200HR Vinyasa Teacher Training
March 2020 | Yoga Alliance | Part Time
Whether you are compelled to deepen your personal practice, seek further understanding of yogic philosophy and its origins or have a deep urge to share the gifts of yoga to help others grow, KAI YOGA'S 200 Hour Teacher Training will support you in your quest.
There is a huge shift of consciousness happening within and around us, it's palpable! It's undeniable that the yoga movement is expanding. More and more people are turning to this ancient practice for healing and inspiration, which is the very reason why we need more epic and courageous humans (like you!) to help nurture and guide this process with heart and integrity.
Join Elisha, Fraser and guest senior facilitators from a range of lineages, to dive deep into the ever-expanding spectrum of what is Yoga and what does it take to teach Yoga effectively to others. For years, the team from KAI YOGA have dedicated their lives to helping others transform theirs. It is Elisha and Fraser's highest intention to develop teacher's of the highest standard and empower them to do the same - to awaken to their personal power, to honour their own shadows and to share their unique story wholeheartedly.
This training truly is a transformational journey of self discovery. You will gain knowledge, experience and understanding that will not only inspire your practice, but give you great confidence to teach. Involved will be a thorough exploration of yoga, anatomy, physiology, pranayama & philosophy. Elisha and Fraser have a natural gift for explaining the traditional in a way that is not over whelming. However, the program is not only theory, it is very much experiential and practical. There will be ample time dedicated to active practice teaching, giving you the time and tools to find your voice and learn 'how' to teach - this is an invaluable part of the training and is the most impactful aspect to both personal and professional development. This training is perfect for anyone wishing to bridge the gap between being a student and becoming an impressionable, powerful teacher.
This course is a registered 200 hour Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training Program, delivered part time. It has been specifically designed to suit those with family commitments, full time work obligations or have other commitments during the week as training days will be allocated Friday afternoons - Sunday afternoons, with a 3 day residential retreat.
KAI YOGA is a boutique studio that blossomed out of Fraser and Elisha's craving to connect with community, without compromising quality. They believe quality is more important than quantity for authentic connections and true growth. To stay aligned with this philosophy, trainings will be held within an intimate setting so all trainees receive abundant personalised attention.

"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
