We Are Accredited

Our vocational trainings are intended to provide you with the tools to bring yoga into your existing profession. If you are a registered yoga teacher, our trainings will allow you to begin working with a more specific group of people.



How will Special Yoga benefit me?

  • If you are, for example, a Special Needs Teacher, Occupational Therapist, or parent of child with special needs with no yoga experience, ‘Special Yoga for Special Children’ will prepare you with the skills to use with your child, or children, you work with.
  • If you are a Nursery, Primary, or Secondary school teacher with yoga experience ‘Teaching Yoga and Mindfulness to Children’ will prepare you with the skills to use within your classroom.
  • If you do not currently work with children/adults and have no yoga experience, we recommend further Yoga training. Please contact teachertraining@specialyoga.org.uk to discuss how we could support your development.


Are the courses accredited?

All of our courses are accredited by Yoga Alliance UK, ASDAN, and Westminster Active Mark. Special Yoga is also a British Wheel of Yoga recognized centre.
