Classical Hatha Yoga Teacher Training: what to expect

This is a ‘non-denominational’ yoga course, training you in the broad tradition of Classical Hatha Yoga. You will explore elements of several popular styles of asana practice without favouring any one style as you are guided to develop your own individual style.

Our core values emphasize safety and an individualized approach over dogma, and we encourage you to explore your own practice and experience of yoga.

Fasten your seat-belt and get ready to transform your yoga and your life!

Personalized supervision

Our course is for a minimum of 420 hours over a 12-month period. This includes individual sessions and a mentoring program to assist in real classes. We find this an ideal format to help integrate your yoga skills and principles into real, daily life – on the mat, at work and at home! (Like Yoga Australia we do not endorse short-term or ‘deep-immersion’ training courses and only offer 12-month part-time options to allow time for this process to occur.)

Our 12 month Hatha Yoga Teacher-Training Course will deliver you four immediate outcomes:

  • Intensify and clarify your personal yoga practice
  • Gain a recognized national qualification
  • Qualify to get indemnity insurance
  • Gain real yoga teaching experience and be ready to teach.

Our teaching faculty are national leaders in yoga teaching standards, with many years' experience. Our course exceeds all criteria required for recognition by "Yoga Australia".
