“The teachers were extremely knowledgeable in all areas (philosophy, anatomy, teaching methods). Overall, the training was very well designed and balanced in terms of practice and theory.”

“I learned that teaching yoga is not just about delivering cues. Every student is different and has their own histories that we need to be considerate of. Therefore, it becomes even more important to have a good understanding, not only of anatomy, but also how to create a safe environment so students can practice a yoga appropriate for them, without feeling judged or pressurized.”

‘This training, was mind-blowing for me on so many aspects. I am not exaggerating when I say it really changed my life, my vision of life, my way of practicing MY yoga.
