    "Amazing! I wish we were all still there <3"

    WOW! This was such a beautiful experience. I wish it never ended!

    The training was amazing. Definitely tough, but at the same time very doable. I loved the combination of yoga practice, meditation, chanting, and "regular" classes. It was just perfect. I also really LOVED the Asana labs, they were so much fun and so full of information. I learned so much and so many new poses and so many tricks to improve my yoga practice. And, not unimportant, I feel confident to share my knowledge as a Yoga Teacher thanks to these Asana Labs.

    Our lead instructor Sunny McGill was incredibly knowledgeable. Her classes were the perfect amount of challenging and fun and afterwards I always felt so strong and empowered. It was such a joy to start the day with Sunny. And to end the Asana Labs with "Sunny Fun". THANK YOU, Sunny, for all that you've taught us. For your patience, for your wisdom, for your insights, and for your encouragement. I will definitely be doing my 300hrs training with you.

    The location was absolutely beautiful. In the middle of this fairy tale forest, only 15 mins. away from the beach. It was so peaceful, the perfect place for such an intense training. I loved having the time to go for little hikes during the lunchbreaks and evenings. And of course, the sauna, was the best!

    The food was DELICIOUS! THANK YOU, Javier, for preparing such a great variety of delicious meals. Each meal was more delicious than the precious one. Also LOVED the zucchini brownies.

    "Hiiumaa - a magical island retreat with powerful results"

    I was blessed to enter the world of teaching with this amazing group of people. My teachers Max, Adriano, Marta and Kadri are excellent at what they do and are filled with love and passion for both the philosophical and physical practices of yoga. My colleagues are extremely compassionate individuals with diverse backgrounds whom I will never forget and will enjoy working with in the future!

    Thank you Om and Flow for such an outstanding intensive retreat in the beautifully magical nature of Hiiumaa.

    The food was very good, creative, with local ingredients and was entirely vegan.

    The owners of Hõbekala - yoga shalala and accommodations - were very kind, attentive and professional.

    The sauna, the sea and forest were game changers.

    The whole experience was life changing.

    Until next time, namaste!

    "Incredible yogi journey on a fairy island in Estonia "

    The setting and location for the training was simply stunning; and most conducive to a journey of inner reflection and growth. The quality of the teaching was incredibly high; and the different styles and energies provided something for everyone. I consider myself quite a new yogi so was a little intimidated coming here; and it couldn’t have been a more supportive and nurturing environment. I’ll miss pondering life in philosophy class with Max; and meditating in a forest at 7am! The food! Shout out to Markus and Javier for providing plant based heavenly dishes!

    It was an incredible experience. Was challenging to start with but the challenge made it interesting and worth it!

    The schedule was full on, we had loads of meditation, asana labs, philosophy, anatomy and a few additional short classes/courses. Teachers were all different and knowledgable.

    Location was amazing, beautiful views by the seaside and fresh forest air! The food was really nice and healthy, vegan and vegetarian options available.

    It was very interesting to stay with one group of people most of the time, we learnt a lot from each other!

    I have changed a lot in such a short time and I am able to apply the knowledge from the course in my life, which is invaluable!

    I am very grateful to be able to attend this course :)

    "Life changing experience "

    From the moment I arrived I was impressed with everything. From the welcome, to the food, the surroundings, the accommodation.

    It was a difficult three weeks, this is no relaxing retreat! But the experience was invaluable.

    The way you are encouraged to find your voice and your teaching style from day 1 is amazing. No "one box fits all" here.

    The anatomy and philosophy classes were in depth and interesting, the asana labs rewarding.

    Max Romano is a wonderful teacher; applying his knowledge of engineering to the body and meditation. His teaching style is great, and he is encouraging and supportive.

    Marta is an excellent, caring human who clearly pours her heart into these TTCs! Another fantastic teacher with lots of experience and stories to tell.

    The food was amazing, the rooms clean and comfortable. The beach is a walk away (dare you to take a dip!) And everyday you can see the eagles or deer in the surroundings.

    I was lucky that all the other students were amazing people too, we all got on and formed wonderful and emotional bonds. I was sad to leave.

    "Perfect spot for a yoga training/retreat"

    This is an absolutely unbeatable spot for a yoga training, or simply for a retreat in Europe! When I arrived onsite the nature, the campus location and quality of infrastructure were exactly as expected or even beyond.

