      "Een geweldige ervaring!"

      Ik deed de hybride vorm en deze was in alle opzichten fantastisch. De online content is van hoge kwaliteit. Zowel inhoud, filmpjes als platform zijn goed. De online support is ook goed en iedereen reageert snel als je een vraag of probleem hebt. De on the spot training in Palairos Griekenland was geweldig. De leraren zijn heel professioneel, yoga is echt hun passie en ze willen met liefde hun kennis overbrengen. Het programma was vol en fysiek uitdagend maar dat is juist waar ik van heb genoten. Op onze vrije dag hebben we een boottrip gemaakt en dat was absoluut de kers op de taart. Oh.. en niet te vergeten het griekse eten wat de mama's iedere dag voor ons klaar zetten.. heerlijk!

      "Challenging YTT Course"

      Pros: 1. Alignment training was really comprehensive. Faye was really knowledgeable. You can tell she is very experienced. Eleni was very sweet and she really loved teaching philosophy but her strength for me was in pranayama/yoga classes. I found I liked the meditation a lot more than I expected. 2. My classmates were all really lovely people. Everyone was so helpful and it felt like a team. 3. The view from the hotel is gorgeous and great beach access. 4. Challenging course - I’ve been doing vinyasa for over 6 years and this course was exactly what I hoped on the yoga side. I think it would be difficult to do as a beginner to vinyasa style yoga. You should be able to do 1.5 hours of continuous yoga at one time, 5 days a week and workshops in the evenings.

      Recommend packing: Mat, 1-2 good quality mat towels, chacos/tevas/water shoes, sun protection (UV rash guard, hats, sunnies, sunblock), loose clothing, leggings/active wear, day backpack, portable speaker, 300-500 euros cash in small bills, writing utensils & notebook, enough meds/toiletries to last you the whole course, blow dryer, bedding/pillow.

      "An All Round Beautiful Experience with Beautiful Souls "

      What can I say about this wonderful "wonder woman" that hasn't already been said! Faye is Fierce, Feisty, Funny, Fabulous & so passionate about Yoga & the journeys it can take you to .

      I completed my YTT w/Faye and I couldn't be more grateful for the experience.From the very first session, she created a welcoming and supportive environment that made me feel comfortable & eager to learn.Faye's expertise and passion for yoga are truly inspiring.She has a deep understanding of the practice and is incredibly skilled at breaking down complex poses & concepts into manageable steps.Her teaching style is both encouraging & challenging, pushing me to grow & improve while always being mindful of my individual needs & limitations.One of the things I appreciated most about Faye is her ability to create a sense of community among her trainees. She immediately created an atmosphere of mutual respect & support, which made the training not only educational but also enjoyable and fulfilling.

      I also want to highlight Faye's dedication to each student's personal growth. She took the time to provide individualized feedback and guidance, helping me to refine my practice & develop my teaching skills. Faye's commitment to my success was evident in every session.Overall, I highly recommend Faye to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice or pursue a career in teaching yoga. Her knowledge, passion & supportive nature make her an exceptional Mentor. TY for an unforgettable life experience.

      Faye and Eleni are incredible teachers! I learned more than I thought possible and they prepared me extremely well to teach!

      "It starts now"

      The end is the beginning. The bonds and friendships that have been made will last a lifetime. That’s what Yoga and this experience are all about, a union, oneness.

      The diversity in our group ranged from 20 something to 60 something. And this only made it more interesting, fun and a collaboration of life. Every one of the 23 beautiful souls dovetailed into a magical experience. And played their role for this unforgettable journey.

      Was the food perfect no, was anything perfect no, but in life, what is? It was challenging, not only from a physical standpoint, but a mental standpoint. It’s such a dichotomy, you’re in a beautiful place, but you don’t have much time to enjoy it. We made it happen and celebrated with a party in the Villa, that was nothing less than spectacular.

      My only advice would be, enjoy the journey. The stress and fear of dealing with your flow and passing the test, is your own personal silly drama. Everybody’s flow was filled with spectacular smiles on their faces, even the most timid shined. And we all passed our test just as they said we would. The questions are given. They are more then lenient and fair.

      We made friends for life, and in the meantime, a 200 hours certificate. A blessing beyond words.

      Eleni and Spyros are exceptional teachers.

      Location was so peaceful and beautiful. Accommodation was great and hotel staff so accommodating and kind.

      "A life changing experience"

      The instructors were amazing, the shala beautiful and the support given by the team was remarkable. So much time and effort put into making this a beautiful experience. I am so grateful to the instructors and everyone working behind the scenes to make this happen. My skills and knowledge have improved so much in just a few weeks, and I feel so empowered and ready to continue the journey. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat, and am already planning on doing my 300hrs with YogaUnion next year

      I would like to give a huge shout out to Angela who assisted with our training, providing support and guidance on so many levels. All of the instructors are fantastic and each has taught me so much - I loved having the opportunity to learn from different perspectives and styles, and being able to incorporate these into my own practice and teaching style

      I have made so many lovely friends from all across the world being here; thank you so much

      "Yin from the heart ♥️"

      Most of all the teacher! Very authentic teaching style and very knowledgeable. Answering questions with patient and approaching students with a very loving and supportive way. I barely ever meet teacher like this...

      The Shala and the location were amazing. Happy with the people I shared this experience with! Great communication and organisation! I'd definitely recommend and looking forward to come back to YIN YTT level 2

      "Une formation de qualité !"

      Le lieu, les cours, les professeurs, tout était formidable. J’ai énormément appris concernant le yoga aussi bien dans la pratique que dans la théorie. Je ne parle pas très bien anglais et les professeurs sont là pour répondre à toutes nos questions ils sont très disponibles.

      En revanche si vous ne parlez pas du tout anglais cette formation n’est pas faite pour vous il faut avoir un minimum de base.

      Sinon je recommande à 100% cette formation !!

      "Incroyable expérience de vie"

      - La formation (le contenu théorique, la pratique, les ateliers, etc) globale. - - Les séances de yoga, les explications, les ajustements, le dynamisme et l'énergie de la part des professeurs.

      - Un grand merci pour l'accueil et la bienveillance des hôtes (équipe incroyable aux petits soins) qui étaient au top!

      - Les rencontres très enrichissantes avec les différents participants venus des 4 coins du monde.

      "Worried about not having done enough beforehand? "

      From day 1 both Himanshu and Faye, made this journey one to never forget, from the practical aspects to the theory and to extra support anywhere else.

