What our Trainee Teachers say:

“Just to say thank you for a truly inspirational weekend of teaching with Ambra… I think we all went further in our practice than we imagined was possible. I also had several “light bulb” moments during the training… “ah, now THAT’S what I should be doing!” Very helpful and lovely atmosphere as ever. We’re a really great supportive group to each other and the feedback and facilitation from Michelle was spot on as always, thank you!” – Louise

“Teacher training at Sandstone has given me so much already! The course uses different teaching styles, and the guest teachers bring such different skills, knowledge and energy! The manual is so structured I know exactly what skills I need to develop in each module!”

“This course allows you to learn at your own pace in a non-competitive environment. You are exposed to a range of styles of teaching and to different types of yoga but without any pressure to follow a particular style. I have made new friends, got a new perspective on life and am being challenged mentally and physically – but without any pressure and amongst people that want me to succeed. This course is simply life changing.” – Katie
