Alon, Viktoria & Ria were the most incredible instructors! They are the reason I feel confident in entering the world as a yoga teacher. I will carry their knowledge & words with me, forever! The location in Koh Phangan is stellar! I loved the variety of styles offered. I fell in love with SUP yoga, and plan to teach this style ASAP!

"FOREVER THANKFUL FOR AN AMAZING MONTH!"
I'm deeply grateful for an amazing learning experience with Ulu Yoga on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan! We, our class with people from all over the globe, were taught by 7 teachers, everything from aerial yoga, acroyoga, SUP yoga, hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, injury treatment, prenatal yoga, choreography as well as traditional yoga sutra philosophy, anatomy, methodology, teaching practice, designing classes, to analytics. Every single teacher provided skilled knowledge, support, guidance, inspiration and motivation, each in their own unique way, to each of their unique student to gain or expand their knowledge of yoga, to learn how the body works, how it is connected to mind and spirit, how to experience possible changes and how to use the tools necessary to develop and deepen our own personal practice to be able to share it with others.
I’m very thankful to, and for having met each one of them, thankful for the gained knowledge with every step on and off the mat into the fascinating world of yoga.
from Germany, December 2018
"A transformational experience "
I really liked the different styles of the teachers, everybody was so different and you can learn a lot from all of them. You practise teaching from the first moment on, that’s perfect. And I also love the idea of the multi style course. I loved the whole group, this was an amazing energy!
Thanks you so much for all the inspirational talks and the profund knowledge you shared with us.

"Aerial Yoga 50h TTC "
The classes and the schedule of the day was well organized and balanced. The morning classes were very good.
A good Variety of practice : restorative aerial, silk, partner, accro.
The classes were consistent and the instructors serious.
The black light choreography was a very fun time.
The location is nice, near to Haad Yao beach were you have all you need ( supermarket, massage place, restaurants)
Hotel & restaurant owners very nice and open to changes for the food - the value of the breakfast that is included is 200B, and I asked for spending this 200B and ordering on the menu and they agreed even if this was extra organization for them.

"Life changing month "
Everyone throughout the school was warm and accepting. Each and every teacher was unique with their own style and once I learnt the many variations of yoga I was very appreciative of all the beautiful teachers and their different styles. I loved Sashi's theory classes as I learnt a lot from them and was so appreciative to be taught by such an inspiring woman. Additionally, Alon is another outstanding teacher amongst the team who is another inspiration. I also strongly believe this school has an outstanding aerial yoga program. The yoga studio was breath taking and location of the course was centre stage amongst all the yoga action. I would recommend to future students to stay at Bounty as the convenience of being close to the school is unbeatable. Additionally the beautiful family who runs the resort are so lovely and welcoming over the past month they became family to me. I cant wait to come back next year to see each and everyone of these beautiful teachers again.

" Very enjoyable and fun"
I really liked the analytics classes as we had a chance to review the class asana practice and ask questions. Ria was very helpful and made you feel comfortable when in teaching practice and her explanations were clear and precise.
The class structure was good and I had a lot of fun at the black light as it broke up the week a bit. Especially the aerial yoga on the beach. Variety was very good. I really enjoyed the aerial silk but there wasn’t enough time for more than an afternoon. Minty was very good, clear and creative with her class so was Sasis class was quite direct which I liked and I loved the restorative practice she gave and the demonstrations with part partner yoga and yoga massage. I would really like to come back for the next course when it starts so please keep me posted. 😀

"Above and beyond "
Exceeded all expectations, more than just a TTC, I have gained so much knowledge from all the instructors. There is such a variety of lessons every day was slightly different it was hard work as expected but Sashi bent over backwards to ensure everyone was satisfied with all aspects of the trip.

"Incredible Experience in Paradise!"
OMG! We did aerial in the water and took so many beautiful pictures! And we did body painting and made acro aerial show with backlights! But also it was serious safe aerial class in the morning and deep spiritual lecture I didn't expect. The ocean here looks like paradise from a movie dream. So many beautiful colors of blue. And the sunset! Magical! Also snorkeling with coral and fish everywhere! We had three teachers who were each specialist in philosophy, anatomy, normal aerial and choreography. It all blew my mind :)

"An Eye-Opening Experience"
Alon and Viktoria are super knowledgeable in their respective skills. I really loved Alon's dry humour throughout analytics class even though we were serious when it comes to adjustments and alignments. Viktoria is one of the most caring people I've ever met - she was able to make me feel safe enough to be vulnerable and trusting, which vastly improved my teaching and acro yoga performances. Also a huge shout out to Ananda, Karina, David, Art and all the volunteers who've made this experience so beautiful. My group is so diverse, yet we all bonded pretty quickly with lots of stories to share.

