"Eternally Grateful "
Originally, I booked this kids yoga teacher training to do exactly that, to learn about how to teach kids yoga in a beautiful city. But after completing this 5 day experience, and reflecting back, I have learned SO MUCH MORE. Julie and Clemen's passion, care, commitment and patience for everyone who comes into their yoga studio is wonderful.
Julie went above and beyond- her teaching was personalised, she made sure every topic was covered and every questions was answered- even beyond the scope of what the kids yoga teacher training included. Not only did I learn practical and theoretical aspects of kids yoga in a detailed manner, but I also learned a lot about yoga as a lifestyle and a lot about myself. Through her careful teaching, Julie made me fall in love with myself and with yoga. Additionally, we practiced yoga twice daily!
The location is a bonus, we would have time off in the afternoon, and I would practice yoga in the beautiful Augarten, which is just 10 minute walking distance. The Danube is close by, so I had time to tour around the older part of Vienna.
The accommodations was like a home away from home. I quickly became friends with two other ladies who took the program with me. I had a comfortable bed, I would cook in the kitchen, and we could practice yoga in the studio at anytime. It was definitely a welcoming and comfortable place to stay in for 5 days.
Thank you for this wonderful experience! It has opened so many doors!

"The Best Senario to Expect the Unexpected"
The respect to the teaching and the practice offered was above all that which reflected the highest quality of experience. Julie embodied this in all aespects of the teaching and activities throughout the course which was the most potent and insightful way to instill and support the training.

"Strongly recommended if are ready to become a Yoga teacher"
This residential teacher training embodies a true yoga teacher training (YTT) as can be received in some far-away destination (India, or elsewhere), but actually remaining in Europe. This YTT has not only improved my own yoga practice, but it has really taught me how to pass on my love for Yoga to others.
Being already a Yoga student was not a prerequisite, but it surely helped me focus beyond the physical difficulties of an asana. A strong accent is given to the effects and benefits of Mudras, Pranayamas and Asanas within Yoga practice. The technical aspect of each Asana is explained, different variations (easier or harder) are provided, as well as safety indicators and how to enter and exit each Asana are taught.
The residential nature of this YTT, allows for experiencing life in a Shala. It allowed me understanding the ways of Yoga beyond it’s simple manifestation on the mat. This was an amazing opportunity to learn how to live a Yoga life, from the food we eat, to the relationship with others and ourselves. I discovered things that are superficial and unnecessary in my every day life. This YTT taught me compassion, love and humility. It forced me to dig within myself and see myself, positives and negatives alike. It has been a paramount step in my Yoga path and my personal growth. This YTT has changed me and impacted deeply my attitude towards life, others and myself.

"Une très belle aventure"
J'ai adoré le lieu d'habitation, au milieu de la nature, avec une vue exceptionnelle lors de nos pratiques extérieures,
j'ai adoré les produits cuisinés et les recettes végétariennes découvertes,
et puis l'enseignement, la transmission de Julie et Clemens, j'ai beaucoup appris des cours pratiques mais aussi de la théorie.
