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
