What our Graduates Say

It took me a long time to make the decision to do the course to become a yoga teacher, but I'm so glad I actually went ahead and started the course. I am loving every moment of the course. The teachers are so fun and very dedicated. We are learning not only to be the best yoga teachers we can be. but so much more valuable information which we will carry on through the rest of our lives. Thoroughly recommend it!- Viv Adams, Cert IV Class of 2017
A random Google search led me to The Yoga House and I've stumbled onto a gold mine! There are so many reasons why I love the yoga teacher training at the Yoga House - the teachers, Lisa and Lyn are wonderful women who are wise, patient and down to earth - Japanese therapy yoga is fascinating to learn about and the results are real and lasting - what's more, it's been so rewarding to share the knowledge and joy of yoga with family, friends and the wider community. Go on, take up the challenge and see for yourself!- Sonya Kim, Cert Class of 2013 & Adv.Dip Class of 2014
The extensive knowledge and the personal tuition you receive at The Yoga House really does set you up for a great future in yoga. The down to earth style of teaching sits perfectly with the style of yoga, which shows its results and benefits in many forms, both physically and mentally. Best of all, the school offers continued support throughout your learning journey, which aptly compliments your growth and enjoyment of teaching yoga.- C.Curtis, Cert Class of 2012, Adv.Dip. 2013
I finally decided to do the yoga teacher training and had already enrolled at a another yoga school when one of my yoga friends recommended the Yoga House Teacher Training. I attended one of Lisa's classes and immediately knew it was the right place for me! I decided to do the teacher training at the Yoga House and the switch was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The training is incredibly interesting, fun and the people are fabulous. Lisa and Lyn have a deep knowledge of yoga and practice. I am very grateful for their generosity when sharing that knowledge. I would recommend you try this training. Its great and it has changed my life!- Tiff B, Cert Class of 2012, Adv.Dip, Zen Shiatsu Class of 2013
The best decision I have made and since graduating I have not looked back. I now work as a yoga teacher full time which is exactly what I wanted. The teacher training is great, very informative and fun and the lovely ladies I trained with at the college encourage everyone to learn at their own pace in a very friendly atmosphere. The many great students, teachers and teacher trainers make this place a great place to study, in small size classes to so I never felt I was missing out. I feel very blessed to be a part of your Yoga House College… it makes me a better me, every single day, and I just love it.- Nic Reynell, Cert Class 2015, Adv.Dip ongoing
I went along to The Yoga House 18 years ago to do yoga. I love the seasonality of the yoga, it gives you variety, challenges as well as being holistic and healing. It wasn’t long before I decided to do The Yoga House teacher training course as I wanted to get a better understanding of the theory behind the yoga because it had changed my life for the better and had become my passion – I wanted to be the catalyst for change for others through teaching. The course provided me with great personal development even if I didn’t want to teach in the end. There was only encouragement and support to work towards teaching which although terrifying in the beginning has been one of the most rewarding things I have done and I have been teaching for 16 years! The teaching is of a high standard and the support of the Yoga House community is awesome! I am coming back to continue my study and learning in 2018, hope to see you there.- Melina Iuculano, Cert Class of 2002, Adv.Dip, Zen Shiatsu Class of 2004


I want to learn more about yoga but I’m not sure about teaching it?

  1. Many of our teachers never thought they would be teaching, they just signed up to learn more about this great yoga.  Teaching yoga is fun – but if it’s not for you then, the experience and knowledge you will gain with a remedial yoga teaching course at The Yoga House is just as much about personal development as it is vocational training.

What is the difference between a yoga teacher versus an instructor?

There is more to teaching yoga than just showing others how great your yoga is.  Teaching yoga is a combination of the skills you learn in your teacher training course and your general life experiences.  A good teacher training program should give you the knowledge and experience to teach groups of individuals – because that is exactly who you will be teaching in a class.

Can I make a living from being a yoga teacher?

Yes you can.  With vocational training, you can be job ready. Job ready means the course you complete includes all the skills and knowledge to be confidently employed. There is only one government registered yoga course in Sydney, ( –  The Yoga House, Registered Training Organisation ensuring the highest level of training in Australia.   Do your research of the courses on offer and make sure that you are getting what you need to be a successful yoga teacher.

What if I can’t make some of the classes?

Even the best made plans can change – life happens.  So, make sure your course offers you comprehensive documentation, online student assistance and opportunities to work through the work you may have missed.  Good training programs often include study buddies and mentoring.  Talk to the course advisors to make sure that the times offered for the course suit your needs and what time commitment you would need to make. You also want to think about the support you get after you graduate.  The best colleges offer mentoring and support programs with continuing professional development for their new graduates.

Will the course teach me how to run my own business?

People do not magically appear on the mat when you start a new business, book the local hall or put on a class in your lounge room.  Look for a course that includes elements of business training, marketing, self-promotion and business administration. When starting a business, you need to know all about latest work health and safety policies as well as your rights and responsibilities as a yoga teacher.  You should also insist on a course that gives you a thorough knowledge of the human body and a basic understanding common health issues.  This is a must for anyone working with people and will help you deal with the variety of people in your classes.

What style of yoga should I choose?

Consider a style of yoga that is more than just a simple sequence of moves, or the latest fad. There has been a strong increase in demand for remedial therapeutic styles of yoga giving graduates the opportunity to work outside the fitness industry.   Choose a course that is accredited with the Australian Skills Council of Australia as this will also open up career paths for continued education in the complementary health care industry.

What about online yoga teacher training?

There are hundreds of quick and online courses claiming that this is all you need to become a yoga teacher.  They seem an affordable option in relation to cost and time. However, most of these courses don’t give you the actual experience you need to become a safe and successful yoga teacher.  A good teacher training program should give you experience teaching in a supervised and supportive environment.  It should include your personal practise and all the added costs involved when teaching including first aid certificates, and the skills you need to register with industry associations making you eligible for insurance coverage.

What is the best way to pay for the course?

Registered training organisations offer interest free monthly instalment plans that make the training a more affordable option.  If it is a local studio or teacher offering training and demanding upfront payments, make sure that you check how safe your study program fees are before signing up.

How good do I need to be at yoga to do a yoga teacher training?

Your own yoga is not the most important part of becoming a yoga teacher.  Over the years we have had people start the teacher training that have had little experience with their own personal yoga, but a huge desire the help others.  These are often our best teachers as their focus it not on themselves, but sharing the yoga with their clients.

I have an injury, can I do a Yoga course?

Don’t let anything stop you from doing something you love.  Yoga teachers are just normal people, with their own injuries, habits (good and bad) and physical restrictions.  Think of it this way, if you have had a bad back, you will have more understanding and empathy for your client than someone who has not experienced back pain.

I am pregnant, or want to get pregnant. Will this stop me from doing the Yoga Teacher Training?

The great thing about Remedial Yoga is that you can practise right up until the day you give birth.  It is safe and is also recommended for women to do while they are pregnant. Don’t forget, our have been running for many years and will be for years to come, so you can transfer to later accredited training courses when you have had the baby.
