Get Started


We are delighted to share this journey of self-discovery with you. While this program will be filled with wellness oriented information to cultivate your understanding in the topics of wellness, the greatest inspiration and transformation lies within. We can sow the seeds but the responsibility to implement what you learn lies with you through the active choices you make each day. You have chosen to be empowered to be everything that you are meant to be through learning new tools and techniques to achieve and sustain wellness.

This is a moment to be celebrated!



For getting the most out of your personal wellness program with WELLnet


Your program has been designed around 8 topics – the Principles of Wellness. Within each topic there are a number of sessions. Within each session you will find videos, downloadable pdf’s, audios, actions to implement, opportunities to connect with the ASWA facebook community and links for you to delve deeper into the topic.

Important: Each topic must be completed in the order of the course outline before the next topic can be begun. It is highly recommended that you allow a week between each topic to fully process the information that you receive and most importantly, to practice the actions in your daily life. It is the repetition of these actions that will result in positive long-term changes in your wellness.

At the end of your program, there is a downloadable pdf that lists all the references from this program into one neat, convenient document for you.

And of course, you will be able to download your certificate of completion as a celebration and reward for completion of your ASWA personal wellness journey.



If you experience any technical issues whilst completing this program, contact ASWA support through your student links menu on the right hand side of your screen. You are our priority and we endeavour to action support issues as quickly as possible, usually within 24 hours.

We are here to empower and support you so please reach out via email support@aswa.net.au at any time, and connect with new like-minded friends in the ASWA community group forums on https://www.facebook.com/aswawellness/


At ASWA, we believe that we can all do more to empower individuals to achieve and sustain wellness. The current program is a culmination of a large number of people’s thoughts and feedback, to bring you what you have today. We love constructive feedback on what and how we can do more to make this program inspiring and supportive of you achieving your personal wellness goals.

So, at any time, if you have a suggestion, idea or inspiration for how we can make this program even better, we would absolutely love to hear from you. And if you think we should talk to somebody or an organisation that can add to the experience of the students doing the program, just let us know so that we can take positive action.


Each topic will have an self-accountability prompt for you to connect with your fellow members in the ASWA FB Community. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to join our Facebook Wellness Community. After liking the ASWA Facebook page, simply click Join Group below the cover photo on the ASWA Facebook page. Please answer the three questions when prompted so we can confirm you have registered for the Wellness Within Program and to get to know you a little better. This closed group is a space for students of Wellness Within, to share your experiences, ask questions and connect with like-minded people within the ASWA community.

If you encounter any roadblocks, please let us know as the success of your wellness journey is super important to us.


Most sessions have a presentation or video similar to the video below about WELLnet, the learning software system here at the Australasian Sustainable Wellness Academy for all our wellness and leadership training programs.

You have control to pause/forward/rewind the video at your convenience.

For the best quality video experience we highly recommend:

  1. Using a pair of quality headphones – to ensure the best quality sound; and
  2. Adjusting your youtube settings – to ensure the highest quality and clarity.

After pressing the play icon   on the video, press the settings icon   and then choose a high quality option – 720HD is recommended.

Watch this video to discover how WELLnet works to support your wellness learning journey.


PDF Document:
Most videos have a corresponding PDF that you can download, print and refer to as it suits you. Whenever you see this PDF symbol you know that there is a document that you can download.


SUPER IMPORTANT: You need to click on the MARK COMPLETE button that you will find at the end of each topic as this informs WELLnet that you have completed that section. If you do not click on this, WELLnet thinks that you have not completed it yet and your ‘course progress’ indicator will not be accurate and you will be prompted to do it all over again. Now that wouldn’t add to your wellness now would it!
