“Participating in the Women´s Health Yoga & Leadership Training was a breakthrough for me….I wanted to start my own business in personal development but I felt a bit lost during the process. This training helped me focus on where I wanted to go, who I am and how to stay centred on my path through yoga, good food and meditation.”

“Through the experience of this Women’s Yoga Teacher Training, I could feel my body and mind connection as never before. It has been a very special time for me. I was able to finally express myself and the sensations in my body, and now, I’m able to recognize my dysfunctional patterns and even learnt how to prevent them from arising. I also learned to trust, to love myself and follow my feeling and my dreams. I love the flexibility and the sensitivity of teachers, always ready to catch up what was going on in the group, making adjustments if needed.”
Francesca Cerami, Art Therapist, Rome, Italy.

Why Are We Passionate About This Training?

Our modern society and traditional hatha yoga approaches taught today are primarily based on masculine and patriarchal principles and paradigms. This imbalance of our culture is why many women experience dis-ease, imbalance and disempowerment in their lives. Signs and symptoms of this include the increase of women’s reproductive health issues, hormonal imbalances, depression and anxiety, and exhaustion and fatigue.

The great news is that you can change and heal your life, and build a life that honors a feminine, heart-centered way of Being Woman, and step into a holistic paradigm of embodied and empowered feminine living.

More than another yoga program, this unique course will inspire you to re-connect to your feminine power, re-ignite your passion and purpose, transform your fears and doubts into trust and intuitive wisdom to increase your self-mastery, and support you to embody your inner teacher and leader from a heart-centered approach of authenticity.

Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or other inquiry you may have. We want to hear from you!

    Attending the Woman´s Yoga & Leadership Training have been one of the most transformative trainings, I have done. Being a fulltime teacher and studio owner, life gets too busy and I came to this training with the intention of practicing and deepening myself in the studies and in myself, more than just learning about new concepts intellectually.
    With Sofia´s and Atira´s loving, professional, transformative and inspiring teachings and guidance, I feel like a new woman. In fact, I’m prouder than ever to be a woman! I now know how to fully honor my womanly being and cycle in order to discover even more gifts and superpowers in this life as a spiritual female being. It feels like the beginning of a new journey, where I’ll be closer to myself than I even knew possible.
    Thank you to my beautiful, fully present, passionate and wise teachers for this! I’ll refrain from calling them Gurus but in relation to the feminine energy in and around us, they did take me from some darkness/a place of not knowing to Light/a place of seeing.
    I have lived and worked with the 5 elements since my first training with Sofia and this training added an extra dimension to this wisdom of nature.
    I can highly recommend this training for any woman who wishes to make a positive difference in her life - and in other people lives! When we understand our own nature better, we can understand others better and make a profound impact on the life of the people we touch.
