Svastha Yoga Therapy Foundations
I took the 300hr Therapeutic Yoga teacher training with Barbara Coley in 2022 and I cannot begin to describe how much it changed not only my teaching but also my personal practice. Learning from a teacher who is grounded in a solid practice, has a strong lineage of teachings and really understands what it is like to teach yoga in New Zealand has been such a valuable experience. Barbara is nurturing yet firm in her approach to teaching and really gets the best out of her students. The deep and open discussions and the community that Barbara has created served to deepen my own practice and boost my confidence as a teacher. Making the investment in this training is the best thing I have done for myself.
The Svastha Yoga Therapy Training has taught me so much about the mind, the body, and the breath, and the different challenges people can face in those fields.
The training is detailed, clearly laid out, and offers a great balance of theory and practical. I feel well equipped to be working with clients on a one on one basis, and to be able to cater our sessions specifically to what they’re needing.
The training offers a holistic approach to healing with depth that I haven’t found in ofhers trainings. I’ve really enjoyed working with Barbara and the Svastha Yoga Team.
