Studying with Us

Small enough to provide individual attention, hands-on learning, and nurturing support. Big enough to offer professional training, legally-backed security, and targeted career guidance. That’s the COTY difference.

Nationally Recognised Training

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 45020), COTY has the government tick of approval to deliver high calibre training with nationally recognised qualifications. By training with an RTO, you get to work with expert instructors who are current practitioners in their areas of expertise, as well as experts at training others.

ASQA Accredited Courses

We deliver nationally recognised vocational training, providing all students Australia’s highest level of yoga teacher training. Our Certificate IV in Remedial Yoga Teaching (10137NAT) course is accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority, which means you get real qualifications that can take you anywhere in the world. Study in confidence knowing that your trainers hold the necessary qualification for professional yoga teacher training.

Industry Registered

Our program courses are registered with Yoga Australia, a nationally recognised independent association that conforms to all international industry standards giving all graduates a wider sense of community and understanding.

Career-Making Yoga Courses

Developed by industry experts, our yoga teaching and therapy programs are taught by professional educators and deliver the industry’s most recognised yoga teaching qualifications. From the moment you step on campus, you’ll be immersed in a world-class learning environment, complete with fully-equipped skill centres, and areas for study or chilling out. Our courses also bridge the gap between yoga, fitness, and healthcare, so you get a comprehensive experience you can apply across industries.

Real World Training Experience

Many yoga courses only teach the theory behind the teaching of yoga. The College of Therapy Yoga offers vocational training programs that provide hands-on teaching experience and training before you graduate. Our Give-Back to the Community classes are run by the students of this college all across the greater Sydney metropolitan area, so you get real-world experience while you train.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Graduate with qualifications that give you the required skills and knowledge for Public Liability and Indemnity Insurance eligibility. This is a must for your professional yoga teaching practice.

Sincere Support

Don’t be fooled by our world-class teaching facilities — we’re no corporate bigwigs. We are warm and caring yoga teachers who are here to help our students every step of the way. We have student care support staff available before and after class, open drop-in times, and phone and online support.

Holistic Mindset

We all know that when you are truly healthy, your focus is no longer “me, me, me,” but expands outward into your community. Being a healthy yoga teacher is all about having the energy to do your karmic duty to serve others, and still have room for more. Here at COTY, we strive for the kind of health that drives you to ask “what can I do for you?” even at the end of the day.

Flexible Programs & Payment Options

The College of Therapy Yoga is a specialist college that offers flexible study programs with assessment dates and guidelines for our study program. All our students enjoy interest-free monthly payment plans with the added security of studying with an RTO. As such, COTY has the responsibility to protect student fees. Our fee protection arrangement complies with national standards designed to limit the amount paid by a student in advance of services being delivered.

Student Discounts

All COTY students are entitled to discounts on all continuing educational courses, such as class-writing, retreats, and intensive workshops scheduled throughout the year. These cover a variety of subjects such as Zen Shiatsu Practical Techniques, Advanced Yoga Spinal Techniques, Macrobiotic Cooking, and Nutritional Therapy. Students are also offered discounts to classes at The Yoga House studio to ensure they continue to learn from the best.

Trainers Who Are Trained to Train

It’s one thing to be a good yoga teacher, but another to be a great trainer for other teachers. All COTY trainers are not only qualified as senior level yoga teachers, but also certified in Training and Assessment, which has equipped them with the skills and knowledge to deliver training across the spectrum of student learning styles.
