Ashtanga & Yin Teacher Training Course at Bristol School of Yoga

I have been teaching teacher training programs in London, Bristol and Goa for nearly ten years. It’s the aspect of my teaching that inspires me the most – I love the intensity and transformative fire of teacher trainings. I love going deeper into every aspect of the practice. I love to see the students find their voice and confidence and start to blossom as teachers.

“The percentage of trainees who go on to teach within 3 months is higher than any other course we have researched. 85% of Bristol School of Yoga trainees teach within 3 months, the norm is 58% teach within 6 months" - Laura Gilmore, BSY Director
