Yoga Teachers Forum

Welcome to Yoga Teachers Forum, We invite you to join us as you continue your yoga teaching journey. This yoga community welcomes you wherever you have trained. Yoga teachers from across the yoga community provide CPD and professional training with us. All of our teachers have chosen to teach yoga because we have a passion to share practices that have offered us and our communities the support we have needed in challenging times. It is our intention to create a yoga family so that all teachers feel nurtured as we continue on our yoga journey to support others.

"I loved this course! Jenni was very knowledgeable and everything was clearly presented, it was a great mixture of the theory, homework and self reflection. I feel very confident to go and teach people with cancer specifically or adapt my classes to suit someone with cancer or recovering from cancer.  Thank you so much, it’s been yoga career changing" - Katie Arscott, Cancer Training Course Graduate

"I not only learned about Cancer and all that goes with it, I also learned a lot about me and how to self care as a teacher" -  Suzie Povey, Cancer Training Course Graduate
