"My Teacher Training Experience"

Om Shanti feels like a second home to me now - a place I am already desperate to return to after just one week back in England! The course was brilliantly executed, all of the teachers and karma yogis are incredible, supportive and beautiful people and the atmosphere in the community was perfect. I healed a great deal and overcame many issues during my 31 days at Om Shanti, and I learnt so much more than just how to be a yoga teacher. I have grown as a person and found support, guidance, kindness and understanding from everyone around me on every step of my journey. I will never forget my experience - everyday was a special day in which I discovered new things about myself and was surrounded by compassion, love and authentic words of advice. The food was incredible and I can't express how grateful I was to receive such amazing meals three times a day. The house is beautiful and the grounds are a haven. Not to mention the weather! I felt completely safe, secure and at home in Om Shanti and truly part of the community - I would love nothing more than to return and serve as a karma yogi to give back some love to say thank you for all that was sent my way. I enjoyed the small amount of time we spent doing karma yoga each day as this allowed me to give just a little back to the community - whether I was scrubbing toilets or enjoying gardening with the heat on my back, I longed to serve in any way that allowed me to show my huge gratitude towards everyone at Om Shanti <3

"Thank you! "

I did my Yoga Teacher Training at comunidad Om Shanti in Barcelona. Thank you David and Romina for the most beautiful experience. So much respect for you both! Your perspective on how to live is inspiring. You made me a happy yogi on all the aspects of yoga. The location is also just lovely and I cannot be more grateful. Hope to see you again.

"A perfect place "

I loved the location, to be a 15 minute walk away to a small town, 20-30 min walk to a train station and an hour by train to Barcelona was perfect for a yoga teacher training. The mountains around us, so many nature walks you can do and the building is truly perfect. It felt like my home and it always will. I learnt a lot, the instructors are very kind knowledgeable and truly love what they do. the food is the best food you’ll eat!

"Life changing"

Doing my 200 yttc with comunidad om shanti in Barcelona was one of the best decisions of my life. Over the month we became a real family and om shanti was our home. The training was exceptional, the teachers are full of knowledge and were constantly inspiring us. The location is stunning and the food is healthy and delicious. I would highly recommend for anyone to go there.

"Best experience "

It was the best place I lived so far, better than I expected.

This is exactly how I imagine heaven on earth : people dancing, hugging, singing, amazing food, gratitude towards life, peaceful place, lovely nature, love circle, no judging attitude, no violence towards yourself or others, accepting differences, patience for everything, not rushing, silence, yoga and meditation...celebrating life.

A place where being YOU is enough.

Here I felt right away ,,I am in the right place,,.

My favourite joke was :who do I need to kill so I can stay here longer?🤭

I am definitely coming back. 🙏🤗

"Real people offering a real experience with real yoga"

What impressed me the most was the teachers and staff. How genuinely engaged they where in the practice and deeply rooted in the spiritual tradition of yoga. This permeated their teaching and their being in a way that made my stay in OmShantiBacelona and practicing yoga and meditation a restful, supportive and rejuvenating experience that has stayed with me since. The food was wonderful, tasty, rich, fresh and made with love. I had a wonderful big room with balcony and mountain view that I enjoyed very much.

I cannot praise all of the experience enough. A beautiful location. The people were warm and extremely friendly, felt like one big family. The yoga, mediation and food was more than excellent. One of my best experiences ever. Didn't want to leave.

"This is a special place for transformation"

The teaching is a really high standard. The community is coming from the heart. I felt supported and nourished. The food was great and perfect to support the practices. As soon as I arrived a felt a shift starting and left feeling much lighter when I left. The birdsong and quiet was also lovely. The people are really nice and it’s the first community I’ve come across that’s coming from the heart. The teachings offer something for everyone and it’s very varied. Theres so much on offer that if you don’t feel like doing something it felt ok to miss it. There’s a lot to be learned here whatever level your practice is at. I would suggest trying to do it all to get the most out of it if only going for a few days. After just 4 days I feel fit and my energy was really high when I left. I felt connected to the place and the people and I’ll be going back again for sure. Thank you everyone at OM Shanti 🙏🌈😊

"Life-changing experience"

Paradise on earth. The moment you walk in to the gate of this beautiful commune-based-retreat-castle, you feel completely welcome and at ease. I thought the schedule had quite some free-time, but it fitted perfectly. The food was absolutely perfect, always plenty vegan options and fresh (sometimes from there own garden), perfectly cooked. With special thanks to Joktan <3. Every teacher had there own energy and they complemented each other, with fun, spirituality, asana's, mantra's and other forms of meditation. You receive as much growth and love as you let through, this loving space makes you want to come back every year.

