Jay Garman

I couldn’t be happier that I chose to do my training with Vincent, Dyana, Neal and Karla at Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training.

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.


Mia Pistorius

This is an invaluable course that will expand your love and understanding of yoga beyond what you ever thought was possible! You will learn from such diverse teachers who all have a wealth of experience and knowledge, who truly care for and nurture your individual growth.


Yumi Drozdowski

What a transformational Yoga teacher training! These four amazing teachers create incredible alchemy in teaching Yoga. They create such a safe learning environment and there is wonderful support throughout.

I highly highly recommend the courses at Contemporary Yoga. I really enjoyed every moment.


Olivia Rysenbry

The 200 hour teacher training was an amazing immersive experience. The breadth of material was exceptional and I walked away with a new-found appreciation for all aspects of Yoga as a way of life as well as a wonderful practice.

You will take away from this course so much to help you on your journey - just brilliant.


Anne de Brouwer

Thank you! I am inspired, amazed, changed, still learning, moved … this course has totally changed my view and perception of Yoga in a profound way.


Sandra Palmer

The 300 hour yoga teacher training has surpassed all my expectations. The amazing blend of teachers results in a myriad of deep learning.  Each teacher is an expert in their own area and shares their unique wealth of knowledge in a way which is easy to take on board.

This has truly been a transformative experience.

Vincent Bolletta

Vincent encourages one to be curious about their yoga practice and offers a range of tools to support that enquiry including pranayama, asana, postural re-patterning and hands on enhancement.

Tension and agitation are the enemies of space; they restrict and inhibit. To be free and truly sense space, it simply becomes a matter of introducing ease. Ease is a barometer that guides our movements, our breath and our mind.

Dedicated to Excellence in the Investigation of Body-Mind Approaches to Yoga

The main focus of the Yoga tradition is the personal journey of self exploration, discovery and healing. From a common trunk rooted in the desire for freedom, it branched in many directions, flowering into a multitude of insights and revelations about life.

This training embodies this philosophy, supporting deep personal investigation with current learnings and technologies. Throughout history the Yoga tradition has honoured the past and transcended its limitations at the same time.

Our specialist teachers follow the latest investigations in the fields of movement, body-mind centering and Yoga therapeutics. They include the natural sciences, alongside in-depth studies of Patanjali’s Sutras, Buddhist teachings and the Bhagavad Gita.

Yoga offers personal experience and personal accountability. Our teachers support students in their own explorations and teaching styles, with humour, wisdom and passion, with training, mentoring, meditation and private tuition.

Special Events

We regularly hold retreats, workshops and special events. One of our favourite venues is Mana Retreat Centre in the Coromandel. Here’s our Art Of Resting friends from our 2015 Retreat, with Karla Brodie and Neal Ghoshal →
