Advanced Yoga Training Modules

A 200hr yoga training is great to get you started as a teacher but it is not enough to truly understand and meet the needs of your students.

What I started to notice when I was putting my trainings together was that advanced trainings were mostly offering advanced physical asana training. While this can be satisfying on a personal level does it really help you teach the majority of people who come to you for teaching? Or those who could come to you but feel that yoga isn't something they can do?

TESTIMONIALS

I've done yoga in different parts of the world for a long time but it was meeting this lovely lady (and the other yoginis on the way) that finally made me take it more seriously and bring yoga into all parts of my life - as it should be!

 

Steph is truly inspirational and motivational and she makes you feel like there's nothing you can't do. Namaste!

I would have been happy if this course had never ended! It has been such a delight to meet Steph and to be held by her and the group. Steph presents the course content in such a grounded and accessible way and brings humour and humanness to the learning. This has made it safe to share and to experiment and I have really appreciated that. For me, this feels just the beginning of a longer journeying with Steph and all the wisdom and experience she shares so generously. Thank you!
