Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training is a world class offering right here in Taranaki. Nestled beneath the Mountain and beside the sea, our beautiful home studio is the perfect retreat for you to learn and flourish. Whether you intend to teach or simply wish to deepen your knowledge of this ancient art form, your experience with us will be life changing.

This modular training is designed to fit in around work and family commitments. Each module is taught as a long weekend 'retreat' and is fully catered with fresh juices, colourful vegetarian meals and enjoyed in a relaxed seaside setting.

Our YTT is consciously intimate to ensure you receive close support and mentorship throughout. Following full attendance and graduation you will receive an internationally recognised qualification with Yoga Alliance, allowing you to teach Yoga in New Zealand and abroad.
