About Us

Founded in 2012, The Yoga and Pilates Academy was developed from years of yoga teaching experience. All our Tutors are senior teachers with at least 20 years’ experience both personally and practice level.

With respect for all paths of yoga lineages, the academy training will prepare you to teach safe, effective and inclusive yoga classes that meet the needs of 21st century participants.
From ancient spiritual texts through to the code of ethics along with health, safety and professionalism at work, the academy is dedicated to training professional yoga teachers.

Home study of anatomy and physiology, professionalism in the work place and common conditions (illness, pregnancy, injury) found in yoga classes replace the extended days of study (keeping costs and time factors down). 

The world needs yoga teachers now, and we believe people who have immersed themselves in the practice, can become wonderful teachers of the light of yoga within the 21st century modal of living. Face to face training, online content, home study, practical teaching assessment and self-discipline are all part of the training programme.

What Our Clients Say

“Last September I signed up to the Level 3 YMCA Awards Diploma in Teaching Yoga at Body Bliss/Yoga and Pilates Academy. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The teachers, videos and workshops guided me through the 500 learning hours. The course allowed me to deepen my knowledge on the Philosophy and Fundamentals of Yoga, and how to programme and develop a yoga session. Health and safety and understanding the Principles of Exercise, Fitness and Health as well as the Anatomy and Physiology of the body are integral in the course which I found so fascinating. Since the teaching training course I’ve also continued to keep a daily journal which helps me to grow in my yoga teaching. I am so grateful for the guidance and support of Body Bliss!”

“Adore this studio, re-started Pilates lessons after having children to find some level of fitness again and loved it so much I’m currently training to become a level 3 Pilates teacher here myself. The instructors that work here are lovely, it’s clean, professional and best of all really welcoming. Highly recommend anyone wanting to learn Pilates to give Body Bliss/Yoga and Pilates Academy a bash.”
