We are celebrating…
A brilliant set of exam successes this Summer!
As most of us know, it is no mean feat studying for and passing this exam. For the record, we’d just like to say that it’s no failure not to pass first time: it just means that some roads are a little longer than others. Those who were accepted onto the course in the first place, and entered into the exam were seen to have the potential to be teachers, and we look forward to supporting all our future teachers towards next year’s exam.
We can’t thank the wonderful Sheila Haswell enough for her incredible hard work and dedication in training this first Yogawest teacher training gang. Sheila has rushed up and down the M4 for many a long hard weekend at the yoga grindstone. Sheila should be very proud indeed of her outstanding pass rate this year; we are all in for a treat to have so many Sheila-trained teachers in the building.
A big thanks also to Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer who have loyally supported Sheila throughout the last 2 years, and continue to do so for the current teacher training group.
And a heartfelt thanks to the marvellous Yogawest students who indulged the trainees along their way with supportive comments in class.
Our new teachers
Joining the Yogawest team fresh from our first teacher training course this September are:
Andrew Lux, Lucy Payne, George Healy, Naomi Maggs and Joanna Lambe. Emma Pugh would have loved to take on a class, but lives too far away, so we hope she will cover classes here (or move to Bristol!). We are also pleased to welcome Harriet St Leger onto our team.
Look out for the new Autumn timetable to be published in August, with some newly created classes for our new teachers.
