Testimonials for the Teacher Training and Teachers
Just a few of our testimonials!
There is a richness and depth to this content with its real life (on and off the mat) applicability. I have been moved by the sincerity and support of the teachers.
I am so excited to share these teachings in a way that is accessible and empowering for students and wider community members.
I’ve learnt so much about Yoga and myself, met so many wonderful people, and have made lifelong friends.
I can truly say that this training would benefit any yoga teacher - in fact, any person with a yoga practice. I not only gained a more compassionate perspective to yoga, but also toward myself.
Four generous and vastly different teachers combine to offer something more unique and valuable than expected. It is beyond yoga as I knew it — it was an investment in the rest of my life.
The Contemporary Yoga faculty don’t tell you how it is. They share their wealth of knowledge, and introduce you to the teacher within and what you already are.
All lessons are applicable off the mat, creating what I imagine are sincere teachers of depth and with soul. Words can hardly express how grateful I am for what I learned with their guidance in just three weeks, the most important of which was connecting with myself and others in a truly authentic, supportive, caring and sustainable way that I can’t wait to pay forward as a teacher. Thank you!!
The amount of knowledge and understanding, experience and love that has gone into the teacher training is truly epic and has enabled such a deep and rich learning experience.
Each teacher’s passion for sharing and facilitating is evident in the generosity of spirit and unique sharing of knowledge
The sequence of this course is undeniably strong and grounded. All the teachers bring compassion, ease, knowledge, flavour, enquiry and wholeness to everything they show, do, present and give.
Making this course a full embodied experience, exploration and foundation to enliven new thoughts and ideas to take away for our own self practice and to share with others.
Thank you! I feel so much gratitude to have participated in this teacher training. The teachers are so generous and open in their teaching and transmission of knowledge. A life-changing experience 🙂
The beauty of this collaboration is that one receives a wealth of experience, expertise, passion and dedication to all that is the art and science of which means, you gain a rich experience far beyond your initial investment.
I highly recommend this Teacher Training and am already planning my next installment.
Contemporary Yoga has changed the way I move - through life!
Karla, Neal and Haidee’s passion is contagious and this course is a real journey to embrace.
I couldn’t be happier that I chose to do my training with Contemporary Yoga.
Instead of pigeonholing myself into a particular style or approach, I’ve had an immensely rich exploration of yoga, from the ancient to the modern, offered by this range of true masters. My foundation will never be the same. I’m ready to share.
There are times when a teacher comes into your life at just the right time. To have four unique teachers drop in simultaneously, all offering something special, is a rare treat.
I have enjoyed it so much and feel I have taken so much away into my everyday life as well as my Yoga. The teachers are all unique and true to their core. I look forward to earning so much more from them.
This training has awakened in me the huge possibility that await. Moving away from the scripted style of teaching a new found freedom has been found an an excitement and what awaits. Thank you.
My teacher training has empowered me. It has given me a wealth of knowledge while allowing me the freedom to explore. The beauty of the course was the balance between structure and self development.
The respect my teachers give to yoga, and the generosity to share their knowledge in a gentle safe environment, was humbling.
An outstanding teacher training that integrated so much valuable information from truly knowledgeable, gentle, kind human beings.
The knowledge shared I will value for life, and continue to thread through my own teaching.
I highly highly recommend the courses at Contemporary Yoga. I really enjoyed every moment.
Exploring movement and asana in a refreshing way that deepened my self-discovery and personal physical understanding.
To all the teachers …
I think of each of you, as being among the most talented chefs in the world. Your teachings have been a series of sophisticated degustation dining experiences of beautiful refinement and elegance all delivered with passion and remarkable skill. Each superbly crafted dish captured my full attention to consider, examine, and appreciate all the detail before consuming.
Since commencing my practice with you Karla, it has shown me that yoga doesn’t have to be about perfection, but more it is about gently connecting to our wondrous bodies, minds, hearts, and souls. I love the whole yoga practise now - all of it, not just the end Savasana. I enter each class not fearing it, but knowing it is going to make me feel soooo good. I leave the class feeling centred and my whole being feels that it has been loved, not judged, and for that I am forever grateful!
His sense of kindness & musical abilities opened my mind to what it is to embrace wholeness and to be a teacher that truly embodies the idea of loving presence.
