With over 30 years of teaching experience around the globe, he is a real “teacher’s teacher”.

Offering well-researched and innovative methods backed up by an extensive study of physiotherapy, molecular biology, neuroscience and many styles of yoga, he has become renowned for clarifying why many trends in contemporary yoga styles are producing joint and other health problems for many practitioners. In this training course, you will learn practical solutions to make your yoga practice and teaching safer for all bodies and levels, making you and any future students stronger, more flexible, and more energized.

NowHere Yoga is Morgan Palmer Hubbard, Malwina Ostrowska, and Carlota Amargós experienced yoga teachers based in Barcelona and running retreats and festivals in Spain and internationally. Drawing on many different yogic pieces of training including in-depth training with Simon Borg-Olivier since 2013, they offer a vibrant, modern approach to yoga practice and lifestyle deeply inspired by yoga, martial arts, Burning Man, Vedanta, Buddhism, and nature, and informed by their backgrounds in psychology, design, music, and dance. They will present foundational concepts for practice, teaching methodology, yoga history and philosophy, and skills for communication and promotion.

You will leave this training with a comprehensive understanding of yoga and how to make a yoga practice effective for modern bodies, on physical, physiological, energetic and mental levels; how to lead classes with safety, confidence and authenticity; business and communications skills for yoga teachers; plus a deeper personal practice supercharged by daily practices that will inspire and invigorate you!
