|This course will change your life!|
BHYS offers an affordable, comprehensive yoga teacher training which includes asana (physical postures), mindfulness meditation, pranayama, applied anatomy, applied philosophy- yoga and Buddhism. It offers the essential foundations and techniques to teach yoga at a beginner to general level.
|About this course:||BHY Teacher Training course is a dynamic and comprehensive course which includes various styles of asana practice (Hatha, Iyengar, dynamic, vinyasa -beginner to intermediate level), class sequencing, prenatal yoga, applied anatomy, pranayama and meditation. The Meditation and Philosophy subjects incorporate both yoga and Buddhist perspectives.
The art and science of Yoga is an integrated age old system offering the means to physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing. Students of this yoga teacher training course may expect to deepen their personal practice, competently teach others and look forward to enhancing their overall health and wellbeing.
This is one of the few yoga teacher training courses in Australia that places an emphasis on integrating the practice of Mindfulness Meditation with the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga. An online meditation practice incorporating Yoga and Buddhist studies accompanies this training to support and inform the student’s personal practice.
In our course we also like to laugh and enjoy a light hearted approach to learning!
"The Baulkham Hill's Yoga Teacher Training was a wonderful way to consolidate and expand my years of Yoga practice. Although I had read widely and practiced broadly over the years, the teacher training added a level of depth and understanding not possible through personal study. This was made possible by the expert knowledge and skills of James and Michele Sierra. Their complimentary understanding of asana and anatomy, and meditation and philosophy makes this course comprehensive as well as unique. I highly recommend this course to, not only those aspiring to be teachers, but anyone who is looking to deepen their personal practice and understanding of yoga."

Module 1: 180hrs
2nd February – 20th July
|The Yoga Teacher Training is offered in two Modules.
You may enrol in Module 1 for either the purpose of gaining accreditation to teach yoga or to enhance your own practice and understanding of how yoga can contribute to living a healthier and more fulfilled life.
Module 1 incorporates the study of Asana (Level 1), Anatomy (Level 1), Mindfulness Meditation (including the online meditation course), Pranayama, and an introduction to the study of yoga philosophy. This module offers an historical and philosophical framework which includes the 'Eight limbed path' or Astanga Yoga found in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Module 1 is a prerequisite for Module 2 and the full Yoga Teacher Training Diploma.

Module 2 offers a firm foundation for committed students who have completed Module 1 and who would like the accredited qualification to teach. In this training we go deeper into Yoga philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, subtle yogic physiology, intermediate asana, anatomy (level 2), meditation, sanskrit terminology, teaching skills and yoga therapy.
"We encourage and invite dialogue throughout the entire course regarding a student's right to view both the beneficial aspects of Yoga and those parts that may not sit well with one's personal, religious and philosophical outlook. In this way the content of this course will be more applicable to your own life and predicated on a tolerance of the various religious and philosophical outlooks of your own future students". Michele
