” Yoga is very popular and common in Australia with many different teaching styles in the market. It is very encouraging that after attending a class, many students have asked me about my teaching style and where I received my training. They are pleasantly surprised to find out that I was trained in Malaysia and not in India.

Australia is also very stringent about having local qualifications and certifications. I have taught at 6 different community centres, a physiotherapy clinic, a secondary school, the Taekwando squad for Victoria, private classes at Isika Spa at Crown Metropole Hotel, Lululemon Stores and workplace yoga at various corporations including the Institute of Neuroscience at Melbourne University as well as my own private and group classes. I have never encountered any issue with my IYIC qualification. I have now been happily teaching and practising yoga in Melbourne for the past 4 years.

I am eternally grounded with gratitude for all the training I have received from Master Mani and the trainers of IYIC. Every time I return to Malaysia, I look forward to attending as many classes as I can with Master Mani- for inspiration, guidance and to evolve my teaching skills. ” – Nalini Singam (Australia)

” I started to learn yoga when I was 13 and it was my mom who encouraged me to join the Super Yoga Kids program. Initially I joined because of my mother but as the months went by, I began to enjoy seeing my own progress with the asanas (yoga postures). Besides having a better knowledge of my strength and flexibility, I have also become calmer through yoga.

After graduating from Super Yoga Kids, I continued my yoga training with Master Mani and learned Kriya Yoga, which to me are mental practices that highly benefit disciplined individuals. I have also since completed the IYIC Level 1. The good news is I’ll be teaching yoga next semester. Our yoga style is so much different that the Health Center Coordinator wants me to teach the yoga classes. Those in the campus are more like fitness classes. Thank you mom, for sending me to yoga classes. This job can really beef up my resume and help me make some friends as well. ”  – Nigel, Now Attending Drake University At Des Moines, USA

” The IYIC has taught me that yoga is a mind-body science. It has helped me manage my emotions, deepen my self-understanding, enhance my leadership skills and guided me to a more disciplined lifestyle. It has also given me a skin that is glowing and radiant! Teaching full time and running a yoga centre is a very meaningful experience for me.  – Neha Koh

“Acquiring ancient wisdom through a master yoga teacher is the best investment in one’s life.
It’s important for us to be prepared by understanding the true benefits of yoga as we do not know when we will need it. I have been teaching yoga classes for 2 years and it speaks volume When you are certified! And the learning doesn’t end here… I have now also completed my Yoga Therapist Certification at Yoga franchise..” – Lim P-Tong

“What I really liked about IYIC is that we were taught how to penetrate asana deeper,understanding how to go beyond our ” body memory” limitations and even touched on own personality development of sort.
 We learned to be non-judgmental and compassionate when teaching. At the completion of the course, we took home priceless knowledge and some wonderful friendship.” – Ranjini Arumugam

“After joining the weekly yoga foundation classes, I decided to go further with IYIC. I realise now how IYIC is much more than physical exercise. It is a deep and rich science that requires knowledge and patience” – Anabelle Presa

Utmost care and compassion has to be exercised at all times throughout the pregnancy period, up to a safe childbirth.

There is so much to learn and the course was presented in an easy-to-understand manner. It definitely helps me in my profession as a midwife.” – Stephanie chan


“I decided to further my development as a yoga teacher by enrolling in Pregnancy Yoga Instructor Course (PYIC) as the certification woud widen my opportunity to conduct yoga lessons which are not just the conventional. Through the experience of teaching Pregnancy Yoga, I am reminded that pregnancy is a unique process for each woman. There is a new sharpening of my alertness and awareness when managing a Pregnancy Yoga group class and so much more skills to develop as a yoga teacher. I just love the continuation of learning more and more!

A deep sense of satisfaction comes to me easily in witnessing the progress of each pregnant student through the stages of carrying her baby, the closeness with each other during group sharing in class and applying the knowledge gained from PYIC training to guide each of them.

Both new and experienced yoga students are very cautious during pregnancy especially with the many taboos in our Asian culture on do’s and don’ts. Many also have the challenge of adapting to physiological changes due to hormaonal changes. There are some students who find themselves unusually stiff after becoming pregnant. I am glad to be able to coach and boost the confidence of these ladies by showing them safe ways to create more room for their baby while practicing yoga and creating a session that is comfortable and enjoyable all the way towards delivery. The improved circulation, flexibility and toning help relieve tensions, aches and tiredness and they always feel more balanced and energized after each practice” – Vivien Teoh


“Many women discover yoga when they are pregnant. I started yoga when I was 5 months pregnant with my frst son 7 years ago. Since I was new to yoga, it only took simple asanas, pranayama and meditation to feel completely relaxed and calm.

It was yoga all the way for me thereafter. So when I eas expecting my second son, it was only natural for me to dwell deeper into the works of pre-natal yoga. I felt this intense need to learn and teach pregnancy yoga. And what better way to experience it than when I am pregnant.

Pragnancy is a very important and delicate time for expectant mothers, pre-natal yoga is not only about fitness but guiding and caring for expectant mothers through 3 trimesters in a positive and loving environment. Hence allowing mother and baby to feel calm, centred, relaxed, cheerful and great looking!” – Subashini Nair

Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) Instructor/Practitioner Course (PBTIC)

By controlling the act of breathing you can efficiently control the various motions in the body and the different nerve-currents that are running through the body. The breath, directed by thought under the control of the will, is a vitalising, regenerating force which you can utilise consciously for self development and for healing diseases in your system.” – Swami Sivananda

The word ‘Pranayama’ is comprised of two root words: ‘prana’ and ‘ayama’. Prana means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’, (also known as ‘chi’ in Chinese and ‘ki’ in Japanese). Although its closely related to the air we breathe, it is more subtle than air or oxygen. The word ‘ayama’ means extension or expansion. Hence, ‘Pranayama’ can be translated to expansion of vital energy.

Pranayama should therefore not be considered as mere breathing exercise aimed at introducing extra oxygen into the lungs. 
Pranayama utilizes breathing to influence the flow of prana in the nadis(energy channels) of the pranayama kosha(energy body). The techniques of pranayama provide a method whereby the life force can be activated and regulated in order to go beyond one’s normal boundaries or limitations and attain a higher state of vibratory energy and awareness. 

A slow breathing rate has been proven to keep the heart stronger and better nourished, contributing to a longer life. Deep breathing also increases the absorption of energy and increased oxygenation – enhancing dynamism, vitality and general well being. 

Mudras are gestures and are also defined as a ‘seal’ or ‘short-cut’. Our vital energy is constantly being dissipated and lost to the outside world. By practising mudras, energy is re-directed within and conserved. Bandha means to ‘hold’ or ‘lock’. Bandhas aim to lock the prana in particular areas and redirect the flow to higher yogic practices. 

In this Pranayama Instructors / Practitioners Course, you will be taught total up to almost 100 types of pranayama techniques, mudras, and bandhas. Yoga Instructors will find this course very useful in your teaching as pranayama is an important part of authentic yoga. Practitioners will be able to practice the techniques confidently on their own for the various benefits they choose to master.
