Yasodhara Yoga Teachers in Canterbury

Jacqueline Summer teacher-jacquelineI first encountered Swami Radha’s teachings of yoga in 2003 at a Hidden Language Hatha Yoga class. I went on to train as a Yasodhara Yoga teacher, taking the Yoga Development Course at Yasodhara Ashram in 2008 and receiving teacher certification in Kundalini, Dream Yoga and Hidden Language Hatha Yoga in 2010.  http://www.yasodhara.org/ I renewed my training in Summer 2014. I have found Yasodhara Yoga to be a grounded and practical way of honouring the spiritual in everyday life. I have also taught Meditation & Mindfulness through Adult Education. I hold a Diploma to teach 14 years plus, a Diploma in Social Work and a BA in Fine Art.

 

Carol Lucis teacher-carolYasodhara yoga has been a prominent part of my life since 1994 when I was introduced to Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga and dream interpretation. I was impressed by the practical, life enriching tools that were offered to me in the classes. Yasodhara Yoga  http://www.yasodhara.org/ has enhanced my life in every way. Swami Radha’s profound wisdom and compassion has formed the inspiration to make the much needed changes that were necessary in order to bring greater peace and joy into my life. I wish to offer to others the opportunity to experience that same wisdom. I completed my initial training as a Yasodhara Yoga teacher in 1997. Then in 1998 I returned to complete the Hidden Language, Dreams and Kundalini teacher training. Since then I have been returning regularly to the ashram to update my training and connect with other yoginis from all over the world. I returned to the ashram for extended stays of over 6 months in 2008 and again in 2015/16 in order to deepen my yoga practice and commitment.
