Hatha Yoga is the source of most Western yoga practices which spread from Hatha’s approach for stilling the mind and accessing the deeper levels of ourselves through the body and particularly the breath. A usual Hatha class structure would be a moderately paced practice combining yoga pose (asana), breathing awareness, pranayama (breathing practices), meditation and the chanting of mantras to open or close the class.

A Hatha Yoga practice aims to balance yoga practitioner’s body, keeping it healthy in order to be free from distractions and access the subtle purification of the mind. The Hatha Yoga practitioner will eventually develop a subtle awareness within the body that aids in cultivating a meditative state.

In Therapeutic Hatha Yoga each student will be assessed in order to give appropriate asana or modification that will correct physical, mental or other levels of imbalance over time. Using an alignment approach to address injury and imbalance students are taught how to modify poses with the correct use of props and physical hands on adjustment to work with students of all kinds.

Ashtanga Vinyasa is a dynamic heating practice that aims to detoxify and still the mind. Ujjai pranayama/breathing is practiced throughout to bring about this detoxifying effect. Ashtangis focus on one point or Dristi to avoid distraction and go inward whilst engaging bandha locks to contain the energy created.

Traditionally Ashtanga is a fixed sequence where each practitioner would practice in the same way every day. The teacher would watch and assist and give the next pose in the series when the student was ready. The student would eventually build up a full primary series and then be introduced to the next. This is a systematical approach allowing for the body to gain flexibility and strength slowly.

Vinyasa Yoga is a modern fast-paced practice derived from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system and the Guru T. Krishnamacharya himself. The essence of the practice is to flow between yoga postures while breath and Drishti (eye gaze) are synchronized. Every change is smoothly linked to a breath. The breath supports the movement starting with one posture then onto the next. The difference between ashtanga and Vinyasa is that the latter has no set sequence and each pose flows into the next organically.

Modern day Vinyasa is popular worldwide and this Multistyle Yoga Teacher Training focus on instructing students in intelligent sequencing that both strengthens the body and allows the flow of energy to move. The facilitators teach from an alignment point of view and so even though students will move more quickly they emphasis a holistic and safe practice that heals and not harms. Students will learn how to structure a class from an alignment, anatomy and energy point of view.

Only by experience can a yoga teacher be authentic. This training offers student vital advice on class room management techniques, structure, sequencing and organization of classes. As well as confidence building activities. Students are guided through ways of instruction, demonstration and adjustment including hands on and the use of props. Each day students will practice the skills taught to them and will receive feedback from both teachers and peers.

Ethics and business of yoga will also be covered during these lessons.

Anatomy is instructed from a yogic and very practical perspective on this Teacher Training. As students explore body alignment through their own yoga practice they will begin to learn the bio mechanics of the body in anatomy. Basics of joints, muscles and skeleton become clear. Allowing plenty of time for students to explore and understand. Students will be able to understand which major joints and muscles are being used within a yoga pose and in which way this can impact a yoga practice. Then apply that knowledge to modify or adjust any students practice regardless of injury or ailment.

Teachers have studied extensively and had firsthand experience of transformation through their own yoga practice. This syllabus focuses on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Ashtanga Yoga meaning eight limbs. Classes are interactively and discussion is encouraged between students and teacher. Classes are taught from a scientific perspective whilst applying spiritual and philosophical values of yoga to modern day life and the challenges we face.

The styles of meditation offered on this course syllabus vary greatly, you will learn both active and inactive styles to connect with a style that really suits you. They include; Chakra Meditations, Kundalini Meditations, Third Eye Meditations, Sufi Meditations, Tantra Meditations, Mind to No Mind Meditations, Intensive Breath Meditations, Sound Meditations and Silent Meditations. A truly unique opportunity to experience so many styles of meditation in one place.

Pranayama or breathing practice will be instructed and students will be encouraged to run-through and perfect these practices. Students will learn the benefits and precautions for each technique in order to support their own yogic development and instruct their students.


After the completion of the 100 hour teacher training the student will receive a certificate.
