The Training​

 

Now in its sixteenth year with graduates teaching all over the world, Sukha Mukha Yoga has one of the most well regarded and comprehensive Yoga Teacher Training courses in Australia. The course was originally developed by Katie Rose and is now run by Sukha Mukha’s founder and director of teacher training, Idit Hefer Tamir.

 

Throughout the years, Idit and Katie have maintained their close working relationship and support a beautiful connection to the traditional aspects of yoga and its various lineages.​

The training is designed to comprehensively explore the philosophy and physiology of yoga as well as the practical aspects of teaching asana, pranayama and meditation. The course is deliberately eclectic in nature providing students with a broad understanding of the many diverse schools and aspects of yoga practice. Students from all yogic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

 

“One of our strengths is that our course is suitable both for those who know they want to teach at the end of the course and for those who simply want to dive deeper into the yogic teaching and are not yet sure if they wish to teach or not.” Idit 

 

By the end of the course teacher training students will be fully prepared to stand in front of their own class of students and know how to deliver a class well. Students will also be introduced to the many facets of yoga and thereby given the opportunity to understand what it is they are most drawn to and what they would want to learn further and more deeply.

 

Sukha Mukha’s Yoga Teacher Training has over 250 hours of training allowing for greater depth of knowledge and practical application for students to feel confident to take the next steps towards becoming an inspiring teacher.

 

Experience the benefits of studying in a small group in our beautiful Forster Yoga Studio where trainees have the opportunity to build community and are given individual attention – honouring the time old tradition of yoga teacher training.
