FEEL yoga facilitator training
focus | engage | experiment | learn

Welcome friends. I suspect you're here because you recognise yoga as an evolving tradition and are looking for training rooted in integrity, creativity, innovation, and autonomy. You want to inspire and facilitate others skillfully and with sovereignty.

You want to lead a new generation of integrative and progressive yoga teachers/facilitators who are heart lead whilst valuing the intersection of Eastern philosophy, Western psychology and neuroscience.

Foreword from your training director
After 20+ years of yoga and meditation practice and 16 years of teaching yoga and training 1000+ people to become yoga teachers, I noticed Yoga being used as a means of escapism instead of being with and being within. This training is not training in escapism; it's engagement, involvement, feeling, learning and action.
