About us

The Body-Mind-Soul Centre is a registered school with the Yoga Alliance and we are honoured to collaborate with teachers from a wonderful diverse and experienced background.

The ethos of the Body-Mind-Soul Centre is to apply the teachings and practices of the yoga tradition to go on an exploration to investigate the relationship of our body, mind and soul. Ultimately to gain clarity, to understand our nature, to create harmony between us and others and to experience freedom and joy.

In a Taoist / Zen way, we emphasize the value of breath, meditation and intuition rather than ritual worship or rigorous following of old scriptures and perfect alignments. Everybody is different, so what how a pose feels precedes how it is supposed to look.

We see teaching yoga as an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. A student’s personal practice and the understanding that follows subsequently spark the inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally and spontaneously.

We acknowledge and emphasize that every student and teacher has his or her own unique presence, energy, and teaching style. The Body-Mind-Soul Centre provides an ideal environment for learning and as a practice process, where yoga teacher teacher training courses are presented and practiced in depth.
