Embodied 5 Element Yoga Teacher Training
Venue: Qi Yoga Manly
Commencing with the Fire Element Seasonal Sessions: January 17, 2020
2020 offers a much anticipated teaching program specifically tuned to develop your understanding and application of 5 Element theory in traditional Hatha Yoga.
Some teachers have learned the fundamentals of the system through Yin Yoga Teacher training courses…others are curious as to how the seasonal philosophy and practice works after gaining an understanding of Ayurveda. This course offers to take that knowledge to a deeper and more embodied level of understanding and to develop a unique language through which teachers can communicate the elements, the channels and the seasons they serve.
Join Yolande Hyde, one of Sydney’s senior seasonal yoga teachers for a deep and experiential process taking us into the heart of the elements as viewed by the ancient Taoists. Develop a skill set based on the 5 elements, our bodies organs and associated 12 meridians, and the development of a conceptual vocabulary to up level your understanding, experience and teaching delivery of yoga asana.
Minimum requirement: 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training qualifications or 5 + years of practice
Course delivery: The course will be made up of 2 weekends per season taken over a seasonal calendar year of study. This gives each student a chance to immerse themselves in the element – refining their perception and empathy according to what is at play in the natural environment at the time of study. Some lectures, where weather permits, may be held outdoors in those elements themselves.

I feel extremely blessed to have had the fortunate experience of undertaking my teacher training with Yolande in 2014.
Her depth of yogic knowledge and asana was a truly inspiring and life changing experience for me.
Yolande has a poetic and deeply intuitive embodiment of the 5 element theory.
Studying 5 Element Theory took my understanding of yoga to a new and inspiring level and completely changed the way I looked at my own practice and the way I teach.
There was no way I could return to teaching a class again without consideration from a seasonal and elemental perspective, it just makes sense!
Yolande teaches from the heart and her sensed knowing of this ancient practice made learning a compelling experience.
Yolande’s knowledge and passion of 5 Element Theory is mind blowing and soul enriching.
The teachings are profound and opened me to a deeper understanding of how we operate in relation to natural cycles as well as how to harness seasonal energies for greater balance.
Studying 5 Element Theory equipped me to teach from a space of deeper understanding on how we operate on physical, emotional and mental levels throughout each season.
To study with Yolande is a gift to yourself and your students. Any knowledge gained in this area of study will equip you with powerful teaching and self care techniques and new dimensions of awareness

I am so thankful that I followed my instinct to enrol in YTT at Yoga & Health Collective – I would go so far as to say it has been transformative in my life, it has defiitely changed aspects of me, my family, my priorities and where I am heading quite dramatically (and positively) including in totally unrelated areas such as within my career.
