Unique. Holistic. Powerful.
The Body of Wisdom
Yoga and Mindfulness

The Body of Wisdom teacher training is a holistic and practical course to deepen your yoga practice and offer you tools to teach in a flexible, responsive and sustainable way.

Integrating hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga and mindfulness, our training is a gateway into both form and freedom, movement and stillness, supporting you to take your understanding of yoga to the next level. Hatha is a style that offers structural and postural clarity, while the vinyasa brings movement and ease. Mindfulness is the attitude with which we practice, deepening our wisdom and understanding of the entire body-mind system.

This is a training meet you where you are, as well as expanding your horizons and taking you deeper into the world of embodied yoga practice, whether of not you intend to teach at the end of the course.

Course structure

The course is based around 5 weekends (Friday – Saturday – Sunday) with a beginning and ending module of 5 days. The content consists of 200 hours contact teaching time, extended and deepened by a minimum of 50 hours external studies.

Pre-requisites

Our prerequisites are a willingness to learn and a desire to explore yoga and mindfulness more deeply. We welcome you even if you are not planning to formally teach after this course. Students should have ideally 6 months of regular yoga practice, or other mind-body discipline.
