"Bless this place"

I will never in my life have enough kind words for Eli Surya and Molly and the magical space they held for myself and others on Galiano. The practice and the classes were so open and positive and full of love. The meals were always cooked together with friends and family and became that much better because of it. This place and these wonderful souls are just something else. They bring so much light and love, they challenge you to think and reflect and create a beautiful space to learn and grow.

I could go on at length about SAHA but it will just be a jumble of thoughts that just express love and admiration for these lovely humans.

Love love love

"Had a fantastic experience "

This retreat surpassed my expectations by a long shot. I really don't have words to describe how wonderful it was. The leaders Suriya and Eli are amazing. The site where it was held is very beautiful. Accommodations were good. I stayed in a private room and it was very comfortable. There were enough activities (yoga, ceremonies, day trips) without being overwhelmed. Everything was very relaxed. The hosts took excellent care of all the guests. Food was delicious, vegan and very healthy. The ceremonies were very powerful and special. Highly recommended.

"Not at all what their website indicates.... Very deceiving"

I liked that it is on Galiano Island. It is amazing there.

Surya and Eli are master teachers and healers who share their knowledge with great love, support and compassion. This experience went beyond my expectations, offering an abundance of tools that will continue to support my journey. My time with them was truly a blessing. The location was so quiet and peaceful and the group support was also a positive and educational experience. Namaste.

"Breakthrough! "

I had no expectations when showing up, but came out with so much! I was grateful to learn so much about yoga that I didn’t know before and to practice it through spirit rather than exercise. It was so much better than attending a traditional yoga studio.

The music that Eli and Surya played and sang through our meditations were so wonderful and beautiful. Also, their support through the week and advice on things I was working through was exactly what I needed. Thank you both! 💕

The organic and vegan food was more than I had expected. I loved being in the kitchen and asking questions about cooking vegan, as it’s been a goal of mine to learn this summer. A completely unexpected and pleasant surprise!

All in all, it was an amazing week, with amazing people. Beautiful souls!

"All love and light "

From the moment you come up the driveway, you know you're in a special place.

The community atmosphere here is amazing. Anyone who comes here will soon have a reason to stay and help contribute to the project.

A few highlights are the surrounding bush and property. The island setting is perfect and provides numerous excursions if you're that way inclined.

The leaders are both knowledgable and dedicated to each persons practice and journey.

Dont even get me started on the food ...

"Souls ascension healing arts review 200hYTT "

The spiritual aspects, the integration of music and song, the variety of yoga topics that has been covered and the great community of girls!

"The best yoga teacher training EVER!!!"

The level of professionalism and quality of teaching but so much more. The self growth I was able to attain and well...the food was like nothing I have ever tasted!! I came to this school to become a yoga teacher and i left so much more, I will be a different person forever and that is a really good thing!!

I will continue with the Vegan lifestyle as I have never felt better and I will continue my own practice. Molly makes sure we can run a class on our own when we leave, and she prepares us well for a studio to hire us BUT she also makes sure we have our own practice as that is equally important. Molly makes sure we stay healthy so we can bring the best to ourselves and our students!

"Disappointing; training and experience not as described."

I enjoyed the location (the big island, Hawaii); however, most things there were not well planned and were organized last minute and haphazardly by our instructor, Molly. I met a lot of amazing people in the course, but I cannot recommend it as without those people I'm not sure I would have finished it due to my disappointment in the course content and instruction.

This was an amazing spiritual retreat. In addition to being prepared to teach yoga I was able to uncover so much about myself, my place in the world, and how I am choosing to participate. Cleansing in every sense. Rebuilding with bravery, strength and passion.

"Limited Yoga, heavy on ceremony"

Very good teaching style of teaching small sequences to one or two students, different each time. By the final class to be taught, a student has worked with each of the other students individually.

The group of girls who were training.

Some free time to explore Hawaii.

Some good background on yoga history and spirituality.

"Life-changing Experience with Expert Guidance! "

This retreat and training exceeded all my expectations tenfold. Molly Warner is a fantastic leader and teacher. I found a sense of community with the women on this retreat and established lasting friendships. I gained a thorough understanding of Yoga. This was a deeply spiritual experience, and being in Hawaii made it even more impactful. The accommodations were beautiful, and the food was awesome. I took major recipe notes, so I can continue to eat clean and vegan at home. The days were long and intense (as expected) but I never felt too tired, and we still found time to explore Hawaii and have fun!! This was the best 3 weeks of my life...I'd do it all again.

"A beautiful experience!"

Molly is a phenomenal instructor! She reaches out to students through free expression, music and creativity. She does not just prepare you to be a yoga instructor but can truly tap into your dormant abilities. I am so grateful I was able to experience her teachings and love that pours out of her!

"a very happy spiritually enlightened and blessed kindred spi"

I went with no expectations, just happy to allow myself to be taken on Eli's and Molly's magical spiritual carpet ride to distant blue horizons of hope, faith and dreams rekindled. The entire holistic triptych experience of completeness in and body and soul was one of the most nourishing and self healing catalysts I have done. The entire experience from the venue, my fellow tribe of spiritual awakening warriors, the food, the nourishing and the enlightening of self was beyond words, just a truly contented, whole being again, to say two tiny words like thank you just doesn't begin to describe my heartfelt gratitude for being able to share in Eli's and Molly's magical faerie dust sprinklings of phosferous white light was a true blessing.

