Yoga Teacher Training
Forster Yoga Studio is excited to announce it will be running a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training led by Idit Hefer-Tamir. It is both for teachers who wish to understand deeper what restorative yoga is and how to teach it and offer it to their students but also for those who just LOVE restorative yoga and wish to take their own practice deeper.
Restorative Yoga is the yoga of deep, conscious relaxation. It is the Yoga of ‘Being’, rather than the Yoga of ‘Doing’. Using as many props as necessary, this type of practice allows your muscles, ligaments and organs to relax on a much deeper level and by doing so to restore Prana, energy, life force. As your body finds the shape of the posture and melts into place your nervous system switches to calmness and a deep inner healing mode. This type of practice is extremely important and valuable to all people who live in modern society. It’s complementary to a strong Yoga practice and is suitable for all levels and all ages.
The training will include:
Led restorative practice and then break down of each pose, how to properly and safely prop yourself and/or your student, the alignment guidelines in the different poses to keep ourselves and our student safe as they hold each pose for an extended length of time
This training includes a manual prepared specifically for this training with detailed instructions and images for the different poses.
Each student is required to bring:
Note: If you are travelling from a far or do not have these props in your possession please contact us and we will provide you with props.

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.
Katie's lineage is highly influenced by Simon Low and Jivamukti yoga founders Sharon Gannona and David Life.
Idit has studied with all of Katie's teachers and has been greatly influenced by Jasmine Tarkeshi (who returns annually to Australia to teach at Sukha Mukha) and Donna Farhi.
Infusing lineage with spirit and philosophy, students embark on a unique journey when entering the classroom.
Over the past twelve years, Idit has continued to develop and fine-tune the teacher training content, thereby giving students the most thorough and up to date groundings in the practical and theoretical aspects of yoga.
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. As a graduate yoga teacher students will have the chance to teach a community class on a rotating roster.