      Spryos with his absolute passion for anatomy allowing for information intake easy and fun to digest and for the continued support afterwards.

      Our 3 teachers combined creates the most wholseome training experience.

      If you ever feel like you aren't prepared enough beforehand or will be afterwards, I can assure you that they will dissolve all of those worries.

      Especially the family you create here, everyone is here for the same reason and everyone wants each other to thrive in our practices, by the end of the training it will be something that you'll be over joyous about to share such a journey with such incredible people.

      Lastly the staff here are incredible, they're kind and generous and hard working and are always looking out for all of us to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

      To conclude all I can say, is if you're interested in yoga this will be something you won't regret.


      from Canada, September 2023

      Pranayama and Flow along with alignment all taught by Himanshu were excellent.

      "This is an excellent yoga training!"

      This training offered to me much more than I expected. Our teachers, Faye, Ippoliti and Spyros, are so passionate about what they are doing and they can transmit their knowledge and passion for yoga in a straightforward, detailed and sometimes very fun way. All the teachers and hotel staff have been extremely helpful for every concern, question or problem I had during my stay in Kosta Maria. The three weeks of training are very intense, but you will not regret for doing this choice, if you wish to learn more about yoga and deepen your practice. You learn so many new things during these three weeks and you will realize for sure how far you can go with your practice. Furthermore, it is a wonderful place to meet people from all over the world and go together to the next level :)

      "Yoga and so much more 🤍"

      This training was an amazing path to yoga in all its beautiful ways. The location was chosen wisely as its a small family owned hotel, we felt home in every single way. Food was fresh and delicious, staff was like our family members, always treated us with love. Everyone was so helpful. As the markets were about 25 min. walking distance, I was taken to a market by a staff member, Stella when I was in need of groceries.

      Training was intense both physically and spiritually, we all broke down sometimes emotionally. However with the support of our amazing instructors we were able to grow each day. Our dearest Faye and Ippo was perfect in their own Yin & yang ways. Especially allignment classes with Faye and pranayama classes with Ippo were one of a kind. Although we had much less time together, our anatomy instructor Sypros was also a unique and amazing person. His passion for anatomy was evident and he motivated us in many ways.

      Overall this was an amazing experience for me personally. And I recommend it to anyone who has love, dedication and time for yoga. 🤍🤍🤍

      "Beyond life changing"

      I did my 200h vinyasa teacher training with YogaUnion in June 2023 in Ubud, Bali and it was beyond life-changing. I learnt everything I wanted to learn about yoga here with the most amazing group of teachers. Apart from pure yoga, I also made great connections with peers from all over the world and got to delve deep into myself in a level I’ve never imagined myself.

      Special shout out to my lead teacher Himanshu. He’s the best yoga teacher I’ve ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable about everything in yoga from asanas to pranayama and philosophies. He is extremely experienced in dealing with different types and levels of students from all over the world. Apart from his great teaching skills, he is insanely passionate about what he does and is always ready to help students in every single way possible.

      This is not a one man’s word. I am confident that I can speak for many of my batch mates who absolutely love Himanshu. Himanshu is the very core of this training. This world needs more teachers like him!

      "Quality training in beautiful setting"

      This 200 hour Vinyasa YTT in Paleros exceeded my expectations of what a 200 hour YTT could offer. Faye Balomenou teaches with extreme enthusiasm for yoga and is willing to share as much of her knowledge as you can handle. The alignment classes were extensive and precise, and it is clear she has experience and confidence in teaching and adjusting. The practices were intense and motivating. Eleni Chantzara complements her collegue very well and her teachings in Pranayama and various workshops are very thoughtful and valuable. She also offers beautiful flows and a gentle energy. The anatomy classes with Spyros Kapitsinos are original and captivating, and can keep you engaged even after long and tiring practices. He is very knowledgeble and tries to empower his students in their yoga practice and teaching with knowledge of (their own) anatomy.

      The hotel is in a beautiful location (half an hour walk outside of Paleros town) with its own private beach only a couple of staircases away. If you don't feel like walking down there is also a pool, and everywhere you look you have a view of the sea and beautiful mountains. The upper and lower Shala's combined with the scenery create a great atmosphere to practice in. The hotel staff is very friendly, the rooms are very clean, and the food is very fresh, variabel and tasty (mostly a healthy/vegetarian spin on Greek dishes, for some maybe a bit heavy). All in all I would recommend this experience!

      "Unforgettable and life changing … if you practice Tapah ;)"

      This yoga teacher training definitely exceeded my expectations. We could not have had better teachers. They professionally „showered“ us with their knowledge with so much dedication and passion that you just feel like the science of yoga has penetrated into body, mind and soul and believe me this is a wonderful feeling. I came home being my 100% self and on top feeling inspired to go further with my own practice and really teach others which I did not expect after just 3 weeks. Nevertheless to get to this result was sometimes a rollercoaster of physical and psychological states but we had to be pushed to our limits in order to learn how much we are capable of and finally to blossom as every woman did in the end. Fay is like a diamond with so many facets in her personality and ways of teaching from being necessarily critical in order to make us really understand what we are doing to making us laugh like a hen house and everything in between. Eleni is such a precious soul that you just can’t help but wanting to learn to breath and meditate as she presents it so desirable and makes its techniques easy to understand. And her flows were „killing me softly“. Spyros made Anatomy class with lots of humor so interesting and logical - I surprisingly could easily remember the important topics for the exam. The KostaMaria Family and staff is wonderful. The food is very tasty and rooms super clean. And: 106 steps and you can dip into crystal clear water with a stunning view - go for it!

      "Extensive education for yoga teachers "

      My training took place in the Earth shala of YogaUnion in the rice fields of Ubud. My accommodation was also right next to the shala (2 meters away to be exact). There was no pool there, but you were able to use the pools of other places where some of the other participants stayed at.

      The restaurant where we ate for each meal was a 3 minute walk away. There are some nice spas and cafes in the area. There was something different every day. You cannot always meet everyone‘s taste each meal, but there is always something in the buffet that you will find delicious.

      My main teacher was Gourav who has a lot of knowledge about yoga, pranayama and alignment of the asanas. He will prepare you excellently for becoming a yoga teacher.

      Our anatomy teacher is not in the list, but I want to mention Menik explicitly because she was an AMAZING teacher and could answer every single one of our questions. She linked the anatomy info with yoga poses.

      Our philosophy teacher Laila has a really special energy and her voice is very soothing. She also gives the 50h yin yoga teacher training.

