Our History:
We’ve come a long way since 1946, when the British School of Yoga began its life here in the quiet rolling hills of Devon – the perfect haven for teaching all things holistically healing and harmonious. As the years have passed by, we’ve been joined by four other schools; the Midland Institute of Hypnotherapy and Associated Stress Consultants in 1990, and New Age Foundation and Writers International in 1996. As BSY Group, we have grown considerably with the ever increasing interest in complementary medicine and natural health – and with over 270 courses currently on offer, we now have one of the widest ranges available anywhere.
