Each course will differ to bring you the best of our Byron Bay teachers, but you can view a sample schedule below.

SAMPLE SCHEDULE

WHAT STYLE OF YOGA IS TAUGHT ON YOUR 200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

The Yoga we teach on our courses is an authentic 'vini' flow - which connects Hatha Yoga postures in short flowing Vinyasa sequences. The Yoga taught draws from the ancient teachings of the Sri T Krishnamacharya lineage - a therapeutic and holistic approach to teaching the goal of which is to create healing and well-being in mind, body, and breath. This builds a strong and authentic foundation for your teaching and practice, ensuring what you teach is safe, effective, and from a legitimate source. We teach you how to deepen your own practice and give you the skills and knowledge to be able to teach all levels of Yoga with confidence and understanding.

WILL I BE ABLE TO TEACH VINYASA YOGA?

Yes, vinyasa ('flow') yoga joins traditional hatha yoga postures (Adho Mukha Shvanasana/ Downward Facing Dog, Virabhadrasana/ Warrior etc) together in a series of flowing sequences. We teach you how to correctly teach each individual posture and then move on to sequencing these in a series of flowing sequences, which can be modified to suit all students and combined to create full vinyasa classes. You will have plenty of opportunities to practice teaching and gain confidence as a yoga teacher.

DOES THE ONLINE PORTION OF THE YTT NEED TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE I JOIN YOU IN BYRON BAY?

No, the online portion of the course does not need to be completed before your time in Byron Bay. You can complete the online portion of the course before OR after you join us in Byron Bay. Once you sign up, you will be able to access the online modules to begin your studies straight away if you wish. You have the option of completing these before you join us in person on the two-week immersion retreat to receive a Yoga Alliance certified RYT-200 Qualification.

DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS FOR THE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?

Yes, we offer three payment options so everyone can afford to join our yoga course. Hold your place on the yoga course with a $299 AUD deposit with the final payment due 10 Days before your Byron Bay course begins, pay in full - or choose our payment plan in 5 x monthly instalments.

WHAT IF I CANNOT ATTEND THE COURSE?

If you are unable to attend our Byron Bay course for any reason - we offer you our risk-free guarantee. We will refund all payments, minus your non-refundable $299 AUD course deposit which can be applied to any other course (online or in-person) at a later date.

HOW DOES THE ONLINE PORTION WORK?

You will gain access to our online portal straight away and work through the online yoga classes at the pace that suits you. Don't have the time to complete the modules before you join us in person? Not a problem! You can complete the online aspect either before OR after your time with us in person. Our aspiring teachers also have bonus access to the LIVE online zoom classes to consolidate their knowledge online - completely optional but a great way to add to your learning experience!

I HAVE BEEN INJURED, CAN I JOIN THE COURSE?

Yes, at Santosha we passionately believe Yoga is for all bodies! You do not need to have a super flexible or injury free body to join us on the course - or to be a yoga teacher. We offer modifications or alternates for all postures when needed, as all teachers should be able to do. We find that teachers with injuries or limited flexibility /mobility often have an increased awareness of student's limitations and keeping them safe. So instead of thinking of your injuries as a hindrance to teaching or participating in the course, realise that they can be an asset to your awareness and understanding.

I FEEL TO SCARED TO TEACH! CAN I STILL JOIN YOU?

Yes, of course! Rest assured many of our students come into the course feeling fear around public speaking or just doing something new. We completely understand, which is why we take such care to create a supportive and accepting space like no other you will have ever experienced. We work with you where you are at, to help you gain the confidence and skills to be ready to share what you have learned - if that is your goal. It is perfectly normal to feel nerves around stepping into something new and unknown and we work to help you overcome the most common blockages in a way that best suits YOUR individual nature and strengths.

HOW LONG DOES THE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING TAKE?

For those who wish to study full-time you can complete the online 200 Hour yoga teacher training part of the training in 14 days of in-depth study. For those that wish to self-pace due to family, work and other commitments take as long as you need to complete the course to suit your situation. The in-person training runs over 14 amazing days.

WHAT DO I NEED TO JOIN YOU?

We supply all your training materials; the only additional reading for the yoga course is 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle. This is readily available in audiobook, book or e-book for kindle. For the online yoga teacher training aspect, you will need a computer, phone or tablet with internet access to access the course materials in our online portal.

DO WE GET TIME OFF TO ENJOY THE BEACH AND BEAUTIFUL BYRON?

There will be plenty of free time for you to relax, surf, swim and explore! Byron Bay is known for its yoga Australia wide, and is loved by yogis and surfers alike for its incredible beaches, lively community, eclectic vibes, cafes and incredible options for wellness and relaxation. Hike and enjoy waterfalls, nature and lush green scenery in the hinterlands, visit an organic farm or just relax on the sands of the many incredible beaches. This popular area in NSW is a delight to experience!
