Our Philosophy

 

Young Well-being and Yoga Teacher Education programs are designed to produce confident yoga teachers trained in the traditions and history of classical yoga and grown though learner centred, appropriate functional movement; informed by contemporary research and exercise science. We strive to open the doors to yoga in any setting and to any body. We believe in a community of practice, formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning, in a shared domain of human endeavour.  We function in an informed, qualified and professional quality assured environment. We strive to instill the qualities of self-discipline, respect, and awareness to each one of our students by emphasizing the importance of following the yamas (social code) and niyamas (personal code), the practices of pranayama, meditation, and asana, and the study of philosophy.

A significant portion of the student’s fees go directly towards fulfilling Emily and Rob’s vision: the establishment of a youth well-being charitable project.  We cant wait to share this with our community in the future

Love and Light, Emily and Rob.
