“Hi there, my name is Siobhan and I’m doing a review for Elite pilates and yoga training,

I’m doing a review and testimonial if you like for Tanja and Paul Foy who are the directors and teachers of elite pilates and yoga training.

I’m choosing to do a yoga course, the date is November 2019, and I will graduate in march 2020 and I was an estate agent in a previous life and earlier this year I decided to stop a full-time job to create space in my life to allow for some positive personal change personal development and spiritual development

I personally been on a spiritual private individual path for many years really accelerated this year by allowing myself to have space to almost do nothing.

One morning 8 weeks ago I woke up really inspired not coming from a traditional yoga practice and I haven’t been to lots of classes and I haven’t done yoga training before and I’ve had a smattering of yoga class experiences probably in the last decade but nothing consistent so it wasn’t that I wanted to deepen and an already existing practice but I just felt inclined to do it I felt completely inspired to just explore that as opportunity.

I do kundalini it’s a kind of homegrown kundalini at home which is a very different practice but that has kept me in a spiritual path and also kept me sober as well. 

I’m in my 50’s and I was looking for change so wake4 up one morning and go on the internet and look in the southwest which is where I live south west of England, what yoga opportunities there are and I didn’t actually have to look that far just one stood out a mile for me and it was elite yoga and pilates training and I made an appointment made some contact with Tanja the director owners and one of the lead teachers and met with her and just had an extraordinary good feeling about the studio, about her, and about the course.

Yoga Testimonial continued…

I like the idea about the length of the course was 5 months.  I know you can go off and study yoga more intensively in a shorter period of time.  The way that I learn is slowly I’m a tortoise,. I’m not a hare and I love to create really strong foundations and this course is about creating really strong foundations.

It’s about being the best practitioner that you can possibly be so that you can help others better their practice and that to me is a really wholesome and positive intention behind the course.  It isn’t competitive it isn’t about being the biggest dynamic poses it isn’t about you know being superficial about it.

There are lots of lots of levels to the teachings so there’s the spiritual dimension there’s a historical and philosophical dimension that Paul, in particular, disseminates really well and you’re allowed to go as far and as deep as you want to which is really important.  Now I like going deep cause that’s the journey I was on before the yoga so my journey with yoga is a bit topsy turvy.  The yoga has come second to the spiritual development so I’m working principally on healing myself, my chakras, understanding the philosophy of yoga, understanding how that works with my own and current studies.  I’m a student of the course of miracles and it’s really powerful and empowering.

So there’s great emphasis on actually being a good teacher not just being a good student.  I really like the distinction that’s made. 

Tanja and Paul are funny and inclusive and generous and kind and loving and they embody what they teach and there would be a real dissonance and mismatch if they didn’t and I felt that energy and I felt that intention and I felt that kind of spirit within them it’s purely humankind of level, really really nice people who want people to do the best that they can do for them and then to go on and help other students.

So I really like that so far it’s identified some things in me that needed healing yoga is a really powerful tool,  it’s not just a physical fitness exercise you know there’s a lot of things going on obviously with the breathe as well as the postures and all the things that are you know linked with your understanding with mechanics of the body but also at the spiritual level as well and so I work with chakras and I really like that part of my journey cause it’s showing me areas I am willing and open to heal.

 

There’s willingness, there’s love, there’s open-heartedness, their’s fun, there’s inclusiveness, no competition the really nice thing is that Tanja meets you so there’s this mutual respect of let’s find out what we’re both like before we spend a lot of time together and in this environment together and just fabulous and it’s funny you know what’s not to like   funny deep interesting, educational heart-opening mind-opening increases your wellbeing and just a really delightful; place to be and as I say I particularly like the fact that there is a kind of protracted learning period so that you can really deepen the foundations for yourself because that’s really important to me as a potential teacher of yoga to have a foundation that is so strong that I know how to support others and develop their own foundation 

Yoga Testimonial Conclusion…

At the end of the day it is a solitary practice what happens , I say, stays on the mat and that’s between you, your inner self, and the mat and they really help create and environment where you can deepen and develop that relationship

 

So do it…if you’re thinking about it.. just bladdy do it!

Lots of love x

Maybe see you around

bye
