"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.



CYS has been running yoga teacher training courses in the South East of England, firstly in Windsor, Datchet and Eton in Berkshire and for the past ten years in Weybridge and Addlestone, Surrey.

Home practice and study may take up another 2 – 4 hours per week, with assignments to complete for each module.
