Student Resource Handbook

We are “not” human beings on the 'spiritual path rather we are 'spiritual beings' on the ‘human path'.

-Yogi Bhajan





The Hampton Yoga Centre Distance Learning courses are available and accessible for students wanting to undertake yoga studies or yoga teacher training Australia wide. Students undertaking our Distance Learning study programs receive the highest standard of yoga education and training and the courses are parallel to those that are delivered on-campus.

Hampton Yoga Centre has been training yoga students and yoga teachers for almost twenty years. In the year 2000 Hampton Yoga Centre became an affiliate training school with the Victorian Institute of Yoga Education and Teacher Training (VIYETT) and they deliver the course curriculum as set out by VIYETT to uphold the values and standards as set out by VIYETT.

Courses that are currently available via distance learning include:

  • Hatha Yoga Practitioner Certificate
  • Yoga Philosophy
  • Diploma of Yoga Teaching

The "Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching" is not currently available via distance learning but we hope to launch this course in the near future. All of the other courses listed are available via distance/online studies.

The distance learning fees include all of the text books and study materials. If you are undertaking a yoga teacher training course you will need to obtain a first aid certificate which is not included in the distance Education course fee and you will need to provide a copy of your current certificate upon completion of your course. The first aid certificate is only required for the Diploma of Yoga Teaching and if you intend to work as a teaching assistant you will need to complete a first aid course.

The Hampton Yoga Centre/VIYETT training courses are the most comprehensive studies program available to students living in Australia. Our courses explore all of the essential yogic disciplines and philosophies.

Upon successful completion of the course students will be awarded with a certificate of competence in their chosen stream of study. We also provide additional support and assistance to our students by making available short courses that will maintain their personal and professional development throughout the lifetime of their careers and render them suitable applicants for Yoga Australia membership. Upon successful completion of the yoga teacher training courses students are able to purchase Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance.
