    - great location, close to shops, restaurants + the beach, not too far from the city

    - Everyone is so kind 💚 they each had something new to teach me

    - Athens has amazing weather + cats

    - The apartment is beautifully furnished + air conditioned

    - free wifi in the studio + the apartment

    - great training; Carmen has true expertise and passion. She is full of grace and character. I felt so welcome

    - Carmen has excellent advice for developing mental + emotional strength. She taught us many lessons about staying present, practicing non-reaction + developing calm, this one stays in my head:

    The mind is a garden + negativity is a snake in the garden. To let the garden flower, take the snake out of the garden. Then when the mind is beautiful, the body will follow.

    - Carmen is a charitable person 💙 Seeing her take care of the space + her practice inspired me.

    - Many mornings I came to the studio the candles burned + there was a great smell

    - Encouragement to eat fresh, healthy food

    - The studio + apartment are cleaned weekly professionally

    - the coffee machine is amazing + the lounge is so comfortable

    - beautiful yoga studio

    - it is intense training 💛studying the asanas + the sutras are strongly encouraged

    - learning the muscle + bone groups and the benefits of the asanas

    - the booklet is a fantastic learning resource

    - students from all over Europe

    - the beach yoga class

    - individual focus of classes

    - prac in the morning + theory in afternoon

    - the doorbell and the phone rang out loud in the studio

    - one of the apartment keys sometimes didn't work (if it's locked from the inside maybe)

    - there is a rule to keep belongings in a plastic container in the apartment

    The training is holistic and yet personalised. It covers all fundamental aspects of Yoga and teaching. On top of that, Carmen and Dietmar Hellman are great inspirers who recognise individual teacher trainees' strengths and weaknesses. Carmen is a dedicated and encouraging master teacher who sees the best in each individual. She helps to open up the consciousness and accelerates personal growth which is vital for teachers.

    I should have joined the trainng earlier. :-))

    The location is amazing. Close to many nice places in glyfada.

    The school operated like a home. Very clean and comfortable.

    The teaching is trabsformational. We received the science in theory and also applied with many expamples to our personal lives and how we can improve it.

    Most of us taught first class within day 5. We learn as we practice. It builds confidence and flexibility as creativity in writing a class and performing it.

    Amazing experience. Coming back for the 500hr soon.

    The reason I chose this school is that you can start whenever you want to and that the group of students is small.

    You'll start to teach asap, even with Carmen's clients. Where else will you find that in a TTC? And if you think you're not ready, just know that you are and that you'll fine support both from Carmen and Dietmar as well as your fellow students.

    What I really liked about this course is that the program is not cast in stone. There is (some) flexibility in the program and classes. Which gives you time to process and take everything in. Or give your body a rest so you can keep on opening it more and more. It still will be intens and you will go through a transformation. If a 7 am - 9 pm fixed program doesn't appeal to you, than this for sure will.

    That being said, I don't believe any training can ever be perfect. Someone once told me that you always get exactly what you need. If your gut feeling is telling you to come here, then trust it and go for it. For everything will fall into place at some point in time. Even after the training is over.

    I am so happy to have completed my 200-hour RYT training at Yoga Skyros IKE in Glyfada! It was perfect and it is one of the BEST decisions of my life. Before booking the training, I struggled because there are SO MANY OPTIONS (all over the world) but I went with Carmen’s place because of her background in yoga (and other related fields) and the academy’s concept of training smaller classes (10 students max). I think this is excellent because it really shows they care about spreading the knowledge to each and every student by building on his or her strengths.

    The accommodation was lovely - comfy bed and cozy room with everything you need. The neighborhood was beautiful and the location was great - only a 10-minute walk to the beach and downtown Glyfada where there are shops - supermarket, bakery, pharmacy, and restaurants. It’s approximately 20EUR to the airport using Uber (or you can take a taxi too).

    Make sure you view and click ‘like’ o their Facebook page to keep up with their news!

    The yoga training itself was great - I felt myself improving every day (mentally and physically). Practicing yoga with the people of Glyfada as well as visitors from around the world is what makes this location unforgettable. Thank you for everything

    Carmen and Dietmar! I will definitely be back!

    It was amazing to do the course in Greece with such an International team. There is a family feel to Yoga Skyros which I don't think you would get elsewhere. The teachers are so full of information and I learnt a huge amount in a very short space of time and feel a fuller and better person for it.

    I guess I would prefer a little more structure to the course. I really liked the idea that it is a rolling course and you can join at any point, but this does mean you can feel behind and rushed at points and possibly not cover every area that others did.

    Le lieu est super, chambre spacieuse, grande salle de bain, grande cuisine toute équipée ! Les cours sont complets, et la prof est superbe ! Je vous remercies encore pour ce séjour !

    Si j'ai un conseil à vous donner: N'HÉSITEZ PAS !

    What did I like most? Not easy to tell, because everything was great! The teacher couple is extremely lovely, open and supportive. Their goal is to give you confidence and they actually achieve it with a lot of patience and continuous teaching. The Yoga Studio is very private, a beautiful flat with a great salon for yoga, a huge kitchen for everybody with a blender and everything you could need. The bedrooms have a good ambiance, and huge closets. So you really feel at home and have all the time to enter in the awesome science of yoga. I feel that I had a deep insight into the science and in some points a real understanding which really transformed me and gave me hope and motivation to keep on this path.

    I really liked the philosophy exchanges, the private and high quality teaching, as we were just 4 students during the training, we learned a lot and quickly. We were able to give a class since the second week ! The atmosphere was really a family atmosphere. That was a wonderful yoga and life experience which awake the consciousness😍!

    I am not disapointed at all !