      We had a mix of different yoga classes like yin, restorative, acro, ashtanga, nidra, but mainly we were specialising in vinyasa. The level of the classes was more intermediate, but you will learn along the way and get stronger each day.

      In our group there were 19 lovely participants who made the training enjoyable and a really special experience. I can recommend it!

      Thank you YogaUnion for taking me and 11 gals on an unforgettable adventure. This is a really great place to learn, grow, and push yourself.

      Eleni, Ipo, Spyros provided a safe environment that pushed us to reach new limits. I really enjoyed how critical they were of us (in the spirit of betterment and deepening our practice).

      I loved how everyone take good care of us.

      Himanshu he is amazing with his knowledge. We are 30 more people but he can manage to care and teach every single one of us.

      Laila, she is pure love and motivated person. She motivated me, she gave my soul love.

      Fabien, he was always there during the training, he helped corrected me almost every time. I’m so happy for he is company there during the training; sometimes he gave me a look and say: you can do it sherin. It means a lot for me.

      Luca, he is sunshine in the group, he was always there when we have any any problem, sometimes even personal problem; he was our emotional protecter, his smile, his lovely energy was so strong and helped us never feel lonely.

      The training was just excellent, unforgettable, instance. I FOUND A SECOND FAMILY.

      I am so glad to have HIMANSHU BAHUGUNA as my Mentor and trainer. Now I am a Yoga Teacher and I know that the knowledge I’ve learned from Himanshu is gonna help me for my whole Yoga Teacher Journey. I got a recommendation last year from a friend of mine to do my YTT by YogaUnion and I am just happy to share these 3 weeks with all the beautiful souls of YogaUnion. Thank you so much guys, you are so professional, so kind and open minded. I have learned so much stuff here by you, it is was a life changing journey for me. I’m gonna recommend all my friends who wanna do YTT as well to come to Bali or Greece and do the training by YogaUnion.

      I am looking forward for the 300h YTT next year by YogaUnion. And am gonna follow Himanshu wherever he teaches. Thank you guys and see you hopefully very soon 🤗🤗🤗🙏🏽

      I also would like to thank u Marina & Anna Viktoria, you guys gave some amazing classes, with kindness, love and enthusiasm. I will have you guys in my heart forever!

      "One breath away from a life changing experience!"

      There are no words to express my gratitude for the life changing journeys I went through thanks to YogaUnion.

      After completing my 200hr and 300hr in vinyasa yoga, the 50hr yin TTC felt like the cherry on the cake!

      The teacher was incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring with a unique energy that made me feel supported and nurtured at the same time. Through yoga I have learnt so much about life in general, about myself and the others. The Yin TTC allowed me to dive deeper within, take a break from my monkey mind and have glimpses of my true self while embracing my authenticity.

      I'm already looking forward to the next trainings YogaUnion will create and host and can't wait to grow alongside with them.

      Once again, THANK YOU YogaUnion, thank you to your fantastic teachers and support team and for reminding all of us what life is all about. Keep doing the amazing job you're already doing and spreading more love and kindness in the world!

      "Lifetime memories ✨"

      The Teacher Training exceeded my expectations. As I was fairly new to Yoga, I have to admit, that the tight and packed schedule can be quite challenging at times, but it was amazing too see how I gradually grew in my yoga practice and also on a personal level.

      Yoga is so much more than physical exercise and through our Philosophy classes I also started to implement the Yogic lifestyle throughout my daily life off the mat.

      My accomodation in the rice fields was just wonderful and clean and just a few minutes from the shala (students are spread all over guest houses in the rice fields) and the food provided at the restaurant was suuuuuuper delicious.

      I can only recommend this experience to everyone who wants to dig deeper in to Yoga - even if you’re not planning to become a teacher at the end of this journey.

      Elia Salas

      from Spain, December 2022

      "What can be wrong?!"

      In a place like those rice fields nothing can be wrong. Surrounded by nature with huge green leafs, the wonderful weather and those cute noises from frogs, gekos, birds and water that it sounds from a perfect nature soundtrack.

      The shala were we practiced was always good care and clean. They are well organized in every meal ( I’m celiac and they did take care about it every time ) also with the schedule of the training.

      It feels a save, cozy and professional place.

      100% recommended 🧚🏻‍♀️🫶

      The people you meet at the YTT are amazing, everyone from the teachers to your “classmates”, and the restaurant and accommodation staff.

      Our Vinyasa and alignment teacher was Gourav, he is very knowledgeable, funny and it was always a pleasure to attend his classes.

      You will learn a lot of things, eveyone will be open to help you and asnswer your questions.

      It really was one of the most heartwarming and beautiful experiences i’ve ever had, a lot of tears in aome of the classes (good tears) and i would highly recommend it! I would do it again tomorrow if i had the chance!

      "Chris really made the experience. He went above and beyond."

      Chris took us to an outside experience of a class at a resort with live music which was cool! The way he taught was easy to follow and engage with and he’s just super fun and chilled. The food and cafe area was lovely!

      The area was great. So calming being in the rice fields with two massage places around the area too!

      My accommodation was a home stay which was lovely.

      "3 weeks in paradise"

      The yoga teacher were incredible. Faye, Eleni, Alex and Ippo have so much knowledge and were always here for us. I was also so happy to have Angela, she does so much work and gave so much love and good vibes to all of us. The staff of Kosta Maria was sooo lovely, they carried about each of us so much. It's not easy to cook for so many people with so many different kinds of allergies and ways of eating. Always fresh and tasty things. Great job!

      "Fue una buena experiencia pero no lo recomendaría "

      Me gusto la oportunidad de conocer otro país y las playas increíbles. La calidad de las clases de vinyasa fue excelente pero la metodología de aprendizaje por momentos dejo que desear. La comida fue riquísima y local, lo cual no me esperaba; me sorprendió pero me gustó. Lo que más me llevó es el grupo humano.

      YogaUnion offered us the best experience we could ever imagine. The place is beautiful, the food absolutely delicious and the teachers... WOW ! They shared with us their deep knowledge with love, gratitude and compassion. They like to say that YogaUnion is our family now and it really feels like that! Thank you Ourania, Eleni, Faye, Ippo, Alex, Gaia, Jonah, Angela, Georgia and all the staff at Kosta Maria who had been the kindest!

      Forever grateful.

      Professional approach


      from Denmark, August 2022

      I was very happy to embark on this yoga journey. The course was intense and I learned a lot as I expected. I loved the kind staff at Kosta Maria. The location was beautiful!

      I had many expectations before which were fulfilled - here they are:

      - I hoped it would be tough training physically > it really was!