"Brilliant teacher training! "

We were so lucky to have just 6 of us in the group. We moved between two venues, both really lovely. All team members were so kind and supportive, we had such fun. Creative teaching, lots of time to practise teach. Great food, lovingly cooked. A truly wonderful experience that will stay with me forever ❤️

"Total Transformation"

The staff are incredible, they are kind, caring, and very intuitive to your needs. Food was amazing. Sense of family. The mediations were very healing. The beach was amazing. No pressure to complete all yoga positions, no judgment. I can't say enough great things about this place, you really need to check it out for yourself.

"Getaway to pristine Galiano Island with Soul Ascention "

Galiano is the perfect hideaway to escape the stressors of everyday life. The grounds are set up as tents outside of the main home, and there's one cabin with outlets. There was daily yoga, and one day with a lecture going over a bit of the history of yoga. Instructors are well informed and there's also an instructor course offered. There's a beach walkable from the house. Wildlife watching, kayaking, lots of recreational things to do outside of the retreat if you desire. Great bunch of people at the retreat.

"Couldn't ask for better YTT"

I liked over all atmosphere. It was very beautiful, very safe and loved the teachers. Eli is an incredible Yoga teacher and loved Susan's way of teaching too. And Loved learning posture adjustments from Molly.

I went for just YTT certification but training was much more then that. It was soul touching, it was magical.

Andrina Hutter

I booked a Yoga Teacher Training. What I got instead is impossible to put into words - a journey and an experience that has expanded my life in a way I could not imagine prior to leaving. Friends, family and work colleagues certainly noticed and have commented on how something very deep down inside of me seems to have shifted. I walk taller. I am glowing. I am radiant. I am confident and I am open. I am positive and full of joy. This expansive training has definitely given me way more than it has promised. Yes, I am a yoga teacher now. Yes, I enjoyed the most delicious and nourishing (raw) vegan food. Yes, I have been able to share that training with the most amazing like minded souls. I have not expected, though, to also receive what feels like 10 years worth therapy beautifully and carefully guided by Eli and Surya throughout the whole program. I am immensely grateful that they have both facilitated such an incredibly transformative yoga teacher training and have been so open to sharing from their hearts.

Thank you very much.

Soul Ascension School of Yoga & the Healing Arts

It is official, I am now a Yoga Teacher!

My heart has been blasted open by this amazing experience! With multiple cacao ceremonies paired with lots of deep emotional healing and integration work, huge shifts took place. Through the music and the gentle voices of our facilitators, I found my connection with myself and gathered the clarity I’ve been looking for. This wasn’t just a yoga teacher training, this was an entire mind-body-soul reset 3-week journey with vegan gluten-free diet in an off the grid community living.

I learned so so much, not just topics relating to teaching yoga, but the overall outlook on life from a new perspective.

I always knew I wanted to teach but school setting never resonated with me. I knew I had to be extremely passionate about my chosen topics and that it will be something very untraditional.

Since finding spirituality the doors of unlimited knowledge were opened, I then knew this was my path and that teaching the philosophy of life and the connection of mind, body, spirit is what my life will be about.

I actually applied and almost attended a yoga training 2 years ago before coming to Orlando, but I hesitated and canceled. I now understand why that happened, because my Higher Self had a greater plan for me, which was attending this particular retreat! Molly Moon and her team are beyond amazing at creating an entire life-transforming experience that I’m sure no other school does. I’m forever grateful for this journey and can’t wait to get back home and teach, create and manifest more magic from a place of an open heart!

Soul Ascension School of Yoga & the Healing Arts website

I just finished my 200h Yoga Teacher Training with Soul Ascension Healing Arts at the beautiful Ahu Lani sanctuary in honokaa, Hawaii. In the middle of nowhere surrounded by ancient trees, gorgeous horses, baby goats, dogs and incredible lush nature with ocean view, I went through a transformational journey. There are no words to fully describe and give credit to what I’ve just experienced, but I will try. Three weeks full of different types of yoga practices, profound knowledge around yoga & the Hawaiian culture as well as incredible guided meditations, colorful vegan gluten-free food with the most beautiful goddesses from around the world. This was far more than an ordinary yoga teacher training. I loved the spiritual approach, all the workshops, the powerful songs and ceremonies with plant medicine they included. Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of fire and the volcanos, helped peeling off the deepest layers of my being and bringing up everything to the surface. It was painful, physical and emotional, it was so much fun, exciting, full of love, nourishing, empowering and everything at the same time. The space was perfectly held by Molly Moon and Surya Apolzer with so much love that I felt supported and safe at anytime. I’m deeply grateful for this opportunity and will carry the whole team and all the goddesses forever in my heart. They helped me grow to the next level. I feel so blessed and blissed out and highly recommend this program! But now it’s time for integration, lots of rest with fresh coconuts & beach.
