Diploma of Satyananda Yoga Training (91462 NSW)
The Diploma of Satyananda Yoga Training has been developed from the courses offered at Bihar Yoga Bharati, India. It is unique in yoga teacher training in Australia in offering a nationally recognized qualification combined with the opportunity for intensive personal yoga practice within a traditional ashram environment.
