Green Lotus Yoga Teacher Training school was established in 2007 by Carol Murphy. Carol is teaching yoga 20 years and training teachers in Ireland and internationally for 10 years. She has graduated over 250 teachers from her trainings. She loves to travel and has taught yoga in London, California, India, South Africa, Morocco, Spain and in 2017 will be teaching in EL Salvador. She teaches Vinyasa style yoga as mindful, strengthening, slow, deep, breath-centered movement, creating various forms and threads to keep her classes creative and alive. She is also very interested in structural yoga therapeutics and uses her background in Neuro-muscular therapy, Iyengar yoga and the work of Tom Myers to work with alignment and tension patterns in the body. Her work synthesis eastern and western approaches and always honours the heart and core essence of yoga.
"Carol has much knowledge in anatomy, alignment and yoga philosophy. All in all, I found the 200 hr Vinyasa TTC to cover a broad spectrum of important and interesting topics, for which I will always be grateful."
Michael Caleb ,Yoga teacher
What an experience! Carol guided me to break boundaries - both mental and physical. Her teaching voice is compassionate yet authoritative, with the right amount of fun thrown in. She always strive to be "heart-ful" in her teaching ... Iook her up. It may very well be the best thing you ever did. For me, it's definitely up there.

“The Art of Teaching Yoga” is a manual for yoga teacher and trainees. This 169 page book offers clear and concise detail outlining yoga instruction, alignment details, common weaknesses teachers need to look out for in the classroom, adjustments and more on a variety of asanas from beginners to advanced. There is also a large section on “Teaching Skills” covering topics such as the importance of observation and demonstration, sequencing, structuring, pacing and principles of vinyasa.
This manual is used on all of the Green Lotus Yoga Teacher Trainings. It is also becoming popular with teachers who have trained in other schools who wish to deepen their knowledge of all aspects of teaching yoga. Many students say it has become their bible for class planning and reference.
A must for teachers and trainees who would like to expand their knowledge of yoga and gain more confidence in their teaching skills.
