When you discount all the future bond cashflows using the YTM, you end up with the current bond price. It follows that the YTM must be the value of y such that the following equation holds.
1195 = 70*[1/(1+y) + 1/(1+y)^2 + ... + 1/(1+y)^10] + 1000/(1+y)^10
You can solve this equation iteratively, e.g. using the Solver function in MS Excel, to find the approximate yield to maturity.