"amazing experience"

Om Shanti is a magical place. such an incredible experience. time seems to slow down almost immediately and relaxing seeps into your bones quickly. everyone that works/volunteers there was so warm and welcoming. the food was surprisingly amazing. the meditations, breath exercises, and yoga classes were top notch. I will definitely be back. only thing they need to continue working on is the small details such as more furniture for sitting and relaxing inside, plumbing fixtures, etc. this is minor issue and doesn't take away from the overall once in a lifetime experience

"perfect place for self-reflection, a harmonious atmosphere"

Location of OmShanti home is wonderful, away from the city noise. House was spacious, full of light and kind energy, surrounded by the forest - a perfect place for self-reflection, detox, a complete recharge with sunshine and love. There were few yoga and meditation instructors, so everyone of us could find a common language for guidance to inner self and to balance of self with the outer world. A big part of the experience depends on yourself, but OmShanti made me feel at home and at peace with myself very quickly, i left with more light and love in my heart. I hope to be back one day. Thank you, Peace and Love to everyone.

"Bonding with my daughter"

My daughter and I were looking to spend some time together before she is off to Singapore for a gap year. We chose Omshanti coz of its location easy to get to and arrival/departure dates were flexible. We both felt in love with the place instantly when we got there as well the staff around us were very warming and welcoming. My daughter is not 100% into yoga but she enjoyed the nature, fresh air and delicious vegan food. As for me, yoga classes were great , a big gratitude to Boris, Davina and the lovely lady ( sorry forgot her name) they all brought something amazing to the class. I learnt new techniques/spiritual side as well and love the meditation before bed time. Also a big thank you to Rashid and Evan for taking us to and from the station. Thanking Evan for the trek showing us the old church and waterfall . Lastly I love the delicious moreish cacao balls made by Boris. I highly recommended it. It was so popular that it was gone so quickly. Also thank you Davina for the wonderful massage. My daughter and I spent a precious quality time together. We did not argue at all which was great ha ha ha

Adorei a comida, apesar de não ser "Allan you can eat" pois a comida é dividida entre os hóspedes e funcionários e por vezes é pouca quantidade. A qualidade do yoga e dos workshops é muito acima da média, vale a pena pelo yoga.

A casa esta numa localidade linda, e é possível fazer passeios a pé muito divertidos.

"Very warm and peaceful experience "

Lovely pace, warm and welcoming, plenty of space as well as structure. Very much appreciated the spiritual / self connection focus of the yoga, and also challenging enough physically.

Truly fabulous massage from Alba. Again, a great mix of technical and spiritual.

Davina also excellent as yoga teacher - not on the list so may not be qualified ? but really very good.

"Spiritual and heart-opening"

Om Shanti is a special retreat centre as it provides with more spiritual guidance rather than yoga classes only. It is much more like a family, meditating and sharing spiritual practices together. It is definitely recommended if you are looking to connect with yourself and others through those practices. Food was absolutely delicious!

"Beautiful place close to Barcelona "

Omshanti is a lovely community, everybody was super nice and relaxed. Yoga was great, and the food was simply amazing. The surrounding are nice to explore, and there is plenty of free time to go for a walk or relax. This will be very different from many other retreats, as you will live in a community, there's really no privacy and you'll feel completely detached from your everyday life. It was a little bit of a shock at the beginning, but in a couple of days my brain just switched into "relax" and I loved the experience. I think it's something everybody should try at least once. All in all, a great experience, and I would be happy to come back.

I have spend almost 4 days at Omshanti and had a beautiful experience there. Not only it is located just under a forrest, and i could have a hike everyday but also the food and the staff are very welcoming and giving. I decided go there for my birthday and the staff and my super nice co-retreaters baked a cake for me. I just came back and feel restored and happy that I went.

