"Online Yoga 1:1 mentoring"
Possibly the most valuable time I have ever spent on myself. Actually, THE most valuable! Doing the 1:1 mentoring over the last year has allowed me to develop not just the yoga skills I was expecting and the teachings listed on the website, but also to understand myself on a deeper level. When I signed up to the YTT, I had no idea it would take me on a journey of my OWN self-discovery. Tandy is a wonderful teacher, and able to guide in just the right way and also at a pace that suited me. Not only has Tandy got such depth of knowledge in Yoga, she is kind, thoughtful, and easy to talk to. I would recommend this course to literally everyone who has practiced the physical aspect of yoga and wants to expand their knowledge in the true meaning of yoga. Tandy has also built on my strengths and I am confident to start teaching

"An exceptional YTT course steeped in skill and knowledge "
This was my second YTT and this experience was so far superior to my previous teachings. Tandy’s knowledge is exceptional and her approach to teaching yoga philosophy will profoundly change you as a person and deepen your self awareness which is turn enhances your skill and knowledge as a teacher. Tandy’s extensive experience as a yoga teacher means that she is able to provide a highly specialist approach to postures and understanding the body especially in respect of chronic pain. Tandy’s personality is warm and nurturing and individual approach that she takes to teaching which enables the student to focus on their strengths and develop an awareness of all areas of their conscious and subconscious functioning really does set this YTT course apart. This all takes place is an idyllic setting in the French countryside with Tandy offering the most wonderful of personally tailored food.

"The most amazing journey ... to become a yoga teacher"
This teacher training was the most inspiring training I could have ever imagined. Tandy ist such an amazing teacher trainer, who shares her vast experience with so much authenticity and generosity that she was a great model and inspiration for me as a "beginning" teacher.
I was also quite amazed and impressed by the rich material this training includes: The course material (required reading) and the online and “retreat”-modules about these books and all the other subjects are so well prepared, intense and well chosen that they do not only offer a lot of important information, but also many occasions to reflect and integrate the studies emotionally and spiritually for your own path as a yogi and teacher. Tandy also offers much space and time for dialogue – not only during the retreat, but also during the months before and after in online mentoring, so constantly, I had the opportunity to reflect on my own yoga experience, my “personality” and the requirements to develop. Thus, I could experience the importance of yogic “self-study”.
A part from this, this YTT offers a great accomodation, a beautiful place to relax during the "study breaks" and Tandy prepares the most delicous and healthy food... It was just a divine experience and I am so thankful that this training offered all this, so I had the best "environment" to develop and find my way to become a responsible, inspired and heart-centered yoga teacher.
From my heart, thank you so much Tandy!

"Incredible teacher and mentor!"
This course highly exceeded any expectations I ever had for any Yoga Teacher Training course. There was lots of online coursework with constant discussion questions through email and Skype calls directly with Tandy to deepen your learning of each module. The week retreat portion was fantastic, a week in beautiful rural France with delicious home cooked food prepared for you for every meal. A week of full days of discussion and practical work with refreshing walks in the countryside.
The absolute best thing about this course is that you have this incredibly knowledgeable and passionate teacher’s full attention to answer and discuss in depth anything you need more information on or feel unprepared for. You will leave this course feeling completely prepared and knowledgeable to teach various level yoga students including pre-natal, post-natal and students suffering from chronic pain due to previous injury. Tandy also provides continued support after the course in business and marketing which is invaluable for students wanting to start up their yoga business. The best teacher training experience I could have ever dreamed of!

"My dream teacher training course "
I really felt that Tandy saw me, and where I am at this moment of my life, regarding my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional practice of yoga, as she encouraged me gently but firmly to pursue my path. It is possible to have very deep spiritual conversations with her, just as much as it is possible to have concrete, fruitful, fact-packed exchanges about anatomy, physiology and teaching techniques. I got proper hands-on teaching experience and also personal guided asana practice. I got to participate in her classes and observe her teaching. I also got a lot of reading material and felt positively challenged in my beliefs. Tandy listens in a focused way, and there is plenty of room for discussions and debates. I was also very happy about the delicious vegetarian food she prepared for me, and enjoyed our more casual chatting over meals and walks as well. Tandy is very good at maintaining a professional teacher/student relationship, whilst at the same time making one feel humanely welcome and at ease.
