When I signed up for the 10 months yoga teacher training course led by SomaChi, I knew that there would be a significant amount of work involved and was under no illusions about the commitment needed.

The level of tuition was very high. Lianne Metcalf is a fantastic teacher and has a unique and highly effective way of imparting knowledge. Her teachings will stay with me for a very long time. I felt a deep connection with the traditional teachings and these have infiltrated into my day to day life and are making me a happier, more balanced person.

My increased knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body after the yoga teacher training course takes the awareness of the benefits of yoga to the next level, which again leads to an even greater appreciation that I hope to pass on to my students.

Maria Simeone

My yoga teacher training journey with Lianne and Pete began 4 years ago, when I was looking for the best Yoga school in Melbourne upon returning from living overseas. My partner found SomaChi (he loved the name!) and the rest is history. Doing the TTC with Lianne was the beginning of what I have called my 2nd life – realising that I only ever had 1 life to begin with and to finally really start loving myself and that life!

The deep knowledge of Yoga as a science and philosophy flows through each and every class and is passed on to students on both an individual level and a class level. Lianne’s calm assurance and motivating teaching methods, bring out the best in each individual and teach that person how to do the same for others.

Becoming a Yoga Teacher being taught by SomaChi is not only an amazing experience, it is a gift. I am still learning... hence the journey of becoming a teacher of Yoga. There is nothing else quite like it.

Eddy Borg

The yoga teacher training with SomaChi is very in-depth and will give you a solid foundation to be able to teach, break down progression of postures, do safe adjustments, and identify the differences between traditional and modern styles of yoga teaching such as Vinyasa.

This is not a short course that aims to churn out yoga teachers in 1-2 months, but a solid foundational education over 9 months that will challenge you and help you grow to potentially be the best yoga teacher in Melbourne... both personally and professionally.
