A comprehensive and professional course that has managed to capture a real personal feel to it. I am enjoying every moment! I think the course is suitable for a real range of people - our group consists of experienced teachers through to people that just wish to expand their knowledge and enjoyment of Yoga. Every weekend is like going on a retreat to recharge!' (Roberta Sutherland)'

The course that Steve runs is well organised with a good balance of academic and practical work. It also includes a teaching practice every other month, which for me is invaluable as I came to the course with no teaching experience at all. Steve is very supportive and eager to hear our views on different aspects of the course and its' guest lectures. So far I have found the course very enjoyable, I have already learnt so much more about yoga and it's practice.' (Jo Boltt)

'Enjoyable, fascinating, multi-dimensional! Steve, Olivia and the rest of the tutors have put together an excellent course, which covers all aspects of teaching yoga in a comprehensive, interesting and fun way. Our teaching practice is blossoming under Steve's caring and capable tutorage.' (Connie Chapman)
