Back2Roots 200hr YOGA Teacher training


Your Wilderness Awaits

The core of our existence is so easy to overlook because it’s not noisy or clamouring for our attention like all the other aspects of the human mind. And yet, there is so often a feeling of something other than, deeper than, more real than…

Embark with us on our Back2Roots Teacher Training ~ a 25-day immersive journey tracing the threads of Self, the sutras of the body, all the way back to our roots.

With an attitude born of awe and curiosity as our guiding force, we will map our inner topography through the transformative lens of Yoga to reveal the wild ecology of our essential nature, and in turn, share the gifts that are ours alone to give.

Following this potent path, we re-member that our true nature is creativity, that when nourished and fertilised flourishes us into beings that are life-giving and life-enriching, both to ourselves and the world around us.

This is a process of reciprocity and relentless re-discovery. As we become more intimate with our untamed internal wilderness, so too can we then foster attitudes that allow a lively and respectful dialogue between body and earth and other.

The art and arc of the training has been curated to coax you layer by layer into the deepest embodiment of the yogic and tantric approach possible, empowering you with practical skills of self awareness to make lasting changes in your own health and wellbeing, and of all who you’re blessed to meet moving forwards.

We will focus on the powerful foundations of the practice ~ first clearing and purifying our physical sheaths that are blocked and stagnant, before delving into the more subtle energetics of the practice. As a family, we will illuminate the myriad of Ways for one another to weave and expand our consciousness and potential through every threshold of the bodymap ~ from finite to infinite.

Born of the belief that our essence is Liberated, Creative and Joyful in nature, this training is an invitation into the empirical science ~ self experimentation and empowerment, not only for those who wish to become teachers, but also those who want to expand their inner wisdom and take their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual practice to new richness and depth.
