Teacher’s Training

Teacher Training Curriculum

Our next Teacher’s Training Course runs from March – July 2023.

Registration is now OPEN!

Expertly guided by Maritz Steyn, this Yoga Training will offer each person and practitioner a safe space to further embody and explore the fundamentals of yoga i.e.: Asana, Vinyasa, Meditation and Pranayama. The yoga training equips you to teach confidently and awakens your transformation from practitioner of yoga to teacher of yoga. Our curriculum focuses on vinyasa sequences, anatomy, alignment, yoga history and philosophy, breathing and meditation. You will also learn and practice the various aspects about teaching a yoga class with confidence.

Our bodies are our living structures, offering us all the ability to explore our spiritual, energetic and physical qualities as human beings. Therefore this training has a strong emphasis on learning about the body through anatomical understanding. The training offers an experiential approach and fun learning experience.

The course is a 200-hr accredited course, comprising class hours and homework assignments and also a theoretical exam and practical teaching assessments. This is a part time course, Saturday and Sundays. The course is also a personal journey where we as a yoga group discover our abilities as teachers and immerse ourselves in the rich depth of yoga.

This Yoga Teacher Training follows the best international teaching practices and is acrredited with the Yoga Teacher’s Fellowship (YTF) and the International Yoga Federation (IYF). Maritz is a 200hr and 500hr Accredited  Yoga Alliance Teacher .

Many styles of yoga exist today; even the name vinyasa means many things to many yoga teachers and yoga practitioners.
