Ongoing and upcoming courses include:

'Back to the Source' - A Foundation in Yoga Course which allows students to deepen their understanding of the practices and teachings of yoga. This course is suitable for those wishing to deepen their personal understanding and knowledge.  It is also the first stage of the Yoga Viveka Teacher Training programme.  However there is no expectation that students on the 'Back to the Source' course will go on to teach.

This course will support you to: 

  • refine and develop your knowledge and practice of asana and pranayama
  • apply your understanding of why and how we practice
  • establish a regular personal yoga practice 
  • explore the wisdom and beauty of the Bhagavad Gita and
  • deepen your understanding of the study of psychology in Patanjali's Yoga Sutra.

Course structure:  60 hours. 1 day per month over 6/7 months.  Small group - max of 8 to facilitate space and time for discussion.
