These modules and offerings (working towards 350 / 500 / 650 Hours TT) are designed in a way that allows you to join us with any of the modules, as you feel ready to embark on this path.




For teachers who already hold a 200-hour teaching certificate or equivalent, on completion of each module you will gain certain CPD (Continuing professional development). 

Please note to gain accreditation you must attend a minimum of 95% of the sessions live online. Recordings will be made available for seven days after each module but this does not replace the attendance experience

Idit has been teaching yoga and yoga teacher training programs for 17 years. Her main interest is in empowering teachers to find the teacher that already exists within them and to support them with tools to keep voicing and sharing this gift with others. People who have studied with Idit often comment on how practical these trainings are – really giving you the confidence to go and out be a great teacher – as well as offering tools for developing your own spiritual practice. In addition to being very practical Idit is a down to earth teacher who has a heartfelt wish to inspire and nurture all students into being the best they can be. Idit collaborates with different teachers, each sharing their unique gift, passion and expertise, and by doing so inspiring others to do the same. We will be invested in your success, growth and flourishing! Our intention in this training is to hold your hand and guide you deeper on your yogic path; a strong element of the course is that of mentoring as well as peer support. You will feel totally supported and nurtured throughout the training as well as being challenged to go deeper too. Finally, our trainings are perhaps best known for the sense of community they engage. We consider ourselves and our students to be part of a yogic family and we hope you will join our thriving community which is filled with love, enthusiasm, open-minded spirit, discipline and the tapas or burning desire to learn which fuels us all.

* You will be sent a private zoom link and workbook PDF or access to the online course portal in advance. The sessions are based in group discussion and break-out sessions so your live participation is appreciated where at all possible.  

* We will be recording the sessions as we lead them. These recordings will be available to view for 7 DAYS ONLY and are not downloadable, after which time they will be destroyed. 

* These recordings will not be available for the open public or for marketing purposes (your privacy and the integrity of the 'closed group' is respected).

* Please contact us if you would prefer that your contributions to group sessions are not made available to the group in recordings. 

* The purpose of these recordings is to allow you to review the content once again for the following week and repeat any material you may have missed or wanted to understand better and to open the training to our students and greater community who for whatever reasons are unable to attend the training in person at the days and times we are leading it.


Idit Hefer-Tamir  is the founder of Sukha Mukha Yoga  and the Director of Sukha Mukha Yoga teacher training (formerly known as Samadhi Yoga teacher training) was extremely influenced and inspired by Jasmine Tarkeshi  from the Laughing Lotus Yoga Studio in NYC and San Francisco, Katie Manitsas from Samadhi Yoga Newtown and Sharon Gannon and David Life the co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga.

While living in NYC she stepped into the Laughing Lotus studio and fell in love with Yoga. Jasmine has reminded her of her dormant spirit and the power of transformation that resides inside of us all if we only dare to believe. Since then her life has never been the same. Inspired by how much Jasmine has changed her life for the better she was looking for a teacher training course with the hope that she will be able to help more people.


Katie Rose was the director of Jivamukti Yoga Sydney and is now the founder and director of Bhakti Rose.  She is an advanced level Jivamukti Yoga Teacher and a Ayurveda practitioner.  She is also qualified in Kundalini Yoga and as a doula (childbirth support person) and holds the highest possible accreditations with both Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia.  She has been teaching yoga for over 20 years.  


Katie’s passion is in yogic philosophy and the seasonal practices of sadhana – bringing devotion and a sense of the sacred to everyday life, as well as compassion for animals and a deep reverence for nature.  Katie is a published author of several books including ‘The Yoga of Birth’ and her most recent book "Mindful Living'.  She is the mother of four young boys and lives with her loud and busy family in Sydney’s Inner West.

Accreditation Information

In order to gain certification in this training, you must have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training.

After completing the 200-hour Teacher Training (or equivalent course), our Advanced Teacher Training offers an additional 150 hours of study, giving you a total of 350 hours training.

All of the modules offered within the 350-hour training category are recognized Yoga Trainings that count towards attaining Advanced Teacher Training certification with either Yoga Alliance or Yoga Australia.

Yoga Australia

Our advanced teacher training takes you to Level 1 with Yoga Australia. Yoga Australia have a minimum requirement of 350 hours for Level 1 teacher’s certification. This means if you are a 200 hour graduate you would not have been able to register with Yoga Australia. Once you have completed our advanced training you will have completed a total of 350 hours and this will enable you to register with Yoga Australia as a Level 1 Teacher. From that foundation, if you choose to, you can earn CPD points (Continuing Professional Development points), through doing other trainings with us or other recognised training bodies to work towards a Level 2 or Level 3 certification. There are also time requirements (Level 3 takes 10 years to achieve) all of which are outlined on the Yoga Australia website.

Yoga Alliance

Our advanced teacher training takes you towards 500 hour certification with Yoga Alliance.
Yoga Alliance have two levels of training, 200 hours and 500 hours. Once you have completed our advanced teacher training you will have 350 hours under your belt – towards the 500-hour accreditation. To gain a full 500-hour certification you can then if you choose to, undertake an additional 150 hours of study from other courses and workshops offered at Sukha Mukha Yoga or a certified outside school in your area of your choice.

We believe that ultimately good yoga teaching comes from experience, practice and positive intentions. The accreditation body that you choose and the level that you choose to work towards it totally up to you! Once you have a 200 hour training you are able to teach – so in some ways advanced training is more about personal and professional development than certification and pieces of paper. However, with this in mind, we are more than happy to help to explain the ins and outs of accreditation and if you have further questions don’t hesitate to contact us.


*Please note that we do not offer any refunds. Payments are non refundable. Payment in part or in full confirms your place and is therefore binding.
