"An amazing experience awaits you, in Coudures, France!"
The experience was nothing short of amazing. Sunshine teaches with such passion and knowledge, she is truly an unbelievable guide.
The curriculum has been carefully thought through and left me with everything I was looking for. Should you ever have any extra questions or concerns, Sunshine was always willing to give you time to ask - and she continued to make that clear through the entire stay.
You are in good hands with this family - as they have worked out a great system to make sure the students have exactly what they need. You can feel the passion, love and safety within this home.
If you are already thinking this is your fit, you need not look any further - you've found it!

"Beautiful and profound Experience"
Sunshine is a very patient and friendly teacher who combines the mediation of bodily yogic knowledge and spiritual knowledge in a very plausible way. Always open for discussion and with playful exercises in between.
Incredible yummy food, beatiful lake and sourroundings for a meditative walk. The house too has a nice vibe.

"8 days retreat"
I was happy to arrive at a time when I could join in the group of 5 students who are in teacher training with Sunshine. Beautiful family; very easy to be around. There is plenty of space and time in the house and the outdoors to find a quiet place alone if you enjoy this (I do). Sunshine's classes are a perfect balance of challenge and calmness, philosophy and self-teaching/freedom. Glen's cooking is incredibly delicious. Simple fruit and tea for snacks at any time of day. Really special, beautiful old house.
I feel refreshed and relaxed after leaving. I learned from everyone there. Thank you.

After only 3 month practice of yoga i decided to register to the YTT with Sunshine.
I highly recommand to anyone from beginner to advanced to follow this training and also if you are french-speaker her english is clear to understand.
Before to come i was a complete beginner in yoga i even didn't know how to do the sequence of sun salutation.
Finally i improve a lot my personnal pratice and it was a perfect start for me and at the end i was able to teach a truc classe of yoga.
It was a huge surprise to feel how could i improve my own practice in only one month and she gave me enough knowledge for to have the ability to sharing with people.
After few weeks i can said, her guidance was really precious for me, and i miss those meditations, asana practices, knowledges and good energy that she will share with us.
Also with Sunshine there is no spiritual brainwash, she will give you the information then you decide your way...
So even you are beginner don't hesitate to come and if you are advanced you will discover an holistic practice of yoga with someone who love what she do.

I am very grateful with Sunshine, she was a excellent teacher, she showed us the true origins of Yoga, the place is really magical, it makes you feel peace, prosperity and love. The experience was unique, and in addition to learning to be a yoga teacher, the experience is more stronger, you know many beautiful people, who become your friends for life. Thanks to this YTT I was able to find my true passion and find this love to share with my students, is something that Sunshine has in mind all the time. Thanks a lot.

The course beautifully illustrated that yoga is so very much more than yoga asanas and I really came to understand the sense of unity offered by a yogic life. Sunshine (Ana Ross) is a very inspiring teacher with a wealth of experience and insight. She leads wonderful flowing yoga classes and offers inspirational teachings and concepts that are both uplifting and thought-provoking. Some of the experiences I had during the meditation sessions I know will stay with me for the rest of my life. After successfully completing the course, I am excited for the future in a way that I have not experienced before, and for that I am hugely grateful.
