Annette Loudon shows great compassion and caring and her classes provide a wonderful healing and nurturing environment.
Matt Wierzbicki
Yoga teacher
"The depth of knowledge the GCYT teachers have is impressive. Not only for their personal experience and understanding of anatomy, psychology and spirituality but the way they connect with students and clients alike. Witnessing them demonstrate yoga therapy skills clearly showed how Yoga Therapy can be such a powerful tool for yoga therapists, teachers, physiotherapists and other health care professionals.”
Meredith Chapple

"The Yoga Therapy course was amazing…I didn’t expect to be challenged and grow as much as I did to be honest. I just thought I would “keep adding” but it went deeper. It made me look at my “inner self” a lot."
Penny Cook

Having completed the Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy, I have the knowledge to confidently treat people with a variety of presenting needs. The course offers a high level of wisdom and experience through the lecturers and an opportunity to share and learn from your peers and the lineages and traditions they have come from. Many thanks to Trina for helping to grow the Yoga Therapy community and its place in the Alternative Therapies community.
