Doing further yoga teacher training is a big step ~ How do you know this course is right for you?
Have you completed your 200hr yoga teaching qualification and are now feeling the pull? You know, the gentle voice deep inside that is always striving to grow, learn and transform?
A 200hr yoga teacher training is a great starting point. It will give you the foundational knowledge to teach but many 200hr trained teachers feel like they want to learn more.
You probably know from your own experience that being a yoga teacher isn’t just about teaching yoga postures. It’s about developing the skills and confidence to encourage and motivate your students to know themselves better. This requires a deep understanding of yoga’s philosophies, tools and techniques based on personal experience, clever and creative sequencing, knowledge of the functions of individual postures, and the confidence to impart all of this onto your students with joy and grace.

Our approach to Yoga is based on the world-renowned teachings from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya (often described 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.”
To gain certification and registration as a Level 1 Member of Yoga Australia, a variety of assessments are required. These include demonstration of knowledge, competencies and skills relevant to each course unit; commitment to regular personal Yoga practice; and competence in skills required as a Yoga Teacher.
