Teacher Training & Yoga Immersion - Pine Rivers Yoga - Brisbane, Australia

Teacher Training & Yoga Immersion

*** SOLD OUT ***

A yoga course for personal development, connection and with the potential to become a yoga teacher.

Study at the “retreat style” setting of the Pine Rivers Yoga studio, nestled in tranquil bushland in Cashmere. Feel at peace with your surrounds and immerse yourself into the ancient art of Yoga whilst gaining your teaching qualification. 

Your principal supervising trainer is Ruth Campbell, a Registered Senior Teacher with Yoga Australia.

Join Ruth for a journey of exploration into the 8 limbs of yoga. Enjoy the process of this ancient philosophy grounded in modern day life. Find connection with your fellow students in learning how Yoga is a tool for living well. 

This course evolves through the physical practice of yoga to the moral and ethical standards that the ancient yogis used to keep themselves "on-track".

You do not have to be 'great' at physical yoga to benefit from this training. We learn the techniques of effective breathing (pranayama) and study the fascinating material of the Yoga Sutras, the Energy Systems of the Body, Anatomy and Physiology, the benefits of Meditation, and the Methodolgy and Techniques needed to pass this information effectively on to others.

The course is scheduled to commence on 14 March and the 100 hour component will include 65 hours of contact time with 35 hours of personal study and assignment work. Dates are currently nominated for the second Saturday or Sunday of each month to the end of 2021. See the 2021 training timetable below.  Module 2 will run over a similar time frame in 2022.

If wanting a teaching certificate from this training, all students must complete both module 1 and module 2 - 200 hour teacher training and successfully teach a 60 minute class towards the end of the course.  

In addition to the mandatory contact hours, students need to complete assignments, research a special subject area and maintain a log book of all personal study hours to attain their required 200 hours. Current First Aid Certification is also a requirement before completion of the course.

The Subject Material for this training includes:
>    History and Traditions of Yoga, including Ethics and Lifestyle
>    Philosophy including Patanjali's Eight Limbs of Yoga and the Yoga Sutras
>    Principles of practice
>    Yogic Physiology including the Yogic Energy System of the Body
>    Yoga Anatomy and its relationship to Energy, Alignment and Bodily Systems
>    Pranayama (Breathing Practices)
>    Yoga techniques incl: Asana, Bandha, Mudras, Mantra, Relaxation & Meditation
>    Yoga Asana and its related Teaching Methodology and Skills, including the use of Sanskrit

Practical Teaching Application is an important part of this training, however, it is not necessarily the only reason students of yoga wish to take on some more in depth study of this vast subject. If you do not want to teach yoga but do want to increase your knowledge and understanding, this course offers plenty of insights into yoga and the study of the "Self."   

A minimum of 1 year of weekly yoga practice is recommended before considering a Yoga Teacher Training.
