200 HR YOGA FOUNDATIONS- SYDNEY
Bridging the gap between interested, dedicated yoga student and an inspired, capable and confident new yoga teacher.
WOKE Yoga in Sydney, NSW is about waking up. Waking up to your true potential, and the life that you’ve been dreaming of in those quiet moments of reflection. We believe that the tools of yoga offer us a path towards that life. They give us the gentle discipline to focus the mind on what’s most important, to strengthen and nurture the physical body, and to align our energetic blueprint with source. Our 200 HR YTT will set you on a path of shedding the layers of what’s holding you back, open you up a new way of being in addition to giving you an internationally recognized certification that will allow you to teach others what you’ve learned, almost anywhere in the world.

Yoga Teacher Training FAQ
It’s normal to have questions, or feel unsure about embarking on your first YTT. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive.
Want more information?
Fill out the form below to request a detailed prospectus for our upcoming intake.
Q. Do I need to be able to do a headstand or crow pose to do my yoga teacher training?
A. Nope. every-body is different, and you are not required to conform to a set of arbitrary ideals to become a yoga teacher. Our yoga is focused on presence not performance.
Q. Do I need to stop eating meat, go to bed at 9pm and wake up every morning at the crack of dawn to practice?
A. Keeping up a regular practice is important. Nourishing your body is important. However, those things may look very different from one person to the next. Your YTT will help you to discover, implement and refine what you need to be a happy, healthy thriving human.
Q. What if I have no desire to actually teach yoga, can I still do the course?
A. Of course. These days, yoga teacher training is where curious students go to learn the deeper practices of yoga. If you want to teach great, if not - you’ll still get a lot of valuable information and experience out of the course that you can use in whatever way you like.
Why train with us?
We’re a little different…
In presence over performance
We’re much less interested in what your yoga practice looks like, and much more concerned with what it feels like, and how you relate to your body and your experience on the mat. Yoga is an inner process, which can not be measured by how deep your forward bends are, or how well you can balance in a handstand. The asana are tools that help us explore, and understand ourselves more deeply, not the ultimate goal in themselves.
In inclusivity, accessibility and fun
Yoga truly is for every-body, and we don’t just give this idiom lip service we actually live it. Our 200 HR Foundations Teacher Training always includes a module on Trauma Informed Yoga and Yoga for Larger Bodies. If you have an injury or limitation our faculty cares, and is super skilled in how to work with almost every situation. We’ve had students enrol in our Teacher Trainings from the age of 23 - 67 and we’ve loved them all.
In being open minded, flexible and relatable to modern life
Love crossfit, spin or the odd cocktail here and there? You don’t have to be the yoga '“type” to benefit from, or enjoy your yoga teacher training. Your lifestyle is your choice, and we never enforce strict rules or dogma - rather we share our stories, our struggles and show you how the tools of yoga can serve you, and your community, day-to-day in your real life.
In integrating scientific research and knowledge from other disciplines
Yoga has a lot going for it. It’s an ideal practice to soothe an overactive nervous system. It’s history and wisdom is rich, varied and fascinating. We love integrating the best of that ancient wisdom and modern science together in a way that serves your intellectual mind, just as much as your inspired heart.
In creating a supportive, long term community
We run a small, intimate yoga studio where you’ll never get lost in the crowd. Throughout the course you will get 1:1 feedback, support and coaching. After you graduate you will have guaranteed work experience at our studio ( should you want it ) teaching real, live classes to our members.
