A big thank you to such a great group of trainees, we all had a fun time with many positive learning curves along the way.
There were a variety of guest teachers who shared their knowledge and expertise. We had lots of hands on Anatomy sessions which offered us a deeper understanding of how the human body works and functions.

As part of the training, all trainees had to attend and either participate or observe various yoga classes.
During my beginner’s class they each taught a posture to gain experience and confidence. This was done after many practice sessions so they were all feeling ready when the time came and did a great job :).
We enjoyed some walking meditation sessions in Nelson and also on the beach in Golden Bay. It’s such an incredible experience to consciously take one step at a time, feeling and being in touch with all the muscles, bones and weight distribution as we move from one step to the next. And then we have the mind to work with, to continually observe our thoughts of perhaps speeding up, boredom, frustration etc, without reaction.
As part of the training we offered an Ayurvedic module which was a full day and presented by a traditional Ayurvedic Doctor who is based in Singapore and was fortunately presenting workshops throughout NZ.
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. A very interesting day and an important part of Yoga training.
Stay close for updates of the next 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training here in Nelson, NZ (end of March/April 2019).
