Tabatha, Brisbane Yoga Teacher Training

I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the Yoga Teacher Training course. It has been a truly life changing experience. Under your guidance I have been able to establish a practice that has allowed me to access myself and my personal power in a way I'd always searched for.

The space that you hold and the beautiful community that was built during the course is a real credit to you both. There is so much of your love and passion poured into this course.

Thank you both so much. It was a real pleasure to learn from you both. I look forward to doing further trainings with you in the future and hopefully working together one day.

Belinda, Brisbane Yoga Teacher Training

I've recently completed a level 1 yoga teacher training with Being Yoga in Brisbane. I couldn't have been more impressed by the quality, and depth of information that Vanessa and Michael delivered. They also walk the talk which is very refreshing. I particularly found the 4 day retreat of great benefit, to really immerse myself in the teachings.

If you're looking for an entry level teacher training, I would definitely recommend Being Yoga. I can't wait to attend their level two workshops!

In this training you will be taken through four key modules of learning:

  • Align

    The Align module brings everything back to basics. Learn how to safely align over 70 yoga postures with our Central Alignment Technique. This template, we developed, makes understanding and teaching alignment simple and effortless. Learn how to adapt yoga poses to the individual creating a dynamic evolution rather than being stuck in a model of what yoga ‘should’ look like. This module also includes Anatomy and Physiology along with History and underlying philosophies of yoga.

  • Enhance

    The enhance module is where everything starts to flow. You learn how to align your practice with the breath, how to move, feel into and experience yoga from an entirely new perspective. This module is taught on retreat where there is a chance to deepen your yoga practice, step away from the world and dive a little deeper within. Pranayama, mantra and deeper philosophies are also explored in this module.

  • Observe

    During the observe module you will fall in love with meditation and develop an inner life practice that will become one of the great jewels of your yoga training journey. You will learn and practice a number of simple yet powerful methods of meditation. This module is about looking into yourself with a deepening sense of awareness and clarity.

  • Serve

    The first three modules are about establishing yourself in yoga and developing a practice for life. Having spent this much time working on yourself, teaching now starts to become effortless and heartfelt. Intensive and focussed training is provided on all elements of teaching, from correct alignment, giving adjustments, appropriate language, sequencing, planning a class and how to teach to specialist groups such as beginners and pregnancy.

Meet Your Trainers

Hi, our names are Michael Daly and Vanessa Rudge. We are the founders of Being Yoga and the creators of this 200 hr Brisbane Yoga Teacher Training course. We’ve been teaching yoga, managing busy studios, running retreats and facilitating our Level 1 and 2 yoga courses for over 20 years.

We’ve built this yoga teacher training course in Brisbane on one core principle – Worlds Best Practice…

We are not a ‘style of yoga’ nor do we belong to any guru or tradition. Our aim has been to seek out, study and practice what we believe is the best yoga, meditation, anatomy, personal development and philosophy on the planet today. We take the best from the old and the new and distil this into a really potent yet really fun style of yoga training that is highly relevant for today’s modern world. We’d love to share this path with you.

I feel very blessed to be studying under your guidance. Your wisdom and knowledge is truly amazing and you have a wonderful way with words. You truly are a gifted teacher. Thank you for taking me to my extreme best and then leaving me feeling, 'hey I can do better than that'! I feel I have grown so much and I have only scratched the surface.
