Due to the Covid pandemic, all my ‘live’ yoga projects in 2020 are cancelled. 2021 dates for the Himalayan Yoga Adventures and Nepal TTC are updated below. As a result of having to adapt 100 hours of the Goa TTC ‘online,’ I’m now more enthusiastic about the new ‘online’ world of yoga. Plans are underway for an online Yoga Teacher Training program. But what I’m most excited about is my Mentorship Program. If you need advice about any aspect of yoga practice, I’d love to share my experience and wisdom of over 35 years on the yogic path. Private 1:2:1 online sessions (as many as you like) dedicated to help you find your way on your yoga path.

Private 1:2:1 ‘online’ sessions with Heather Elton is designed to your personal needs and will improve your asana technique and teaching skills. You can ask any question you might have about yoga, get fresh eyes on your asana practice and a critique of your teaching style. Mentorship gives you ‘special attention’ to find your voice, step into your power and become an extraordinary yoga teacher.

If you’re a yoga teacher who wants to improve your teaching skills or need direction to build your business, or are practitioner who wants advice on asana technique, then mentorship is for you. We’ll have an initial conversation to determine your needs, or goals, and create a bespoke program just for you. There is a gulag of information out there, but no one tells you what to do.

Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Teacher Training programs that take you to the spiritual heart of the practice 

Level 1 (200+ hours) & Level 2 (300+ hours), Yoga Alliance USA and Yoga Alliance Professionals UK accreditation

We aim to give you the highest skills possible to teach and reveal the spiritual path underlying the practice so you can glimpse your true nature: Purusha (pure consciousness). We want you to live the yogic reality: to take the practice off the mat, integrate the knowledge into your life and share it with others.

Yoga is the path to enlightenment: Moksha. While there are many different authentic paths of Hatha yoga, we believe that they merge into one essential teaching that uses the body and the breath to liberate ourselves from suffering.

Himalayan Yoga Adventures

Himalayan Yoga Adventures take you on a journey of devotion 

to the heart of traditional yoga practices

The legacy of spiritual practice in the Himalayas has inspired us to create spiritual adventures that provide you with an opportunity to delve deeper into yoga, understand the essence of the Deity – both from a Buddhist and Hindu perspective – and bring you closer to your own inner guru.

Our Himalayan Yoga Adventures take you through divine landscapes to sacred sites where you will hear stories of the great yogis, observe ancient rituals and contemporary practices, smell the burning camphor and incense, hear divine chanting, recite mantras and spin prayer wheels, meditate with monks and receive teachings from spiritual masters.

Yoga Retreats

Yoga retreats integrate ancient wisdom traditions into a mindful practice

to diminish suffering in your life

A yoga retreat may be the best vacation you’ll ever have. Why? Because it’s a holiday with purpose. Sure, you’ll still catch a few rays, explore some cultural sites, have a few drinks, meet intriguing people, but all this will seem even better after a yoga class.

Everything seems more profound because you exist in a heightened state of awareness. A dip in the pool feels different after yoga. The organic food is even tastier. The sunset more saturated; the rays more cosmic.

Yoga retreats are an excellent way to travel alone, yet feel safe with the support of a group of like-minded individuals. You can be a yogi and still have fun! A yoga retreat is a holiday to last a lifetime.

Heather has taught yoga retreats in spectacular places for over a decade, from beaches in Goa and Thailand, the jungles of Sri Lanka and Costa Rica, the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and Sierra Nevada in Andalucia, and chic venues in Europe – from Crete and Puglia to France, Spain and Turkey.
