Comments from our previous group of Trainee Teachers:
Training as an Iyengar Yoga Teacher is hard work, fun, frustrating at times, but very, very worthwhile. I have gained so much personally from my training, and absolutely love teaching yoga! – Caroline Anschütz
During my training I have not only improved my own yoga practice, but have experienced a transformation in terms of how and why I practice yoga. In no small part this has been a result of Frances’s wonderful, and extremely thorough, teaching, coupled with the insight and generous sharing of my fellow trainees – Stuart Bolton
I started to think about teacher training hoping that it would improve my yoga, which it certainly has! Doing the course has made me introduce a regular home practice, and I am looking forward to passing on and sharing what I have learnt over the last two and a half years. – Lorraine Bonete
Yoga teacher training for me has been a liberating, spiritual journey, embracing changes within. I now feel physically, mentally and spiritually strong, and happy to be on this wonderful path. – Anita Turner
I started the teacher training because I wanted to improve my yoga and also personal practice. The course itself was always challenging but made enjoyable by Frances; she always prepared us well for both the written assignments and teaching assessments. – Liz Whelan
All 6 of us trainee teachers passed our 2011 assessments with flying colours. This is a tribute to Frances Homewood who taught me to hone my observational and communication skills. She laid out all the aspects of the art of good teaching for me, it was an incredible gift and invaluable learning opportunity for which I will ever remain grateful. – Sharada Rao
