Our Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Trainings offer yoga as a complete healing system. We go in depth into the philosophy and practice of yoga, exploring ancient texts, physical and energetic anatomy, self-inquiry work and teaching methodology.
In our experience yoga provides the tools for empowerment and conscious transformation. We believe the practice of yoga has the power to make a postive change in the world.
WHY STUDY WITH BBE?
We study the physical practice of yoga (asana) through Vinyasa and Hatha style appraoches.
Our style of teaching has evolved from exposure to many talented and powerful teachers who have encouraged us to not only focus on the physical, but also to dive deep into philosophy and adapt it for modern day living.
The subtle, unexplainable, and mystical is important to us. We explore the body from both anatomical and energetic perspectives, spending time studying alignment, anatomy, the chakras, and the power of the breath.
As well as all the standard material, we have exciting extras on topics such as; the menstrual cycle, mind-body nutrition, ayurveda and feminine business approaches.
Your development is important to us and we want to support you by offering 1-1 mentorships for our students during the training and for 3 months after the course to help you realise your goals and support you in creating long-lasting change.
Do I need to want to become a yoga teacher to take a Yoga Teacher Training?
No! Yoga Teacher Trainings are the next step for many who seek to deepen their practice, understanding, and knowledge of Yoga. For us, Yoga Teacher Trainings are also a beautiful initiation into a deeper understanding of life. We include somatics, embodiment work, meditation, and many other tools for navigating and responding to day to day living. Many who take Yoga Teacher Trainings find that the spark of inspiration is ignited within them and the doors are open to study a variety of different healing modalities such as; naturopathy, mind-body nutrition, spiritual business coaching, women's circle facilitation, kinesiology, and so much more.
Do I need to have a high level of practice to take a Yoga Teacher Training?
No! We welcome people of all levels to our trainings. Yoga does not discriminate and neither do we. In our ideal world, everyone would feel welcome to practise yoga regardless of ability, size, gender, ethnicity, or expression. In our trainings we put a big focus on how to teach beginners and how to create a space that is safe for everyone.
I haven’t studied in a while, will this be too much for me?
The theory side of the 200hr can feel like a lot. Our main piece of advice around this is to not worry too much about ‘memorising’ it all. Yoga is a lifelong journey, you will revisit this material many more times, and each time it will resonate in a different way. You are not graded on your ability to remember anatomy, philosophy, or history - everything is an offering to you to deepen your self-awareness and knowledge, and the more you revisit it, the more it will stick.
Will I be ready to teach a class after the training?
You will have the opportunity to practise teaching almost everyday of the training. We work through the postures methodically, as well as having lectures on cueing, instruction, props, variations, and general teaching methodology, so that when you leave you already have all the tools you need to teach a full class.
"Yoga has shaped my life in ways I never could have imagined.
Through retreats, trainings, movement, and conversation, I humbly invite you to begin your journey back to your self."
"I continue to be amazed by the healing and transforming powers of breath, movement, stillness, intention and connection and am grateful every day for the opportunity to share these practices with others."
“Rachael and Melissa were absolutely wonderful. They are magic. From the moment that we began, there was an overwhelming sense of openness brought to the table by them and it felt as if I had known them my entire life. They were excellent speakers, teachers, listeners, friends, and compassionate souls. I feel that they challenged me and supported me in the warmest of environments. They set the tone for how I want to be as a teacher and a human being moving forward.
“I am humbled leaving this course. I feel healed in many ways; I feel opened to so many ideas I want to pursue, redirecting me on this journey; I feel inspired to deepen my awareness and education in regard to yoga as well as social expectations, self-realization, philosophy, and holistic health”
“This training has truly been life changing. I cannot thank Rachael and Melissa enough for their support, knowledge and love. I feel as though I am a better person after completing this training, and I am so excited to see how I will use everything I learned in my future.”
