OUR TEACHERS AND STUDIO

We are Yoga Teacher Training specialists. 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 30  Yoga 200 hr Teacher Training courses and 5 Yoga 300/500hr Yoga Teacher Training courses.

YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE

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. 

We believe that Yoga should be as accessible as possible (we may be the most reasonably priced Teacher Training School in the world – we can’t check them all but we must be in the top few!) We offer the most reasonable rate we can, as well 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.

POSE PRACTICE
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.
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.  

We are lucky enough to partner up with the incredible Jenni Rawlings. Jenni will give all of our trainees ONE FREE MONTH OF ONLINE CLASS MEMBERSHIP. Check out Jenni’s INSTAGRAM PAGE @jenni_rawlings and website jennirawlings.com.
