FACILITATED BY DEVAHITI AND HOSTED BY FREE SPIRIT WELLNESS

May – October 2020

Are you ready to move into a new paradigm of online teaching with us? Cheryl and Sophia are offering you an opportunity to train with us online as we skilfully guide you through an internationally recognised 200hr yoga teacher training. 

Starting in May 2020, we will meet virtually 2 weekends a month as we begin this exciting online journey. Now you may be thinking how on earth are you going to get the individual hands on attention that you need? As yoga teachers, we are taught to navigate students through a yoga class using precise and detailed instructions. Our online course will include a good amount of yoga asana that will prepare you to teach from feeling rather than doing. 

The world is changing at a rapid pace – are you ready to evolve with it? If you want to start a new, fulfilling career, upskill your current teaching methods or even just delve deeper into your own yoga practice – this course is for you. 

If you are ready to tap into your divine essence and offer your services to the world, then this is your sign. 

The online course will be divided into 4 modules. We will meet online via Zoom on the dates below. This will include 2 hours on a Friday evening from 6-8pm and a full day on Saturdays from 7:30-4pm and Sundays from 8-4pm.
