This course and certification focuses on the types of emergency which a yoga teacher may come across in an everyday class – including fainting, epilepsy, asthma and heart conditions.  It will also cover all aspects of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and basic first aid.

His passion continues his journey in Indonesia, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions, to facilitate International First Aid Training courses and educate others on correct CPR and First Aid knowledge and skills.  He is excited to be able to present his graduates with this globally-recognised qualification, suitable for all yoga teachers, and any other teacher, parent or professional who wishes to benefit from life-saving skills.

AHA International First Aid

Suitable for any profession, including the global requirements for all professional yoga and meditation teachers
All students receive a course completion card that is valid for 2 years.

Our First Aid training is an instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency, until emergency medical services arrive. 

We also invite those who require to obtain a course completion card for their job, regulatory (for example OSHA), or other requirements.

Our courses may also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting (such as parents or school teachers). 

Other skills also covered in this course include first aid; choking relief in adults, children, and infants; and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children, and infants.

This course teaches skills with the AHA’s research-proven 'practice-while-watching' technique, which allows our instructor to observe each student, provide feedback, and guide the student's learning of skills.
