Yoga Curriculum Design and Mapping

YTTCW (Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum Worldwide) offers yoga curriculum design and mapping to assist yoga teacher training providers anywhere in the world, to develop a highly comprehensive program for aspiring yoga teachers.

Curriculum design is a process involving visioning, developing learning outcomes. Curriculum mapping provides a visualization of the elements of a curriculum and how they are related. It involves collecting, recording, and organizing data about curriculum structure, outcomes, methods, and assessments. The completed curriculum map then becomes a tool that helps yoga training providers to keep track of what has been taught and plan what will be taught.

Aimed at individuals who want to pursue a professional career in the yoga industry, at the end of this yoga teaching qualification, yoga training providers will be able to issue to their graduates a YTTCW Award Certificate Achievement.

What are the aims of Yoga curriculum Design and Mapping and who is it for?

  1. The aim is to help the course developer to plan and conduct the course.

  2. YTTCW offers a comprehensive manual that can be purchase by yoga training providers which include information on the main steps and stages in sequence of designing a yoga training course all the way to evaluation for feedback into further development.

  3. The design and development process of training material is anything but linear. It’s very iterative, it’s a challenge and a difficult task. Designing a yoga training course is like mapping out a road trip or creating a journey.

  4. A training design is basically an outline of all the ”what, where, who, when and how” details of the training for use by providers

  5. Learning objectives are central to designing a training course. They must reflect the needs assessment results and work in harmony with training methods and design. A learning outcome is a statement of what a learner is expected to know, understand, or be able to do as a result of a learning process

Why Map a curriculum? What are the benefits for Yoga Training Providers?

  • Curriculum mapping has many benefits for students, individual teaching faculty members, for Yoga Schools as a whole.

  • Program mapping shows training providers how the learning strategies embodied in individual courses work together to produce student learning outcomes, and how courses work together to build learning outcomes for an entire program. A complete program map clearly shows gaps or overlaps in the development, practice and assessment of the broader capabilities, attributes and discipline requirements.

  • By analysing a program map, you can see whether the program currently integrates all its specified attributes and, if so, how effectively it does this. Subsequently, you might revise course and program outlines to include clear statements of the graduate attributes they develop.

  • Identifies program strengths

  • Helps orient new yoga instructors to course and program requirements, and how their courses fit into programs

  • Engages faculty in collegial dialogue about learning and curriculum and in reflection on course outcomes, assessment strategies, and expected levels of student achievement

  • Enables identification of where students have opportunities to engage in yoga practices

  • Supports demonstration of alignment with accreditation standards

What does curriculum mapping tell you?

  • When completed, program curriculum maps are very helpful for identifying gaps, unintended redundancies and studies misalignments that might cause trouble-spots where students may struggle with the current program structure.

  • It also identifies strengths in the program and visually shows how courses fit together and flow between years of progression.

For yoga students

  • Clarifies what they are learning, and how the courses they are taking fit into the “big picture”

  • Helps them communicate achievements to employers

  • Communicates what knowledge, skills and attributes graduates will possess

  • Provides a visual of what is being taught, when it is being taught, and how it is being assessed

  • Improves their engagement
