I’ve just returned from your enlightening, entertaining and mind blowing IST Training Day at the Endsleigh Centre in Hull!

Thanks for a really educational , participative and uplifting session, which I never would have thought would apply to a training day on anatomy and the nervous system!  It would be lovely if you could come back soon to teach us a yoga class in your particularly  ‘nerve- friendly’ style!

Testimonials on the Cervical and Thoracic Spine training
I came away from your workshop totally inspired. I wrote, and am now using a five week plan. The difference in students has been amazing: many were unaware of the three parts of the spine and how they were designed to move. I can now 'see' in their postures that their understanding has improved and developed.  A big thank you!
'Thank you for a really great day. It made me rethink so much about my teaching and also made me realise how little I understand about anatomy. You are an inspiration'.
'I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I have to say it flew by and it's not often you find yourself saying that about training days! Your knowledge and sense of humour made it more memorable, for a novice like me. I was grateful for the opportunity and the chance to learn more.'
You certainly gave us plenty to think about today. I loved your no-nonsense, down-to-earth approach'.
The workshop really brought my attention the extent of the impact our daily habits have on the spine and posture and greatly incseased my awareness my own posture and habits that affect it.

I absolutely loved the practical stuff we covered during the workshop and I have already incorporated some of the postures into my home practice and into my teaching
.

'Fantastic! Best workshop I have ever attended and really informative. Delivered at a great pace, honestly and confidently.'
'Always fun learning with you'.
'Oh Les, so informative my brain is hurting!'
'Using us as 'guinea pigs' is a brilliant way to learn'.
