200hr Teacher Training
The 200-hour program delivers holistic unhurried learning across the whole system of yoga. Trainees will graduate with a true embodied knowledge of yoga, a high practical skill level, and ongoing meaningful mentoring relationships with Sarcha and other senior trainers as they embark upon their teaching careers. Whilst, the training offers a strong grounding for aspiring teachers, the training is also suitable for students that seek to deepen their own practice, and undertake focused studies into anatomy and yoga philosophy, without the intention of teaching.
We have tried to strike a balance between convenience and meaningfulness in the delivery of our 200hr Training. Perhaps, and proudly so, offering training that is a little ‘old fashioned’, in the sense most senior trainers themselves were originally trained over longer periods of time than what is offered in most trainings today. In designing the delivery of the training, we seek to give trainees the opportunity to learn, assimilate and integrate the content of the program by delivering some parts of the program in weekly lectures across generous timeframes, and other parts of the program are delivered using an intensive workshop format, over a few weeks.
Group numbers for the 200hr program is strictly limited to ensure quality of delivery and that one-to-one attention can be amply provided to trainees. In addition, the trainee is supported to develop and mature in their own practice under the guidance of a senior teacher over time. We consider this an important factor in training great teachers.
The 200hr Teacher Training program is fully recognised and registered with Yoga Australia and is 12 months in duration. The 200hr program is a pathway for continued education and prerequisite for joining our 6 month 150hr Mentorship Program that follows.
Our 150hr Mentoring Program for Yoga Teachers
This program is designed for yoga teachers who are seeking more personal training and one-to-one mentoring from Sarcha and her highly experienced teaching faculty to build on skills gained in foundational yoga teacher training. Our mentoring program is strictly limited to 8 people for each intake to ensure our participating teachers have an immersive and meaningful learning journey, and graduate with a intellectually integrated and embodied knowledge of yoga, that can be applied in both teaching and practice.
This program has five important areas of focus.
Teaching and responding to the individual person.
Trainees will work with real students alongside the senior trainer in classes that are not ‘led’, but comprised of individual practice and teaching, in a group setting. Therefore, the trainee will have the opportunity to ask questions, practice teaching and adjusting under the direct guidance of the senior teacher on various bodies of varying age and ability. The teaching is client catered, progressing and modifying the practice in the best interests of the client’s health and wellbeing. The purpose of this section is to promote learning through observation and direct instruction from the senior teacher as she works with real students. The trainee will be guided, observed and encouraged to provide teaching and adjustments to the senior teacher’s students within the range and scope of their skills and confidence.
Skilful and intelligent sequencing.
Lean to teach our signature classes at Yogahub. Working with our team of skilful and senior teachers, we will teach you sequences for our most popular yoga classes, and support you in developing your own class plans. After this module you’ll be encouraged to fill in teach for staff teachers at Yogahub.
Deeper studies into the most important spiritual texts of yoga.
This part of the program focuses on taking you deeper into Sanskrit chanting, Patanjali’s Sutras and Vedanta Studies. This is important because if a client asks a question about a philosophical/spiritual aspect of yoga, a competent yoga teacher will be able to answer it. In addition, yoga philosophy is deeply rich with wisdom that we can draw from to grow spiritually in the right direction. These ancient teachings are still highly relevant for making sense of the modern world today. Therefore, study yoga philosophy will also help you live a great life!
This section offers trainees two specialled therapeutic modules to inform your teaching. Trauma in the Context of Yoga & Pain Science and Application to Yoga.
A requirement of the program is to devote some time to progressing in your own practice under the guidance of a advanced practitioner / senior teacher than yourself. There is no better person to learn from that one that has already walked the path before you.
The Yogahub 150hr Teacher Training program is fully recognised and registered with Yoga Australia and is 6 months in duration.
