Simon Low - Yoga Teacher in Chichester

Ongoing Teacher TrainingIntroduction


The Yoga Academy was founded in 2003 by Simon Low, BWY & E-RYT500, and has since established itself as one of the world's leading yoga teacher training schools and study centres.


The Yoga Academy offers foundational teacher training courses with British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance (US) 200-hour certification as well as study immersions and ongoing training up to the Yoga Alliance (US) 500-hour level.


The Yoga Academy faculty of leading UK and international teachers is renowned around the world for its breadth and depth of experience. Attracting British and international students, our courses are for teachers, trainee teachers, students wishing to become teachers and for those who wish to significantly deepen their knowledge, practice or teaching of informed, safe and effective Hatha and Classical Yoga, meditation and other specified forms of yoga and related subjects.


Our 2-year residential teacher training course in the UK starts annually, usually in November. We also run residential 1-month intensive teacher training courses. For the past four years, the 1-month intensive teacher training has been held on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand.


Our training events in the UK are held at Commonwork in the heart of beautiful British countryside near Sevenoaks in Kent, which is easily reached by train from Charing Cross and other main line stations in central London. For international students, Gatwick airport is only a 40-minute taxi ride away.


Simon Low and other Yoga Academy faculty teachers offer additional yoga training workshops and immersion events around the world throughout the year in many of the major cities in the Far East and Europe.


All teacher training events with Simon Low are recognized as British Wheel of Yoga IST and CPD credits.
