Teachers of the Institute are people from a diversity of backgrounds who share a commitment to Yoga. The teaching staff includes people qualified and experienced in the trades, social work, the law, psychology, business, information technology and environmental management; and current trainees include people from the military, academia, consulting, full time parenting, agriculture, environmental science, school teaching and the public service. A number of the teachers or trainees began yoga as youngsters and entered into training during their early to late twenties, whilst others found Yoga later, even after retirement. This diversity in the teaching and trainee population is a demonstration of Yoga’s power to transform us, wherever we are at in our lives. It touches us and holds us as we step moment by moment through life.
