What our past students say:

The  study and practice components of the  “Deepening the Experience” course have allowed me to experience a depth of knowledge about the practice and philosophy of yoga that I could not have imagined when embarking on the course.  The guidance, experience and expertise of Angelika, the North Sydney Yoga teachers and the more advanced students have supported me in beginning to put knowledge into practice and to explore the wonderful world of Asthanga Yoga. It has become my touchstone …. Thank you. – Ashley

Angelika successfully balances deepening the physical practice with some study of the philosophy behind Yoga. She created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere to study in, and her nurturing, patient and generous teaching style inspired me to practice in a more dedicated and mindful way. This really is the beginning of a journey of self discovery and I would advise anyone interested in deepening their own practice to sign up for the course. It’s challenging but so rewarding. My practice has never been the same. – Alex

The year I have spent in the Study & Practice course has been one of the most fulfilling and interesting experiences of study and self exploration I have had. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the chance to dive into different aspects of the large body of yoga philosophy, as well as take my personal practice of yoga to a deeper and more consistent level. The mind is a curious place and it’s connection with the body is an amazing mystery. This course is a great place to find out more about this connection. While practicing Ashtanga yoga is an amazing experience in itself, the opportunity to study it more thoroughly with the guidance of a great teacher is a gift. Angelika is a master of her craft, and her passion and knowledge for her art is evident. I’m very grateful to have stepped into this journey with her guidance. – Sandra

I had just finished NSY’s Beginner 1 and 2 courses when I contemplated doing this 1 Year Study Course. Very new to yoga (of any form) all I understood was that it was exercise. A year later, yoga to me is a beautiful and complete form of exercise, and also much, much more. It has revealed to me a practice which encourages self-reflection, healing and spirituality based on ancient traditions. It has also started to cultivate a personal discipline in my physical yoga practice and peaked an interest for me to continually explore, which is having a positive flow-on effect to other parts of my life. Angelika is a gentle and passionate teacher, whose commitment to the complete practice of yoga is inspiring and encouraging. – Yuen-Yuen
