What our students thought of their Teacher Training experience at Zenko Yoga
"Being part of the Zenko 200hr Yoga Teacher Training has truly been an honour and life changing experience. The wealth of superbly presented information by caring, intelligent and deeply committed teachers is phenomenal.
There was maturing of my personal practice as I respectfully and knowledgeably pushed my body to new experiences. The philosophical gems shone light into my anguished mind. Sharing all this with a group of loving and supportive people was the safe and perfect environment for taking on the challenges and carving a path of soul growth".
"Completing my 200hr YTT qualification had been on my radar for the past 5-10 years, so when the timing was right, I asked for recommendations and Zenko's name came up more than once.
I'm very happy to say that the 6 month program exceeded all my expectations. Not only is the breadth of knowledge between the teaching team exceptional (covering the full spectrum from anatomy, philosophy, ethics, business principles and of course, the asanas themselves), the course curriculum was extremely thorough too! Our comfort zones were expanded from day one, with teaching practice running the entire way through the course (and not just at the end) and the lessons learned went much deeper than I'd ever expected.
It was such an inspiring journey to share with the other students too - watching each and every one of us grow in confidence with each month of the course (it's not surprising we've become more like a family than a class now!) And you won't come across a more dedicated and committed team of educators, willing to hold us up to the highest of standards and encouraging us to be the very best yogis/teachers/humans we can be.
I can't recommend Zenko, their YTT programs or their teaching staff (especially the head teachers, Mandy and Helen) highly enough. If furthering your yoga education is on your bucket list, then you can stop looking - you've found the dream team".
"I am not sure what called me to sign up for Zenko’s 200 Hour Teacher Training Course, maybe wanting to try something new, to challenge myself or perhaps it was a higher power calling me to it!
But what I can say for certain is I don’t regret my decision once. This course has enabled me to come back home to myself, find my voice and my tribe and has influenced my life in in so many beautiful ways I can’t even put into words!
All my expectations about the course were exceeded, the head Teachers, Mandy and Helen are simply amazing human beings, never failing or faltering in their teaching, always showing up and shining for us which honestly gave me the inspiration to keep pushing and growing even when I felt challenged and tired.
I never set out to become a “yoga teacher” through completing this course, I honestly didn’t think it was possible for me, but now I can say it is a possibility. We have been taught all the skills, knowledge and inspiration to get out there in the world and spread the yoga love.
If you feel called in any way to undertake Zenko’s 200 hour Teacher Training (even if it’s for self-development) I would say don’t hesitate – you will not regret it".
"I had debated about dipping my toe into yoga teacher training seriously for the past three years. I have practiced a variety of yoga styles over the years & when I relocated to the Sunshine Coast had tried a number of studios, probably subconsciously trying to find a good, solid place to develop my own practice and to learn how to competently teach.
I can honestly say, you would be hard pressed to find a more rounded yoga teacher training basis anywhere in Australia. Our patient and supportive teachers- Mandy, Helen, Sophie, Lucy and Lauren, have created an, at times, intense but fantastic framework. I've been tired. I've been overwhelmed. I'm now grateful after teaching an hour glass to a packed sweaty Noosa yoga studio.
I had no idea I would enjoy teaching so much... this was just an experiment for me. Regardless of your reasons for considering yoga teacher training, I would encourage to take the leap with Zenko. I am so glad I did and have made so many supportive colleagues in the process".
