Frequently asked questions

We choose to not associate our training courses with Yoga Alliance. You do not need to be associated with this organisation to teach yoga professionally.

What certification will I gain?

On completion of the course you will receive your 200hr Vinyasa Yoga Certificate. You will be fully certified to teach yoga professionally both in Australia and overseas. Majority of our past students are now teaching in studios all over Melbourne with some even teaching in the US and UK.

How much yoga experience do I need?

All levels of yoga experience are welcome. You do not need to be an advanced yogi or need to be able to do advanced postures. A regular practice is recommended as the course can be physically demanding.

Vinyasa Yoga + Hip Hop Yoga.

What is Hip Hop yoga?

Hip Hop yoga is a style of yoga that we teach at Yoga 213. We play loud Hip Hop music during a vinyasa flow style class. On this training we encourage students to incorporate music into their classes and a component of the training will be dedicated to music and yoga.

How much are the text books?

Around $70 - $100.

How much work will there be outside of lectures?

We recommend dedicating 30mins - 1hr after each lecture to recap what was studied that day. Please note that there will be homework and pre-reading and this extra work has been factored into the 200hrs.

What if I can't attend a lecture?

100% attendance is recommended to get the most out of the training. We ask that all students are dedicated and put the training first. If you have an event that you must attend (family event or emergency) then a homework assignment can be assigned to make up missed hours.
