Tandy is both a wonderful teacher and person. She accompanied me throughout the training knowing how to guide me, pushing me to my limits in order to lead me to the path of yoga. This training is not just there to train us to be a teacher but also show us how the yoga can change our lives and open to a spiritual life. Her knowledge and her own life experiences are to guide us and open us to the yoga and to the others. The training is complete: we learn anatomy, history and philosophy of yoga, adjustment, sequencing, pranayama, mediation, yoga Nidra, pre-natal and post-natal yoga until the chronic pain during yoga sessions. The exchanges, reflections and conversations are deep in all the subjects. We never stay in doubt because we are always comfortable to ask questions and exchange. Tandy teaches us to teach with compassion and with the heart for ourselves and others. We finish this training with confidence and the desire to learn more and more. Tandy takes on her role as a mentor completely by continuing to accompany us in our early days as a teacher. This training is a new opening on life. It was a great chance to learn the sacred teachings with you. Thank you!

This course was everything I could have asked for and more! I feel not only that I've grown hugely as a teacher, but that I have gained a friend and mentor for life. This course made me fall in love with yoga all over again and I am so excited to start this next chapter of my life.

Thank you for everything.

Une semaine extraordinaire en compagnie de Tandy. Formation intense et approfondie toujours dans la bonne humeur. Les formidables qualités humaines de Tandy permettent à ses élèves de découvrir leur vérité intérieure et de s'exprimer pleinement en toute confiance ! Et une cuisinière hors-pair !

Wonderful week with Tandy. In depth and intense training always with a smile. Tandy's qualities allow her students to find their own truth and express themselves with confidence. And she's a wonderful painter and cook!

''My dream teacher training course "

I really felt that Tandy saw me, and where I am at this moment of my life, regarding my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional practice of yoga, as she encouraged me gently but firmly to pursue my path. It is possible to have very deep spiritual conversations with her, just as much as it is possible to have concrete, fruitful, fact-packed exchanges about anatomy, physiology and teaching techniques. I got proper hands-on teaching experience and also personal guided asana practice. I got to participate in her classes and observe her teaching. I also got a lot of reading material and felt positively challenged in my beliefs. Tandy listens in a focused way, and there is plenty of room for discussions and debates. I was also very happy about the delicious vegetarian food she prepared for me, and enjoyed our more casual chatting over meals and walks as well. Tandy is very good at maintaining a professional teacher/student relationship, whilst at the same time making one feel humanely welcome and at ease

“This teacher training is the most holistic, intense and inspiring training I could ever had imagined. First of all, because of the extraordinary trainer Tandy who shares her vast experience with so much authenticity and generosity that you feel she lives Yoga at 100%.

If you want to do so as well, this training gets you not only competent in your knowledge, but also inspired for your own path as a heart -centered yoga teacher: The course material (required reading) and the online and “retreat”-modules about these books and the other subjects are so rich and intense in information and reflection that you get not only an intellectual insight into yoga history, philosophy and teaching, but you can also integrate the studies emotionally and spiritually for your own yogic “lifestyle” to become an inspiring and authentic teacher. As there is also vast space and time for dialogue – not only during the retreat, but also during the months before and after, you have always opportunity to reflect on your own yoga experience, your “personality” and the requirements to develop – Tandy’s training guides you through this yogic “self-study”. So you can - adapted to your individual “base” - find your own way to your true self as a yoga teacher. To summarize: An amazing experience - I recommend this training at 100%.

This course highly exceeded any expectations I ever had for any Yoga Teacher Training course. There was lots of online coursework with constant discussion questions through email and Skype calls directly with Tandy to deepen your learning of each module. The week retreat portion was fantastic, a week in beautiful rural France with delicious home cooked food prepared for you for every meal. A week of full days of discussion and practical work with refreshing walks in the countryside. The absolute best thing about this course is that you have this incredibly knowledgeable and passionate teacher’s full attention to answer and discuss in depth anything you need more information on or feel unprepared for. You will leave this course feeling completely prepared and knowledgeable to teach various level yoga students including pre-natal, post-natal and students suffering from chronic pain due to previous injury. Tandy also provides continued support after the course in business and marketing which is invaluable for students wanting to start up their yoga business. The best teacher training experience I could have ever dreamed of!

I have been practicing yoga with Tandy for nearly two years and I recommend her to everyone. She is so knowledgeable and as we practice she informs us all the time about which muscles, organs we are working and how they work. She is SO knowledgeable giving us information all the time. She makes us believe that we can be much more than we thought we could be. More importantly we trust her implicitly.

Tandy, as far as I’m concerned, is the best yoga teacher I have ever had the privilege of practising with. Having moved from France I now miss her so very much.

My mother in law introduced me to Prana Navina yoga run by Tandy a couple of years ago. I'd only done a small amount of yoga before that. Since starting my posture and flexibility has improved immensely. I have learnt techniques to help with breathing & relaxation. Tandy is a fantastic teacher. I find her guidance informative & constructive. (She always seems to know when I've let my core go). She really is an amazing teacher. I would (and do) recommend her to any one looking for a yoga class, whatever level of yoga they have. The classes are very friendly with a very welcome atmosphere. I try to arrange appointments around my yoga as I hate to miss a class. I feel this review hasn't done Tandy any justice, I can't speak highly enough of her.

I have just spent a week in Catalonia on my first retreat.  We did yoga, meditation, hiking and crafts. Words can't express how much I have learnt about myself and what I have experienced. Laughter, fun, challenges and huge development of my understanding of yoga. The experiences have made me want more!

I have just finished reading your book, it was such a great book, so clearly explained. It has really helped me to understand more about my emotional connection to my injury.

Gail Bolton

Breaking the Attention to Pain, one of the best books I have read for ages. Everybody should read this, even if you don't suffer from chronic pain. It helped me realise that only I am responsible for how I feel. Thanks

Tandy has been helping me over the last year to recover from a herniated disk. When I came to her I was in so much pain, and could not get any relief. Tandy helped me understand more about my injury and how pain shows up in the body. I have just come back from a weeks hiking in Scotland, and was completely pain free. Thank  you Tandy...thank you Yoga.

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training with Tandy in 2018 and enjoyed every moment of it. I loved her down to earth teaching style and her ability to bring passion into every part of the training. I now have a successful private practice and love every moment.

I began yoga for the first time ever about 3 years ago. Tandy is absolutely brilliant! She explains everything that we are doing and how it will effect us without judgement or criticism. Tandy is supportive and makes me feel confident enough to try any pose. It is through her that I have found my love for yoga.

What do I recommend about Tandy Pengelly - everything! Tandy is amongst the most caring people I know, who is extremely knowledgeable within her profession, and I think I speak for most when I say we trust her explicitly. If you are lucky enough to know her then I think you’ll agree that Tandy is a ‘must have’ in your life.

I have just spent an amazing week in the Spanish Pyrenees with Tandy and new friends. This is my second retreat with Tandy, and as before I have come away feeling refreshed, energised and positive. Not only is Tandy incredibly knowledgeable about the mind, body and soul, she is also an fantastic cook. I would absolutely recommend Tandy's retreats and can't wait for the next one.