    The remoteness of the facility away from any temptations only assists for a complete immersion into the subject.

    If you are interested especially in vinyasa, Max will give odds to anyone!

    Fine dining food during the stay was a great complement to the whole adventure!

    I fell in love with the place and I hope to be back there for more events!

    "Total package for a teacher just starting out "

    This training was everything that I needed.

    Curriculum is well structured and organized, we could go through every aspect of Yoga from Anatomy, Asana(practice), teaching methodology, marketing, philosophy.

    Teachers are very caring and attentive, and what I liked the most is that they do follow true spirits of Yoga, understanding our body/mind and practice with knowlege based on that. During Asana lab, we were able to learn how to make pose correctly according to different types of body, which is important for you as a teacher.

    Also,the marketing class was filled with very practical information, which will help you if you are going for teaching after training.

    Even if one is not considering teaching career, this course will help you to understand Yoga in-depth and apply knowledge in your daily practice.

    It's been just over a week since I arrived back home from this Yoga TT. I've spent the last few days digesting every single piece of information I was taught, and what a wonderful training it was. I was luckily prepared to be thrown into 23 days of all things Yoga, an hour of morning mediation followed with a morning practice (Usually a strong practice) then anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, leaving the afternoon for Asana Lab, then followed by another strong practice. Hiiumaa itself is in the middle of nowhere, the occasional bus shop which has all essentials you'll need, but at this TT there was a chef who cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner for us. He was fabulous! Being situated in the forest meant you were able to disconnect from the world, long walks in the trees, the beach wasn't too far out and endless amounts of reflection time if you use your free time wisely. I would 100% recommend this course if you're passionate about Vinyasa and Hatha, it's intense and some days were harder than others but trust yourself and know that you've got this. It's a personal journey and trust the training! Marta, Max and Kadri, thank you all so much! Would love to see you again sometime in the future. All three of you guided me into a passion which has now become a love.

    "I had the best experience with Om & Flow Yoga!"

    The TTC was very well organized and I felt supported from the very first moment! I learned so much in only 3 weeks that I never expected. Both Marta and Max are amazing teachers. Max has so much knowledge and passion for what he does that it was awesome to listen and learn from him. Martas lessons were always fun, I can’t remember a day without a laugh. She always made sure everyone was happy!

    The place was absolutely stunning! It felt like we were in our own little bubble surrounded by nature, which we could explore during our breaks and after dinner. Also the food was simply the best! I can’t remember a day where I didn’t like the food!

    I feel absolutely confident teaching now and I am glad I chose Om & Flow Yoga!

    "life-changing"

    Through the Yoga Teacher Training with Om&Flow I was able to evolve further mentally, physically and spiritually. There was nothing more beautiful than getting up early in the morning and meditating upon the trees of Hiiumaa. We as students were allowed to gain in depth knowledge about the philosophy, ethics, history and anatomy behind Yoga. The daily asana classes were energizing and always filled with opportunities to learn and further our personal practice. After this teacher training I gained the confidence to actually teach Yoga (which I didn’t expect beforehand)! Both Marta and Max were incredibly passionate about what they were teaching and enabling the students to grow the same passion. All meals were vegan and fabulously delicious. The beautiful accommodation was great to relax and let all the input sink in. It’s hard to even comprehend how life-changing this experience was for me!

    "Incredible Experience"

    It is difficult to list all of the ways this Yoga Teacher Training with Om&Flow helped me grow mentally and emotionally. The amount of care and preparation taken by Marta and Max was evident from beginning to end. The practices were challenging while also being accessible and inspiring. The personal attention and detail-oriented instruction helped me break down poses and find my best personal expression of each, which allowed me to find my voice as an instructor. The philosophy classes answered more questions than I knew I had; they motivated me to begin a lifelong study of the history, the practice, and the purpose yoga can have in our relationships with the world and each other.

    In short, this was a life-changing experience. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    "300 hour yoga teacher training "

    The training was held in a magic place, in the middle of the nature with ocean in front of us. I enjoyed morning walks, playing with waves in the ocean during the break, sleep and wake up with the sound of ocean and birds.

    staffs are all very nice, they took great care of us, food was always well prepared and delicious.

    Different teachers with different teaching styles which gave us different perspectives of yoga. We did learn a lot about some advanced asanas, hands-on adjustments and a lot of opportunities to teach.

    A lot of heart opening experiences which has transformed me forever, very grateful for the safe place they created for us, for the amazing teachers who have guided us into this journey of healing and growth.

