This unique teacher training, held in Hastings and Norwich, supports your exploration of the principles of ‘effortless effort’, relaxation and mindful movement which thread through Scaravelli inspired Yoga, Shiatsu basics and Qigong essentials. We offer decades of expertise in teacher training and professional development to help you towards your goal of teaching yoga in a course that inspires creativity, independence and confidence.

You are encouraged to be as creative as you can to fulfil the course requirements; videos, audios, blog posts, participation in discussions, presentations and teaching assignments are all part of our assessment methods. There are no end of module or course exams, assessment is ongoing and supportive. We value self reflection and personal investigation above all else.

We are an Independent Yoga Network recognised school, created and run by Yoga, Dance and Energy Work teachers of The Shiatsu College. We are now a British Wheel of Yoga Accredited Training Organisation (ATO).  As a student you become a member of BWY (fees for this are part of your course fees). Students who qualify via an ATO will become BWY accredited teachers, benefiting from a market-leading insurance policy and many other benefits of BWY tutor membership including the quarterly magazine, Spectrum, Congress, training days and discounts on yoga equipment and free entry to the Om Yoga Shows. On graduation you may also choose to join the IYN – a highly recommended association working tirelessly to keep Yoga free and independent.  You can also join The Register of Exercise Professionals.

You are also able to enrol as a student or graduate onto a Government recognised Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, delivered by The Shiatsu College. In the field of Yoga Teacher Training, this is a unique opportunity to gain a teaching qualification in the Regulated Qualification Framework  (RQF).

Bronwen De Klerk’s assignment on the Heart Meridian. Bronwen is a former student and now a visiting teacher on the course.


‘I knew virtually nothing about meridians and energy work before this course. Studying Meridian Yoga has really helped me gain an understanding and bring it into my practise and teaching. The course is run in a way that is non pressurised so that you can work at your own pace, and I love the way the classes are set up so that you get ideas and inspiration for teaching from everyone, not just the teachers’
