Yoga Teacher Training

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at BodyMindLife is all about transformation; taking you on a personal journey that will inspire you, challenge you and empower you in all aspects of your life.

Why train with BodyMindLife?

Since we first opened our doors in 2002, BodyMindLife has taught more than a million students in classes across our four Sydney studios in Surry Hills, Potts Point, Bondi Beach and Redfern.

BodyMindLife draws from the classical teachings of Hatha Yoga, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Taoist (Yin/Yang) and blends this traditional information with Eastern and Western science, and a modern understanding of the human body and consciousness.

Our transformative courses will take you on a personal journey where you’ll learn how deepen your practice and build confidence to share your learnings with others, and truly live your yoga beyond the mat.

The BodyMindLife philosophy is to give you the best possible foundation in yoga to take the practice to the world – we won’t teach you one sequence to memorise or coach you to be someone you’re not.

Instead, we’ll give you all the skills and knowledge you need to develop your own authentic voice, and teach all levels in a classroom with confidence, intelligence and poise.

Meet our teaching team

BodyMindLife has some of the best yoga teachers from around the world. You’ll learn from our most senior teaching team and guest experts who bring more than 10,000 hours of training and decades of teaching experience combined.

Our studios

Our beautiful, dedicated training studios have been designed for natural light, healing and a sense of calm by architect Ferique Brown.

Based in the heart of Surry Hills, Ferique has used sacred geometry to create spaciousness and spaces that encourages our students to open up, feel safe, be energetically nourished and well.

You’ll have access to secure lockers and be able to freshen up with state-of-the-art showers and change rooms equipped with organic wash products, hair dryers and straighteners.
We also have a Yogi Lounge with hot herbal tea and wifi to connect and recharge on your own or with your fellow classmates before and after lessons, and you’ll be able to reinvigorate with the cutting edge technology of hot, cold and oxygen therapy at Vrai Health.

  • I felt empowered, energised and have a new strength that I’ll apply to all areas in my life. The course helped me find my tribe, live my life to the full and realise my purpose. I am so grateful for this adventure.

    Graduate Teacher

  • Don’t think, don’t question and don’t rationalise. Book a training, you’ll never regret it.

    Graduate Teacher

  • I didn’t plan to take my course, it was a completely spontaneous decision. At the time it was scary as because it was way out of my comfort zone. But from the very first day it felt like I was supposed to be there. I gained so much wisdom, power and strength from this course and I’m so glad I chose BodyMindLife.
