The yoga teacher training from Vanessa & Michael from Being Yoga has transformed my life! And I'm not exaggerating. The learning experience was so rewarding and inspiring and the friendships made have enriched the way I view the world. Vanessa & Michael put their whole beings into this program and you know, from the first moment that they live & breathe yoga and want to share their extensive and extraordinary knowledge with everyone. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to delve deeper into the world of yoga, this experience is for you 🙏🏼

I was lucky enough to do my yoga teacher training with the gorgeous Michael and Vanessa.a few years back now, I remember seeing a video they had made offering the course and thought I’m just going to do this. I was the oldest person there but what a beautiful rewarding experience it was , I learnt so much, I felt so grateful for the guidance Michael and Vanessa bring to the table, I’m a great believer in bring it all to the table and they did. They are passionate people with a love for all things yoga meditation and mindfulness, the course is amazing. I have since done more training with Vanessa and will do more. The meditation, the breathing techniques the yoga are only a few gifts you will receive there is so much more to it , the people you will meet the connection you will make will make your world bigger brighter and more beautiful. I love being a yoga teacher and Being Yoga gave me that gift I am forever grateful. Also you are never too old , yoga is probably the best decision you will ever make for yourself , do it for yourself , Michael and Vanessa are gifted teachers , they blend the training beautifully and genuinely care about what they do. so good, you will love it Namaste ❤️🙏🏼

Hi I would like to share with you my close encounters with 'Being Yoga' I have known Vanessa and Michael for many years. My first experience was at the Woodford Folk festival back in the early 2000's. I was a volunteer at the festival and discovered a yoga class in the morning to jump start each day. I was very impressed with their method of teaching, and long story short, when I decided some years later to follow my passion and commit yoga teacher training, I took my yoga teacher Vivian (who passed only recently at the young age of 98)!! up to Coolum to attend one of Vanessa's classes, Vivian gave me the thumbs up straight away!! I trained with them in 2010 and started teaching straight away, I was pumped and so eager to launch off. Vanessa and Michael are wonderful, caring and dedicated teachers. They gave me another dimension to my yoga life. Since then and over the years I have done other modules of training with them and find how my teaching practices have evolved with each extra layer. I always go back to the 'Align and Refine' teacher training module, which has become the foundation of my teaching pratice, especially but not only when new students join the class. I have also been fortunate to have had training with Michael on my journey through meditation exploring the chakras and the power of the breath. These invaluable teachings have been a great asset to my classes. I was very blessed also to travel to Bali and join them in a Yoga retreat in Ubud. It was the best, a mind blowing experience, discovering and deepening the 'breath of fire'. The timing was perfect, just before Covid brought the world to a halt! Just recently this year I attended Vanessa's teaching module of Yin Yoga! It adds a lovely balance to the Yang part of yoga. I mix the two styles in my classes and the Yogis just love it and reap the benefits. These are only a few of a long list of teaching modules to choose from. Be sure to check them out. All in all, these guys are great they are changing the world with their extensive knowledge, love and dedication. Thank you Vanessa and Michael 🩷🩷🙏 .

Thank you Vanessa and Micheal for giving me such a solid foundation as a yoga teacher. I did my training with them over 13 years ago and I still remember clearly the rich and knowledgeable smorgasbord of information that has sustained me as a yoga instructor all this time. I can never express how deeply the training changed my life for the better and I will be forever grateful for the wisdom and knowledge they have passed on. Namaste

Yoga Teacher Training surprisingly has became a milestone of my life. By far the oldest participator at 60 + years, the physical and philosophical depth and purposefulness of teachings uncovered by Michael and Vanessa has set me up to continue a vinyasa yoga practice five years on. On reflection, an extended and highly relevant learning that was also great fun with wonderful class mates.

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 25 years.

We have dedicated ourselves to providing quality yoga education for over two decades.  We've led over 50 Level 1 & 2 Yoga Teacher Training Courses and 80+ Retreats worldwide as well as hosting a popular podcast and You Tube channel.

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 teacher 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?

This depends on how far you want to take your course.  We only ask you to document 10 classes.  However, we recommend you do as many as you can.  Rather than some courses that just have you do loads of regular classes, we focus on hands on training days where we break down poses, anatomy, philosophy and yogic lifestyle. Just attending endless classes won't necessarily help you 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:

Michael

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."

Charlotte

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:

Align

The Align module brings everything back to basics. Learn how to safely align hundreds of yoga postures with our Central Alignment Technique. This unique template makes understanding and teaching safe, structural alignment, simple and effortless. Learn how to adapt yoga poses to the individual person, rather than just using scripted language.  This module also includes Anatomy and Physiology and hands on adjusting.  

Enhance

Discover the power of your breath and how to access states of flow.  You learn the science and fundamentals of healthy breathing.  You understand how to align your yoga practice with the breath, how to move, feel into and experience yoga from an entirely new perspective. Deeper breathwork (pranayama), the science of sound and mantra as well as esoteric philosophies about the inner subtle body are also explored in this module.

Observe

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 teacher 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 history and deeper underlying philosophies of yoga are taught the Yoga Sutras and Tantric Yoga.

Serve

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 yoga 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, how to sequence vinyasa yoga, planning a class and how to teach to specialist groups such as beginners and pregnancy.

Testimonials:

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.  

Tabatha

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!
