I loved the balance between yoga asanas, and philosophy and yoga teachings. It felt really holistic, and I learned so much more than I expected. The teachers were amazing and the location is stunning.

This Yoga Teacher Training exceeded my expectations in many beautiful ways. The hotel and food was very good and clean, a little monotonous at times but we have alternatives for every meal.
The teachers are the reason, why the experience was this wonderful. Their openness, empathy, relativeness, knowledge and warmth made everyone feel welcome and integrated by day 1.
Being with a group of people on the same path, even if the stories were different, made it feel like a family.
The schedule was tough but very reasonable and fairly split up.

Throughout my yoga teacher training I was impressed and inspired by Tanya‘s depth of knowledge on yoga and it’s philosophy. She is someone who really walks the walk and lives her practice. Her actions always expressed a deep respect for the tradition which deepened my own fascination and respect for it. Tanya really emphasized the important of alignment of each of the asanas, and how to most respectfully and effectively assist students in class. This has been a huge take away for me in my own teaching. What also struck me about Tanya, was her willingness to share from her own journey so that her students could learn from her experiences both in practice and in business. She showed us how to merge the two without compromising the tradition or ourselves. Thank you Tanya!
