And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." 
Anais Nin

We offer a safe and nurturing space for transformation to occur, creating a community of empowered and highly skilled yoga teachers spreading light and love all over the world.

About the training

We believe that becoming a highly skilled yoga teacher requires more than learning the craft. It is a gentle uncovering of the teacher’s unique essence and teaching style.
The story of your life becomes the poetry of your practice... the joy, the pain, the mystical and mundane. Your authentic voice will speak to your students' hearts as you share from humility and grace.
ou will emerge from this training a confident, grounded, amazing Vinyasa Flow teacher.
We invite you to open your heart to the teachings as you learn and evolve beyond the Asana practice. Experience your transformation into a confident teacher who commands the space during class, creating your own unique style and sharing your inner wisdom from your personal life's teachings.

With our ongoing mentorship program, we’ll continue to be with you every step of the way. We want to ensure you receive all the support you need to start your journey as a confident yoga teacher.

Still wondering if it's for you?

'I’m not sure if I want to be a teacher. Is this training still for me?'
Many of us are pulled to undertake teacher training long before we feel compelled to teach. If you love yoga and community, and crave deep personal growth and connection, this journey is definitely for you.
Our only prerequisite is an open heart and mind.

I'm ready to step into this training...

Why Yab Yum?

This training is so completely unique, you won't find anything else quite like it.

We want all of our students to have FUN as we explore the realms of the mystical yogic arts together. 
You will join a group of like minded souls who share the same vision and goal, supporting each other through moments of absolute heart exploding bliss and undoubtedly moments of inevitable struggle. Each group merges into union, as a new tribe of soul family and community is birthed. 
Your taste buds will be tantalised with delicious, nourishing meals as you soak in the magical energy of our sacred land here in the west. It is completely natural to arrive a little unsure or nervous, but as you are held safely within sacred space the urge to completely surrender will become too powerful to ignore, as you gently let go and arrive home to your truest essence and authentic self.
This is not your average yoga teacher training. You will be pushed beyond your comfort zone, but only to meet that part of yourself that knows absolute truth, freedom, unconditional love and acceptance.

I'd like to see where this journey can take me...

Kristine Ragus 

lead trainer | E-RYT 500 YACEP
First finding yoga in 2013 as a way to cope with chronic pain and spinal injuries, it very quickly progressed into a way of life.
With a passion for art, movement and philosophy, Kristine presents yoga as a blank canvas for the individual to explore their true nature and infinite potential. Kristine's teaching style infuses inspired movement and deep body connection with yogic philosophy and storytelling.
Kristine is a registered E-RYT 500 teacher, having completing training in Canada, Australia, India and Hong Kong.

Seline Schmid

lead trainer | E-RYT 200 / RYT 500 YACEP
As an international fitness instructor and trainer, Seline has crushed the industry since 2005 when her journey with yoga began. As she discovered the balance between strength and flexibility, she found the way in which she perceived life was also evolving. Now weaving meditation and pranayama into her practice, she realised the importance of self care and stillness techniques in every day life.
Teaching over 15 200HR YTTs in Bali and Thailand, Seline has mentored over 300 students globally. Her goal is to inspire her students to live a healthy and holistic lifestyle. 
Seline is a registered E-RYT 200/RYT 500 teacher, specialising in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra. She continues her studies in various fields under the guidance of her favourite teacher Dr. Ganesh Rao.

Andrew Williams

Anatomy & Physiology Trainer | RYT 200
At six years of age, Andrew began his training in Martial Arts and later became an instructor, with 27 years of experience under his belt.
Since then, Andrew's obsession with the human body has expanded his knowledge on a daily basis. He is highly regarded as a Remedial Therapist, Master Personal Trainer, Sports Massage Therapist and Deep Tissue Therapist, working with many of Perth’s top yoga teachers, international athletes and those injured in normal living.
Andrew's incredible knowledge of the body and movement, paired with his masterful delivery, offers each student the gift of peering into his genius mind and taking this into their own teachings on the mat.
Trust us, anatomy and physiology have never been so gripping and exciting to learn!!

Georgia Carter

philosophy trainer | E-RYT 200 YACEP
An earnest seeker, Georgia first met the practice of yoga over 6 years ago; her experience evolving through various disciplines of ashtanga, hatha, vinyasa, yin, bhakti yoga and vipassana meditation.
Georgia's work is based on traditional yoga, the Iyengar lineage and the exploration of the Self. Passionate about entering into a romance with life, she keeps her flame burning through practicing in accordance with the 8 limbs, poetic musings and sharing her experiences with others.
Georgia travels annually to Rishikesh, India, to deepen her understanding of yoga and vedanta under the direction of Senior Iyengar Teachers Usha Devi and Siddhartha Krishna. She also studies vedic astrology and is currently diving into Sanskrit studies at Sivananda Ashram.

All previous students have commented on the passion, dedication, love and care of our YTT teaching team. They truly are committed to helping each individual bloom into the teacher they were always destined to be.
