Tribe Yoga style of yoga is not led by one specific school of training, our teachers have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from their individual yoga journeys collectively offering an authentic foundation in hatha yoga interlaced with other styles to inspire your onward journey of development. The emphasis on the meditation element is an opportunity to take your inquiry deeper both on and off the mat.

Philosophy: 8 limbs of yoga

At Tribe, the ancient teachings of the East are taught in a modern way and "down to earth" way suitable for the western mind to grasp. Although the main body of teachings for their philosophical talks and studies is the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, they maintain an unbiased approach and draw on the spiritual teachings of a variety of traditions and religions.

The philosophy sessions support and illuminate your yogic understanding whereby you advance along your spiritual path and naturally gravitate to a more yogic lifestyle.

Yoga history and paths of yoga

Learning about where yoga came from and how yoga evolved throughout the ages puts your practice in context. The family tree of yoga has many branches from which different paths of yoga have sprung. You will familiarize yourself with the "giants" of the yoga tradition and connect to the teachers and teachings that have been instrumental in shaping and forming the spiritual paths that you now all tread on.

Tribe has no bias to any particular spiritual teachings and teaches in a non-dogmatic way, which embraces many spiritual traditions and paths.

Yoga living, lifestyle, and diet

You eat for energy and when you recognize that yoga is a practice that generates and directs energy in specific ways, your food choices become very important. The food you eat has a powerful and profound effect on all levels of your being. It’s not unusual for yoga students to plateau in their practice and often diet is a major factor stalling one’s spiritual evolution.

Tribe Yoga introduces fasting and detoxing practices that are not compulsory. Students are always encouraged to listen to the theory and then decide for themselves if they want to participate.


On this course of mixed style,s in addition to Modified Ashtanga Primary Series used in sequences and studies, there will be Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, and other practices.

To honor varying abilities and limitations, there are modifications to the traditional primary series asanas and introductions to a greater variety of asanas and sequencing taught under an umbrella of spiritual content and guidance. Tribe teachers nurture your confidence and creativity so you can offer the style of asana that you love to practice.

Tribe Yoga feels that awareness is the fertile ground for transformation and the real essence of asana practice lies in connecting to the subtleties of the body, breath, and mind. Instructions focus on leading the students into a deeper awareness, to feel and recognize what’s going on inside their bodies, not just physically.

Tribe Yoga approach transmitted to trainees is one of clear and effective instruction to increase awareness and sensitivity empowering students to deepen into safe and beneficial practice. The method they use in asana practices and studies is inspired by the "Dynamic yoga method" as devised by Godfrey Devereux.

The dynamic yoga method provides us with the simplistic approach, practice, and understanding of some basic fundamentals which make asana practice safe and effective. Those fundamentals are a soft and passive core, a stable foundation, expression of the bandhas, and freedom of the breath.


Pranayama can open the doors to the possibility of transcending physical and emotional blocks thereby accessing and connecting to the more subtle aspects of our being. The pranayama program includes a broad range of techniques that present a gradual yet deep exploration of the power of the breath.

Meditation practice

The meditation program is a combination of guided and silent practices that are an invitation to cultivate awareness and stillness that is the hallmark of all spiritual practices. Tribe teaches a diverse selection of techniques including breath awareness, mantra, music, and dynamic meditation.

Teaching skills

During the training, you get plenty of time to develop teaching skills through teaching practice and coaching from the Tribe teachers. Each week there are teaching assessments so you can appreciate and monitor your progress and growth. By the end of the training, you are able to create your own sequence and structure for a 75-minute yoga class which you can immediately teach to others when you venture back out into the world.

Restorative yoga

Restorative classes are a great opportunity to recalibrate the body and establish a deep sense of release and relaxation on all levels of one’s being. On the Tribe yoga teacher training, the restorative classes create an opportunity to explore how to use props to support students deeper into stability, stillness, and comfort so the body and mind are both replenished and refreshed.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra can be a very powerful and profound practice to support practitioners on the path of personal growth and spiritual development. It’s a practice that, if done on a regular basis, can help you to break free of the conditioned mind and allow you to connect to the most subtle realms of your being in an awake state.

Beginner Kriyas

Kriyas are the cleansing practices of Hatha yoga that support health and hygiene but more importantly cleanse the practitioner on a physical, energetic, emotional, and mental level. The beginner’s kriya practices are optional. Students can decide for themselves after the theory if they wish to practice kriyas on a daily basis.


The practice of Bhakti yoga, devotional chanting, and singing, is a beloved practice of Tribe yoga teacher training course. Tribe teachers have a passion for Bhakti yoga and are able to transmit their enthusiasm and own devotion and love for the divine to the trainees in such a profound way. Hearts open and those present often find themselves in amazing sublime states of elevated consciousness.


Tribe Yoga focus is to guide students towards deepening into self-practice. They facilitate a space whereby each person is invited to nurture their own unique individuality and explore what works for them. During the training, students are supported to deepen their understanding and sensitivity, learning how to navigate safely and effectively through a self-practice, being able to skillfully respond to what they are feeling in each and every moment.

Whether you are new to self-practice or have been practicing solo for a long time, the training will help you to develop greater spontaneity and become more explorative in your practice.
