Recent Graduate Reviews

Some of our previous Yoga Teacher Trainees who have walked the journey with us sharing their reviews below: 

I loved my Yoga Teacher training course at the Yoga Healing Institute. Anthea and Claire did a wonderful job in grounding me in the spiritual, technical, business aspects of Yoga. I made great friends during the year, deeply expanded my knowledge of yoga and gained the confidence to become a yoga teacher. If you are thinking about becoming a yoga teacher, or just want to deepen your understanding of the core principles - I cannot recommend the course and institute enough.

The Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Healing Institute has been amazing! I have learned so much over the course of a year and have really enjoyed the entire pro-cess. Even when we had to change to online training because of covid, our teach-ers did everything possible to create a constructive and safe learning environment online. Anthea and Claire are wonderful teachers. They have supported me every step of the way and the way in which they shared their yoga knowledge and expe-rience has inspired me so much. I would definitely recommend their training if you are aspiring to become a yoga teacher!

I wanted to train to become a yoga teacher to help other people discover how helpful yoga can be for wellbeing. I had found doing a daily home practice transformational for my own mental and physical health. I was delighted to be accepted onto the Yoga Healing teacher training and a little worried as I did not see myself as an advanced yoga student in terms of physical agility. I immediately realised that a major focus for Yoga Healing is to make yoga accessible for everyone and that philosophy runs through the training, embracing trainee teachers who through increasing their awareness of their own physical and health limitations have been taught to teach authentically in an empathic inclusive way. I could never have imagined how rich the learning experience would be and very quickly realised I had only touched the very tip of a yoga iceberg before the training. The depth, and breadth of what we learnt was amazing, my own experience had been very much asana based. On the course we learnt all about asana and practiced daily, this was enhanced by the study of the foundations of yoga philosophy and history, the practice of mantra, mudra, pranayama and the exploration of anatomy and physiology. The teaching was brilliantly designed and delivered, building our learning at a manageable pace. I loved the way the chakra system provided a thematic structure for working on the different areas of the body and on the different layers of practice from body to spiritual. The teachers were fabulous, Anthea and Claire both have so much knowledge and experience to share and the difference in their style as teachers is a major asset to the course, giving us as students a wider experience and showing us how different teachers find an authentic way to teach as themselves. Undertaking the yoga teacher training during a pandemic has been a challenge but it has also been a life saver. The year of study was a fantastic journey of discovery on which I was so fortunate to have the amazing super adaptable Yoga Healing Teachers supporting me through some of the toughest days ever. One of the most profound changes for me has been the depth of confidence the course has given me in using my body and voice which as a drama therapist is incredibly helpful but also interesting that my other professional training had not provided this depth of embodiment.
