Feedback from the course:

“An opportunity to go deeper into personal practice and to learn more about every aspect of yoga. I’m loving it and welcome the chance to develop my practice in the company of other yogis. Highly recommended.”

“I have loved this course. It’s been fascinating learning the history of Yoga. It has also been special to spend time being so expertly supported in the philosophy of yoga and how this is integrated into modern life. Thanks.”

“I am incredibly grateful for the profound experience of the Yoga Foundation course. Under the guidance of instructors, Sophie and Chloe, with their vast knowledge, experience and compassion, I have been gently led through the many layers of yoga practice and philosophy. With a course blending asana, pranayama, mindfulness, historical and philosophical teachings, I have been able to discover a deeper connection with my mind, body and spirit. I can whole heartedly recommend this course for anyone on their yoga journey, looking to deepen their understanding and yoga practice and cultivate a greater sense of awareness and wellbeing. Thank you.”
