Yoga Teacher Training Intensive November

Practice yoga daily and live the lifestyle.  Immerse yourself fully in the practice of yoga for 3 weeks.  Inquire who you are and get to know yourself.  Connect with nature and come back to a natural state of being.

This intensive is ideal if you do not live in Johannesburg.  The space is beautiful and located in the heart of Sun Valley, Kyalami in Midrand.  You will have Sundays off and tours can be arranged’ or hike in the Inanda Country Base, or enjoy the company of the local horses.

You also have the option to drive daily if you live nearby instead of living on the premises.  Meals are not included in the non residential option. You will have access to a kitchen if you want to prepare food.

This yoga teacher training is registered internationally with the Yoga Alliance and once the course is successfully completed you can register for the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and teach Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga
