WHO THIS TRAINING IS FOR

AWESOME HUMANS

Awesome humans who are looking for self-growth and to deepen their personal development.

YOGA PRACTITIONERS

Whether you're a first-timer or seasoned yogi look no further to dive deeper into this heart-centred practice.

YOGA TEACHERS

Aspiring yoga teachers looking to deepen their professional development and turn their passion into a way of life.

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Health professionals looking to incorporate yoga teachings into their practice.

MODULE 1: YOGA HUMANITIES

Unwind the beautifully woven tapestry of yoga philosophy, history and ethics and explore how it can be transcribed to this fast-paced modern lifestyle. We'll get to the heart of this practice, study ancient yoga sutras, 8 limbs of yoga, yoga traditions and how we can apply this to live a healthier, happier life and inspire others to do so too. Topics include Ahimsa (compassion), Seva (selfless service) and Dharma (following your purpose).

MODULE 2: ANATOMY, PHYSIOLOGY + THE MIND

With this introduction to anatomy and physiology, we'll learn about the physical, mental and energetic benefits of yoga. We'll touch on the bones, joints, muscles, connective tissues, discover how yoga affects the nervous system and the mind, and how we can use it as a tool for mental health. This module is all about internal functionality, safe alignment and anatomically-mindful sequencing to cultivate longevity in the practice.

MODULE 3: THE PRACTICE

Dive deep into your practice. Here, we'll focus more on how yoga feels, rather than how it looks, and focus on how we can make yoga accessible to all students from all walks of life. As we find movement on the mat, we'll break down each asana (posture), meditation and mindfulness-based practice to help find ease and explore various anatomical and physiological principals leading to alignment, benefits, modification, variations for beginners to advanced teachers, use of props and contraindications. In this module you'll be participating in little bite sizes of teaching every day with teacher feedback to build skills and confidence and lear industry leading yoga sequencing

MODULE 4: THE SELF

In this module, we'll explore the self. You'll dive into self-awareness, silent contemplation, reflection, healing and personal discovery so you can shed layers and show up to the mat to give your very best version to the world. Learn what it means to be a teacher, who you are as a yoga teacher, your teaching style, and what unique gifts you bring to the mat. For this new beginning, we'll focus on teaching methodology, dynamic and effective teaching skills, teaching from the heart, making money with a purpose, creating abundance, travelling and teaching yoga retreats, running a business, and transforming this passion into a sustainable career.  We'll then close by setting some powerful intentions and manifestations for you to truly shine.

CORAL MAZLIN HIL

STUDIO OWNER

I am so pleased I chose to complete my first full 200-hour immersive yoga teacher training with Emma Ceolin and Yogaventures. Emma is one of the most inspiring, caring and skilful teachers I have ever met and the training she has created for Yogaventures is extraordinary. When booking it seemed inconceivable that we could complete an entire 200 hour teaching in 14 days without being exhausted and rushed; but with thanks to the most considerate scheduling I’ve ever encountered, and a truly nurturing and mindful teaching style and lesson plan; Emma and Yogaventures created an immersive environment that was both nourishing and empowering.

SOPHIE MACKIN

PSYCHOLOGIST

I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Emma Ceolin and Yogaventures, and what an incredible experience! Emma absolutely made this learning experience one in a million! Emma is a wealth of knowledge from asana, to pranayama, mental health and understandings of the brain. Emma created a safe learning environment and was able to reach a vulnerable side of self-exploration for all of us, without being confronting. Emma was approachable, compassionate and so kind, she went above and beyond for every single one of us in whatever way we needed. She tailored the course to each of us specifically and ensured we each got out of it what we needed. Thank you Yogaventures!

MONICA DANACI

STUDIO OWNER

I first went to Emma's yoga for anxiety workshop, which was incredible She has such a beautiful energy and ability to calm a whole room of people just by being in it. I then recently completed her 200hr yoga teacher training and I couldn't recommend her any more highly! She is one in 7 billion! Not only is she beautiful, compassionate, caring and positive energy to be around; but she is FULL OF KNOWLEDGE!! This lady knows her stuff. Both about yoga, the body and mental health. If you ever want to get involved and aren't sure, I highly recommend Emma and Yogaventures, they provide such a personal and individual experience which you definitely can't find anywhere! Thanks Emma for being you and for all that you do! From one very grateful student.

ELLEN JOLY

YOGA TEACHER

This teacher training was an amazing and epic yoga journey both physically and emotionally. Emma’s professionalisms, nurturing and supportive teaching style took me in an AMA, unfortunately, personal development journey resulting in an improved yoga practise and self-awareness. I was blown away with how much I have grown, so much so that I feel confident to lead and teach a beginners yoga class. Go for it- you won’t look back. I would thoroughly recommend Yogaventures teacher training.
