What our students say…

Intelligently Structured…

” Teaching Yoga is not responsibility free. Students come to classes with varied physical and spiritual needs and a teacher must be prepared to respond. This is what this training provides. The years of experience that Nichi holds in teaching yoga and training teachers transpires into the sessions. The training is intelligently structured to ensure prospective students are taught safely. Do this training and learn how to teach yoga the right way. “

Florian 2022

Developed Confidence….

” I have loved this course. Nichi has become a real mentor for me during this training. I feel stronger than ever in my own practice and have developed the confidence and understanding around a huge range of aspects of yoga. I couldn’t recommend this training enough.”

Nora 2022

“It’s given me the practical and functional skills that are needed in the ever developing and now competitive yoga world. 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– Director of Soma-Wellness

Challenging + Rewarding…

” Teacher Training with Yoga Space has delivered so much on so many levels. It has been inspiring, challenging, emotional and rewarding. This has been a journey of self-discovery on every level. Nichi has the innate ability to tune into each of her student’s needs… I have gained so much more body awareness and my practice is stronger….I started out on this journey just to develop my own practice but I now have the confidence and experience to go out and teach. I am being asked to teach by studios and other teachers. Thank you Nichi, Sarah and my training group. It has been an absolute joy.”
