The Hatha Yoga Method
Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training 

18 June 2022 – 17 June 2023

The Haṭha Yoga Method is a potent integration of yoga, meditation, mindfulness and yogic living. It is the synthesis of a combined 65 years yogic study, practice and teaching experience developed by Kookaburra Yoga founders and directors Mandy BeckerKnox and Robert Becker who have enduring links with modern yogic masters and mystics.

The Hatha Yoga Method combines the best of the wisdom traditions of yoga with modern mindfulness, neuroscience, yogic psychology, Ayurveda, connection to nature, and traditional and modern approaches to asana biomechanics and movement. Combined, this is powerfully transformative and healing on every level, and translates into accessible and uplifting classes you’ll be empowered to teach and share.

This 12 month program is registered with Yoga Australia at 500 hours, and is designed to take you on an educational and experiential journey through the yogic traditions from ancient to modern-day.  The training takes place at Kookaburra Creek Yoga Centre in the Perth hills, Western Australia and is led by Mandy BeckerKnox and Robert Becker. The centre is beautiful and spacious in the heart of nature. Surrounded by trees and extensive food gardens you’ll be introduced to a yogic way of life, living and learning harmoniously, close to nature. 

There is the option to attend all or part of the program online as all sessions are live-streamed, recorded and available online for the duration of the course. You’ll connect with your peers and community through our integrated zoom sessions and in our online community forum. For those who live outside of Perth there is the option to stay with us onsite during any/all of the modules for a small additional fee.

Over 12 months there are 11 weekend workshops, a 5 day retreat, weekly online studio/zoom classes (led by lead trainers & students), a 30 hour online course in yoga anatomy; 5 live-streamed yoga anatomy workshops, self-study comprised of reading and written assignments to complete at home; a private mentoring sessions prior to your teaching practicum to ensure you are empowered and equipped to teach and a mentoring session for your personal and professional development. There are 500+ hours of training and study, including 360 contact hours and 180 non-contact hours comprised of self-study, assignments and home practice.

By incorporating traditional, esoteric and practical, modern approaches you’ll learn to become a well-rounded, joyful practitioner of yoga and meditation, a master of your mind and emotions, and to teach and share with a diverse audience with integrity, intelligence and ease. Regardless of the ‘style’ of yoga you come to teach, your classes will be grounded in an ancient, enduring and embodied wisdom.

On completion of this course you’ll be well versed in the wisdom traditions of yoga, and an adept practitioner of asana, meditation, mantra and pranayama. You’ll graduate from this training an assured, confident teacher capable of supporting and inspiring others, with a supportive community of like-minded students and teachers who share the journey with you. You’ll graduate with the knowledge, confidence, resources, practical skills and authorisation to teach the Hatha Yoga Method beginners programs Absolute Beginners Yoga Course and the Introduction to Meditation Course, and develop your own unique style of delivery to teach classes to students in your own community.

The training is led by Mandy and Robert who have a lifetime of lived and teaching yogic experience. Mandy is registered with Yoga Australia as a Senior Teacher which is significant as only teachers recognised as having 1,000+ hours of training and 10,000+ teaching hours are eligible to provide Teacher Training Programs accredited with Yoga Australia.

Program Structure

Instudio and/or online

The Hatha Yoga Method Teacher Training is comprised of 11 weekend workshops, which are delivered monthly, a 5 day residential retreat over the Easter long weekend, Wednesday evening classes, private mentoring and Saturday morning anatomy sessions. There is the option of attending in-person at the studio in the Perth hills, or by joining the live-stream via Zoom from your home. Attending all modules and classes (either in-studio or by Zoom) is required to graduate. All modules are recorded and if you miss a session you can catch up online. The course is hosted on our professional online learning platform and includes a private community forum to connect with your fellow teacher trainees, much like social media, but without the distraction!

Weekend Workshops

Each weekend module includes 3-4 lectures (see Learning Areas), facilitated discussion, guided practice, and practical workshops to apply the knowledge. There are workshops and sessions to practice and teach asana, pranayama, various forms of meditation, mantra, bandha, yoga nidra, guided relaxations, kriyas, chanting and other yogic practices in a sequential way building on knowledge and skill as the course progresses. The practices shared are linked to the topics and theoretical material presented as outlined in the Learning Areas.

Easter Residential Retreat

Modules 10 and 11 are part of a residential teacher training immersion to be held at Kookaburra Creek over the Easter long weekend (Thursday evening – Monday afternoon). In-person attendance at the residential retreat is strongly encouraged even if you have opted to do the course online. You have the option of staying onsite in shared accommodation (limited to 12 places) or camping onsite, or if you prefer you can attend the retreat daily staying offsite in your own accommodation. The retreat is from 5pm on Thursday and ends 2pm on Monday. Other days are 6.30am-9.30pm with a rest period and breaks during the day. Meals are catered and vegan, gluten-free (or you can choose to bring your own). This retreat replicates an ashram experience, and is an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in all you have learnt without everyday responsibilities and distractions

Graduation & Dinner

Graduation Ceremony with certificates issued, sharing, gift-giving, Havan Fire Ceremony and Dinner. We have a professional photographer onsite to take a lovely group photo and individual portrait which you may use to promote yourself as a teacher going forward. 