      - I wanted to learn a holistic view on yoga > there was a good variation of various perspectives on yoga

      - I expected it to be intense/focused > it was actually a big pressure mentally, but I am still happier I did this then doing the 200h over a year.

      - Not too spiritual > They gave us introductions to the spritiual world but didnt pressure us into it, like chanting etc, and that was really nice

      - Understand myself better > I really do!

      I am so humble with all the knowledge I have received.

      "Incredible Experience"

      I am so grateful for this experience! The teachers were so passionate, knowledgeable, well-spoken and engaging. I learned a lot about yogic philosophy, history and anatomy on top of yogic alignment and teaching structure. The shala was beautiful and unlike many of the commenters here, I really loved the large class size. There were two classes that occurred simultaneously and we would eat meals together, so there was always new people to meet. The two group sizes were about 30 and 18. One thing to note, however, is that the Fire shala definitely had a more beautiful space than the Earth shala, so I would highly recommend requesting to be put in the Fire group. Everyone that worked at YogaUnion was a joy to get to know: the housekeepers, shala cleaners, and cooks were so thoughtful and generous and kind. The rice fields were a beautiful place to live and practice. And the food -- ah the food! I will miss it so much. A beautiful balance of Indonesian and global dishes. As a vegan, I couldn't be happier.


      from Germany, July 2022

      "Great place to start your journey"

      The curriculum was quite comprehensive with anatomy, philosophy and alignment as well as 'doing' yoga. I enjoyed the wholistic approach. More theoretical lessons were taught with everyone sitting on the floor which was exhausting at first. The combination of theory and practice was perfect to explore and dive deeper into the concepts.

      Quality of teachers was good and appreciated all around. However, teachers are not known upon booking, so it might be a surprise who will be teaching the month you are there.

      The hotel staff at Kosta Maria were incredibly kind and accomodating. Always ready to help and easy to laugh with. You made this very special! I loved the food, regular meal times and the general standard that was kept. Cleanliness was perfect and my room had the best view over the ocean.

      Finally, I was blown away with the other students. They were caring and kind, always friendly and a pleasure to be around. This community made everything so enjoyable and could be relied upon to help whenever help was needed.

      from France, July 2022

      "Life changing experience in beautiful Greece"

      Before I booked the training, I spend a lot of time reading reviews from former students and I was kind of skeptical. It sounded too perfect to be true. But this training has been a complete life changing experience. I was not 100% sure I wanted to be a yoga teacher before the training, but now I don't see myself do anything else. Nothing can make me as happy and as connected to my true self than yoga.

      We were very lucky to form a strongly connected group of students, with beautiful and sweet people. Everyone genuinely cared about the others from day one. We spend theses three weeks in a loving and caring environment where everyone was safe to dedicate and surrender themselves to their practice. I made friends for life, and I feel so lucky about it!

      About the teachers (Rachel and Ippoliti aka Ippo or Ippopo or Chop Chop), they were beyond expectation and I will remember their teaching and their personalities my whole life, no doubt. They did not only taught us what we needed to know for the exam, they also shared their experience as yogis and human beings and inspired me in so many ways.

      Before the training, I had only been introduced to asana and pranayama. But learning about philosophy, anatomy and alignment helped me deepen my practice so much more than before. It feels like I have a whole ocean of knowledge about yoga in front of me and a life time will not be enough to learn about half of it.

      Many thanks to Kostas and his family who also made this training special! Love

      the teachers and the training itself was amazing, although we only learned how to plan 30min lessons, we will be able to apply this knowledge to create 1hour lessons, but we have to do this on our own time.

      "Great training with knowledgeable teachers!"

      My overall experience at YogaUnion was great. The teachers Ippoliti, Rachel and Eleni were all very knowledgeable and kind! The classes were informative and the teachers were all available for questions all the time. The staff of the accommodation were also very kind and caring. The food they provided was always delicious! When I felt sick to my stomach the staff took me under their wing, adapted the food for me and kept on asking if I was ok every day!

      "YogaUnion is amazing"

      Walking to the shala through the rice fields every morning was magical. The chefs were very accommodating to all food allergies and the vegan choices were really good. Faye and Himanshu were amazing instructors, I couldn't have asked for a better 200 hour YTT. The training is challenging but in the best way.

      Sarah Haghighi

      from Italy, June 2022


      I feel blessed I chose this YTT. I could not have hoped for a more perfect training. I still can’t believe it really happened.

      What I liked most:

      -Location: gorgeous shala in the middle of peaceful ricefields; isolated yet close to Ubud city center which is great for food and shopping

      -Teachers: Fay, Himanshu and Spyros are all amazing teachers. I loved how they pushed us physically in the vinyasa practice. Their sense of humour was crucial to push ourselves and memorize the most important things. It was a lot in 3 weeks but I had so much fun!

      -Organization: perfect, everything was clear and the accomodation/meals are located very close to the shala

      "This was a beautiful and knowledgable experience! "

      Oh where to start? I absolutely loved my teacher training in Palairos.

      Faye is an absolute weapon when it comes to yoga & teaches in a very straight forward way. She is super clear on what she teaches & believes in, gives constructive feedback & pushes everyone to be their better self.

      Laila is a very gentle soul with amazing knowledge about breath work, meditation, yin & nidra yoga, but also very good in breaking down difficult arm balancing asanas. Together they were the perfect yin/yang harmony. Not to forget Jonas, the anatomy teacher: I absolutely loved these classes! Jonas has a talent to explain very complex subjects in small very easily digestible pieces. If you get Jonas for anatomy you are in for a treat (beware of the dry humour, haha).

      Thank you 3 for an unforgettable & knowledgeable teacher training. I learned soo much! Forever grateful.

      The place we stayed in Palairos 'foodpath' is a 5 min walk down to the beach & surrounded by mountains, absolutely gorgeous & a truly authentic Greek place. The food was super diverse, prepared with fresh produce & always tasted amazing! You could feel the love Adonis & Elli put into it. Both Adonis & Elli were always there when you needed them & took care of everything for you. Thank you so much for opening your house & make it a home for us.

      I would definitively recommend coming here for your teacher training.

      Everything was perfect. There were so many people taking care of us allowing us to have the best experience possible. Faye and Leila are great teachers and challenged us as well as there were always there to help when it took a bit longer to understand some Asana or theories. The Anatomy classes by Jonas were great as well! The atmosphere in the place was super friendly and the food was always fresh, very tasty and with a great variety. The Hostel is pretty and only a 5 minute walk from the gorgeus sea. We were 13 people in the course and I'm very sure that all of us had an amazing time and learned so much. I came to Greece with hardly any expectations, but If I have had any, they'd be highly overexceeded.

