The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships – TKV Desikachar

The Society of Yoga Practitioners (TSYP) is a UK based training organisation, dedicated to training Yoga teachers, Yoga therapists and Vedic chanting teachers, all to the highest UK and international standards.

We believe that by using all the tools of yoga in an intelligent way, yoga can be accessible to anyone – irrespective of age, ability, gender or religion – for healing and transformation.

Yoga

In our tradition there is so much more to yoga than postures.

Yoga therapy

Yoga therapy is a natural healthcare approach that uses traditional yoga techniques and principles for therapeutic purposes. 

Vedic chanting

We use sound in the form of mantra and chanting from the ancient scriptures of the Veda-s.

Find a yoga teacher near you

Teacher members of the TSYP have been trained to work with individuals, modifying the yoga practise according to the individual.

Events

The highlight of our year is the TSYP Annual Gathering. In addition, our members regularly organise events: masterclasses and workshops for yoga and Vedic chanting.

Training

You can start the journey train as a teacher in this tradition by joining a Foundation course, and then graduate to Teacher training.
