200 hr Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga TTC, Goa
With Carol Murphy and Noah McKenna

Jan 7th - Feb 1st 2017

This training brings together the talents and experience of Carol Murphy and Noah McKenna. Carol Murphy, the primary trainer, has been teaching yoga for 20 years and training teachers in Ireland and internationally for 10 years. Noah McKenna, founder of Sukhashanti yoga will be teaching on the anatomy and philosophy modules of this training. He also has 20 years yoga experience and leads his own trainings in Mysore, India.

Both Carol and Noah are body workers with a deep love of everything anatomical. Noah is a Chiropractor and Carol a Neuro-muscular therapist and so you can expect to gain a much deeper awareness of your body in relation to your practice, your health and your being.

Develop your asana practice and deepen your understanding of your body through anatomy and alignment studies.
Develop your individual teaching voice, as an expression of your true self and learn how to teach yoga and share the gifts it has to offer safely and confidently.
Create deeper spiritual understanding in a life-connecting, non-dogmatic way.
Learn how diet can help your practice, your health and your life.
Delve into the depths of subtle anatomy and learn healing meditations, myo-fascial release and energy balancing work.
Learn the gift of meditation.
Learn the basics of Ayurveda and the holistic aspects of the practice.
Learn the business side of yoga and how to operate as a teacher ethically and effectively.
You can also expect to work hard with the support of a group that wishes to evolve through the path of yoga like yourself. You will be challenged to journey deeper within, to move beyond your self-limiting beliefs and stories that hold you back from moving forward with your intentions and dreams. This is a physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually demanding experience. It is both intense and wonderful. Expect to bend, sweat, ache, collapse, stand up, strengthen, open, cry and giggle. Expect also to move deeper into relationship with the core nature of who you are, to connect with your authentic self and to learn how to spread the teachings of yoga from that place.

We recommend that students have 2 year yoga practice before embarking on a Yoga TTC.
Our Courses are certified with Yoga Alliance U.K and U.S

The Organiser

Organiser: Carol Murphy

  • Hello! My name is Carol Murphy. I love exploring yoga asana, anatomy, Ayurveda and everything to do with philosophy; I also love (raw/) vegan cooking and meditation! I started Green Lotus Yoga teacher training school in 2007. Since then I have graduated over 200 teachers from my training throughout Ireland and abroad. Most of my work is in Ireland but I have also taught yoga in London, California, India, South Africa, Morocco and Spain. I like to teach Vinyasa style yoga as mindful, strengthening, slow, deep, breath-centered movement, creating various forms and threads to keep things alive. I am practising yoga 27 years and teaching 20. My background is in Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa,. I am currently finishing up studies in Neuro-muscular therapy, which is a form of physical therapy that works with kinetic chains and acknowledges the interconnected nature of the body, just like yoga does… In addition to the above, I have 2 degrees in philosophy <3. I have studied Ayurveda and yoga therapy in India. I am a raw vegan educator (although not 100% vegan or raw), a qualified sports massage therapist, a trained Art of Being Tantra instructor, a qualified Trance Dance teacher and I practice and study the Reiki Tummo Method, which combines open heart meditations with reiki and kundalini healing work. These gifts created solidity and ground from which I can rise and fly, roots and wings, creating safety, balance, expansion and joy in my life and for this I am grateful.
