Testimonials for Yoga Teacher Training
“I have just completed (2016) my Yoga teacher and therapist training at Greenwood Yoga Academy (GYA) and would urge anyone who is researching Yoga teacher training to seriously consider training with GYA.
I am a qualified veterinarian, remedial massage therapist, equine sports massage therapist and trainer and assessor, so was very discerning about where I chose to do my Yoga training, particularly after four decades of practising Yoga!
I looked at numerous Yoga teacher training courses and didn’t find any others in WA that offered as much as GYA. I was impressed and delighted to discover that GYA offered government recognised training in both teaching and therapy. This may not mean much to you as a potential student, but as a trainer and assessor, I am aware of the high standards, hard work, and accountability necessary to become a Recognised Training Organisation (RTO) for these qualifications. Becoming a RTO is for those who are passionate and serious about Yoga teacher training, as there is a lot of work involved, which is ongoing.
I am very glad that I chose GYA for my training, as I believe that it has enabled me to become the best Yoga teacher and therapist possible. The training is thorough, broad, varied and very interesting. The teachers are passionate, highly knowledgeable and approachable. The course is not rushed, which I believe is a really important feature, as the pace allows proper learning. Like many things in life, it is the journey and not the destination that can truly matter. GYA’s course allowed time to prepare, participate, review, practise, research, explore, question, experiment and consolidate Yogic knowledge and skills. I found GYA’s teacher training challenging, stimulating, and inspiring, and would recommend them to anyone considering where to train as a Yoga teacher.”

"I can highly recommend the Greenwood Yoga Academy teacher training program to anyone who wants to add to their qualifications, or like me, become a Yoga teacher and Yoga therapist. The course is so professionally presented, it takes in to consideration the differing learning styles, and covers so many areas and styles of yoga in a concise and compelling way. I can honestly say that I loved each class and I miss the class atmosphere. The assignments whilst demanding; all taught us to be better teachers."
