Yogic Wisdom now offers Yoga Teacher Training which successfully commenced in April 2015. The Lineage of Yoga is that of the great Krishnamacharya. Together, we study how to teach yoga as a science and an art form. In addition to learning to teach, we discover creative and thoughtful ways to share new knowledge of ourselves with those around us. During the 12 months of immersion in yoga practice and study, every member of the group will experience a more profound and powerful connection to yoga.
We’ll support our passage to deeper understanding with a supportive foundation in philosophy, breath work, mantra, and energy locks. Graduates of the program will be able to successfully share this knowledge in the form of Classical/Hatha yoga classes that are both safe and inspirational.
Completing this workshop will give you a 350 hour Yoga Teacher Diploma accredited with Yoga Australia..More importantly, students who successfully complete the training will leave feeling inspired in their personal practice and capable of teaching others, whether this is their first training or their last.
The training program is offered per Calendar Year, and consists of four days per month (Thurs – Sun) excluding school terms. If you would like a copy of the course prospectus please email firstname.lastname@example.org and will arrange one to be sent to you.

Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (November 18, 1888 – February 28, 1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar. Often referred to as “the father of modern yoga”, Krishnamacharya is widely regarded as one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century and is credited with the revival of hatha yoga.
Krishnamacharya held degrees in all the six Indian philosophies. In his earlier life Krishnamacharya travelled around India giving lectures and demonstrations to promote yoga, including such feats as stopping his heartbeat. He is widely considered as the architect of vinyasa, in the sense of combining breathing with movement. Underlying all of Krishnamacharya’s teachings was the principle:
“Teach what is appropriate for an individual.”
While he is revered in other parts of the world as a yogi, in India Krishnamacharya is mainly known as a healer who drew from both ayurvedic and yogic traditions to restore health and well-being to those he treated.
Some of Krishnamacharya’s students include many of yoga’s most renowned teachers:
• T.K.V Desikachar, (his son)
• Indra Devi
• B.K.S Iyengar,(his brother-in-law )
• Pattabhi Jois
• A.G Mohan
• B.N.S. Iyengar
“Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga”.– T Krishnamacharya
“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it.”– Yogi Bhajan
