We are currently taking expressions of interest to provide our training courses in Geelong and Mornington Peninsula.

Practical Teaching Experience
From our experience, we believe it is essential that Teacher Trainees have access to practical hands on teaching experience throughout the course prior to Graduation. This is offered in order for you to apply and integrate the theory and practice of your Yoga studies into the class environment with confidence. Therefore, as a Teacher Trainee at Moksha you are eligible to be mentored whilst teaching Yoga to members of the public with supervision from a Moksha Academy of Yoga Senior YTT Mentor.
For Public Classes, each YTT is required to create and deliver their own teaching plan to students in a public class environment; this encourages each YTT to develop their own teaching style whilst refining their teaching abilities, supporting you to be prepared to teach members of the public post Graduation. For students undertaking the 6 Month Immersion Course, they will join the roster 4-6 weeks into their training, and students undertaking the 12 Month Comprehensive Course will join the roster in their second semester of training, approximately 6 months into the course.
UNLIMITED FREE Yoga Classes
As a Teacher Trainee studying with the Moksha Academy of Yoga, you are provided with Unlimited FREE Yoga Classes at the Moksha Yoga Studio for the duration of your course as a way of supporting you to deepen your existing practice. You are also provided with discounts in attending the Moksha Intensives. In our experience, whilst you undertake your studies with us, the Moksha studio becomes your hOMe away from hOMe, and we encourage you to make the most of this opportunity and attend as many classes as you are able during this important time.
As a Moksha YTT, you are provided with extensive, up to date, in-depth, thoroughly researched lecture notes for each Unit of study that includes a wide range of Yoga Research study papers to support the subject criteria where necessary. They have become an integral resource for our Graduates during the YTT course as well as a supportive reference post formal studies.
At Moksha, we recognise that Yoga comes from our true nature, and it is from this place that we share it. All lecturers at Moksha are dedicated, passionate, committed and highly skilled in their individual fields and are chosen to deliver the units and modules that are most in-line with their training and experience of Yoga and their other complimentary academic studies. All our Lecturers share their extensive knowledge of Yoga according to their own hands on teaching experience and their own studies in their specialised field.

They live and love Yoga, and have a strong desire to share their knowledge of this transformational practice with others.
