Welcome to HOV Academy, a home and school for all those who are eager to grow their practice of yoga and live it fully in their life, wether they are a student or a yoga teacher.

From handstands, to mindfulness, to alternate nostril breathing, to ethics, to the science of our physiology, to the heart of philosophy, from synovial fluid to chakras, from sweat to rest, from movement to stillness - we believe yoga is incredibly multi-dimensional. At HOV Academy we celebrate all the incredible facets of yoga and view them all as gateways to greater love and freedom.

HOV Academy teaches alignment based vinyasa yoga, we aim to practice with deep compassion, open-mindedness and intelligence. Our programs celebrate and honour traditional lineages of yoga while embracing contemporary perspectives from modern movement modalities.

The four principles that underpin our trainings and course structure.

INTERDISCIPLINARY

Yoga is both an art and a science. From poetic heart felt philosophy to the science of our nervous system and mind, our program seeks to strike an exciting balance between both disciplines.

EDUCATION

Learning doesn’t have to be boring; our programs offer exceptional education by teaching in a way that is engaging, fun, memorable, practical, consistent and progressive.

COMMUNITY

Be a part of a vibrant connected community - its through community that we can feel inspired, supported and be held accountable for our own growth. You will be supported by faculty and fellow peers.

TRANSFORMATION

Transformation, both physically and mentally, is at the core of our programs. We cultivate a safe environment and invite you into new experiences both on your yoga mat and off.

Past student reviews of Duncan's training

"Duncan is a truly amazing teacher. His knowledge of the yoga practice, philosophy and technicalities of alignment, asana and sequencing is phenomenal. He teaches from such a place of compassion, strength, and most importantly, joy. Duncan attracts great people -all my fellow yogis and I were attracted to his course due to his experience, wisdom and heart. So, while it was tough and challenging at times, I always felt supported by Duncan and my fellow teachers. And most importantly, it was damn fun. You'll not regret embarking upon this journey with Duncan."

- CAROLINE SHACKLEY (2019) -

Heart of Vinyasa was everything I wanted in a 300hr training. I went in with a thirst to dive deeper into Yoga philosophy, anatomy and teaching skills. I've come out a much more confident teacher with a revitalised passion for teaching and learning. I was pushed out of my comfort zone in many ways during this course, but felt encouraged and supported by Duncan and the entire faculty.  The students doing this course alongside me turned out to be such an amazing group, and this is testament to Duncan's skills and reputation in the industry. Thanks Duncan for a life-changing training!

- STEF TURNER (2019) -

"It was an honour to be in Duncan’s Heart of Vinyasa Training. Duncan makes you feel seen. He is right there with you in moments of intensity and moments of release, and balances his infectious joy with insightful philosophy. His years of dedication to this practice shine through in this intelligent, considered, and powerful course that has left me feeling so clear and confident in my own teaching. Duncan has a presence that lights up any room, words that drop you into sensation, and compassion that supports you to be kinder and more loving with yourself."
