human body works, including how various systems interact with one another during yoga. You will also learn which muscles are used in each asana to inform your teaching. 

  • Health and Safety During Yoga

You will become familiar with ‘RIDDOR’ (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) and your duty of care as a yoga instructor. This includes learning how to maintain equality and diversity whilst teaching, recognising and handling complaints, what to do in situations that may arise during a class and how to keep records effectively.

  • Planning a Level 3 Yoga Session

Learn how to plan and deliver a yoga session for both individuals and groups, taking into consideration the sequence and structure of the class. The module also covers how to adapt your teaching style for special populations such as pregnant women, children, the elderly, and those with disabilities. 

  • Delivering a Level 3 Yoga Session 

Discover important teaching techniques for delivering a yoga class, including how to instruct effectively, motivate and build rapport with students. This knowledge will build your confidence when teaching both groups and one-to-one students.

There’s no educational prerequisites for the Level 3 course as it’s the foundational, entry-level qualification.

You do need to be at least 16 years old and, of course, ideally have a passion for yoga!

As an average the course usually takes between 3 and 4 months but this is just a rough estimate as it’s completely flexible to your schedule!

You can study and complete the online elements at your own pace and take as much time as you need around your existing commitments.

Whilst you’re studying you’ll be able to speak to our tutoring team 7 days a week. They’re available by email, over the phone, and via our chat box to help with any support you need!

As the course is hybrid, you’ll have access to both in-person workshops and our industry leading e-learning platform complete with instructional videos, demonstrations, lectures, interactive learning as well as your assignments, all in one place.

Once you graduate we’ll help you get your career started. You’ll continue to have access to our e-platform where you’ll be able to find post-graduation guides and videos to help you with business practices and marketing techniques. 

You’ll also get a member of our team to analyse your CV to make sure it’s optimised and ready to send out to a variety of locations!

Our Level 3 Yoga Diploma is regulated by Ofqual and awarded by the governing body Focus Awards, so you can be confident that your training will meet the highest industry standards.  

Teacher training hours just means how many hours of learning material and planning and delivering lessons the course equates to as a whole. 

The industry standard for foundational courses is 200 hours but ours is 317, giving you more learning and experience before becoming a teacher!

The vast majority of the guided learning hours are made up of planning and delivering yoga classes to give you actionable, practical experience for teaching.

A large proportion of the hours are also spent learning about, and applying, the philosophy of yoga to your classes. This way you can show your students the history of the practice and the traditional benefits beyond just in terms of fitness!

The rest of the time is made up of learning the essential elements of yoga practice and how the human body works during activity. 

The cost of the course is £899 and you can spread the cost over up to 12 months completely interest-free. There’s no additional costs for registration, certification or any exam resits you might need to take.


After qualifying, friendly careers team will help you get your first job as a yoga teacher.

Dean Dallas

Personal Trainer

Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Before OriGym Dean was pursuing a career in football. After setbacks due to injury, Dean developed an interest in strength and conditioning and injury prevention, pivoting his career into becoming a qualified personal trainer.

OriGym really stood out to me because I was able to complete my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer qualifications in my own time without deadlines. This really took the stress off and allowed me to go about my daily schedule without interruption.

The tutors at OriGym created a great support network and provided us with practical workshops to further our development. I am now a certified personal trainer and can’t wait to help future clients in achieving their goals!

Founder of Heather Hacking PT

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.
