200HR Yoga Teacher Training Testimonial:

I wanted to say thank you, Sally, for such a wonderful training program.
Before I embarked on this journey I had no personal direction and my life has always been about survival, work – giving everything I have to others and really not getting any nurturing or self development back.
Your training has changed my life around. I have retrained in something completely different, something I didn’t think was ever possible and have discovered a new and wonderful world I didn’t really knew existed, and a subject that I find so interesting I have such a thirst to continue my learning and self expansion.
The first yoga lesson I went to, was not quite two years previously, and here I am nearly ready to teach my own class, I can’t quite believe it.
I think you are an inspiration. Thank you for your wisdom, guidance, humour & support, and I really look forward to seeing you the future.

Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Testimonial:

The quality of what you teach, Sally, in your pregnancy yoga teacher training, is far above and beyond anything which I have encountered before.
I honestly feel very, very grateful to have had the opportunity to train with & learn from you, and I’m looking forward to starting my own classes in the next few months.
With much love and appreciation.

Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training Testimonial:

I loved this course! 

I’d already completed postnatal yoga training but found that once I was actually teaching classes, my clients’ experiences were so much broader and so frequently involved much more complexity than I felt confident addressing. 

I love that now I am able to offer the proper 1-2-1 support & care, taking into account all that the client has been through and addressing it all with the attention they need.
