Self EnquiryPre-requisites for teacher training:
To be discussed with Tracey Rohan-Irwin on an individual interview basis.

The challenging nature of our training offers the opportunity for optimum growth and transformation. On this course, it is very important that a process of self-inquiry is initiated and students understand the essence of yoga beyond the techniques.

The objective of self inquiry is to encourage awareness of how the tools and techniques of yoga can bring about inner transformation. This process of positive change is not always comfortable, yet always extremely rewarding.

Shades of Yoga facilitates a holistic understanding of the physical practice of yoga as well as integration of yogic philosophy and lifestyle in order for our teacher trainers to confidently share and guide others on their yoga journey.
