Take your life to the next level. We want you to be successful.
I have spend over four decades teaching in the specialised fields of Yoga and Ayurveda in Australia, deconstructing, breaking the work down into its essential parts, reordering it and then designing it into modules with exercises to teach the most important elements in the right order, We have used our years of experience in education, training and transformation to design the material, structure it with great care and detail, and deliver remarkable tools, techniques and insights that make our courses the best available. They are content rich and provide you with more than a superficial introduction to this transformative work. Our text books and audio recordings are perfect supplements to the core trainings of the courses. These are not 'bonuses' in the marketing sense, they are authentic optimisations which are awesome, and offer a robust training if you beleive that you still ahve much to learn, practice, grow and teach. I hope you can join us on this life changing journey.
We wish you all success in your studies, your interest in full self actualising and employing Health Institute Australia’s courses as a tool to grow, develop and reach your full potential. With these aims you must surely succeed in your aspirations to make a difference in your own and other people’s lives.
Our track record is impeccable. Health Institute Australasia welcomes you to join us in celebrating and deepening the commitment to a renewal of humanity, health and wellbeing. Let us use this unique opportunity to begin a great and momentous turning.
