YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
April 2024 | Yoga Alliance | Part Time | Hybrid
What is a hybrid training? Hybrid training is a combination of online and in-person training, so that the craving to continue to learn and evolve is possible for even the busiest of humans. We are delighted to be able to adapt our 200hr Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training to a hybrid format so that deepening your yoga practice is so much more accessible. We have thoughtfully considered all avenues so that the transmission of knowledge continues to be thorough, powerful and most importantly, personal.
Our teacher training is a sweet deep dip into the practice of yoga. Our time together will be a potent container for soul enquiry, energy uplift, creative incubation and a renewal of mind, body and spirit.
Whether you are compelled to deepen your personal practice, seek further understanding of yogic philosophy and its origins, want to understand the physical, energetic and mental bodies better or have an urge to change career paths and share the gifts of yoga to help others, KAI YOGA'S 200hr Teacher Training will support and guide you through this process.
Join Elisha, Fraser and some seriously legendary guest senior facilitators from a range of lineages, to dive deep into the ever-expanding spectrum of Yoga and how to articulate this ancient philosophy to support you in today's modern world. For years, the team from KAI YOGA have dedicated their lives to helping others transform theirs. This training is led from the heart. Our vision is create confident yet humble leaders that are awake to their personal power, who honour their own shadows and share their unique story wholeheartedly.
This course is a registered 200 hour Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training Program, delivered part time.
In-person weekend sessions will be facilitated at our SOUTH studio in Corrimal. See dates below.

HOW DOES HYBRID WORK?
This training will be a hybrid of IN-PERSON, LIVE STREAM and ON DEMAND recordings.
IN-PERSON WEEKEND SESSIONS
All scheduled weekend sessions (6 weekends in total) will be facilitated IN-PERSON with Elisha and Fraser at the South studio in Corrimal These sessions are compulsory to attend and are fundamental in your personal development as a yoga teacher. They will help you stay in close connection with your facilitators and fellow trainees plus these in-person sessions will provide a window of opportunity to dive deeper into the knowledge, review your studies, ask all your questions, real-time practice teach and receive feedback.
NON RESIDENTIAL RETREAT
Your training includes a 2 night (Friday - Sunday) non-residential retreat in Wiseman's ferr, NSW. A chance to immerse yourself into a retreat is a highlight of the Teacher Training experience and a potent way to embody the learnings.
ON DEMAND RECORDINGS
Between our scheduled in-person sessions, you will receive a selection of pre-recorded lectures from Fraser, Elisha and other Senior facilitators. You can play and replay these recordings whenever it suits you at your own pace.
YOUR PERSONAL PRACTICE
We encourage you to get on your mat during this time as much as possible! For the duration of the training you will receive a complimentary, unlimited membership to our South studio. During your training you will also receive classes made specifically for you. This will give you the opportunity to experiment with your new found knowledge and put it all into practice!
There will be short quizzes sprinkled in throughout the training to ensure you are digesting the knowledge. At our final in-person session we will ask you to each teach us a 20min sequence. After our final in-person session, you will have 3 months to submit an essay on yoga philosophy.

"Elisha and Fraser provided a very caring and nurturing environment to take my yoga teaching journey to the next level. I felt the feedback was relevant and practical. Would recommend to anyone from the experienced yogi to beginner."
"An active participant and graduate of first Kai yoga teacher training, in 2018, is one of the best accomplishments of my self care PSTD healing journey. In a personal vow to keep moving forward, the timelines of this program, one of the best decisions I’ve personally made for all aspects of my mind, body, spirit of the soul - well being. A hugely transformational journey of sorts. I simply cannot speak highly enough, of Elisha and Fraser leading the program. Done so with articulate and indughtful thought, care, hands in support, knowledge transfer and professionalism. That is. Simply, best in class. The course content, rich in the ancient yogic traditions, lineage and ancestory. Learning through the great old Sages of yoga through ancient Indian philosophy, poetic Sanskrit language to honour those traditions and whose teachings apply most invaluably in today’s worldly times. A practice, of sass a (physical body) and breath (prana) in movement, emphasised by importance of understand the anatomy for safety and alignment. A purity of a flow that heals, all aspects of the mind, and one that connects and brings together community under a common thread of kindness, love and connection, good for the self and towards one another. Yoga truly is ‘a journey to the self, of the self through the self. Bhavad Gita. This incredible transformation and transitioning milestone, has further validated my own commitment to selflessly drive attention, awareness of how Yoga and aligned psychology has helped me, through deep trauma and survivorship - in order that I will help and serve others in my community near and afar. Thank you, for this opportunity."

"The level of quality in the teacher training surpassed my expectations. I thought it would be a memorable experience with Fraser and Elisha but that was further enhanced by a support team of independent facilitators. It was a very personal well rounded training which gave me a greater understanding and insight into all aspects of becoming a better yoga teacher."
"I really think that the passing of time has allowed me to appreciate just what a transformative experience the training was for me…the training really was a seminal event in my life – it fundamentally changed the way I see myself and my place in the world.
To say that the training deepened my practice would be an understatement! Before the training I practised no more than once a week, and while I had a yearning for the holistic, spiritual side of yoga, my asana practice was very much a form of physical exercise. Since completing the course I’ve had a studio membership and practise every day in some shape or form – whether it be meditation, pranayama, yin or vinyasa – and I try to live by yogi values on and off the mat. My practise is now very much a spiritual practice – it’s the time that I come home to re-dedicate myself to my values and goals and to gain perspective on whatever else is going on in my life." ELLA
