Marma Point Therapy

Marma points are a junction on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints. Marma points are much more than a connection of tissue and fluids, they are points of the vital life force (prana). Learn to use marma point therapy through massage techniques and partner work.

Aromatherapy and Bach Floral Therapy

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.

Bach flower remedies are an alternative or complementary treatment that is used for emotional problems and pain. They're made from watered-down extracts from the flowers of wild plants. Learn the use of essential oils, as well as Bach Florals to deepen relaxation and relieve stress.


Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.” It stems from the ancient Vedic culture and was taught for many thousands of years in an oral tradition from accomplished masters to their disciples. This knowledge can be applied to everyday life, but trainees will also learn how to incorporate the principles into their teaching/healing of others.


Based upon the premise that Nature will, given the right conditions, cure all illnesses. It is a system of natural medicine that focuses on the importance of our lifestyle: fresh air, exercise, sunshine, wholesome diet, pure water, healthy environment, rest and emotional balance. Learn to use Naturopathy in your personal life, as well as how to incorporate these lessons into your teaching practice.

Circadian Rhythm Therapy

Used to correct sleep disorders and relieve stress by observing the nature that surrounds us, Circadian Rhythm Therapy can be used to create new, healthy habits. Discover the benefits of a more natural way of life and learn how to share this knowledge with others.

Plant Medicine (Herbalism and beyond)

A medicinal plant is a plant that is used with the intention of maintaining health, to be administered for a specific condition, or both, whether in modern or in traditional medicine. During the training, you will discuss the use of traditional medicinal plants and roots such as garlic, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, lavender, chamomile, oregano, and cacao.

Learn how to use these gifts of nature to heal and nurture naturally. Experience the magic of Cacao through the ceremony and learn to guide others through a deep meditation using this beautiful plant.

Energy healing modules include:


Reiki is an energy healing practice that is usually done by placing the hands in a series of positions over or slightly above the body. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level.


The word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” but references a spiritual energy center within the human body. Within these chakras is 'prana,' or the ultimate pure, universal healing energy, that is all around you and within you, to keep you healthy, happy, and vibrant. Learn the art of Chakra Energy Healing to help others.

Shadow Work

The shadow, according to Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, consists of the parts of yourselves you choose to repress or hide that you don’t like. We do that by pushing them down into your unconsciousness during childhood. Many negative issues that affect your life can result in keeping your shadow hidden and locked away. These can include:

  • Addictions
  • Uncontrollable rage/anger
  • Social anxiety
  • Obsessive/compulsive disorders
  • Sexual deviancy
  • Depression
  • Self-sabotage
  • Neuroticism
  • Limiting beliefs


In collaboration with Shadow's work, journaling your emotions and new discoveries as you experience them - stream-of-consciousness writing - gives you an unfiltered window into yourself. Writing your insights and reviewing them later helps encode the discovery into your awareness. Yoga training is a deep exploration into higher consciousness. Journaling is a way to trace this journey.

The idea for Transformational Yoga started from a journey to the East and the evolution of a student to teacher to a trainer. Inspired by a trip to India to train in advanced Yoga and Meditation teachings, Gillian Grant returned to Paris determined to create a Yoga training style that offers a traditional practice with a modern twist.

​Yoga is constantly transforming to adapt to the needs of the practitioner. New styles have developed out of ancient teachings and this has allowed yoga to continue to thrive. Transformational Yoga is based on the belief that training can offer the best of both traditional and modern that will prepare a new teacher to offer more than one style and adapt to the modern student's needs. The training is adapted to allow for exploration, discovery, and strong personal development, both physically and mentally.

Starting with group classes, Transformational Yoga has expanded to workshops, and affordable yoga teacher training in Paris, France. Most recently, Transformational Yoga has expanded to international retreats and trainings. The students and trainees come from all over the world. You can find all of the info within the pages of this website. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

​The accreditations and registrations meet or exceed every international standard for yoga teachers. More importantly, graduates are confident, competent, and ready to work immediately after graduation. The mission is to raise the standards and redefine professional yoga teacher education, and to ensure their graduates are employable in every public and private sector worldwide. Transformational Yoga trains tomorrow’s yoga leaders.
