Hear from previous graduates of the training.......


I found the yoga teacher training a really rewarding experience. Lisa is a fantastic teacher, she is very knowledgeable, and teaches in a clear, calm and inclusive way. The balance between theory and practical was just right which allowed the learning to be embedded. I would recommend this course not only for your own personal journey which can be so enlightening, but also to be able to share the gift of yoga with others.

'I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to train with Lisa on her yoga teacher training course. The course itself was rich and detailed and I learned a huge amount about yoga practice, teaching, theory, anatomy, philosophy and history. The weekend with Amy during which we focused on history and philosophy was also absolutely fantastic, mind-opening and thought-provoking. Beyond the extensive learning, there are two main things I am equally grateful for and that made the experience of the course both unique and really special. The first was the opportunity to be guided by Lisa into a deeper practice through the longer yoga practices we had time and space for during the teacher training weekends. I gained a lot of strength in body and mind through those sessions! Secondly, the beautiful community that emerged through our training. Lisa has, I think, a real gift when it comes to holding space for communities to flourish. It was such a gift to train with such a supportive, kind and encouraging group of yogis. I made true friends during the course. I'm now teaching yoga both as part of my PhD research on yoga and in a separate weekly class in Exeter. I love it. It's also great to be able to carry on learning from Lisa by attending her weekly classes and regular retreats too. Lisa was endlessly supportive through the course and that support and encouragement has continued since the course ended last September too. Thank you so much Lisa! I'm looking forward to you running CPD courses in the future, I hope I'll be able to join!

Lisa is an exceptional yoga teacher, and will guide you through the 200 hour training with her incredible knowledge, energy, enthusiasm and warmth. Expect lots of physical movement and a dynamic practice combined with a challenging reading list and lots of fun along the way! 
Natalie 
 
Lisa is an inspiring teacher, and her teachings come straight from the heart. I cant believe how much we covered in just 200hrs! I think the best part was the amount of teaching practice we got to do, and I felt completely supported throughout. I definitely felt well prepared to start my own classes after the training and would highly recommend a teacher training with Lisa. 
Laura 
 
Highly recommended this Yoga Teacher Training if you want to deepen your yoga practice and knowledge of yoga. Its an experience you won't regret and one of the best things I have accomplished.

I was so pleased I did the teacher training with Lisa - she really inspired me to teach having been a student of hers for 20+ years. She is so knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. She practically holds your hand on the journey to becoming a teacher. I’m now teaching at her studio and have never been happier or more fulfilled. Jill. 

 
I have recently completed my 200hr YTT with Lisa at the Lotus Loft. It’s hard to put into words how wonderful this training was. The knowledge and experience of the teachers meant that we were able to cover a huge amount of content, creating a rich learning experience. We had opportunities to practice teaching throughout the training which helped to build confidence and apply what we had learnt. Lisa and the other teachers created such a warm and supportive environment, and I’ve loved becoming a part of the YTT community! I’d highly recommend this course to anyone looking to develop their knowledge and practice of yoga. 
Beth 
 
I feel so lucky to have been trained by Lisa. As well as being a beautiful person, Lisa's teaching style is incredible. Every move is broken down and explained, and cues are given to really understand every Asana in detail. I loved everything about the course; the relaxing atmosphere, the amazing people, the variety of gorgeous teas and all the yoga! I would definitely recommend the course to anyone who is wanting to teach yoga, and to anyone who wants a deeper understanding and practice of all that is yoga.
I've just started teaching my own classes and find myself bringing all that I learned from Lisa into them. I'm 100 % happy with all that I leaned from the teacher training.

About your teacher Lisa Roberts SYRT BSc Hons

 

Im delighted to be offering this teacher training after many years of attending teacher trainings, workshops, studying and teaching yoga. I continue to be inspired and learn from these practices and consider it to be a privilege and great gift to both be a teacher and to pass on the teachings.

I began my Yoga practice squashed between the sofa and a woodburner (excellent props) with a book i found in a charity shop in Falmouth. There were no Yoga studios at the time! I was fascinated, hooked and began to seek out teachers wherever i was. I was so fortunate to meet Bridget Woods Kramer when she opened a studio in Truro and began teacher training with her in 2004. I have been studying ever since with Bridget and many other great teachers. I have 20 years teaching experience and now teach regularly at my studio in Topsham and run retreats in Europe. 

In my past life before Yoga i studied psychology and global development. I also have a degree in Chinese Medicine and practise acupuncture. My husband and I opened Estuary Clinic, an integrated health clinic in 2013 and are passionate about helping people find good health and happiness.

Other teachers on the course

Amy Hughes                        

History and Philosophy 


SYT Yoga Alliance BSc Hons Literature BA Hons MA Philosophy

I began yoga with my mum over 20 years ago and it has been my tool kit for life’s challenges ever since. I began teaching as an Anusara Yoga Teacher – a Vinyasa style – under the close tutelage of Bridget Woods-Kramer (Triyoga, London) in 2005.

I became an Ashtanga practitioner in 2008 and am dedicated to daily practice of this method. I practice up to the fourth posture of fourth series. When my practice changed I studied and teacher trained with John Scott as an Ashtanga Teacher and continue to assist him when he is in the UK.

I am running evening Mysore at Meadowlark from Spring 2019 and teach on their teacher training programme. I am a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals.

My extensive trainings in two styles inform my teaching. Most regularly I teach Ashtanga Mysore and Led classes in the traditional method devised by Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

However, I still enjoy teaching vinyasa and power classes. These focus on traditional Hatha yoga postures and are well themed and sequenced, often around specific bio-mechanical alignment principles to help students to practice intelligently and pain free; cleansing their bodies, supporting their nervous and immune systems and quietening the mind, whilst building strength and flexibility.

I am part of a teacher training team at Meadowlark Yoga in Edinburgh and enjoy teaching yoga philosophy and the history of Modern Postural Yoga alongside the Asana, Pranayama and Meditation training.

Lisa and Amy began their journey as nervous new teachers together in Cornwall at Bridgets studio encouraging each other and love nothing more than to hang out and chat all things Yoga.
