Hooked on yoga!?

Are you interested in deepening & cultivating your love of yoga and all it has to offer?

Then come join us on an extensive journey of knowledge and self discovery in our 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in English.

Discover the wonderful world of yoga and your true potential both on & off the mat with us at Private Yoga Institute.

Yoga is so much more than practicing asanas!

Our carefully crafted curriculum incorporates the essential aspects of yoga to develop your inner yogi, empower your practice & inspire others to live a life of passion.

With roots stemming from Ashtanga yoga & Patanjali’s 8-limb path, our training integrates not only the physical components of yoga but also Anatomy, Technique & Teaching Methodology, the sacred elements of Meditation, Mantras & Yoga Philosophy.

Our experienced teachers are here to guide you on your own personal path of discovery, enriching your practice & knowledge with individualised care & attention.

At Private Yoga Institute we stand by our name, limiting our courses to small groups so we can meet the specific needs of each participant. You will leave confident in yourself and able to share your yoga experience with others and the world around you.
