I went along to The Yoga House studio in 2000 to do some yoga. I love the seasonality of the yoga – it gives you variety and challenges, as well as being holistic and healing. It wasn’t long before I decided to do the teacher training with COTY as I wanted to get a better understanding of the theory behind the yoga because it has changed my life for the better and has become my passion. I wanted to be the catalyst for others through teaching.

The course provided me with great personal development even if I didn’t want teach in the end. There was only encouragement and support to work towards teaching which, although I found terrifying in the beginning, has been one of the most rewarding things I have done and I have been teaching now for 17 years! The training is of a high standard and the support of the COTY community is awesome.
