I found a new level of self-confidence and I started teaching the lessons straightway in my online yoga clubs and they were so much more fun and engaging.

What is your current role or position?

Yoga & Wellness Educator for Family Learning

What do yoga and mindfulness mean to you? 

This timeless practice has given me strength and solace in times of need, which embraces the power of your inner guide.

What sparked your interest in Yoga Ed.? 

I was searching for a CPD course at the start of Covid-19 when I lost my job and then came across Yoga Ed. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect! This course gave me something to look forward to and a sense of hope for my future in lockdown.

Which Yoga Ed. course(s) did you complete, and when did you complete?

I completed the full RCYT training in October 2020 and I am currently doing the Chair Yoga Practices course.

What is your biggest takeaway from the course or program? What knowledge, insights, or skills did you gain? 

The whole training was very thorough. I loved the structured curriculum, brain based learning, pedagogy and how to manage the behaviour of teens. For me observing how yoga is taught to the different age groups was also beneficial – how to engage them in discussion and weave Yoga Philosophy for young people was inspirational! The Trauma Informed course was fascinating and it encouraged me to study further in this subject area. All the trainers were very supportive, genuine and positive and this is what makes Yoga Ed. is so unique in their approach.

How have you implemented the program in your life? Have you received any feedback about the course from your students? 

For me, I have definitely learned how to become more self-compassionate and forgiving of myself. I found a new level of self-confidence and I started teaching the lessons straightway in my online yoga clubs and they were so much more fun and engaging. As I had an accessible ‘Yoga Tool Belt’ I was able to tune into what my students needed even in the online space.

Would you recommend this course or program to others? 

Yes, absolutely; just go for it! The self-paced learning is very flexible, it fits in with your job and other responsibilities.