    "What a journey in Paradise! "

    The time in palomino was one of the most precious experiences I had in my life. What I was allowed to take from the teachers in terms of wisdom and yoga techniques is priceless. Sunny, Carolina and Katie have not only taught with passion, dedication and full commitment, but also shared what they really love. Sunny's in-depth knowledge of asanas and philosophy, Carolina's pranayama and mantras and Katie's creativity and dynamism have made this training a unique experience. Not to mention all the guest teachers and surprises that have brought so much variety into it. I couldn't have wished for better teachers. Palomino is a magical place.

    "Best Teachers 😊 and a lot to say"

    The teachers were amazing! They had such a good energy and they were so caring! Sunny was always there for us and she helped everybody to grow so much! I loved Katies classes, the way how she teaches is really inspiring. Carolina took us further in our Breathing Techniques and helped us, to discover our spirituality more. I'm so thankful that I had these teachers and they all helped me to grow so much as a Yogateacher. I already miss these 3 wonderful persons. You can learn so much from everybody and also the feedback from them helped.

    The stuff of La Sirena was really kind. They serve veggie / vegan Food, which was tasty. It was nice, to be near by the beach. The equipment (yogamats, blocks, strapes) where in a good quality and enough for everybody. As said, there was drinking water 24h.

    "If you have Sunny, Katie and Carolina as your teachers GO!!!"

    Sunny McGill, Carolina Martinez Duran and Katie Dondzilla are fabulous teachers providing a wonderfully diverse teaching approach and style of yoga. If you are open to learning and growing this teacher training will not only help you become a better teacher and deepen your understanding of yoga but it will also help you heal your soul and deepen your connection with yourself. I can not Recomend working with these three people enough! Even if it is not with this training I highly highly recommend finding these teachers. Sunny has a wonderful was of being structured and giving you confidence to push yourself further. Will make you face your demons without being afraid. Katie is incredibly inspiring with her strength, fluid movement and understanding of how her body moves. They all have wonderful personalities as well! The other people in my training were also wonderful! We all came to learn and were open to new experiences. I can not emphasize enough how important this is in a training like this. If you are not ready to be open and learn, don’t come. Other Pros, the food tastes wonderful and the setting is beautiful. You are on the beach and surrounded by nature, you can feel mother natures positive energy as soon as you step foot onto the grounds. Finally the exchange rate from USD to COP is great and there are numerous artists and shops that will make things specifically for you so bring extra money and save some room in your bags!

    "Very good yoga teacher training! "

    I loved the location of the place, where we had pleasure to live - La Sirena. A real paradise! Beautiful Eco Resort right by the ocean. I loved all the amazing stuff working there. The food which was served was also very yummy, beautiful looking and always warm. But for me sometimes not enough. All the workers of La Sirena were very lovely, helpful and made me feel safe and at home ❤️. All the instructors were very good, professional, passionate, eager to help, answer any questions. Course was very intense, but that's obvious looking on schedule...But well balanced! Phisical classes in rotation with theory but also time to relax- sound healing therapy, massages... In general I am very grateful to all the teachers, supportive participants and organizer - Marta, which was always by her phone to answer any questions and guided me from Poland straight to beautiful Palomino :) Beautiful experience, highly recomend!

    "Adventurous yoga training in most stunning Tanzania! "

    Overall experience was great. I enjoyed all practical yoga classes as well as theory, especially philosophy with Sunny.

    I consider myself very lucky to be a student of Sunny and to complete my TTC with her as main trainer.

    She is the best instructor I could ever wish for.

    Her devotion and motivation in in what she does is incredible.

    She is very knowledgeable, attentive, thoughtful and very experienced in teaching.

    She was physically and mentally 100% there for us, every day of the training.

    The way she explained all the alignments and the way she helped us to align each others was mind-blowing. Thanks to her teaching abilities and amazing support and motivation she helped me to improve and go beyond the boundaries. Besides, as a group we had lots of fun together.

    General tip: If you come to do your TTC in Tanzania, PLEASE do yourself a favor and stay couple of more days to explore the country , it has LOT to offer. For me, this was the best yoga experience and best travel experience.

    Such an amazing experience! Sunny is really teaching from her heart, what she gave to us was just so much more than teaching about asana and philosophy.

    The accommodation and food were ok, but not really the best atmosphere for a YTT.

