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.
