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.

Claire, Teenage Yoga Teacher Training

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.

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.

Sophie, Teacher

"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."
