Dashboard

  • A visual snapshot of your annual CPDs and teacher training hours and teaching experience. Click the top right arrow on the CPD tracker to view a list of your logged CPDs. You can record your CPDs or hours by clicking the plus sign. These features will be further explained in the next 2 points.

My Profile

Every teaching member registered with Yoga Australia has a public teaching profile displayed on our website. Your Bio is a blank canvas to present the information you would like to share publicly. Here are some examples of what your Bio could include: 

  • Preferred Contact Method, such as Email, mobile, social accounts, website. 
    Please note: If no contact email/number is shared in the bio, no one will be able to contact you. 
  • Class Timetable: Where & when you are teaching. 
  • Qualifications & experience: Courses/ Training completed. 
  • Testimonials, reviews and references from students, teachers, colleagues. 
  • Industry Achievements: Presenting, speaking or exhibiting activities, volunteer positions, writing a book or featured article. 

Important Note: this information also feeds through to our Teacher directory. The directory uses words as search terms, so make sure you use all key words you’d liked to be searchable for in your Bio (such as your yoga style, location, anything unique you’d like to be searchable for, etc). 

List an Event or Workshop

Simply complete the included form to have your community based workshop or event listed on the Yoga Australia website. Your event will become visible to the public once approved.
NOTE: Teacher Training and Professional Development Courses must be submitted for registration with Yoga Australia and NOT listed here. 

Upload CPD Points

Use the CPD form to log CPDs throughout your membership year. Points will be added to your CPD Tracker (located on your Dashboard). Learn more about changes to CPD’s and how to use the tracker here: https://yogaaustralia.org.au/resources/cpd-tutorial. Your CPD tracker resets with every new membership year (points return to zero and entries are cleared, but remain visible to staff).
