I have been teaching for a long time in all types of yoga and feel like I have found the missing piece of the jigsaw. I really enjoyed the mindfulness aspect of the course. Also the different bodies, bone structures and how this may affect an individuals ability to be at ease in postures. An old friend recommended the course and it was a very good recommendation. Thank you, Sarah. Thank you very much.
The demonstrations were really helpful to understand different body types. I loved the exercises we do in groups it really helped me to develop relationships with the other people on the course. Exactly what I needed right now, it has been hugely grounding and inspiring so thank you. I look forward to level 2.
Really good demonstrations with different body types this reaffirmed how crucial props are. The experience of the physical postures and meditations helped me to gain a deeper understanding to help me be a better teacher. The pace of the course really added to my experience I look forward to learning more about the Chinese meridians, the mind and soft tissues. Thank you, Sarah and your team
The explanation of the meridians really worked for me. The flow of the days was done well to help get the knowledge into my head. It was great to get some practical experience in groups to see different body types and put techniques into practice. I loved the meditations and structure of the course. The encouragement to rest and enjoy the space was greatly appreciated. The past four days have been an eye-opening experience. Loved it all.
I found the small practical groups very helpful with understanding different body shapes/types and different use of props to give a wonderful yin experience very beneficial. I loved the opportunity to stop to use the time for introspection in a gentle, kind and compassionate way. The pace of the course was wonderful to help me understand the topics fully. Thank you. I loved it
Enjoyed learning the connections between the organs and meridians, how that benefits the physical body. Small group teaching was really helpful to get more experience verbalising but not intimidating either. The mindfulness meditation and breathing every day was really grounding and a useful tip for teaching. Many variations and adjustments for all body types including areas that may need extra attention. Thank you.
Sarah, You delivered such a complex subject with such ease and creativity. I never felt bored and only more inspired. Everything you said was very thought provoking and touched me to my core. Your calm presence is amazing. I have learnt from you how to be caring with clear boundaries. Your teaching methods were unique and the way the whole course was aligned and structured was so wonderful and insightful, very much like a retreat. Thank you so much! Jemima
“Absolutely magical, loved so many aspects!” You were so compassionate and really nurtured everyone’s needs. I loved the mindfulness meditation practices centred everyone and gave me tranquillity in the hustle and bustle of London. The whole course was carefully thought out and you were very didactic with your explanations, handouts and answered questions thoughtfully. I am fascinated visualizations and it reminded me of the power they have. Thank you so much Sarah, it has been a wonderful course. Sarah
I really have not felt like this in a long time so thank you for holding space for us and for creating a wonderful program. This training felt extremely intimate and a safe space and haven. I loved all the mindfulness practices. It’s been an honour to share space and energy with you. Thank you so much again. Salma
I enjoyed the structure of the training, it was well designed to hold my interest and very informative as well. I am grateful for the care and time provided to rest, to learn without pressure, I think I learnt way more and managed to incorporate the teachings more deeply. Thank you for the meditations I normally can’t sit for 12mins but enjoyed the deepness of the themes. Appreciate your guidance. Anonymous
I found the combination of mindfulness, meridian theory, anatomy and Yin practice made this a really well rounded course. I appreciated all the moment of sharing, this helped me to check in with how I was feeling and felt more connected to people in the room. Thank you for your teachings, wisdom, dedication, consideration and care. Lizzie
I’ve really enjoyed the variety on the course. I feel more confident to teach. The schedule of the day was great, really appreciated the later start time and long lunch. Sarah, I love your gentle nature and how you share your experiences. Can’t wait for level two. Thank you Lauren
I really enjoyed the space to express our own self, to enquire within. Sharing helped to build confidence. The rhythm/timing of the day was perfect. Your approach to Yin yoga is and feels very safe. Anonymous
Amazing transformational. Loved the mindfulness and your shared experience. The days never felt pressured and the environment and students always felt “held”. Thank you Informative yet restful four days. Really pleasurable experience, very well paced. The combination of yin and mindfulness worked perfectly together. I feel confident to teach Yin with many resources to draw from. Erika
I really enjoyed the mindfulness aspect of the course and how it was thought from a basic breath awareness to the “ labelling ”of feelings. I have got to know Yin on a deeper level and feel confident enough to lead my students with support. Sheila
Transformative, shifting, releasing, time to process and loved the flow of the day. Healing and enlightening process. Compassion, support, holistic and informative. A truly life changing experience. Anonymous
Meditation more achievable, enjoyable and rewarding than when I’ve tried it at home. Has given me confidence to take forward. I’m now feeling really excited to incorporate Yin into my Yoga teaching and sharing with my students. I got a strong foundation of what Yin yoga is about, how the pose is really meant to feel and a strong understanding of the emotional qualities of poses along with them in relation to the meridians. This will all help me to emphasis with my students more. I found the anatomy interesting, particularly the Femur/ Hip variations. Anonymous
