I have always wanted to train to be a teacher but never had the time before. I made the decision to quit my job and travel and get some qualifications that could lead me into a different employment direction. The teachers at Live Yoga really helped me gain the knowledge, confidence and expertise to go back and become a teacher. I loved every minute of it and found the experience extremely uplifting.
