Yoga Training Australia focus on living well, thinking well, breathing well, moving well, resting well and playing well as we think these are the key to vitality and feeling well.
Due to current social distancing, now more than ever we seek to provide practices that offer deep rest, connection, self inquiry, creative expression and play and you can find a range of classes including yin yoga, yin yang flow, acuyin, myoyin, roll model method and functional yoga in our small interactive group classes. You don't need to be very internet savvy - all you need is a mobile phone, laptop or computer with wifi or internet connection - we can talk you through the rest. You are free to practice indoors or out... wherever you have internet connection!
When Lee put these platforms together she sought the assistance of her now 14 year old son and not being too tech savvy to begin with (and having much gratitude for this help), will pass forward the patience and kindness he showed, when you are in need of the tech support.
Our classes are for all shapes, sizes and abilities and all classes encourage you to curiously explore the shapes and choices offered guiding you to notice any sensation, emotion, energetic state, thoughts giving you insight and empowering you to make choices and practices that nourish your body. All sequences offer consideration of functional purpose of the practices with less concern about where to place body parts and more interest in what is felt, relationship with breath and the function of the practice. This attitude and habits on the mat often spill over into life off the mat and the ability to pause and tune into breath, body sensation or check in with heartfelt values makes choices off the mat clear and yoga a lifestyle.
Our trainings and continued professional development are for those who are curious to put their personal experience aside and be very interested in the experience of others. We dive deep into anatomy looking at differing body proportions and skeletal (bone structure & posture) variations and considering how this changes location and sensation of differing yoga asana and how this may impact how we cue, offer props, modifications and alternate asana. We study physiology and relationship between movement, breath, rest and physiological body processes and mindfulness practices. We'll consider embyrology and gesture and how this can inform yoga practices noticing when we do, what ourselves and our colleagues feel. We'll use MFR tools to heighten our proprioceptive awareness whilst experiencing embodied anatomy training & asana exploration.
Even though our content is moving 100% online for now, our methods are fun, engaging and interactive which can't help but inspire curiosity, interest and retention of content and an eagerness to be of service and apply this learning with loved ones and in the practicums we offer (also online for now!) with the benefit of honest feedback (the rare feedback students often don't give) - "before the practice I felt this, after I felt that" "when you said x, I felt y" which you will receive from your small training group.
Expect to develop a vast understanding of the human body and asana, props, modifications, alternatives and language to assist you empower students to an empowered practice. You will receive a plethora of sequencing ideas and teaching skills and will be supported by our team and your online student community
If you are after a training that offers you a set script and sequence, minimal interaction or interest in the experience of the students then this is not the training for you... this training is for those thirsty to understand human experience and inspire and empower human connection and heartfelt practices.
Lee and the Yoga Training Australia team are here to support you as you learn to teach individuals, small groups, larger groups and by necessity teach others via online platforms during your training and beyond!
