The teachers on the Yoga therapy training are some of the best in their specialist fields and it has been an absolute pleasure to learn from these amazing teachers. They are supportive and helpful with every individual, every step of the way. They truly walk the talk and have so freely given as much knowledge as they could possibly fit into each module. Highly recommended!

“What an excellent trip to Kerala, India. A good balance of yoga, relaxation, fun, and excellent food and accommodation. The house boat cruise was the highlight, with its peaceful setting, refurbished accommodation and the delightful staff who looked after us so graciously. The beautiful resorts were an excellent backdrop for the yoga and a pleasant foil for the bus trips, jeep trip, markets and sightseeing."

Matt Wierzbicki
Yoga teacher
"The depth of knowledge the GCYT teachers have is impressive. Not only for their personal experience and understanding of anatomy, psychology and spirituality but the way they connect with students and clients. Witnessing them demonstrate yoga therapy skills clearly showed how Yoga Therapy can be a powerful tool for yoga therapists, physiotherapists and health care professionals.”
Meredith Chapple

"The Yoga Therapy course was amazing…I didn’t expect to be challenged and grow as much as I did to be honest. I just thought I would “keep adding” but it went deeper. It made me look at my “inner self” a lot."
Penny Cook

"I was continuously blown away by the way Annette (Loudon) educates. I always felt supported and guided. Annette's knowledge is astounding and I learnt so much. The perfect mix of tonnes of practice to consolidate learning, and peer-sharing to gain skills, knowledge and understanding. There was a lot of practice blended with the right amount of theory. Her module of the GCYT is simply awesome!"

After I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, I attended Yoga classes with Annette Loudon. My mobility and well-being improved. I would recommend Annette to anyone, particularly women on the journey to recovery from breast cancer.
Susan Forsyth
A genuine, comprehensive, well organised trip to Kerala, India. Our accommodation was wonderful. The food an absolute bounty of regional fare that exceeded expectations. The guides were courteous and knowledgeable. I had a taste of the 'real' India rather than hackneyed tourist sites. Special mention needs to be made of Sal Flynn who drew it together with enthusiasm, professionalism and good humour.
