We believe that a thorough understanding of the above approaches are imperative to the modern Yoga Teacher, deliberately designed for these ancient teachings and traditions to be delivered to the modern world without compromising its tradition.    This approach provides our Graduates with the opportunity of entering the world of Yoga Teaching harnessed with confidence and a wealth of knowledge in order to provide a high standard of teaching to prospective students.

“The teacher will find the student” as they say…. Well it has been so true for me, going all the way to Melbourne Australia to find the amazing Moksha Yoga team which made my utopist project of becoming a yoga teacher come true. I will never forget one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, intense and incredibly nourishing; getting me ready, not only to teach, but to LIVE Yoga.” Moksha Graduate

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
