Yoga108 certificates are issued only to students who have fully passed all the practical and theoretical exams.
The course is designed specifically for training hatha yoga instructors, but willing volunteers can pass it “for themselves”, without passing exams and certification. In this case, when passing the entire course, a certificate is issued “I listened to the course program without passing exams and certification”. The auditors who completed the entire course can take theoretical exams (the result will be saved), and the practical exams pass in a year or two, as the practical experience of performing the necessary asanas is gained.
One-time visits are not provided.
It should be noted that the success and credibility of the teacher depends on the amount of his knowledge and ability to conduct classes professionally and safely.
Some people think in vain that the “piece of paper” with the names of Western yoga organizations, federations and alliances (all these are private commercial projects that mainly collect contributions and in exchange provide their logo without actually controlling the quality of education – and more and more people are knows) will make you a reputable teacher. Several classes were held – and everything is clear to both the employer and the students. If the instructor leads poorly, no titles, logos, labels and stamps will help him. Therefore, your main “certificate” is your knowledge and skills gained during the course.

Alexey Kiselev: “For me, yoga is a way of thinking and a way of life. I believe that yoga can give a lot to everyone. Classes can be quite different: it depends on the degree of health and fitness of the body and mind, lifestyle and type of work activity. Yoga considers a person as a system of shells (physical, mental, etc.), so in class I try to give exercises for each of them: a workout for the body, prana-vyayama, asanas (postures), dynamic transitions between asanas (vinyasas), breathing exercises (pranayama). For advanced groups, turns in space, complex pranayamas, the foundations of meditation. ”
