Yoga Teacher Training
Provide your students with a "Total Yoga Transformation"
Many years ago, the instruction of yoga was passed from teacher to individual student through a complete personal program that encompassed every aspect of the student’s life. These days, with the popularity of yoga resulting in large group classes, much of this one-to-one contact between teacher and student has been lost.Through this training, you will learn to bring a personalised approach to your yoga teaching, whether you teach private or group classes.
YogaCoach runs a 200-hour teacher training course focusing on learning to teach group classes. Building a solid foundation, this course will allow you to take your skills anywhere in the world with confidence and integrity. YogaCoach Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training is registered internationally with Yoga Alliance.
We’re now taking enrollments for 2017
Graduates of this course will be able to look at where their clients physical and energetic systems are out of balance, compromised by stress, poor nutrition and hydration and negative or destructive thought patterns and will have the tools to guide them back to wholeness.

Module 2: ASANA
Asana is the physical aspect of Yoga. Day to day wear and tear through compensations and less optimal movement patterns results in injury and/or pain. Breakdown in the kinetic movement chains – when we’re out of optimal alignment – creates interruptions in our energy flow and imbalances throughout our body. Our body functions best in alignment allowing us ease of movement. This module aims to restore alignment through the use of Yogic Asana (postures).
This component includes:

Module 3: CREATING A SACRED SPACE & SEQUENCING
Much of the beginning teaching of Yoga involves the use of Asanas, which
can exert a powerful effect on the body and mind. It is important that the Yoga teacher be highly competent in assessing their students requirements, the selection of appropriate practices and the clear and efficient communication of their application. In the practice of Yoga there are certain orderly groupings of Asana or sequences that effectively become modules within a practice.
This component includes:
- Sthira and Sukha the balance between steadiness and comfort in a pose

As International team Pit boss for Rip curl, it is my responsibility to provide elite services and opportunities to my surfing team. With his skills in Chek work and vast experience from other world class athletes, Mark Breadner provided the perfect background to improve my surfers way of living. His easy going nature, ability to communicate and lead by example method is an inspiration to be around. Since involving my elite team with him (Mick Fanning, Nathan Hedge, Kieran Perrow and Darren Rafferty) the results have been amazing. I just wish I had found him sooner.Matt Griggs, Rip Curl Pit Boss
I have been working with Mark now since 2004. As a professional surfer I am always looking to gain a competitive advantage, both physically and mentally. By Mark teaching me yoga and the importance of core and functional exercise, I was able to achieve this.Phil McDonald, World Championship Tour Surf Pro
At the end of the 2004 asp world tour I was sitting 17th on the ratings and looking to bust down the door of the top 10. I started training with Mark in late 2004 to prepare for the following year. We focused heavily on yoga as well as working on strengthen my core using functional exercises. The exercises were all tailored for surfing and with Mark being a surfer himself, we were easily able to communicate and locate my strengths and weakness. Through hard work I finished the year not only inside the top 10, but actually ended up coming 5th in the world.
The following year I had a slow start and was finding it hard to keep up with expectations and the pressure was getting to me. I decided to bring Mark away with me for the American and European legs. We focused not only on the physical side of the things, but also the mental side. Through mediation I regained my focus, found my feet again and shot up from 29th to 12th, through 4 back-to-back quarterfinals.
Mark's experience and knowledge has greatly shaped and improved, not only the athlete I am today, but more so the person who I have become. Whether you want to just relax, do some fitness, find some focus or be the best in the world, Mark has the experience and understanding to obtain your goals.
Mark Breadner has created what is arguably the finest, most authentic way to teach Yoga in the world today. Training and learning is up close and personal, one-to-one, as was the case with the sages and students of the past. It is as Krishna speaks of Yoga to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita when he explains that the reason they can be together so fruitfully is that not only is there respect of student for teacher, but there is also friendship. The whole person is trained, not just the physical body, but also the depths of the mind, all in the recognition of the highest goals of Yoga, the union of the individual and the Universal. I greatly admire Mark and his graduate Yoga coaches for bringing traditional Yoga to the world in a way that serves our modern needs without watering down the real meaning of Yoga.Swami J, Himalayan Swami of the Highest Order
