ONE MONTH INTENSIVE 2018: 5 – 27 March, 2018.


Part time: 3 Modules.

This part time course is a series of modules – module 1 and 2 you can do in any order and module 3 is the final stepping into teaching module.

Module 1

Learn how to teach yoga – the focus is on understanding the body: asanas, alignment, adjustments, sequencing, finding your voice and style and exploring yourself and creativity as a teacher. Yoga knowledge is offered that is excluded from module 2’s specific purpose. Practical assignments weigh quite heavily in time outside of this course.

Module 2

This course starts you on the personal journey of cleansing your physical and mental/emotional bodies using the tools of Yoga. With a ready mind, we will explore the philosophy of yoga and various techniques that will allow you to apply that philosophy into every day life and integrate it into your expression of Self.

If you are not personally invested in the journey of yoga, the knowledge will not integrate as your own and your teaching will remain surface level. This course, and I, invite you to begin with yourself, to take yourself through a deeper experience of yoga and to lay the immense foundation for Yoga Understanding. This is a process oriented course, with lots of opportunity to practice. The practical tools of teaching asana (indepth study of asana and teaching skills) will be covered in the next module. This course is more about your journey with yoga to understand it properly creating a foundation for your teaching knowledge and experiences. As it is taught in the manner in which yoga was handed down, of course, it is a dynamic course, and your interest and questions will direct the flow of information and exploration somewhat also! I look forward to this journey with you!

Course covers:

Daily practice

Yogic lifestyle choices (cleansing the physical body)

Yoga Philosophy

Developing Your mind and consciousness with yogic tools

Yoga Kriya (cleansing your physical body)

Yoga asana alignment from a personal practise perspective


Daytime course: 8.30am – 12.30pm

Module 3:

This is the final chapter where you get to put into practice everything you have learnt and not learnt.

Style of yoga: Hatha yoga. This course will teach you to find and develop your style of yoga from hatha to a stronger vinyasa. A hatha daily practice will be used to balance your emotional body. This practice can be strong or gentle based on your needs but it won’t be fast.

This is the final module including exam and teaching pracs, winding up knowledge into a whole story.

Prerequisite: regular yoga practice of 3 months. I like students to have attempted headstand in their practice. If you haven’t/can’t do it yet, come to me for the guidelines.

Message from Course director

This course invites you to go deeply into yourself and make yoga lifestyle truly a way of living with the purpose of Independence. In-between modules you have the opportunity to integrate and practice, experiment and practice. This course is not just about the skill of teaching yoga, but about teaching yoga from a deep personal experience of it and yourself.

Learn to lead others into their own personal experience of themselves via yoga. This course will first and foremost take you into a deep personal experience of yourself! It is not an easy journey to start looking, to take MORE responsibility for yourself and to live life in this way as a rule rather than exception, and then teach from this self enlightenment.

This course is also available to anyone wishing to deepen and refine their own practice without necessarily wanting to teach.

Cleanse all the layers of your Being through techniques that help you to Change Your Life.
