This is Kaivalya, a 100 hour training module to deepen your connection to the quieter side of yoga. For many of you, this will be a core module of your 300 hour training and development.

This training is dedicated to supporting your learning and understanding of yoga’s inward and contemplative practices. In this module we will move away from the distractions of the physical body and turn towards to connect with the inner wisdoms within.

We will look at five key themes; sankhya philosophy, subtle body energetics, pranayama techniques, meditation practices and restorative yoga. The offer throughout this training is to make space for yourself to slow down and be here completely, consider these learnings as timeless gifts that can support both our lives and teachings. Kaivalya is the advancement towards freedom; learning it, sharing it and embodying it.
