Eva Hamilton is a Yoga Alliance certified RYT500 E-RYT200, Yoga Teacher with ten years teaching experience & over 1000 hours of formal training. Her teaching reflects her holistic background. Each class, she seeks a balance between the effort of asana & movement and the surrender of breath awareness, meditation, and relaxation. Her intention in teaching is to craft a supportive & nourishing energy, allowing students to connect with their own inner wisdom. Having previously owned a studio in Canada, Eva's yoga journey has brought her around the world to India, Mexico, France, USA & UK.
Lorraine Lau, E-RYT 200, started teaching yoga professionally in 2005. She has taught over 4,500 classes at PURE Yoga HK in more than 5 years including Group, Privates, Corporate and charity classes. Lorraine was designated to lead a 10 episodes TV program teaching yoga poses representing PURE Yoga shown on East Asia Satellite TV Ltd. She believes balancing the yin & yang is important and passive stretching in Yin classes wins her heart in recent years.
Yaron has been practicing yoga for 28 years, and teaching it for 15 years. He did an 18-month meditation retreat in Zen and Forest Buddhist monasteries in Japan and Thailand. He was healed from “incurable disease” (colitis) by the practice of meditation and scriptures-based yoga (for example: Hatha Yoga Pradipika). Therefore, it is his mission to teach and share his experience so those in need can heal their life. Yaron is a musician and practitioner of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of the love and devotion; he leads Kirtans and Bhajans regularly.

"Something I will repeat again!"
All was a pleasant surprise. During the month we had different extra class I really enjoyed (Sanskrit, singing, restorative...), I personally really appreciate all the anatomy and philosophy knowledge that we could get from some classes and the way to bring them to us, all for a really cheap price. And of course the atmosphere was great, lot of love, comprehensive people, ready to help and listen to you, lot of laughs and many emotions came out, many of us really had made big developments in them prospective of life. Strong practice when needed to revitalise the day. What can I say, thank you, great job all and loved it 💜

"Nirodha School - not as good as advertised"
Communication with Yaron before the course was very good. The brekkie that's served every day is yummy. Akari is an inspiring teacher and Liat tries her best to accomodate for different levels and moods of the class.
The topics are varied and interesting, covering most of what needs to be learned. The manual is a good guide but sometimes confusing.
Often after class, kirtans are offered which you can join for free. In the edn, you will lead an one-hour class by yourself which is good training.

"Magic is happening"
I have so much gratitude for lovely teachers who gave us time, shared knowledge and experiences. There is special place in my heart for you, for Ko Pha-ngan and for people I met. I admire you do everything with Love, making sure everyone is heard and feeling good. Daily meditation gave me so much, like a shower for the Soul :) Love being open for singing Kirtan, sharing circle and every topic in Yoga. Gonna miss lovely breakfasts prepared by beautiful Angel with the biggest smile! Accommodation was great, close to shala and beach, only 20 min by motorbike to Tong Sala for shopping and Food Court. Absolutely great place with a lot of potential, love, carry, awesome teachers!!!!

"Greatest Experienced ever. Learned a Lot so many ways"

"Professional and cordial teacher training - perfect match!"
Eva and Liat are amazing teachers, with a big heart but they are highly professional and dedicated in instructing their students as well. Our group was just perfect (also regarding the size: 10 pax) and I enjoyed every single minute and I learned a lot and also grew in a spiritual way.
Yaron is a commited person who wants you to feel like at home and he organized also things like movie nights or singing circles (this was no must, but an option) - he is a passionate singer and guitar player himself. For the first half of the training we practice the meditation in the morning at the Mandala house and for the rest of the time we meditated at the beach, which was wonderful.
I didn't stay at the Easy Life Bungalows, but just next to it at Haad Yao Over Bay and I was really happy - very nice bungalow with a great view!
from Great Britain, March 2019
Loved the meditation, mix of yoga philosophy and styles of yoga, hatha/vinyasa/yin.
Thank you to all the teachers for sharing their knowledge, Yaron, Eva and Liat and to everyone I was on the course with. It was a very special experience. Thanks!

"Fabulous Yoga Teaching Training"
Yaron and Gabriel compliment each other in their teaching. I appreciated the effort given to ensure people were enjoying this great experience. The knowledge, skills, meditation and mindfulness learnt during the month enables you to leave with a strong personal practise or be a well equipped Yoga teacher. I highly recommend gaining your Yoga teaching certification from Nirodha. Yaron practises what he preaches and sets a great example of Yoga
from Thailand, September 2018
The teachers provided a vast range of knowledge and expertise through the many facets of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and embodiment. A great space was provided for practice everyday with a beautiful breakfast each morning. Went in just hoping to renew my own practice and found that I really enjoy teaching and sharing this wonderful experience through yoga. Would recommend to anyone looking to see beautiful Koh Phangan, study, and practice.

Having the opportunity to be immerse on this yoga teacher training course has been a great journey, not only to gain knowledge about the practice and your techniques, but also to understand myself better - physically and mentally.
Yaron is a great person, instructor and musician as well, with lots of experiences and teachings to share. He introduced the mindfullness practice into all aspects of yoga, which affords an amazing understanding on the importance of being present - and peaceful - all time. And if you need to deal with anything on a daily basis he is always supportive.
The course itself is very good, complete. Holistic, maybe, it's a better definition. Meditation and classes - theory, anatomy (thank you Eva) and practices - gives us a wide comprehension of all yoga aspects.
During some nights, we had beaufiful kirtans on the studio, so nice!
If you can, I strongly recommend you enjoy a day meditation, organised by Yaron. It is on sundays, starting 4 am and finishing around 5:30 pm. There are breaks, it's such a great experience!
The yoga studio is very well located (next to beautiful beach), fresh, spacious and clean. About the brunch (vegan/vegetarian) offered to us, it is just delicious.
Another very good point was the accomodation, that was just 5 min on foot from the yoga studio and next to restaurants, seven 7 and beach. The bungalows were comfortable, with a beautiful view from the sea. The staff also was very supportive and the wi fi used to work well.

I'm very thankful to our main teachers of March training : lovely Liat, inspiring Akari and kind Yaron ! Also every beautiful persons that be part of this month for some class hour, and the beautiful women who made our delicious breakfast everyday !!
Accomodation at EasyLife Bungalow is quite nice with an adorable owner family, 8minutes by walk from the yoga studio and 5minutes from a 7/11 and the beach with good restaurants.
I found the training itself very complete, many topics was aborded and we went as deep as needed in the most important ones.
The course was very well built, so beginners like me could easily follow it.
Also, we had the opportunity to go to wonderfull kirtans manytime each weeks !
I really enjoy this powerfull mounth of transformation for myself ! I don't regret it at all :)
Thank you <3

This training has been a great opportunity to reconnect with truth and reality resizing to its right measure daily routines and western sort type of spiritually impoverishing lives. I recommend it for providing together with the physical practice a wide philosophical perspective of yoga.
The training is oriented to teaching but is also suitable for people like me wishing just a full inmersion on the yoga world with the added value of an incomparable framework of sun and sand.
