Purpose of this course

Yoga has been shown to positively benefit one’s emotional, mental and social well-being.

This course provides the student with the confidence and skills, in a mix of fundamental yoga theory and practices. It introduces the student to practical experience in yoga asana (postures), pranayama (yoga breathing), nidra (yoga relaxation), meditation, mantra, chanting, yoga health, with an introduction to the basic study of anatomy and physiology, ayurveda, yogic cooking, yogic and life philosophy including the fundamentals of self mastery, concentration, leadership and ethics. It also covers the deep and historical origins and background of yoga.

Certificate IV in Yoga is the starting point and foundation for core studies, in a hierarchy of yoga education and practical skills. While it is the prerequisite, and essential for entry into the Diploma of Yoga Teaching, Cert IV Yoga is not a teaching qualification by itself.

It is also the common, first, academic year, and provides the underpinning and foundational knowledge and skills whereby students without any previous study in yoga can enrol to undertake higher education in the form of the Diploma of Yoga Teaching and Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching. Students experience a culturally rich, academically rigorous, integrative and holistic approach that sets them up for a successful study experience that leads to a wholesome, richer life.
