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 are hosted on Zoom, live, with your course facilitator (and can be done as a part of your complete Teacher Training, or by those wishing to just learn more about yoga). You will receive all class recordings.

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 both South Africa & India, and allow for full immersion into the course material, as well as all the relevant practical work needed to certify at the 200RYT level.

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.
