Brisbane yoga enthusiasts have a promising opportunity to extend their knowledge in Australia’s preferred method of cardio, with My Health Yoga in New Farm offering fully accredited yoga instructor courses.
Owner and accredited Senior Level 3 Yoga Instructor, Carrie-Anne Fields believes the first step to becoming a teacher is completing a beginners course. “Anyone wanting to become a yoga teacher needs to do a Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training course. At MHY, we offer in-studio or online training courses. Our Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training course is a 350 hour course so it provides thorough and quality training to become a more traditional yoga teacher with skills in posture, breath-work, meditation and philosophy,” Fields said.
With My Health Yoga starting an an extension from her original business My Health, Fields had always wanted to offer specialty teacher courses for those willing to help others. It has since progressed to become one of Australia’s leading and largest yoga teacher training academies. My Health Yoga also offers Level 2, Yin Yoga, Yoga Massage and online courses, with opportunities for practicing yoga teachers to conduct their own workshops. “The main challenge is to commit to the personal development which will accompany this kind of training. You can’t be a great yoga teacher unless you are willing to transform your own life!”
For these to be successful, Fields believes there needs to be a passion for not only bettering yourself, but for those you aid on their self development journey through yoga. “Be authentic, don’t follow the crowd or the trends. Teach from your heart and remember true yoga is not a fitness workout – it is a scientific pathway to achieve peace,” Fields said.
