Meridian Yoga Teacher Training

Our Yoga Course offers unique Teacher Training and is available in Hastings and Norwich. Vanda Scaravelli inspired an approach to Yoga that encourages you to 'undo the doing'.

Whatever your experience of Yoga may be, we can support you to use gravity and the wave of the breath to 'awaken' your spine, your body, your mind and your spirit. 

Attention to the breath, to the connection to the ground, to alignment of the spine and flow of energy in the body, all resonate throughout the art and science of both Yoga and Shiatsu.

The Shiatsu College has been teaching these arts for over 30 years and we can provide you with the tools to teach your own Yoga. At the same time, you will learn Yoga according to the philosophy of Scaravelli, explore the meridian system and it's relationship to Yoga and discover the latest developments in the understanding of human energetics
