~ Ever Dreamt of¬† Doing Your Yoga Teacher Training ~
There are so many reasons why I am thankful to have found the path of yoga which led me to do my own yoga teacher training. It has shaped my life in so many ways. My relationship with my body, my relationship with others, my mental health, my career. I used to have a ‘job’ but I retired at 26, went to do my yoga teacher training and truly have never felt like I’ve worked a day since – despite my husband calling me a workaholic. I can truly honestly say Teaching Yoga is the most rewarding, amazing, heartfelt, joyous and at times terrifying experience.
And training to be a Yoga Teacher – well that’s a whole new level of personal development. Here are just a few awesome points about teaching yoga . . .
- You spend all your time barefoot & wearing leggings
- Your days are filled with the most wonderful people who you get to connect with on an honest, open & authentic level
- You become a part of the most amazing community filled with people who inspire you on a daily basis
- You get really good at doing yoga poses as you’re doing them all day every day
- You help people and get to make a real difference in people’s lives which is so rewarding
- You can fit it around another job, quit work all together to be your own self-employed Yoga Boss, or save it as a retirement project
- You are constantly learning and growing as a person and a teacher
If this sounds like something you need, then let me be your guide.

So What Can You Expect?
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course
01|Real World Teaching Experience
Many courses will teach you a lot of yoga, which yes you need! BUT you also need to learn, HOW TO TEACH. How to stand up in front of a group of students and guide them through a yoga experience that works for their body, calms their mind and uplifts their soul! How to use your voice, choose your words, place your hands; how to sequence, theme and break down asanas. Teaching yoga is both an art & a science and it takes practice. Each Sunday on this course the Trainee Teachers lead our Community Yoga Class to practise their skills on actual students in a real class environment. We get you teaching from Month 1!
02|Engaging & Educational¬†
There’s a lot to learn:
~ Asana, Pranayama & Meditation

Training to teach yoga is tough. The course asks for long hours over weekends, where you’re regularly asked to step outside of your comfort zone. Expectations are high and standards are higher BUT you have an amazing support crew from your fellow trainees, Laura’s entire community of students who turn up each Sunday for class, and an amazing Faculty of Teachers who all have your back and want to see the very best for you. This is a journey unlike no other and you’ll make friends for a lifetime.
This course focuses on giving you the skills to be the teacher you want to be. It’s not tied down to styles and specific lineages but will give you the confidence to teach yoga in the WAY YOU WANT and in a way that serves your community.
With a grounding start in Hatha Yoga, progressing through the more dynamic Vinyasa Yoga and then developing on to Yin Yoga and even some Chair Yoga.
