I first came across Yoga whilst in professional dance training and over the years I soon discovered it was my true calling to work in the community as a Yoga teacher. Fast forward 17 years and it has been my full time profession that has supported me both energetically and financially to live a life I love. 

Teaching Yoga is one of the most rewarding experiences. It allows us to be part of a community, it brings us back to our bodies and our hearts, it requires us to see ourselves in others and to be truly responsible for our own direction in life. 

Drawing upon my years of teaching experience I have worked together with BWY to create a course that strives to meet the needs of society today. I am passionate about making Yoga accessible to all and as a woman I believe that including women's health in Yoga teacher trainings is absolutely essential.

Virgina Wolf said, every woman should have money and a room of her own. It is my mission to support and empower women just like you to find their voice as a Yoga teacher and create the good in the world through the practice and teaching of Yoga. 

Hi, I'm Hana, Full time Yoga teacher and teacher trainer of 17 years experience, London Mum and Lover of Tea! 

Meet Hana ...

“It has been one of the best things I have done in a very long time”

- Lana Kaziro


It has been a wonderful and awesome experience. It has been one of the best things I have done in a very long time. I have been able to challenge myself, it has given me confidence and it has been just an amazing opportunity. I am so glad that I did it! I am a single parent and I work full time. Hana was very good at being flexible and assisting me throughout the course and I am so glad I did! It was hard work but well worth the hard work. I highly recommend it.

“This course made my business dreams come true! I made six figures, and I couldn't have done it without Kate!”


Kind words


“Its been an amazing time and I've learnt so much from it”

- Catherine Van Loo

I would highly recommend the course. Hana is really experienced and very knowledgeable teacher. What I found amazing was her ability to convey quite complex topics in a very accessible way. She created a very supportive and safe environment for everyone to learn. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to teach, but also if you want to really deepen your practice. 

“This course made my business dreams come true! I made six figures, and I couldn't have done it without Kate!”


Kind words


“I highly recommend this course. I am really glad that I did it with Hana.”

-Weng Yee

We covered so much including the practical aspects of becoming a teacher. Lots of helpful things that we don’t think of when becoming a teacher. Hana was a wonderful course tutor, she has so much knowledge to give. She has built herself up as a great Yoga teacher in London and getting to impart her experiences and knowledge to us was so helpful.

It was great to be amongst other Yoga lovers and people going through the same things together. It was wonderful to have these people to go through this journey together. It was a really supportive group and we all plan to stay in in touch.

“This course made my business dreams come true! I made six figures, and I couldn't have done it without Kate!”


Kind words


“I couldn’t recommend it more, so go for it!”

- Vincent de Freitas

I have learnt so much and met so many great people. As far as I'm concerned I did practice yoga before but I now know completely so much more than I did. I am really excited about becoming a Yoga Teacher and a new career. If you are thinking about joining this course with Hana, she is top class, she is a fantastic Yoga teacher with so much knowledge. I couldn’t recommend it more so go for it!

“This course made my business dreams come true! I made six figures, and I couldn't have done it without Kate!”


Kind words


“It's been illuminating for me. It's changed the way I live my life."

“It has been a truly phenomenal experience and I've gained so much confidence, not just in teaching yoga, but in just being more secure in myself as well."

 Caron delayed taking the course because she couldn't see herself as a yoga teacher. But throughout the course she gained loads of confidence and discovered her own voice as Yoga teacher! Fast forward to now, she teaches a couple of classes a week along side of her regular job and is loving it! 

 Lisha completed this course whilst studying on her PHD. She gained the skills and confidence to run Yoga classes for her fellow students at her Uni as well as teach an oniline session for a local charity.

Anne Endres 

"The balance of online and in-person sessions allowed me to take my training with me when away in France"

Anne was sceptical about the online element of the course, but then realised it allowed her the freedom to be away the whole summer but still take the training with her. Anne also started running her own online classes with family and friends whilst on the course and then expanded to teaching in her home and now has hired a community hall for the class she has grown. 

Sandy BErgman

I went from being petrified, to teaching a 60 min class in a London studio and loving it!" 

When Sandy started the course she was really anxious about the teaching aspect. But throughout the course she gained the confidence to find her own unique voice as a teacher and breezed through her final teaching assessments with ease and joy! She is now embarking on her calling to create a specialised Yoga programme to support women suffering with PPMD. 

Rachele Frosini

"It's been a journey of my own power and authenticity in becoming the Yoga teacher I want to be" 

Rachele dreamed of becoming a Yoga teacher after retirement as she thought it just wasn't possible with a demanding full time job and a young family. She managed to complete the course and even start a Yoga class! She felt super supported in becoming the yoga teacher she wanted to be.

Here is what you can expect from joining the British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training with Hana

Yoga Philosophy and Anatomy are huge and complex subjects! On this course I use my years of teaching experience to simplify and make these topics relatable and applicable to our day to day lives. I consider all learning styles in my delivery. If you have any special requirements in your learning I will do all I can to support you. 

Unlike teacher trainings that have 50+ students at a time, this course is limited to a maximum of 18 students, which means I get to know and support you better. The course includes a minimum of 3 private one to one feedback sessions and I'm always available if you need more support. 

Creating a non competitive, non dogmatic and supportive learning environment is of upmost importance to me. I encourage all students teachers to find their own voice and style. We all support and learn from each other within a safe, friendly and nurturing environment . Life long Yoga friends are often found on this journey! 

This course is quality assured, internally and externally by British Wheel of Yoga and Ofqual. Ofqual is the governing body for the UK education framework. They have rated the course as a level 4 standard, which makes this the highest level of Yoga teacher training in the UK.

Following that one-liner highlight from your client's testimonial you are going to want to add the entire thing hear to really drive home how awesome people think your course or product is.

- Sarah

“I mean, there are basically no words! My business has totally changed!”



I am worried about the time comitment how much time do I need to complete the course? 

You would need to attend 80% of all the course dates. You would also need approximately 4 hours a week for homework and teaching practices. Most people who attend the course have full time jobs and families, so this is achievable for many. 

Frequently Asked Questions

I am worried my yoga practice is not advanced enough to become a yoga teacher.

You will only learn to teach the postures you can do yourself and their modifications. Being a Yoga teacher really isn't about knowing how to do advanced yoga practices. It is about understanding people and how to make yoga accessible to them. 

Am I too old or too young to become a Yoga teacher? 

Absolutely not! You can become a great Yoga teacher at any age! BWY asks for student teachers on the course to be over 16 years of age, there is no maximum age limit. I have had student teachers on my course from early 20s-late 60s. Every individual will bring their own personality and life experiences into their Yoga teaching, age is never an obstacle. 

I have an injury or a condition why effects my Yoga practice and might effect my learning. Is this course suitable?

In terms of the physical practice, modifications and alternatives will always be offered. In terms of learning on the course, please let me know and we will figure out a way to make this course accessible to you. 

I am planning to have a baby soon, what would happen if I fall pregnant on the course?

This is not problem and surprisingly common in teacher trainings. During our last course 2 babies where born! We will simply work around your dates and offer extensions on homework and support you through the course.  

What is your cancelation policy? 

All fees are non refundable and non transferable. If you needed additional time to complete the homework after the end of the course a special considerations form can be completed to give you an extension on this.
