Internationally accredited Yoga Teacher Training

Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training, based in Auckland, New Zealand, presents a comprehensive programme of Yoga Alliance, and Yoga AU/NZ accredited Yoga Teacher Trainings. The programmes developed through an intention to offer teacher trainees an integrated approach to the science, philosophy, tradition and art of teaching yoga.

Core faculty members are Neal Ghoshal, Sam Loe, Haidee Stairmand and Karla Brodie. Guest tutors Sandra Palmer, Vanessa Bailey, Suzanne Day and Raiha Maunsell who all bring a joy, passion and wealth of experience to the course.

Course content includes in-depth experiential anatomy and physiology, Yoga philosophy, Yoga Asana and Pranayama. Teacher Trainees develop and refine skills of observation, language and touch which may serve a life long, sustaining and inspired personal and teaching practice. Beyond the initial 200 hour training we offer further profesional development training modules. The training modules include Restorative Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga.

” Generous and vastly different teachers combine to offer something more unique and valuable than expected. It is beyond yoga as I knew it – it was an investment in the rest of my life. Neal, Karla and faculty don’t tell you how it is. They share their wealth of knowledge, and introduce you to the teacher within and what you already are. All lessons are applicable off the mat, creating what I imagine are sincere teachers of depth and with soul. Words can hardly express how grateful I am for what I learned with their guidance in just three weeks, the most important of which was connecting with myself and others in a truly authentic, supportive, caring and sustainable way that I can’t wait to pay forward as a teacher. Thank you! “
