Courses that upgrade qualifications attract CPD points with relevant industry bodies and are registered where required.
Technically, you need to complete a minimum of 200 hours of formal training to obtain a qualification that entitles you to apply for insurance to teach yoga. Formal training consists of yoga teacher training courses that are offered with the intention to provide a qualification. For example, undertaking 200 hours of yoga classes does not qualify you as a yoga teacher for insurance purposes. It is a good idea to enrol in a course that is registered and recognised by an industry body to ensure you can obtain adequate insurance. Zama Institute courses are recognised by Yoga Australia.

Yes, definitely! The minimum amount of yoga teacher training to teach worldwide is 200hrs. Australian yoga teachers can get insurance to teach, with a 200hr registered course such as the ones that we offer here at Zama, to teach all over the world. If you wish to obtain insurance to teach in the United States or Canada, insurance companies have different stipulations for the US & Canada based on the laws in those countries and you must be a resident to obtain insurance directly with an American or Canadian insurance company. However, residents of the US and Canada who graduate from a Zama Institute course are able to purchase insurance cover to teach in the US and Canada.
