"As I am doing my Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy in the year of Covid19 in 2020, almost all of the modules are being delivered online via Zoom. In spite of the imaginable limitations, I can say that I am learning and training as much as I can, perhaps equal to or almost as well as actual classroom-like training."

"I have really loved this course overall as well as every module and teacher. There is so much depth and detail to yoga, and I feel this course is helping me create deeper and stronger connections."

"Trish David is amazing in her knowledge and experience as well as in the way she changed the Applied Yoga Therapy module to online teaching due to covid-19. To get all of this content in and still take good care of us all so I was able to leave inspired, tired, happy and not exhausted. Even 5 days later I’m still highly motivated and haven’t stopped researching and learning."

“I just wanted to thank you and Liz Williams so much for the Functional Anatomy module.  It was incredible.  I learnt so much and the way Liz made everything relevant to yoga practice was so inspiring. The standard of training was outstanding.  I was not sure how learning such important work was going to go on Zoom, yet everything ran smoothly and was so professionally presented. I did not feel isolated for one moment – it felt like we were all together in the room throughout the training.”

"This Applied Yoga Therapy module provided an extraordinary opportunity to delve into the application of Yoga Therapy. Trish David’s knowledge, teachings and compassion for people was quite evident throughout this module. The resources provided by Trish will be tools that I will continue to refer to as guidelines as a Yoga Therapist. This has been a truly wonderful course with expansive knowledge shared in each Module. Trina and her team have adapted and transitioned this course to an online format, which has meant that amongst the many changes occurring around us in Melbourne, we have been fortunate enough to maintain a sense of normality and continue with our Yoga Therapy study. "

"I really enjoyed Trish David’s depth of expertise and her ability to engage a group using online technologies.  It really showed me the power of yoga for enhancing presence and calmness in challenging times. This program offers participants with an amazing amount of information in yoga therapy and is presented by facilitators who have genuine depth of knowledge and expertise in their subject matter area. I highly recommend it!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga Therapy Foundations module and gained so much learning! Over the four seamless days, we covered many yoga therapy processes and models which we were able to apply to a number of different case studies, identify relating Sutras and practice our learning through client consultations sessions with other students in our group (‘break out session’). Louise is an amazing teacher with endless knowledge in yoga therapy and was able to deliver the content in an engaging and inclusive manner. As each day went on, I became more and more excited knowing how much I am going to really love the whole yoga therapy course!"
Jess Whitelum

“The zoom training was much better than I expected. The learning was not impacted at all. We all had a chance to interact and undertake group work. This module is a fantastic introduction to the course. Meeting the facilitator Sal Flynn and the rest of the participants was so lovely. Everyone was valued and included in all learning activities and we started applying our knowledge and practical skills straight away. There was a lovely balance of practice, theory and application. After completing this module, I really feel that I am in training to become a yoga therapist.”
Robyn Lewis
