Ashka, Yoga Teacher
"I had a pleasure to be part of Sundara yoga teacher training in 2019. It was an incredible experience. I have learnt a lot not only about yoga, I changed my perspective on yoga and my practice has changed because of what I learnt. Claudia is an incredibly vibrant and supportive teacher with passion for making yoga accessible and for making it a way of living."
Elisabeth, Yoga Teacher
"Claudia is is a truly gifted Yoga teacher! I first started studying with her by attending her classes in Spain over 10 years ago (2006) and then went on to enjoy a deeper practice with her by attending her retreats. She has a gift for teaching the subtleness of movement while staying true to the essence of yogic principals. As a fellow yoga teacher, I appreciate always being able to learn something new from her sessions as well as walking away feeling calm, strong, and connected to a beautiful community.""I
Amanda, Yoga Teacher
"I really enjoyed yoga with Claudia before I even thought about becoming a teacher.
The training was hard but very rewarding. Learning so much but over a period of time was perfect for me. Lots of sole searching.
There was always guidance & help in between each weekend. Constant support & kindness from Claudia."
Yoga Teacher Training Brighton and Hove 2020
Enrollment is open. There are only limited spaces on this course. We take a max. of only 8 people.
So, if you are interested in a yoga teacher training Brighton and Hove (part of the training is to go for 6 nights to Italy), let me know and introduce yourself. I am happy to meet and discuss this course further with you.
200+ hours. Yoga Teacher Training Brighton is for all those that wish to learn more and dive deeper into a yoga practice and self - inquiry and self-reflection that is necessary for personal growth. I support you with ethical marketing and sales savvy and mentoring all the way through and beyond. I like to think of a yoga teacher who transforms rather than performs, and be present! I have worked in marketing and have done courses in social media and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Nowadays it's important for the teacher to be commercially viable with certain ethical business savvy. However, yoga should foremost be seen as a way of life rather than a career.
Register and come to a taster on 9 February at 4 pm at the lovely Upstairs at Six Yoga Studio. Sign up for the next taster session in February. There are only limited spaces.

Claudia Steinhauser (senior yoga teacher registered with YAP)
"I've been participating as a teacher in various teacher trainings since 2012 and have supported to train many students. I started in Barcelona teaching Pranayama and Hatha Yoga and when coming to live in Brighton I taught the philosophy part in 2 teacher traiinings.
You'll learn how to teach a range of different classes and overall how to adjust to many different modern bodies. I don't give so much emphasis on performance, but rather positive transforming and overall teaching yoga in a loving way to your body using somatic movements, and learning how to adapt to each person. Vinyasa Krama (step by step progression takes time and patience. In the past. I started yoga as a young person and have been teaching yoga since 2004 with thousands of teaching hours and various teacher training courses myself.

Yoga is a discipline which involves searching for the self and could involve potentially altering or intervening with another individual (or groups) search for the self (or identity). Therefore, I believe any yoga teacher is required to be aware of this and has to stay real and not fake anything. As a teacher you are only required to give the tools and it's up to the liberty of a given person who comes to that class to take those tools or leave it, but in no way should there be an attachment to the teacher or the teachings and at all times this freedom for anybody in this relationship has to be respected.
With so many Yoga Teacher Trainings to choose from, why would you choose this one? Our Sundara Teacher Training gives you the foundation and tools to find your authentic voice and style as a teacher. It teaches self-inquiry, transforms and is for real people of all sizes and backgrounds. It is accredited by the Yoga Alliance Professionals UK who have high standards and teachers have to have a minimum of 8 years teaching experience before they can be training providers.
Do you have a body? Then you have a “yoga body.” Do you enjoy using it? Do you have strong ethical core values of not harming others? Then you are already a yogi! It's not about the venue, it's about the human being behind it. It's not about holding a certain posture, but how you hold yourself in life (do you only talk the talk or also walk the walk - too many people have words such as "compassion" "kindness" "integrity" in their business vocabulary, but when it comes to show compassion, kindness or integrity fail big time. They are not open to other perspectives and their motto is "my way or the highway" which leads often in pursuing a career that ultimately fails in its ethical aspects).
Are you ready to dive deeper into philosophy and history of yoga to modern yoga and learn about modern bodies? Do you want to learn about your nervous sysem and how posture affects you? Do you want to learn about some effective distribution of blood and energy? How to create stabilisation around joints?
Have you got a passion for yoga and would like to teach others about it? Then this course is the right for you. For more information please send me a message and I am happy to call, meet or email you back.
Learn a combination of styles, such as Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative with Iyengar alignment principles to flow mindfully
*Find your own authentic way of teaching and voice
Our small groups allow for a lot of personal attention and support (mentoring) to be an outstanding teacher
Teaching is some kind of Karma, self-service to give love for this beautiful art to others. You will learn different styles of yoga (more dynamic vinyasa styles to restorative Nidra), philosophy and anatomy and physiology of yoga. You learn different ways of stretching and strengthening that allow for effective distribution of energy throughout your body. We will take care of you and provide you with help once you finish the teacher training. We help you to design a website, how to get your SEO and digital marketing going and overall how to be an ethical yoga teacher staying true to the values and qualities you represent to the whole. If you want to teach part-time or full-time, we give you advice on how to set yourself up and be a good teacher. You learn what your muscles can do for you (and not simply the names of all muscles which does not serve you at all) and how to use them in different postures. The art of inquiry is an important part of this training and we encourage you to feel and become more aware. Overall, you will learn how to use yoga in everyday life, on and off the mat and hopefully, this will lead to growth and finding your true purpose. This is a teacher training for real people and we invite all ages, sizes, and nationalities. We believe in true empowerment and embodiment.
Your energy levels will increase by encouraging to breathe less (very important especially in the beginning of a yoga practice many people over-breath and even thus feel fit and active, in the long term their energy level will decrease and they have the urge for more high protein food), you will promote circulation without needing to make your heart beat faster and will get fit and you learn how to improve the intelligence of your body cells without having to over-think.
"Practicing with Claudia inspired me to explore yoga teacher training, and when I began a 200-hour course in Hove, I was delighted to see she was teaching a module! I found the sessions to be really well planned and thought out. We covered what we needed for the course content, but more than that, we were invited to read more, to think outside of the qualification and apply what we were learning to our own lives and practice. -And that what makes Claudia such a great teacher, she shares her vast knowledge & experience, but also encourages us to continue to learn. The gift of further inquiry is something that has stayed with me years after the course. A great teacher is one who is ever the student. Thank you for all of your help and support."

How to become a yoga instructor and what to look out for
When you are looking for Yoga Teacher Training Course in Brighton, UK there are so many courses to choose from. A yoga teacher course can be life-changing and really immerse you into the philosophy, art and science of yoga.
I aim for people to be awake in "conscious" activism", that is, be the change they want in others. We have an intrinsic privilege in many things we are not even conscious about. Fake people stay in "performa" (they seem nice and reasonable from the outside but all they care for is their own gratification often called "career" or/and image), real people are not be afraid of being real and are able to see things from different perspectives, able to forgive and don't claim to be always perfect. They stay humble. There are a lot of fake people out there. It takes courage to be real! Can you be one of them? Read my blog
