The Moon Series

The Philosophy

CHAKRA EVOLUTION is an evolutionary Yoga Teacher Training programme, rooted in the true roots of yoga. Yoga is a system of union and a healing of the physical, spiritual and emotional systems of the body. It is SACRED BODY WORK, enabling a multidimensional healing experience, a connectedness to the deepest layers of our true self: the emotional self, the spiritual self and the soulful self. Its role is to unify the mind and ego, so that peace and love reign within us.

Yoga is not just the act of doing but the state of being and living. This Yoga Teacher Training Programme has been developed to train a new and ancient lineage of yoga teachers/sacred body workers, who are concerned about the welfare of ALL of humanity. They know their purpose is to help others heal and to provide a way for people to connect to the deeper layers of the self to be able to heal all aspects. The Moon Series teaches stillness and presence, it allows for a deep healing experience, this is a complete experience of sacred healing through the most ancient of all systems- the chakra system.

“I believe that this Teacher Training has the power to change Yoga as we know it, to show the western world that yoga is more than asana, that it is sacred body work with the ability to begin to completely heal what they never even existed within them. I have for many years experiences the profound release, healing and life changing occurrences of this yoga system on my clients lives and I am honoured to pass on this sacred healing work to those who feel it is their souls purpose to assist with the healing of others.”

Collette has been practicing Yoga for  21 years, she is founder and owner of  The Urban Buddha Yoga Studio in Lancaster, UK. Trained in many styles of Yoga and teaching a variety of styles, Collette created a yoga that enabled her to teach her deep love of spiritual philosophy and her ability to bring emotional releases and self – healing to all her yogis. The class in which she taught this style of yoga was called Higher self yoga, it allowed her students to access deeper parts of themselves; free their physical bodies, their spirit bodies, their souls and hearts. Spiritual philosophy enriched the classes to allow for more awareness and understanding of ‘the self’. Her classes soon became very busy; full of people looking for emotional healing, physical healing, respite from the world and to release their stress.

The Teacher

This Teacher Training Programme is rooted in Collette’s knowledge of physical asana and its relation to the emotional body. If you want become a Yoga teacher who is interested in the spiritual aspect of Yoga, deeply concerned about the well being of all people, want to learn the anatomy of asana and how it affects the body, use the chakra system to access emotional healing as well as physical healing – then this is for you! The Moon Series is rooted in yin energy, stillness and depth.

I came on this retreat expecting to learn yoga postures, correct breathing and so on so that would be able to teach when I left. What I received was much, much more than I had expected! This course is more than just yoga, it goes into so much depth about the emotion and spiritual aspects.

This really has helped me with self-realisation and awareness of my behavior with others. Through the emotional and spiritual work much has opened, more depth than I have ever experienced from any yoga before. The teaching by Collette was second to none: nothing but heart felt work and great enthusiasm for us to learn.

The knowledge I have left with in such a short time is crazy, no stones have been left unturned. The style of teaching given by Collette: group work, one to one, individual, kinesthetic, audio and visual really helped me absorb this work. I am fully equipped with many class plans and different types of meditation breathing techniques and of course Asana. I am more than ready to go out and teach.

The group were all selected from different backgrounds/countries and lifestyles for this training and I doubt there could have been a better bunch! They were all very supportive and inclusive: I’m not your ‘usual’ type of yoga teacher and I could not have felt more welcome and supported. A big thank you to everyone who I shared this special experience with. I really appreciate the wisdom and time given from you Collette. Thanks again!

“yoga homies fo life” lol


Ow, what can I say! What a training!! Collette’s yoga teacher training was nothing like I had ever experienced. Not only did I walk out a yoga teacher at the end, I also experienced a deep embodiment and soul journey through the chakra’s along the way.
Just a teacher training course is an understatement! Collette has brought forth all her years of experience in yoga, her own deep personal souls journey and her own personal commitment, dedication and love to the growth of each and every person she works with into her trainings. I feel privileged to not only be able to work with her, but to be a teacher of her work. I am not a typical yoga teacher, and I felt every step of the way that my unique personality, gifts and journey were encouraged to help me become the teacher than is truly authentically me. The journey through her training for me was not just becoming a teacher, but a physical and emotional journey into myself, unravelling many idea‘s, beliefs and patterns that hold me back from living to my true potential. I felt deeply taken care of each step of the way and am filled with a wealth of knowledge, that I not only learnt but was able to embody during the training.
Collette is an incredible teacher, guide and holds such a strong space forpersonal growth, am truly grateful to be able to have been a part of her training.


The yoga training in Bali was many things for me, a chance to relate with the like minded, a tremendous challenge or many challenges and a deep dive into the many possibilities of self exploration. Each day unfolded like a sacred ceremony, many us were broken down and reassembled, not once but nearly every day, sometimes more than  once per day, Collette afforded us each no quarter and with supreme resolve, took each of us to our limit(70% resistance to be precise) over and over, day after day…with this training I have been renewed, revitalized and reborn, I would reccommend highly to anyone who is ready for the challenge and the experience of a lifetime.

