Hi All,

I'm new to this forum but very grateful it is here in place.

I recently moved to a very isolated area of QLD and although the town has a population of 15,000 and includes several gyms there is not a single yoga class here or in any of the surrounding towns.

Before I moved here I did Power Yoga fairly regularly as it was close to home. Before that I did Dru-Yoga and a few other forms of yoga. I always love it but would never say I've been a SUPER dedicated student.

I'm a licensed Nia instructor which is a dance fusion class that does use Yoga techniques in some of the sequencing - but as yet have not teached a class.

I am REALLY keen to do the distance education option for training but I'm not sure if it is a wise thing to do since I've trained in Nia then never used it...I get a bit scared when it comes to crunch time of being up on a stage teaching a class...but for some reason Yoga doesn't intimidate me as much.

Since I am isolate and would have no contact to other Yoga teachers my training would all be entirely dependent on the materials supplied and my own practice - my concern is I may not be doing the poses correctly....or develop bad techniques.

Would love to hear experiences from others...or any ideas and suggestions?

Central QLD, Australia
