Yoga is the ultimate science of human transformation. The Health Institute Australia's Yoga Teacher Training program is the culmination of four decades of Shanti Gowans' experience in teaching yoga to monastic and lay students, and training yoga teachers. It provides a comprehensive, fully integrated curriculum, in three parts, that far surpasses the standards set by the industry, and produces exceptional teachers who are recognised as gurus in their field of influence. You too can reap the rewards of this education in your personal life, with your work, for economic benefit and in local and international arenas.
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 your 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 Shanti Yoga's 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.
Each part is conducted over 52 weeks, comprising an academic year of 40 weeks duration, with breaks.

On the other hand, many people who "practice" yoga, do so mindlessly, and lack these abilities, and while they still have the same yearnings and desires as everyone else, yet they stay stuck and unfulfilled. They never make their dreams come true. Their lives are an endless series of “what if” questions they ask themselves. They feel powerless in their lives, and live forever at the whims of others which can include nasty bosses, credit card companies, or others trying to hold them back. They never discover the secret to incredible power that is hidden within them. But harnessing this power can be more than just a dream or fantasy. You are already on your way to achieving your potential.

Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teacher Training 10555NAT
The Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching and Leadership is a outstanding 600 hour course, which is the culmination of an extensive 1800 hour yoga teacher training program. It is designed to provide an intensive, developmental experience with wonderful resources that enables high potential yoga leaders, through robust and intensive engagement and participation in a mentored and peer-oriented leadership development experience, deepen your understanding and knowledge base, and expand your services to your students and in the community.
It will be conducted over a 2 year period, with space to assimilate the teachings and to accommodate those of you who live interstate.
The Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching and Leadership Program is grounded in principles of authentic leadership and values-based leadership. It is enriched by a framework that focuses on interpersonal and behavioural dynamics central to the successful management and leadership of others. (The program does not deal with the technical or administrative aspects of management). The program adopts a blended learning methodology that is based on proven principles of adult learning (combining mentor and peer knowledge - sharing, experimental exercises, practical workplace application, self-analysis and reflection).
Throughout the program, learnings are related back to the day-to-day realities and challenges of each participant. This process is enhanced through participant-generated discussions that unlock the existing skills and experience within the group. The coaching and peer mentoring process within a program of co-participants, is fundamental to the program and greatly enhances the learning process. During the program, participants engage deeply with their fellow cohorts. Over the 24 month duration, the group develops into an invaluable peer network.
The Advanced Leadership Program is delivered in a blend of face-to-face, ‘real time’, interactive tutorial-workshops which enables a physical connection and networking opportunities, and a gift of four (4) residential (accommodation and meals included) silent meditation weekends at Nirvana Wellness retreat. These allow participants the space to work through their own processes in a way that is both non-judgemental and accepting.
