Enrolments for 2023 program now open!
 

Being a yoga teacher trained through The Mindful Yoga School means that you’ll be guided to embody and teach PRESENCE.

Mindful Yoga places an emphasis on incorporating mindfulness philosophy throughout the physical yoga class (asanas) and meditation. The sequencing of a Mindful Yoga class can incorporate aspects of many various yoga styles including power, vinyassa, hatha, yin and restorative. 

Mindful Yoga is about presence through both movement AND stillness, and into consciousness - of body, speech, mind and heart. Mindfulness is a way to live on purpose with kindness. Meditation helps us to cultivate meaningful qualities and create a more balanced, peaceful and inspired life.

This is soul-full living 🙌

This Mindful Yoga training program is taught part time (in-person/online contact hours are on average one weekend a month over six months, with at-home study/practice in between), and includes a powerful opening immersion retreat held on the Sunshine Coast in May 2021.

During the teacher training, you'll be supported to unveil your own true authentic self, and then encouraged to teach from this space. 

Expand Your Presence

An opportunity to immerse yourself into the healing and soul-fulfilling modality of yoga, to bring more presence and purpose into everything else that you do in life. Many undertake this program solely for their own personal development rather than to officially teach. 

Make a Difference

A yoga teacher holds space for others to come to their own deep self-realisations. This is an incredible way to have an impact on the lives of others, at a very deep level. Whether you choose to do this program for your own personal development, or you have intentions to create a thriving yoga business afterwards, you'll be contributing to a better world.

Unveil Your Truth

Learn to teach yoga with true authenticity, certainty and confidence. Be supported to take a journey of the self, through the self, to the self - a powerful place to have a real impact on the world around you, and extract clarity on your own deepest values and truths.
