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. Sādhanā can mean ‘disciplined’ or ‘dedicated’ and gives us structure for the 10 day training and committing to a regular practice.

This deliberate approach to our practice forms the basis of our Level 1 Teaching Training, which has been crafted with a specific progression to take you from where you are now to yoga teacher in 10 days. Whether you’re taking your first step on your yoga-teaching path, or as an enhancement of your current qualification, we are excited to guide you.

Over the course of the 10 rewarding days, we will teach you all the foundational knowledge you will need to start teaching on your own.

The course is created and taught by Krama Yoga director Doug Whittaker who has been teaching yoga in Sydney full-time for over 14 years, and whose knowledge of the practice goes far beyond the physical.
