From Hawaii to India to Hong Kong to Thailand and more, this life practice of yoga continues to grow her spiritually and physically and has gifted her gifts beyond her imagination. Aylan will join Atman Team in the YTTC in March.

"Amazing life-changing experience!"
I really enjoyed my teacher training very much, with Julia, Coralia and Dimos. They are such wonderful and amazing souls, and highly knowledgeable yogis. They have so much knowledge to share! My practice has really deepened and I am much more aware of my body, mind and soul. My group only had 10 students and we really connected and became a family during the whole course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone because it really is a life-changing experience! The place was absolutely amazing, the food, the ambience and the people. The teachers are really supportive and sincere towards your development. Take on this course, and you will not regret it!

"Beautiful experience, life long bonds formed "
The training itself was incredible. The teachers are all so knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. I learned and grew so much, it was a transformative experience. The group itself was beautiful, and the bonds we formed will last a life time. This must be attributed to the teachers’ ability to cultivate a calm and safe yogic space and community within the group. Wouldn’t trade my time with Atman Yoga school for anything. So happy this is the one I chose.

The teachers were extremely helpful, informative, always with a smile and gave time to help each student. It was extremely easy to communicate as everyone was so open and willing to listen. Advice was given in a constructive way. The whole 200hr was amazing and extremely beneficial in a multitude of ways. Asanas pranayama philosophy anatomy etc were all taught in a interesting manner and with depth. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend.

"....if you look for authentic, genuine teachers."
A life changing experience, 200 Hour TTC is an investment for a lifetime.
Little did I know of the greatness within me, brought out by two amazing, compassionate and skilled teachers. Had to relearn fundamentals, even how to walk.
Julia and Coralia precious souls, thank you for making me rise and blossom like a true lotus. Namaste.

"A life changing experience"
This yoga retreat was an incredible experience. I had hight expectations when I booked this retreat but everything was above what I could imagine ! I am so thankful I met Coralia, Julia & Dimos, they are very sattvic, amazing and wise teachers (and funny too!). I really enjoyed each single class, we had the chance to discover several types of yoga, to practice intensively hatha and vinyasa and to analyse the most important asanas. The anatomy & philosophy classes is very very interesting ! And the bonus : Dimos classes are incredibly useful for our life goals, thought life coaching technics.
I highly recommend this YTT for learning teacher yogi skills but also for the personal transformation process.

It was incredible.
All the teachers had an open ear and heart for us.
It can be challenging to deal with yourself, because of so much yoga and meditation you get a pretty good look inside. But they guided us through and it was a truely transformational experience.
Thank you so much!

I did a TTC course where Coralia was one of the teachers. I was enjoying to be near Coralia so much, she inspire me that it is ok to be a sattvic person and to live what it is truth for me. She is funny, kind and real yogini. She teach me a lot about philosophy of yoga. She inspire me to be a travel yoga teacher, she is travelling all around the world she teach and she is learning from different gurus and yogic all the time. I miss her and i know that i will see her again when the time will cross our path again. Thank you for being part of my life. My love Coralia

I attended a 200 YTT with Coralia Batista and I am so glad that I did. Coralia is very genuine and has a very deep understanding of both the asanas and the philosophy of yoga, my mind body and soul loved her lessons! Her variation of the asanas to different body types were incredible, I got deep into poses that I never thought was possible without compromising alignment. She is a wonderful teacher and I would love to attend her classes again!
