Academy of Yoga Learning is a specialist educational institute for yoga teacher training. Located in Melbourne, we offer a nationally registered and recognised course in yoga teaching, as well as continuing professional development for yoga teachers.
Under the guidance of co-directors and senior yoga teachers, Kaye Tribe and Jose Goossens, we are proud to have a diverse, experienced and highly-skilled faculty of teachers hailing from different lineages and traditions.
The tools, techniques and philosophy is relevant, no matter the particular circumstances, beliefs or lifestyle of the practitioner. We believe that yoga is for everybody. We want to help support, foster and empower the next generation of yoga teachers so that the country may continue to benefit from highly dedicated, skilled and experienced teachers. After all, the more high-quality teachers there are, the more lives will benefit. The benefits of yoga extend from the gross to the subtle – strengthening the body and building immunity to more intelligent, compassionate politics and community activism, more meaningful and fulfilling relationships, greater tolerance and understanding and less violence and alienation. That’s why yogis say that yoga can transform lives – because its ripple effects are unending.
Our teacher training course
We have been running this course for more than 15 years now, and have re-developed it three times during this period, to continue to meet the criteria created by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). In 2015, we re-launched this course under the auspices of Academy of Yoga Learning, registered by Yoga Australia.
Our course emphasises an individualised approach to yoga practice which emphasies safety and the personal relevance of the practice for each student. Our course is extensive, in depth and continually evolving over the last 15 years, to keep it relevant to the needs of our students.
