About The Hybrid Course
This course format is a combination of Online & In-Person learning. This option is perfect for a student
The Hybrid course is organised in 6 week modules. Module 1 will begin with 4 weeks of online learning, followed by a 4-day in-person block (Thursday - Sunday) and then another week of online learning. This is then immediately repeated for Module 2, however during the last week of the program, you will complete your final written exam online.
ALL components of this course (except the LIVE Q&A and the In-Person training days) are pre-recorded and delivered through the Teachable platform. This includes your six (6) vinyasa classes per week.
We are including a complimentary “Livestream Membership” for the duration of your course for those that are not near a physical studio, which means that you can do a few Livestream classes per week to feel that in-person vibe!
Alternately, you are welcome to purchase a discounted studio membership during your 12 weeks course for $349 if you do wish to continue practicing in a physical studio.
The 6 asana classes per week must be completed as part of your graduation requirements and tracked on your “Asana Practice Log”, for a total of 72 total asana practices, either online or in-studio.
You will have a sheet to log the dates of your practices that will be submitted as a graduation requirement.
There are 80hrs of in-person facilitation included on this program. These hours are delivered over TWO 4-day blocks running Thursday - Sunday (see dates below). In these hours together you will have the opportunity to refine the learning you have already done online, get deeper into posture review and get direct feedback / coaching on your practice teaching!

After You Graduate - Coaching, Support and Advanced Courses
One of the most confronting parts of qualifying as a new yoga teacher can be knowing what to do next and how to continue your development. This is why we provide our SuperCoach sessions at our studios to join large group practice teaching sessions to get feedback from our senior facilitators as part of your course tuition. These happen monthly at either Bondi Beach, Manly, Fitzroy and Adelaide once studio operations return to our pre- COVID capacities Graduates are entitled to attend 1 SuperCoach session for free as part the course tuition.
Upon completion of your 200hr Teacher Training, you will be provided with information about our Advanced Yoga Education Modules and how you can continue your learning with Power Living or you can visit www.powerliving.com.au and take a look at our Teacher Training section for more information.

Our 500 hour pathway allows you to start to focus in on specific areas of yoga such as yin, advanced sequencing and advanced philosophy.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does the course run?Each week, for the online portions, you'll receive up to 6 hours of lectures to study & quizzes to answer. You will practice 6 classes relevant to the study from that week. You will attend (via Zoom) a 1.5hr live Q&A every saturday with one of your course facilitators, this will be recorded & available to watch later if you are unable to attend. You will be immersed in approx. 15/20 hours of study each week for the online portions of the course. The face to face facilitation will occur over 2 four day weekends running Thursday - Sunday (7:30am - 5:30pm daily) These face to face blocks are in the middle & end of the course. To graduate you must complete an online exam, submit your supporting documents and do a practical teaching assessment in front of the Power Living facilitation team.
Is this course certified?Yes! Our courses are fully registered with Yoga Alliance & yoga Australia. Once you have completed all the curriculum you will be issued a certificate that you can submit to either organisation. Please note you will have access to the course material for 9 months and the course must be completed within 9 months to receive certification.
Can I do just some modules of the 200hr courseYes! If you are not ready to commit to the full 200hr program, you can purchase 20hr modules of the 200hr Course content. Doing these modules does NOT contribute to achieving a 200hr Course Completion Certificate. If you want more information about this please reach out to our Programs Team: [email protected]
How do I get the information?All through our Power Living Education portal - super easy. Once you enroll you will create an account and you will just use these sign in details to access all the course curriculum. You will also be able to access the course on your iOS device if you download the Teachable app from the app store - so you study on the go!
Can I do the course in my own time?To a degree, you will be able to work through each week of the online portions at your pace but, in order for us to support you and your fellow students optimally the content will be released weekly. To finish the course with us, you will need to have completed everything within 9 months of the start date. Our live support completes after 12 weeks. If you have fallen behind you can complete up to 9 months after the start date in order to get the certification from Yoga Alliance but our team will not be available to answer questions / provide support after the 12 week program. As part of this program, you are required to attend all portions of the face to face facilitation blocks.
How can I access the content?You will be sent an email 1/2 days prior reminding you that you can access the course material. You will access all the curriculum via the Power Living Education site. Once the course has started you will be able to see all the content, but must move through the course in order.
What happens if I fall behind?It's ok - you can do the online portions in your own time over the 12 weeks, but Hybrid students are requested to have completed all the online education leading up to the face to face facilitation blocks. If you do not do this, you will simply be behind in the material and we will not have the capacity to catch you up. If you do fall behind the content shared in the saturday live session may be confusing, as this directly relates to the content that has been worked through that week. However these are being recorded and uploaded for you to watch back at a later date.
Does the cost of the program include a studio membership (in-person or Live-streaming)?Yes! The Online 200hr Teacher Training includes a Livestream Only studio membership for the duration of your course. If you wish to have access to our physical studios (which we do not recommend during this course as it is a requirement to practice the 6 classes referenced in each weeks content), you will need to hold a seperarte active studio membership. No portion of the Online 200hr Teacher Training will require you to use our studios.
What time are the Saturday LIVE sessions and what If I can’t make one?The live Q&A will be every Saturday from 1pm - 2:30pm AEST. These will be recorded so you can watch it later. These sessions are a required part of your hours, so you will need to watch the session it's entirety.
How will the partnering and virtual practice teaching work?For the “Partnering” practice teaching during the online portions of the course, this is something that is not facilitated by Power Living. We will create a closed Facebook group for you to connect with others on the course. It is encouraged to do practice teaching with someone on the course at least twice a week and you can arrange this via that platform and do it via FaceTime / Zoom or similar if face to face isn't an option. Power Living doesn’t participate in pairing you up directly but we will give you all the guidelines and tools on how to effectively practice teach. During the face to face faciliation blocks, you will be in small groups and receive direct feedback from our staff.
Can I get some advanced training when the course is over?Yes. Supercoach sessions will be extended to the online 200hr students, so if you are local to one of our studios you can attend these sessions, once the studios are back to normal operations, these sessions will occur approx. once a month at each site. If you're not local, Power Living offers multiple short courses each year for students to up skill and refresh their knowledge after completing the 200hr course, you can view our Advanced Education Modules on the Power Living website.
Can I just join the Uncover and Transform Retreat as an addition to this hybrid training?YES! We hope to eventually get back to delivering our powerful Uncover & Transform Retreats once regulations allow larger groups and we welcome all hybrid students to come join. The combination of our powerful hybrid 200hr Teacher Training AND our Uncover & Transform Retreat is at the ultimate learning / transformation combination.
Are there any additional costs on the 200hr hybrid teacher training course?Only 2 texts are required, The Modern Yoga Book by Duncan Peak (recommended to purchase via iBooks) and Key Muscles of Yoga by Ray Long. Details of these are shared with you in your confirmation email when you enroll in the course.
