Ongoing Training

Yoga Scotland operates a system for monitoring Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of which the Ongoing Training (OGT) scheme is a part.

In summary, the system is based on retrospective self-certification for the 12 month period prior to renewal. Teachers will be required to accrue 15 CPD points every year. Ongoing Training days will continue to be run by Yoga Scotland. Each OGT day will be worth 7.5 points, so two OGT days per year will fulfil the requirements.

Our current programme is available to download from this page.


British Wheel of Yoga In-Service Training (IST) days also count as equivalent to OGT days, i.e. worth 7.5 points. Information about BWY In-Service Training events is available on the BWY Scotland website BWY Scotland IST

Teachers can also attend other training days which they feel would best further their continuing professional and personal development. These events will be worth 1 point per hour.

In addition, teachers can undertake directed private study, which can count for a maximum of 5 points in any year but must involve at least 7.5 hours of private study.
