‘I’ve been lucky enough to experience both a retreat and the 200 hour teacher training with Sally. Both programmes were run with a great deal of professionalism and warmth, and the commitment and enthusiasm of all the teachers involved was second to none.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sally Parkes Yoga.’
