Deepen Your Personal Practice. Heal. Grow. Teach.
Are you feeling called to deepening your personal sadhana, expanding your knowledge of Yoga philosophy, tradition, and practices? Is personal healing a priority for you right now? Do you have a longing to share the Yoga tradition with others?

This 200 contact hour YTT program is offered over the course of 10 months, enabling students to work, study, and integrate their training into daily life! If your focus is deep personal healing, growth and evolution on your path through this lifetime, this training is for you.

Our program is designed holistically, with a strong foundation rooted in the classical path of Hatha Yoga and the Himalayan Tradition, and a special focus on trauma-informed Yoga, to promote the deep inner healing process and spiritual evolution in a safe and supportive environment. Your goal need not be to become a Yoga teacher. Many of our students are on this journey for purely personal reasons, to deepen their understanding of Yoga and the depth of their sadhana. It is as much a Yogic lifestyle immersion as it is a teacher training.

Immerse yourself in a transformative course of study and practice, within a holistic integrated, trauma sensitive program. Our training is limited to 8 students per year. The program draws from traditional yoga theory and modern knowledge of the body and mind to cover the complete scope of Yoga. Through the use of lecture, asana practice and analysis, group work, self-study and personal practice, I endeavour to guide each of you on a journey into your deepest self, on the path to discovering and understanding patterns behind lifestyle and relationship choices, and to learn to listen to the call of your heart. Through this, you will cultivate your own unique teaching style from a place of authenticity and truth. The opportunity to study and learn from a diverse team of experienced teachers will aid you in deepening your personal practice and in developing well rounded teaching skills. My intention is that you discover the natural healer and teacher within and understand that you are a valuable link in the continuation and lineage of holistic healing and the Yoga tradition. Join us for a unique experience in this in depth, journey into Self.
