Why with Sundara Yoga Teacher Training?

After teaching and practising yoga for more than 20 years, I am on a mission to adapt yoga to modern bodies and minds with a deep respect for yoga's roots. I am inviting real people of all sizes and backgrounds to this course. 

I have been teaching in the UK, Spain, Germany, Thailand and India, and I am passionate and keen to pass on everything I have learnt to keep the essence of yoga alive. 

In the past, I taught yoga to people of diverse backgrounds (inter alia, martial art practitioners, cancer survivors, in Spain to former drug and alcoholic addicts, etc. ). 

What will you learn in the course? 

  • How to guide students safely, with well-designed and structured classes (anatomy, physiology, biomechanics) 

  • You don’t simply lean where the muscles and bones are,  but instead, you appreciate what you can do with them in posture, movement and breathing. How to go deeper without overstretching and overbending. 

  • How to become an authentic yoga teacher (find your own style, find your voice, the ethical foundation of being a teacher, and conduct an “ethical path of teaching and taking yoga forward.”  

  • How to apply the study of yogic texts, such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita, in your life and your classes. Learn about those textual scriptures in their historical context and evaluate how and when they are still useful for your life.

  • How to live and take yoga off the mat

  • Fundamentals of Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine

  • How to adapt postures and practice for exceptional circumstances (pregnancy, menstruation, back problems etc.). Use of Props

Ashka, Yoga Teacher (2019)

"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 a passion for making yoga accessible and for making it a way of living."

The training was hard but very rewarding. Learning so much but over a period of time was perfect for me. Lots of soul searching.
There was always guidance & help in between each weekend. Constant support & kindness from Claudia."

Yoga Training Course with senior yoga teacher - YTT 200

Claudia: "I've been participating as a teacher in various teacher training since 2012 and have supported to train many students. I started in Barcelona teaching Pranayama and Hatha Yoga on a teacher training programme. When coming to Brighton, I taught philosophy in 2 teacher training before deciding in 2018 to run my own course. Wherever I can, I will try to bring in other teachers. I don't want people to be a copy of myself, but learn to be authentic, empowered beings.

You'll learn how to teach a range of different classes and adjust to many other modern bodies. We don't emphasise performance, but rather a positive transforming and overall teaching yoga in a loving way to your body using somatic movements, classical and adapted asanas and learning how to adapt to each person. Vinyasa Krama (step by step progression takes time and patience.  

Sundara Yoga Teacher Training gives you the tools to teach gentle Hatha as much as some more dynamic vinyasa flow classes, restorative and Yoga Nidra.

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, we believe any yoga teacher must be aware of this and has to stay real and not fake anything.

"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."
