One thing you will find as you embrace a yoga regular practice is that other changes soon start to appear in your life. You begin to become more conscious of everything that goes into both body and mind, including the thoughts you think, the emotions you take on – and the fuel you put into your body. It’s no wonder so many yogis embrace healthy, organic eating; we want to make sure that only the best goes into keeping this amazing vessel running! One yogi who has heartily embraced this change is Tiia, a Santosha Level 1 graduate who runs a raw food blog called Raw Food Getting Started. We are so lucky to have her share some of her favourite smoothie recipes for brain fog, beating sugar cravings and increased immunity with us on the blog… hope you enjoy 🙂READ MORE
Just like everyone comes to yoga through their own individual path, all our students approach teaching in their own unique way. Some continue practicing and learning before they make the leap to teaching, many start with family and friends and others find that they can’t wait to jump in to taking classes. Diaz was one such graduate who was born ready to begin his yoga teaching career! We chatted to him about his time on the Santosha Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training, and what inspired and empowered him to dive straight in to sharing his passion with others….

It takes a certain kind of bravery to set sail for a place where you don’t know a single soul. We love that our students are bold enough to make this exciting step! Luckily 99% of our students are in this same situation – so it doesn’t take long for strong friendships and bonds to grow on our yoga teacher trainings. We so often hear our students refer to their Santosha group as a ‘family’ – and it’s true, sharing these experiences together allows a deep connection to quickly grow. It’s a very special part of our immersive trainings.READ MORE

One of our 2014 200 hour yoga Teacher Training grads Mel wrote to us recently from Cambodia, where she is working as a yoga teaching volunteer, offering daily classes in a women’s centre.

I don’t think even Mel had any idea she would end up in Cambodia when she began this journey….
