Intelligent sequencing and Yoga Therapy Teacher Training

25 September to 29 September
with Neha Duseja and  Jeelna Ruparelia 

This training is all about equipping you to take your teaching to a new level! Looking at how to make the practice safe and accessible as well as creative and educational, we will truly examine how to use the practice as a healing modality and all its therapeutic value to body, mind and spirit.

From examining the philosophy of the yoga practice, to safe and effective sequencing, to posture modifications for therapy and injury management, to exploring the multi-modal approach of yoga, including breathwork and meditation, we will work on it all! You will be exposed to a wealth of knowledge and lots of different approaches to structuring classes and giving your students the best experience.

Neha Duseja

Neha is a ERYT 600 Certified, international yoga teacher, who runs yoga trainings, CPDs, workshops and retreats around the world.

Neha’s journey began close to10 years ago, as a means of beginning again. Leaving a successful advertising career behind, looking to live a more authentic, more purposeful life, she found her answer in a pool of sweat, on a yoga mat one summer in Dubai.

Her love affair with yoga began in the hot room, after which she found her wings in a vinyasa class and discovered a channel for her creativity in arm balances, inversions and beautiful transitions within the flows. Yoga was changing her and she didn’t even know! Accepting versus refusing. Softening, versus hardening. Neha realized that yoga is a means for mental metamorphosis. Transforming limitations into opportunities, and fear into empowerment, simply existing to really living, every breath, every moment, that is the gift of the practice!

For the past 4 years, with a need to dive deeper into technique and expand on her love for the practice, Neha has been a regular student in the mysore room. Studying with Nea Ferrier, in Dubai, falling madly in love with the lineage, that has helped her deepen her connection to yoga, to her self, her body and her reasons for teaching.

Neha teaches, full led primary. And her Vinyasa classes are creative,  challenging and focus on expanding student knowledge of themselves through postures, breathwork and mindful movement. The goal is always, to be good at yoga and therefore, be GREAT at life!

With a love of teaching, Neha will guide your practice to new depths and help you connect your journey on the mat with meaning off the mat. And she is so excited to grow with you!
