What some of our graduate teachers are saying

I cannot recommend Sam Rao’s yoga school enough. I qualified in 2018 and am now living the dream as a full time yoga teacher. From day one Sam encouraged me out of my shell in the kindest possible way, I can get extremely anxious speaking to a crowd, but the fact that we taught students from the very start helped me build the confidence to teach a public class. I now run 11 classes a week and use everything I learnt at the school every day in my teaching. Sam takes the time to get to know his students, you are not a number at the school, he really cares that you develop into the best yoga teacher you can possibly be and his passion for yoga only fuels your passion as a student even more. Without Sam and the school I am not sure where I would be right now, if anyone is considering joining his school I would say GO FOR IT, I promise you won’t regret it.

David, Graduate, 2018

Having researched a number of yoga schools, I chose Sam’s because it felt professional yet human. An in-depth curriculum, a clear outline as to what was to be studied and a brilliant, knowledgable and inspiring senior teacher, (who so many people had recommended). I was invited to spend a day at the school, stepping into the shoes of a student, gaining hands-on experience as to what the training would be like. I got the opportunity to speak first-hand to other students – join in the lectures and training, fully immersed in the experience. The course itself was filled with solid content, a vital understanding of anatomy, philosophy and importantly, hands-on practical application and real life feedback. I highly recommend.

Jaquie, Graduate, 2016

I began my teacher training with Sam back in 2016, and each training weekend became the highlight of every month. Sam is not just a yoga teacher, he is yoga, and the wisdom and knowledge that he embodies is beyond value. I doubted myself several times in the course due to my lack of belief in myself, and I felt even if i managed to complete the course that I may never actually teach. But Sam believed in me. He supported me and encouraged me, being everything I needed when I needed it most. With his help, I learned more than just about yoga. I learned how to believe in myself, how to find my confidence and find my voice. My whole life had changed, and I started teaching in July 2016, eventually qualifying mid 2017. By august 2017 I was a full time yoga teacher, now running 7 classes a week, along with courses and workshops. I have been invited to teach at festivals and special events, even teaching on a central London international business rooftop overlooking Saint Pauls Cathedral!