"Wow from an Irish Girl connecting with her truth"

I had the most wonderdul 4 day retreat with Om Shanti in January 2019. The location is absolutely stunning,the house and surroundings are amazing and well maintained. Its so peaceful and quiet. Staff were super friendly and helpful with an abundance of experience with yoga and meditation. It really is a lovely community of like minded people. The food was out of this world. There wasn't one meal I didn't like. Plenty of options for food,vegan, vegetarian and dairy/gluten free. There is plenty of yoga and meditation classes but there is alot of free time allowed to explore or to have your own quiet time and do as you like. English spoken to very high standard. Well worth the cost. I learned invaluable lessons that I will take with me forever and I will definitely visit again. I am closer to being at one with my true nature and my heart is wide open. Thank you to all and om shanti, I had a wonderful time. Ommmmmmmmm.

"A wonderful, peaceful, kind break"

Om Shanti is the most wonderful place and I’m so grateful I got the opportunity to go there. The landscape is beautiful and the owners and volunteers are so kind and attentive. The food was incredible, colourful and plentiful. The schedule was perfect, allowing plenty of time to work on yoga and media techniques as well as free time to relax or hike around the beautiful area. The house is gorgeous and has lots of character. The highlight for me was the daily workshops which were so special.

"Mind blowing"

I booked this place on a whim. Wow, I'm so grateful I stumbled upon it. For anyone wanting to reconnect with yourself, or nature - the surrounding mountains and walks are incredible - this is heaven on earth.

Rather than dynamic western practice with 2min meditation tagged on at the end, there was a heavy emphasis on spiritual, holistic yoga. I didn't miss the former as this nudged me into new territory. I've returned home so relaxed and happy. It’s been the most intense, beautiful experience.

Then there's the house itself. I'd come here alone for it. It's all lofty ceilinged rooms with sunlight pouring in, rugs, and grandiose brown antique furniture.

The place is 400 years old and oozes character. Even the doors are handsome and ornate, I couldn't stop admiring them!

The beds are comfy, heaving with duvets. Everything so clean. There were cosy wood burning fires and radiators humming away. I didn't need my hotwater bottle.

To me, the experience seemed generous & “value for money” compared to other places I looked at. I could easily have spent similar on accommodation at a B&B - without the nonstop flow of food and yoga and meditation workshops.

Finally, those vegan meals - LOVED every single one o them.

My review is gushing, I know, but I can’t give this place and these brilliant people who run it a bad word. They’ve moved me to the core, they're fabulous. I'll be back.

Huge thanks Om Shanti xx

"A peaceful gem in the Catalonian mountains "

We just finished a 4-day retreat with Comunidad Om Shanti over the Christmas period. We have been amazed at how welcoming all staff is there, and want to thank David, Romina and all the hard-working volunteers for all their efforts to make our stay a very memorable one.

The house is very picturesque and full of old Spanish charm, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The location is quiet and very convenient for trekking activities and reconnecting with nature.

The food provided daily was varied and delicious, as well as quite creative. There wasn't a single meal where we didn't want to try everything!

There was a daily activity programme including yoga, meditation y other workshops and crafts, and we loved to participate in all of them, due to the enthusiasm and kindness of the teachers. The last day we decided to have a massage as well, and we are very thankful to Joyce's kindness and professional massage, she's a very accomplished masseuse.

Overall it was a fantastic experience and we would love to return in the future. Highly recommended to anyone seeking inner and outer peace and serenity, in beautiful surroundings, and within a very nurturing community.

Thank you Comunidad Om Shanti!

"Wasn’t what I thought it would be but took some positives "

I was looking for a break from work as Work has been super stressful, pushing me beyond my limits. The main things for me was to relax, re-energise and get back to myself.

At Omshanti there were many things I loved:

- the food was fresh,healthy, vegetarian/vegan, delicious and abundant

- David stood out to me as an instructor, he led my favourite meditation and yoga experience of my stay and I thought he had lovely energy.

- the scenery surrounding the house was unbelievably beautiful, and there are opportunities to go for peaceful walks in the sunshine.

- I would never have visited this town if it wasn’t for this resort and it was really a treat and so different to the fast paced city life I am used to in London

- I loved the workshop where we were paired up and used each other’s bodies to do the poses. I realised it had been some time since I’d connected with anyone in that way and it broke down a few barriers for me.

- it was surprisingly warm because of the heaters despite reviews that had said otherwise

- comfortable bed

A beautiful home filled with the most positive, caring and loving energy. The food prepared by the team was delicious and refreshing. I slept away from the house in the Yurk, was a rewarding and truly accomplishing stay. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thankyou you to every beautiful soul I met here, from teachers to other guests, my short time was everything i needed for that moment in my journey. I will be back for longer next time, 4 days wasn't nearly enough. Love and happiness, always.

