The exquisite support provided by Meera from my very first email made me trust her immediately, feeling at ease and well looked after. My initial idea was to take the course as a personal development journey with no intention to teach whatsoever. But the scope of the teachings and knowledge acquired, the high personal and professional quality level of all the teachers, and the diverse and wholistic approach of the course, made me feel empowered and confident in the possibility of teaching yoga. In my opinion, the involvement, nurturing care and warm support of the teachers contributed to make of this course a profound life changing experience that exceeded all my expectations.
I will start teaching next month and will come back next year to do the Yoga Nidra training with Meera. If you want to enjoy a comprehensive training in a beautiful beach location surrounded by nature and comfortable facilities...search no more!! Diya Yoga is your school

arching for the right ttc I have found Diya yoga in the internet and I got that certain feeling of trust right away. All of the sudden there were no doubts anymore and I was sure, if I will do a 200h Yoga TTC I'll do it with Meera at Diya Yoga. The day came and I arrived in Arambol. Diya Yoga was right behind the beach in a very beautiful, natural environment. Meera was very welcoming. She is a very positive, caring, enthusiastic and loving person. At anytime she would take care of us students, making sure that each of us is comfortable.
The school that Meera set up offers a lot. Not only a wide range of yoga Styles such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Yin, Ashtanga and Restorative.... but also a lot of different meditation- and awareness techniques, Pranayama practice, mantra singing and of course Philosophy and Anatomy Classes, which I enjoyed a lot. As a future Yoga teacher you will be well prepaired and you will get the chance to try out which yoga style you prefer creating your own classes! I loved it and it was just perfect having that possibilities! We had a lot of great teachers coming to share their knowledge and the above mentioned is just to give an idea. There will be a lot more to learn, to experience and to ENJOY on that beautiful journey. I would love to repeat that wonderful time exactly the same way again and again and again. I can just encourage you to contact Meera for any question that you might have, she is a great person and will help you for sure!

meone who can have a look over my Yoga practice and give me some new keys to deepen my asanas! Luckily I met Meera again, a beautiful women and Yoga teacher, I got to know last season. I felt deeply touched by her and was very curious about the Yoga school she founded. When I asked her, if she has time for me, or if its possible to jump into here classes, Meera invited me to join the TTC......
Nowadays there is a quite some Yoga Schools offering Yoga Teacher Training – so the question arises, how to choose the right one, fitting to one needs and expectations.
For sure, checking reviews, websites and Facebook pages can help a lot, to get an idea, where and how one will spend a month becoming a Yoga teacher. But in the end, I feel, the most important moment is when I get personal contact with the Yoga school. It should give me a very comfortable and warm feeling and I want to leave with an impression that there are capable teachers. That's why I decided to join Diya Yoga. The beautiful center is very close to the beach and a very yummy restaurant which is providing a balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner – changing every day. As a student I could totally let go and dive deep into my Yoga practice.
I loved to work with all the different teachers of the school. There are different Yoga styles and each of the teachers got a unique way of teaching and bringing light into the mystery of yoga! Part of the Diya Yoga crew is also a great meditation trainer, who teaches many techniques of going more easy and deep into meditation. It is amazing how it brings more and more awareness into the system.
I also loved the theoretical lessons, especially philosophy and methodology with Meera. She is so much open minded, modern thinking but still deeply rooted and self confident woman, that it is just a pleasure to listen here words!
The whole team and the atmosphere which they create, full of light, love, laughter, caring and supporting makes it easy to transform! Every Yoga Teacher Training is super intensive and can go very deep! So it's important to be in a safe atmosphere, where you easy can trust n find a lot of understanding and support!
My personal reflection; After having such a deep longing for Yoga classes n getting a few insecurities cleared, I felt every moment at Diya Yoga like a blessing! I loved a lot the time I spent there and the teachers within the Yoga School. It also clearly brought light into some dark corners of my system and managed to keep them bright!love n gratitude

I highly recommend the Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Course with Meera. I knew about Yoga Nidra before and had a few experiences, but this Training gave me much deeper experience of what it actually is. It was a great mixture of Theorie (Background informations) and Praxis, both being guided and guiding Meditations. You can find easily information about Yoga Nidra online and it seems easy to think "ah, I'll just check it out online", but NOOO, this is not the same!! Meera has a fun and inspiring way of teaching and also spreads light on some common "mistakes" you can make by using a non matching wording etc. If you have the chance, take it!! For me it was a great experience, and after this 5 day workshop I felt able to offer Yoga Nidra Meditation myself wherever I am travelling. Deep grounding work, very valuable!

Meera's yoga teachings come from their heart, knowledge and experience. Her yoga nidra session was very intense but she was always there to support me during the journey of my previous life. She is highly qualified and mixes a wide range of techniques from different counselling methods for her sessions . It has been inspiring to have her as a teacher and I hope to meet her again in the future to be able to learn more from her. Thank you so much.
