OUR TEACHERS AND STUDIO
Our studio is the most highly rated studio for Yoga Teacher Training in South Africa.
All of our Teachers are 500hr Yoga Alliance Teachers, the highest qualification a Teacher can have.
We were the first studio to be qualified to offer the Advanced 300/500 hr Yoga Alliance approved Teacher Training in South Africa. We are hugely experienced in Yoga Teacher Training. To date we have run over 25 Yoga 200 hr Teacher Training courses and 4 Yoga 300/500hr Yoga Teacher Training courses.
OUR TRAINEES: We believe Yoga should be accessible to all so our students are incredibly diverse. Local, international, 17 – 69 years (so far!), different yoga backgrounds, everyone is very welcome. Many studios have high rentals so have no choice but to charge significant amounts for Teacher Training, making Teacher Training exclusive only to wealthy people. We believe that Yoga should be as accessible as possible so we student discounts, unemployed rates, scholarships and payment plans.
We work from an environmental retreat studio using solar, rain water and environmental building, lowering our overheads, further enabling us to lower the cost of the Teacher training courses.
YOGA PRACTICE You will develop and deepen your practice, and begin to understand how to do many poses safely and well. You will be able to demonstrate all postures to intermediate level, and advanced postures determined by you as an individual.
You are not required to be an intermediate or advanced at yoga, nor fit or flexible, we will help you to explore the right level of yoga for you.

We believe yoga is for everyone.
We teach Peak Pose Vinyasa Flow with an emphasis on anatomy knowledge to help you and your students explore many poses. BUT we love all Yoga styles. If it works intelligently we will use it in our sequencing in class.
