Our mission is to support and grow inclusive teachers of yoga to meet the needs of our community in all settings. In an overwhelming market of teacher education programs, (often uncertified or quality assured) and with 15 years of teacher education behind us, we feel confident we select the content and the providers who offer a truly professional training. We are sharing workshops at no cost where we can. At times we will charge to secure some fantastic international tutors coming to the North West. Do give us feedback on the provision and let us know of any requests.
FREE WORKSHOPS – FOR TEACHERS, by INVITE ONLY.
Places are limited, but if we are oversubscribed in venues we may move to a large venue near by – so keep an eye on your emails.

Rediscover the foundation of movement starting from the ground up! This workshop will bring new awareness to the feet, ankles, knees and hips through various means of joint preparation and mobilisation. We’ll wake up the hamstrings and glutes to transform standing postures and examine the relationship between pelvis and spine to keep the lower back pain-free. Expect to walk away with a sense of support from your legs that is altogether grounding and liberating. As a strength and mobility specialist, Cecily helps her students rediscover their potential for strong, balanced movement both on and off the mat.
UPPER BODY EXPLORATIONS

Learn how to move with strength, awareness and precision in this in-depth exploration of upper body strength and stability.

Students will leave with a renewed appreciation for what their bodies are capable of and with tools and confidence to pursue new movement goals like push-ups and handstands.