      This yoga teacher training was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.

      Our teachers, Ippoliti and Rachel were very complementary, both excellent teachers, I've learnt so much on both the theoretical and practical sides of Yoga. My pratice of meditation has improved so much!

      The chef is the kindest person you'll ever meet, he always wants to make sure we like the food he cooks and we all were SO excited for every meal. The whole group had a very good connexion, we very much enjoyed each other's company !

      The hotel is nice and simple, some incredibly came to nap in the garden which made my stay as I love animals.

      Palairos is a beautiful town with a beach that is still relatively untouched, we very much enjoyed going for a swim everyday after class.

      A special thanks to Ippoliti who was incredibly helpful and kind, we will miss you <3

      The food is amazing, balanced, fresh ingredients, delicious fruits, vegetarians, vegan.

      The documents given to the students to understand the class were also very very done and amazing material.

      You will definitely learn how to be an excellent certified Yoga teacher.

      Everything about this training was perfect. The location was breathtaking, the food and accommodation was great and the teaching was outstanding. The course was well balanced between physical asana practice, meditation, lectures and alignment classes. The teachers were so helpful (especially Ippoliti 🤍) and were always willing to help you if needed. The group size was perfect and we made such a great connection with one another; I have definitely made some friends for life in my fellow yoga teachers. Ourania was amazing and so full of knowledge, and when she taught us her classes were so fun! The course was so incredible that I actually extended my trip and stayed an extra week to complete the 50 hour Yin Teacher Training course which was equally as magical. I will be thankful of YogaUnion forever and I am glad to be a part of the YogaUnion family. Also there was a baby kitten at the hostel and it was the cutest thing ever.

      This 3 week intensive course has been the most magical expierence I have had in my life so far. Everything was absolutely amazing: the place (very authentic Greek village), the hostel and the family who runs it (lovely people always ready to help and make sure we had everything), the instructors (Fay, Spyros and Ourania) were wonderful human beings who gave us much more than what they were supposed to, the shala and the magical view, the yoga and meditation classes and workshops...I could go on and on. I am so grateful I decided to embark on this journey with Yoga Union Bali family and am so excited about everything that is coming ahead. Rarely have I felt so connected with life, nature and people. Thank you so so much for everything you did for us and I will always carry you in my heart as well as the other 19 amazing girls I had the chance to meet and that I now call family. I am sure we will meet again as positive energy attracts positive people!

      teaching quality was also outstanding and I learnt so much - thanks so much to Faye, who was incredible. Ourania was also an amazing teacher and Spyros was so helpful and kind. The food and accommodation also massively exceeded expectations. It was some of the best 3 weeks of my life and I massively recommend doing it, even if you are not sure about it. Do not worry about not being good enough because everyone arrives thinking their practice is not strong enough it does not matter! I was not intending on teaching afterwards but loved the teaching aspect and fell in love with yoga even more that now I want to start teaching and preparing for my 300 hour! I also met so many amazing people and everyone was so lovely and friendly.

I looked forward to every morning to pranayama and meditation with Kati, who showed me the way to understand and love myself more. I liked that we had a lot of people on the course, as it allowed me to create a worldwide network and see many different levels of strength and flexibility, but also what people could struggle with.

      "Devoted alignment instructor"

      Our alignment classes were amazing. I feel honored to have learned alignment from Himanshu. He is a devoted, dynamic and technical instructor. He is both knowledgeable and passionate about teaching yoga. Himanshu was able to teach our class all of the major alignments of yoga positions and gave us practical knowledge of using yoga. Himanshu personally pushed me to new limits and he wasn't afraid to demand the best of our entire class. During my 23 day course with him my strength, stamina, and flexibility all improved dramatically. I was able to do new poses I had never tried before. We started teaching immediately, so this helped me feel fully prepared for my final demo. We built up everything slowly and methodically. Himanshu is also excellent at guiding his students through more subtle things like breathwork. I found at the end of my course I was able to go deeper into my meditation and pranayama. He truly equipped me to be a better yoga practitioner.

      Should you have any reservations, just let them all go !

      The people, the location, the practice, the atmosphere... I don't even know where to begin and where to end to. If you are looking for a Yoga Teacher Training in Bali, YogaUnion includes the whole package of a complete experience - do a favour to yourself and book with them.

      Before proceeding with my booking I did an extensive research and also visited multiple Yoga Teacher Trainings around Bali - there is no other YTT I can compare with what YogaUnion has to offer.

      The yoga practice was excellent and the teachers very thorough. What I liked the most was the alignment classes where every day we took 2 hours to analyse each and every posture - an open platform for discussion, demonstration and practice.

      Try to book as early as possible and put in a request to join the rice fields group if there is still availability.

      Always grateful to have met all these people; especially Ourania who is the one who put all this together - no words can describe her energy and kindness...

Celine is a warrior goddess with the best flows that leave you feeling empowered and strong. The location in the rice fields was breathtaking and allowed the freedom of the mind to be truly present.

The shala and restaurant were incredible, the breakfast was the best meal, so many fruits, muesli, homemade coconut yogurt, sometimes pancakes and French toasts. Everyone was really nice, I had an incredible time there. Such a life-changing experience!! Also cheaper than with other organisations while it was really incredible!

      "Great teachers!"

      Our teacher Himanshu did an amazing job in making classes fun but also pushing us to bring out the most. He shared his incredible wisdom with us in such a way that we were free to take with us whatever resonated with us.

      Also most of the other teachers were amazing and I am truly great full to have had the opportunity to learn from them.

      "Amazing course, every class was 10/10!"

      Knowledge: the teachers were incredible with asana, anatomy and philosophy- I learnt SO much and most of all I know it will be retained because there was so much passion and care given by Aaka (philosophy) and Spyros (anatomy). The daily asana classes and vinyasa classes were also super strong (Nikol, Himanshu).

      Accommodation: mansion resort is what honeymoon dreams are made of! I paid extra for my own double room and absolutely worth the extra £! Daily room cleans, the friendliest staff and places to work/revise. The Shalas (where you practice yoga and do classes) were paradise! So beautiful!

      Note: you aren’t staying in town, but there is a shuttle that goes a few times a day for free or a taxi costs £8 one way! Scooter hire possible around the corner too!

