Australian College of Classical Yoga
The Australian College of Classical Yoga offers Meditation and Yoga Teacher Training, both on-campus (Melbourne) or by Distance Ed. We also conduct Hatha Yoga and Meditation classes, Satsang and a variety Workshops and Retreats that allow you to explore and immerse yourself in Classical Yoga.
The aim of authentic yoga is to awaken the student into the full consciousness of oneness with Reality or Universal Being. Classical Yoga embraces all aspects of Yoga, including Yogasana, the stretching postures of Yoga. With its physical, mental, and spiritual components, Yoga is the ultimate therapy that includes movement and flexibility but is much, much more.
Headed by founder Swami Shantananda (pictured), The Australian College of Classical Yoga brings to it her knowledge, experience, and wisdom; garnered over thirty years of training and practice in the Shaivite lineage. During this time, a profound shift of consciousness occurred. Such a shift brings with it a resilience and robustness in everyday activity, and a contentment which is constant whether the situation is pleasant or unpleasant. These qualities show through in the courses and teachings of the College.
