350hr YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Read what our previous graduates have to say about our course!
The Stretch teacher training was awesome. I've met such wonderful people and learnt so much about yoga. It was a big commitment but one which I will be forever grateful for. Looking forward to more learning in the 350 hour training❤️🙏 - Chris G
Having practised yoga my whole adult life, and with a background in fitness, I thought I "knew" yoga. Though I never felt like I had recieved enough proper teaching or guidance and was operating on pure physical mobility and strength without conscious mindfulness.
But after an amazing week in early 2017 studying the Biomechanics of Stretching and Yoga with legendary Jules Mitchell, I realised how little I understood about the physical body, and the spirituality of Yoga, and decided to finally investigate YTT seriously and began to research options to study.
When Stretch announced their YTT course in late 2017, with my favourite teacher, Miriam, as the head teacher, I felt it was almost too good to be true! I had found a yoga mentor and a course, and I didn't have to go interstate or overseas!
Everything about the Stretch 350hr YTT has been thoroughly well thought out and planned. The course content has so much more than many other YTT courses, and the breadth of experience and knowledge in the teaching staff in Miriam, PJ, Mauricio and Nirvana has meant that we have had exposure to diverse and fantastic teachers.
PJ as the principal has been very responsive to feedback too, and is keen to ensure that this course will always be growing and evolving to suit the needs of the industry and the high expectations of its yoga teachers.
Personally, I have been challenged, awakened and inspired and can't wait to embrace 2019. Thank you PJ, Miriam, Mauricio and Nirvana for a fabulous year, and Erin for your administrative support, and my fellow teachers for opening your hearts. Much love. Natt x - Natalie K
I had been putting off my YYT, and finally took the dive when I moved back to Brisbane. Practicing at Stretch has been an incredible experience; inspiring teachers, amazing content and meeting other like minded souls. - Kirstie F
The Stretch Teacher training was an excellent course to learn more about yoga and prepare me in becoming a yoga teacher. I was really impressed with the amount of topics that were covered, from the history of yoga righ t through to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Everything was planned and organised really well and the information was delivered in a way that made it easy to understand. I really enjoyed getting to know the other trainees; this has been a great experience that we have all shared. All of the teachers were approachable and prepared to answer our many questions. I'd recommend this course to anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of yoga, or anyone interested in becoming a yoga teacher. - Paul S
I trawled the internet looking for suitable studios to start my YTT journey. Stretch gave the opportunity for an open day to learn more about what was ahead. It was during this first meeting that I'd decided Stretch was going to be a winner!
The teachers and facilitators were equipped with experience and skills from various places and came together to offer this to us students. The different personalities complemented each other and it was clear to see that the Stretch family were just that, a family.
I felt nothing but supported, inspired and challenged to grow throughout the training. Thanks Stretch team! - Emma E
I had been researching yoga teacher training courses 1 year ag o and debated doing a teacher training course overseas in Thailand or Bali for a month. But, it felt risky not knowing the teacher and people, so when I found the course in my local town and being led my Miriam who teaches at my local studio, I jumped at the chance and paid my deposit.
Doing the course has meant so much to me personally. I love yoga and the practice and teachings of yoga. Being able to deepen my understanding with Miriam and PJ and the teaching team at a stunning studio has been simply amazing.
I have been learning the technical side of teaching yoga, anatomy and biomechanics which is completely outside of my comfort zone. I come from a corporate background so a yoga teaching course is a jump! I have thoroughly enjoyed stretching myself and learning.
The meditation and spiritual component and philosophical component of the course were taught at the right time for me - right when personal events could have potentially thrown me, the teachings grounded me and helped me through what was potentially a rough ride. For that I am grateful for serendipitous timing!
Thank you Miriam, PJ and Team for such a beautiful course. I know it will only continue to grow and we do need more yoga teachers in the world! - Roxy A
I am so glad I found Stretch Yoga Academy and completed the 350 hour Yoga Teacher training course over a year in Brisbane. Super skilled teachers, comprehensive course content, extraordinary focus on individual capacity over remarkable postures.
I'm stronger, more compassionate and ready to teach each student how their body can be and feel with regular yoga practice. - Kaye G
Stretch academy has taught me much more than how to teach yoga, they've taught me the history, the philosophy, the physiology of movements, adjustments and how yoga can really be for everyone. Being so inspired by the teachers and really feeling included and supported I really can't recommend them enough! 10/10. - Isabella C
This course was fantastic! The teachers at Stretch have a wealth of knowledge and are so friendly and approachable. I thoroughly enjoyed making new friends, and learning in such a welcoming and supportive environment. - Louise M
The quality of the course was incredibly high--from content to delivery--and the cross-section of expert yet approachable yoga teachers and physiotherapist involvement meant a well-rounded program. The training was hands on and assessment tasks were interesting and supported high level learning, requiring a solid commitment from students. For those looking to develop a deep and evidence-based understanding of modern yoga philosophy, biomechanics, and practice on and off the mat, you cannot do better than Stretch Yoga teacher training. I have learned and grown more than I ever imagined that I would through this course. Thank you! - Leanne S
I came to Stretch Yoga at the age of 62 (recently turned 63) following a long bout of illness. Yoga helped me in my recovery more than I can say, and I decided to become a Yoga Teacher myself to help people believe in themselves and not give up hope. The teachers at Stretch Yoga are passionate about what they are doing and have never once made me feel that I was "too old". I have been guided and assisted with patience, and have grown as a person and learned much about myself. I have just commenced my 350hrs course with Stretch Yoga, and I am enjoying what opens up for me now. This course covers more than I have ever hoped for, and it leaves me curious about what else there is to come. Thank you to the Team at Stretch!!! - Dagmar V
I consider myself very lucky for having chosen to take my Yoga Teacher Training at Stretch.
Even though I was quite eager to get into teaching, I wasn't just after a certificate that would allow me to deliver yoga classes. I was also looking forward to the self discovery and learning process that would come from my yoga teacher training experience.
And I can totally say that the Stretch Yoga Teacher Training program met and exceeded my expectations not only in that sense, but also in the sense of preparing me with the technical skills needed in order to be a teacher who can lead a meaningful and anatomically safe practice.
The course content is very thorough and interesting. I got to learn so much, but at the same time had a lot of fun whilst attending the classes and going through my workbooks at home.
I also found it amazing how we got to have an experienced movement professional to deliver the anatomy module. When talking to other friends who have recently took their teacher training elsewhere, they all agree that they felt let down when it comes to anatomy and biomechanics.
Thank you so much for this incredible experience and for setting me on the right path in my yoga learning and teaching journey. - Karina A
