How You’ll Be Assessed

All students will need to complete both theoretical and practical assessments in order to pass the Level 3 Yoga Teacher Training Course. 

The theoretical assessments are all open-book and multiple-choice. These are to be completed via OriGym’s E-learning platform after you have worked through the corresponding module’s content. 

For the final module, you will need to complete a case study and practical assessment, which will take place at one of OriGym’s training centres located across the UK. To make things easier, you can even select a time, date and location to suit your preferences. 

We offer unlimited FREE resists to all our students! This means you can retake any elements of your Level 3 Yoga Qualification without paying extra.

How You'll Learn

OriGym’s Level 3 Yoga Qualification is taught via a ‘blended’ study method. 

This combines the flexibility of online learning with the benefits of in-person workshops, to give you both theoretical and practical teaching experience.

Following the enrolment process, you will have access to our E-learning platform where you will work through a series of modules with assessments. This process is entirely self-paced, as there are no associated deadlines to meet. 

Should you ever have any questions or queries whilst working through the online elements of the course, you can reach out to our team of expert tutors who are available 7 days a week via phone, email or chatbox.

Whilst earning your Level 3 Certificate in Teaching Yoga you’ll also need to attend in-person workshops. These sessions regularly run from OriGym's training centres across the UK, including weekends!

These workshops are an opportunity to develop your asana practice, learn hands-on adjustments and gain practical teaching experience, as well as interact with your tutors and fellow students.

After qualifying, you will continue to receive support for OriGym! Our post-course support team will be on hand to help boost your employability, providing services such as:

Career Progression Routes

Our level 3 certificate in teaching yoga gives you a solid foundation of skills, knowledge and experience to progress as a yoga teacher. A great natural progression is to enrol on our Level 4 Yoga Teacher Training Qualification

This builds on what you have already learnt on the Level 3 course, as well as allowing you to specialise in a specific type of yoga. In doing so you can increase your employability, and charge more for your classes as an expert in a particular field. 

Alternatively, you could explore a different avenue of the health and fitness industry and earn a Personal Training Diploma. In doing so, you can learn how to create bespoke workout programmes for individual clients, to meet their specific goals.

Level 3 Yoga Certification image

What You’ll Learn

OriGym provides a plethora of theoretical and practical resources, in order to ensure that our students meet and exceed national standards held by industry regulators and employers. 

As this course is taught via blended learning, you will complete the virtual elements online via OriGym’s E-learning platform. This process will be entirely self-paced, allowing you to study when you want and where you want.

You will also need to attend practical workshops and assessments in order to complete your Level 3 Diploma in teaching yoga. These sessions run from our various training centres across the UK, all of which are accessible via public transport. 

  • Planning a Level 3 Yoga Session

Yoga classes can’t be rushed or improvised which is why this module is dedicated to learning how to structure a session, taking each movement into account in order to create an effective sequence.

During this module, you will also learn how to adapt your teaching for special populations, including children, the elderly, those with disabilities and students who are pre/post-natal.  

  • Delivering a Level 3 Yoga Session 

During your Level 3 Yoga Qualification you’ll also learn how to put your plans into practice, becoming an effective instructor who is capable of leading both group and one-to-one classes. 

But becoming an instructor is much more than learning how to perform and teach the asanas. You’ll also develop an understanding of how to motivate students, in order to build a strong rapport with them.

  • Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga

Studying anatomy and physiology betters your understanding of how the body responds to yoga. Specifically, you will learn what muscles are used during each asana, and how different systems interact during sessions. 

By acquiring this knowledge, your own practice will significantly improve and you will be able to offer beneficial insight to future students. 

  • Health and Safety During Yoga

As you earn your Level 3 Certificate in Teaching Yoga you will become familiar with ‘RIDDOR’ (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations), an anagram used to describe your duty of care as a teacher. 

This includes learning how to safely handle different situations that may arise during class. This includes

  • Maintaining equality and diversity whilst teaching
  • Recognising and handling complaints
  • Keeping records of incidents

Through acquiring this knowledge and skills, you will be able to create a safe and nurturing environment for every student.

Your Level 3 Diploma In Yoga Teaching will be requested from the awarding body upon full payment of your course . Expect delivery within 6-8 weeks, but In the interim, an internal certificate will be provided to help with your job search. 

For those on a payment plan, certificates will be released upon clearance of the balance, which can be done ahead of schedule at no extra cost.

This is an entry-level qualification, meaning that you can study yoga at Level 3 without having any prior experience or certifications. 

However, all students must be aged 16+ to enrol! 

OriGym’s qualification is entirely self-paced, with no associated deadlines. This allows study around any existing commitments, finishing the course in a timeframe that suits your needs. 

On average, it takes students 3-4 months to earn their Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Yoga.

As the course is taught via a blended learning approach, all students will have access to resources that support their practical and theoretical development. 

For example, when completing the online modules students can contact our team of expert tutors via phone, email or chatbox. This support is available 7 days a week and can be used to resolve any questions that may arise during independent virtual learning.

Additionally, the in-person workshops will allow students to develop their practical yoga skills, whilst receiving feedback directly from industry experts. 

As one of the best providers of yoga teacher training in the UK, OriGym will always be on hand to help kickstart your career.

For example, our team of yoga experts will analyse and optimise your CV before distributing it to local partners, ensuring it meets the high standards held by industry employers.

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.
