The Australasian Yoga Institute is Australia’s premier Home Study Yoga Teacher Training Academy. The Institute was formed in 1976, and still offers  a graduated program of learning.

When you graduate from our premier course (RYTA200/YA350), you can move on to the 500 hour course, eventually reaching the MASTER OF YOGA certification. When you graduate (at any RYTA level)  you will be able to  teach anywhere in the world, and our graduates do.  They can be employed on luxury yachts, and in spas around the world in places like Monaco, in Europe and nationally of course.

There is no need to register anywhere else when you register with us. Our registration is recognised by insurance companies. If you have studied with us, then we are your lineage reaching right back through the Gita Tradition. We have a lineage and traditions.

SATURDAYS 2pm to 4pm $50 for three.  ZOOM – TAROT TRAINING – MAKE YOUR OWN TAROT DECK.  A wonderful class.  This is not just about cutting and pasting.  It is about philosophy, creating a theme and a message, getting ready to print and market the cards.  You don’t have to want to be commercial, but even if you are doing them as gifts for friends and family you will need to know the pitfalls and efficiencies. ALSO – we have been exploring ZEN DOODLES.
