Be more than good. Be the best – Be Spectacular.
What does it mean to be the best – a spectacular teacher!
What makes one teacher shine above the rest? Is it experience? Knowledge? A commitment to developing oneself through one's own practice? Or is it just being a spectacular student?
Of course, the most willing student always becomes the best teacher. Willing to go that extra mile and do whatever it takes students like this always become the best, even great teachers.

Excited to be part of a wider community that offers ongoing support
If your answer is yes to all of the above
Then you are the perfect candidate for our Ishta System teacher training
We’ve decided to offer this training because as long-time practitioners we feel that working with people who are ready to teach inspires them to develop their own practice which is as important as teaching them how to teach.
In our experience, once you are ready to teach you can only teach what you know. Often after completing a teacher training and subsequently having to find work yoga teachers get so busy that their own practice suffers and often falls by the wayside. As important as it is learning face to face, it’s also important to be able to assimilate and integrate what you have learned in training.
The training will run over 25 days with integration, practice
As this is a highly sought after training we are accepting a maximum of 25 participants.
We are interested in creating a relationship with the people we train so they feel supported, nurtured and continue to be inspired.
Our teacher training is registered with Yoga Australia 350 hrs offering top quality instruction with senior level teachers.
