Continuing Professional Development

Real Yoga follows the guidelines for CPD set by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council this recommends a range of activities that are recognised as professional development.

Bullet Attendance at seminars, workshops and lectures which enhance your knowledge and skills
Bullet Attendance at conferences or meetings which are dedicated to clinical practice or learning more about the discipline(s) you practice.
Bullet Peer supervision where you meet with other practitioners from your discipline(s) and learn from each other about best practice.
Bullet Providing taught sessions where these are occasional and represent a developmental activity for you rather than something you do on a regular basis as a tutor.
Bullet reading or writing articles or books which are published
Bullet taking part in research
Bullet receiving supervision or mentoring which enhances learning and development
Bullet work shadowing – almost any practise-related activity
Bullet first aid
Bullet marketing training.
Bullet Personal study which could include following a formal programme of study either taught or possibly distance-learning. In either case you must be able to describe what you have learned from this and how you will put it into practice in your work.
Bullet Reading such as articles in journals, books or online which provide learning you are able to put into practice in your work as a practitioner.
Bullet Research. If you are participating in a piece of research which is enhancing your understanding of your discipline and / or practice

Reflective Practice

Reflective practice is the term used to describe how you observe and record what you are learning and then put your learning into practice. We offer a peer group meeting where the hours are counted and certified for CPD.

In reflective practice we ask-

  1. What do I need to learn to improve the treatment or service I provide to my clients?
  2. How can I keep up with current trends, new techniques and good practice?
  3. Where and how could I do things better?
  4. What do I need to know more about, should things go wrong?
  5. What can I learn from observing other practitioners?
  6. If I want to specialise in a particular area of practice, what types of activities would be most useful?

The reflective practice group meets quarterly, providing a support for teachers to share their experiences, identify and fulfil their own training needs.

Next CPD Days

CPD Event: 1st September 2019

The Interface Between Healing and Yoga

for therapists and teachers - Ledbury, fee £60

with Jean Danford senior tutor for the College of Healing and Principal of Real Yoga

Exploring the common history that links these two modalities and how one supports the other in our understanding of the human state. We will practice some of the pranic healing techniques and learn to 'sense' subtle energy. Useful in self care and with clients.


We feel this is an essential part of being a therapist. There are always times when we feel stuck, or need help to process  personal issues arising from our client work, as well as gaining input and insight for our cases.   Peer  and mentor supervision is essential to keep ourselves clear and feel supported in our work.

Yoga Therapy support group, Egham
