Graduate Teacher - 2014
In 2013, I undertook my journey to complete my RYT 200 Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training at 8 Limb Yoga in Mackay. The Teacher Training program was well designed and flexible to suit my needs as a beginner teacher. The combination of theory and 90 hours of personal practice allowed for me to build a solid foundation to begin teaching. The program which was offered by 8 Limb incorporated the 90 hours of practice at 8 Limb’s studio which allowed guidance and support to be offered throughout the process and ongoing feedback. The practical component of the program is an integral aspect of the course and allows for growth as a beginner teacher. 8 Limb allows beginner teachers to gradually enter the world of teaching with a supported program and strong mentoring from the Teacher Trainers. I strongly value the skills I have gained during my journey through the program and teaching at the studio.
Graduate Teacher - 2015
I had thought about Teacher Training for years. Watched several friends go through a program, but always thought I did not have the time, or skill , there was always a block in the way. I wanted to do it for my own practice, to grow, to understand more, to get a deeper meaning and satisfaction. But still, I kept holding on to reasons not to do it. Then Sue pushed away my imaginary block. Turns out it was easy. The Training weekends were full of the information I was seeking. One part Technical detail and two parts inspirational. Learning and practising with the other trainees added a whole new dimension to the experience.
My time on the mat changed, deepened, and at the end of sessions, I could see that teachers others would essentially be sharing my own practice. It was exhilarating and gratifying. The study and practice sessions were demanding, but worthwhile. The support provided for practical teaching experience was wonderful. I would say that I wish I had done it years ago, but Yoga has taught me that things come in their own time.
Graduate Teacher - 2015
Decided to take the journey into the Teacher Training at 8 Limb Yoga Mackay was the easiest decision of my entire life. I embarked on a journey like no other I had ever been involved with, but I knew this journey would be in a very supportive and inspiring environment. The 90 practical hours helped me to develop a strong and knowledgeable daily practice.
The theory hours were spread over 3 separate weekends, which gave us the chance to experience scheduling and teaching a class, in preparation for the final assessment. This whole experience really was amazing, not only did I gain a deeper understanding and love for yoga, I was able to complete this with very experienced and supportive guidance. I am proud that I completed my Training at 8 Limb Yoga.
