"Amazing teachers and classes"
I loved the whole experience and I truly recommend it to anyone that loves yoga. The teachers are full of knowledge and passion for Yoga and really know how to transfer the knowledge they have to the students. I feel so ready to start teaching my own students.
This YTT has been like a 7-week Yoga retreat for me where I have been immersed in everything that has to do with Yoga. I now feel a huge need to spread the practice of yoga in the world.
