Anya delivers a REVOLUTIONARY PERSPECTIVE on yoga and life that will free your body and mind and fully prepare you to be able to share your love of yoga with others. 

Enter into the world of teaching yoga with NEXT LEVEL information that will set you apart from other yoga teachers from the get go! 

From this, you can teach super-power classes, core vinyasa flow, a modified Ashtanga-style class, a restorative class, a slow-anatomy focused class - but you'll be able to do with intelligent modifications so that every body in your class benefits as much as possible. 

Most teacher trainings teach you how to instruct yoga. With this course you will learn how to TEACH yoga! There is a BIG difference. 

Registered Senior Yoga Teacher, Passionate Consciousness Warrior and master trainer for Sadie Nardini, Anya teaches with clarity, authentic expression and a message of positive self-centring.

Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is a perspective on yoga.

CSV Yoga empowers.
Stand in your truth, 
and shine.

CSV Yoga creates space.
Light up your potential
from the inside out.

CSV Yoga transforms.
Move the way
you were born to move.

Get a new perspective.
Start a revolution.
Core Strength.

Join the next wave of yoga.

Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is a transitional style.

Break linear and move biomechanically not traditionally for optimal strength and safety within vinyasa-based practices.

New-generation alignment uses myofascial muscle meridians
as a primary tool for function and flow.

This movement methodology can be applied to any yoga style
empowering students and teachers to their next level


***This training includes registration to Leslie Kaminoff's YOGA FUNDAMENTALS ANATOMY COURSE***

Leslie Kaminoff is one of the world's leading yoga anatomists. 
This course will provide you with cutting edge anatomy videos and notes that you can go through in your own time. This will make up some of your non-contact hours. We will review all this information in class, and you will receive a 12 month membership to the course. This is AMAZING!!! seriously!


Over the last few years Anya has been studying and working alongside world-renowned yoga master and founder of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, Sadie Nardini. This approach to yoga is like no other. Next-level information, steeped in tradition with a massive injection of anatomy and biomechanics information... and perfectly moulded to benefit modern-day living. 


****This training also includes a full day's certification in ACCESS CONSCIOUSNESS BARS*** 

This is a beautiful therapy and training that offers some great tools and practices to help people to access more consciousness whilst letting go of some of the 'stuff' that weighs our cognitive mind down. This will give you some more tricks up your sleeve in supporting yourself in following your passions BUT also will give you the certification to practice this therapy on friends, family and paying clients, should you wish to. It's the most gentle, relaxing therapy that simple involves touching specific points on the head. 


You must attend 90% of the training contact hours to gain certification. Missing hours can be made up with private sessions or at a different training on the relevant day. 

If you're interested in taking your own practice and understanding of yoga to the next level and potentially sharing this with others. This course will help you to become a confident, competent and super-knowledgeable yoga teacher.
