Samadhi Yoga has one of the most well regarded and comprehensive Yoga Teacher Training courses in Australia, now in it’s sixth year with graduates teaching all over the world, from Japan to London and Perth to Tasmania. The course has been originally developed by Katie Manitsas with the help of her teacher Simon Low (The Yoga Academy, UK) and inspired by Donna Farhi (NZ) as well as Sharon Gannon and David Life of Jivamukti Yoga NYC.

Over the past three years Idit Hefer Tamir has become in integral part of the training and alongside Katie Manitsas continued to develop and fine-tune the training program and content.

Many choose the Samadhi Yoga Teacher Training program as a way of deepening their understanding of yoga, others are looking for a career change. You can become a yoga teacher with qualifications recognised in Australia and throughout the world through the Samadhi Yoga Teacher Training program. Upon completion of the training and examinations you will be fully qualified and able to gain accreditation and insurance to teach yoga.

The training is designed to give you a comprehensive grounding in the philosophy of yoga as well as the practical aspects of teaching asana, pranayama and meditation. The focus of the course is to give a broad understanding of the different schools and styles of yoga – teachers may choose to specialise after qualifying. The course has over 300 hours of training, which allows a great depth of information to be covered.

The course is deliberately eclectic in nature and aims to provide a thorough introduction to the many aspects of yoga practice.  Students from all yogic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

The training is intensive and thereby suitable for those coming from interstate and overseas. A willingness to commit to solid self-practice, personal transformation and a dedicated home study is imperative.

Idit Hefer- Tamir, The Director of Teacher Training at Samadhi Yoga:  is a Samadhi trained teacher who has always been drawn strongly to Asia. She is a 500RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance and holds the “Advanced Diploma for Yoga teaching” by Nature Care College. Idit begun her practice of Hatha Yoga whilst travelling through Asia, since then she has studied different styles of yoga and regularly trains with varied well known international teachers including Donna Farhi, Sarah Powers, Simon Low, Seane Corne, Sharon Gannon, David life and many more, being inspired by their wisdom and their different techniques. Yoga has influenced Idit’s life and she hopes to share this gift with as many beings as possible in the hope that it will benefit others as much as it has benefited her. The kind of yoga classes she teaches are varied and postures are adjusted to meet the needs of her individual students accordingly. Idit is also mother to little Inbar.

There are several tutors and assistants on the course, all experts in their fields and all with a number of years experience in teacher training.

Essay question: Discuss what yoga means to you and how it may be applied to a modern lifestyle, remembering that yoga can be interpreted in its broadest sense – not just as a physical form of exercise.

“The Yoga Sutras (ancient scriptures written by Patanjali codifying the practice of yoga) tell us: ‘Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations in the mind’. In other words yoga is experienced when the mind becomes still and calm and there is a sense of steadiness.”
