About the Training

This Vinyasa-based training is designed to transform your teaching and practice. There will be a thorough breakdown of asanas, Vinyasa and transitions between poses. Techniques will be taught on how to instruct and adjust poses safely and effectively.

You will leave the training empowered as a practitioner and a teacher with a deeper understanding of Vinyasa practice and other aspects of yoga beyond the asanas.

Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers and dedicated practitioners to gain an in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of yoga practice.
