Art of Viniyoga Yoga Training Course – Spring 2020

The Art of Viniyoga


The Sadhana Mala Art of Viniyoga course will give you a thorough grounding in the principles that underpin Viniyoga in a practical and enjoyable way. This is an equivalent to the BWY Foundation Course, although experience shows that it not only serves as a Foundation Course for students who have not done one before, but is also of interest to experienced students and teachers trained in other approaches, because of its strong approach-specific content

Why do this Course?

  • This course is ideal for keen students who want to understand the principles of Yoga and develop their own practice.
  • It is also a primary requirement for continuing on to the Yoga Teacher Training course, even though the Foundation Course itself is not specifically directed at teaching.
  • This course is also perfect for more experienced students from a different background wishing to understand Viniyoga in some depth and for qualified teachers from other trainings who are interested in doing the Art of Individual Teaching.

“I had a blissful 1 hour reflexology treatment with Kathryn this evening & was left feeling totally stress free. It’s incredible how relaxed the entire body becomes with reflexology with only the feet being touched, even more so than a full body massage. Highly recommend.”
