"Es war wunderbar."

Die angenehme Gruppengröße hat mir gefallen und die familiäre Atmosphäre. Der Ort ist wunderschön und genau richtig für diese körperlich- und emotional intensiven 3 Wochen. Ich bin sehr froh, dass ich dort meine Ausbildung gemacht habe.

"Terrific Yoga Teacher Training School!! "

Excellent first impressions; a warm, friendly welcome from Vicky & Ronny. Shown the beautiful gardens for lessons & relaxation, comfortable shalas, shady palm trees, and a lush pool, it is an ideal yoga haven. My single room was perfect, with stunning views of the valley and sea, and a sofa to relax & enjoy it! A single bed, wardrobe, and side table, bedside cupboard. Very comfortable sharing a bathroom with a shower, basin with cabinet and a hairdryer.

We had vegetarian mealtime gatherings in a well equiped kitchen, a dining table, we shared culinary skills or we could use the recipe book. I have made some lovely new yogi friends.

The yoga teachers were friendly, professional, kind, supportive. Andrea's comprehensive theory on yoga philosophy, history, different types of yoga and much more, as well as Vicky's Asana Labs were brilliant! Teaching was done at the perfect pace culminating in teaching. I would love to return for further training and therefore I highly recommend the Shambhala School!!

"Une excellente formation de Yoga 200h!"

J'ai passé une superbe expérience au sein de l'école de yoga Shambhala à Tenerife. La formation 200h est d'une excellente qualité autant sur la pratique que la théorie. Le choix d'avoir des petits groupes permet d'apprendre davantage et d'évoluer dans un cadre plus calme tout en prenant vraiment le temps de découvrir les autres personnes présentes. Les professeures sont bienveillantes, très compétentes et à l'écoute. Le cadre de l'école est super, on s'y sent tout de suite à l'aise. Tout est toujours fait pour que l'on ne manque de rien. En résumé je recommande cette école les yeux fermés tant pour leur professionnalisme que pour leur humanité.

"Shambhala paradise"

Everything was absolutely amazing. Very recommendable. The yoga classes and theory lessons as well as the environment, the finca, the people and the food. It is an absolutely nonjudgmental place and I could really be myself during the whole stay. I was surprised how much I learned withing this short Periode. I would definitely go there again!

"Amazing, life-changing training with kind teachers"

Shambala Yoga school is this magical place that you didn't think it could exist. I came to complete a 200hr Teacher training in August 23 and from the very first evening it felt like the owners had adopted us into their family. We started with a deleciuos meal that Andrea cooked for us and an opening ceremony and then had Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga lessons every day as well as theory lessons. The teachers Andrea, Vicky and Nicole were extremely kind and knowledgeable. They are full of compassion and understanding of how students learn. The teachers slowly increased the level of challenge and I loved how inclusive they were. My favourite quote from Vicky was, "your body is your boss!" She always encouraged us to listen to our body so that we would slowly develop our strength.

Over the three weeks we had lots of opportunities to practise Vinyasa, Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. We gained a detailed understanding of how to sequence a lesson and how to adapt different asanas. I highly recommend the yoga school for anyone who is looking to practise and learn in a small group (we were 8 students). There is enough time to socialise and to have your own space.

The food we cooked as a group was delicious and I left with lots of inspiration.

We went for meals together on a Sunday and the teaching team took us to the beach twice for SUP Yoga and for a change of scenery.

Altogether, I will forever be grateful for the love, kindness and wisdom of the teachers - Thank you for everything! 🙏🙂

"Excellent experience in 300 hour teacher training "

"If I knew before, I would't have booked this school... "

I am very grateful that this website is very helpful and takes care of us in case is needed! They helped me to get a bit of money back from the school after a terrible experience.

"Unforgettable experience "

Andrea, Ronny and Vikki have built the most beautiful environment to immerse yourself in yoga practice and philosophy. The teaching was of an incredibly high standard, both the practical classes and the theory. Ronny kept the kitchen stocked with amazing fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, and fresh baked bread every morning!

"A wonderful stay with a warm-hearted family!"

Everything at Shambhala is beautiful. I can’t put it in words how glad I am that I chose this school to do my TTC200!

And, for sure, I would make this decision again - without doubt!

Andrea, Ronny, Vici, the kids, and the pets are warm-hearted hosts, who try not only to support you on your way to become a yoga teacher but do everything that you feel happy and safe.

Of course, as this journey is intense, there are up and downs, but nothing that stays long. As it’s a small group of people you grow as a family and up and downs are being shared.

The shala, the garden, the rooms, the kitchen,… - everything is made to feel home.

The course is well structured and even though it’s a full schedule, you feel happy to learn all these things! From yoga philosophy to various asanas - I can’t think of something that we didn’t learn.

Oh well, words can’t do it justice… thank you to the Shambhala family for everything ❤️❤️❤️

"Great Teacher Training "

Shambhala is a really wonderful place and the quality of the training was really high.

The whole villa is a wonderful place with flowers, a pool and a lot of spaces to relax. The rooms are really nice and they have enough space to store your belongings. The shala is beautiful,too.

The food was amazing. Our kitchen got regularily refilled by ronny and we had a lot of seasonal and regional veggies and fruits from the island including tasty mango and avocado. There was fresh bread every morning. We also made sure to have enough protein in every meal. The cooking was fun.

The group size was perfect, we ended up being only six people, so everybody could really ask questions and has been well adjusted during the classes. We supported each other and grew together during the 3 weeks.

The yoga classes were great. Ashtange is very demanding, but they will find an option for everyone in every pose. The vinyasa vlass was adopted according to the physical condition and the mood of the group.

The theory lessons were interesting and very interactive. There was a lot of space for questions and personal exchange while still making sure we learn and repeat the content.

The asana lab and teaching to teach was great. Andrea gave a lot of practical advice and made us teach from the very beginning.

If you hesitate on booking the training or not, just do it !

I had a very nice 3 weeks at Shambala. Full of emotions, laughters, tears. Lessons were intense, we had nothing but yoga in those 3 weeks. Andrea and Ronny are excellent hosts. Gardens are beautiful, location is perfect. Everything is calming and peaceful. Our teacher Wicky is a living sample of yoga mentality. She is calm, friendly, funny (we had lots of laughter with her), and most importantly she knows what she is talking about. I sincerely recommend this yoga school. And hope to return tenerife to visit them.
