In this comprehensive yoga teacher training we empower you with the skills that will enable you to practice and teach yoga competently. We aim to nurture you on the transformative and life-enriching path of self-discovery and in guiding others in this process.

Golden Flow teacher trainings impart tools that are quality, professional, intelligent and will enhance your practice and teaching skills. As well as those who intend to teach yoga, we also welcome those who would like to deepen their own yoga journey or seek a path to general health and well being.

This course has a focus on yoga for individual needs, tailored to suit each person and circumstance.  

The Golden Flow Yoga training is a fusion of all aspects of yoga. It brings together the alignment and attention of Iyengar, the breath and Prana flow of Vinyasa and the lifestyle and philosophy of exploring and living the Eightfold Path of yoga.

Students will learn to capably instruct a solid and safe Hatha-style class and then have the freedom and encouragement to find their own intuition, flow and pathways within that. It’s not just about learning asana – this is a holistic, wholehearted training that will deepen the student’s yogic knowledge and practices.
