    The people, the setup and the location, the surprises and the teaching. Intensive and well prepared.

    I hesitated on the Santaang/kirtan nights to begin with, but I ended up appreciating those as well:-)

    It was such a wonderful experience, from the teachers and program, to the accommodations and food. I wish I could do it all over again.

  • Kirsty Tavolacci United States

    I loved the yoga, friends, experience and close walking distance to swim!

    I didn't like that we didn't have much protein in our diets.

    Very rich training with highly trained teachers.

    They did not take enough advantage of the location we were in in Hawai near the volcanoes and the beach.

  • Margreet Broekstra Netherlands

    October 2017, BookYogaTeacherTraining

    Ik heb de manier van lesgeven, die is gericht op ervaren en spiritualiteit, als enorm verrijkend ervaren. Kennis wordt overgebracht, maar vooral ook het gedachtegoed van yoga, de spiritualiteit ervan. De opleiding gaat verder dan het aanleren van poses hoe deze te instrueren en te assisteren. Het is vooral veel ervaren en ook veel doen. Je wordt ondergedompeld in de beleving en ik heb er enorm van geleerd en genoten.

    Eerlijk gezegd kan ik niet iets negatiefs bedenken. Het delen van de badkamer met 20 andere vrouwen is mogelijk wat minder comfotabel, maar dat weet je van tevoren.

    I am excited to share my experience about my yoga training. It is a cleverly designed program. There is lot of love, warmth, understanding and support all the way through. They make you leave the training a newer, better you well equipped to start teaching yoga right away. The atmosphere within the group is like a family! I feel that I made friends for life. I would highly recommend the training to anyone pursuing the goal of becoming the yoga teacher.

    Victor and I were inspired by the yoga, nature, and especially by being with wonderful people with open hearts.

  • Hari Darshan

    Yandara Yoga Institute

    When I arrived at Yandara, I immediately felt the deep peace and quiet. The beach is wonderful and everybody there is happy. The sunrise and sunsets are epic. I totally felt the coherence between the sacred teachings and the way Yandara runs their business. They live what they teach. I felt tons of love and compassion pouring from all the teacher’s hearts. And the cooks and staff are also very loving and kind. They served us with a lot of joy. The food was delicious. Loved the silence between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m.

    I went to Yandara Yoga to get a Hatha Yoga certification and I left not only with that, of course, but with my heart full of love and new precious friends from all over the world! My vibes changed for real, and for good. I am super inspired by everything and everyone there. Thank you so much Yandara!

  • Regan Wilson

    Yandara Yoga Institute website

    I have learned how to incorporate my love for yoga and my beliefs into a lifestyle. I have met people that have expanded my hunger for knowledge. I have found a place where I am in my element. I have learned to relax more and I have learned more ways in which I want to be a better person. I laughed a lot. The meditation practice was wonderful because there were people like the Perkins's to inspire us. Also the environment we were in was so safe, everything was taken care of. So we could use our "internal eyes". The asana practice was wonderful. I deepened my practice and learned more about my body so I could teach my students. The Yandara experience was a beautiful, non-judgmental, comfortable environment to look deep into ourselves and get support from each other. It was amazing. the beauty and the changes will stay with me forever.

    The yoga program offered excellent teaching with high standards.Organization, plentiful good food and clean campsites added to the enjoyment of my stay. The staff at YYI are caring people taking the students' interests in mind. I would recommend this program to other individuals pursuing yoga teacher training. Sincerely,

  • Ami Gosalia United States

    Yandara Yoga Institute website

    My experience at Yandara has been an awakening for me. I have begun a lifelong journey and I want to spread to others the joy and love I have discovered. Satya (the practice of truthfulness) has allowed me to open myself up and although I have my work cut out for me, I am drawn to finding out who I truly am and what my purpose is in this universe. The chanting we do in Satsang invigorates my heart. The harmony we create is so unique to me. The staff at Yandara has been helpful and has open hearts and opened minds. The cooks make great food. The program is complete. My experience at Yandara has been incredible and I will take what I have learned with me into whatever my future holds.
