Yoga Teacher Training Programme

200 hour & 300 hour level certificates

Train to become a yoga teacher under the tutelage of the renowned yoga teacher, Wayne Everson. This Yoga Teacher Training Programme offers 200-Hour and 300-Hour courses designed around a rigorous ongoing yoga practice programme at OUSA. This includes body practice (hatha-yoga), meditation and a series of theory-based sessions designed to deepen and enhance your yoga knowledge and experience.

Although this is a rigorous training programme, the study options for these courses are designed to be flexible for students. This programme is open to all. You can complete the theory programme while you attend yoga classes at OUSA. The certificates are designed to be completed over eighteen months to three years depending on which course you choose (200 or 300 hours). Upon completion of all theory components and requirements, in addition to yoga practice hours, a Yoga Teaching Certificate will be awarded. There is an expectation that you will teach/ lead some classes prior to the awarding of the certificate.

 

Your training will cover correct alignment and safe yoga practice, the art of yoga teaching, cautions and ethics of teaching and practice, anatomy, health, an introduction to Sanskrit and yoga terminology, the philosophy and history of yoga, the three gunas, meditation, pranayama, introduction to key yoga texts, the Eight Limbs of Yoga (Classical Yoga), the principal branches of yoga, and yoga in the contemporary world.

 

This yoga teacher training course, the first of its kind in New Zealand, offers a high-quality certification (not 'accreditation') for yoga teachers and practitioners. The topic of certification, as opposed to accreditation, will be discussed in the introductory Theory session.

Please Note: Registrations are subject to pre-approval from the tutor.
