All of our Yoga teachers are trained to the highest standard at our Yoga Alliance registered centres around the world.

Our teachers partake in a rigorous and intensive 200 hour training with Lalit and his expert team of teachers gaining a well rounded education that includes Anatomy, Ayurveda, Pranayama, Yoga Asana, Meditation, Adjustments, Alignment, Modifications, Yoga philosophy and much more.

Our teachers pass on these ancient teachings of yogic science through the traditional lineage of Lalit’s masters in India ensuring you receive a truly authentic  and professional yoga experience. Our teachers are warm, welcoming and committed to sharing this knowledge with people of all backgrounds. We are passionate about sharing Yoga from the Source – with everybody!