Thank you.


Chakra Evolution Teacher Training, is exactly what I needed and was searching for. Embodiment of love, power and wisdom. Not one of these flames were excluded. I was nourished, held and firmly guided,  but not so firm that I fractured into re traumatising myself. Incredibly intuitively guided by Collette into where I needed to push against sloth but passionately come into my power. Lovingly held where my ego crumbled, died and reborn out of habitual victimhood and helplessness.

Do you want to crack open for good; with commitment, truth, devotion and community?

This is for you; as Collette holds these elements within her soul.

I went in thinking I knew who I was but came out rebirthed into my soul. Embodied, powerful, strong yet soft.


I cannot recommend this training enough. It is now a month on from completing the training and I am constantly discovering within my teaching, the depth and variety of knowledge and experience that I gained over the 2 weeks intensive training. We gained knowledge in anatomy, spirituality, practical skills, care and nurture of clients, chakras, energy systems, yoga philosophy, the list is endless. We were given copious opportunities to practice and really hone our skills as teachers. We were immersed in this unique yoga, experiencing it first hand so that we are able to teach now from our own experience and understanding. This also allowed us to grow and develop individually, creating the seeds of wisdom from which to draw upon. The teacher training course is taught in a nurturing, caring, truthful way – the way in which I now teach my classes. This is a deeply emotional and spiritual yoga and much as I highly recommend this training, it is not for the lighthearted. Be prepared to really search into the truth of who you are(light & dark), to work hard, to be challenged, to fail and to keep trying, to be open and experience new things and most of all to trust in yourself, the yoga and the immense care and wisdom of Collette.


The teacher training was perfectly balanced in every sense. Although the course was intense it was balanced with very relaxed downtime. The practical – theoretical balance was also perfect. We were given the opportunity to make mistakes on a practical and personal level with no judgments made from Collette or the group.

We were taught deep anatomical yoga which I have yet to experience in any other yoga class. On a personal level I gained skills in honesty, discipline and was allowed to feel my areas of improvement throughout the fortnight with no judgment. Besides beeing a better yoga teacher, I feel I have been equipped to be a better Dad, partner and son! The course was worth for the personal improvements I made.


I am excited beyond measure. Still processing the course. The balance of the course – was perfect; Physical, emotional, Soulful, packed with theoretical & practical knowledge. I felt like I received tremendous help and encouragement in the places I lacked on with my confidence. The support from Collette and from my fellow students was amazing. Collettes’s guidance was streching out beyond the formal course, she offered so much guidance on a personal and professional level. It was made very clear to me that this is so much more then just Yoga and how I can use this to work alongside palliative care, for those who are terminally ill and to emotionally support their families. I realized how our own spiritual growth and guidance from a guide is crucial for this work as a Yoga Teacher. I fell privileged to have been a part of this adventure. Looking forward to be implementing everything what I learned an can’t wait to evolve with this amazing work and spread it to the world.


Collette provided a truly holistic teacher training. She shared her profound knowledge and skills of yoga asana, adjustments, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga enriched with Ayurveda elements. There were also many opporunities to learn from each other. The group composition was really inspiring and brought people with different perspectives and backgrounds together. Next to the intensive practical and theoretical training, we were taken on a very personal journey. The embodyment of this chakra based yoga style helped me to grow personally and I am looking forward to share these insights as a yoga teacher. I am grateful for this unique and amazing training that was also a lot of fun

Thank you!


Chakra Evolution Moon Series Teacher Training was by far the greatest training I could have taken part in. Not only did I receive deeply embodied teaching from a fountain of wisdom Collette, I also received personal soul growth! This was so much more than just the training.

We were given all the tools and even more to become confident, safe & knowledgeable teachers. After completion of the training, the coursework just firmly implanted and solidified what I had learnt, and also empowered me to research and learn even more.

Immediately I felt comfortable with teaching classes, I knew I had all that was needed to walk straight into a class and teach. Whilst there were lots of nerves, these weren’t due to being unconfident with my knowledge.

I would highly recommend this training, not only does it allow you to become a yoga teacher it allows you to learn how to hold space, how to work with the emotional underpinnings of yoga (which is so missing in these modern times!) It brings you the deeper into connection with your self first & foremost to know the chakras within yourself.


Chakra evolution moon series teacher training is more than just asana practice. Collette is an excellent teacher who combines the power of the chakras with traditional philosophy and practice. I learnt so much during the two week intensive training; physical asana, philosophy, chakras, anatomy and physical adjustment. This allowed me to deepen my own personal practice and left me feeling ready and confident to begin teaching. I also felt truly blessed to have met beautiful people from all walks of life on this teacher training who are now not only wonderful friends but form a strong and supportive chakra evolution teacher community. I would highly recommend this training to anyone who feels this resonates with them!
