"More than yoga training"
I went into this course expecting to focus on yoga asanas and mediation for the most part, which we most definitely did, but I also got so much more. The teachers were amazing, the self exploration was priceless and the experience was something I'm more than grateful for and will never forget.

"A Miracle Month in Koh Phangan"
As a fitness professional I went to Luna expecting a yoga program with a basic anatomical understanding...and got way more than I bargained for! What I received was a highly polished, professionally presented anatomy and kineseology, expert coaching on instructing asana and teaching yoga, yoga philosophy to blow (and reframe) my mind, next level meditation instruction, and an emotional and spiritual awakening. All in a beautiful setting with a like-minded group of students and a supportive community.
Tal, Anu, and Naami are brilliant at what they do - each teaching in their own style that compliments the others. The course was well designed and structured and I can't say enough about how pleased I am that I chose Luna for my first TTC.

"Séjour fabuleux bien au delà de mes attentes !"
Un programme complet et varié.
Professeurs incroyables et cours passionnants.
Le cadre est également fabuleux.
Une expérience hors du commun !
I was volunteering at Gaia for the last two months, and it surely changed my life. The yoga classes are carried out by carefully selected teachers. Tal, one of the founders of Gaia has so much knowledge and experience, she really knows what she is doing when she is giving a class, working on your body and its muscles and lines.
The rest of the classes and sessions are lovely, from martial arts, to ecstatic dances to sound healing, this place is much welcomed food for the soul, the body and the heart. It is run with loving warm heart, carried out like a real family.
I have nothing but positive remarks for Gaia.
It will always have a place in my heart.
Gaia is located near the beach, surrounded by palm trees and beautiful environment. The atmosphere is very calm and people working or volunteering are just amazing! Classes are diverse and every weeks schedule add something new. Also there are few classes which are constant and thought by professional yoga instructors. I was very happy to spend 1.5 months going to Gaia and next time I'm in Phangan, I will return!
This was just the most amazing experience!!!
I could not have asked for more. Between the kindness of everyone present, to the benefits provided, to the most energetic environment imaginable. The only sad part was that I had to leave! I feel truly blessed to be a part of the team. Thank you so much for everything. The classes were perfect, the food was delicious, and the vibes were electrifying. :)
