Tamara Yoga Teacher Training Intensives Ubud & Margaret River

May 13th – 24th 2016 Ubud

Tamara Yoga Teacher Training Intensives in Margaret River and Bali are each a big step towards becoming an outstanding yoga teacher while deepening your own yoga practice. Each intensive is immersion in yoga at a profound level.

Classes begin at 6am and conclude at 9pm. The rigorous schedule allows you to immerse yourself in the wisdom of yoga allowing time for deep growth. You will delve deeply into the tradition and culture of yoga in addition to learning the art and practice of how to teach yoga.

Studying in a retreat type environment gives you the opportunity to truly live yoga, and will lead you to incorporate this beautiful experience ongoing in your life.  In Margaret River our peaceful retreat centre is surrounded by the tranquility of natural Australian bush. Our outdoor studio in Bali is situated in the magical environment of Ubud overlooking lush, rice fields and distant volcanoes.

You can study one intensive simply for the purpose of deepening your studies in yoga.

If you have previously completed 200 hours of yoga teacher training elsewhere, and need further training to register as a qualified yoga teacher, subject to application, you may be eligible to enrol with us to upgrade your qualification by successfully completing one Tamara Yoga Teacher Training Intensive.

Two intensives gain Yoga Alliance 200 registration and Provisional Level membership with Yoga Australia.

If you successfully graduate from three intensives you will be a certified Tamara Yoga Teacher and eligible to register with Yoga Australia at Level 1.

Three intensives equal the Tamara Yoga two-year weekday or the weekend training course.

Between each intensive there is ample time to process the teachings and complete assignments and research at an in-depth level. Unlike other programmes that attempt to ‘cram’ in the requirements leading to information overload, at Tamara Yoga years of teaching teachers results in the best course for you.

To give you an idea from a student perspective, here’s some feedback from trainees from previous intensives: “My experience on Tamara’s Teacher Training has been transformative! I feel I have learnt so much valuable knowledge that I can apply to both my practice, my teaching and my life. The compassion Tamara & Julie have shown, along with their knowledge & passion for yoga has inspired me. I have fallen more deeply in love with the practice of yoga and truly feel more balanced and alive then ever before! This has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. Thank you for everything you have my love and devotion for life. Love & Light. __Courtney Walter

“I can honestly say that teacher training was nothing short of a transformational experience. Fantastic teachers, a perfectly paced program and a beautiful group of students meant every session and every day made us feel completely invigorated and inspired. Not only did my own practice evolve in ways I thought impossible in such a short time, Tamara and Julie’s practical teaching tools make you feel so empowered to share all aspects of yoga with those around you. You may be like me, with no intention to ever be a “yoga teacher”. All I can say is I thoroughly encourage you to go to a teaching intensive – not only will your own practice grown immensely, you will also feel totally inspired and able to integrate “teaching” yoga into all aspects of everyday life with family, friends, and at work. It’s no surprise that Tamara and Julie constantly bring out the best in the whole group to create an experience which is simultaneously totally grounding and completely inspiring. Whatever your reason, if you have any inclination to undertake teacher training, then do it. You’ll get more out of it than you imagined possible, and the contentment, love and laughter will stay with you and make you feel like every day is being lived to your fullest potential.”_Dr. Anna West

Well we have settled back into our lives down here at Injidup. Looking back now, I am very grateful for all of the knowledge and information handed down from you over the past 12 months.   I certainly now appreciate the ISHTA lineage, and feel that you have handed to the trainees, and new teachers, a spark of the flame that was lit a long time ago and passed down from Yogi to Yogi.  To me, the program was much more than a teacher training program. It all came together for me with the teaching of the ISHTA DIKSHA in the final intensive.  As you know, I was not sure what I had actually signed up for, as I was not familiar with your studio.  Apart from the teacher qualifications, I now believe that what I was also looking for was inspiration.   I am very pleased to say, that I was inspired in many ways.   For me, being inspired to continue learning and researching the material that was provided was an added bonus. As a result I can say that I am also now inspired to pass on this knowledge and practice where I can to help others to enter and continue to pursue the Yoga journey. _David McSweeney

“Having just completed my first Yoga Teacher training intensive I feel exhilarated and empowered.   I have learnt so much about health and wellbeing as well as profoundly improved my yoga practice.  Tamara and Julie are true masters, I am honoured and privileged to be their student.  A highly enriching experience, thank you!  Namaste.” _Margo Halbert
