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".
"Life changing! Course is run by beautiful, knowledgeable yoga teacher trainers couldn't be happier with my confidence leaving the course, the content delivered was truly above and beyond all initial expectations.
Well rounded, in depth and beautifully delivered".
"Zenko level 1 teacher training has completely changed my life. It Is honestly the best thing I have ever done for MYSELF. Lacking direction after having kids and devoting my time to being a full time mum, I felt the need to find myself, to be a strong positive role model for my two daughters. Somebody they could look to and be proud of as they grew. There was something about Zenko that drew me in.
Knowing that I could become a member with the option of undertaking teacher training was really appealing to me. Needless to say it was one of the best decisions of my life. I am ALIVE! My relationship with my girls has changed in the most amazing ways! Life is beautiful. Thank you thank you thank you Zenko, you have gifted me the greatest gift of all. Myself.
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an amazing teacher training course you have provided. It far exceeded my expectations, and what’s more, helped me grow, and changed my life in ways I never imagined.
Initially I was doing this course to simply learn more about yoga, but along the way I developed my self-confidence, I learnt to listen to and trust myself, I found a bunch of beautiful like-minded people, and got to learn so much about yoga.
I have never been one to get up and talk in front of a group of people, and I’m still hesitant to talk too much, but I feel like I can confidently and safely guide a yoga class, and really enjoy it!! You provided such a safe, nurturing environment; the stories you shared of your own experiences, and the encouragement you gave to get me out of my comfort zone, over and over again, have massively benefited me.
Your knowledge and undeniable passion on the topics you each taught, made for a very enjoyable, engaging course. It wasn’t easy going, and there were times I wanted to give up (not because of you guys, it was just me, not wanting to leave that comfort zone, and doubting myself), but my goodness I’m glad I saw it through. It is definitely one of the best things I’ve done for myself, which is in turn benefiting everyone in my life.
So thank you so, so, so much for your dedication, time, knowledge, passion, support, and the physical spaces we got to learn in. I’m so grateful to each of you!"
