Apanaveda Teacher Training is so much more than a yoga course. Its founder and mentor Vicky has created a remarkable training course, born from a wealth of experience and knowledge and of being a warm and caring pure spirit. It is so much more than a yoga training course, the journey touches you on a profound level, that establishes deep within, as your spirit begins to blossom and bloom into becoming an Apanaveda Yoga Teacher. I whole heartedly recommend this wonderful School of yoga.

Vicky guides, shares and delivers inspiring insight and wisdom of the yogic way, her devotion shines through every module. Alongside her, for various parts of the course, she brings in incredible guest speakers that are expert in their field. She provides an invaluable manual that underlines and explores the various aspects of the course and becomes a life-long support tool.

You feel completely supported and Vicky teaches from the heart with an innate ability to connect with each student with patience and kindness.

Thank you so much Vicky and all the beautiful souls I shared my course alongside, it has been an amazing journey that has shaped me, taught me and inspired me to move forward and to share the light that has ignited within me, on and off of the mat.

It is a privilege to be a part of the ever growing, and in Vicky’s loving words ‘Apanaveda Family’.

Love and gratitude

Doing my Apanaveda yoga teaching training was truly the best thing I have ever done! It must have been meant to be, as I knew instantly when walking into the beautiful garden studio on the first day that I had made the right decision! There are hundreds of courses to choose from but Vicki is truly a special teacher. She teaches from her heart and is so pure, genuine and kind with a world of knowledge to impart. She helped all of us to reach our own potential, giving lots of hugs and encouragement along the way! Apanaveda yoga is true yoga, with yoga philosophy at the heart of absolutely everything. Be prepared for a very magical and personal journey!

“I am so grateful for your guidance and heartfelt teaching, your wisdom and your friendship. The TTC has been such a beautiful life-changing journey, prepared so beautifully by you and your knowledge and grace. You’ve helped me recognise my true Self and the goodness in others. You always have ‘time’ and have held a space for all of us on this journey in such a loving, gracious manner.

This has been so much more than teacher training. I feel like you’ve given me something so special, that some people may not find in their lifetime. I recognise contentment in the present moment, something I’d rarely felt before I started the course. Your quote…. ‘There is ONLY ever the present moment’ will stay with me for a lifetime.

Thank you for all you have given. I am so incredibly grateful and you are so so special.

This course was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s so much deeper than just Yoga Teacher Training. Not only do you meet some incredible people on your journey, but you really learn a lot about yourself too.
The level of understanding we have gained as yoga teachers is second to none. I feel proud to be an Apanaveda yoga teacher and have so many tools to be able to help people in life and ensure I teach in a safe manner.

I would love to just take the time to express the last 9 months of my YTT journey.
I have made some amazing friends for life.
Not only a self journey, great friendships, a tutor for life but also so much knowledge, enough to keep me unraveling the onion of yoga for ever.
I am so happy I did my research to find a yoga course that would not only teach me the philosophy of yoga and much more, but also by the end of the course the confidence to start my own dream and business as a yoga teacher. Thank you Vicky for helping me love yoga not only on the mat but more importantly off the mat

This course is authentic in every aspect-as yoga should be.

Vicky teaches her Apanaveda style with an incredible knowledge base and experience, and with a kindness and acceptance which sets her apart. Her very humanistic approach has taught me that yoga is suitable for everyone and that you do not have to be body ‘perfect’ to teach and that body ‘perfect’ is not the point of yoga anyway!

‘After looking at different styles of Yoga Teacher Training, I was drawn to Apanaveda Yoga.

The course was a life-changing experience.

The level of detail in the training manual is amazing and is well balanced by Vicky’s many years of experience, helping us through the process of learning how to move the body in a safe and natural way.

I found that Vicky has a natural ability to tune into each of her students, ensuring everyone learns together, yet in their own way.

The course work was covered with a hands-on approach, helping all to gain confidence in their own way of expressing themselves as teachers.

Group work was fun and at times it felt there was a connection between teacher and students, that I have not experienced before.

