Once you have trained with us you will be all set to launch your own business - however, if you wish to receive on-going support & mentoring from us to help you on your way, you can sign up to become part of the LushTums teachers community.

Existing yoga teachers (and pregnancy and postnatal teachers) wishing to have a refresher course, join us for a top up CPD or join the LushTums teachers community are welcome to get in touch.

Unlike many training schools, we will not teach you set sequences, specific class plans or posture scripts to repeat and regurgitate. Instead we teach to a much more in-depth level, so you can be creative and respond to specific student’s needs and anatomy with confidence, in each class, every time - making your classes bespoke and tailored and authentic every time.

I loved having varying styles of yoga to learn from and it’s good to break it all down to put it all back together again. My main take away has been learning to teach (and live) from my heart - thank you Clare and thank you LushTums!

My style is my style. I am enough! Thank you
