    Our Vision

    “Does the world really need more yoga teachers?” People ask us often. The honest answer, YES.

    The world is changing; the yoga movement is expanding each and every day. With more people beginning to practice yoga, hear about yoga, see yoga and turn to it for healing… YES we need more teachers.

    Wait though… more than just needing qualified instructors telling people how to move across a yoga mat, we need LEADERS. We need more authenticity and raw honesty.

    If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed that the world is waking up.

    There’s a collective of movers, shakers and magic makers starting to change the landscape of an old world.

    When you’re doing it right you also see life for its beauty, drop into its infinite joy and fall in love with the world around you. We need leaders that have seen their own challenges, walked through their own shadow and are now willing to rise. We need more movers, lifting the world up with them as they go. We need more shakers, willing to ask the big questions, shifting from just existing to THRIVING.

Learn the alignment of the classic yoga poses as well as the functional transitions and sequences that modern vinyasa was shaped from.

    • Philosophy: the lineage of yoga dates back thousands of years and is steeped in wisdom that is potent and relevant to our modern world more than ever before. We will unearth the teachings of the great yogic minds that came before us and build the landscape of our modern yoga, including the yoga sutras of Patanjali.

    • Energetics & Subtle Body : within the body lies an intricate web of energy lines in centres. When utilised, there is an infinite supply of energy that can be drawn out in the form of breath practise is [pranayama], meditation, bandahs, kriyas, mudras, and asanas. We will uncover the ancient systems of chakras: energy centres along the spine and how they correlate to the modern neuroscience and psychology. We will cross reference Ayurveda and Chinese medicine theory to show you the tapestry of energy that weaves through you just waiting to be harnessed.

    • Teacher Ethics & Lifestyle: the path of a yoga teacher spans much farther been saying poetic words in a studio, it’s a package deal that comes with morals and appropriate behaviours outside of the studio. We will unpack the unspoken code of conduct, which will help you form lasting relationships to students whilst managing your own energy and timetable while staying true to your personal values
