Ongoing study is essential to your development as a teacher, and our commitment is to equip you with everything you need to keep evolving in your teaching.

Each of these modules is completely self-contained (ie there are no prerequisites other than a 200-hour training), as well as being completely integrated with all our other modules which, when combined, serve as a rich tapestry of practical tools, yogic wisdom and heartfelt inspiration. You may take the modules in any order, and over the period of 12, 18 or 24 months, or longer if you wish!

Alignment, Assisting & Anatomy - 50 hr Module

Join Nicole Walsh for this in depth journey into the anatomical and energetic intelligence in your body, refine your practice, and discover a deeper understanding of the human body through yoga asana.

A good foundation in Anatomy is essential for yoga teachers, and helpful for those dedicated yogis who want to have a deeper connection to their own practice.

Our focus is on keeping people safe, preventing injury and dealing with common anatomical and physiological issues that can often be present during yoga practice.  We'll tune in to the subtle nuances of human biomechanics through the structural alignment of the musculoskeletal system, and the effect of yoga practice on the body in relation to stability, strength and mobility.

Building on knowledge of anatomical function, Nicole will guide you through an understanding of the energetic pathways of the body based on the Five Vayus (movements of energy). From this knowledge, you'll discover primary alignment actions in yoga asana through observation, personal practice and assisting. 

Hands-on assisting is a topic of much discussion in recent years, and where possible, a skilful hands-on assist can be an exceptional teaching tool, and may be transformational and empowering to receive if the approach is sincere, sensitive and respectful of each student's personal needs.

We live in a world now where the ability to teach alignment with 'hands-off' assisting techniques is essential. This training has evolved to explore ways to enhance your teaching with skilful verbal cues, embodied suggestion and demonstration of asana refinement and energetics.

Through this five-day teacher training, you'll build a deeper awareness of yoga asana within your own body, and enjoy transferring this knowledge through deep discussion and a delicious exchange of hands-on AND hands-off assists with your fellow trainees. 

Expand your repertoire and 'yogic toolkit', while gaining confidence whether you are practicing or teaching!


WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • How to see people’s bodies rather than just poses - techniques of observation so you know how to be effective when guiding your students in asana practice. 
  • Structural alignment of the body, with an understanding of the many types of variations in bone and joint structure, and how these affect the practice of asana.
  • The energetics of the moving body - understand the prana vayus, the movements of energy through the body; and how the key actions of any asana can be enhanced by tuning in to these energy pathways.
  • Understand both the physical and energetic pathways to movement, so that your teaching becomes grounded in both science and philosophy.
  • How to build healthy relationships with your students, cultivating trust and connection.
  • Learn how to support, stabilise, awaken and deepen your students’ practice through the different types of hands-on and hands-off assisting
  • How to offer subtle verbal refinements to individuals and to the whole class, for a more embodied asana experience
  • The principles of assisting and adjusting - how to be clear about your intention, and adjust with clarity and purpose
  • How to know who, when and how to hands-on assist, and when to ask for permission, so that any hands-on assists become an empowering and potent teaching tool
  • The magic of touch - learn about different types of touch, how and when to use them

The Art of Sequencing - 50 hr Module

Being a modern yoga teacher requires many skills and talents ranging from the practical to the intangible.  Empowered teaching comes from the skilful integration of your own embodied wisdom with that of timeless yoga knowledge.  This course translates this knowledge into a practical toolkit of yoga class sequencing and teaching skills that will inspire you to embody confidence as you take your teaching to the next level.  

Sequencing is both an art and a science, and through this course you’ll learn a variety of sequencing techniques that prepare your students' bodies safely and intelligently as they progress from simple to complex asana.

TESTIMONIALS

I've just completed the 50 hour sequencing module with Nicole and I feel so inspired to create meaningful, effective sequences! Nicole's 20 years of teaching experience have created a highly skilful and unique methodology that she so generously shared with us in the course and the sequences she gave us in the manual. I am so grateful for these teachings and have been able to use them in my classes straight away. Thank you Nicole for sharing your bountiful wisdom with us, we are so lucky to have you teach us!!!  ~ Cara, Yoga Teacher & Studio Owner


"The sequencing training with Nicole was fantastic. I used to find planning sequences really tedious work and never really knew where to begin. Nicole's instruction and helpful tips have made the process so much more enjoyable. I now feel more confident in my ability to provide an enjoyable and safe experience for my students through creative transitions and purposeful sequencing." ~ Nabila, Yoga Teacher

Meditation Teacher Training - 50 hr Module

THE SUBTLE ARTS OF YOGA MEDITATION

Meditation and the art of Mudra, Pranayama and Mantra cultivates a quality of attention, curiosity and wonder that can transform a yoga practice and your life.  

