what our people say
If you’re interested in digging deeper into the spiritual path and yoga, this is the place to study. With mind expanding lectures and loving teachers, Wise Living Yoga Academy is a family that I am honoured to be apart of. Truly one of the best experiences of my life.
The online classes with Carrie are lovely. They're always extremely positive and relaxing, and Carrie is a great teacher who explains everything really beautifully and calmly, and I always come away from the sessions feeling so relaxed and happy.
WLYA was the best decision I could have made to study true authentic Yoga! I learned and took away much more than I ever anticipated!
The Frog Project classes are great for everybody as each movement and option is explained to suit the individual. I always feel welcome and supported by Carrie's friendliness, gentle approach and humour.
Do I need a separate booking if I'm joining with my housemate/spouse?
We are more than happy for people to join with a partner or friend, but you will require two bookings and two payments. If possible, it is encouraged that you join with seperate computers in seperate spaces to get the most out of the course on an individual level. However, if you have exceptional circumstances and this is not possible for any reason, please get in touch to discuss.
Do I need to have my mic and camera on?
Yes. The course will be completely interactive. We will require your camera on at all times (of course if there are excpetional circumstances, please get in touch to discuss), and your mic may be muted during certain lectures and asana and pranayama classes.
What if I'm unable to attend some of the Live sessions?
If you anticipate that you will be unable to attend some of the Live Sessions due to prior engagments, please contact email@example.com to discuss your situation.
What style of yoga do you teach on the 200 hour YTT?
The asana taught on the YTT can be described as Hatha yoga, but that means so many different things to so many different people. We teach classical yoga asana in line with the four bhavas or attitudes/feelings. We teach that all asana can fall into one of four categories including cultivating meditation & stillness, building strength & balance, surrending to restoration & letting go, and sparking confidence and will power. This approach to teaching asana is incredibly holistic and will equip the practitioner with a plethora of skills to become their own teacher. You can read more about our approach here.
Will I be a fully accredited yoga teacher after the course?
Yes, if you attend all of the live sessions (where possible), complete the self study and successfully pass the assessment you will be a fully accredited 200 hour Yoga Teacher. Our course is fully accreditated by Yoga Alliance USA (which covers you to teach world-wide) and the World's oldest yoga institute, The Yoga Institue of Santacruz, Mumbai.
What platform are the Live classes hosted on?
All of the Live classes are live streamed on Zoom in secure and encrypted meetings. Each participant receives a link to enter (which shouldn't be shared) and will enter a waiting room upon arrival. Meeting links are not shared anywhere and so only our students can join.
Which countries can I join from?
Through the power of the internet you can join from any country. Carrie is based in the UK and Jeenal in Thailand. Our special guests will also join from India and other countries around the world.
My internet connection isn't great, will I be able to join?
We stream all of our classes via Zoom who will alter the quality of the stream dependant on your internet connection. For example, if you have a good connection you will receive a HD quality image and great audio. If your internet isn't brilliant you will get a reduced quality image but it should still be good enough to participate fully. We recommend an internet connection of at least 1mb/s. You can check the speed of your connection here.
