Assessment and Certification

The student is throughout the course assessed on all sections covered by the curriculum. The student’s understanding of the science of yoga will be evaluated through a written exam at the end of the course. The student shall pass all aspects of the course to be eligible for a certificate.  

If someone is not motivated to follow the curriculum and is of disturbance for other students and the general environment, Equmind has the right to ask that person to leave. This is a training that requires effort from the student. Therefore, we hold high standards for granting the yoga teacher certificate.

Upon successful completion of the course the student will receive a certificate of the Equmind 200h Teacher Training Course. Equmind is in the process of applying for Yoga Alliance certification. This means that the training will follow the guidelines and curriculum that Yoga Alliance requires, but will not yet give the student (Yoga Alliance) RYT 200 certificate. The training will, however, allow you to apply for the Yoga Alliance certification as soon as the Equmind Yoga Alliance Certification has been approved for you to become a registered teacher if you so wish.
