WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR TRAININGS

Duncan's 200hr yoga teacher training was phenomenal, truly life changing for me - physically, mentally, spiritually. Duncan has a knack for meeting everyone where they are, and encouraging them in a positive and compassionate manner.

BETH T.

Duncan’s 4 week yoga 40hr immersion has been at the centre of my life. Beaming with positivity, knowledge, and advice I feel that through the immersion I have become stronger physically & spiritually. Duncan’s insights have strengthened the spiritual path I am on.

MARIANNE D.

The 40hrs Deepen Your Practice Immersion was just what I needed! I wanted to try more advanced asanas which in regular classes are too often spared or rushed through due to time limitations. In this immersion Duncan took us step by step into challenging asanas like handstand, the funky variations of the crow etc.

KATHARINA S.

Duncan's 40hr immersion is a game changer. Expect strengthening, sweating, dancing, stretching, breathing, inquiring, laughing. Duncan has created a masterpiece, so if you’re even remotely considering doing it, be a part, it’s for you!
