Coming from South Africa, Cath is passionate about social justice and how we navigate the divided worlds of yoga and mindfulness in which ‘traditional’ communities of practice and marginalised groups are often ignored and overlooked. As a simple yet very powerful practice of nourishing our hearts and minds, mindfulness serves as a foundation for living life more fully. Through the study of mindfulness, Cath will take students on a journey that is anchored in cultivating kindness.

Angela Pham

Angela Pham
Busines Coach & Mentor

Since becoming a qualified yoga teacher in 2017, Angela realised that there was a lack of support for new yoga teachers post YTT.  She found that the most challenging part of turning a passion like yoga into a career is knowing how to start and being aware of what to expect on the journey.  As a mentor and business coach for Whole Self, she serves the soon to be yoga teachers and prepares them for life post YTT.  She works with the students on ways to hustle, the business side of yoga, leveraging tech tools to build their brand and ways to maintain self care as a new yoga teacher.

Some of our guest teachers include:

Mona Lisa Godfrey, Niraj Shah, Natasha Kerry, Nicki Ratcliffe, Jonelle Lewis, Rosie Millen, Emily Mergaert and Jasmine Hemsley.

Video Testimonials


“Incredible yoga teacher training course that encompasses so much more than just yoga! I want to do it all over again! The past 6 months truly has had a lasting impact on me and the way I live my life.”

Kate Worthington

When I rang Julie my father had just passed away and I wanted to do something different, unique and beyond my comfort zone to deepen my own yoga practice. I was very excited to join the yoga teacher training in 2019 as a special gift for me. I have done so much learning, training and studying but this was so very different – the variety of teachers, my fellow students and of course Julie’s energy, passion and expertise were truly phenomenal. I went on the training never intending to teach maybe integrate in my wellbeing and mental health work but I am now beyond excited to share it with the universe. A truly life changing experience. Thank you and deep gratitude to Julie, the team and of course the graduates of 2019.


“Julie Montagu's teacher training is world class with a thoughtful combination of her own boundless energy, top quality guest teachers, comprehensive manuals and Julie's WHOLE heart running through the framework of every lesson.

The course content is interesting and thorough with a respectful blend of eastern philosophy and western yoga culture. I did not know what to expect on signing up but I have been challenged physically, emotionally and intellectually with countless moments of tears and pure joy. I've grown exponentially as a person and most notably, the people that this course attracts are exceptional like-minded individuals, which says a lot for its creator.

I did not know it was possible to love yoga more than I already did, but after these 6 months, I just do!”

Much love, Loren

“The most amazing teacher training course that will change your life. Julie is so knowledgeable and inspiring.”

Becca Sullivan

“It is hard to put into words just how incredible this course has been. Not only has it given me the knowledge, skills and confidence to go out and teach, but also a new sense of self, life long friends and the inspiration I needed after many years trapped in cycles of burnout. Julie’s expertise and mentorship is invaluable, and the quality of guest teachers really sets this course apart! I can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you!”


The WholeSelf 200HR TT is one of the best things I have ever done. It is more than just learning the foundations of yoga and becoming a teacher. You learn so much about yourself, the person you want to be and are given the tools to help you become that person. It truly is a course about your whole self. You can see from day one the time, effort, energy and love that Julie has put into curating this course because it is so much more than just yoga teacher training. For anyone thinking about taking the leap, do it! You won’t regret it and if you are anything like me, you will wish that it never has to end.


“Proud graduate of Julie’s 200hr Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher training 2019. Yes, this training 100% prepares you with the skills, knowledge and tools needed to become a great teacher.

“But it’s way more than that, Julie and her wonder team of guest teachers deliver wisdom and courage enabling self reflection, processing and evolution. Evoking talents, tears, laughter and vulnerabilities to allow for growth in safe space filled with masses of good vibes, light and love!”


“It is not “just” a Yoga teacher training, this is a transformative experience where you will learn the basics of Yoga and so much more. You will feel part of a community of real and authentic people where everybody’s differences are celebrated and accepted. Julie and her whole team go above and beyond to make sure every student is making the best out of the course. I can’t recommend it enough! A truly incredible and formative experience.”
