Yoga adjust 4 croppedThis is a ‘non-denominational’ yoga course, training you in the broad tradition of Classical Hatha Yoga. You will explore elements of several popular styles of asana practice without favouring any one style as you are guided to develop your own individual style best suited to your needs.

Our core values emphasize safety and an individualized approach over dogma, and we encourage you to explore your own practice and experience of yoga.

I can say hand on heart, it was the best decision I ever made – Learning how to be authentic & true to myself and how to truly live life with utter passion. I gifted this experience to myself, and to teach what I love wholeheartedly will be my absolute pleasure


“To me, it has been a life changing journey; the valuable journey guided by you and Qi teachers cannot be measured by $$. I believe that I have invested very wisely in 2014….this is the end of the beginning!”


“It is hard to imagine that over a month has passed since our course concluded. Rather than time having a diminishing factor our gratitude and respect grows by the day.
How fortunate we are that such a wonderful course exists – and that we have had mentors who have not only shared their knowledge with dedication but given their heart to all the students who have been lucky enough to undertake the journey. Keiko and I had originally only thought to do the first term but the surrounding warmth and gifted teaching really made the decision of continuing so much easier.”

Leon & Keiko

“What I want to say is how much support I feel there is from the teachers at Qi whilst on the  course and that it makes it a special experience in many ways.  Thank you.”


“Yoga has completely changed me. That year last year just was so good for me. No newagey stuff, but just feel so much more comfortable in my skin. Thanks for helping me find my way! “


“Throughout this whole entire year, I think I always ‘hoped’ that yoga and teaching was something I might be able to do. Up until that point I had never even entertained the thought of pursuing my yoga further. I think I got caught up in the (incorrect) idea that you had to be ‘perfect’ to be a yoga teacher (so much for my projections – holding teachers up on a pedestal! I wish I had read Donna Farhi earlier)! so never even considered it. I wasn’t aware that I was already perfect. So I am very grateful to you and Nik and Joan and Janice for emphasising that point. Although I obviously haven’t done any other teacher training programs, I get the feeling that this total acceptance of who you are and being true to yourself is something very unique.

I feel very fortunate and lucky to have the support and kindness of you and the other teachers on this course. I can only imagine how much more difficult this last few months would have been had I not been doing this course, and struggling through on my own. Yes I have my family and friends but it has been really great to be able to talk to such compassionate people who have had experience with depression first hand, and in conjunction with the change in my own thoughts and beliefs as a result of this years study it has made this experience more bearable.”
