Role: Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance Certified)and Yoga Teacher Trainer
Background: I naturally fell in to yoga as a means if injury rehabilitation due to persistent knee problems resulting from 20 years of practising and teaching karate. Since I began practising yoga regularly in 2004, I’ve had no injuries or problems with my knees as yoga has really sorted me out. Like many people when I first tried a yoga class in a gym, I thought it was just about stretching exercises. It’s amazing to see the difference yoga can make to a person’s health and happiness after just a few weeks of practise. When teaching, I like the atmosphere to be fun, focused and calming as leaving a class with a relaxed and happy mind is the perfect result. Please feel free to ask me any questions which come to mind.
Hobbies & Interests: Karate, travelling, surfing, meditation and camping!. One of my favourite things to do is: Camping with my family in Wales and being on holiday.
"My name Lee Burns and I was a student at the YogaHub for 3 years and loved every moment of it. All the staff are so friendly and the teacher's are amazing. I found my yoga really improving so the next step of my yoga journey was to become a yoga teacher. I was guided through the intense teacher training course by Banyan Tree school of yoga teacher training by Stuart and Frank. The course was great and I learned so much and gained a wealth of experience and knowledge to become a yoga teacher. I also met fellow yogis on the course who I still keep in touch with. I have now been teaching yoga for over 4 years now and would highly recommend Banyan Tree school of yoga to any budding yoga teacher. Thanks so much to all the teachers and guest teachers for helping me through my journey in becoming a Yoga teacher especially Stu and Frank."
I would highly recommend the teacher training course at yoga hub, all of the teachers are highly knowledgeable and each bring different aspects to the course which is great. Stu and Frank offer lots of support to everyone and always make the time to have a chat and offer guidance and encouragement when it is needed. The continued support which I have had since my training at yoga hub has finished has been really great and I know if I need it then words of advice will always be given. If you are looking to expand your knowledge of yoga or want to go into teaching then this is a really great course to begin your journey. The training I received has given me the confidence to go out and teach what I love and I am really happy that I chose yoga hub to do my 200 hours teacher training,
I trained with the Banyan Tree School of Yoga in 2016. Very thorough and professional delivery. Very experienced teachers. The knowledge and experience from the course provided me with a platform from which I could go out to teach. When I started the course, I was already an experienced and qualified teacher, but not in yoga. Doing something I was not fluent/confident with was a massive challenge - but I think I am the better for. The course gave me a new perspective on yoga and life acceptance. I currently teach adapted yoga and wellbeing to adults with disabilities and isolated older learners. My learners like the fact that I can explain why I adapt asanas for them - knowledge I gained from the course. Thank you.Debs
Before I embarked on my teacher training, I had lots of concerns about not being ready. From the outset however, all of the teachers set me at ease and throughout the course gave an incredible level of support and guidance. The balance between their input and the need for me to take responsibility for my own learning and teaching style meant that by the end of the course, I felt confident in my ability to teach. There was so much more to the course than learning to teach yoga though - it was literally life changing for me and I got to spend many weekends with an amazing group of yogis and teachers.