The day I completed my teacher training, I felt I could teach with confidence, safety and with the heart-and-soul of continuation of what yoga really is……A Journey!’

Vicky has a magical way with teaching and motivating, every session Vicky brings something different with her: humour, love and kindness, amazing skills and above all her knowledge which is boundless. I’m so excited about my future, this has been a wonderful journey, which has really only just begun. I miss the weekends spent with all the wonderful people who have become lifelong friends and I look forward to when we get together, it’s lovely to keep in touch with them and see how we all progress as each of us takes a slightly different path. I thank Vicky from the bottom of my heart for all she has given me, this course has been life changing in a way I never expected.

Vicky has been my valued and respected yoga teacher for ten years or so. Over this time, I have learnt so much from her which has coalesced during this last nine months teacher training enabling me to feel happy and confident as a fully-fledged yoga teacher. Very grateful to have shared this journey with Vicky and my amazing fellow students.

Apanaveda Teacher Training provides you with the grounding and foundation to enter the wonderful world of teaching yoga as a knowledgeable, confident and safe instructor. The course delves extensively into philosophy, theory and practice through patient and compassionate training from Vicky and the excellent guest teachers she has on board.
The beating heart of Apanaveda is Vicky with her wealth of knowledge, experience and continuous guidance. Her unwavering support and loving kindness, along with the new friends and kindred spirits that I’ve shared this journey with, have made this an incredible experience.

I can hand on heart say, what an emotional and life-changing weekend this last weekend of the course has been, with such special people I have shared this incredible journey with. Thank you for being so supportive, loving, kind and believing in each other despite obstacles and life’s challenges. Thank you to our beautiful guru, teacher and friend, Victoria, you are such an inspiration and a wealth of endless, limitless knowledge, all wrapped inside the most compassionate, devoted, selfless soul. I truly love you. Thank you my fellow tribe… WE DID IT!!!!

After months of searching for the right yoga teacher training course in the UK and abroad for the style of teaching I wanted to follow and not finding what I was looking for I was lucky to attend one of Vicky’s yoga classes and discover that she was just starting up her own teacher training course. Loving her style of teaching, integrity and warmth I decided to sign up to Apanaveda. Being based in Essex I also thought that training in my county would be beneficial for forming a good network of fellow yoga trainees to bounce ideas off throughout my training and also once I am qualified. I could not be happier with the outcome to date.

I am halfway through my training and the level of teaching is above and beyond other courses I looked at. The group of people in my class are wonderful and I couldn’t have asked for a lovelier bunch of yogis to join me on my journey. Vicky is a fantastic teacher who takes the time to ensure everyone fully understands what is being taught and teaches in a fun and uplifting way to always keep the lessons fun and interactive. She takes onboard feedback and adapts to each persons needs and I consider myself blessed to have found such an inspiring teacher to learn from

Vicky is a patient, passionate and truly inspiring teacher. Her course covers the many different aspects of yoga and she gives her students the knowledge, confidence and support needed to become safe and effective teachers themselves. It has been an amazing journey and I would thoroughly recommend this course.

This is truly inspirational teaching – years of experience and loving kindness coming together to provide a framework in which you can deepen your commitment and develop your own teaching practice.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Apanaveda but I certainly haven’t been disappointed. Vicky is a caring teacher and has put together a course that combines technical knowledge with hands-on guidance. I now have a clearer picture of my own intentions and have the confidence to bring the joy of yoga to a wider audience. Nothing less than a life-changing experience!

Apanaveda Teacher Training Course is an in-depth course of yoga where science, philosophy and practice of yoga slowly and gently becomes a part of you.

Victoria has a unique way of teaching that empowers her students from the first lesson by bringing freedom to their minds and bodies, releasing them from habitual patterns of thoughts and movements. She teaches without rushing, with enthusiasm, giving herself to the lessons unlimitedly and is a guide to her students during and outside of class hours.

I look forward to each and every class with all my heart, mind and soul.