      Food: good! I’m veggie so happy it was all vegetarian. Would’ve loved a coffee supply in the afternoon but the cafe serves ice coffee for £3.50.

      "Amazing mind, body and soul changing experience!"

      Thank you yoga union for the best experience. When i read the reviews beforehand i didn't believe that it was really possible to learn and progress so much and have a life altering experience in such a short time but it was all true. Spyros, Ourania, Himanshu, Celine and Sirios were so dedicated and gave so much energy and passion throughout the three weeks. They answered our endless questions every time like it was the first and really pushed us to step outside our comfort zone. Every time you thought you had given your all they wouldn't let you give up...thanks Himanshu!! Being immersed in such an intense program for 3 weeks has definitely made me see a lot of things differently and develop a much more holistic view of yoga. The energy of all the teachers has been really inspirational and gives you the confidence that you really can achieve anything if you put your mind to it!


      from Germany, January 2020

      "Thank you for becoming a part of Yoga UNION!"

      I liked in general the atmopshere created by the teachers, trainees, Karmayogis,...

      I liked the schedule.

      I liked the food (maybe more variation in fruits).

      I liked the location (nice Hotel, away from busy Ubud but still good connection to it).

      I liked the general structure of how the training was build up (bootm-up).

      I liked that I learnd a very good alignment for myself.

      I liked that we started teaching each other pretty early (eventough just one by one).

      I liked the internationality of the training.

      I like the special events like the cacao ceremony, the silent walk or 108 sun salutation.

      I liked the devotion and passion of every teacher.

      "Transformational and comprehensive "

      Knowledgeable teachers in an immersive and accesible environment that stimulates both personal growth and deeper understanding of yogic way of life.

      The schedule is gruelling and intense, but it’s not meant to be a relaxing retreat, rather an intensive learning program to prepare experienced practitioners for a future of guiding yogis through flows and a more mindful practice.

      "Great training with amazing teachers - had a fantastic time"

      The quality was amazing. I just chose by the price and the dates and didnt know much about YogaUnion before, so I was really surprised by the amazing quality. Our teacher Himanshu was brilliant, and so were the other teachers. I had a beautiful single room with an overview over the ricefields, it was the best room i ever had in my live. I am happy that I chose the training in the ricefields cause it was so quiet and peaceful there, and the shala was so lovely. Also the whole staff of the restaurant was super friendly and the meals were delicious.

      So, what else to say then: go for it! Can highly recommend Yoga Union!

      Sending love,

      "Outstandingly good TTC"

      This was such a wonderful and unique experience. It’s hard to return back home after having had three weeks in this completely different and amazing retreat. Spyros and Ourania have created an amazing loving, caring and nurturing environment for yogis and future teachers. They are truly inspiring teachers. Also, we were lucky to have had Himanshu in our morning asana practices. He is passionate about yoga and has an amazing teaching style that has helped me to push my own limits and become stronger every week. I have learned so much through all of them. Each teacher brings their own personality to the Shala. Staying in the rice field was like being on another planet. I loved every minute being there! Thanks for this wonderful training!

      "Good training to learn more about yoga for beginners"

      LOVE Nikol's sweaty and fast pace Vinyasa classes =D

      Shala and bedrooms are all in one place in The Mansion, love not having stress to commute.

      The training helped deepen my knowledge on asana and human anatomy, which I was interested in but know very little of.

      We learnt and taught the traditional Sun Salutations, my favourite thing to do.


      from Switzerland, January 2020

      "Passionate about yoga and teaching"

      Great place to learn more about yoga. You can feel they like to teach and that there is a lot of passion about what they do! I love it! I learned a lot for my personal daily practice!

      "An incredible, transformative experience well worth it"

      There really is no way to describe the outstanding quality and organisation of the yoga teacher training at YogaUnion. From the wonderful and professional teachers to the beautiful location in the rice fields, the high quality of the training and materials used and the care and attention placed on each individual taking the training, the experience from start to finish went above and beyond my expectations.

      The training is well structured and covers all you need to know, building your knowledge and confidence to teach yoga. The yoga shala itself in the rice fields is beautiful and the accommodation is excellent, within a short walking distance from the yoga shala. The restaurant where we had our meals is also just a short 2-minute walk away, and the food served was delicious, vegetarian (with vegan options too) and plentiful.

      The teachers are fantastic, professional and friendly, and the quality of the training, on the whole, is outstanding.

      This yoga teacher training was well worth the time, money and energy, and exceeded my expectations in all the best ways. I highly recommend YogaUnion for anyone who wants to get qualified teaching yoga, or simply deepen their own practice.

      "Amazing YTT with excellent yoga teachers"

      The Shala is an amazing and beautiful place where you'll have your daily practice and classes. It is located in the middle of the rice fields. Amazing sunset, amazing views, so peaceful and beautiful.

      All the accomodations and the restaurant where you'll have all your meals are within a walking distance (5-10 min) through the rice fields

      The teachers are all really experienced, impressive, with a very strong knowledge and each with their own style. You'll learn so much from Himanshu, Ourania, Spyros, Nikol ... I am so grateful for getting to learn so much from them.

      It's an intensive, demanding, very serious training and program from meditation, yoga practice, alignement, anatomy to philosophy lessons every day. It is really complete and gives you a very strong basis.

      It was a life changing experience, I would definitely do it again !

      Meeting people from all over the world who were on similar paths for self development and discovery was such a beautiful experience. Connections were made that will last for a lifetime! I also loved how challenging the asana classes were. It was tough but in a good way. Sometimes I would surprise my self and didn’t realize I could bend in certain ways that I did 🤣

      "Beautiful location. Incredible people. Amazing experience."

      I was located in the rice fields and couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and tranquil atmosphere to do my yoga teacher training. The training was very physically intense, but incredibly rewarding. It’s hard work and you should know that going into it. The teachers, for the most part, are incredible and very well educated. They truly care about you becoming the best yoga teacher you can be. The food was pretty good overall. Yes it got repetitive by the end, but that’s to be expected. The ladies that prepare the meals are so kind. I loved this experience and wouldn’t change a thing, truly!


      from Germany, December 2019

      I did not know what to expect when I booked this. My overall experience was very good. The first days I thought that I would never be able to do this but in the end I surprised myself and I guess it had to do with the spirit and everything around me, thank you for helping me grow. Ourania and Spyros are just magical people, they have such a strong positive and loving vibe, that you just cannot resist. The place is just magical with all the rice fields and the village feeling but being close to Ubud’s city center aswell.

      It was a pleasure to be there!

