Earthereal of Yorkshire
Holistic Training Academy
and Therapy Practice

Earthereal of Yorkshire is the holistic training academy and therapy practice of Lois Skilleter, teacher, therapist and Reiki Master, based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

Are you considering a new career as a Holistic Therapist, or an experienced therapist wishing to add to your repertoire? I welcome students at all levels and from all backgrounds: with the wide range of Guild accredited Practitioner Diploma courses I teach on behalf of Vitality Holistic Therapy, I hope there will be something to suit you.

I teach just one or two students on each course, to ensure personal attention, friendly tuition and the opportunity for plenty of practical experience to ensure my students are able to work confidently and effectively to deliver their chosen therapies. I also offer ongoing support to all my students, and refresher sessions if required.

With a background in primary and early years teaching, as well as SEN support, I have a particular interest in working with children and young people, and with families who have additional needs. Reiki 1 courses can be offered at a reduced rate for small groups in this situation and workshops can be tailored to individual needs. I believe that holistic therapies can be of great benefit to everyone and part of my "mission statement" is to make them accessible to as many people as possible.

Please take a look at my "feedback" page and read the views of some of my students and clients: if you feel I may be the teacher for you, do get in touch for a no obligation chat.

Brand New IPTI Validated Distance Learning Course

Meditation Teacher Diploma  


Now available: New Vitality courses!

Hawaiian Style Lomi Lomi Massage Diploma Course

A one day Postgraduate course for students with a body massage qualification, this beautiful massage has been described by a client as "being in the middle of a beautiful, bold dance". It is a completely different experience from a Western massage, involving the whole body in a relaxing yet tension releasing, spiritual massage.

Half Day Abdominal Massage Diploma Course

A half day course for therapists wishing to offer a specific abdominal massage or for people wishing to learn a massage to help family and friends who have digestive issues, this relaxing treatment can offer benefits to people with IBS and other digestive issues.