Dynamic Anatomy

Our anatomy expert Jean Campbell has developed a practical and simplified approach to anatomy developed over 25 years of study, practice and teaching. Jean will provide a thorough and engaging education in anatomy and physiology as it applies to yoga through her online learning platform www.dynamicanatomycourses.com combined with five 2 hour interactive live-streamed Zoom sessions. Jean is based in Sydney and is a dedicated yoga and anatomy educator and has also been associated with Svastha Yoga and the Mohans for many years. There is an emphasis on the practical application of anatomy as it relates to our practice of yoga, and to our teaching of yoga asana to ensure our instruction is appropriate, safe and relevant. The course complements the overall training, helping you integrate and comprehend the most practical aspects of anatomy study. There are 16 modules focussing on a different part of the body, discussing bones, joints, ranges of motion, muscles and possible reasons for muscular imbalance, restrictions and pain. Principles of injury prevention are presented in a concise and practical manner – meaning that you will be able to apply this knowledge immediately into your own yoga practice and teaching. At the commencement of the training you will be given access to www.dynamicanatomycourses.com where you will complete the 30 hour level 1 course. You’ll have a year to complete the program and will be assigned units to complete each month. In addition to this you will have five 2 hour sessions with Jean which are live-streamed over Zoom. 

Supervised Teaching

7pm-8pm Wednesday evenings. You’ll gain live teaching experience! Attend in studio or online from home. Each teacher trainee will design and teach a supervised class at the studio and online via zoom for fellow teacher trainees. Prior to teaching your class you will have a one-to-one mentoring session to receive guidance and advice, learn to market and promote your class online and gain studio experience teaching to students in person and online. There will be some weeks where the facilitators and guest teachers lead the Wednesday classes to ensure you have plenty of practical guidance and opportunities for integration of practices and concepts learnt during the weekend modules. The Wednesday evening calendar will be established once the training commences. It is likely to be a commitment of 2-3 Wednesdays per month. If you can’t attend live you can watch the replay.

Self-study & Assignments

Every month there is reading to do at home and assignments to complete. Assignments are set each month and explore the themes and source texts more deeply and are designed to be completed sequentially. These vary each month and may include short essays, writing a story/parable, designing classes and yoga sequences, recording meditations, drawing infographics, designing your daily routine, writing a business plan and more. Support and guidance is given to help structure and craft these. We also organise optional Study Groups during the training generally on a Monday or Saturday morning instudio (and live-streamed). No need to worry if you don’t consider yourself a writer or an artist, support is given to help develop these skills which is an important part of becoming a discerning, critical thinker and articulate, confident communicator across varying mediums. There are also monthly online quizzes following each Module which are a blend of multiple choice and short answer questions to complete – to ensure integration of theoretical material. 

The time commitment is significant. To really get the most from the course you will need to dedicate at least 4 hours a week to self-study and completing course work. No need to worry if you don’t quite get everything done on time – you will have access to all the course materials online including video lectures and the anatomy program for an extra year following the training, and if needed you have this extra 12 months to complete the coursework and graduate. There is also the option to graduate with a lesser qualification (300 Hour Certificate – see criteria below).

Practice & Reflect

Following each Module students are expected to practice what was learnt at home over the month. Practices will include asanas, mudras, pranayama, meditation, mantra, chanting. Each month students will complete and submit a ‘Monthly Reflection’ which is essentially a chronicle of your practices and study completed, obstacles faced, and any insights gained along the way.


The program content is delivered in 10 sequential modules which each integrate theory and practice. You’ll learn the asana, pranayama, meditation, mudras and mantras relevant to each topic, building on knowledge, technique, practice and teaching methods over 12 months.

Both Mandy and Robert are certified by Svastha Yoga to teach the Hatha Yoga of Krishnamacharya and have special permission from A.G. Mohan and Indra Mohan to teach and share all they have learnt from these master teachers over fourteen years.

The greatest influence on yoga in modern times was undoubtedly the legendary 20th century yogi, Sri T. Krishnamacharya – a master of yoga, scholar of all Indian philosophies and a healer of repute. Krishnamacharya is widely considered the ‘father’ of modern yoga, having taught the world’s most influential teachers and shaping yoga as we know it today.

A. G. Mohan is one of the senior and highly regarded most yoga masters alive now, and a direct link to the authentic yoga traditions. A. G. Mohan continues to study, practice, and teach. He was a personal student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya for 18 years from 1971 to 1989. With his wife, Indra, he originated the Svastha organisation in Chennai, India. Svastha has an international presence with programs around the world, and is an authoritative and accessible source of authentic yoga and Ayurveda. They offer training on yoga, yoga therapy. mindfulness, mind and body well-being, and related areas, combining the best of ancient wisdom and  modern science.

Indra Mohan has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than three decades. She is one of the few people who received a post-graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya. Known for her serene demeanour, she is a source of support and wisdom to her many personal students.

A.G. Mohan is the lead author of several books by the Mohan family, some of which are used as essential and recommended reading on this yoga teaching training program and other programs around the world.
