“…Be prepared for total transformation… you will be embarking on a journey of self discovery…It has been said ‘you teach best, that which you need to know yourself’’…Your best preparation for learning to teach is to make yoga a living experience, not just a weekly occurrence…If you don’t know which asana to begin with then simply stand or sit on you mat and breathe—thoughts will settle, movement will come…”

Sheila Coombes – Tutor & Assessor

“Studying with FRYOG for my foundation year was stretching, engaging and enriching. I have been well supported by a wise & inspiring tutor & my yoga studies remain an important part of my personal growth in all areas of my life – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I am excited about applying it in my own life and in teaching others. The journey continues…”
“I spent considerable time seeking the right course, and met two different teachers before Sheila. I knew straight away that she was the right person to guide me through my next steps in yoga…I always look forward to our monthly workshops and come away feeling enthused & refreshed”
“Having decided to become a Teacher I was recommended to FRYOG. I could not have chosen better, the course hooked me from the start! Amanda instilled confidence in us all, which helped us to grow as we progressed. Having successfully completed the course I am now introducing others from all walks of life, to the benefits of Yoga!”
