Can my teacher trainees make up some of their course hours by attending general classes as a student?

Your training course must be a “dedicated” yoga teacher training course. This means that the entire course curriculum, content and delivery is documented and delivered as a yoga teacher training course, and not achieved by your teacher trainees making up curriculum hours by attending general yoga classes unless training based on these is an integral part of the supervised training curriculum.

You may need to provide a timetable of actual teacher training time with your course outline to satisfy the committee of this. (Attendance by a small number of other senior students at some of the advanced training sessions within your course is not necessarily precluded).
