“The Yoga that changes You, as you move through the Seasons 

I finished my teacher training with these two lovely ladies, Julie and Nicola, this year and what a fantastic experience myself and the other students received. They are both so knowledgeable and extremely positive. Made learning a pleasure. Originally was taught in a face to face setting until lockdown made this impossible and we moved over to online learning which was new for everyone but this worked really well.

Julie and Nicola (and guest teachers) are very knowledgeable and lovely teachers. I just finished my 200hr course with them this year and a absolutely love it. There was an abundance of information on the seasons, all limbs of yoga, the history, Chinese medicine and so much more. Worth every penny, not only if you're planning to become a teacher but also perfect if you wish to widen your yoga knowledge. It had been great to have a small group so you can get to know each other and the teachers and have this lovely support system.

I highly recommend the Seasonal Yoga Teaching Training course with Julie and Nicola . Their in-depth knowledge, kind and gentle teaching methods enable you to really understand yoga - not just as a physical practice but on physiological and philosophical levels as well. The course is extremely well structured and balanced covering all aspects of yoga. Personally it has changed my life for the better. I would highly recommend the course whether you enjoy yoga and would like to do further study or go the whole way and teach. I have no doubt that you will love the course and love studying with Julie and Nicola.

Yoga is for everyone! One of the best decision I have made was to join the Stirling Yoga Teacher Training 19/20. Since day one it helped me goes through a very hard (mental) moments. You learn to deal with high and lows, help with confidence, help you with resilience. Yoga  is much more than only stretching classes. I highly recommend SYTT, Julie and Nicola lead you through a wonderful journey during the course.

I completed the 200hr teacher training with Julie and Nicola. They are a wonderful duo who are caring, patient, encouraging and full of knowledge. It is a full on year with plenty of practice and theory to keep you occupied. It is also a year of personal growth and great experiences. I also got to share the time with a great group of fellow student teachers. I would recommend learning from Julie and Nicola if you are thinking about becoming a teacher, or just want to further your knowledge of Yoga.
