Meet Your Trainers

Hi, our names are Michael Daly and Vanessa Rudge. We are the founders of Being Yoga and the creators of this 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training course. We’ve been teaching yoga, managing busy studios, running retreats and facilitating our Level 1 and 2 yoga courses for over 20 years.

We’ve built this yoga teacher training course on one core principle – Worlds Best Practice…

We are not a ‘style of yoga’ nor do we belong to any guru or tradition. Our aim has been to seek out, study and practice what we believe is the best yoga, meditation, anatomy, personal development and philosophy on the planet today. We take the best from the old and the new and distill this into a really potent yet really fun style of yoga training that is highly relevant for today’s modern world. We’d love to share this path with you.

Sunshine Coast Yoga Teacher Training FAQ

How much experience do I need to enrol?

There are no hard and fast rules but generally 6 – 12 months of consistent yoga practice is a minimum. Having said this though, our main pre-requisite is passion and drive. We have had people with one months experience join and become wonderful yoga teachers. Speak to us if you’re not sure.  

Can I become a teacher straight away?

Yes! All certifications are professionally recognised by Yoga Alliance so and you are able to get insurance immediately upon graduation.  Some graduates have literally started teaching the day after graduation. Yoga Teaching insurance is only about $200 as year and can be grouped with other modalities such as massage.  

Do I have to do all the teaching modules if I just want to learn more about yoga?

The first answer is No.

The second answer is - your question will probably change as the course progresses.

We have many people do our teacher training just to learn more about yoga and dive into this personally transformational experience. If this is the level you want to take it at, then that’s fine.

However, what we have found in every course so far is that once people connect with the deeper power of yoga and the collective energy of the group, they are more than happy to give teaching a go. It’s all very non threatening at first. You only teach to two other friends and we laugh at ourselves a lot! What people find is that learning to verbalise something they are doing in their body i.e. to speak what they are feeling, is often quite difficult. With just a little practice though, these new circuits start to be formed in the brain and body. You will find that this skill will be invaluable in many other aspects of your life.

The choice of course is always up to you.

What assessment is there?

You will be required to lead a Yoga Nidra to a group and teach small sections of 3 classes to a group to a satisfactory level.

There is no failure - only feedback. 

Written assessment includes answering some Review Questions (revising the content we have covered + some personal insights) and an Anatomy & Physiology Assignment (1000 words) which you can submit an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) for if appropriate. 

Do I have to do lots of classes between sessions?

Only 10 classes over the 5 months.  We offer you focussed training days where we break down poses, anatomy, philosophy and yogic lifestyle. With attending endless classes you don't necessarily learn what you need to know in order to skillfully teach yoga. 

Refunds & Cancellations

After the first weekend of the course you are considered to have made a commitment to the entire training and there are no further refunds after this time.  This is because our courses are normally full with a waiting list and we have already booked and paid for your place on the retreat.   If for some reason you may be unable to complete the yoga teacher training course, we are happy for you to continue on a future course if possible. 

Refund of deposit:  The initial $300 deposit is refundable only if your enrolment is cancelled at least 6 weeks before the course commences.

You may contact us on an individual basis to discuss extenuating circumstances or to possibly defer your place onto the following course if necessary.

Here's What Others Are Saying:


Sunshine Coast Teacher Training 

"This amazing course has not only given me incredible tools as an emerging yoga teacher, it has also given me a deeper understanding of myself and has allowed me to disassemble the barriers I have had up for years. It has allowed me to truly open my heart to the limitless potential within me."


Rockhampton Yoga Teacher Training

"My awareness has now jumped a few more levels and I am feeling a profound engagement with the world around me. Your yoga teacher training course content and your beautiful personalities and teaching style are in lovely synchronicity. Blessings for providing such a life changing opportunity. "

In this training you will be taken through four key modules of learning:


The Align module brings everything back to basics. Learn how to safely align over 65 yoga postures with our Central Alignment Technique. This template, we developed, makes understanding and teaching alignment simple and effortless. Learn how to adapt yoga poses to the individual creating a dynamic evolution rather than being stuck in a model of what yoga ‘should’ look like. This module also includes Anatomy and Physiology along with History and underlying philosophies of yoga.


The enhance module is where everything starts to flow. You learn how to align your practice with the breath, how to move, feel into and experience yoga from an entirely new perspective. This module is taught on retreat where there is a chance to deepen your yoga practice, step away from the world and dive a little deeper within. Pranayama, mantra and deeper philosophies are also explored in this module.


During the observe module you will fall in love with meditation and develop an inner life practice that will become one of the great jewels of your yoga training journey. You will learn and practice a number of simple yet powerful methods of meditation. This module is about looking into yourself with a deepening sense of awareness and clarity.


The first three modules are about establishing yourself in yoga and developing a practice for life. Having spent this much time working on yourself, teaching now starts to become effortless and heartfelt. Intensive and focussed training is provided on all elements of teaching, from correct alignment, giving adjustments, appropriate language, sequencing, planning a class and how to teach to specialist groups such as beginners and pregnancy.

You will take a deep dive into your body and fall in love with movement, flow and breath.  You will take a deep dive into your mind and fall in love with stillness, calm and creativity.  You will take a deep dive into your life and fall in love with the incredible potential inside YOU!

You will leave this part-time yoga teacher training course taught on the Sunshine Coast, not only with a deeper love affair with yoga and meditation but with the real confidence to step out there and teach if you choose.


I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the Yoga Teacher Training course. It has been a truly life changing experience. Under your guidance I have been able to establish a practice that has allowed me to access myself and my personal power in a way I'd always searched for. 

The space that you hold and the beautiful community that was built during the course is a real credit to you both. There is so much of your love and passion poured into this course. 

Thank you both so much. It was a real pleasure to learn from you both. I look forward to doing further trainings with you in the future and hopefully working together one day.  


Brisbane Yoga Teacher Training

I've recently completed a level 1 yoga teacher training with Being Yoga in Brisbane. I couldn't have been more impressed by the quality, and depth of information that Vanessa and Michael delivered. They also walk the talk which is very refreshing. I particularly found the 4 day retreat of great benefit, to really immerse myself in the teachings.

If you're looking for an entry level teacher training, I would definitely recommend Being Yoga. I can't wait to attend their level two workshops!
