200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

About This Event

Namaste and welcome to a life enhancing 3 week process. This course is suitable for those looking to transition from student to teacher, or simply immerse into the world of yoga practices and understanding. We see learning as a process of Experiencing, Embodying, and Sharing.  And that is exactly what we will do together on this immersion. We will explore Asana, Breath and Focused Awareness to build better understanding and control of our thoughts, habits and movement.  We will explore the simple bliss of single focused attention (Meditation). There will also be study of the Chakras and Koshas, 2 useful maps of understanding the multiple layers of gross to subtle energies that affect us in any moment. Ultimately we will connect a little deeper to our true selves and to the Consciousness that underlies and connects all things.

 As course leaders we are here to:

Rating : 10/10

I had a truly exceptional time during my yoga teacher training with ‘Asia Pacific Yoga’.

Surrounded by the lush, green landscape of Sideman it was a beautiful place to ponder and reflect on our learning throughout the course. The location certainly assisted in creating a calm and balanced atmosphere. Furthermore, the staff were very welcoming, helpful and always greeted us with warming smiles. Also, the food was healthy and plentiful.

I’m very grateful for Steve Hall for providing such an unforgettable Teacher training experience. His continual guidance, support and passion for yoga is inspiring and he made sure everyone had a memorable time. His teaching is filled with humour, relaxed and encouraging. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience which he effortlessly shared with us at every opportunity throughout the course both in and out of class. The other teachers on the course were also very experienced and shared their knowledge with passion.

Geri’s calm and nurturing approach to teaching was welcomed by everyone. Her demonstrations and insight into yin and restorative yoga were wonderful.

Malcolm joined us for two days to assist with teachings of anatomy. His passionate approach and knowledge of the how the body works in connection with the mind is exceptional.

A definite highlight of this course are the people you share the experience with. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the friendships I developed. I was surrounded by a supportive and caring family of fellow yogis. We danced, we sang, we laughed, we cried, we hugged and we shared. I was fortunate to be surrounded by such compassionate, inspiring and warm hearted people. Friends for life.

I was apprehensive and hesitant about joining this YTT and I’m grateful for my wife for encouraging me to join her on this course. I’m leaving Bali with a greater knowledge of yoga, personal growth, friendship and confidence in sharing all I’ve learned during this unforgettable adventure.
