Our teachers

Our team is made up of a carefully selected body of expert yoga teachers, who are recognised for their wealth of experience, highest standards and dedication to serving others. We have one resident teacher living with us at a time, who leads the daily yoga and meditation classes. This schedule rotates every 1.5 – 2 months. Throughout the year we also collaborate with a selection of high calibre visiting practitioners, such as shamans, artists, chefs and musicians, to produce carefully curated experiences for our guests.

Each teacher and facilitator, while individually skilled and unique in their approach, is united in their alignment with the Sanctuary’s ethos and values.

If you are interested in practising a particular style of yoga, please contact us before booking to find out what is available during your preferred dates.
