At Mana we extend our values of providing a small group, personalised experience in lush surroundings and a well equipped studio. The Mana training is led by senior teacher Patty Perlman along with the assistance of Jana Jones and Martin Collyer.

Patty brings her knowledge and experience from 20 years of education, 12 years of teaching and 6 years running Mana Yoga Retreats. Her never ending study of yoga lineages, meditation and the traditional teachings paired with daily self practice and weekly classes provide a warm and solid ground for you to start your yoga journey.

Jana, a long time yogi, teacher and owner of Zen Yoga Studio holds a degree in psychology and has practiced Buddhism for over 20 years. Her wealth of knowledge in philosophy, alternative therapies and traditional teachings bring an authenticity rich with history and soul.

Martin has dedicated the past 20 years to yoga, dance and a diligent practice in the exploration of movement and artistry... which has lead to his career in Physiotherapy. Martin's comprehensive way of delivering anatomy, movement, contradictions and alternative movements for all body types is fun and approachable.

With over 60 years of combined knowledge in Yoga, Buddhism, Anatomy + Psychology you will graduate from one of Australia's most comprehensive teacher trainings. 

Our 2021 training is limited to 16 participants and takes place at Brisbane's longest standing yoga studio, Zen Yoga + Pilates in Sherwood every second weekend on Saturday + Sunday. We know through experience that keeping our group smaller with multiple teachers will allow for more 1 on 1 learning + deeper discussions.

Life happens, that's why we created Mana Yoga Online Teacher Training library for at home study or sick days, so you don't miss out on important discussions.

As a Mana trained teacher you will deepen your own understanding and develop a dedicated daily asana and meditation practice. You'll understand the traditional + modern teachings + the significance of the 8 limbs of yoga through practice, lecture, discussion, teaching and personal guidance from your teachers. Our Anatomy teaching is tied into each weekend so you can experience continuous hands on anatomy training throughout the course. Once you complete the training you'll feel confidant and comfortable guiding a yoga class with knowledge and heart.

This is for the person who wants to completely understand yoga from its beginning to now. For the person who wants to learn, be challenged, participate and show up. For the person who wants to deepen their own practice, even if they don't intend to teach. Learning yoga is a lifelong journey. This training will deepen your personal practice and provide you with the skills to become a full time teacher or teach a few classes on the side.
