People who do not wish to teach are very welcome to attend the Course to intensively deepen their practice.

Pre-requisite: regular yoga practice (any style of yoga) for a minimum of 12 months.

Following the guidelines of the international Yoga Alliance, you will study Asana, Pranayama & Meditation,Yoga Philosophy, Ethics & Lifestyle, Anatomy and Teaching Methodology.

This Course is based on the unique Knoff Yoga Principles of:

• Sequencing

• Teaching

• Adjusting

• Observation

• Demonstration

• Practice

Knoff Yoga combines anatomical alignment and energetic applications to create a practice that is intelligent, progressive and enlightening. Anatomically aligned and structurally balanced postures are essential for progress according to our unique physical structure, honouring the individuality of every person and to avoid injury. The solid grounding you gain in anatomical alignment is the basis for progression as a practitioner and a teacher and leads to the easy assimilation of yoga therapy applications.

Knoff Yoga teaches you the tools of Bandha, Drishti, Ujjayi, Pranayama and Vinyasa. These 4 techniques create heat, focus the mind, shifts the autonomic nervous system into balance, and link the postures synchronising movement with breath. The asanas are important, but without these 4 techniques they do not have the same capacity to alchemically transform posture into YOGA.

Knoff Yoga is based on its unique 24 Principles of Practice, which once understood, provide a lifetime of functional knowledge. There is no need to stumble in the dark, when with the proper training, you can turn on the light.

Knoff Yoga provides 5 levels of asana training: Discovery, Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced and Master and 4 levels of specialty training: Chair Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga Therapy A and Yoga Therapy B.

Imagine standing in front of a yoga class knowing you have the knowledge and skills to change lives – knowing you understand the techniques, how to share them, and importantly you have a plan for each and every one of your students.

Knoff Yoga Teacher Training is registered with Yoga Alliance for 200 hours, 300 hours and 500 hours. You will learn: Meditation, Pranayama, Asana, Relaxation and Philosophy and how to teach.
