Pure Yoga is dedicated to assisting others to benefit from Yoga as a healing modality, for self development, to deepen personal practice, to connect with others on the journey and as an evolutionary system to awaken  to ones spiritual nature. 


I loved the scope of the 108 training; it provides in-depth insight into various yogic practices that has enabled me to more fully conceptualise and create a personal practice that fits with me.  As the training takes place over several months it provides a supportive space  to apply yoga to life, to live more fully and navigate challenge. I would therefore recommend this course to anyone seeking yoga’s ancient gift of modern self- empowerment.

Kate Martin - Yoga Teacher - Auckland, New Zealand

108 Yogic journey training I highly recommend for someone who is a yoga practitioner and would like to dive deeper into the wisdom of yoga and learn more about tools that can be helpful in our daily lives. For me, I established a stronger connection to my intuition to recognize what I need for my individual soul, body and mind and what tools to use when necessary throughout my days- from Asana, through Pranayama leading to Dhyana as well as constant studying and observing everyday situations with higher awareness. Ajapa Japa Meditation is now rooted in my practice as well as Yoga Nidra. I also learned about Sanskrit pronunciation in detail so I am able to chant Mantras with better understanding of the sound and meaning of it. Pragyadhara and her team of teachers offered me their strong support during the training, answered all my questions and created a sangha that feels like home.

Jana Formankova - Yoga Teacher, Auckland, New Zealand. 

I  know that what I have gained is immeasurable and I seem unable to find a tidy  package of words to explain it. I know my focus has moved away from Asana as my 'peak pose' and towards what practices and techniques will, moment by moment,  best enable me to express Yogic philosophy in this particular life. 
I remain profoundly grateful to Pragyadhara, Tracey, Swami Kailash and Gyanmudra for  their patience, generosity of spirit, unfailing kindness and for being outstanding examples  of living the kind yogic life to which I can aspire. 

Hari aum - Rhyn Gabriel. 

 I thoroughly enjoyed the way in which Pragyadhara taught the course, the way it was explained, the resources, the schedule and the energy of the course.  I felt held in the space and learnt so many new concepts I was not aware of and I loved the bite size pieces given without it being overwhelming. 


We were in the heart of this course during a difficult time with lockdowns and Covid, and it was such a life saver for me to have these practices in place to ride these waves.  She was fantastic online and I never thought I would be so engaged for long periods of time online, but I was and it was amazing and a credit to her skills as a teacher.