Meditation is a natural, instinctive process that all human beings can access with skillful guidance.  Our bodies are designed to enter deeply restful states so that healing and rejuvenation can happen in the most natural way possible. However, because meditation is a very internal practice (not something that can be seen like a yoga pose), and because there are lot of myths around what actually happens in meditation, many people are quick to believe they are failing when they practice meditation.

Traditional yogic meditation practices were often designed for 'renounciates' (think monks in monasteries and yogis in Himalayan caves!). Such people have have renounced their everyday worldly lives of work, play and family, and have devoted their lives to perfecting specific meditation techniques. These techniques often don't translate easily to our modern interactive lives, and as such meditation can sometimes feel unattainable.

Some of the myths of how to meditate that students often state are: "I find it hard to sit still", or "I can't stop my thoughts", or " I want to calm my busy mind". We are here to help you bust those myths so that your students are able to discover a rich and rewarding meditation practice, with a technique that is perfect for them. The truth is,   >span class="s1">Rather than one single technique that is imposed by a teacher or tradition, often designed for someone with a completely different life, such as a male monk.  You will learn the language and skills required to encourage your students how to find their own special 'doorway' into meditation.

In this course you will learn skills drawn from the wisdom of Tantric Hatha Yoga, to guide your student’s awareness through the 'koshas', or the layers of one's being from gross to subtle.   You will learn the language required to encourage your students how to find their own special 'doorway' into meditation. You'll discover how to guide people's attention through a yoga class, allowing students to become awakened to the full potential of yoga. Helping to guide your students in a natural, life-affirming approach to meditation is a wonderful gift, whether you aim to teach meditation as part of an asana class, or in dedicated meditation sessions.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Learn the language and presence to guide meditation instinctively and effortlessly.
  • Explore timeless meditation practices from the yoga tradition.
  • Learn the science behind how and why certain meditation practices work for everyday people like yourself, and some work better for monks.
  • Discover the skill to awaken natural instincts as doorways to effortless meditation.
  • Explore the physical body as an expression and tool of connection to essence, through the practice of mudra. Realise the potential of mudra to enhance your own teaching and communication skills.
  • Deepen your experience of the flow of prana through classical and evolutionary breath practices and kriyas, and the skills to teach them to your students.
  • Discover mantra as a tool of thought to bring harmony and focus to the mind.
  • Unlock your ability to use language as a guide to a healthy flow of emotion.
  • Become sensitive to the teaching power of shunya (silence or space).
  • Learn the secrets to create the space for a truly relaxing and restorative savasana.

Lunar Arts Teacher Training - 50 hr Module

DISCOVER YOUR LUNAR 'BHAVANA'

In the Tantric Hatha Yoga system, we consciously cultivate two aspects: the solar side - dynamic, activating, heating, and invigorating; and the lunar side - restorative, regenerative, cooling, and healing. 

Much of modern yoga reflects the solar aspect of being which in a way, is evident in the life of moderns humans, with so much focus on 'doing' and so little focus on 'being'.  Cultivating lunar 'bhavana', or 'feeling state' allows a subtle shift towards being more inwardly attentive, and the practices move towards being more nourishing and healing for the body and mind.  

If you enjoy a 'Yin-style' practice, you'll appreciate the subtlety of the Lunar Arts of yoga. However, where a typical Yin yoga class may be very still and static, a Lunar Flow will explore rhythmic, pulsation-type movements that regenerate the tissues of your body, revive the flow of prana through the energy pathways, and elicit states of deep peace and inner harmony.  

These Lunar practices are adaptable, and can be suitable for anyone needing to follow or more nourishing rhythm in their yoga practice and life, anyone healing from chronic stress-related illness, pregnant goddesses looking to nurture themselves through the trimesters of their pregnancy.


WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Discover the sacred alchemy of Lunar yoga class experience from gross to subtle, using the model of the Koshas.
  • Help your students to explore the layers of their being - physical body, energy body, mind, emotions, intuition and bliss.
  • Learn the language and presence to guide meditative Lunar Flow practices instinctively and effortlessly.
  • Explore the physical body as an expression and tool of connection to essence, through flowing, Lunar-style namaskars that cultivate peace and restfulness.
  • Understand the dynamics of long-hold 'mudrasanas', and their affects on the physical body (fascia) and energy body (nadis).
  • Deepen your experience of the flow of prana through classical and evolutionary breath practices and kriyas, and the skills to teach them to your students.
  • Explore cooling and balancing Lunar pranayama practices.
  • Learn traditional Sanskrit mantras that cultivate harmonious inner rhythms.
  • Explore timeless meditation practices from the Tantric yoga tradition.
  • Discover the skill to effortlessly guide Lunar relaxation practices and Yoga Nidra.
  • Become sensitive to the teaching power of shunya (silence or space).
  • Learn the secrets to create the space for a truly relaxing and restorative savasana.

Language, Theming & Philosophy - 25 hr Module

THE ART OF AWAKENED TEACHING

As yoga teachers we are essentially communicators or guides to an experience that is often beyond words. Because of this, it's sometimes challenging to find the right words to express the desired sentiment when you're teaching a yoga class.  Learn to teach skilfully by weaving your own personal experience of yoga, with the wisdom that flows from the practices and language of self-inquiry. This dynamic combination of elements results in a class that involves much more than the technical instruction of asana.  In this practical course, delve into the art of essential language to inspire and uplift your students.

Artfully link together anatomical awareness and yoga philosophy in a way that speaks to your students’ bodies, hearts and minds.  Develop your own unique language and teaching style that offer students the exploration of yoga asana through form, function and feeling.


WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Develop your own unique language and teaching style that offerS students the exploration of yoga asana through form, function and feeling.
  • Learn to layer your teaching instructions with clear and relevant anatomical detail, while sharing your understanding of the benefits of the asana.  
  • Discover ways to speak directly and succinctly, using essential language cues.
  • Learn the language of self-inquiry that will allow your students to delve into their own unique experience of yoga.
  • Create your own language style that is inspiring and heartfelt, so you connect to your students' hearts and minds.
  • Weave yoga philosophy into your classes in relevant, inspiring ways

Meditation Teacher Training with Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine 

You are invited to participate in this in-depth training with global leaders in the field of meditation, Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine (USA). This training is specifically designed for yoga teachers to discover valuable tools and techniques to incorporate meditation into their yoga teaching, or use it as a stand alone modality to enhance the wellbeing of their students.

Meditation has become mainstream in our western culture, with millions of people practicing some form of meditation daily.  It's now well-known in the scientific and medical worlds that meditation is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, for people to feel less stressed and more connected to what's important in life.

"In the modern West, there is a revolution underway, an awakening, such that yoga and meditation have become completely mainstream.  The challenge now is to train enough meditation teachers to meet the need. It will be decades before there are enough skilled meditation teachers. Let's get to work." ~ Lorin Roche

What you'll learn

  • The science and practice of meditation - meditation is a completely natural and instinctive capacity that every human has - understanding the body's innate regulatory function of rest and renewal is key.
  • Recognizing spontaneity and rhythm - we all experience spontaneous meditative states, and a skilled meditation teacher will learn how to cooperate with their student's inner nature.
  • The subtle senses - develop the ability to recognise and utilise the five senses as gateways into meditation
  • Instinctive wisdom - recognising and honouring our powerful and innate wisdom for self-healing and self-evolving
  • The five elements - meditation teachers need to be intimate with the five elements (Tattvas) of earth, water, fire, air and ether, as revealed by the five senses.
  • Mandala of emotions - understand the full spectrum of emotions that make up a large part of everyone's meditative experience - one of the biggest challenges meditators face.  
  • Language and listening skills - meditation teachers need a new language to guide students into their inner world, and also require skills for effective communication and listening to their students' experience.
  • Meditation techniques - there are literally thousands of techniques of meditation, and skill is required to find the right technique to suit individuals. The Radiance Sutras presents 112 different doorways into meditation to help you guide students to find what they love about meditation, and dive in.
  • Meditation secrets for women - as women make up around 70% of yoga and meditation students, learning to vary your approach for teaching meditation to women will open up doorways to a radical understanding of how to relate to female students.  Presented by Camille Maurine.
  • The opportunity to meditate daily with acclaimed meditation teachers and authors, Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine
  • Daily morning asana practice to integrate asana and meditation
