At BIYOME we believe in offering our students experiences that build upon their unique field of interest; experiences that captivate innate teaching styles and areas of specialty. For this reason, throughout the year we offer current students, teachers, practitioners, as well as the larger community, “Specialty Intensive Training” designed to truly develop and enhance learning in specific yoga and meditation methodologies.
These continuing professional development (CPD) courses have been designed to develop your knowledge, experience, skill’s, understanding, and professionalism in both yoga and meditation teacher training.
Undertaking BIYOME’s CPD’s in specific areas of specialty intensive training not only ensures that a teachers knowledge and skills stay relevant and up to date, so too it opens both experienced teachers and teachers in training up to new possibilities, new knowledge, and new skill areas in yoga and meditation teaching. Specialty intensive training also ensures that teachers continually deliver a safe environment and best-practice teachings to their students.
The BioMedical Institute of Yoga and Meditation also offers these CPD courses, as we desire that our graduates are most aware of, and trained in, the changing trends and directions of yoga and meditation, while still acknowledging and respecting the ancient sciences of the East.
Each CPD elective is registered with Yoga Australia and may accrue CPD points with other governing bodies. At BIYOME, we encourage you to use your elective choice to lead you towards higher level registration with Yoga Australia and the Meditation Association of Australia. Please feel free to ask us more.
