“My 300hr training at The Shala really exceeded any expectations I had coming into it. What I crave more and more in life are authentic experiences, and the course was just that – genuine, authentic and deep. Tamsin, Tom and Adila are all truly excellent instructors and human beings, who walk the walk and talk the talk. I really enjoyed the fact that the course is split up into 3 modules of 100hrs each with a few months in between, giving one the time to integrate the lessons of each module and to return to the next with deeper introspection and insight. And what I especially appreciated was the great balance between physical asana, pranayama, philosophy, anatomy and therapy, as there are many trainings out there that only focus on the physical aspects of yoga, and therefore don’t really do the holistic universe of the practice much justice!” – Leigh Bosch

“Tamsin, Tom and Adila’s abundance of knowledge and lived experience of the practice and application of the many facets of yoga encouraged us to deepen our study of the yogic path, and to also examine our behaviors and practically apply these tools to our own lives. The Shala 300-hour Teacher Training awakened aspects of myself that continue to inspire my personal growth and my contribution as a yoga practitioner and teacher. I feel incredibly privileged to have been expertly guided and gracefully held through such a truly transformative process.” – Sheona Mitchley

“The 300hr YTT has been a completely transformative experience. I signed up wanting to be a better teacher however I feel I completed the process as a better person. A person more aware, more considerate, more spacious and reasonable. If you want to teach from a place of honesty, clarity & authenticity then I strongly recommend The Shala’s 300HR YTT. Tamsin, Thomas & Adila teach the practice of yoga by example, they hold space for every student’s unique expression and personal experience with empathy, consideration and confidentiality.” – Mikkie-dene Le Roux

“In October 2015, I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at The Shala Cape Town Yoga School. On completing the course, I was honoured to be employed full-time by The Shala as the Studio Manager as well as being given the opportunity to teach classes. I invested all of my time, energy and love into my role, and 4 years later I was thrilled to enter the 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course at the studio I call home. I can honestly testify that this course is phenomenal. Not only is it incredibly comprehensive but the content truly reflects the essence of The Shala. The course ensures growth on a skills level and encourages some serious self-development. This course will change your life and will fully prepare you for the journey that is yet to come. I am forever grateful for this experience. It has taught me to show up for myself, for my community and for the practice of Yoga.” – Kathleen Booyse

Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community globally. The spirit of the Yoga Alliance Standards is to include a school in the RYS (Registered Yoga School) Directory only when its YTT (Yoga Teacher Training):

  • Has a definite, pre-defined curriculum that meets the Yoga Alliance Standards.
  • Is taught by yoga teacher trainers who are qualified to train teachers.
  • Offers a consistent approach that is conducive to depth, rather than a survey of different approaches.

All standards for a RYS are intended to be clear, implementable reflections of the above criteria.

The Shala – Cape Town Yoga School is a fully registered school with Yoga Alliance. This course requires 100% attendance to meet Yoga Alliance standards.