    What I liked about my training was that I was able to do this training as a beginner student. The daily training in meditation and practice was inspiring and educational. I enjoyed the meals overlooking the ocean with my fellow students. I also enjoyed the very individualized programs provided for each student. I really loved making new friends who are my new yoga family. This training will challenge you and prepare you to be an amazing teacher! If you are considering going, you should. This training will be life changing and you will never be the same. You will grow in the best way possible!

    "Well organised and immersive "

    I’ve enjoyed TTC 200 organised by Om&Flow in Palomino - very safe magical coastal location away from current protests in larger cities of Colombia. It felt safe and very tranquil.

    The syllabus was very comprehensively structured and attention from teachers was thorough. Living in the jungle in the cabanas of La Sirena Ecolodge allowed us to fully immerse into the setting. We had amazing vegetarian food on the course prepared specifically for us.

    "I highly recommend to attend this course "

    Here my own experience during this course (subjective and can be different for others)

    - 3 very different teachers (Max, Marta, Kadri) which shows different faces of yoga. Some teachers more into spiritually some more in asanas etc (I loved Marta for the fun I had with her and Max for his talks about spirituality)

    -as a beginner in Yoga I’ve never felt aside of the others even though my level was very low.

    -the place in Palomino was fantastic. Very clean, very beautiful.

    -the food was amazingly good every single day.

    -professional without being to strict or serious. Perfect balance for me.

    -we enjoy all together as a group including the teachers. Though there were teacher I felt they act first as humain being and part of the group as any other students. No differences between us.

    -The course was sometimes a bit hard (many things to learn as a beginner) but I’ve never felt over stress, we had some good fun all together which really helped me to accompany my work in a beautiful way. We are to get a teacher’s certificat but also to enjoy while doing it.

    "An empowering experience"

    My experience at the 200 hour TTC in Palomino, Colombia with Om & Flow Yoga was remarkable. First, our group was blessed to have three very unique instructors and I learned a tremendous amount from each of them: not just about alignment and giving classes, but about yogic philosophy, meditation, nutrition, marketing, etc. as well.

    The food from Marie Noelle and her daughters was fantastic and I so appreciate their hard work to create healthy and delicious meals for us every day.

    La Sirena is an amazing place. I loved staying there and would go back in a heartbeat. It is rustic, but very clean and very in touch with nature in incredible ways.

    I felt so blessed to accompany such a wonderful group of other students. It was truly a beautiful experience to have a community during what has been a very difficult pandemic year! I learned something from everyone.

    As I departed the teacher training, I really felt as though I had the tools to develop my own classes. The instructors (and other students) really helped me feel confident with my own unique teaching style. We had five hours of direct teaching experience, which was monumental. I feel ready to teach a class to any level! I also feel empowered to further my yogic studies.

    To Max, Kadri, Marta and my companions: I am a better person for having taken this training and for meeting you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I also really appreciated having Külli as a reiki instructor - what an experience!!

    "beyond expectations"

    I attended the teacher training in February in Colombia. The atmosphere and support was incredible. I felt comfortable to be myself, make mistakes and learn. The instructors got to know each of us very quickly and our whole group bonded.

    The villa by the sea was filled with bright sunshine and an uplifting breeze. I enjoyed the heat and here was always water with cut fruits to drink to keep us hydrated.

    Marta is a very practical teacher. She challenges you to teach, but also makes you feel comfortable to make your mistakes and learn from them. She also taught us a lot about the business and marketing side of yoga.

    I learnt much more than I expected to. I felt ready to teach as well as strong and healthy leaving the training.

    "Life changing experience! "

    I had the best training I could imagine. Our group was adorable and unit, and teachers were inspiring, warm, helpful and available around the clock. The accommodation was a dream, huge space, own bathroom, close to sea, town, etc! The food is vegetarian, and the kitchen crew is happy to cater to individual requests. There was always water, coffee, tea and snacks available.

    I have grown not only physically but also psychologically. All aspects of Yoga, not only the asanas, have been taught and internalized. Daily meditation, body practice, philosophy and history have helped me to understand many things.

    From the beginning the focus was on becoming a teacher, what I really liked! Guys, it's not a retreat, you will learn how to become a teacher and you have to invest your time. We were allowed to teach from day one. After my TTC I felt 100% ready to step into the world and teach Yoga. I have found my passion and would definitely recommend Om&Flow Yoga to others! My TTC has changed my life!
