Our Training

Down to Earth

East of England Yoga School is a hands-on, down-to-earth Yoga Teacher Training Centre that brings together the diverse experience of our tutors, to offer a ‘multi-style’ course that will allow you to experience different yoga styles and ideas, and find your niche as a confident, professional yoga teacher.

Professional Tutoring

East of England Yoga School is registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK (YAP), which assures you are receiving high quality and professional tutoring. Laurence is a Senior Yoga Teacher with YAP, and together with the other course teachers, Brenda and Ali, we have over 12 000 hours teaching yoga – so plenty of experience that we willingly share with you.

From the Heart

Laurence took over the course from Brenda in 2019 and directs and leads the courses, bringing together his diverse skillsets to create courses that focus on educating and empowering our students, sharing his knowledge, passion and skills to inspire the next generation of yoga teachers.

Since 2007

We have been training students since 2007, originally as ChillOut Yoga Teacher Training (CYTT) run by Brenda -first in Scotland and then in Suffolk. To date we have introduced over 90 people to the world of yoga teaching: some trained to further their own practice, most have gone on to teach amazing and diverse classes, some have opened yoga studios and run retreats.

Why Train with Us

Our Multi Style Training is Personalised For You

Being a yoga teacher is not about how flexible you are, your size, your beliefs, your age, legging design or how ‘perfect’ you look in an asana.

The yoga you enjoy practicing is a personal choice, and at East of England Yoga School, we encourage you to develop your own individual and unique approach of teaching, in a ‘style’ that resonates with you.

Your focus may be meditation and mantra or Vinyasa; Chair Yoga or Restorative; perhaps bringing aspects of western movement and body work into your classes… or a combination of different styles.

Our Experienced Teachers Are Here For You

Between Laurence, Brenda, and Ali, we have over 12 000 hours of teaching yoga.

Our commitment to small group sizes means that you get dedicated guidance and instruction, so you don’t become a cardboard cut-out yoga teacher. We assist and guide you on your teaching path, giving you the tools, knowledge and practice for you to develop your own style and find your own voice. You will become the confident, individual and effective professional yoga teacher that you want to be.

Your Practice Will Never be The Same

Our courses are a wonderful opportunity to delve into yourself: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually – a potentially life changing experience. As you open doors to new experiences, we are there for support and mentoring.

We motivate you to explore, develop, deepen and refine your personal practice, so you will teach safely from your own knowledge and experience.

We are Affiliated with Yoga Alliance UK

This means you can rest assured that our course has met high standards & has all requirements for Yoga Alliance UK registered training, For more info about what being part of the Yoga Alliance means, see our Accreditation Page.

And Also...

There are no hidden costs or extras with East of England Yoga School.

Even though we offer CPD, teacher get-togethers and post-graduation support, we do not lock you in to do your further CPD trainings with us. We understand that there may be other trainings and workshops that you may want to attend on specific topics according to your interests and teaching path, so we encourage you attend these as your CPD.
