About CYS Classical Yoga School

CYS is a Yoga Alliance® accredited Registered Yoga School (RYS® 200) allowing graduate teachers to teach worldwide with their Certificate CYS/Yoga Alliance.

CYS Yoga Teacher Training is synonymous with high standards and is known as a centre for excellence in yoga teaching.

Students coming out of the school with a CYS Yoga Alliance® Certificate will be seen to represent the above standards and should expect to finish their training confident, happy and ready to pass on their understanding and experience of yoga to their students.

Yoga is a lifetime’s study and this course is a sound, year-long foundation to deepen your practice and launch your career, while acquiring the wisdom to recognise new openings and pathways for learning as they occur over the years – which they will.

“The journey the course takes you on is stimulating and highly motivational and is more than a ‘yoga teaching course’. I left every weekend feeling refreshed, energised and excited about my new career as a Yoga Teacher. If you are serious about your own personal development and abilities as a yoga teacher THIS IS the course."

Learn to Teach

"Each year I am encouraged and hugely inspired by the essays/written assignments that our excellent students submit during their year’s course. The world needs more really good yoga teachers as we can help such a lot in our communities’ promoting the science of good health and wellbeing through yoga practice."

June Mitchell, Principal, CYS Teacher Training

The following words may seem unrealistic but I think you will find that yoga practitioners and teachers of many years experience will say that ultimately they are true. Yoga is a life skill that, with regular practice, brings a life-long healthy mind/body balance.

The practice of Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation is learning to control the body and the senses so the inner light may come forth. This is the natural outcome of a good practice - that we will gradually learn to control the mind and eventually come to experience the very support of it.

 

The yogic idea of happiness is different from what is usually thought. It’s not a passing reaction to something positive, it’s more like a state where you are in touch with your place of stillness and balance.  It can give us inner resources to deal with life’s ups and downs and help us to retain a state of clarity, focus and contentment.
