A experiential and inspirational journey that will deepen your understanding of all aspects of Yoga and help you develop a wise and meaningful personal Yoga practice. The course is BWY certified and provides a comprehensive and invaluable preparation for those who intend to go on to train as Yoga teachers.

TESTIMONIALS (2015 Foundation Course)
Thank you for your teaching which has been both fascinating and inspiring. I have learnt so much and it has secured my decision and helped me find the confidence to commit to becoming a yoga teacher.
I really enjoyed this course and I cannot see how it could have ben more effective. I particularly liked the delivery of the philosophy and the amazing meditations lead by Liz. I found the course to be an overall inspiration in terms of my personal practice and to study further. Many thanks to Liz an amazing teacher!
A fascinating and eye-opening course with a very experienced and knowledgeable tutor and lovely group. It has opened a window onto the magnitude and power of Yoga. Every Sunday has been a special time to ground myself and think more clearly. I’ve learnt a lot. Liz has facilitated an excellent and thorough Foundation Course.
Liz approached the course in a great way, giving a very organic rounded understanding of yoga using a variety of methods, which meant it was an extremely powerful experience.
