Experience niseko

Study in Our Winter Wonderland

Dubbed the “Powder Capital of the World”, Niseko is a powder hot spot, home to some of the best ski slopes in Asia and the world. It is known as one of the snowiest resorts on the planet, and has been credited as the #1 Ski Resort in Asia. The resort includes a bustling village at its base with lively nightlife and shopping, but is most famous for its highly coveted “champagne powder” – the lightest, fluffiest snow you ever will ride!

Along with your yoga studies, you’ll have plenty of time to take advantage of everything that make Niseko special: the natural hotsprings (or Onsen’s in Japanese), Japan’s world-famous cuisine, and the endless powder days. Japan’s Onsens are recognized for their purifying health benefits, and students are encouraged to use them as often as possible! There are so many to choose from in the local area each with different benefits.

During the course you will call the Yard Yoga studio your home! Your rest days during the course will be flexible, and we will make sure to keep track of the weather, and schedule in your days off whenever there are fresh tracks on offer. There will also be many opportunities to take what you learn in the classroom, and transfer this out it into the world and your daily life in Niseko.

The principles of teaching, cueing, assisting, demonstrating, theming, sequencing, and how to put together a well-rounded and thoughtful Hatha, Flow, and Power Vinyasa class. Learn hundreds of poses in both their English and Sanskrit names, and the foundations of each pose from the ground up.
Learn the western anatomy of bones, joints, connective tissue, muscles, breathing, nervous and circulatory systems, injuries, and as well as basic prenatal yoga. You will also learn the energetic effects of yoga on the body, and will study PRANA in detail. What it is, the different techniques that direct prana, Kundalini energy and its infinite potential, the chakra systems, bandhas, Ayurveda, the vayus, and the nadis.
Practice different styles and techniques of meditation and pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) everyday. Develop a deep understanding and connection with both so you can easily share their immense benefits with your students.
Study Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and how these teachings provide a very real model that can be applied to daily life. You will also get to discuss and learn in detail about Yoga’s journey to the West, and the most influential yogis of our time.
Discuss the ethics of yoga, code of conduct, and important qualities of a successful teacher. Learn about the business of yoga, defining your mission, marketing yourself, and setting your goals and dreams.
The fastest way to becoming a great yoga teacher is practice, practice, and more practice. Students will be given plenty of classroom time to plan many styles of classes: from a challenging, fast-paced Power practice, to a super mellow, relaxing yin stretch-out, and everything in between. Emphasis will be made to try different classes out on each as often as possible during and after the course. This is a great opportunity to receive feedback, get creative, and learn from one another.

Your Instructor


ritual founder

I have always been fascinated by the human mind and body. Through my journey to discover more, I found myself in the Himalayas of India studying to become a yoga teacher, and the practice has been an integral part of my life ever since.

Yoga set me on a path of personal discovery, development, and self-healing that has helped me to overcome many challenges in my life. Through my teaching I aim to share that which inspires me in the hope of helping others to on their own journey.

I am an E-RYT 500, Vinyasa-Ashtanga, Yin, Meditation, Breathwork and Yoga Therapy instructor. I have also studied the practice of Ayurveda and holistic massage both in India and Thailand.

My classes combine meditation, breathwork and physical asana, dynamic classes are often sprinkled with a little challenge and lots of fun, while restorative classes are grounding and more meditative.
