Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga | Teacher Training 2024

Application are open for the LoveYoga Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher Training 2024


The LoveYogaNewZealand RYT 200-hour teacher training is a highly reputable, comprehensive course that provides a rite of passage of insight, self discovery and growth. It is a wonderful journey to embark upon that integrates not just into your practice and teaching, but into your life. Sign up in the knowledge that you will emerge from the experience with greater knowledge, deeper connection to breath and movement and experiential understanding. The training is split into five modules, which we will explore through embodied, integrated hands-on learning.

Our approach to the entire training comes from the understanding that we all need both compassion and strength. The training builds on the traditional Ashtanga Primary Series, but steps much further into the realms or functional movement, somatics and energetics. We ensure you are well equipped with effective tools and techniques to support students and to develop your own personal practice, far beyond the yoga mat.


There are 5 modules that make up the LoveYoga Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teaching Training. Your trainer Debi Hendra has been running teacher trainings since 2010. Each one a very personal experience, since number are kept low to maximise individual learning. It is a commitment from both teacher and student to take part in a training, and therefore something that is worth doing over a period of time, to allow time for pause, reflection and growth.
