Study your Yoga Theory modules online

This course is divided into 3 modules - two of which can be done from the comfort of your own home. These modules can be self-paced, allowing for financial ease and assimilation of the course material.

Modules 1 & 2 consist of pre-recorded lecture videos, along with bi-monthly live zoom Tutorial Classes with your course presenter, to discuss theory and answer questions.

All practical hours can be signed off at a yoga studio near you (wherever you are currently doing yoga).

Module 3 is an away-retreat which must be attended by those wishing to certify. Currently these retreats are hosted throughout the year in South Africa, and allow for full immersion into the course material, as well as all the relevant practical work needed to certify at the 200RYT level.

Namaste, my name is Ryan Edmonds (Sevak Hari Singh)


As the principal, and lead trainer, of the ISHTA Yoga School, I am honoured to be able to share the teachings of our proud lineage with a new generation of internationally certified Yoga Teachers (RYT 200 & RYT 300).

I have trained and accredited dozens of world-class Yoga Teachers, and my ultimate passion is to co-create a gorgeous unfolding of Self, working hand-in-hand with my students.

Yoga changes lives! It has the potential to heal our bodies, our minds and our planet.

In loving service,
