“… The course has taught me so much.. how to teach yoga effectively, and safely and to different people as well as an immense amount about the wider yoga practice…I never imagined the personal and physical change that I would discover and learn on this course, the dedication that I would practice and the passion I feel for teaching from my learning on the course. Through the combination of homework assignments, observations, assists, teaching practice and workshops. To quote from a book on our reading list; “the more I learned, the more I changed my mind, until, finally, clarity emerged” ( Erich Schiffmann)” Kate April 2018
” My friend asked me the other day how Im so ready to get going and i said its because I chose this course. Its given me the practical and functional skills that are needed in the ever developing and now competitive yoga world.This course has been an incredible journey that has offered me a fortune of knowledge and experience. As students we have been pushed and driven to achieve brilliant results. We have had the opportunity to explore yoga through various lenses and have broadened our knowledge and perceptions of the practice. I feel ready to teach and that is rewarding. ” Georgie April 2018
” I knew several amazing and inspiring teachers who had trained at the yoga space so I knew it would teach me how to teach well the yoga that I love. The course has been challenging in a good way. The more i learn the more I want to learn” Susie April 2018
