  • Basic understanding and direction to sequence your own classes
  • Your own personalized asana practice
  • Your own personalized seated practice (based in breathing awareness, classical pranayama, and mantra meditation techniques)
  • A greater context for, and understanding of, Yoga in its entirety, beyond the physical approach to asana, so caring & sharing and love of this planet can be interpreted to others.

Centered Yoga holds our one-month residential yoga teacher training program at Samahita Retreat, a leading destination for yoga retreats and holidays in Koh Samui, Thailand, along with a number of advanced yoga training courses to advance the student and teacher.

Paul Dallaghan, Centered Yoga’s founder and lead teacher, has spent over 20 years one-on-one with noted yogi Sri O.P. Tiwari, master of pranayama and head of the oldest yoga institute, Kaivalyadham. He also reached the most advanced asana level with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the late master of ashtanga vinyasa yoga. Both of these great teachers personally certified Paul in these practices, a unique position as the only one to receive this double honor. Paul is also completing a full-time PhD from Emory University, USA, applying the yoga practices to scientific research.
