Trainees are assessed continuously throughout the duration of the training. Attitude and commitment towards practice and teaching, personal accomplishment & progress, and the ability to understand, express and share the teachings are all considerations in deciding whether a trainee has successfully completed the course.
Attendance: 95% attendance is required in order to receive certification. Since the training is intensive there is very little room for non-attendance.
In the case of continuous non-attendance, additional hours of study on a future training will be required and a certificate of either 100, 150, or 175 hours will be issued to reflect the hours completed. Additional hours of study are subject to a teaching fee.
Please note: Teaching certificates are issued at the discretion of the Tribe teachers based on trainee performance and attainment. All students are required to reflect the aptitude and attitude of a yoga aspirant and also achieve 75% pass rates in exams and assessments. If a trainee fails in any part of the training re-takes are possible during training or if more time is needed completion can take place as and when the student is ready at a later date post training.
It is Tribes experience that all students who apply themselves to the best of their ability pass. In the rare case that a trainee needs additional time developing their understanding or skills a temporary certificate with a footnote ‘more training recommended before teaching to the public’ will be issued. Full certification will be issued on completion of additional assignments completed post training at cost.

… And then, of course, there is the fantastic teaching team. Each and every teacher has their own teaching style and has heaps of knowledge to offer to the students. I learned so much from each of them. Every day presented challenges, adventures, and growing opportunities on and off the mat, as we learned more about yoga asana, pranayama, philosophy, Ayurveda, the chakras.

One word that summarizes my experience with Tribe is ‘’transformative’’. I came out a different person. More conscious, with a better attitude towards myself and the universe and a deeper understanding of what Life is all about…
…. Conclusion: Deep down from my heart I want to share that the 4 weeks I have spent with Tribe Yoga has been one of the most cherished experiences in my life.

I am into yoga since 2003 as I was a monk in a spiritual community for 7 years, doing yoga, meditation, vegetarianism, fasting, chastity, poverty, obedience, and many other ascetic things. I practiced many types of yoga and Teachers were really well prepared, not just in poses, also in philosophy, spirituality, diet, complementary medicine, mantras, kriyas. Scarlett is a force of nature! I love the kindness and the warm heart of all of the teachers.

It was rigorous, it pushed my boundaries to the point that I became a completely different person. The person I have always hoped to become: Like a jigsaw puzzle, the many pieces of my life seemed to just fall into place – I was able to adopt teachings into my daily life by ACTUALLY DOING THE WORK. I know in my heart that Tribe has shown me the path towards The Awesome Now it’s up to me to walk that path. Thank you so much for your guidance Tribe!!!!

Tribe possesses a professional teaching faculty, who are motivated, encouraging, well experienced, in addition to being masterfully talented in their teaching capabilities. Not only has completing the training deepened my dedication and motivation towards my own personal practice, but it has also led to enlightening self-discovery and beautiful awakening.

A once in a lifetime experience. This fully comprehensive course allowed improvement for yoga asana and self-practice but gave valuable tools for life as a yoga teacher and human being. Fabulous!”

… I can’t speak highly enough of the experience. Throughout the duration of the training all time was fully utilized and it was clear that there was an immense amount of planning and structure integrated into the experience. The teachers are absolutely top-notch, to say the least… Without Tribe, I wouldn’t have been able to move into such fields professionally. Don’t hesitate, it’s worth every bit of your investment.

… I am indebted to Tribe and all of their trainers as they shared their knowledge, passion. I really felt there was time and space to listen and be attentive to the physical and spiritual changes that were happening, which was wonderful.
It was exactly during this course that I felt like I arrived home. I learned a lot. I felt very alive and became super-sensitive to the things I hadn’t been previously aware of. Thanks to this, I was able to work on myself not just as a yoga teacher but more so as a human being. Through the beautiful presence of the teachers, I allowed myself to soften into knowing, that all truly is well!”

“Since January 2013, I have consistently had a daily practice, incorporating it into every aspect of my life… I can’t thank Tribe Yoga enough for the fantastic training. My yoga journey continually grows and my whole life feels in line with what the universe has in store for me. My classes are a credit to the teachings of the whole Tribe Yoga team and the countless gifts the other students on the course passed on to me!
Our style of yoga is not led by one specific school of training, Tribe teachers have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from their individual yoga journeys collectively offering an authentic foundation in hatha yoga interlaced with other styles to inspire your onward journey of development. The emphasis on the meditation aspect of yoga practice is an opportunity to take your inquiry deeper both on and off the mat.
