If not you, who? If not now, when? 

We are delighted to announce our teacher training beginning this November 5, 2022. If you are curious about it in any way please email us at yoganovastudio@gmail.com and we can chat one on one and answer your questions. 

It’s important to us that we get the right people in this training, that means that everyone who invests in this training is aligned with the intentions behind it.

Here are a few things to consider about what would make this training a fit for you;

You either do or do not want to teach yoga AND you DO have a desire to deepen your practice, learn more about yoga and feel confident teaching by the end of the training. 

You are open to realising how teaching yoga can be a pathway to authentic expression of yourself and how these tools can help you with this expression in all areas of your life. 

You would like to learn about how yoga works, what a yoga practice is and is not, and the why behind what you do on your mat.

You want to learn how to do yoga poses at a deeper level and cultivate a life-long practice.

You enjoy Power Yoga and while you will be able to teach any sequence by the end of the training you are open to using it as a template for your learning.

You are eager for the next step in your life, a way to break through the day to day and make your life into the bigger experience that is ultimately possible for you.

There are lots of other reasons to take a training- yes, we will get into chakras and sanskrit and yes, you will learn anatomy but most of all you will leave this training with a brand new energy and vision for yoga and your life. 

We are interested in training teachers to teach at our studio and be in deeper connection with our community. Anyone who wants to teach yoga will be coached, given feedback and given the chance to teach a public class. Those who are ready for a regular class will be able to have one and those who need more coaching will get that too.

Hi everyone! I am the owner of Yoga Nova Studio and this is the 7th teacher training I have led in the last 10 years. Here’s some personal facts about me to help you understand a bit more about where I come from as a teacher and leader. I began my professional career as a Software Salesperson with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Law and Economics (totally yogic, right?). Even though I was doing well in life I had anxiety and this was 20 years ago now (in my early 20s) and we didn’t talk about mental health the way we do today. Thus, my journey began. I found yoga and it saved my mental and physical health. I found my first teacher, Baron Baptiste and I was hooked. I began to see yoga as a metaphor for life and my life changed the more I did yoga, over the course of the next 10 years I studied Power yoga as much as I could as well as taking in other forms of yoga and other teachers. After a good deal of success selling software I felt pulled to open my own space and create a place and a community where the deep physical nature of yoga meets the sacred and so I opened Yoga Nova Studio. I also continued to study somatics with the Strozzi Institute, got several coaching certificates and learnt to read Tarot Cards ;)

I use all my tools during a yoga teacher training from Sales, to Somatics to Tarot and my goal is never changing, it is always just this one thing. I guide people to their own truth and to greater growth and possibility through yoga and I teach them to do the same for others.
