"The Yoga for Cancer Workshop with Lisa Blanch, was a very insightful and inspirational 2 days. I came in to learn more both as a Yoga teacher and as a cancer patient myself so that I may have a better understanding and have the right skills to be of service. I am so inspired by the wealth of knowledge and generosity of Lisa and the shared life experiences of my fellow Yoga Teachers in the group. I am so inspired and I hope I can practice these additional skills soon and serve our community."
Trish David’s knowledge on all things is amazing and because of this there is a real richness to the content. She is measured when answering questions, clear and concise and the topic was really accessible. Trish is very nurturing and no question was a stupid question and she makes you feel valued. She was really helpful when I emailed her with questions and replied super quickly which I really appreciated. She is approachable and down to earth which makes dealing with her so easy. A fantastic lecturer.

“The Yoga Therapy for Anxiety workshop was fantastic. I loved Dr. Shirley Telles! She has a calming and stable presence that comes across clearly even through Zoom. I can't wait to watch the recording again.”

“I’ve done other yoga anatomy training hosted by internationally respected teachers. Nearly all focus on the ‘anatomy’, meaning specific areas of the body, some emphasizing muscles while others more on the skeleton. Liz Williams, however, looked at the body as a whole. How our bodies are integrated, including with our minds. If we only had one anatomy module to do, this should be it. The most beneficial aspect of this module is Liz herself. A true national treasure. What knowledge, what a gift to share this knowledge with others. Liz – please write a book on Functional Anatomy. It would be every yoga teachers go to anatomy book!”
"Sal Flynn shares her years of experience as a counsellor and Yoga Therapist in a wonderfully graspable and experiential way.”

So much information and wonderful lecturers to deliver it! It made Ayurveda so much more accessible and interesting to learn with outstanding lecturers with an abundance of ayurvedic knowledge and wisdom. Thank you Yoga Therapy Institute!
Sharon WilliamsYoga Therapist
"This (Ayurveda certificate) course has so much to offer to anyone interested in living wholistically. The presenters take complex centuries old wisdom and make it accessible for you to understand and apply in your modern busy lives. A powerful set of tools to add to your practice."
"The Certificate in Clinical Ayurveda has been such a valuable addition to my life personally, but also to how I will be adding value to my Yoga Therapy sessions moving forward. Rama and Caroline are living, breathing examples of the Ayurvedic lifestyle and their combined knowledge is phenomenal. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about this incredible science."
Angela VergotisYoga Therapist
"From the moment we started this course, I was able to start practicing and applying it to myself and my family. What we have learned has excited and inspired me and everyday I am taking something from what we learned and applying it to my life & feeling how it makes a difference already. I know what people mean when they say their inner fire is lit. I can see how it works so well with yoga therapy. Particularly the seasons, elements, koshas and gunas and finding a way back to balance for each individual. I really can’t wait to start applying it in this way to yoga therapy and gradually getting more into the areas that are newer to me (foods, oils and herbs etc) to incorporate those too. This was an amazingly rich course with incredibly experienced and knowledgeable presenters Rama & Caroline, who I am in awe of and feel blessed to have this ancient wisdom shared with me. Thank you to Trina & Miya from the 'Yoga Therapy Institute’ for putting on another incredible course despite it being during Covid times and having to move it online."
Esther BecchioClinical Ayurveda Graduate
"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."
Rebecca BettersGCYT Sydney 2020
"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.”
Silva MirovicsGCYT Melbourne 2020
"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. "
Loretta GeorgioGCYT Melbourne 2020
"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!"
Sally DenningGCYT Melbourne 2020
"The Certificate Course in Clinical Ayurveda with Rama Prasad is giving me the tools to look after myself and my clients in a more holistic way. I feel that I have more “doors to open and look inside” while I am working with clients to get to the root of their physical and emotional concerns. The course is teaching me to explore wellness and cause of dis-ease on so many levels and to treat the whole person rather than just bits and pieces as symptoms arise. Rama is extremely knowledgeable and is motivating me to take the “road less travelled” to optimum health and happiness. I feel this course is for people who really appreciate that the body can heal and regenerate and are prepared to leave no stone unturned to activate and facilitate that healing."

"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!"

“Sal is a wonderful, warm hearted teacher who is able to deliver content clearly, interestingly and engagingly.”
Alice WillenbrockMBYT Sydney Student
“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.”
"Having completed the Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy, I have the knowledge to confidently treat people with a variety of presenting needs. The course offers a high level of wisdom and experience through the lecturers and an opportunity to learn from your peers and their traditions. Thanks Trina for helping to grow the Yoga Therapy community and its place in the Alternative Therapies community."
