 SHARING OUR EXPERIENCE FROM 14 YEARS AS STUDIO OWNERS AND  20+ YEARS OF PERSONAL PRACTICE.

In 2006, we started Wollongong's first yoga studio and the beginnings of a thriving yoga community. We discovered a way to bring our passions together for a fulfilling career and help others live a happier, healthier more balanced life.

We still teach around 350+ students each week, run international yoga retreats, and work with students one on one in a rehab context.

Along the way we built an online yoga program for pregnancy, had two gorgeous kids of our own and put the theory of yoga to the test to live a balanced family life.

With our expertise in Yoga, Exercise Physiology, Anatomy, Prenatal Yoga + consistent personal practice - this is a teacher training that is grounded in decades of professional and personal experience. 

Let us share that experience with you.

Hey there - I'm Russ!

After 14 years as a studio owner I'm thrilled to finally be sharing my knowledge as a yogi, clinician + functional fitness professional with you in an engaging and fun learning way.

I'll share my tips on how to take the first steps to combine what you love doing for a sustainable career in helping others find better life balance, health + happiness.

Hey Lovely! I'm Deb

My philosophy is simple... Life is too short and precious to be wasted doing something you hate.

When I was 6, my dad committed suicide (he was a Vietnam Veteran). So from an early age I had a sense that life is fleeting and we need to make the most of it. I put myself through uni, graduated with a job I hated so (naturally) I escaped overseas for a two and a half years to  work and travel through Japan, Thailand, Nepal & India.

Soon after - I started practicing yoga. I felt an instant connection to the physical practice but was hooked by the glimpses of stillness and calm that yoga provided for my busy mind.

I was also surprised that my chronic asthma improved and I was able to manage the ups and downs of depression. 

Younga Yoga was born from an idea that we wanted to create a space where people could balance the mind and body and connect with others in community.

As the first studio in Wollongong at the time - it was a big risk - Did people even want or 'need' this?

Our philosophy is that more than ever - effective self care happens when you are supported by and part of a strong community. 

This is a training that will help you embrace your flaws, find your strengths + ask that you act with boundaries, ethics + continuous improvement for the service of others - skills you can apply to your own life, in teaching others, or as part of your job.

You'll learn how to sequence classes, correct alignment, build confidence + develop your leadership skills. You'll learn how to plan, break things down + develop greater self awareness. 

With us as a team you'll get the perfect blend of light hearted humour, persistent practice, anatomical intelligence, business basics & a step by step approach for confident teaching with clarity and insight to creating a life of purpose.

DEEPEN YOUR YOGA & MEDITATION PRACTICE

Recently retired, had a baby, or find yourself between jobs? Even if you're not sure about teaching this training will guide you through a rare learning opportunity and chance to deepen your practice.

The world needs caring conscious community minded people who are students of life and ready to live and share the values of yoga on and off the mat. Is that you?

You'll develop a daily pranayama & meditation practice and greater self awareness.

Even if you never choose to 'teach' yoga - you'll gain a deeper understanding of what you bring to the world, develop confidence, leadership, communication + facilitation skills.

Be the change you want to see in the world for conscious living.

LEARN THE ART & SCIENCE OF TEACHING YOGA

Are you already a yoga teacher - or want to become one? You want to teach yoga with confidence and a thorough understanding of alignment, sequencing & put all that into practice with confidence. 

It's not all physical! We'll also develop a strong daily practice of meditation & pranayama, through to a science based approach to alignment & sequencing with confidence and clarity.

You'll learn how to teach beginners, yet offer challenges for your experienced students.

This is a training where science meets practice. Where you'll cover all the essential bases to teach classes with confidence, based on our 14 years experience as studio owners. 

Develop your own practice and lead others confidently.
