FAQs

Do I have to be a yoga teacher to attend?
This training is designed for yoga teachers who want to expand their toolkit so they can teach in diverse settings. While you do not need to be a yoga teacher to attend, you should have a strong interest in the physical, mental and emotional beneifts of yoga, an interest in community service, and a regular practice. This training is for professional development only. This training is not designed for anyone in the process of healing their own trauma, or currently experiencing any major physical, mental or emotional ailments.

How will the training be delivered?
The training will be delivered through:

  • Physical practice
  • Breathing exercises & meditation
  • Sample scenarios and group problem-solving
  • Short lecture-style sessions with Q & A
  • Break-out small group sessions
  • Role playing and skills practice
  • Student teaching and feedback opportunities

Will I be provided with ready-made sequences to teach the community?
Yogahood Australia does not promote a single methodology or style for bringing yoga to the wider community and does not provide you with ready-made sequences or a list of postures. Instead, this training encourages you to explore how to teach with what you already know in an authentic way so you can make yoga as accessible and inclusive for all.
