A School of Yoga and Mystical Arts dedicated to the cultivation and preservation of Natural Law and Sacred Wisdom.

“Drawing from authentic lineages dating into the past to a timeless age, KotE was established for one core purpose: put people back in touch with their true essence and therefore restore balance and harmony to the cosmos.” 

Grant Ifflander

Founder and Lead Trainer

… founded to help answer these three main questions:

• What does it mean to be a good human being?

• What actions must I take to leave this world a better place?

• How can I live in alignment with Nature?

What we do…

We provide higher education through immersions & teacher trainings which initiate people into the deeply transformative and life-enhancing teachings of traditional Hatha Yoga, the Classical Yoga of Patanjali, and Tantra.

Our programs & teachers are approved & registered via Yoga Alliance, so KotE graduates become accredited through the largest standardizing association of Yoga in the world and can go on to teach in schools, classrooms, and studios all across the globe.


These practices & teachings have really changed my life and given me strength, direction and purpose to do all that I am meant to be doing.


The best word I can use to describe the transformative process I’ve been through with these teachings is ‘magical’


Deeply rooted wisdom that lands right in the Heart. I love the casual  approach while diving deep and delivering teachings that expand my life.


Authentic Teachings

Experience Yoga as it was designed…

Yoga is a spiritual science dating back thousands of years, designed to completely transform the practitioner. At Keepers of the Earth, our teachings are based on scriptural study and modern research to help us understand the mechanics of real spiritual transformation. Beyond simply “posture training” and flexibility, we are working with the very fabric of our being.

Our trainings and immersions are a chance to reconnect to the essence of Yoga and the authentic teachings that emerge from this ancient wisdom tradition.

HEART-BASED Methodology

Find your center and engage with the world from this place

Do you feel like many of the spiritual systems that you’ve observed or studied have something in common? At KotE, we feel that there is a common thread amongst most, if not all, forms of spirituality. We believe that they all boil down to the Heart, the very center and essence of our being. It is the seat of our intuition, our inner knowing of what is right and wrong and how we should live our lives.

We want to ignite the heart-center and fuel it with our practices and teachings until it becomes a blazing inferno, from which we get to share our authentic light with the world.


Connect to the guiding and harmonious forces of the cosmos

Behind all spirituality, and beyond all reason, intellect & logic is the natural order of the cosmos. Everything that exists is following a particular pattern. You and I are a part of this Great Pattern. Our ancient ancestors knew this. We call it the “Universe” for a reason – there is ONE song: the Uni-Verse. All that we do is meant to help us come into resonance with and harmony with the greater environment.

We believe in practicing and living in such a way that our entire life becomes like a well-tuned instrument of this divine orchestra.
