What our students say…

I’ve learnt 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

An incredible journey

“My friend asked me the other day how I’m so ready to get going and I said it’s because I chose this course. It’s 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

Much needed confidence boost!

” I found the course really engaging as I was able to experiment with my creative side and develop some sequences of my own. Some worked, some didn’t! But being able to put these ideas forward and then teach a sequence which I felt was built with intention and purpose gave my confidence a much needed boost”
