What do our graduates say?

 

‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. It’s been a challenging year but has been so worthwhile! I feel I could not have learned half of the things I have on a one month intensive crash course. I am so glad I chose this course!!’  Millie

_______________

“After many years of intense asana practice, I was disillusioned and left yearning for more. Michael is guiding me through the deeper aspects that yoga has to offer. Highly qualified, he has the understanding of the psyche that is crucial to teaching yoga, as it was traditionally meant to be taught.”  Taryn

_______________

‘Michael’s ability to create such a great feeling within our group of teacher trainees was fantastic. Our bond and our exchange of ideas was an important part of our experiential learning experience.’ Layla

Yoga Australia Register Teacher Training CourseYoga Australia Registered Course

Yoga Australia has determined that the minimum training requirement to become a registered yoga teacher in Australia and be eligible for full membership of the association, requires a yoga teacher to have completed at least 350 hours of training over a minimum of 1 year. Graduates of this course meet this requirement.


What style of yoga?

Our approach to Yoga is based on the world-renowned teachings from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya (widely known as the ‘father of modern yoga’) and his son TKV Desikachar.

The focus is on integrating all aspects of yogic practice including asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudras, philosophy and psychology, and adapting all practices to the individual.  The emphasis is on applying the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga to the challenges of modern lives.

As Krishnamacharya said: “Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga.”
