Teacher Training | Professional Development

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand” (Confucius)

At YOGAZEIT the core of our trainings and Professional Development is the evidence-based curriculum and resources provided by Yoga Ed.

Since 1999 thousands of individuals have been certified in the art and science of integrating yoga into educational environments through the Yoga Ed. curriculum.

On the basis of evidence based trainings, we envision a future where schools are seedbeds of health and happiness. Where educators coach and embody lifelong wellbeing through dynamic teaching. Where students learn life skills to cultivate mind-body fitness in tandem with academic success. 

Regina Cruickshank from YOGAZEIT is Australia’s exclusive Trainer for Yoga Ed., and has seen the power of practice first hand. Hundreds of educators, health professional, parents and school communities across Western Australia have embraced a Yoga and Mindfulness philosophy, supporting wellbeing for whole school communities. 

All our Teacher Trainings have strictly limited participant numbers to support maximum learning outcomes. You will graduate as a certified Children’s or Teens Yoga Teacher and will be able to start teaching following the training. Please contact us if you’ve got any questions or we can support you on your journey.

Professional Development | Tools for Teachers

This 4 HOUR Professional Development workshop empowers participants to effectively utilise 5-15 minute yoga sessions, or “yoga breaks,” to increase self-awareness and self-regulation for students and teachers alike.

This workshop is designed to help you get started introducing chair yoga exercises as brain breaks for you and your students. Our chair yoga exercises are simple, evidence-based tools for your classroom to quickly reduce stress and increase focus.

Our chair yoga workshop is perfect for:

  • Classroom teachers who would like to learn easy-to-use brain breaks with their students
  • Counsellors introducing stress reduction and self-regulation techniques
  • Parents seeking simple mindfulness techniques to share with their kids

No experience necessary.

Focus: Ages 3 to 18 / Grades Pre-K to 12th

Robyn – Primary School Teacher

Regina was awesome. Loved the way she modeled the techniques as if we would do it with children. Also great that she gave time for us to practice in a non-threatening way. I started the techniques straight after attending the PD. The Kids loved it.

I did YOGAZEIT's Teacher course in January 2019. I have been holding 2 yoga sessions a week with our students in their play time, its been so lovely to see the kids come running to the hall to do yoga on these days! Now we're looking at implementing a program for the whole school. It's been great!

It’s the most structured, practical yet theoretical course I’ve been on. Good balance between practice, theory and reflection time. I feel so confident to actually run a class now which is a good reflection on the material.
