At Krama Yoga we understand the power of yoga to help you not just survive but thrive as you evolve and grow throughout your life. More than just exercise, we teach yoga as a way of living in which you become aware of the impact you have in the world, and empowers you to become an agent of change for both yourself and others. 

This is the philosophy that sits at centre of our practice. The word Krama in Sanskrit can mean “sequence” and when in the yoga practice implies intentional order, or practicing in a way that is mindful and aware. 

The training has been crafted with a specific progression. You will learn how to teach everyone, from beginners to intermediate and advanced. Over 3 months of in-depth study you will explore the history and philosophy of yoga, combined with the right knowledge of sequencing classes that incorporates anatomy and physiology as well as assists to develop and teach your own classes with confidence and creativity.

Over the duration of the training, we will educate and inspire each trainee with all the foundational knowledge you need to start teaching. The course is taught by Doug Whittaker who has each been teaching yoga in Sydney full-time since he was 18 years old, and whose knowledge of the practice goes far beyond the physical.

As there are many Teacher Training programs in Sydney (and beyond) it can be hard to decide on the right one.

Due to the length and depth of our training it will not be for everyone. Our training calls for those who have a desire to become a yoga teacher, those who embrace change and have the curiosity to look deeper into themselves and the world in which they live.
