A series of asana workshops to improve technique, and philosophy talks to contextualise the practice


Workshops are a great way to improve your asana technique or learn about other aspects of yoga practice. Heather teaches thematic asana technique workshops and has produced numerous workshops for the innovative Philosophy Talks lecture series on Teacher Training programs, with subjects ranging from Tantra to Sanskrit, with leading scholars

researching the roots of Hatha Yoga from academic institutions like SOAS in London, as well as Trauma-informed Yoga, Digital Marketing Skills, Yoga and Mental Health.

Heather is currently living in Nepal where she teaches weekly classes and yoga workshops for Avata Wellness Centre in Kathmandu.

Nepal summer residency

Classes and workshops

I’m thrilled to be back in Nepal where I’m teaching weekly yoga classes and workshops in Kathmandu and Boudhanath.

Philosophy Talks were an inquiry into
authentic yoga practice

One of Heather Elton’s passions is yoga philosophy. She has presented numerous Philosophy Talks in conjunction as part of her Yoga Teacher Training programs in Goa, Nepal and London to contextualise yoga practice, covering subjects such as history and philosophy, anatomy and biomechanics of movement, trauma sensitive yoga, yoga practice among Indian sādhus, as well as digital marketing for yoga teachers.

The workshops below were both part of our London Teacher Training programme and offered as standalone events. Guest lecturers have included Jim Mallinson, Ian Baker, Mark Singleton, Daniela Bevilacqua, Ruth Westoby, Matthew Clark, Andrew McGonigle, Leela Miller, Norman Blair, Kat Owens, Heather Mason and Kelly McHugh.
