Welcome To CYS Yoga Teacher Training

Both courses have now commenced for this year so I am sorry if you are reading this and have missed the start.    We begin to receive enquiries in the autumn before the next year's start in September and I am now taking applications for the 2015 intakes.   The dates for the Sept 2015 - August 2016 courses will be on the website at the beginning of November.  

Each year we invite prospective students for a light vegetarian lunch and a chance to meet the tutors and current teacher trainees.  The first dates for this are -  

Edinburgh, 1st November; Weybridge, 15th November;  

Dunkeld 29th November;  Weybridge 13th December

Please email me if you are interested in coming along
