Teacher training at Bhava is a year long journey in the community of Bhava. Trainees study yoga in its many aspects to gain qualification to teach yoga, or to immerse in a transformative personal journey. 

Bhava style of teaching yoga is creative in nature; so creativity, colour, music and presentation are emphasised through the course. Sharing in the community of Bhava, the studio atmosphere, plus the camaraderie of the trainee group make the course an enriching personal experience.


Intensives are are held over 16 Sundays throughout the year from 9a.m. – 4p.m. There will be two 3 hour Extra Sessions on a Saturday from 11:30am - 2:30pm scheduled through the year. 

Weekly Class attendance. Regular weekly attendance at a Yoga class is a requirement of this course and included in course fees.

Yoga lab - is a monthly class held on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8:30pm just for teacher trainers. Here we experience a regular yoga or meditation class and put it under the microscope and examine how it works and why. You will have a chance to take notes and ask questions as we take you through the mechanics of a class. Attendance at Yoga labs are a highly recommended course requirement. There are 10 Yoga labs spread over the first three terms. If you are unable to attend, this time must be made up in additional class attendance to comply with the minimum hour course requirement. 

Mentoring. We include a two month mentor period at the conclusion of our course. Each student has 2 x 1 hour mentor sessions which can be attended in person or remotely if preferred. These sessions are available from February - June 2021 and are an opportunity to help in transition from course completion to your new role as a qualified Yoga Teacher. 

Meditation classes. Bhava holds monthly Meditation classes on Thursday nights. 

Dates are announced each semester. Meditation classes are a recommended course requirement.
