In addition to the considerable training materials and support included within the course, trainees have the option for private online training with a BoxingYoga™ Head Coach.

Private online training is useful if you find yourself stuck on any aspect of your training, if you require help in preparation for your assessment or simply to reaffirm your knowledge and skills.
You can ask questions about training, have your postures and transitions reviewed and even have technique demonstrated to you. You may also use the sessions to get advice on marketing, promotion and business development.

Wherever you are in the world, a real life BoxingYoga™ Head Coach is available for a low hourly rate to provide advice and support in most major world languages.


In order to maintain the highest standards of quality and safety, the final stage of the course is to successfully complete and pass an online written exam and video assessment.

The answers to the exam are contained within the training materials and the criteria for the assessment are clearly explained from the beginning.

There is no time limit for sitting the online exam and sending your video assessment. Both are reviewed free of charge by an official BoxingYoga™ Assessor.

Whether your assessment result, you will be provided with detailed feedback, which can be extremely useful, especially if you wish to submit another assessment video.

Once qualified, you will receive your certificate of qualification and be officially licensed to teach BoxingYoga™.


The BoxingYoga™ Teacher Training course is fully endorsed by the Registrar of Exercise Professionals (REPs).

REPs is the largest independent public register for the Health and Fitness Industry in the UK.

Their endorsement of BoxingYoga™ Teacher Training demonstrates the quality of the course and, once qualified, your recognition as a professional BoxingYoga™ Coach of the highest standard.

If you have a Yoga Level 3 qualification you will also receive 16 CPD points.


Once qualified you have the opportunity to join the BoxingYoga™ Coaches Association (BYCA) - an extensive online and Head Office support system to you help get the most from your BoxingYoga™ practice or business.

Whether its world-class promotional support, exclusive bonus training videos, priority teaching opportunities or the chance to progress to BoxingYoga™ Head Coach and Country Ambassador, membership to the BYCA is the way to go.

BoxingYoga™ on Business Insider

"Following the success of BoxingYoga in pre-season at our Training Academy, we set-up regular post-match BoxingYoga recovery sessions for our First Team. The sessions have proved extremely beneficial and it's no coincidence the squad are recovering faster from injury and showing improvement on post-match fatigue. We couldn't be happier with the effect BoxingYoga is having on the players and their ability to consistently perform at the highest level. I strongly recommend BoxingYoga to everyone."

- Philip Morrow, Performance Director, Saracens Rugby Club
