A YogaAlliance 200-hour registered courseFacilities


Our Home In the Heart of London

Our main training home is the beautiful Kagyu Samye Dzong, a Tibetan Buddhist centre in Bermondsey, London. This newly refurbished building opened its doors in the summer 2010, and houses a shrine, two large yoga studios, a café and library.


What is Bermondsey like?

Bermondsey is a hidden gem, snuggled in next to London Bridge. Trendy Bermondsey Street is full of artsy cafes and art galleries, while under the train arches you'll find artisan cheese markets, bio wines and flower stalls. A pleasant stroll away you'll find the world famous Borough Market - a foodies delight. If you are coming in from out of town, ask us about affordable accommodation nearby, or take a look at our area guide.

High ceilings

Lots of natural light

Bamboo floors

Delicious food and drink

The café in the centre serves delicious vegetarian food, teas and coffee, served to you by the resident monks and nuns. There you shall also find a library and small shop. Perhaps best of all is the Shrine Room, available to the public as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of London life.


May I visit the centre?

You are welcome to visit us at the training centre! It is best if you visit on one of our training days, so that you can see the school in action and speak with teachers and students. Call us on 07585 807 354 and we let you know the best times to visit. You may also come along to one of our free Try Us evenings.
