Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Will It Take Me to Complete This Course?
Our new 300-hour curriculum was designed around meeting a variety of lifestyles, learning styles, and life circumstances, so that you can work at your own pace, in your own time, and complete your certificate in a time-frame that works for you. Face-to-face modules are offered several times a year in full-time or part-time intensives, so you can complete all of your contact training in a 12-day intensive, or spread out your studies over two 6-day modules if that fits better into your life.
If you are eager to dive deep into your studies and complete your certificate, you can begin your Online Study as soon as you register and complete all course components in as little as 3-4 months, and then rely on ongoing support as you begin your teaching practice.
If life commitments are keeping you busy, you can take up to 24 months to complete your course components, and rely on ongoing support throughout your studies and practice.

Fitness Australia – this program is recognized by Fitness Australia for 15 Continuing Education Credits (CECs). For more details visit Fitness Australia Note: you must be a registered Group Exercise/Gym Instructor or Personal Trainer to obtain Fitness Australia CECs. Fitness Australia approve the education delivered within the Scope of Practice for Registered Exercise Professionals and have allocated CECs accordingly to this program. Fitness Australia however don’t recognise the title of becoming a Yoga Teacher as referred to within this program. To be recognized as a Registered Yoga Teacher, registration through Yoga Australia or Yoga Alliance is required.
Upon graduation you will be able to access public liability and professional indemnity insurance. To operate your own yoga business/teaching practice insurance is essential to protect you and your students in case of loss or injury. It is your responsibility as an instructor to ensure that coverage is provided for each class or private session that you instruct. In most cases, to qualify for professional liability insurance you must be registered with Yoga Australia, Yoga Alliance, or another yoga or movement-related organization.
What if I Have to Miss a Session?
Face-to-Face Courses: Our usual policy on attending the face-to-face sessions is that students can miss up to 10% of the face-to-face training (12 hours) and be provided with homework to cover the material missed, and still complete the certificate. If a student misses more than 10% of the face-to-face training, attending those sessions at another course or booking for private sessions to cover the missed material would be required in order to complete the certificate.
Adapted Online Courses: All Zoom sessions will be recorded, so if you have to miss a workshop a recording will be available for you to review in your own time.
What if I Can’t Complete the Course?
There are some circumstances in life that we cannot predict, and if an obstacle comes up in your life that causes you to have to discontinue your studies, we can work together to try to assist you in completing the course at another time. This will be dealt with on a “case by case” basis, but know that we will accommodate our teacher trainees to the best of our ability.
Can I Take Just One Module at A Time? Can I Take the Modules in Different Cities?
Absolutely. We understand that not everyone can take large blocks of time away from work and family responsibilities to undertake training. You can take just one module to deepen your practice and begin to explore yoga. Or, you can take modules in different cities at times that work for you. See the Module-by-Module study calendar for more, and please discuss with your course coordinator to plan a schedule that suits your life best.
Do I Have to Be Able to Do Advanced Yoga Poses to Become an Instructor?
Students interested in joining a teacher training program often ask me this question, and the answer is quite simple; If you have found yoga to be an important part of your life and your personal growth, if you have a sincere desire to learn, and if you are passionate about bringing all the rewards and experiences of Yoga to others then you are a suitable candidate to become a yoga instructor. The process of teacher training will help you to further develop your practice, and perhaps this means that you will be able to achieve more advanced yoga postures as a result, but keep in mind that yoga is not just about the poses, but about a lifelong practice and an intentional state of being that is inclusive, accepting, compassionate and loving. We have had students of ages from 17 to 70 successfully complete the course and go on to become inspiring and successful teachers. To be able to demonstrate basic yoga asanas is important, but does not exclude teachers of differing levels of skill and ability. What is most important is that you can demonstrate the fundamental principles of yoga on and off the mat.
What if I Don’t Want to Become an Instructor?
Many students come to teacher training to simply deepen their own practice and knowledge of the rich teachings of yoga. Having said that, many of these students discover during the process that they do have a desire to become teachers, but this is not essential. Our pre-requisite for the course is that students have a committed practice and a sincere desire to learn, what you do with your new wisdom and experience is up to you.
I Am Already a Yoga Instructor, But Want to Study and Teach Vinyasa Flow
We welcome yoga teachers from all backgrounds, styles and lineages to take part in the full program if they wish, or undertake Module 1 for a post-graduate 150-hour Post Graduate Certificate in Vinyasa Flow Yoga (Vinyasa Flow Immersion).
I Am Not Sure I Want to Commit to the Full Course
If you aren’t sure if teacher training is for you, or if this course is a good fit for you, you can have a ‘taste’ of teacher training with the 2-Day, 42-hour Vinyasa Flow Foundations Module. Join us for 2-days of study, practice, and practice teaching. Should you wish to complete the 300-hour certificate, you can continue on in any course/city at any time to complete the remaining 10-days of training.
Yoga Trinity offers a wide variety of Continuing Education programs for graduates or teachers who have already completed a 200-hour training. Short Courses include Core Yoga, Mind Body Meditation, Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurveda, and Adjusting, Assisting and Partner Yoga.
