balance Yoga Teaching Diploma

balance is at the forefront of yoga teaching, having trained many successful teachers now practising in Glasgow and beyond.

Course director and principal yoga teacher Gerry Kielty, BSc, MSc, has developed a thorough syllabus that sets the highest standards. Gerry teaches alongside specialists in anatomy, physiology and philosophy including Dr Alan MacInnes BSc (hons), DC, MMCA, Adam Auckburally BVSc CertVA Diplomate ECVAA MRCVS, Sheena Cadenhead MCSP SRP and Maureen Smith SRN HV.

As a balance graduate yoga teacher, I have no hesitation in highly recommending the balance yoga teacher training course. Gerry Kielty the course director and principal yoga teacher, together with the specialist teaching staff in the connected and complimentary disciplines, succeed in setting the highest teaching standards, in what is a best in class, if indeed, not world class, yoga teacher training environment, within a high quality teaching and practice facility at balance.


You will discover an open, friendly and tremendously supportive learning and development environment, creating the right balance of in-depth study, practice and theory, which will at the same time challenge and equip you, to develop and refine your own individual yoga teaching and personal practice, furthering your knowledge and understanding of yoga, as not only a physical discipline, but as science, art and philosophy.


If you are considering the course, I encourage you not to hesitate in beginning to discover your own personal insight and effective teaching skills potential - there is always more
