Level 2 – 150hr Post Graduate Teacher Training

Level 2 – 150hr Post Graduate

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Adjustments and Modifications using props, Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra


When: February 2017

Where: One Family Yoga & Fitness, Holland Park, Brisbane



Do you wish you could adjust sequences to modify postures for different bodies and differing levels of yoga experience?

Are you wanting to be comfortable teaching off the mat?

Do you look at your students and want to help them with their practice but are not 100% confident in verbal and physical cues?

Are you and your students feeling the business of life? Do you need to learn the art of deepening the experience of relaxation in the body, mind and being?

IF the answer to the above is yes, if you have completed the OFYF Core Foundational 200 hours Teacher Training (or a similar course with another Yoga Australia or Yoga Alliance Registered School), our Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in Brisbane offers an additional 150 hours of study, giving you a total of 350 hours. This course will enable you to dive deeper into your personal practice, giving you both the experience and tools to teach with authenticity from a place of knowledge and compassion. You will learn an increased level of awareness around alignment, building intelligent sequences with purpose and creating a theme that you can work into more complete practice in your classes.

At OFYF we understand and strongly believe in an approach that recognises, “not one size fits all”. You will learn how to tailor a class to suit the needs of the individual within a multi-level group, through guided verbal instructions and hands on adjustments, including modifications using props.

Understand how to bridge the gap between Yoga Asana (postures) and relaxation with Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Restorative Yoga uses yoga props to support the students so they can let go of the physical body to promote relaxation and deeper rest. These more relaxing styles of yoga are increasing in demand as life in the modern world has become less restful and more stressful for humanity. This practice is intended to be healing and nurturing for the body. Restorative Yoga is pivotal in the centring of your breath and body – aligning the physical and mental states by practicing stillness.

Yoga Nidra then takes this restful state even further to what is known as Yogic Sleep. It is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental and emotional relaxation. It is said that an hour of Yoga Nidra can be as restorative as up to four hours of regular sleep.

What some of the L2 Graduates said about the course:

“Tonight after class one of my students came up to me to let me know she has noticed a shift in my teaching in the last few weeks. She said there is something about my cuing that is just so spot on, and  that she has always loved my classes but recently they have an extra layer to them but she didn’t know what. 
I personally have felt a huge shift in my practice and teaching  since beginning my level 2 training with Lainie at One Family Yoga & Fitness. So it was amazing to hear this awesome feedback from my student!  
The main differences I have observed have been my understanding of anatomy and building the postures from the ground up. I have a new confidence when people tell me about injuries and am able to visualise exactly what it means and have no concerns to ask more questions to find out what is going on. I feel so much more confident offering variations particularly encouraging the use of  props.  
I could not recommend OFYF or  Lainie any higher. I am beyond happy with the standard of training and resources provided and can not wait for the next 150 hours of level 2 training! “
L2 Teacher Graduate, Katie Penley                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

“So grateful to have embarked on my Level 2 Yoga Teaching Journey with Lainie Jenkins, One Family Yoga and Fitness, Brisbane.  I love traditional Yoga, however for many of our students, due to life, most bodies are not suited to stringent alignments, everything makes sense when you teach to who is in front of you, helping EVERYbody find their connection.”

L2 Teacher Graduate, Angelina Malloch

 “Completing the Level 2 150hr TT with OFYF exceeded all my expectations. Lainie is an amazing mentor and very passionate about developing her students into the best yoga teacher they can be. I am grateful be be part of the One Yoga Family Community.”

L2 Teacher Graduate, Lisa Jones
