CPD Weekends


The first module dives into the heart of teaching with stabilizing commitment, turns to the study of self and asks the teacher to step bravely into their heart to ride the tiger to their transformative growth edge. This comprehensive module includes refinement of biomechanics, deep understanding of the key patterns of movement, the art of sequencing, the art of adjustments, integration of mantra, mudra and meditation, stepping into the power of authentic voice, creating meaningful class themes and effective teaching for different levels of students. This  module consists of 90 hours intensive study and requires endurance, commitment and true desire for transformation.


The second module opens the spirit of play and creativity for teaching once the fundamental skills are stabilized and anchored. Creativity is the juice of life and yoga frees up the restrictions that block the creative flow. As the teacher gains confidence in their own unique gifts, they learn to give voice to the sacred play of life unfolding within the practices of yoga. This comprehensive module reviews all the fundamental teaching methodology and opens up the creative gateways of teaching through storytelling, sequencing and theming. Find the Yin in our Yang, there will be an emphasis on the balance of ones own life and the integration in the overall structure of personal practice and teachings,


The third module magnetizes all the practices together to independently spring the teacher into the teaching of yoga. The intensity of this module requires the teacher to rise to the occasion, meet challenges, face fears, and ultimately learn how to surrender and offer in the heart  of Love and Service. This module is a powerful catalyst for the alchemy of teaching and the ultimate refinement of the teacher as a clear vessel of embodied transmission. This comprehensive module includes meticulous refinement of all Fearless Heart Teaching methodology, community leadership skills, energetics of teaching yoga, invocation of Spirit, shadow work for yoga teachers, spiritual practices for sustaining the teacher, owning authentic voice, and staying true to the force of creative freedom. Kathy truly enjoys guiding each teacher to a profound new edge where leverage is gained and radical transformation occurs. This module consists of 90 hours of intensive study and requires endurance, commitment and the willingness to grow in alignment with Dharma and the highest vibration of  ones own spirit.

"Kathy is a blessed soul you rarely get to meet in life. It has been an honour to meet her and have her as our guide. this yoga teacher training has led me to grow as a person, find grounding, and build confidence in all aspects of my life outside of yoga. Within yoga its challenged me and strengthened my practise beyond my expectations. I don't think doing this course anywhere else would have provided me with so much. Kathy has a gift and getting an opportunity to spend time to train with her should not be missed. She is truly an expert and her years of experience has created an amazing course that is incredibly professional. I not only got a chance to do something I've wanted to do for years, but also got a yoga family out of it. I cannot thank you enough!".
