"Having attended many of Kathryn and Nikkis classes for 5+ years I knew it was the only yoga teacher training programme that I wanted to do in Cork. The training was everything I expected and so much more. It was challenging, thought provoking and hard work but above all it was transformative on both a physical and mental/emotional level. It really was an amazing journey and the experience and knowledge that Kathryn and Nikki brought to table was boundless. Entering this training I thought yoga was just about the physical practice but the training opens your mind to so much more, the philosophy and lineage of yoga is fascinating and you leave hungry for more! And last but definitely not least the other 14 students were friendly, fun and supportive and many strong friendships were formed. "

"I came to the Yoga Alliance 200hr teacher training course with a background in the fitness/sports business. Over the last 17 years I've trained with many sports bodies and wanted to learn more about yoga.
I can honestly say this course has been the best one I've done! The knowledge of the trainers is outstanding, the love they have for Yoga is contagious and inspiring. All aspects of yoga is covered in detail and areas which I didn't expect to interest me became the ones I was most hungry to learn more about. There were times when it was challenging but there was always support from the trainers and other class members.
I could not recommend this course more highly and I will continue to attend Kathryns and Nikki's classes/workshops to gain more knowledge."

"I looked at a number of teacher training courses before settling on this one, but decided to study with Bodhi because of Kathryn and Nikki's fantastic teaching reputations, and the convenience of the year long programme structure.
I was delighted to find that this is a very robust and comprehensive course, with a strong emphasis placed on building teaching skills, right from day one. The importance of giving detailed direction and adjustment was stressed throughout, giving me a lot of confidence when it came to instructing and leading my own classes.
Significant focus is also placed on the history and practice of meditation and mindfulness, and I loved making space in my life for my new found love of this practice over the year. That's truly a gift I'll carry with me for the rest of my life.
The pacing of the course, one weekend a month, made it was easier to manage with a full time job than a one month training, but also allowed us to integrate what we learned on each weekend into our own practices before meeting again. It was also great to have a support network to check in with each month. I'll definitely miss the group, but I'm excited to see what steps we all take next."

"I have made the most beautiful friends , met the most amazing people, all working, moving, sharing, learning, growing together. In the most beautiful space, (yoga loft truly is magic) guided and nurtured by fantastic teachers .
Kathryn, Nikki, Charlie and Lorna, a perfect blend of the sharing of Yoga, pranayama, meditation, mantra, history, philosophy, anatomy and physiology. I thoroughly enjoyed EVERY single topic we covered, along with the snippets of ayurveda, pregnancy yoga, restorative yoga etc.
All positive, I enjoyed every single weekend. However, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a challenge at times , but the personal growth this course has given me both on and off my mat has been huge .
Especially off my mat. I’m calmer, happier, healthier and everything is much clearer now. I decided to partake in teacher training because I knew I wanted to teach but I’d fully recommend the teacher training even if one was just looking to expand their practice and learn more."
Kellymarie, Teacher Training 2018
"My original aim for the Yogaloft Teacher Training course was just to deepen my yoga practice, but I have learned so much more from this comprehensive course. Kathryn and Nikki are outstanding and generous teachers and have been supportive and encouraging throughout my training. I would highly recommend them and this course not only to aspiring teachers but anyone looking to expand their knowledge of Yoga."

"Doing the Teacher Training course with Kathryn & Nikki has been a life changing experience. They are both skilful, humble, and passionate about yoga. They teach from personal experience and are excited to show the way. What they will teach you will help you go deeper into your yoga, not just during the course, but beyond. I would highly recommend this course."
