Qualifications and Professional Development

In the UK there are currently no requirements for yoga teachers to complete any sort of formal qualification and/or continuing professional development (ongoing education). The discussions around this topic are very nuanced, and it is outwith the intention for this page to say which opinions are right or wrong.

Irrespective of that, due to my love of yoga as well as my desire to be a safe, inspiring, and empowering yoga teacher, I am a voracious learner – the below may illustrate as much – it shows what CPD I’ve completed since I became a yoga teacher; omitted from these lists are the books, articles, and journals I’ve read, the discussions I’ve had, and practices I’ve completed.

I don’t know it all, and I never will – but that doesn’t stop me from always being interested and wanting to learn more.