This was my first yoga retreat and I was really pleased!! The accommodation is beautiful, the ambience is tranquil and the location breath-taking, words can’t really do it justice. The whole energy in the house is grounding and the staff as a whole are very warm, welcoming and helpful, I loved the schedule its perfectly planned; initially I thought it was going to be too much but it wasn’t at all, you can take part in as much as you need to, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; the food is fresh, wholesome and nourishing and every meal time was a delight!

The vision and dedication of the Om Shanti community is admirable, they’ve created a very special place indeed!! I think I’ve found my re-set place in Europe!! I’ll definitely be returning!!

Being part of a family that loves and supports you.. A place I will always remember, and hope to visit again. I have learnt so much in the month of the teacher training. The teachers are filled with endless amounts of knowledge and compassion. They strive to see you grow which I found very important in such an intense course. The food which was made by the karma yogis on a daily basis was always amazing.The location is exactly what you want if you want to have time to yourself and be still. I am very grateful to have had experienced this course with such amazing beings. I will always have a place in my heart for all the teachers, karma yogis and sisters that were on this journey with me. I highly encourage you to take your yoga path at OmShanti =]

I loved the atmosphere in the place. The volunteers welcome you with so much warmth that you immediately feel at home.

Yoga classes are only in the mornings, but it's quite powerful and a great way to start the day. The morning follows with free time to go hiking and discover the beautiful locations in the surroundings. Afternoons are chilled, with different workshops taking place, which was nice for diversity.

I absolutely adored the volunteers, the other guests, the house (super beautiful, clean and well maintained), the food (which is made with so much love!)...

"An Absolutely Amazing Experience "

This was my first yoga retreat and I must say my experience at Om Shanti was better than I could have ever expected. From the moment I walked in the door I felt a wave of love and peace wash over me. All the volunteers there are amazing and accepting people. You are treated as a family member from the second you arrive. The house was old and beautiful. It felt very peaceful and there were many places to relax and hangout. Everything was sparkling clean and I felt very comfortable. The food was incredible. Everything homemade at the house. I am vegan and they were happy to accomodate my dietary needs. The yoga and meditation sessions were very healing and relaxing. The workshops were informative and very useful. The house is surrounded by mountains and there are many beautiful hikes, such as a cave and waterfall. I spent one of the sunny days laying in the outdoor hammock and hiking and the rainy day I spent in the amazing living room reading and painting. I connected instantly with the other guests and felt like a big family. This experience was incredible and will stay with me forever. I wish I could have stayed longer than 4 days. I hope to return to Om Shanti in the near future!

This place was magical. The scenery was incredible and the people were magical. I have never felt more at home. I really enjoyed the yoga- I typically practice a power vinyasa style but here I learned a lot more about yoga Nidra a slightly slower and more purposeful flow. I really enjoyed learning and I was exposed to far more meditation than ever before which I am tankful for.

I absolutely enjoyed my 4 days at OmShanti and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to reconnect with yourself in a beautiful place with beautiful and loving people around! We started our days with a session of yoga and meditation followed by a delicious breakfast. After breakfast or lunch we normally went for a 2-3h hike in the mountains (amazing views and so much to discover!). In the afternoon there was always a very interesting workshop - every day it was different - relaxation, yoga anatomy, meditation...

I met some amazing people, the atmosphere was great and all homemade meals were delicious. I really hope I will be able to come back again soon!

Thank you so much for this lovely experience OmShanti Team!

"Loved loved loved it"

From arriving at this most spectacular buildings in a breath taking location, this when experience was fantastic. I an new to yoga but that didn't matter, there was a mixture of abilities but as you are told this is your own personal journey. The team are welcoming, warm and very experienced. It literally feels like home within a few hours. I met some fantastic people I will stay in touch with. I have to mention the food. How they managed to produce such high quality, tasty, healthy food in abundance everyday I dont know. Never had a bad me and we all couldn't wait to eat and refuel on the healthy offerings. I told Sarah and Boris on many occasions they must write a cookbook, I know we would have all bought one. I will continue with my yoga and meditation journey and have since I left a few days ago. Totally inspiring, experienced, welcoming lovely people in a setting that will literally leave you staring in disbelief. I can't wait to return but for longer next time.

"Just go!"

If you're thinking about going, go. If you're thinking about going for 4 days, go for 8!

