What our learners have to say

The small class sizes online really helped with the learning process, it helped us bond as a group and support each other. Before the course, I wasn’t confident with my yoga teaching skills, but the YMCA yoga qualification really helped me to break through these barriers and pursue my future yoga career.

It's been amazing! I've not had to travel to Bristol and I live 2 hours away. It's been very relaxed, everyone has been lovely and the fear initially is taken away because its virtual so it's a bit less scary. I feel like I have learnt a lot and I feel confident moving forward - I can't recommend it enough!
