Yoga Australia provides a level of professional support, education and compassionate care to yoga teachers of all traditions and lineages. As the peak body for yoga in Australia, they are the go-to. Their level of service and representation is fantastic – I highly recommend them!
Yoga Australia recommends the following minimum yoga teaching insurance cover for members (click here). Our Insurance Partner is GSA Insurance Brokers. You will need to be a Yoga Australia member to purchase insurance with GSA. You can apply for membership first, then purchase professional insurance after your membership is approved. Have your member number handy when you are signing up for your insurance.
A current HLTAID011 Provide First Aid or equivalent training certificate. The Provide First Aid must be updated every three years. We do not require the CPR (HLTAID009) refresher course to be completed each year.
Doctors/Nurses can register without a Provide First aid certificate by uploading a copy of either a current registration or current I.D.
Our members join Yoga Australia because they want to be part of a thriving and growing community of yoga professionals, with access to information, guidance and support delivered right here in Australia. Yoga Australia members are passionate about promoting and supporting the integrity and diversity of yoga. As the peak professional body for Australian yoga teachers, yoga therapists and yoga teacher trainers, Yoga Australia sets quality standards for teachers, yoga therapists and teacher training. We promote, advocate for, and protect their professional interests, development, and well-being.
When you join Yoga Australia you become part of an exceptionally supportive and engaged community. We understand that many of our members are sole traders and practitioners, and isolation can be an issue; it can feel lonely and tough at times. That’s why we provide lots of opportunities to connect with others in our community through online meetings, face to face events and through our private Facebook group, exclusive to members. And don’t forget, the Yoga Australia community is always just a phone call, email or a Facebook post away; here to guide and support you when you need it.
The past year has been extraordinary on so many levels and it has highlighted for us just how much our members have valued having a local organisation here to support them. Last year we hosted over 100 online and in-person events, offering members a chance to quickly adapt to the changing environment and most importantly connecting them to us and each other so that we can work through the many and varied challenges together. We have also been busy providing updates whenever regulations and restrictions change across the different states and territories and sourcing government clarification when needed to navigate these changes.
