Online TSYTT-I 20h (trauma-sensitive yoga teacher training, level 1), cohort: 6 Oct – 10 November ’22



These training programs are and will continue to be informed by current and world-class academic research in trauma, trauma recovery and trauma-sensitive yoga. Not all trauma-sensitive yoga is created equal, and it’s improtant to study those methods proven in research and clinical trials to be effective and safe for trauma survivors. We ensure we do no harm in this way. You can read more about my background here.


It is very hard, if not impossible, to teach from a place with no lived experience. It is for this reason that these training programs have a strong component of self-reflection, and practical hours training (personal practice and teaching practice). These are training programs that will teach you immense amounts about yourself, and promote personal growth. From here you are able to start facilitating highly effective, evidence-based, trauma-sensitive yoga.


We appreciate the difficulty some students may face in travelling to training, both in terms of cost and personal care responsibilities. For this reason, our training is conducted entirely online. We have ensured the integrity of the training while ensuring it is as financially accessible to those that would like to attend. Every live theory class is recorded and will be available for veiwing for the duration of the training program. So you are able to attend around your work schedule. We also offer full and part scholarships on these training programs. Please join my mailing list at the top of this page to be notified of our upcoming scholarship opportunities.

Rooted in local context

The South African Stress and Health Study (SASH) found that the trauma exposure of the general population in present-day South Africa is approximately 78.3%. It is no surprise that South Africans are exposed to very high levels of trauma, this is higher than the global average. However there is unfortunately limited research on trauma-sensitive yoga in the South African and broader African context. We are changing that! In this training, we are sensitive to the local context of our students and their communities. We take international, world-class research and understand it through a local lens. This ensures effectiveness in our individual contexts, for our students.
