OriGym’s Level 4 Certificate in Yoga Teaching builds on the foundation established during the Level 3 course. Here you will develop your understanding of the practice’s history and philosophy, through the advancement of your practical skills and theoretical knowledge. 

This includes developing a specialist variation, choosing from Hot, Vinyasa, Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. 

Teaching Yoga as a Profession

You will learn how to operate as a professional yoga teacher during this module. This includes studying:

  • The legalities of setting up a business
  • Your duty of care as a teacher 
  • The process of conducting a risk assessment 
  • Relevant health and safety legislation 

Through acquiring this knowledge you can ensure that your yoga classes are safe and beneficial for all future students. 

Understanding and Applying the Philosophy and Spiritual Principles of Yoga

Whilst acquiring your Level 4 Yoga Diploma you will strengthen your teaching style by studying the origins and rich history of the practice, spanning ancient philosophies such as the principles of meditation and the 8 limbs of yoga.

During this module you will also learn about the many different variations of yoga, how they differentiate from each other and the benefits each one holds. 

Yogic Breathing Styles

Whilst asanas, movements and philosophies play a large role in every class, an often overlooked aspect of teaching is imparting breathing techniques. This is why you’ll learn how to execute and teach various breathing styles designed to help ease the physical elements of classes. 

Teaching Asana to Meet the Needs of Mixed-Ability Students

During your Level 4 Yoga Teacher Training you will learn how to conduct risk assessments. The information gained during this process will help you adapt aspects of your classes, to meet the needs of mixed-ability students.

The module will cover a range of asanas including:

  • Sun Salutations A + B
  • Seated Asanas
  • Standing Asanas
  • Bending Asanas
  • Twists Asanas
  • Supine and Prone Asana

You’ll study each one in-depth learning how they can be altered to suit a variety of needs.

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!

Heather Hacking, Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer.

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.
