The London Yoga Teacher Training is held at the West London Buddhist Centre. It’s a beautiful and tranquil space offering classes in Meditation and Buddhism, with a dedicated and aesthetic Yoga Studio. The Centre is committed to providing space for yoga and has invested in really good equipment. There is a spacious reception area to sit and relax. Downstairs is a library and two special rooms for meditation events. The whole centre is fully accessible with a lift, disabled shower and toilet. It’s easy to get to and close to tube (Paddington, Queensway and Royal Oak) and bus links.
The London TTC training was seriously good. I learned so much about alignment. As an Astanga practitioner I’ll have fewer injuries. The most profound thing that happened to me on the course was the change that happened in myself. It got into me deeply and transformed the way I am. I’ve changed the way I behave, how I react to situations and the way I deal with them. My mind is more controlled and I can get out of my daydream and focus on something else. I feel as if I have my life back.
The minute I stumbled across an advertisement for Heather’s course I knew it was the right one for me. Heather is a passionate, caring and truly inspirational teacher. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to study with her and the internationally renowned teachers she invited to join the faculty. The training was not just physically, intellectually and spiritually challenging. It was a life-transforming experience for me. I not only developed a solid personal practice but got a deep understanding of the science of Yoga and the necessary skills and confidence to share my knowledge with others. I will always feel grateful to Heather for her guidance, support and sharing her wisdom. -
Heather is wonderful, she’s honest and disciplined – devoted to yoga. Since graduating, she has continued to support us providing advice on how to sequence a series of classes and how to grow business idea’s into reality. She’s dedicated to her student’s success after the training- a true teacher.
The training was very well structured and all the workshops complimented each other to weaving together a deeper understanding of yoga. ... Yes we’ve got to look inwards on our yoga journey, but what is yoga all about? I have full respect for the way you teach with a non-dogmatic approach and true authentic wisdom. I didn’t want to do something wishy-washy, or LA style, and feel that this training has been really authentic. That is really difficult to achieve in the commercial world of yoga. The yoga you taught feels REAL. Consequently, I feel a lot more connected to myself and my own practice and know what I want to teach and how I want to teach.
The London TTC was incredibly well-organised, as well as being very challenging and enlightening. The time and logistics involved is really impressive. Every step of the way, you’ve put in so much effort and you really should be absolutely congratulated. A huge transformation has occurred in that I’ve always backed away when it came to doing things I thought were too difficult. I always had a marvelous excuse. So, it was true gift to be given the opportunity to practice with someone like Edward Clark. It was truly inspirational. My perceived limitations were tested over and over again, as well as shattered to pieces… I went into such new territory that it was really hard to know what I was supposed to grasp on. I simply stayed with my breath and trusted the process, shifting the fears and the belief that I couldn’t do things. These have been blown away and it’s incredibly empowering. I’m truly proud of what I’ve achieved. It’s been great to be taken meticulously through the different asanas, integrate them with the breath, and learn the adjustments. I love adjusting! I feel totally at ease with it. You taught us to tap into our own instincts. My practice has been completely stripped back and re-built from the ground up. And that is very confronting at times, in terms of changing my posture, the way I walk and sit – and think. That is the power of yoga. It changes your relationships and your life.
Yoga is so powerful. In only 8 weeks, our bodies have transformed and we are radiant versions of ourselves. The transformation is amazing. I’ve got to know myself better through the practice. As a result, I now feel that I have the skills to teach. I needed to work on my confidence to feel secure standing in front of a group of people and this training has helped me to get over my fear of being in the spotlight. I can’t believe that I feel confident to teach, but I do.
The London YTT was of exceptional quality, so well structured and professionally done. It’s been such a beautiful journey. We are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to study with such knowledgeable, inspiring and brilliant teachers!