Everything about this experience was bliss.

The building is so beautiful, with plenty of spots to relax and unwind.

The meals are delicious, filling, nutritious and inventive.

The yoga space is on the top floor with great light and views into the trees.

The people at Omshanti are highly skilled, passionate and generous with sharing their knowledge.

Thank you Omshanti xx

"Amazing retreat"

This was my first experience at a yoga retreat and I didn’t know what to expect before coming here.

I had the most incredible time. The food was delicious, very comfortable beds and lots of great chilling out areas meant I was able to completely relax and connect with myself on this trip. The morning yoga was amazing and I really enjoyed the workshops. The surrounding nature is beautiful and there are lots of walking trails to explore. We had a lot of free time between organised activities which suited me.

"Life detox"

One of the most amazing experiences I’ve had. The team were incredibly warm and welcoming. It was really well organised, with the daily schedule in reception, but still chilled. I enjoyed the great selection of veggie dishes for every meal plus the lovely company and roaring fire.

Although there different teachers each day, it was always Hatha and each extended it uniquely. I learned more breathing and meditation techniques, like yoga nidra. Best part was the Spring Equinox celebration, loved it!

"A life reset"

OmShanti for me was not a retreat, but rather a coming back home. From the moment I arrived, I felt just love, compassion and acceptance by both the fellow guests and volunteers. Love just oozes from all corners of this place via the classes, food and talks. It was the perfect place to embrace the inner and outer stillness that I was looking for. The volunteers are real people who work continuously with grace and devotion for the home and the community. I didn't know what I was looking for when I booked the retreat, but most definitely found it while I was there. Thank you, OmShanti, for the work you're doing in our community by spreading love and peace. I truly hope our paths cross again soon.

"Perfect retreat for yoga and relaxation"

- The people: the instructors and everyone in the house were so kind and always willing to help, very welcoming. It really felt like I was home!

- The location: this was an incredible highlight for me, the house is a fantastic place, always clean and very spacious, common areas had fireplaces and one could simply enjoy the views and the nature around the house or go for hikes with great nature all around!

- The food: an amazing array of delicious home made vegetarian food. I couldn't believe when I tried so many different meals, I was really surprised by the variety and most importantly the quality of the food, ranging from soups, home made bread and fruits. I simply loved it!

- The yoga and meditation classes: the amount of time spent on yoga and meditation were absolutely on point. We practised different types of yoga and this made the experience really enriching.

This has been the first time I participated in a retreat like this and I felt the time I spent was incredibly worth. With no hesitation I recommend Omshanti to anyone who wants to experience a unique retreat that combines yoga, meditation and free time, always surrounded by great people and nature. A massive thanks to Boris, Sarah, Ana, Ivan, Joyce, Janneke and April for being so amazing. I'd love to come back!

"Magical place full of love and light "

Om Shanti is a home away from home, where you will be surrounded with unconditional love and extra care from all the teachers and yogis there. The house is amazing - it’s a big medieval house dating back to 16th century in the middle of rustic nature, full of incense aroma and Ganesha paintings. Food is so amazing that you can eat your fingers off, and followed by some nice chat in front of the fireplace. Carlos is always up to show you some lovely treks in the neighborhood, so that you can go for a walk on your own as well. This place is highly recommend for all looking for peace, harmony, love, deepening yoga practice and enjoying high quality veggie food, and life in general! I still remember the taste of mijo bread that Xenia cooked for us - Yammi! Guys, miss you all and hope to have a chance to meet one more time! Sending much love!

"A loving & welcoming home away from home :) "

This retreat is the perfect place to relax and recuperate - As soon as I arrived at the beautiful house in its stunning surroundings I felt at home. This house is bursting with Love and joy, you can feel it straight away.

The community of people that run this place are just beautiful humans inside and out and are extremely accommodating. The yoga and meditation sessions were very attentive as the group was small. The food delicious and with great variety and the walks into the forest were just perfect.

This is the ideal place to come to get away from it all, take some you time and connect with nature. The schedule is enough but not full on so plenty of time to nap/read/walk/chat ect.

Overall a great experience and amazing value for money!

Thank you OM Shanti for your warm hospitality! :)

"The place is magical "

Everything was perfect. The house which is from the 11th century (!) is just so beautiful and it makes the whole experience even more special. The location - in the middle of nature - is just a blessing. Everyone is extremely nice and they make you feel as part of a family. Yoga practice is great but it’s beginners levels (which for me was perfect) but if you’re a pro you may find it too easy. The food is vegan and super delicious; they cook with love. The workshops are very interesting.

