Yoga Teacher Training

I'm very pleased to offer Yoga Teacher Training, from September 2025. This will be the British Wheel of Yoga, Ofqual regulated, Level 4, Diploma Course, 500 hrs - the highest available in the UK. You can read more about the BWY and the course here:


BWY recommends completion of a Foundation Course first, so if you're keen, please do look at the Foundation Course I offer (Sep - March). This is a really great way to take your own yoga deeper, get a good grounding and be sure of your decision, whilst setting the Foundations for the Teacher Training course itself.


I am really keen to actively encourage student teachers from a variety of backgrounds and specialisms, so if you have niche, or are keen to work with a particular student group, please get in touch.
