Hear from Our Graduates

  • Sally Flewelling "OM’s Yoga Teacher Training program really stands out from other teacher training options. After lots of research, I found many courses focused on teaching lots about yoga. But what makes OM uniques, is that Sandey, Fiona and Kylie keep the focus on how to help you how to become a truly authentic yoga teacher.

    The course structure and pace really suited my learning style - being guided and practicing at OM on the weekends in a safe, supportive environment; then during the week, self-study and time to reflect on what we'd learned. As questions, thoughts and ideas popped up - there was plenty of time over our 4 month journey to discuss and play with concepts, to try things out. I loved how we explored everything from Yoga philosophy to Anatomy to Voice coaching to busting out some dance moves!

    I’m so grateful to all the OM team for their dedication, unwavering support as well as sharing their substantial knowledge and love of yoga, to make us the best teachers we can be. I’m now teaching yoga in central Wellington and on the Kapiti coast and loving every moment! Namaste OM."

  • "The Om Yoga Studio Teacher Training course has been life changing for me.

    I signed up, not fully knowing what to expect out of the journey. I wasn’t sure if I actually wanted to teach yoga, but I knew that I wanted to learn more. The experience was more than I could have hoped for, not only did I learn about anatomy, cueing poses and yoga philosophy, I made lifelong friends along the way and learnt that yoga is everywhere (not just on the mat).

    The structure of the course allowed me to balance my full-time work with practice and study, and Fiona and Sandey were always available for support. There were also fantastic workshops with guest speakers, enabling us to learn about yin yoga, meridian lines, voice coaching and so much more.

    The training was so important in my own self-discovery journey. I found the courage to guide a group of people through a class and have and continued teaching and developing my own practice further."

  • "Om Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training is transformational. It not only offered me the chance to deepen and develop my understanding of yoga but it really pushed me to my edge and helped me blossom.

    There was an amazing range of inspirational teachers that held workshops – ranging from meridian lines, voice training to chakras and Yin Yoga.

    The training offered the small group of teacher trainees the opportunity to find their passion within the yoga world – whether we went on to teach or not.

    The wealth of knowledge of the teachers and the asana clinics assured me that I would be provided with everything I needed to teach. The opportunity to teach parts of public classes from the very beginning gave me the confidence to begin my teaching journey soon after graduating.

    The course was deeply challenging but Fiona and Sandey ensured there was space to absorb the physical and spiritual changes that occurred. It allowed me to look deeply at where I was in my life and helped me make some really important decisions. 

    Since graduation I’ve carried the inspiration off my yoga mat into each day. Yoga isn’t confined to the studio – ‘Yoga is Now’!"
