Guilty: Meet the Adelaide Yoga Teacher Delivering Results

Reading Time: 2 Minutes

Guilty Teacher in Adelaide

Yoga Teacher getting results

Adelaide’s own Ben Greenwood is guilty of delivering results with his intensive yoga training at Yoga Theory Unley. Focusing on 50 minute group yoga sessions and private classes, he is getting the best results possible for his clients. Whether his clients are looking to lose weight, improve flexibility or just have a more balanced life, Ben is there to help.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“When I first started yoga, I could not touch my toes or even sit down comfortably. After developing a regular yoga practice and seeing the results in my own body – I got hooked. I started to feel calm and focused, I was more in tune with myself and my practice and I felt great physically. This helped me have the confidence to follow my goals. I want to share that feeling with others in a friendly, down to Earth environment.”

Where is he now?

Ben is currently running group yoga classes regularly at Yoga Theory as well as private sessions for those who want a more personalized setting. Building from his experience training strict traditional yoga in India to his intensive contemporary yoga training locally, his classes cut to the chase and focus on what matters – getting the best results possible.

Here’s what others are saying:

“Best Yoga studio in Adelaide. Located conveniently in Unley. Very reasonable rate. Ben is a fantastic Yoga teacher. He is patient, humble, and attentive to your needs. Will be going back regularly.” – Dan

Thailand Training Experience – Ben

Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand

Training Yoga in Thailand

I really enjoyed my Thailand yoga training experience.

In 2015 I spent three months training and studying yoga in Thailand.

It was an amazing time and I learnt so much.

Training yoga in Thailand is a must-do thing for any aspiring yoga teacher or any passionate yogi.

I really enjoyed the experience and I would do it again. Actually, I plan to. I studied a general course in Hatha Yoga at Mahidol University.

I was on exchange for my Law degree at Mahidol University where I took a small course as a non-law elective.

Unfortunately, Adelaide University did not count this as a non-law elective so I had to take some other courses to make up for it.

I still took the course because if you are in Thailand and you have an opportunity to take a yoga course, just do it. 

Yoga training in Bangkok

I also taught at a yoga studio in Bangkok when I met another yoga teacher  in the city. When I was not doing that, I taught to international students on top of my apartment building where I was staying on the top floor balcony.

I use to walk up the stairs to the rooftop and plan yoga classes and I just did my marketing through my Instagram @benzenn.

It was actually a good turn out for my classes with perfect weather and keen students ready to learn. 

One day I may return to teach in Thailand for more yoga training experience. 

But for now I will focus on my life in Adelaide and teaching with Yoga Theory.

Yoga Training in India

Reading Time: 3 Minutes

200hr Yoga Teacher Training in India

Completing my Yoga Alliance Training

In January 2016 I undertook a 30 day 200 hour certified yoga course.

This allowed me to complete my Yoga Alliance certified teacher training in India.

This was a tough experience for me and it was my first time yoga training in India, and being in India. 

The first lesson of training: Comfort makes you lazy.

I had to be up by 6am everyday for one and a half hours of yoga in the morning, two hours of meditation in the day time and intensive yoga practice in the evening.

This was coupled with classes on anatomy, philosophy and physiology. The diet was mostly ayurvedic, although I did venture past the monkeys to eat some fresh vegetarian samosas.

It was a challenging experience but I learnt a lot about the anatomy and physiology of yoga as well as the history.

Learning from experienced yoga teachers

I trained with different yoga teachers in India and they challenged me both mentally and physically through the strict traditional approach of yoga.

This included chanting, strict meditation and a 4 hours of yoga practice per day.

As it was January way up north near the Himalayas, the weather was cold and when we practiced the room was not that warm.

It was tough but I managed.

A good challenge

It was a challenging experience for me but I feel the benefits of the course made it worth it.

I made a lot of new friends with other yoga teachers and made amazing progress in my practice.

Going to India is a must do for yoga teachers in my opinion.

Just India alone is good for our mental development by exploring and getting out of our comfort zone.

It was a great learning experience being in India and he found it really elevated his yoga practice, especially his understanding of alignment, anatomy and the culture of traditional yoga.

The worst part about my training was when a monkey stole my cake!
