200 Hr Teacher Training



This 200 Hr program is open to new and experienced teachers. The Soundmoves Method is a highly specific way to practice Yoga. If you are interested in an wholistic approach that weaves together breath and movement and mindfulness from the beginning then this is the right place to start. The method is deceptively simple and easy to learn however it has many design features that make it unique. I suggest you try  the free lesson below just to be sure because no description comes close to the  experience.

Advantages of this program

These features make this course unique and special

  • Soundmoves Tracks

    Soundmoves music is published free for streaming but if you want a personal copy of our entire range of music productions then they are included in all our courses. The extra tracks include a range of time signatures to support personal practice.

  • Personal Attention

    Support to get you through the program comes directly from the teacher and the creator of the method. Its my pleasure to serve to answer your questions and to help you plan your approach towards completion. We also have the community to share your opinions and offer help to others.

  • Yoga for HRV

    The leading edge in modern yoga therapy is the focus on emotional security and mental stability. The Yoga poses are helpful but not an instant answer to the wellbeing. Stephen Porges is the keynote speaker at the top level Yoga conferences in recent year. His contribution is based on an understanding of heart rate variability.

Noah is hands down the best teacher I've ever come across. I feel so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in his 200h YTT in Goa, and will be taking many more of his courses in the future. Noah is literally a living encyclopedia for all things anatomy and philosophy

Evelyn Krull

Noah is authentic and teaches with integrity and from the heart. Highly recommended if you are looking for the real thing!

Didi Bulle

You have to try at least once. It's so soothing to let yourself be guided by this special music that immerses you into an inner trance. And Noah's voice, like an angel, that helps us reconnect as soon as the mind escapes into thoughts. Noah discreetly gives a multitude of details that answer my questions sometimes even before I even wonder them. A pure moment of peace and happiness.
