Upcoming Teacher Training

This teacher training is designed for those who seek soul enlightenment and deep wisdom.

It is traditional yoga in its orignal form from India and this training is suitable for any person of any age, including those who are already teachers and wish to go deeper into the roots of yoga, aswell as for those who wish to become teachers.

Yoga works on the level of one's body, mind, emotion and energy. This has given rise to four broad classifications of Yoga: Karma Yoga where we utilise the body; Jnāna Yoga where we utilise the mind; Bhakti Yoga where we utilise the emotion and Raja Yoga where we utilize the energy. Each system of Yoga we practice falls within the gamut of one or more of these categories.
The four schools of Yoga (Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga and Raja Yoga)
