This unique training combines an in-depth anatomical and biomechanical understanding of yoga taught within the holistic framework of the 5 Element system of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda and underpinned by the philosophy of Classical Yoga and Tantra. At the end of the course students leave having learned essential tools and life skills to enhance their health and through which they can inspire others.

Taught in a traditional ashram style, we place a strong emphasis on interactive and experiential learning. The training encourages each student to listen deeply their own process and undertake specific practices for self-inquiry held within the group experience.

Our Style

We cover a variety of styles during the course as we work with the different Elements, so the style serves the purpose of experiencing the Element that we are specifically working. From alignment based Hatha and Vinyasa Flow to the more subtle energetic practices of Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness, students will learn different ways of practicing and teaching.

Morning classes are more dynamic and alignment based. Afternoon practices are a combination of restorative Yin Yoga and meditation.

What are the 5 Elements and do how they relate to yoga?

The 5 Elements is an ancient philosophical tradition which facilitates a deeper understanding of Yoga through infusing your yoga practice with specific movement and intention. In the 5 Elements philosophy Earth grounds, Water flows, Fire energizes, Air lightens and Space expands.

In this Yoga Teacher Training we will use asana, pranayama, meditation and diet to bring your whole system into balance using the qualities of each element. From the static alignment based practices of Iyengar Yoga to the dynamic flowing sequences of Vinyasa and the deep stillness of Yin Yoga you will learn the value of each style of yoga according to the 5 Elements and your individual constitution.

We are a Yoga Alliance fully certified yoga teacher training school

Food as Medicine

Diet is an integral part of this training and the food menu is designed to support all the practices on the course.

Using 80% of organic ingredients and the philosophy of both Macrobiotics and Ayurveda, the food on the training will help your body first detoxify and then regain an optimum balance between flexibility and strength from within, leaving you energized and full of vitality.
