We have two onsite chefs who will cook three nutritious meals a day. It's an absolute highlight of this retreat! Indulge in the most delicious wholesome food and look forward to a celebratory final night dinner. Vegetarians, vegans and non-vegetarians are all catered for as well as any dietary requirements.
While you will be practising yoga a lot during the retreat, there is still free time to explore local walks, get a massage, relax in the hot tub or swim in the indoor pool. This retreat also includes two very special evening activities with a Sound Bath and Kirtan evening. You will also receive your first aid training and a workshop on supporting pregnant students in class.
One of the truly special things about Laura Green’s Yoga Teacher Training Programme is that it features brilliant support and guidance from other expert teachers as well as Laura’s community of yoga students who attend the Sunday classes.
While the majority of your classes will come from Laura, you will also learn from:
Gemma is our anatomy guru. She is highly experienced with an exceptional knowledge of anatomy education, both through theory and practical learning. Gemma is also a yoga teacher; there’s no one better to teach you how to bring anatomy and yoga into the same space.
Lauren is our meditation and mindfulness teacher; a calming, creative soul who is passionate about bringing joy and tranquillity to the world.
Lauren will also be guiding you through the subject of mental health for yoga teachers.
Danielle is our branding and marketing expert. She works with purpose-driven entrepreneurs and health professionals from around the world, teaching them how to stand out online with authentic and strategic marketing; and now, she’s going to teach that to you too.
I’m Laura and I'm a full-time yoga teacher in Southampton, UK. I'm a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals and a Yoga Elder with Independent Yoga Network. I have been running my business offering yoga classes, retreats, a 200hr teacher training and teacher mentorship programme for over a decade. I started teaching yoga simply for the love of it alongside my regular job, but soon my classes were well enough attended that I was able to quit the 9-5 and become a full-time yoga teacher: I’ve never looked back.
I am proud to say I have changed many people's lives while also making a very comfortable income which allows me to follow my dream of building my own wellness home deep in the Hampshire countryside.
There is nothing I love more than watching a passionate yogi move from student to teacher. It is one of my greatest joys in life. I hope to meet you on this journey soon.
Yoga teacher training is a major time and financial investment. It is important that you consider whether this is right for you. To get the most out of yoga teacher training, you will need to throw your mind, body and soul into it. But - if you do - it will be the one of the best investments you can make for your future.
