Course founder and main teacher Flo Fenton of Australian Yoga Life Magazine.

“This course will provide you with all the skills, confidence and understanding to begin a rewarding career in yoga teaching. Most importantly though, I will share with you knowledge tools and the experience of doing your life in a deeper, more connected, more satisfying way.”-Flo Fenton.

If you place a high value on authenticity, depth of knowledge, and maintaining the ancient tradition and culture of yoga to gain and impart all of its benefits, not just at the level of the body but beyond, this training could be the one you’ve been searching for. Flo Fenton has a vast array of skills and depth of knowledge gained over thousands of hours of training with the giants of yoga, and 20 years of teaching experience. Intouch Yoga Teacher Training will teach you how to work with yoga not just as a physical exercise, but as it was intended, as a way of accessing prana, the life force. This approach enables you to fine tune not just your own practice, but to make your teaching accessible, beneficial and unique to each individual student.

Intouch Yoga Teacher Trainings are intimate and personal boutique trainings with numbers less than 16 students. This  provides for what Intouch Yoga believes are essential opportunities to ask questions, and receive personalised instruction during the training, as well as allowing for plenty of time f or each student to  practice class teaching. By the end of each training, you will have taught at least one (and usually several) full supervised classes with feedback.

A strong focus on injury prevention, yoga for individual needs, functional anatomy and bio-mechanics differentiates this training and the skills that you will learn.

The course is offered with a sincere desire to make the transformation that is yoga accessible, and to raise the general level of yoga teaching in our country.

The aim of this training will be to lay the foundations of understanding both the subject and ourselves, so that we may then offer guidance to others.

The course is offered in a one day per week format – March to December in Suffolk Park/Broken Head.

What differentiates this training above all else is its focus on learning how to MODIFY the classical practice of yoga to suit the needs of the individual. Flo Fenton has long been known for her ability to adapt the practice of yoga using props and variations of the classical postures, as well as using supplementary yoga practices and pranic work towards a specific outcome. In this way those with physical limitations, injuries or deeper health issues are able to safely and beneficially use yoga as a tool towards optimal health and well-being. This ability to adapt the practice to suit individual needs was at the heart of the teachings of Sri T Krishnamacharya, the teacher of BKS Iyengar, Sri K Pattbhi Jois, and TVK Desikachar. It is the basis of what is now called Yoga Therapy.

” This teacher training has opened up a whole new world of knowledge and practices and ways of effecting positive change in my body and mind – something I will forever be grateful for. I’ve developed patience for myself and others, the ability to enjoy time off without feeling guilty or inadequate, the ability to be fully present in this moment without always planning for future moments, and the skill of acceptance.”

Lil, Graduate 2019

“This teacher training has been so life changing and affirming for me. Developing a regular home practice of not only asana but also pranayama and meditation has given me so many tools to see through every day, and a new understanding of myself. A wonderful nine months gestation with the birth of a brave new me.
Thankyou from my heart.”

Nic, Graduate 2019

” For me, the Intouch Yoga Teacher Training has been a journey of personal transformation. It has given me a comprehensive intellectual and experiential understanding of exactly how the yogic breath techniques work to calm the nervous system and how together with asana and meditation this ancient practice of yoga provides a comprehensive approach to healing the body, mind and emotions – a powerful tool of personal transformation that I hope to offer to others.”

Jacqui, Graduate 2019

“Dear Flo,

I wanted to write you to tell you that I am so happy with how the teacher training went last month. I have wanted to do this for several years now and feel so lucky that I decided on your teacher training. I learned so much about yoga and you inspired me to learn more than I thought possible in the time! Your teaching and the teaching of the other instructors that were part of the course have inspired me to keep learning and deepening my understanding of yoga.

Thanks again for all of the work that you put into making our teacher training experience so amazing. It was fabulous and beat everyone in the class? expectations”.

“I researched the options thoroughly before making a choice of schools- and even though I have many schools in my vicinity (Melbourne) I still decided to travel to attend the training. Intouch Yoga Teacher Training ticked all boxes! I wanted to do an intensive training, but one month off work was not possible. The 2 x 2 weeks was very achievable. Flo came highly recommended from my yoga instructor, and I could immediately see why. Flo is an amazing teacher with such an abundance of knowledge and energy! By the end of the first 2 weeks I felt so much more focused and re energised. I?m now half way through my yoga study and am really looking forward to getting back to Byron Bay for the second half. I highly recommend Intouch Yoga Byron Bay to anyone wanting to study Yoga. Flo is a fabulous teacher, the location is superb and food amazing”.
