Yoga Worksheets Help Page

Dear student,

when filling in your Yoga Worksheets please ensure you answer the following questions using the guidelines so to avoid a remarking fee (as stated in your terms and agreements). We appreciate the language of the worksheets can be read in different ways therefore we have added this guide to help everyone pass first time.

The Learner Assessment Record (LAR) is given out on the face to face training day 1 only.

Reference to text

The original worksheets were written by the British Wheel of Yoga which reflects a Level 3 award (equivalent to A Level) and therefore referencing is required.

Referencing at this level would be to prove you have read around the subject and can give back up to the statements you make in an answer. These references need to be authorities in Yoga and therefore 'reference to text' here usually means ancient text quotes such as from the Bhagavad Gita or The Upanishads, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali etc. It could also be a famous modern day swami or yoga guru such as Swami Sivananda or BKS Iyengar.

The Yoga Professionals manual has these references to ancient text within it so every answer you need is in the manual you receive on your practical training. You may, if you wish quote from your own book collection.

Example of giving reference to text in the worksheets:

Learner Assessment Record

Page 46 -

Understanding Bandhas,

Question 2 (give reference to text to support your answer in question 1, Describe what are Bandhas?)


Open your Yoga Professionals Manual to Chapter 22, page 285 for reference to text regarding Bandhas

Where it asks to give reference to text for Bandhas simply quote the text from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika seen right or on the next pages.

Continue with this throughout the worksheets finding the answers in the manual relevant to the subject.

Worksheet D - Dealing with common conditions encountered in a yoga class


Answer this question from your Yoga Professionals manual Chapter 20 - Dealing with common conditions in a yoga class, pages 253-274 by writing about each condition in detail rewriting the information in your own words where possible. You are required to list each condition individually and give details along with any contraindicated yoga postures highlighted.