      "The best"

      I am so happy I chose this course. I looked at probably thousands in many different countries and this one by far exceeded my expectations. It was hard. Really hard. They recommend that you read a few books before coming. Read them. They recommend you have a yoga routine before coming. Do it. I did a little bit 3 weeks isn’t enough. It’s so much information. But once you accomplish it, it’s so rewarding. The rest of the group I was with were some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. We became a family and it was beautiful. You laugh you cry, I have some bruises... but all worth it. For the super affordable price it’s so much more than you would think. Nikki was an outstanding instructor. She pushed you enough to see what you are capable of and you truly surprise yourself. Spyros was the best anatomy instructor. He is so passionate! Thank you Yoga Union!!!

      All the instructors are very knowledgeable and experienced. Everything was well-organized: classes, shala, accommodation and food. There were lectures on anatomy, philosophy and asana labs which gave me a deeper understanding of yoga. As a result I feel safer and more confident in my own practice. The location, a shala in the rice fields, is just breathtaking! If you're going to take this course, take the time to enjoy every moment of it and the beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

      I loved yogaunion. All the love, caring souls, the fun, the food, the room and all the interesting+fun classes. Everything was better than I expected and I would wish for everyone to have this kind of experience. Himanshu makes the classes so fun and yet you learn so much! Also Ourania and Spyros where amazing. Ourania was so powerful yet so peaceful, she truly inspired me and gave me more hope. Spyros was down to earth amazing and made anatomy easier to learn. The school is tough tho. You have to study a lot and there is homework. But it is so worth all the hard work. I will defiantly visit again, always a home away from home. Thank you for this incredible experience!!

      The teachers are amazing. They teach you all you need to know about Asanas, alignment, variation and the benefits of it all. They are caring and teach you with a serious love and commitment to yoga. It's like a tough but caring love for all the students. I am grateful to Nikole who was our main teacher for all the effort patience and care she put into teaching us. Spiros and Ourania are wonderful too and really build a great yoga community here.It is a lot of information to take in, in 3 weeks so just rest and clear your mind in between classes to take it all in again...and later for the exam. The teaching structure starts right away and you build your flow step by step, and teach each other. It's a intense physical mental and emotional , but amazing experience and people grow into a yogi family! I will forever be thankful i did this! Namaste

      My experience with Yoga Union has been amazing. The accommodation at The Mansion was extremely comfortable, it was a beautiful resort. The course itself was very informative, and every single one of our teachers did their best to teach us everything they can in the time we spent there. The daily Vinyasa practices have been life-changing, I felt far stronger and more fit at the end of the retreat because of them. All in all the experience has been incredible and I couldn't have asked for a better course.

      I pretty much have nothing negative to say at all! The team at YogaUnion is wonderful; they are so knowledgable and make sure all the information is presented in a way that is easy to understand and remember without losing its significance. Nikol, Spyros, and Ourania are truly amazing teachers and human beings. From the moment I arrived to the training, they felt like family. The accommodation was stunning and the daily schedule was busy but structured perfectly so you don't get burnt out. There was also enough free time to explore the amazing town of Ubud!

      I'm so happy I chose this YTT. It has been the best gift I have ever given myself. I'm coming away from this training feeling very confident in my abilities as a yoga teacher and also just as a better and more grounded human being in all aspects!

      The team at YogaUnion as worked so hard to put together an AMAZING course for their students, and it shows! If you're considering taking your 200hr training with YogaUnion, DEFINITELY DO IT! You will not regret it, I promise.

      "Dreamy Location, OK Training, More like 30 hours"

      Anatomy lessons were very accessible. Difficult concepts explained in simple english and with visuals. Liked that we reviewed the technical details of the morning class (ie which meridians) right after.

      John Rafael Perez

      from United States, September 2019


      This course was magic. The location was amazing, right in the center of the rice fields. The guest house I stayed in absolutely exceeded expectations. And I enjoyed the vegetarian food that was provided to us three times a day during the training.

      The instructors were of the highest caliber. Himanshu is an incredible yoga teacher (one of the BEST I have ever had) who inspired all of us to push ourselves and reach our full potential. Ourania and Spyros taught alignment and anatomy and were incredibly knowledgable as well as fantastic teachers with the ability to give the clearest instructions and explanations. All three were so kind, genuine, and compassionate, and they really looked out for each one of us during the training to make sure we were happy, healthy and able to focus only on yoga.

      During the course, we were exposed to multiple style of yoga including yin, vinyasa, ashtanga, and hatha. We also explored multiple types of pranayama/meditation every morning. The workshops, where we worked on specific foundational postures, improved most participants' practices almost instantly. People were learning headstands, arm balances, and back bends faster and more safely than they had ever done prior to the training.

      I cannot express how highly I would recommend this training. It has changed my practice, and my life, and I hope to one day return to beautiful Ubud to pop in and experience even a little bit of it again one day.

      "The most amazing spiritual and physical journey"

      To start with, coming for a yoga teacher training was the best decision I took in my life. If you are still hesitating about it - don’t! Just do it, you will gain so much from it, regardless if you are going to teach after it or not. Bali on its own is a magical place that just has some sacred energy and power to release bad things we are caring around. But in a combination with such amazing teachers as Ourania and Himanshu, and all other incredible people you are going to meet here this experience becomes a complete transformation. It is such a serene place where you can be yourself, with yourself, but never alone!

      The training is hard, and you will be challenged physically and emotionally. There will be moments when you just want to give up, but you will have such an incredible supportive group of people around you that you will feel - together we can do it! No matter what your reasons for this training are, you will grow, you will become better! I am not saying that all your troubles will disappear or that you will become a great teacher over night - both need practice and daily work, but YogaUnion here in Ubud is a perfect place to start!

      To my group mates from the September course I just want to say once again how happy I am that I met you all. You all helped me to grow and have more faith in myself, I believe we helped each other. I wish everyone the best of luck in everything you do! And to our amazing teachers - THANK YOU for sharing your knowledge with us!

      "A beautiful journey to learn about yoga but also yourself"

      The ricefield yoga shala is like a dream. Every little detail surrounding the place is unique. (Yoga Union has different classes in Bali and we were the ricefield group and I think for me it was for the best). The remoted place from the busy Ubud, the sounds of nature, birds and silence (sometimes), the little pathway to our beautiful shala, the restaurant 308 where Ayung's chef, Putu & Yoga (yes it's his name how amazing is that!) who serve you night the little lightening fireflies and sky full of stars... it was magic.

