Become a qualified yoga teacher in Brisbane
So you know you want to become a yoga teacher – but what kind? There is an impressive variety of yoga instructor courses in Brisbane, and close by at the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Byron Bay. Many yoga schools in QLD and NSW offer yoga teacher trainings, but there are major differences.
You need to ask yourself: What is the best yoga school in Brisbane for you as an individual? In yoga, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so you need to focus on what it is that you want to gain from your yoga course. Here are a few considerations to help you decide:
Professional certification: Is it a Yoga Alliance certified yoga course you are after, or do you prefer to be accredited with Yoga Australia? Check their criteria for qualification and ongoing accreditation on their respective websites. And check, which schools offer which accreditation. Here at Flex, we certify you through Yoga Alliance International, as this allows you to teach anywhere in the world.
Face-to-face contact hours: Especially for your first yoga teacher course, make sure you get plenty of personal time with your teacher. Some yoga courses in Brisbane have a higher amount of contact hours, whilst others partly deliver their course online. And whilst yoga retreat immersion courses are great, they also limit the amount of additional contact hours you get to spend with your yoga teachers in Brisbane when you get back home, for your ongoing development.
Teaching practice: Make sure to ask about yoga teaching opportunities during and after your YTT course. It is paramount that your yoga teacher trainers provide you with enough practice time so you walk out feeling confident to teach yoga to beginners as well as advanced practitioners.
Your yogi tribe: Becoming a qualified yoga teacher means to commit to a regular, ongoing practice. So rather than considering a studio for its TTC only, see whether this is a place you can see yourself being involved with long term, both in terms of proximity and in terms of the community feel.
Longevity: The best yoga schools in Brisbane have been around for a while. Do your research and check which teachers have been offering yoga classes and YTT for a significant amount of time and thus have the experience and depth to be strong mentors for new yoga teachers in Brisbane.
Work life balance: If you live in Brisbane, it might be a smart move to study yoga in Brisbane as well – for classes and teacher training courses alike. Ongoing mentoring and involvement with your school are a huge asset for a new yoga teacher when starting out.
Teacher or advanced practitioner: Yogis choose to attend yoga teacher trainings for different reasons: Some students want to deepen their personal yoga practice while others are aspiring to become part-time yoga teachers or are looking to transition into a full time career as a yoga teacher. What is your objective? And which school will best cater for your needs?
Yoga jobs in Brisbane, Australia and worldwide: As a qualified yoga teacher, the world is your oyster. Yoga teaching jobs are available in a wide range of settings such as yoga studios, fitness centres, health clubs, spas and schools. As you are gaining teaching experience, you can also teach on yoga retreats or step up and become a yoga studio owner.
A growing industry: Yoga in Australia has been on the rise for years now, with new studios opening regularly and more and more Australians starting to practice regularly. This means more competition, but also opens opportunities for yoga teacher training graduates in Australia to find jobs and develop their teaching profile.
Find your niche: As you are growing, make sure to keep training and developing. The best yoga teachers in Brisbane and Australia have all done more than one accredited yoga instructor course. If you take yoga teaching seriously, a Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training course can only ever be the start of an ongoing journey of personal development and continuous study. Once you have a solid foundation, further yoga training courses in Australia or overseas are a great option and many of them offer CPD credits that improve your standing in the professional field.
Teaching opportunities: If you learn to teach yoga in Brisbane, your local yoga trainers are likely to have a strong network in the Brisbane yoga community and can therefore open doors for you that lead to your first yoga teaching opportunities. A network like that won’t be easy to find if you attend your yoga teacher training in Bali, India or elsewhere.
Which niche of yoga? Yoga schools in Brisbane offer anything from specialty trainings (like Yin Yoga courses, Vinyasa Flow courses, Kundalini yoga etc.) to comprehensive yoga teacher trainings that encompass and draw upon different yoga traditions. Are you looking mainly for the physical aspects, or for a strong spiritual component? Do you feel drawn to a certain tradition? What kind of yoga teacher are you aspiring to become?
All in all, teaching yoga is an incredibly rewarding career choice. Becoming a yoga teacher is not always an easy path, but most yogis never look back.
If you are looking to study here with us at Flex to become a yoga teacher, this is what we do: We are all about delivering high quality, strong yoga classes, perfectly blended with deep insights into yoga philosophy. We will guide you to become a well-rounded teacher who can confidently cater for beginners as well as advanced yogis.
