Weekly Yoga Classes and Workshops

We highly recommend that before attending our Yoga teacher training programs you come along to our classes - so that you get a true feel as to our approach and style in teaching.

Do check the Contemporary Yoga Centre for classes and courses with our programme director and core faculty member Karla Brodie, along with many other teachers who have been through our trainings.

Having said that, each teacher is also somewhat unique in how they present their classes and information. Each teacher has their own website - please do make contact to arrange times to attend classes.
