Perfect for students of yoga, whether they are wishing to step into the wonderful and rewarding world of teaching, or simply deepen and evolve their own practice. We normally ask that students have at least one year of practical yoga experience of around 3-5 hours per week before joining. However, if you have attended an immersion course/retreat, or have less experience and feel that you are ready, then we are happy to discuss each individual case.

My heart is full of gratitude and I am ready to share it with others… May the light that I received ignite the light within all those whose path crosses with mine…” – Tanya Marie Green

These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.
The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice.

Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to “advanced” pranayama.
