“I have taken part in my initial yoga teacher training with Sally and have just completed pregnancy yoga teacher training with her too. Sally is a wonderful teacher, very grounded, friendly and informative and manages to make the information fun and easy to learn and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her if you are considering a path or continuous professional development as a yoga teacher.”

Jenny, 2015

“I loved this teacher training. It provided me with skills and knowledge I need to teach a pregnant woman with confidence! I really enjoyed every minute of it!”

Alison, Dubai 2014

“I chose this course because I liked the idea of being able to immerse myself in the training. I ended up loving the course even more than I thought possible. This was one of the best trainings I have done and I would strongly recommend it to others. I feel hugely grateful to Sally for making it such a wonderful experience.”

Pem, Dubai 2014

“Having recently completed my Yoga TT with Sally, it really was a no-brainer to continue with her to do my Pregnancy TT. Sally is a wonderful teacher, patient, experienced and so much knowledge to share with her students. We all have the utmost respect for her as she takes time with everyone. I can’t wait to get started!”
