Who you are is absolutely unimaginable.
When you stop imagining yourself in any form,
there is a revelation that has never been spoken,
but is directly experienced.

Aim of the Course

Over recent years yoga has become recognized as a mainstream modality of health and wellbeing. Due to this increased interest and demand for suitably qualified professionals Hampton Yoga Centre and the Victorian Institute of Yoga Education and Teacher Training (VIYETT) has developed the Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching to train and develop individuals to meet this demand.

The aim of the course is to develop competent and highly skilled Teachers of Yoga who are equipped to guide students safely and effectively through all disciplines relating to the practice of yoga. The course is designed to guide trainees through the basic foundations of a classical yoga system to the more advanced practices and philosophies ultimately leading to yoga teaching principles and practices that will equip the trainee with the necessary skills to instruct others in the practice of yoga with a high degree of confidence and sensitivity.

The Hampton Yoga Centre/VIYETT Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching is designed in such a way that you will gain all of the necessary skills to plan and conduct yoga classes and deliver these classes in a number of different settings to a diverse range of people seeking the benefits of yoga.

On completion of the course graduates will have attained a high level of competency in all aspects of yoga teaching and philosophy based on in depth experience and understanding of the meaning and processes that constitute the practice of yoga.

The teachings are deeply embedded in the classical systems of Yoga with emphasis on the major paths, the philosophical and scientific methods and the different styles of Yoga. These teachings are integrated into a contemporary style of yoga yet maintain all of the classical elements of the yoga tradition.

The Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching course is nationally recognized and approved by Yoga Australia.
