      An amazing experience!

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I came to do the teacher training course - I was worried that everyone would be "better" at yoga than me, know more about philosophy or that there would be a lot of work on the course but once we started all my worries fell away. The structure of the 6 week course gives you a bit more time to digest all of the information, but as with many things, it's entirely up to you how much you do. As Roshan our teacher told us, we were only getting the headings but the teaching style is very approachable and all the concepts are introduced in a way that relates to the life of the average person - very different from the yogic philosophy explanations that leave you wondering what is going on! All in all, most people get what they want to out of the course and I wouldn't (and don't!) hesitate to recommend it. I loved my stay at RYP - everyone who works here has an amazing heart and is always there and happy to help. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food is pretty good and the location is second to none for me. It's a quiet enough area that you're not in the midst of traveller traffic while a the same time close enough to a couple of other places to eat and also to the river. I'll definitely be returning!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My beautiful wife! Jupiter
