“I loved this course! I loved the range and depth and feel it has opened a door to lifelong learning”



“I had the most amazing year. I feel I have learnt so much. All the teachers have been amazing”



“Dear Michael,
I wanted to thank you for inviting me to attend your 3-day residential retreat this year even though I am enrolled in another teacher training at another school.

For 3 days in a row, I was able to observe each of your students teach in turn a one-hour class and I was amazed at the quality of their teachings. They have this confidence that usually long-time teachers excel in, more rarely students. They were all teaching beautifully allowing their own personality and style shine through.

My observing them brought me a whole new understanding of what teaching is and can be. What struck me the most was the clarity of their communication and speech. Their explanations were simple, easy to comprehend and to follow.

I felt also very lucky to attend classes taught by your advanced diploma students and that indeed, totally blew me away! Their classes were certainly among the best I have witnessed in my yoga life which started back in 1996.

I was very impressed too by the cohesion among the whole group of students supporting each other at all times. They all were so wonderfully kind towards me, the “outsider”. I felt immediately warmly welcomed. I am so grateful to all of them.

And so very grateful to you Michael. Your generosity shines throughout your teachings and consequently throughout your students’ teachings as well. Even though I am moving to Darwin in the next few weeks, I am looking forward to continuing my yoga studies with you in the future.

Forever grateful,”

“For me the highlight was the teaching of the Yoga Sutras and the philosophical approach to yoga as well as how the methodology to design a yoga practice is so carefully addressed by the training”

“The Yoga Institute’s emphasis on Yoga Sutras is un-matched, and the sheer comprehensiveness of the course and the exceptional standard of teaching gives us a solid foundation to work with and the confidence to share our knowledge with potential students”

“Doing this course is one of the best decisions I’ve made. It opened up a greater depth in my practice and has given me a much better understanding of some of the more subtle aspects of Yoga. It was a challenging and inspiring year and an incredible time of personal growth for me.”



“Michael’s ability to create such a “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”

“I am very grateful to Michael for being such a knowledgeable, caring, and inspiring teacher and mentor”



“I can’t imagine being ready to teach without at least the entire course content I studied at The Yoga Institute”

“Hi Michael,

Good to hear from you. I wanted to send you a line after the retreat to say just how much I enjoyed it.
I was flying on a high for ages afterwards – in fact I was trying to put my finger on the feeling I had, and then I realised that it was that crazy feeling of being in love…

– in love with yoga!”
