As part of their teacher training, we ask our trainees to write a blog post sharing their thoughts on their experience, or a favourite topic that comes up during the course. Chiara is now just over a month away from finishing her training, and she shares with us her experience and top 10 moments!
As 2018 brings about lots of new, exciting yoga training modules, I want to reflect on how
this incredible experience has shaped the past months of my life, what it sparkled, and what it brought in, more or less unexpectedly.
I embarked on the journey of a yoga teacher training in a time of my life when I already had
quite a full plate: I was in the middle of my Postdoc at the University of Oxford, dealing with
the logistic difficulties of a long distance relationship (my husband lives abroad), obviously
worrying about the future. Becoming a qualified yoga teacher was nowhere in the plan.
And yet, yoga had been part of my life for at least the past 10 years, and when I realized the immense learning potential of a teacher training, I had no doubt that I wanted to make space for it in my life. As I turned 30 last summer, I wanted new tools to search for wisdom.

Hello all, we've got some big news at Yoga Quota and our biggest hire yet!
I set up Yoga Quota in 2014 aiming to make yoga more accessible for vulnerable people, with self funding business model and a unique quota system that makes us accountable (business model) and working hard.
We became a charity so you know we have the oversight from the charities commission and three independent unpaid trustees.
I've always dreamt big for Yoga Quota The trustees and I want it to be the yoga provider of choice in the charity sector in the UK. We have already made big steps towards this with Badgeholders, studio partners and charity partners UK wide. And all funded through the generosity of the Yoga community in Oxford who come to our studio and our teacher training.
Yoga Quota has always been a personal journey of love for me. I have built up an amazing team at the studio who make it possible and in parallel I've had a baby now two years old and I'm expecting my second in two weeks.
So now for the changes!
This week we’ve added *four* new Yoga Quota Badgeholders! Welcome to Cass (Canterbury) Lauren (Falmouth), Marzia (Basingstoke) and Jo (Didcot). They’ve each committed to sharing the benefits of yoga by teaching free classes for charities in their area.
Our network of badgeholder continues to grow, which means we have teachers in more locations than ever who are available to teach charity classes. If you know a local charity that could use some yoga let us know!
We love our badgeholder program, it’s really what Yoga Quota is all about! If you’re a yoga teacher, and interested in joining the Yoga Quota Badgeholder team, and fill out our badgeholder form. We feature you on our website, blog & social media, to help let people know about the amazing work you do.
