Teacher Training Intensives
Are you ready to embark on becoming a skillful yoga teacher?
The process of sharing yoga with others requires that first, we be a student.
Being a yoga teacher is more of a on-going process of self development rather than a final destination.
The trainings I currently offer, support this process of putting your studentship first, whilst offering refinement and clarity on incorporating new development and skill to foster more informed teaching.

What my students say about Teacher Training
“I recently completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training with Michelle Freeman through Bonfire Yoga Studios. I have nothing but praise and admiration for Michelle! She has such a wealth of knowledge and is so happy to put in extra time to help if you are struggling with any concepts. The course content seemed very overwhelming at first, but Michelle made learning enjoyable and broke it all down very well. I especially enjoyed learning about yoga philosophy and it has made me want to study more about the history and the other aspects of yoga such as pranayama and meditation. It was wonderful also to connect with like-minded people and I’ve made many new friends during the course. I highly recommend this teacher training to anyone wishing to enhance their practice or to teach yoga!”
- “The Yoga Teacher Training 2018 was an incredible experience for me. I knew that I wanted to become a yoga teacher soon after beginning a solid yoga practice in 2013. Around this time, I partook in Michelle’s Hot yoga and vinyasa classes. Her teaching is one of a kind so I knew that being mentored by her into a teaching role would be a wise decision. She has incredible talent, skill and passion, as well as a great work ethic. The combination of these factors were a driving force for me to dive in and learn as much as I could. The training forced me to step out of comfort zones, both mentally and physically. In addition, I met such a wonderful group of people from an array of backgrounds. Each one of these individual’s opened my eyes to different aspects of the yoga world, which was invaluable. Our group was also given much support from other Bonfire teachers which was very much appreciated. After months of hard work (and lots of fun), we were able to celebrate at a relaxing retreat in the Noosa Hinterland-amazing! Completing Michelle’s teacher training really was one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
“Since starting with Bonfire Yoga more than 5 years ago, I have been waiting for the opportunity to complete my teacher training under the guidance of Michelle and it did not disappoint. The training was structured in a way to make you feel confident not only within your own practice, but to actually stand up and teach a class in both Vinyasa and Hot Yoga. The training was detailed and gave me a great understanding of yoga philosophy and anatomy, as well as breaking down and delivering postures. Made great friends and connections throughout the training and felt supported by this amazing community at Bonfire. Highly recommend this course!”