Neal is able to make palpable the endless connections between the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga practice. His use of music and dance creates a learning experience that is holistic joyful and at times deeply sensuous.
At the same time he has an eye for detail in asana work but always emphasizes self-care, acceptance of individual differences and respect for students as core principles.
I strongly recommend this training. It’s a life changing experience. The way I see things, smell, feel and my energy have completely changed throughout the course consistently.
Beyond expectation. Absolutely worth the investment after many long years I’ve finally met myself! Simply, divine! Organic! Full of love!
The learnings I have gained from this course of really helped me find not only my yoga knowledge, but myself. I thank the team for the amazing work they put into this course, as I have come out of it with a new perspective.
As I leave the training I can confidently say that I have come closer to my true nature, and I’m able to come closer to this more and more every day.
This training is carefully considered, expansive and practical. It goes deeper and beyond asanas as the poster shapes of yoga and provides an incredible grounding and insight into yoga as a morphing, ongoing inquiry into life itself.
This course opened my eyes to the world of Yoga, deepening my understanding and personal practice.
It has set me up so well to teach, and to continue my journey. Everything I needed and more!
Karla and Neal provide a rich colour palette for the aspiring artist.
Wonderful experience, wonderful people, beautiful outcomes!
I am a physiotherapist and as well as gaining vital skills to teach yoga I have also gained insight and knowledge that I will apply in my physiotherapy career.
This course will really make you think about Yoga. It’s full of creative, fun and innovative thinking that will enhance your own practice and enliven your own classes.
This is Yoga for life!
A truly transformational journey supported by wonderful teachers, and I look forward to sharing this knowledge and practice. Thank you to you all.
This training surpassed all expectations - challenging, inspiring, and deeply informative. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world of yoga!
The faculty are all exceptional and skilled practitioners, whose authenticity and love of yoga shone throughout the duration of the course.
… a mindful journey to come back home, to your true “being”, of who you are, where you are, and how you are going forward. It’s the shortest and most easeful pathway to discover your true “being”.
The wealth and depth of knowledge and experience of four exceptional teachers woven passionately with a focus on personal inquiry and active exploration, provides a foundation for students which inspires, empowers and transforms. Immense gratitude for a profound learning journey.
I am extremely grateful to all the amazing teachers who have appeared at the right time on my journey, and who have enriched and inspired my life.
Contemporary yoga training has been the ‘icing on the cake’ and if you are ‘stuck’ or need a nudge in the right direction don’t hesitate and sign up now! You will never regret it!
I plan to visit that place more often! Thank you!
You will take away from this course so much to help you on your journey - just brilliant.
Beautiful people sharing the beauty of life. 🙂
I feel I have developed my own opinions and rational for how I will approach teaching, and that I am prepared well for the challenge that awaits me. It is interesting to see how differently individual members of the group used the information and teachings for our final assessments.
I think it speaks so highly of the quality of training that you can produce 15 skilled and confident teachers who have very different styles instead of just pumping out carbon copies of yourselves. Very well done all of you. Thank you.

Thank you I am inspired, amazed, changed, still learning, moved. I am inspired to keep on learning and exploring and this course has totally changed my view and perception of yoga in a profound way.
I found it absolutely fascinating to learn how and why the body works as it does. Everything was relevant - each and every aspect we covered right from the cells to how they relate to the practice of yoga. This knowledge will definitely make me a better teacher, and there are many ways that I will be able to integrate it into my teaching.
The teachers were outstanding: each teach from their own unique perspective inside a carefully crafted, well-designed programme of studies. This ensured strong synergies across all aspects of the course and a great combination of practice and theory.
I learned so much more than just asana, pranayama etc. This course is indeed contemporary yoga - with a focus on movement patterns and modern theory - I thoroughly recommend it.
The focus on developmental movement patterns, yoga therapy and restorative yoga combined with the yoga philosophy and anatomy/physiology woven throughout, means that this training is different from any other yoga training out there.
The training provides plentiful opportunities to develop self-awareness as yoga teachers and yoga therapists which will result in teachers/therapist with self- understanding and a grounding in the knowledge as well as a deeper understanding of others.
This has truly been a transformative experience.
Contemporary Yoga has given me more than what I’d expect from a teacher training course. All the teachers are truly experts in what they do and their passion is infectious. 🙂
