Teacher Training at Yoga for Life


Taking your Yoga practice to the next step

Have you thought about deepening your understanding of Yoga? Sharing what you already know with other people? Giving back to your community through our beautiful practice? Living the life of a true Yogi?

We are a growing community of Yogis in the Doncaster and Templestowe area who enjoy the learning of Yoga in a friendly environment.  We laugh, we balance, we fall, we share and we just love Yoga. And now we offer a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program.

 6 MONTH    -     200 HOUR    -    TEACHER TRAINING

2020 dates COMING SOON!


Our training is based on the very traditional and classical Yoga and as a practitioner of this style of Yoga you will learn to live in truth... that is,  to be okay with reality even when it gets uncomfortable. We will take a journey through the Eight Limbs of Yoga understanding why not only Asana (poses and movement) is important but every single one of the Eight Limbs are crucial to understanding, developing, deepening and finally experiencing truth so that we stop trying to bend the world around us to accomodate our preferences.

Yoga means UNION... between the individual Self and the Universal SELF... where there is complete harmony and peace, within, and with the world around.

This course will also provide all the tools you need to develop your own practice, get to know your own Yogic personality, which will make you a unique Yoga teacher, a very hands on practical approach to deliver, not only a class, but a whole message.

Feel free to join us even you you do not want to teach... even if it is just for your own personal awakening...

Julia moved to Australia from Mexico in 2005, she graduated from the Australian College of Classical Yoga under the teachings of Swami Shantananda in 2007 and has been teaching ever since... she's had her own studio 'Yoga for Life' since 2008... She furthered her Yoga studies under Duncan Peak in 2012 at Power Living Australia... She has mentored more than 10 Yoga teachers to help them attain their Yoga Teacher's certification and has guided more than 200 people through her Meditation Workshops...

What people have to say...

Julia, your guidance, support, encouragement and friendship has made this course amazing. Having to demonstrate so early in the course has given me more confidence than I could have imagined. I went into this just wanting to develop my practice of yoga, however now I have finished I look forward to teaching others the wonderful bene ts of Yoga.

Julia's style is about getting her students to actually experience what they are learning and teaching from that space rather than just knowing your material from a text book.This is what I was looking for in a yoga course and knowing Julia for some years now, I trusted that she would guide me in this direction.

It has been an amazing experience and I have connected with enriching and empowering people in my class. I am truly grateful for this experience.

You are a wonderful teacher, I love your openness, your unselfishness and willingness to share your experiences with all of us. The content of the Teacher's Training Course is well balanced on traditional and modern yoga which I enjoy the most. Your dedication to teaching and your devotion to yoga practice is incomparable, I have learned many great things from you and I am proud to have you as my teacher.

At the end of your 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course I now have an understanding of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Anatomy for Yoga and the Asanas. I also have plenty of practical experience to con dently teach a public course. Your positive mentoring and gentle guidance has been invaluable.

I am very grateful that I was a part of your inaugural Yoga Teaching Training course. It was a life changing experience.