"Fond Memories & Lifelong Skills"
I chose this course mainly because of the varied styles of Yoga to train in - Aerial, SUP, Hatha and Vinyasa. Not many places offer such range. The course was intense with some amazing knowledge gained from the fabulous team of teachers all who have rained and studied varying Yoga skills and Philosophy for many years. Shashi was our group leader and WHAT A GIRL she is very knowledgeable, intelligent and kind hearted. We all miss her hugely. Location is in great area North of the Island away from the madding crowd instead it’s very much a central Yogi destination with calm, classier, hip vibe.

"Hopefully it will be better for the next group "
Vitoria, Eleonora and Alon are great teachers. Their passion is evident, they’re approachable and are willing to break down anything you need to know. Alon is a world of knowledge and the more time spent with him the better. With all of the problems that arose during the course, Victoria and Shashi did their best to try and ease the blow and it’s appreciated. There were a fair few negatives but it had its positives too. When we eventually had the sufficient teachers (unfortunately for our group, a little too late) the course went well. I think If our suggestions are taken on board the next group should have a better time.

"Magic on Koh Phangan"
SUP yoga on the beautiful beaches of Koh phangan with Edward. The SUP yoga was magical and calming as the water rippled under the board, it was the first time doing yoga on water for me and I loved it wholly. Aerial Yoga and Acro Yoga with Victoria, Agni and Edward was phenomenal! Having no prior experience this definitely put me out of my comfort zone, it was educational with patience and compassion from the instructors, I felt It catered for all levels. The Anatomy, Alignment, and Analytics was taught with passion and depth, I couldn't have asked for more. The philosophy of yoga was food for my soul and Eleanora and Shashi had such passion as teachers , my love evolved. There were so many extras provided by Ulu Instructors.. pranayama techniques, meditation sessions, chakra balancing, blacklight party nights, extra classes were offered for Hatha, Vinyasa, Aerial, Ashtanga classes if we desired. Plus we got one day off a week to explore the magic of the island..
One thing I can tell you is that magic lives and exists on the island ... all I can say is how can you not want to experience the magic ? The magic of the island and importantly the magic within you!
from Laos, November 2017
I loved learning aerial/flying yoga and other yoga related skills in a fun week by the beach with many great teachers and coursemates. Loved the Bounty resort, the beautiful view from shala, daily sunsets, acro and partner aerial and yoga, hanging from bamboo tripods... This is a good way into learning yoga, I actually gained flexibility, balance, muscle and feel relaxed and super recharged. Thanks Ulu team!

"Best choice ever!"
Immediately, I felt like I was part of a new family. Everybody practiced from whatever experience level they were at. I was the only one who didn't have a 200h yoga teacher training before, this was my first ever teaching experience and it was just amazing! Minty and Agni supported me and the others in every way possible and altogether we just had a lot of fun up in the swings!
from Japan, October 2017
The studio " Ubud Yoga Centure" is amazing! With glass wall viewing to green jungle , coconut ? trees was mezmorizing ! Loved doing all classes in sunlight with fresh air. During meditation could enjoy rain sound & wild birds/ rooster singing! All classes were on time! Breakfast was super delicious! Healthy (raw vegan, gluten free) various choices for lunch made me feel good everyday! Our instructors did their best to transmit to us all their knowledge about Ulu Yoga! All staffs were very kind! Warm relaxing atmosphere !

"An amazing week!"
It was perfect for me in that I learned a lot and it was at the right pace for me. Edward takes the class as a whole into consideration when teaching so if you're more advanced but there are a lot of beginners in your group expect a slower pace. If you are a newbie expect to gain the confidence to do things you've always dreamed of doing! Blacklight night is super fun, the tripod morning is a great way to end the week.
from Singapore, June 2017
I like that the Instructors are helpful in making arrangement for us and have good technical knowledge. I like the physical part of the training the most.
from Sri Lanka, June 2017
"Great time, would definitely go again."
This is a beautiful program in a gorgeous location. Intense but very doable. This program is also a great way to expand your practice into something more playful and yet challenging. As we practiced you could really see the endless opportunities to do prep work for advanced ashtanga poses like inversions and intense leg stretches, core and arm strength building, and supportive practices for beginners. A great companion TTC to more traditional practices.
from Netherlands, May 2017
"Unique & Inspiring"
A wonderful experience and unique program for anyone who's interested in aerial yoga, experienced or not. I especially enjoy the wide range of possibilities enabled by the program, where there are fun challenges for advanced yogis, great transition to those awesome poses intermediates always want to achieve, as well as an easy-breezy start for beginners.
All teachers are great in their own way and the variety in teaching styles really helped me to discover my own. The positive energy from my class mates not only has deepened my practice but also expanded my understanding of mild mindfulness and kindness to a new level. It's all about the people, at the end of the day, it's the person you learn from/with that matters the most.
That being said, the beach is just at your doorstep with the most breathtaking sunset view and fun water activities that Thailand has to offer :) thank you Uluyoga and Edward.

