200 Hour Part Time Yoga Teacher Training Sydney

“And suddenly you know: it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.” – Meister Eckhart

BodyMindLife offers one of the most respected and established Vinyasa training programs accredited by Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia.

Our part-time, life-changing course begins with a beautiful seven day immersion retreat in Byron Bay followed by a five month programme of weekend training on dates as outlined in the intakes section.

Why train with BodyMindLife?

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

We’ve created a comprehensive Yoga Teacher Training flexible learning program where you’ll live and breathe yoga, and leave with the ability to teach safe and intelligent sequences in your own authentic style.

At BodyMindLife we’ll lead you through the yogic principles and asana technique starting on day one, and  give you the opportunity to practice  your teaching skills in a supportive and encouraging environment.

We limit the number of students in each training to make sure you receive one-on-one guidance and run a mentor program where you’ll be paired with a facilitator so you have a personalised point of contact as well as a small group of your fellow students to check in with during the course for extra support.

When you start your teacher training journey with us, you’ll join our incredible and supportive tribe of BodyMindLife teachers and students, and continue to learn from the best in the business.

We’ve sought some of the best yoga teachers from around the world to teach you the the ancient art of yoga in its different forms, from asana and alignment techniques through to pranayama and meditation, and take you on a transformational journey that will inspire, challenge and empower you on the mat and beyond.

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.

  • 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.

    Graduate Teacher

  • 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.
