Applying for the course
Deciding to undertake Yoga Teacher Training is a big commitment, and it’s important to choose a course that is right for you… which may or may not be East of England Yoga School.
Being a yoga teacher does not mean you have to be able to perform asana, or be a certain size or shape. It is your passion and desire to learn and develop your practice that is important.
We prefer that you have at least 2 to 3 years experience in practicing yoga, and a recommendation letter from your yoga teacher, if you have one. We do, however, treat everyone as an individual, and we understand that some people do not have the chance to attend classes or have a regular teacher, so please get in touch if you have any queries or concerns.
How to apply.
Applying for our course couldn’t be easier, Simply send us your deposit and submit an application form and then sit back and let us do the rest. Feel free to contact us for a chat or if you have any questions.

Please note you will be redirected to PayPal but you can still complete your payment using a debit/credit card if you do not have a PayPal account.

If possible, you are welcome to attend a class with either Brenda, Laurence or Ali, and have a chat in person. If you have any questions but are unable to attend a class, please contact us. We are here to help.
You are also welcome to attend a day on the current East of England Yoga School Training, which will give you more of an idea of what happens during training. Get in touch for dates.
