200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Weston-super-Mare: Meet the tutors

Our 200 hour Yoga teacher Training Takes place in-person in Weston-super-Mare. For almost two decades, we have been building relationships with highly-experienced, dedicated and heart-led teachers who are experts in their field of yoga study. I have hand-picked each of these very special guest teachers, many of whom I have been working with for over a decade and all of whom I trust to deliver the very best in their field. Well, I'll start with myself because it would be strange to leave me out.

Sarena is a highly experienced teacher who teaches with warmth and clarity.

Tim Chalice - Introduction to Kirtan

Tim Chalice has been leading Kirtan in and around Bristol and North Somerset for many years. I personally have been attending his kirtan since 2008 and there is noone quite like him. Based in Bristol, he comes to Weston-supre-Mare to lead this unique workshop designed especially for our 200 hour trainees.

His workshop on our 200 hour teacher training is a tour through Tim's heartfelt music and his relationship with spirituality, song and chant. He demystifies the practice of kirtan and explains the meaning of the sanskrit words used in the chants and the background to each one. Participants are invited to raise their voices in song with him and his hamonium. It's an uplifting and inspiring afternoon.

Haze teaches chair yoga and gentle yoga classes around Weston-super-Mare as well as teaching on our 200 hour yoga training programme. In her all-day workshop, she explains how we can adapt the practices of yoga for those with even very limited mobility and invites the trainees to create yoga sequences with limitations in mind.

She always gets wonderful feedback for these sessions and inspires a lot of teachers to go and teach chair and gentle yoga.

Ali, sound healer and gong practitioner, teaches from a place of deep commitment to practice and inner work.

Each year she travels from her home in Cornwall to join the teacher training group on retreat where she teaches a training on using sound in the yoga space, including singing bowls, drums, voice and gongs. She brings lots of instruments to play with!

Jenny is the newest addition to our teaching team. Jenny is a Franklin method somatics educator and coach, and has trained with Gabor Maté in compassionate inquiry.
