    Course FAQ

    The Yoga we teach on our Yoga Teacher Training courses is an authentic ‘Vini’ flow – which connects Hatha Yoga postures in short flowing Vinyasa sequences. The Yoga taught draws from the Sri T Krishnamacharya lineage – a therapeutic and holistic approach to teaching the goal of which is to create healing and wellbeing in mind, body and breath. This builds a strong and authentic foundation for your teaching and practice, ensuring what you teach is safe and effective and from a legitimate source. We teach you how to deepen your own practice and give you the skills and knowledge to be able to teach all levels of Yoga with confidence and understanding.

    The training is physically and emotionally demanding; therefore we require that all students have prior yoga experience of at least 1 year, and are committed to improving their practice.

    Please note that some students that attend our teacher training simply wish to deepen their practice and do not intend to teach immediately. This is fine with us, as what matters more to is a student’s dedication, commitment to personal growth and openness to learning. 

    It is important to understand that this is a teacher training and not a yoga retreat. Please note that our yoga teacher training courses are not suitable for people who are looking for a relaxing or rejuvenating yoga experience. To them we suggest to consider our  Yoga Retreat   programs.
