Our training also combines insights from Anusara, Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra and iRest.

Starting January 2023, nine weekends and one 40-hr retreat we are offering a well rounded yoga training to deepen your practice. Focusing on a strong foundation in Anatomy, Physiology, Philosophy and Meditation, and teaching the techniques and benefits of yoga for every body. Develop your personal practice in both asana and mediation, learn to build a professional teaching practice.

A foundational 200-hr training will serve as a powerful base from which to teach yoga. You will learn to guide your students through a practice that educates and inspires them. It will be taught by combining practice and theory and is not just for aspiring teachers, but for anyone who wishes to deepen their personal practice and gain a better insight into the origins and the philosophy of yoga and how that relates to our culture and to us as yogis today.

The benefits of yoga teacher training go far beyond a teaching qualification. The aim of our training is to develop the resources to improve your overall knowledge of all things yoga. Not only will you qualify as a teacher but you will also develop a personal mental, physical, emotional and spiritual awareness for yourself and in your life.
