About Your Hosts

The Inner Wellness teaching methodology emphasizes mindfulness in breath and movement. They specialise in Yoga Teacher Training as well as courses and workshops on yoga for women's health, children, restoration, and more. They emphasize an alignment based approach for asanas to progressively prepare the body for the breathing practice of pranayama. All classes provide an integration of a range of topics including anatomy, physiology and philosophy. Above all, we encourage the learning of Yoga for the growth of self-practice, believing that is the key to becoming a good teacher. 

Through our Wellness Workshops and Nutritional Cooking Courses we integrate a holistic nutritional approach as taught by Ayurveda, the health and lifestyle science developed by ancient sages of the East, proven to be highly beneficial for a balanced and sustained Yoga practice.