I loved the emphasis on mindfulness and the time spent on different meditations. Demonstrations on breathing techniques was also really helpful. Anonymous
This course opened up feelings of curiosity about the way I currently teach and given me the confidence to use different techniques to give each student a unique experience. Most powerful point I have taken is to celebrate the uniqueness in each of us. Thank you Sam
So for me... i did my first workshop literally a few days after level 2 and everyone loved it - feedback was great and for some people has been quite transformational. I've also started to do weekly Yin classes and i really do appreciate the knowledge i have taken from you and your courses. The students are loving all the detail i am giving and actually feel they are learning about their own bodies and how they can 'fix' issues! Thank you so much for such an insightful 4 days of teachings, learning and exploration in London in Feb. I found your approach to yin and sharing its breath of options, both on a physical and otherwise level, very open, inclusive and compassionate. I have referred back to my notes often and feel subtle changes to my own practices which are immensely beneficial. I also very much enjoyed the Enneagram and hope it is an element you will bring to other training's as I think it was successful in creating thought-provoking discussions and ideas. I was delighted to receive my certificate and it was a little (and much needed) "pause" button on life generally to sit and just be. In a sense, it reminded me of what we had learned and discussed on the training and, with life in XXXX being a whole new world of sights, smells, sounds, thoughts and feelings, I think I needed a gentle reminder that home and stability amongst (albeit exciting) uncertainty, is most certainly within. Your feedback was also very much appreciated and taken on-board as I plan yin classes for a retreat I am teaching on in August. Thank you for taking the time to share your insights.
Thank you once again for all you shared during the course, the most recent and the previous one. I’ve learnt so very much from you. I admire your skilful way of directing students into deep self exploration, while at the same time gracefully holding the space. If the possibility arises, I’d love to assist in your level two training in March next year. I’m especially interested in level two, Rebecca - 2018 Levels 1 & 2
Sarah Lo is a diligent and dedicated practitioner who considers possibilities. She continues to examine her practice and her teaching in ways that are consistent with growth and transformation. I happily recommend her and what she does to all students looking for a yoga that is grounded by insight and informed by practice. Norman Blair March 2018
Nice to feel new dimensions growing into my teaching style so quickly after a training xx
I just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed the yin course. Very well put together, the week flowed seamlessly like a well thought out yin class 😁. I can’t attend the advanced course this summer but hope to join you in the Spring. Last night I taught my Tuesday class and enjoyed dripping in more detailed information about the meridians in a way I’d not previously felt confident nor inspired to do. Xx.
“…..not to go on about it but thank you again for a really effective and skillfully delivered course. You mentioned on the first day when we discussed what Yoga means to us that yoga is a privilege and that really hit me. This week certainly felt like a great privilege. Take care xx" Roya, Mindfulness Teacher May 2018
you hold such an incredible space, so people feel completely supported and can let go of all this stuff they've been carrying around. I really got that from the first TT, was quite overwhelmed with how much was released. Was such a beautiful week, didn't want to leave haha!
Thank you for the yin training last month. I absolutely loved it! I can’t tell you what a great week I had and what an improvement to my overall happiness it gave me. I am already thinking about completing the level 2 with you in July. Class of May 2018
Firstly I’d like to thank you for such a wonderful Yin training. Everything about how it was presented was amazing. I really appreciated how gentle you were especially after previous experience trainings I find they can tend to be very heavy and aggressive. I've taken so much from the course and totally thrown myself in study. Thank you.
What a fantastic 4 days I had on your Level 1 Training last week. I did not want the week to end and have been buzzing with enthusiasm for Yin (and life in general) ever since. Thank you for creating such a welcoming and nurturing environment for learning about so much more than theory and postures. The use of meditation, mindfulness, music, poetry, partner work etc has given me a lot to think about and a real emotional boost. Thank you for all the time and energy you invested in this course to make it flow so effortlessly and harmoniously. I am now eager to deepen my own practice and share this joy with others. I feel very blessed to have been a part of these magical few days and can’t wait to join you on further training.
It’s still hard for me to put into words the amazing experience I had last week with you and your teachings! On a personal level, something definitely changed inside me, and I feel so much better! Thank you so so much! I also realized how the practice of Yin yoga makes so much sense for me and for my body and the huge potential it has to help people connect to themselves and to their bodies! So I am really excited to teach it! As I told you I would really like to have you as my mentor and I will explain why so that you can assess whether it’s something along the lines of how you do mentoring. Rita - Class of May 2018
