Full Details

The course will cover emergency life support, including CPR and use of a defibrillator. 

IYUK will now require teachers to undergo at least a short course covering emergency life support every 3 years.  This course meets that requirement for all existing Iyengar yoga teachers.

Teacher trainees will need to do a full day course before their assessment – please contact clare@mdiiy.org.uk to ask about full day courses.

The courses are also open to all members who are interested in learning the basics of emergency first aid.

Frequently Asked Questions about the new IY(UK) First Aid requirements:

Please note these only refer to IY(UK)’s requirements.  If you need a first aid qualification for any other organisation (e.g. a gym you teach at), you will need to check with them whether they will accept this.

Question: I did a full day Emergency First Aid At Work course but that was over 3 years ago (so it’s now out of date).  Do I need to do it again before I can do the “minimum requirement” course?

Answer: No, you can do any course that meets the minimum requirement (covers emergency life support, including CPR and defibrillator) now.  

Question: I have been a teacher for some time and have never done a full day Emergency First Aid At Work course, do I need to do that now?

Answer: No, you can do any course that meets the minimum requirement (covers emergency life support, including CPR and defibrillator) now.  
Question: The provider doesn’t give a certificate, so is this valid for IY(UK)’s requirements?
Answer: Yes, you don’t need a certificate (but do need to do the course with a recognised provider).  At renewal you will be asked to enter course provider and date (and if you have a certificate, the number – this will be optional).
Question: The provider for the shorter emergency life support course told me that it’s only valid for 1 year, so do I need to do it every year?
Answer: No, the IY(UK) requirement is every 3 years so that’s how often you need to do it.
