About the Simon:

Simon has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and has developed a unique and personal teaching style, keeping classes diverse, focused and fun. The foundations of Simon’s yoga teaching reflect his training and ongoing studies with international teachers in many approaches to yoga, movement and therapy.


Simon first trained as a yoga teacher with Dr Larry Payne at Samata in Los Angeles, in the USA, where he lived for 7 years. After a 14 year career in the music business working as first an artistes agent in London & finally as vice-president of a&r for RCA Records US in New

York, Simon went on to study and explore a wide variety of physical, energetic and spiritual practices, including Iyengar  yoga, Astanga Vinyasa yoga,  Okido yoga and Viniyoga,  Chi Kung,  The  Alexander  Technique,  Pilates,  Macrobiotics,  and Chinese

Medicine, effectively bringing together the essential elements of these sources of wisdom and healing into his teaching today.


Simon’s ‘Yin and Yang Yoga’teaching is a balanced and thorough approach to yoga practice, on and off the mat, incorporating techniques

that address equally the seen physical body and the unseen energetic, mental, emotional & spiritual facets of our being. He encourages the individual  to  remain  mindfully  focused  towards  internal  exploration  as a  guide to experiencing  yoga as it is meant to be practiced – a personal journey toward inner peace,  freedom,  clarity,  balance  and integration, and the revealing and nurturing of the True Self – your ‘ essence’.


Simon  is Principal  and Founder of The Yoga Academy,  one of the UK’s  leading  yoga  teacher training schools, and a co-founder and the

original Director of Yoga at Triyoga, the UK’s most popular yoga studios. Simon runs teacher trainings,  weekend residentials,  workshops

and yoga holidays in the UK and internationally throughout the year. The DVD “Yin and Yang Yoga with Simon Low” by Acacia is available

from this website or via Amazon or Yogamatters, and in 2013 Simon will release a Yin Yoga app with Naked Buddha. Simon has been guest

writer  for  “Ask the Experts”  in  the  Observer  newspaper,  and  has  been  covered in or has contributed  to numerous  national  and local newspaper and magazine articles.


While Simon continues his busy international teaching schedule, he is in the process of writing a book & a new series of DVDs, & continues

on his journey toward opening this dedicated yoga & wellness retreat centre, Santillan.





The new Yoga Academy intensive teacher training course commencing 9 November 2019 offers the same full-time faculty, content and curriculum as our renowned 2-year course.

The two 2-week residential intensives 9-23 November 2019 and 15 – 29 August 2020 will be at Santillan in Spain.

Between these two intensives there will be scheduled coursework including asana technique, teaching methodology, applied anatomy, philosophy and teaching practice.
