Yoga Teacher Training
Deepen your yoga & spiritual practice, bring massive and meaningful benefit to your own professional & personal life...and get accredited to teach others how they can do it too!
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 November 2020, which can also be attended virtually.
During the teacher training, you'll be supported to unveil your own true authentic self, and then encouraged to teach from this space.
