Training Day Structure

Each morning is dedicated to your practice.

We begin with meditation, intention and goal setting for the day, followed by a themed vinyasa practice. You’ll simultaneously deepen your practice by working on alignments of foundation postures to that of the more advanced poses, their modifications, adjustments and assists, working closely with your peers. You will learn to work with your own body as well as gaining greater understanding of varied body types and groups, to gain a more skilful, effective manner in delivering a class or working with your own body and that of others. 

Each afternoon is dedicated to the study, text and theory.

We will dive deep into every aspect of teaching, from learning greater depth in anatomy, injury prevention, and intelligent sequencing for each region of the body, to using purposeful, verbal communication which is meaningful, authentic and precise.

You will also generate sequences and teach segments of classes to receive feedback and guidance.

Reading and Homework Assignments

After each weekend the student will need to gather and enhance the training received with further homework assignments and reading allocated, which will need to be completed and submitted prior to commencing the subsequent weekend module.

There is an exam for which a minimum of 80% is required in order to attain a Pass.

There is a teaching assessment process as part of the Practicum requirement of the Teacher Training.

Community Service

Each person will need to perform 10 hours of community service/ teaching.

This can be done teaching a Shine Om Yoga class, seva, and more. The instructors will help you with this.

Each Teacher Trainer is required to observe and log notes, for 10 classes with a local yoga teacher, on a class observation sheet. This sheet must be signed off by the Yoga teacher and submitted on completion of the program.

Why the Shine Light Teacher Academy?

With countless options in today’s training environment, Janet’s experience working with world class instructors including Kino McGregor & Tim Fieldman, Lara Bauman, Kathryn Budig, Matt Ryan, Sarah Ramsden, Alexandria Crow and Amy Ippoliti, along with over 10 years teaching experience and advanced practice, means that she can now pass on this knowledge, which is the natural evolution of the Shine Om Ethos.

Janet offers a high standard of instruction, with a rational approach to yoga, that has a balance of organic, fluid and intuitive flow from her dance background and roots. With her recent study on yoga for athletes, she also offers a more anatomical approach with functional based movement and a biomechanical focus. Her Teacher Training course offers the perfect grounding to provide teachers with the tools they need to create classes that are colourful, engaging and technically sound in both purpose and outcome.

If you are uncertain as to which method of yoga to study, Janet can help steer you in the right direction with her knowledge and background in the practices and study of Ashtanga, Sivananda, Ayurveda, Hatha and Vinyasa.

About the Reading

The texts will provide you with a nice, solid yoga library divided into the classical and more contemporary resources that are good to have on hand. These books represent a broad and balanced perspective on the roots of yoga and related systems of philosophical/spiritual inquiry.

This list of books may be a little overwhelming but, as you look at the homework and list of readings, you’ll see that you are not required to read the books in their entirety. It’s more important that you, and your peers, are able to reference these readings to invoke fruitful discussions during the course of the program. It’s always helpful to read sections of these books from time to time as you grow and develop your skills as a Yoga Teacher. You can, of course, complete one or more books, if you have time during or after the program has completed.

You will be part of a highly practical, supportive and professional environment.

When you leave this training, you will be prepared to teach a foundation class.
