Greenwood Yoga Academy is currently the only government accredited Yoga Teacher training course in WA and the only government accredited Yoga Therapists course in Australia.
GYA’s Advanced Diploma is grounded in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, with our Yoga practice being informed and influenced by Yoga great, Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.
GYA has no affiliation to any particular method or path of Yoga that has developed from Krishnamacharya’s students who over the years have each developed their own method or path according to their understanding and preferences. Trainees are introduced to different styles/lineages and paths of Yoga to view more objectively in order to develop a well-rounded view of Yoga.
GYA provides the highest quality of training for Yoga Teachers and Yoga Therapists for graduates to be able to create their own successful Yoga business and this course has been designed to suit people’s busy modern lives. The theory components are delivered electronically, and trainees are required to study in their own time leaving our face-to-face sessions for practical components of applying the theory to the practice of Yoga and assessments for competency.
Trainees graduating will do so with a firm grasp of applied anatomy and physiology, Yoga philosophy, counter-indications, adjustments and corrections, sequencing, pranayama and meditation along with the business component of teaching Yoga professionally. Graduates are then well prepared to confidently and successfully manage their own Yoga teaching business, with components on financial management, working with competitors and colleagues in an ethical and compassionate manner, the art of negotiating, as well as modern marketing and promotions.
Principal Yoga Teacher, Trainer and Assessor Margaret, is joined by qualified and experienced Yoga Teachers: Alison Hilton; Chioni Hicks; Helen Bennett; and Dr Rossana McKenzie.
