Yoga Teacher Training

Western Wellness delivers industry leading yoga education and teacher training programs from our studio in Point Cook, in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne. We guarantee the quality of our training and have a commitment to excellence which is evidenced by our 5 star google reviews.

When you choose to study with Western Wellness you join a warm and inclusive Yoga community of like mined people who are dedicated to supporting you on your journey through Yoga.

Just like a yoga class, completing the Yoga Teaching program is about starting from where you are, learning as you go, and more importantly, enjoying and embracing the journey.

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, there is no barrier to entry, and just like a yoga class, you don’t need to be fit or flexible to undertake the program. It is common and perfectly acceptable that students will have pre-existing conditions and limitations within their yoga practice. The only prerequisite is easy: you must LOVE yoga.

Our Yoga Alliance accredited yoga teacher training programs are the most comprehensive, flexible, and affordable in Australia. Our commitment to quality and high training standards motivated us to design our 350-Hour Advanced Diploma of Yoga program. Students can choose to specialise their qualification in key areas of demand for Yoga Teachers such as, Hatha & Vinyasa, Yin & Relaxation Yoga, Restorative, & Trauma Informed Yoga, and Pregnancy Yoga.

The difference with Western Wellness is that our students develop the skills and confidence to be employed as successful Yoga Teachers. This is evidenced through our Yoga Apprenticeship Program, where we exclusively employ our graduates, nurturing their careers as successful Yoga Teachers.

Advanced Diploma in Yoga Teaching (350 hours)

This program is designed for anyone - you don’t need to be a fitness professional to get started - even if you’ve never taught a class before, this course is for you. Through your studies, you will gain practical experience and confidence in your own yogic knowledge, and also build the expertise to safely plan and deliver your own yoga classes. At the conclusion of the Advanced Diploma of Yoga you will be a certified Yoga Teacher, who is “job ready” and confident to teach yoga in Australia and internationally.

Delivered part-time over 12 months, Students have the option of attending training onsite in person, or attending remotely online in a self-paced environment. Our program offers comprehensive training in yogic practice, philosophy, lifestyle, and yoga teaching. Our program is extremely flexible and family friendly and can be easily completed by students who work full-time and have children.

We recognise that your study journey does not end when you complete your initial qualification. Western Wellness has incorporated specialist elective options as your part of our Advanced Diploma Qualification so that students can complete their studies in a flexible time frame that meets their needs. Students can choose one of the following majoring electives as part of their Advanced Teaching Diploma in Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga.

Students can also elect to complete all three modules and graduate with a (500 hour) Master of Yoga Teaching Qualification.
