The Functional Flow 200hour

Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training

A trauma-informed teacher training for facilitating mystical and healing experiences through functional movement.

A yoga class can offer us cool effects 😎, but can it really offer us lasting, meaningful changes?

So often, our practice can result in injury, lack of motivation, disappointment even…

We believe that yoga do it all…

HEAL, bring fitness, transform our mind and gift us profound mystical experiences.

But how do we ensure it actually does that?


Not only is it possible;

it is natural and simple, easy to learn and share.

Yet, it’s rare.

It can take years before we realise we are going in circles…


Learn a functional approach, and feel confident that you have the power to transform the way the body, mind and emotions can function in helpful ways.

A functional approach will completely set you apart as a yoga teacher, and bring a deep, embodied wisdom to your own practice.

What is Functional Flow?

It is a safer, deeper embodied movement practice using functional movement to provide strength, flexibility and health

Lead teacher

Ava is the director of Functional Spirituality and the yoga and meditation centre Spanda School. She is a philosopher with a degree from the University of Sydney, retreat leader, business owner and somatic therapist. Her deepest passions are non-dual philosophies, community healing and looking at the impacts of spirituality.

Ava's path started with a ferver for awakening and non-duality. However over the years her path has matured with a more functional approach. Her work now considers the wide-spread complex trauma that lies at the heart of almost every obstacle to happy, healthy and connected living, and marries profound mystical approaches with nervous system regulation.

She has trained with Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few.

Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the phenomenal teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her family and animals.
