To keep book costs to a minimum, we have established a library-sharing scheme for books on the recommended Course Reference Book List that you will get upon registration. Each student will bring along an allocated book to the library, the title of which will be given to you on registration. Our shared-library scheme enables you to familiarise yourself with a good selection of books that you may then later wish to purchase to start building your own yoga reference library. You are expected to familiarise yourself with your allocated shared-library book and be able to present a brief outline of your book to your fellow teacher trainees.


We also have an arrangement with Yogamatters whereby you will receive a good percentage reduction for books. Please inform Yogamatters when ordering that you are a Yoga Academy teacher trainee.
