Let our passion be your inspiration!
We love helping others improve their Yoga teaching skills and understanding. Through our comprehensive program of Yoga Teacher Training courses, we aim to inspire students at all levels and guide them into teaching with confidence and clarity.
We like to think that our open and innovative approach to teaching makes our Yoga Teacher Training program a little different than the rest.

Training to meet Your Needs!
Our Yoga Teacher Training courses are designed to nourish and support your evolution and changing needs as a Yoga Teacher and practitioner over your lifetime.
Teach what is inside you.
Not as it applies to you, to yourself,
but as it applies to the other.
Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888 – 1989) was an Indian yogi, Ayurvedic healer and scholar who came to be known as The Father of Modern Yoga.
As the inspiring teacher of such modern greats such as BKS Iyengar (Iyengar Yoga), K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga), Indra Devi, and his son, TKV Desikachar, no other person had a greater impact on the evolution and modernisation of Yoga during the 20th century.
Krishnamacharya’s fundamental belief was that the practices of Yoga must be adapted to meet each student’s individual needs (viniyoga), so that Yoga could be truly accessible to all.
The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.
TKV Desikachar (bn. 1938) continued the legacy of his father, Krishnamacharya.
In 1976 he founded the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) in Chennai, India, now renowned as a centre of excellence in Yoga and Healing. Desikachar has been teaching and inspiring yogins for more than 50 years in person and through the many books he wrote, especially the classic text, Heart of Yoga.
It is mostly through the work of Desikachar and his many students worldwide that Yoga Therapy (the personal application of Yoga techniques) has spread and gained acceptance, even in cynical western medical circles.
Committed to Your Evolution
You are personally invited to join us on our fabulous adventures through the history, philosophy, theory and practices of teaching Yoga.
What you discover on your travels may well surprise you, as every step forward takes you deeper into the layers of your authentic self.
Our Yoga Teacher Training courses are all registered with Yoga Australia and are specifically designed to allow you to become a YA member (or upgrade to a higher level).
Becoming a member of YA can help you start teaching as it improves your position with employers, insurers and venues.
We don’t actually think that we are going to give you anything on this course. We believe that you’ve already got everything you need deep down inside you. What we will help you to do is help you strip away the misperceptions that get in the way of your Inner Teacher. This brings about a very different attitude in practice, and we hope you’ll see the difference in the way we teach.
We believe that Yoga is for everyone, regardless of physical ability or fitness levels, or any other apparently limiting factor. Our courses offer deep and broad explorations of Yoga practice in order to facilitate your evolution as a complete teacher, capable of teaching something useful to every student who asks. Together we will explore the full spectrum of Yoga practices that are often missing from Teacher Trainings that focus on the superficial aspects that resemble exercise, contortionism and gymnastics.
We’ll help you to unfold a unique and very personal experience as we enjoy the many different practices of Yoga together. Of course we’ll work explore all the theory behind those practices, but in Yoga most of the knowing is found in the doing, so get ready to be amazed at the new inner world your new commitment to personal practice will reveal.
We know that everyone who walks through our doors is an individual, and that the kind of changes you’ll go through during our courses can be tough (trust us, we’ve all been there!). That’s why you’ll have a personal mentor throughout your course (and maybe beyond) whose role is to support you and cater for your individual needs in training and personal practice.
You want to be an inspiration to your students, right? We believe that begins with our tutors engaging your interest and inspiring your actions, so we make every effort to be sure that the people teaching you are the best. Our tutors not only have decades of experience in teaching classes and teacher trainees, they are dedicated practitioners who teach from a depth of understanding that only comes from the commitment of daily practice.
Our Yoga Teacher Training program is based in the Trikaya Yoga studio at 7 Lorrean Avenue, Brighton East 3187.
The lead tutors for all our Yoga Teacher Training courses are Kelly Davies and Scott Rennie, who have been studied in the Krishnamacharya tradition since 2004. Kelly is a Senior Registered Teachers with Yoga Australia, and both Scott and Kelly tutored on Yoga Teacher Training courses since 2006 (Kelly in Australia, and Scott in the UK) before starting to work together in 2015. They will be joined on each course by other guest tutors whose expertise and skills are relevant to specific course content.
We are always happy to consider new destinations and venues for our courses, so if any of these prospective courses may suit your training needs, please get in touch to register your interest (even if you do not live within distance to be able to travel to them). As well as the possibility of running a course in your location if you can gather enough people, we are currently exploring the practicalities of online training courses through the internet.
If you reckon one of our courses is just what you need, then let us know about it. There’s no rush to commit, but it’s good to get to know each other and see how we fit. So send us a message and let’s work out how we can help you best.
