Svastha Yoga Teacher Training Programs
Excellence in Yoga Education
Svastha Yoga Aotearoa presents Yoga Teacher Training programs from foundation through to advanced specialty trainings.
Our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy Training programs have been developed by the Mohan family of Svastha Yoga Ayurveda. They are internationally recognised, highly professional, and personally transfomative programs that will enable you to teach yoga to all populations with clarity and heart.
From her many years of study and guidance from the Mohans, Barbara has also developed shorter Continuing Education Programs that enable qualified yoga teachers to expand their knowledge in areas of interest, and build their CEU credits.
Our programs offer deep insight into ancient wisdom while keeping current with modern science. This ensures that your teaching is relevant to modern life while remaining grounded in, and respectful of the yoga tradition.
