Discover your inner gold with 

Bhakti Rose this year...

 A message from Katie: it has literally taken me years of mulling it over to start offering my work online.  2020 is the year I'm getting serious about reaching more people with the power of ayurveda, birthwork and yoga through the magic of the internet.  I used to be cynical about a screen as a learning environment but technology has come so far I have now experienced for myself the amazing capacity for collaboration, communication and community through online portals.  


If you like my work and you want to go deeper with me the first offering I'll be launching is in April and it's a comprehensive women's training in Ayurveda.  This is a body of work you won't find elsewhere covering my spin on classic topics such as food and wellness as well as less conventional territory such as menstrual health, yoni steaming, healing from sexual trauma, miscarriage or pregnancy termination and living in your power as a woman.  Join us!

Ayurveda Goddess

Online Course

Begins 1st April 2020

Bhakti Rose is launching a comprehensive and complete online Ayurveda Goddess Training for women of all ages starting in April 2020.

This training is part sacred immersion into the teachings (practice) and part information gathering and lecture format (education). You will be refreshed, re-balanced and ready to share what you have absorbed. A comprehensive hard copy workbook is included, as well as a set of Japa Mala beads which we mail out to each participant. Please join us, we are beyond excited to watch this community grow and flourish. These teachings really do have the power to help us get comfortable in the madness. We've experienced it ourselves here at Bhakti Rose and seen transformation in so many of our students. We have so much to share.

Bhakti Rose Collective

A monthly Yoga & Ayurveda online offering

We have drawn together some incredible content to juice up your mail-box every month and keep your practice and life flowing in abundant good health and inspired daily spiritual connection. 

The Bhakti Rose Collective is a subscription only group of women who each month will receive exclusive audio and video content from Katie as well as beautifully curated mini e-books, special offers and a bunch of wisdom filled resource pointers. Think robust and helpful content anchored in a particular theme that you can practically and easily integrate into your life. The content can also be used as teaching inspiration if you are a yoga teacher or facilitator. In addition, you’ll get recipes, playlists, books, quotes and poems, all woven around our monthly theme and carefully selected and gracefully presented by us for you. 

The Yoga of Birth 

Online Course

This training is primarily for yoga teachers to support you in becoming a prenatal yoga teacher. You will be certified (through Bhakti Rose) upon completion of all the modules and the homework

This course is also a precious opportunity for midwifes, doulas and expecting mothers to learn about pregnancy yoga. 

Healing Oils

Self-care is the act of creating a life you don’t need to run away from.  Rather than adding ‘treats’ into your life in reaction to the parts you do under sufferance, the project becomes one of designing a life you want to live.  What changes could you make to create a life you love? 

Would you like to receive a Yellow Mandarin essential oil for FREE this month?  Sign up here and I’ll tell you how.  This oil has some INCREDIBLE health benefits … it soothes the nervous system, supports healthy immune response, and promotes digestion.

Sukha Mukha Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

With Idit Hefer-Tamir and Katie Rose

Starting March 2020

“Each one of us has the power to shift global consciousness into the mind of peace. Peace is about learning to transcend disharmony, disorder, disease, and despair by reaching for that inner flame, the irrevocable, incorruptible light that restores harmonic conditions in our cultures, communities, and in ourselves.”  – Maya Tiwari

This Advanced Teacher Training with Katie Rose and Idit Hefer-Tamir is for teachers who are looking to elevate their teaching to a higher level through ongoing yogic studies, mentorship and connection with other teachers and the trainers themselves. Continue to be inspired on your teaching journey by immersing yourself in this module-based course that covers a variety of topics, spanning across many aspects of yoga.​  For teachers who already hold a 200-hour teaching certificate or equivalent, on completion of this module-based course, you will graduate with an Advanced Teacher Training certificate accredited with Yoga Australia.
