Our approach to Yoga and our Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum

Yoga means "union". For us this means uniting and returning to your natural state of freedom, full of creativity and love. For us, yoga is a life journey and a wonderful tool for living. By the end of the yoga teacher training course, you will gain enough knowledge and practice teaching to be confident enough to teach a full yoga class. Not only this, but in each training we tune into the needs of the group and each individual to help you progress in your own yoga journey. "Satsang" in the yoga tradition is a form of gathering for spiritual discourse. During the course, satsang will be offered as part of the learning of yoga philosophy but also as an open forum to discuss and explore the spiritual path in the spirit of yoga.
