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.

"I have committed to engaging my students in mindfulness and yoga at the start of every lesson, since participating at your Workshop at Murdoch Uni.Not only does it provide a space for focus and awareness for my students, but it provides me with the space to explore who I am as a teacher.I have been teaching for about 24 years, so I feel like I know when I have found a good thing! Offering a calm and meditative space for young people to be through the very difficult time of Covid-19 has felt very important. In the last few stressful days of last term, six year 7 students attended my class, four of whom said they hadn’t slept the night before. I led them through a visualisation based on yours where they go through a door. I think you call in “A special Place”. Two of them stayed asleep and one said, “Miss, can we do that every lesson?”. They then drew their happy place."

When I asked her what was the best part she said, "meeting the girls who were all really nice, the fun activities we got to do and Regina was a really good teacher"
She's already looking forward to doing another one. So we both highly recommend the Yoga & Mindfulness Workshops with Yogazeit. Thanks Regina and it looks like we'll see you again for the next one 🙏🧘♀️
