Gavin Colthart - 500 hour certificate

Originally from New Zealand, Gavin was introduced to a deeper exploration of yoga in 1998 in Brighton, studying in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition with Christina Ireland and colleagues. He discovered Vajrasati yoga in 2003 and found a real connection with its deep body understanding, meditative foundation, and light-spirited delivery.

His experience as a healthcare practitioner and sports instructor, plus his longstanding interest in Buddhist thought and practice, combine to enrich both his practice and his teaching.
Gavin graduated from the 500 hour Vajrasati teacher training in September 2009 and has been actively teaching Vajrasati yoga since February 2009.



A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding.

— Mahatma Gandhi
