Gita Gold Diploma Hatha Teacher Training
Gita Yoga offers a holistic approach which includes physical (hatha) yoga, meditation, pranayama, progressive yoga relaxation, and philosophy. It is built around an understanding of the endocrine system, which is severely under pressure in today's high-presssure world, and which bears a direct relation to the major energy centres (or chakras). Balance in this is key to optimal living. It changes lives!
For the last 35 years at Gita we have been training teachers in our Gita Gold Diploma Course. These teachers, more than 430, have taught locally and all over the world. Everywhere they teach, they are making a difference in our currently troubled world. It is incredibly uplifting to be able to give a life purpose and direction as well as improve your health and wellbeing.
Gita Teacher Training is not for the faint-hearted. It is no ‘quick fix’, as it spans 15 months of solid work.
Gita Teacher Training will change your life – do not imagine it won’t! You cannot undergo intense learning and development without causing some other changes in your life – whether these be in health, attitudes, approaches to people, or any other area the Universe thinks you need to adjust to be of use to humanity!
If you feel called to make a difference with your life, no matter what your age or fitness level, Gita Teacher Training could be for you. Our teachers worldwide are making a superb contribution. You may like to talk with one you know and hear their perspective on the Course.
Gita Yoga has been taught here in Melbourne since 1954, so it is well road-tested for our modern day times and pressures.
Teacher Training will give you the tools to make a difference to your own life and to the lives of others.
Gita-trained teachers are highly respected and much sought after for their quality of teaching and reliability.
The Gita Gold Diploma is registered with Yoga Australia and is recognised world-wide as a premier teaching qualification.
Teacher Training at Gita is a wonderfully rewarding Journey, incredibly satisfying on many levels, whether you intend to teach – or just to fine tune your life more fully. There is so much personal growth, and you make like-minded friends for life.
It is a joy and a privilege to be able to teach and make a difference to people’s lives.
You will be learning with Australia’s first full time Yoga Centre, and the originators of yoga teacher training courses in Australia.
