“I am guided by the vision of what I believe Yoga can be in a person’s life, of what it has been in my own life, and the goal of Moksha Yoga is to transform peoples lives through this ancient practice, in order to bring happiness, contentment, peace and fulfilment to all areas of ones own life and then in return, to share these gifts with others. This ancient practice has a place in our modern world, more so now than ever before, and through the experiments of our own Truth, our own practice, these Teachings have the capacity to bring about enormous transformation and change.”
All of the Teachers at Moksha are highly qualified and experienced Yoga Teachers and practitioners who are passionate about Yoga & Health and share their knowledge and appreciation of Yoga in their classes with a unique and individual style.

The Moksha Academy offers a thorough, holistic, comprehensive and in-depth YTT Course that honours the ancient practices and traditions of Yoga yet blends these teachings with a modern western focus such as Applied Anatomy and Physiology, Yoga Therapeutics, Energy Anatomy and Yoga Research Studies, imperative in order for these traditions to be delivered to the modern word.
