The Heart of Yoga Studies Course is an incredible journey of self discovery. You will have a unique opportunity to learn about the deeper aspects and possibilities of yoga and apply what you learn for your personal growth.
Is this course right for me?

This is a truly transformational experience where you will make new friends in a beautiful community of like-minded people. Not only will you gain a greater understanding of yoga, you will learn to understand and nurture yourself in a whole new way.
Students who complete this course will also have the foundations for further yoga studies and will gain recognition of prior learning for The Yoga Institute’s diploma level teacher training program.
What style of yoga?
Our approach to Yoga is based on the world-renowned teachings from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya (widely known as the ‘father of modern yoga’) and his son TKV Desikachar (pictured).
We focus on integrating all aspects of yogic practice including asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudras, philosophy and psychology, and adapting practices to the individual.
We emphasise applying the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga to the challenges of modern lives.
As Krishnamacharya said: “Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga.”
