    YTTC at Cervera del Maestre in Spain

    PROS Pros: Instruction is great; very good yoga and very good quality of instructors. You learn a lot of interesting and useful things for teaching yoga, as well as for your personal practice. And the food is delicious.... The location is also really good, a self contained Spanish village full of nice people and very close to the coast.

    Mooi ervaring

    CONS Cons: De theorielessen waren voornamelijk monologen van twee uur zittend op de grond. Interessant, maar voor de concentratie en de stijfheid die ontstond in het lichaam was afwisseling (bv bespreken in subgroepjes) beter geweest. Was handig geweest als we van tevoren meer geïnformeerd waren. Bijvoorbeeld over het (avond)programma.

    PROS Pros: Inhoudelijk interessant. Verschillende docenten. Alle aspecten van yoga kwamen aan bod (zoals asana's, chanten, meditatie en filosofie). Ontzettend leuke en hechte groep studenten. Goed eten en accommodatie. Mooi dat we de vrijheid hadden en kregen om in het dorp ook onze eigen ding te doen.

    Amazing experience

    PROS Pros: I loved the location, the small Spanish village is just perfect for a retreat. I loved the quality of the teaching and the lessons we did at the beach! The food was just Amazing. I am not vegan however with the vegan food provided I haven't missed anything at all. I am going back next month to volunteer, I simply fell in love with this experience!

    "I'm so blessed to have taken my 200hour yoga teacher training in Cervera Del Mastre with Gerry as the head instructor. Just over 3 weeks of training I found myself very centered and inspiried. I would do this training all over again with no hesitation. I highly recommend this training for anyone who wants to teach yoga and immerse themselves in the Spain culture! It's incredible and an experience I'll never forget."

    "I attended the course a couple of years ago. It's in a great place. The food cooked by Ela was fantastic. I met some incredible people. I found that Gerry's profound understanding of shiatsu gives him a unique and fascinating take on many aspects of yoga teaching and practice. A great course which I highly recommend."

  • Review by Griet from Belgium

    "The 200 hour teacher training in Spain was satisfying and fulfilling in every single way. It was exactly what I was looking for. The teachers explain in detail how to get safely in and out of each pose and what the correct alignment should be like…. And all that in a very relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Not to mention the food: I have never eaten such healthy, quality food in my entire life. An experience never to forget!"

  • Review by Ana from United Kingdom

    "Gerry's unique esoteric knowledge ties Indian philosophy to the Western traditions, making the theory very interesting and relevant to our own ancient culture. The deep understanding of the chakras and prana taught opened up a different dialogue for me allowing for a truly profound experience. The asana practice was challenging, therapeutic and energizing, and practice took away a wealth of knowledge to improve my practice and help others with. The food, people and location were all wonderful and i highly recommend this course for all those ready to embark on their yoga journey."
