The programme is accredited as a Post Diploma Course with the Independent Yoga Network (IYN), and it is externally accredited with and verified by the Complementary Medical Association (CMA).

What does the Meditation Teacher Training Programme cover?

This programme runs over three days, Friday to Sunday. Each training day will start at 10.00am and finish at 4.00pm. The cost of the programme will cover your participation in the programme, your manual, the assessment and certification.

Each day of the course will be dedicated to the practical study of one specific type of meditation:

• Core Meditation Techniques
• Chakra Meditation
• Raja Dharana

The aim of the programme is to present our unique approach to holistic meditation as an effective means of delivering a meditation class. This approach is applied to various meditation techniques, either energy-based (core meditation and chakra meditation) or mind-based (Dharana techniques: Trataka, Sambhavi Mudra, Ekagrata, and Mindfulness).

Whilst deeply grounded in the practical aspects of meditation, the programme will also present theoretical information including:

• The history of meditation practices
• Professional standards for a meditation teacher
• Client assessment and evaluation
• Professional boundaries
• Ethical marketing
• Taxation
• Legislation
• Music licencing
• Class management.

The programme aims to empower participants to be able to teach safely and effectively deliver meditation techniques to the public, as well as the ability to practice different forms of meditation in an informed manner.

Founder and Director

Sue Hix founded The Rosewell Centre in 1996 as a place to celebrate health and wellbeing from a holistic perspective.  She has over 30 years experience of teaching healing and health practises and provides Shiatsu, Tai Chi and Yoga, as well as organising Rosewell Retreats.

In these times Sue is focusing on bringing inspiration, healing and connection, while respecting diversity of values and beliefs.  Solutions to well being that are low cost and user friendly which can be shared widely to democratise transcendence into new consciousness.  Key elements of focus are – regulating respiration to shift physical and psychological states, – teaching how the nervous system regulates the body – presenting learning about hormone drivers and the effect of foods or substances which change our feelings – bringing transformative music into the arena, which soothes the soul and opens us to the capacity for awe.


What our Customers Say

Kirstine - The Rosewell Centre

"Sue is committed to the wellbeing of humanity and living proof of the benefits of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga and Shiatsu.”

Jo - Yoga

"I find yin yoga is both energising and re-balancing. It is a great tonic to a busy day and I had the best night's sleep in years after one of Sue's sessions" 

Beth - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix

Thank you for sending it out! A few of the people on my course have your book and it's really helpful and clear!

Justin - Aromatherapy

“Aromatherapy massage helped me no end.  Thank you.”

Hilary - Shiatsu

"I am so glad I have discovered Shiatsu massage after so many years. Shiatsu was a revelation unlike any massage I’ve ever experienced. Sue locates and works on particular areas of tension/stress - where pain gathers. The whole body shiatsu experience is intensely relaxing and therapeutic. I recommend thoroughly Shiatsu at the Rosewell Centre."

Viv - Time Out for Peace event


Thank you for such a special afternoon, it just seems this is how life should be all the time.
Came away feeling totally comfortable and relaxed.

Thank you.

Hil - Aromatherapy

"I have had many aromatherapy massages before but Rose’s is different in a most significant way - she has a deeper understanding of what you and your body needs and her tailored way of matching your needs is unique in my experience - a very gentle and therapeutic experience. I recommend it without reservation."

Raymond - Yoga

“I have been participating in Sue’s early morning yoga class for many years. It is very enjoyable as the routines vary with new poses and ideas, the most recent addition being aerial yoga.  The use of silk hammocks adds a new dimension to practice, challenging different muscles to traditional yoga postures.”

Vanessa - Gong Bath Meditation

“I had a lovely meditation with Sally’s Ocean Therapy Gong Bath, the sounds were very evocative.  I heard the waves on a beach and whales singing! All sounds were very relaxing and I felt 6 inches taller after. It was well worth the drive from Wiltshire!”

Elizabeth - Yoga

"Although I had attended regular yoga classes over the years, I hadn't heard of Yin Yoga before so I thought Id give it a try! Sue provided us with the most comfortable, resting environment in which to practice this type of yoga and I felt that her wonderful soft and gentle tone and approach to the class enhanced the whole experience for me. Sue has such a vast amount of knowledge and understanding which I found incredibly useful as we went through our positions and I enjoyed both challenging myself and the wonderful opportunity to relax and reflect.  As if this wasn't enough, after each session, I had an exceptionally restful nights' sleep!  I would highly recommend this type of yoga and Sue."

Caroline - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix


"This is a fabulous book. Thank you so much."
