yoga teacher training

Emily Young Yoga Professional Development programs are designed to produce confident yoga teachers trained in the traditions and history of classical yoga and grown though learner centred, appropriate functional movement; informed by contemporary research and exercise science.

We strive to open the doors to yoga in any setting and to any body.

We believe in a community of practice, formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning, in a shared domain of human endeavour.

We function in an informed, qualified and professional quality assured environment.

We strive to instill the qualities of self-discipline, respect, and awareness to each one of our students by emphasizing the importance of following the yamas (social code) and niyamas (personal code), the practices of pranayama, meditation, and asana, and the study of philosophy.

Teaching Yoga is beautiful and rewarding gift, however at times navigating the business side of yoga can be a little less enjoyable for some. From the early morning commutes, to the rat race of teaching studio classes, the juggling between admin time and dealing with the consumable woes of social media, teaching yoga in the 21st century is tough, and it’s even harder when you’re doing it alone.

Join Michael James Wong, UK & USA Senior Yoga Teacher, TLC Teacher, Teacher Training Facilitator, Founder of Sunday School Yoga, one the largest yoga teachers community in the UK, BOYS OF YOGA and Just Breathe, as we discuss the wider topic of The Business Of Yoga, and share tips, techniques and advice to navigating teaching in the 21st century.

As a teacher, Michael travels extensively as an international facilitator leading weekend workshops & teacher trainings, in 2018 Michael’s teaching schedule included in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Dubai, Zurich, Stockholm, Goteborg, Munich, Berlin, Bulgaria, Italy, Frankfurt, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Bali with 2 × 200hr Teacher Trainings, 4 × 50hr Advanced Trainings, countless events, yoga festivals, wellness panels and more.
