Starting in February 2020!

Super-flexible yoga teacher training/further studies program on the Gold Coast!

The module-based program gives you the flexibility to attend any number of stand-alone modules in your interest area, meaning you're not locked into a program and teacher that may not fit with your expectations and goals.

This is a flexible, module-based program with a strong supportive, mentoring focus. It is open to both qualified yoga teachers AND unqualified yoga students or practitioners who can:
