(Applied each and every time you step onto a yoga mat)
Knoff Yoga is a system-based program, which is logical, clear and easy to understand. Knoff Yoga takes an extremely complex subject and intelligently simplifies it. Knoff Yoga is grounded in tradition and incorporates western scientific principles. You learn how to teach from a solid base of knowledge, imparting confidence – all the work has been done, you simply follow the systems and guide your students.
You study under the guidance of a Master Teacher with over 45 years experience.
All classes are dedicated to Teacher Training – not public classes.
Courses are designed so you are certificated and may teach straight away using the comprehensive course content.
Flexible learning with levels, plus options to split courses to fit into your schedule.
Courses are based on modern learning methodology.
Each level prepares you for the next with logical progression.
Principle-based so that you are not rote learning or following a script. The principles free you to teach from your own unique understanding.
Yoga Alliance registered for international recognition.
A cornerstone of Knoff Yoga is the appropriate use of props (straps, blankets, blocks, bricks, bolsters, chairs, inversion swings, etc.). Using props where they are necessary, but gradually working towards freedom from the props and full expression of classical postures in order to develop the full expression of our human potential.
We call the Knoff Yoga intensive approach to training the ‘Baked Cake Method’. If you want to bake a cake and it requires one hour in the oven, you do not remove it every ten minutes, let it cool down, and then put it back in the oven. If you do, you end up with an inedible mess! You need the powerful cumulative effects of deepening your practice and teaching if you want to be a credible teacher with your own experience and insights.