Overall just perfect experience. Highly recommend this place.

Also walking in nature is nice to do. I eat like a queen, all vegetarian/vegan, the food is cooked from fresh herbs from the garden. I enjoyed the yoga classes and meditation. they are accessible, but also knowledgeable.

"Most beautiful house in an amazing location with lovely ppl"

I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the house and around the property. The building is huge and located in a remote area. There are plenty of hiding spots when you don't feel like socialising and plenty communal areas if you seek company. The vibe in the home is pretty relaxed and everyone seeks to have a good time. The food was excellent. Ever day the yoga and meditation sessions are run by a different person so you get to experience different teaching skills.

"Lovely and great"

David has managed (together with his wife) to create a real nice environment for a great yoga and meditation experience. Beautiful setting. Many different trainers, which is nice. Positive attitude and atmosphere. David is a humble soft spoken person who radiates wisdom, although he would not acknowledge that. Fact that they also organize walks, have massage etc adds to the experience.

This is a basic place, do not expect luxury. The luxury is the setting and the people. And the beds are good enough :-)

"BEST place for 200hrs Hatha yoga teacher Training!"

When I first arrived at the community center I must have been sleeping, because after 4 weeks of the yttc I am awaken and aware of all the beauty life has to give us. Being able to be present at all moments. Comunidad Om Shanti is truly the most amazing place I have ever been to. All of the teachers are beautiful souls, are extremely qualified and speaking and listening only from their hearts. I have learned so much during the hatha yoga teacher training, more than I could ever wish for (and I cannot even begin to explain, you have to experience for yourself!). I instant felt a deep connection to every heart and soul during the yttc and now I feel part of this beautiful family. Really a lifetime experience, thank you! Hari Om!!

Janka Nölle

"Most amazing experience I've ever made!"

The YTTC at OM Shanti was an unforgettable experience! All the people who live at Om Shanti are so amazing, warm hearted and nice. I felt welcome fro the moment I arrived and it didn't change. There was such a strong feeling of community, love and being a family that I have never experienced before! Every meal, every activity we did was feeling home.

The house and its location are incredibly beautiful, couldn't believe it for the first few days. There is so much space, beautiful nature and a vibe that couldn't be more positive.

The classes were really nice, well organized and structured focussing on all the most important topics. I learnt so much in these 4 weeks that after them I actually felt ready to teach, which seemed impossible before I started. You feel that they really put so much thought and love into the YTTC!

I feel like I grew so much at Om Shanti, on every possible level of life! I would really recommend this YTTC to anyone who wants to have an excellent experience getting deeper into the world of Yoga, Meditation, community living!

"The perfect retreat to look after your body, mind and soul"

I liked it very much that each of the volunteers running the practices have their own style so that makes every experience very enriching and diverse. They usually focus in the spiritual side of yoga which for me was eye-opening and very much appreciated.

The food is amazing, so nourishing, you can tell is prepared with so much love every day.

The schedule is also perfect - you start the day with meditation and yoga before a delicious breakfast. Then you have time to either chill out or go for a hike in the surrounding area - there're different routes to the river, to a small waterfall and the caves. Lunch is again amazing and you can have it in the sun if the weather is nice. Time for a nap, or perhaps you want to treat yourself to a massage. There's always a workshop before dinner, and the evening meditation afterwards.

It's a big house located in a hill with view to the mountains in the opposite side. The town is a 20 min stroll in case you need to buy something.

I totally recommend this retreat.

Totally enriching experience to be surrounded by a group of supportive and open minded people immersed in nature. The schedule was perfectly balanced and I left feeling renewed and restored.

"Very nice experience"

I really enjoyed my stay at Om Shanti. The environment invites to forget about daily life back home. The people are very nice and open-minded. There is an relaxing atmosphere. I didn't have any yoga experience. I enjoyed the classes. They explain the concepts of yoga and they pay attention to perform the asanas in a good way. They correct you, if needed. They give advise to make the poses more comfortable or more intense. I liked their approach. It didn't matter which level you have. The house is very cosy and in a beautiful environment. I only stayed for a few days. It was actually to short to return totally relaxed. Now I know what to expect, I would go back and stay for at least a week to feel more benefits of it. Yoga is nice! Right now, I'm looking for a place to practise it at home.