"Ko Phangan Thailand Ulu Yoga "
The amazing people I met on the trip and the total overall experience. It was amazing. I was a little worried about my ability and confidence at the start of the program but the instructor, Edward, was very accommodating and talented. I could feel myself getting stronger day by day and it was just such and inspiring experience. Thailand is such a beautiful country, I especially liked the side trips we took to the waterfall and just exploring the countryside. I will do this trip again another time.
from Thailand, April 2017
From the start Edward and his team were knowledgable and professional and very experienced. I loved the variety of classes and the way we're were taught. A fantastic lunch was served every day and the location was wonderful also. I highly recommend this course with ULU Yoga - you won't be disappointed!

De variatie in lessen waren onwijs goed. De inhoud was super interessant en leerzaam. De docenten waren geweldig. Veel vakkennis. Ik wilde zo graag langer blijven. Een week is eigenlijk te kort. De sfeer is super fijn en ik heb er een paar hele fijne vrienden bij.

"Yoga Teacher education 200 hours"
I began my journey with much concern.
I wasn't sure if I had made the right choice at my age and with my little yoga experience.
I was inspired by the fact that Aerial Yoga and SUP were on offer, that the resort is located directly by the sea and that the pictures published on the WEB gave me the impression that the fun factor was not neglected and that they radiated a certain "lightness".
The program was tough. 200 hours in 4 weeks. A lot of practice, a lot of information, a lot of different topics and all this in a language in which the vocabulary is limited and requires a lot of concentration. I also had some concerns about the exam because I didn't know exactly what to expect from us students and what to deliver.
However, my concerns were unfounded. I felt very comfortable. I met wonderful people, learned a lot and took so much with me.
Be it yoga practice, analytics (what is important to get into the perfect position for the asanas and how can I train my body to come closer) as well the philosophy of yoga.
It was like a school of life. What makes us people to "better" people or how do I live more consciously and happier?
My heart is filled with so many positive experiences and I don't regret a moment that I have decided for doing this training on this place.
To have only 3 days for free during the whole month is little. I would recommend, if possible, to add a few extra days to get the many impressions and lessons before returning to your everyday life.
from Germany, December 2018
"Beautiful experience "
The instructors were grate all in their own and different way so I learnt a lot! Also the location and food were good and the beaches very close by!

The course was intense yet SO much fun at the same time. Edward is a great guy. He has developed a great program and I love his aerial flow sequence. He is very skilled and thorough with explanations so that you are safely positioning yourself in the swing to avoid slipping or falling. The island of Koh Phangan is quite magical. Our course took place at the original ULU Yoga property in Ban Tai which was in a small resort town, nestled in the jungle away from the main pier and yoga community on the other side of the island. It was a little but rustic but nothing compared to my time spent in places like India or Central America. I also had the chance of travelling with him to the new ULU Yoga training centre located at Bounty Resort in Head Yao and it is such a beautiful space! I may come back and do a longer course to learn more and experience the upgrade in facilities! I loved meeting new people from all around the world in this course as we all had come together with one similar interest…… YOGA! We had so much fun, worked our butts off and shared many moments of laughter. I love this style of aerial yoga as it helps support me to go deeper and more into stretches, which I believe has allowed me to open up and go deeper into my stretches….. more so than being on the mat without the swing. Also, Edward has developed and manufactured his own type of swing that is different then the strap or silk hammock that other courses use. I believe it is more comfortable and versatile than the others (I bought two to take on my travels with me). I would recommend ULU Yoga to anyone, beginner or advanced yogi. You get to live and practice on a beautiful Thai island, have fun and be creative with a bunch of like minded individuals. Sure it can be a bit physically challenging but how are you supposed to grow if everything is easy peasy all the time? I have made some new life-long friends in this course and I am grateful for Edward and ULU Yoga for such a beautiful experience!
