More about the Course
Developed by Swami Shantimurti Saraswati of Ashram Yoga in New Zealand where Shakti trained, the course covers a full spectrum of yoga practices for beginners through to intermediate practitioners.
200-hour Yoga Alliance-accredited Yoga Teacher Training
The Course Elements
- Asanas: yoga postures – dynamic, static and corrective postures for the various bodily systems, e.g. digestive, hormonal, lymphatic, reproductive etc.
- Pranayama: yogic breathing techniques to both energize and balance. The breath is the most vital process of the body and is intimately linked to all aspects of human experience. Breath control practices increase the flow of prana (life force energy) in the nadis which helps to purify, regulate and activate them, thereby inducing physical and mental stability.
- Mudra: hand gestures that direct internal energy to increase concentration and awareness and thus enhance the practitioner’s ability to stabilize the body and mind in meditation.
- Mantra: powerful, sacred sound patterns that liberate, refine and purify the mind and emotions.
- Yoga Nidra: systematic guided yogic relaxation which is a heart-based practice for deep healing and rejuvenation.
- Meditation: a systematic approach to release stress and increase the awareness
- Shatkarmas: a set of purification and cleansing practices used to address imbalances in the body and remove toxins.
- Anatomy and Physiology: the structure and function of the main physical body systems, and the energy systems of the subtle body. One full weekend of the course is dedicated to learning the anatomy of knees, hips, shoulder, girdle and alignment for safety in yoga classes.
- Balancing: the application of yoga to body, energy, mind and emotions
- Posture: postural and adjustment techniques
- Teaching: Teaching methodology, useful tips and experience
- Diet: Introduction to Ayurveda – the sister healing science to yoga
- Philosophy: An introduction to Samkhya philosophy and ancient wisdom which includes: ayurveda, the eightfold path, the chakras, nadis, the koshas etc.

“Doing the yoga teacher training course with Shakti at Earthwise Yoga has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far. I learned so much about every aspect of yoga from the physical components, asana and pranayama, to the lifestyle components, Ayurveda and yogic diet, and even the more subtle components, learning about meditation, the energetic body etc.
Not only did I learn so much about yoga and how best to share yoga with others, I learned a lot about myself, who I really was and what I really wanted to do with my life. The atmosphere at Earthwise a very warm and supportive environment to learn in. The location of the studio is indescribably beautiful too.
Every teacher training weekend was educational and informative but also very sociable and relaxing. It was lovely to have these weekends away from stress of everyday life. I was blessed enough to meet many open minded, warm hearted people, enjoy delicious vegetarian food and learn from other yoga students and teachers in the community. I made friendships which I feel will last for many years and I now feel I have a lovely support network of other yoga teachers.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in yoga and wants to learn more and deepen their own experience or anyone who wants to learn to share yoga with others. Yoga is a wonderful gift to share and I am deeply grateful that Shakti and everyone at Earthwise have helped me develop the skills to share this beautiful, life-changing practice with others.” ~ Becky Jenkins
“It was the last day of the yoga course, and a lot of tears were had here. I will say though that it was a brilliant experience, spending 10 weekends here for the last year, and meeting so many great people. It’s definitely a one in a million place to go, with such positivity all the time and the atmosphere is always so welcoming and free, you feel like a different person every time you leave and that is one of the reasons why it was so hard to finish!! Would love to thank @earthwiseyoga once again for this amazing experience” ~ Julie Vaughan
