Message from Course director

To break a tough outer shell of bad habits we have to break our routine and habits and introduce new experiences that will have long-lasting positive effect. This course invites you to go deeply into yourself and make yoga lifestyle truly a way of living. 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. We hope you will join us.

In this course you will learn how to teach yoga, leaving with the confidence and ability to take 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.

Her own journey of yoga has been one of finding freedom from suffering, through the yoga principles and tools, which she can sincerely say through her own trial and error, are truly a wonderful enlightened gift from the sages!

Kerry has a keen eye for detail and ability to read the body, which will certainly add to your understanding of yourself!

Swami Kamalavidya – Kriya Yoga
“Hatha yoga is thought by many to include asana and pranayama, in actual fact it is much more specific than this”, says Paramahamsa Satyananda. “There are practices which are called the Hatha Yoga Shatkarmas (or cleansing techniques) which open the door to the immense treasure of energy that remains dormant within each human being”.

Sanjay Mithal
Sanjay has chosen the Art of Living path and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as his guru. Sanjay is living the spiritual life and is passionate about all that it involves. He has a keen understanding of yoga philosophy and expresses it in a truly accessible way.