Everything was amazing, from the food to the people giving the classes (very professional and nice) to the environment (beautiful nature, easy to go on long or short hikes and the village nearby) and the house itself which has a lot of places to relax, read and write. I would definitely recommend going to this place and than go for a week! I also read a review before going that said I should go for the 8 days instead of 5 and I really did not regret it! After a few days you start to get into it and become more relax, so if you are in doubt; I definitely recommend going for one week! Enjoy! :)

There was a really nice and light - and at the same time serious - atmosphere in the group as well in the staff. They are building up the place at the moment, and it was nice to experience the enthusiasm among them - most of them are volunteers. There were really nice walks. A few wonderful terraces with a nice view. The house was very clean. A beautiful building, beautiful rooms with furniture which fits. It was far better than the price for the 4 days. Also nice that it is easy to reach from Barcelona - everything worked fine with whatsapp and picking up and so on.

It was lovely to get away from the busy working life. The house is at a perfect location, nice and quiet in nature!

The house is quite cold at this time of the year. They give their best to make it warm with gas heaters and fire, still bring warm clothes. For the night they have hot water bottles which is awesome!

The yoga is really good and intens! I‘m recommend people who just want to do yoga and don‘t want to dive in the the spiritual part of yoga look for something else. At Omshanti it is really spiritual.

The staff is loving, caring and really helpful, make you feel very welcomed and loved!

Thank you for this experience!

"Grateful"

I'm so grateful for everyone involved in OmShanti for making this wonderful experience possible. The location is absolutely stunning and well taken care of. The rooms, bathrooms and living areas are very clean. The morning meditation and yoga are the best way to start your day. And if you want more than that, there were lots of workshops with extra yoga and/or meditation class like Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama,...all at your own choice and speed. What I can't forget to mention is the food: always delicious, creative, fresh,... absolutely great! In between all that you can relax, go for a hike, read in the hammock,,... everything your heart and body desires. All day you will be surrounded by lovely and warm people both staff and visitors. From day one it feels like a home, like a family.

Ivan, Anna, Joyce, Janneke, April - I will not forget you. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

Lots of Love - Ilse

"Een echte aanrader voor een weekje ontspanning"

Yogalessen toegankelijk voor elk niveau met zeer goede begeleiding. Lekker eten drie maal per dag. Zeer propere badkamers. Warme sfeer. Afhaling aan station.

"Quiet place, people who make you feel like coming home"

People who made me feel like home were really positive, open and calm. Old charming castle-like house in the woods directly beside national park, beautiful house and rooms, fireplace always running during winter. Fresh and creative mostly vegan food. Really lifechanging meditation, yoga and daily workshops.

"A holiday home full of love"

Every single member of the staff at om shanti is very loving and generous with their time. They all showed sincere interest and helped make my stay as wonderful as it was. It felt like being in a big family, where respect and love are ruling.

3 times a day they prepared a fully homemade meal, which was always (!) delicious.

There were different workshops in the evenings and I enjoyed learning all those things and connecting with the people here.

Thank you so much to everyone at Om Shanti!

It was a very beautiful and healing week for me with you.

"Perfect Place to slow down"

Omshanti is a place in the middle of the nature, totally peacefull and full of love. The people living there are very friendly and open minded, so you can totally be yourself. The yoga/meditation classes and workshops were a real blessing, given with so much dedication and profession. Also had a lovely massage. The environment, the atmosphere, the people and the classes were the ingredients for a lot of new deepening insights.

If you are searching for a month of room for yourself, for your own development and something different during a long trip and additional a yoga teacher training with warm and very open-hearted teachers, you are at the right place here. You will not only learn how to teach yoga. Even more you'll learn how to look after yourself, after others and how to be family with strangers. If you are searching for a luxury, very high quality yoga teacher training, I would say this is not your place. I guess there are more strict places with more focus on yoga teaching, but maybe less on yourself as a part of a community. Living at Om Shanti you are connected to nature with your mainly wooden and with love furnitured accommodation. You'd be sharing 2 showers and 2 toilets with about 12 people or another place with single or double rooms for about 7 people with 1 Toilet and 1 shower. Except you book an extra accommodation not connected to Om Shanti - could also be cheaper all together. Every morning there is breakfast together, which each week makes another group of students. This is also in a very open kitchen space. I loved my stay at Om Shanti and I would do it again!
