yoga training workshops

Do you want to deepen your understanding of Yoga without having to commit to a Teacher Training Course? These workshops are available as individual events. Do one, or do them all, focus on the areas that inspire you, whether that’s a look at the impact of your thoughts and feelings with the Samkhya philosophy workshop, maintaining or establishing health and wellbeing with Ayurvedic Principles, or delving more into the physical body with Anatomy Fundamentals, Power and Yin.

We’re partnering with world-renowned Yoga Educators & best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews.

Using what they’ve learned in their combined 50-years of experience training yoga teachers, they’ve created a unique online + in-person course that’s exclusively available through Teacher Training programs like ours.

This is not your average anatomy training.

Don’t expect hours of “which bone is which” that makes you feel like you’re back in high school science classes…

Leslie & Amy spend time on the things that matter most to a yoga teacher and skip the memorization.

They’ll help you establish a broad base of knowledge by sharing examples, analogies, stories, and guiding you through physical experiments that make the material helpful and applicable to teaching yoga to students.

Leslie & Amy will also share their own favourite teaching strategies like…

* How to make poses accessible for any student
* What to do when students have an injury and still want to practice
* Simple cues that help every student find success on the mat

Leslie and Amy’s unique blend of humour and expertise make them the absolute best team to guide you through this phase of your journey.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
You’ll join Amy & Leslie at home via your computer for 20-hours of guided lesson content, reflection, personal exploration, and teaching preparation.  

They’ll lead you through movement experiments that will help you apply anatomy ideas to your own practice, and give you tools you’ll be able to access as a teacher. You’ll have time to soak up the material and try it out it in your own asana practice.

Then we come together as a group, you’ll already have a strong foundation. Our group time will be spent in hands-on application. We’ll discuss, share movement exercises, and observe exactly how this information interweaves with our Yoga Rhythms style.   

By the time we’re finished, you’ll have a broad understanding of the anatomical concepts that are most important to a yoga teacher so you can teach with confidence.

Yin 1

This Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course is for yoga teachers, graduates and current trainees who are ready to further their teaching skills.
Yin yoga targets the connective tissue of the body and consists primarily of floor poses held for long periods of time.
Yin yoga intends to place a small, healthy amount of stress on our joints and connective tissue (fascia, tendons and ligaments) by tensioning or compressing the tissue, it helps release tension and hydrate the fascia keeping it supple thus improving mobility in the body.
Yin also helps to move blocked ‘chi’ in the body and nourishes meridians, assisting with emotional, mental and physical health.
In this course, you will learn functional anatomy, the poses of yin, and how to see the anatomical differences in your students.
This training will equip you, as a teacher and as a practitioner, to add elements of Yin to your regular style of teaching, and to teach a complete Yin Yoga Class.
Here at Yoga Rhythms, we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to offer Yin training with one of our own graduates, Karl Jaross, who himself trained with the master of Yin Paul Grilley in both Thailand and Santa Cruze California.
Why choose to train with Karl? because after completing 200hrs Yin Teacher Training with Paul and Suzee Grilley, he went on to integrate Yin into his Hot Power yoga studio in Newcastle, making it one of the first studios in Australia to offer Yin Yang Yoga. He then trained hundreds of students and teachers in both Yin and Power yoga practices. Yin Yoga is a complement to any yang style practice.
If you have completed 200 or 350 hrs training with Yoga Rhythms then your investment is $350.
If you are from another school your investment is $450.

POWER VINYASA (CPD 30 hours)

He has taught over 100 teachers, many of them highly sought after and respected globe-trotting Yogis. They have all developed their own unique styles of teaching by maintaining the foundations built on the principles imparted through their training in POWER VINYASA with Karl.

Over the weekend you will be shown how to synchronize movement, correct dialogue, providing space and most importantly the art of repetition, self-practice and meditation. Transformation and evolution are essentials for life, without them, we stagnate, for students, there is nothing more powerful than those teachers who show us the way by example.

To continue your education: Complete a 1hr power yoga sequence in your own home for the next five days.

Samkhya Philosophy explains how we devolved from an expansive inclusive state of being to a limited personal perspective.

The process of yoga will let you identify the cause of this personal perspective, and help you to reevaluate any misperceptions.

When everything you perceive makes it through your mind unaltered, you will reveal the expansive, inclusive state.

Internal suffering is the best gauge of your progress.

When events no longer ‘trigger’ your buttons, when your helpful habitual patterns are stronger than the harmful ones, then you can act consciously, deliberately and compassionately, then you have mastered your mind.

When a situation causes you to suffer and you allow hurtful past conditioning to influence your reaction, it’s time to weed out the underlying cause.

This workshop will give you the tools to do just that.

Explore your mind through Samkhya and Yoga, refine and simplify.

As you identify which aspect of mind is active you will be able to coordinate the functions of your mind and find rest in the still centre, while still fully engaged in the world.
