To give you a student’s perspective, here’s some feedback from previous trainees:
“I began my teacher training after procrastinating about it for years – thinking I wouldn’t be good enough, it would be too hard, too intimidating. After the first session I realized that I was right where I needed to be; surrounded by inspiring teachers, Tamara and the most beautiful trainees who have become dear friends. I started the course with the intention of learning more about yoga and deepening my practice – I had no desire to teach – I didn’t think I would be good enough or brave enough. I was so surprised to discover after only a few months that I was in fact learning not only about yoga but about myself, my connection to others and about facing my fears. The beautiful teachings of yoga philosophy have deeply influenced me and I hope are making me a better mother, wife and friend. The practical teachings of alignment, anatomy and pranayama have helped to indeed deepen and enhance my love of yoga practice. To be fully immersed in such a beautiful course has been such a gift to me and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I am now so grateful to be teaching children and adults and it is such a joy to be able to share this gift.” – Mel W
“I felt so nervous, vulnerable and full of self-doubt sitting on the mat in our TT introduction; I did not see myself as a yogi, and I was not sure if my love for Tamara Yoga was enough of a prerequisite. As it turns out a year into the two year course I know it is. Today I stand as a yogi, strong and steady in mountain pose and have never felt more determined to finish what I started. I have moved through learning blocks that I never thought possible. In TT I have stepped into a community of likeminded friends. I breathe, I open my heart and I am back in my body, TT has been a truly transformative experience.” – Rebecca J
“My Tamara Yoga Teacher Experience has been transformational. It has truly deepened my own yoga practice and I feel like I am closer to my true self. The connection with the other trainees has been so beautiful, we are all from different backgrounds, of different ages and experiences, but we come together in our love of yoga. Deep friendships have blossomed from this base.
As a Mother of three young boys I feel amazed looking back on the first year of training of all that I have achieved. From the presentations to our anatomy exam, the things that have seemed so terrifying and insurmountable have become my greatest accomplishments. This has given me confidence in going forward, that I truly can do anything I set my mind, heart and soul towards.
After a year of yoga training, studying the philosophy and committing to my own practice, I felt I would have a great understanding of yoga, but after each learning I feel that excited thrill of a beginner. The knowledge we have been given is a drop in the ocean to all there is to know and that is fascinating to me. This path will never get boring.
The Tamara Yoga classes and the teachers that teach there have a little bit of magic sprinkled into them. When I leave class I feel like a different person to who I was going in. I am calmer, at peace and blissed out. I am truly grateful for this space to come to change my state of being whenever I need it.
Tamara is one of life’s true blessings. She was 100% correct when she realised that her Dharma was to teach yoga and spread the gift of it to others. By training us, her gift extends further, and I am so proud to be one of her students.
My goal when I started this was to be trained to spread my love of yoga to others and Tamara Yoga Teacher Training is exactly the right place for me to do this. The Universe has truly put me in the place where I need to be.
If you are considering Teacher Training with Tamara don’t let your fears stand in your way of your true path. We are all terrified, but our beautiful teacher training group and Tamara support us each step of the way.”

“Today after 2 amazing years of Teacher Training with Tamara Graham I come to my final exam. This has been one of the most life changing experiences I’ve had to date, this journey has been about me, for me. I feel it has made me get to know my true self and has given me the tools to look at life with new eyes. It has been stressful, frustrating and daunting at times but above all so amazingly rewarding. I have met the most beautiful people along the way who will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you everyone who has done TT18 with me, the support and friendship you have given is beyond words. Thank you Tamara for your wisdom, joy and ability to share your unending knowledge of Yoga and life. Hari Om Om Tat Sat.” _Leah

“I wanted to improve my overall health and mental wellbeing and was also trying to conceive. Somehow, I just knew the answer was yoga, and it was successful – we have a beautiful 18-month-old boy to prove it! If you’re the type of person already seeking a more contented life, yoga is the way to bring union to mind, body and spirit.” – Stacey Conti
