Yoga Teacher Training, Sydney
The trendiness of popular yoga will have us believe that Yoga is just a vehicle for exercise. However, Yoga is so much more. Yoga is an ancient science that will radically transform your life and thought processes to readily manifest health, abundance and happiness into your life. It is a powerful, transformational practice and an ideal way of self-cultivation that leads to physical and mental health and healing, spiritual and moral development, ethical behaviour and ultimately better society.
Shanti Yoga has evolved from a traditional lineage of authentic, classical yoga through the mind of a deeply experienced Yogi with 40+ years of experience of teaching in the West.
It integrates and incorporates the knowledge, philosophies and practices of traditional yoga, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras with contemporary developments in yoga that are universal and of direct relevance to the current stage of evolution in our western society.
Shanti Yoga teacher training is based on personal growth, helping others, shedding the ego and turning negativity into positive thinking and actions, to awaken the world. When you study to be a Yoga Teacher at Health Institute Australia, your course will involve much more than just downward dog, handstands or sun salutations, and also much more than just textbook learning. You will be taught the history of Yoga, along with its philosophy, and psychology and learn a wide range of practices and skills to gain the ideal preparation for your future.
All your course materials are provided, and you will have the bonus of experiencing yoga life at spiritual retreats. There is no enticement to spend money on additional requirements in the form of packages, workshops, seminars, and so on, for deepening your knowledge and practice.
Competition is not factored in, nor encouraged. The energy at Health Institute Australia is uplifting and infectious. Over the years, we have seen thousands of lives touched, changed, transformed and saved by the revolutionary, creative experimenting that has had people falling in love with their yoga again, or for the first time, whilst never stop their exploring.
Conducted over 52 weeks, comprising an academic year of 40 weeks duration, with breaks.
This 600 hour, foundational year will inspire you with a creative engagement with Yoga from the ground up. Even if you have absolutely no past experience of yoga, you are able to apply.
