Esme - I can't describe Di at this moment but what a fantastic lady you have on your team. She should be a guru or something. Amazing amazing lady don't lose her. Am still in awe. THANK YOU to both of you. Am honoured to have met her.

- I would like to stress again, how good I thought the Unit 2 notes were, I used them as a revision guide. and spent 4 days memorising the Unit 2 notes which was more than adequate, everything I needed to know was in my head! I think that by sharing my experience with you, you can reassure other candidates that if they read and learn their notes and make sure they know them inside out, they will be fine, they don't really need anything else.  I had bought all the books suggested on the reading list and read around the subject on my own and had a look at the online app, etc. I preferred to revise from the notes, they were more than adequate as preparation for the exam. You had reassured us that by learning what was in the Unit we would have the tools to pass but they were more than that, I found them really interesting and as you know one of the reasons I wanted to study this yoga course was to further my knowledge of human anatomy so that I can be a better teacher so in short, as I said before, excellent job, excellent course.

Di Having attended Jayne's courses, workshops and masterclasses, and used her educational DVD's and material, I can honestly say that she is one of those stimulating, unique, fascinating individuals whose thoughts, motivations and actions are forever moving forwards; forever wanting the best, removing the blinkers and being prepared to open heart and mind to the possibility of new horizons, greater authenticity, and deeper understanding. In so doing she offers us the opportunity to develop and flourish as fitness professionals, and indeed as thinking, moving, feeling human beings. Further more she has helped both myself and many others to explore and improve upon what we say, what we do, our skill set, how we approach our work, how and what we learn, and our potential to look around and see what we can really achieve. I have, very recently, once again, had the benefit of Jayne's expertise in being the training provider I chose to complete my L3 Yoga qualification. I thought that perhaps I wasn't ready, wasn't capable, wasn't deeply entrenched enough, wasn't fully versed enough to tackle 'Yoga' ... but Jayne taught me to strip away the layers of doubt and embrace all that was truly wonderful, physical, energising and, yes, do-able, about Yoga. This journey is ongoing (aren't all the best) but the catalyst is Jayne.
 

Jane I was having a conversation with a friend of mine about yoga. She has been to yoga classes in the past (not mine) and I was telling her about the L3 yoga I'm doing at the moment. She was surprised that it was so short as she thought to be a proper yoga instructor required many years of study (possibly involving buddhists and temples!) and was questioning how I could call myself a yoga instructor on a par with those who had studied for a long time. I asked her about the classes she had been to and her experiences of them. She explained that they were very good and the instructors had great voices and spoke with a certain level of deference about the movements carried out and were very "into" it. I questioned her further - did she still go? No. Why not? Because she didn't really "get" the whole thing it seemed very mystical and everything had long foreign names that didn't mean anything to her and she didn't understand why she was being told to breathe at certain points - and most importantly to me, she didn't understand what she was doing and WHY and the benefit(s) of it. Why did she go a a yoga class in the first place? She had been told she needed to stretch more and wanted to enjoy the relaxation and sense of calm she was told yoga would bring, but she wasn't aware of what she was working or stretching and was too stressed out about not understanding any of it to enjoy the relaxation part of the class. So I tried to explain why years of yoga training at the Mystical Rising of the Sun School of Yoga didn't necessarily automatically produce a good yoga instructor, and why, if she came to my class it would be a whole different experience.... I bring to the table experience of being a group exercise instructor and trying to succinctly direct people to arrange parts of their body in a particular way. I bring experience as a Personal Trainer in being able to subtley focus on one person needing more direction or support. And to do all of this in an enjoyable fun way. I bring knowledge of how the body works and biomechanics and can describe how I need my participants to feel in various poses / moves to know they are working the right muscle group(s), and can see where they may not be and guide them towards the right place. And now on top of this I can add my knowledge and experience of yoga poses, sequences and breathing. So putting all that together I said to her that my classes focus on strengthening muscles, stretching muscles, mobilising joints and using everyday language to guide my class to the right places, explaining what we are doing and why and the reason for everything and check with the class where they are feeling a certain pose etc. No Buddha, no jargon and no weird waving hands. She said that sounded great and just like the kind of thing she had been looking for. So i told her that was all the answer i needed as to whether I was a proper yoga instructor - and she agreed :-)
