In This Course You Will...

Receive a professional, vocational certification as an Advanced Yoga Sports Coachā„¢.

An integral part of your training and development will be a Case Study which you undertake on an unpaid basis with an athlete normally local to your area, in which you will research and apply the YSS techniques and Methodology as an intervention within the athlete’s training program.
This experience will greatly enhance and reinforce your learning. Your Case Study will also contribute towards the ever-growing bank of scientific research we are developing to demonstrate the positive impact of Yoga Sports Science® Methodology in the world of sport.
We are the first organization in the world to develop a research method specifically for assessing the benefits of yoga in an athletic environment. You will use the YSS Log Book and YSS Data Gram to gather your findings, which, together with your interpretation, will form the basis of the final assignment, your Case Study Report.
