200 Hour YTT

SMART qualifications is a professional and welcoming organisation. Suzanna was warm and informative in her email correspondence and I received all the information I required. The course was wonderful with amazing guest tutors to talk us through elements such as philosophy, mudras, and pranayama. The SMART team really helped make anatomy and physiology fun and interesting! Helena was our course tutor. She is such a beautiful soul and a fantastic teacher. She lives her yoga practice and this really came across in her teachings. Sukha and sthira – soft and flexible yet stable and strong – applies to Helena perfectly. This made her a wonderful teacher and mentor. I am really sad that I am almost at the end of my course, but I also feel ready for the next step on my journey.


 “Helena is an insightful and compassionate tutor. Her knowledge of the subject is unrivalled and she does not just teach yoga to students, she lives her subject. Her understanding of the way people learn in different ways is highlighted by her ability to not only communicate on many levels but to convey esoteric principles in a way that makes them easily accessible. Helena understands that the subject matter, from philosophy to anatomy, means different things to different pupils and her encouragement of self-directed learning helps her students to develop in a deeply personal way. She has the ability to take an ancient belief system and apply it to the modern world and make it alive, real and extremely relevant. 

Alison – Letchworth

Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training

I genuinely can’t recommend this course highly enough. There is a team approach to the course which means that participants benefit from a range of experts in their fields, all of whom are passionate and knowledgable and their teaching is very accessible. Helena embodies yoga, it oozes from every pore! To paraphrase Helena ‘where there is yoga there is love’ and this comes through so much on the course.


 “I really enjoyed the course and have learned more than I could have imagined.  I eat differently, I know about food and its vibrational qualities and how this can improve the experience of yoga. 

I understand different styles of yoga and feel that a whole yoga world has opened up for me and I can choose which way I take it. So many options.  The course has changed how I live my life for the better and I am really grateful for the experience.    Namaste!” 

Esther – Hitchin

Helena Bingham our tutor, not only passed on knowledge in an experiential way during my time studying with her but also encouraged a level of self- acceptance and a curiosity that will continue with me for a long time to come.

The past 12 months spent  training to be a yoga teacher with Helena have been rich and life enhancing. xxx
