200 hours’ Foundation Yoga Diploma and 300 hours’ Advanced Yoga Diploma for a total of 500 hours
Since we strongly believe that it takes some time and commitment to mature into a yoga teacher, we do not offer “fast-track” training: the basic 200 hours’ certificate takes 8 months to complete, and the additional 300 hours leading to the 500 hours’ diploma takes another 10 months. This, we believe, is the strict minimum to allow for growth and evolution.
Teacher Training Courses in 2022 in Perth, Australia:
Please bear with me as I am the process of restructuring these two YTT programs to fit with the current standards of Yoga Australia. My aim is for the next intake to begin in February 2022. I will continue to offer the same high standards of Yoga Education I offered in Singapore for 17 years, and look forward to serving the Perth Yoga community. In the meantime, please read the brochure from previous training batches to get an idea of its depth and breadth. The content itself will barely change… merely the format.
These courses are structured so that each time you take a new step, it is followed by a period of consolidation. Besides postures and their modifications, we dive into topics as varied as the practical philosophy of the Yoga-Sūtra, technical aspects of course planning, teaching methodology, several applied prānāyāma techniques, anatomy and physiology in the context of yoga, the theory and practice of meditation, class observation, supervised teaching, and more. Of course, mentoring and personal practice are a cornerstone of this growing process.
We also offer post-graduate workshops for teachers who wish to continue their studies. These courses are registered with the Yoga Alliance as Continuing Education Units. In future, such programs will be registered with Yoga Australia. Here are a few examples of courses we taught in the past:
The Haṭha-Yoga-Pradīpikā: study of chapters I, II and III (verse by verse)
Yoga-Sūtra: antar-aṅga-sādhana: the internal practice of meditation explained in chapters I and III (sūtra by sūtra)
The Complete Yogi: study of chapter IV of Patañjali’s Yoga-Sūtra
The Thread of Yoga: Yoga-Sūtra, thematic study of chapters I and II
The Art of Breathing: introduction to prāṇāyāma
In or Out? The fifth limb of yoga
Chakras and the subtle anatomy of yoga