      We were all spread in the little hotels around the pathway, like neighbours in a little village. My hotel (Nirwa Ubud Karma) was very confortable I can not complain.

      The owners of Yoga Union, Ourania and Spyros (probably the cutest couple you will ever see) perfectly illustrate the definition of love or devotional love. They share love, between themeselves of course, but also with their students. And it was really important and good to feel loved and supported by them during this (intense) training. The whole training crew was fantastic: Himanshu, Jonas, Saavas, Juan Carlos, Florence and the help of Pablo. They were very professional and competent.

      I'm really glad I have chosen this training to learn how to teach and now spread Yoga, I couldn't think of a better course. Thank you again Teachers and Students of August's session to make this training such a beautiful and unforgettable experience 🙏

      "Memories that shape your life"

      The Yoga teacher training with YogaUnion was an unforgettable experience. I was first not sure if I should do a Yoga training at all but the three weeks with my fellow Yogis, the teachers and the magic of Bali proved me that it was the right decision. So everybody who is reading this comment and still thinking about whether booking a retreat or not, do it!

      The teachers here at YogaUnion were all excellent! We had a great variety of personalities and styles of teaching - so there is really something for everybody to learn from. I always felt I was in a safe space. The teachers are professional, experienced, patient and always showed a great understanding for us students. I particularly liked the Vinyasa classes with Savvas (which were very challenging and hard) and the anatomy lessons with Jonas (he made the topic so interesting that I actually want to study more about the physical body in the future).

      If you are looking for a once in a life time experience then this is the program for you. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career as a Yoga teacher, or wanting to take this course just for self development in your life and your practice, then I recommend this training! I was challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally in the most beautiful ways. I pushed passed limits, I laughed, I cried, I felt an immense feeling of gratitude for being there in beautiful Bali amongst the rice fields, practicing in the most gorgeous shala, with a group of talented and inspiring yogis from all over the world, being taught by a group of amazing teachers who were willing to share their knowledge and wisdom with us, I felt SO blessed. The information I learned during this course is something that I will keep with me forever, for my own personal practice and as a Yoga teacher. The cafe where we had our daily meals was wonderful, the staff was very attentive, extremely kind and they worked so hard to keep us well fed all day. I am vegan and had many options for tasty vegan (and gluten free) food. The hotel where I was placed (Restu) was good, I had a couple of tiny issues but they were resolved as soon as it was possible. The whole experience was just amazing, I can't say enough great things about it, I will hold this journey with me in my heart forever, and cannot wait to be back in Ubud again.

      Vasso was very good sharing her knowledge of Yin yoga. The training she delivered was very good.

      The location was lovely - peaceful and relaxing, the perfect environment for this training course.

      "Most transformational 3 weeks"

      The shala in the rice fields is magical! Ourania, Spyros and team have created an oasis in paradise! Be prepared for hard work, with enough lightness of being to keep you captivated for 3 weeks. Nothing is too much of a problem, their manner is so warm and welcoming you are made to feel like friends and family from day 1.

      The variety of instructors was amazing. The level of instruction was brilliant for beginners to advanced. I was a beginner concerned about teaching in a group situation but their foundation is so solid and they ease you into the teaching so gently it starts to feel very natural early on. I am not even home a week post the course and I have already started training clients with so much confidence and ease.. Something I would never think possible just a month ago. The walk to the shala from the various accommodations along the lane is something that will stay in my mind forever. Its such a treat, I walked barefoot many days! The 3 meals a day are substantial and you get lovely ginger lemongrass tea and water at the shala every day.

      The balance between class and down time is great. Use evenings or some of the day down time to read a little of the training manual daily. If you leave it to the end just before exams it can be pressurised which you dont need. Make sure your body is ready for the every day long classes or dont feel bad to sit out of a few classes to observe.

      Carmen Heunis

      from South Africa, September 2019

      The shala is magical, its location out of the hustle and bustle of Ubud but close enough if you need to dial back into reality. The way the classes were structured. The amount of Yin we physically practiced. The amount of rest time and amount of class time is well balanced. The number of different teachers taking the various curriculum is great. The way that you become part of the family during the course with the very hands on owners and teachers is beautiful. They facilitate a great environment. I would and have recommended their courses to many already. I would go back!

      The training exceeded by far my expectations. The location is surreal, the teachers are all amazing and excellent in their own fields, and so incredibly generous, the food was simply delicious. I couldn't recommend it more and would definitely do it again...and again!

      "Yoga Student "

      The instructors at this training were phenomenal. Each one had their own specialty and interest and you could tell how passionate they were not just about what they were teaching, but passionate about sharing it with us.

      The amount of information and knowledge I gained about the practice of yoga, anatomy, and philosophy is priceless. It is quite amazing how much I was able to learn and retain in a matter of 3 weeks and so much of it has to do with the instructors chosen for this months training.

      Throughout the 3 weeks yoga union was always very receptive to any concerns we had, and any needs that needed to be met. Most of us were traveling from all over the world and I truly felt safe in their hands.

      "Above and beyond what I expected"

      The location and setting of the Shala was breathtaking. A lot of care has been taken to create such a beautiful Shala in the rice fields. It was a privilege to be surrounded by the nature and magic of the real Ubud every day, especially as the Shala is away from the busyness of Ubud centre.

      The teaching quality was extremely high and we benefited from being taught by a good variety of teachers, each with their own charm & niche. The teachers made me feel very welcome & safe, they created an open environment and took good care of everybodies needs throughout the course.

      There was a good balance between different yoga styles & workshops throughout the course.

      The course definitely prepared the students to become teachers, especially given the time frame. I also had ample opportunity to develop & strengthen my own practice.

      The anatomy & philosophy lessons were well taught and gave a good alternative perspective to the purely physical aspect of Yoga.

      The food provided at a nearby restaurant was much better than expected. There was a good variety of food and the staff even very kindly listened to any requests/suggestions. They provided additional food for various dietary requirements too.

      Overall I had a truly amazing time & will forever be grateful to YogaUnion for such a rich & fulfilling experience.

      The course was simply excellent. Every one of the teachers was an authentic version of themselves which provided us with a great variety of teaching styles and perspectives, and their passion for yoga and the yogic lifestyle in general was truly inspiring. The course was exactly what I needed at this time of my life, and the whole experience was more enriching than I had ever imagined it could be.

      "YTT at the mansion"

      Accomodation was much nicer than expected which was an unexpected but pleasant surprise, the teachers were all awesome and super understanding/accomodating for our injuries and other niggles, the daily schedule was good, and lastly, not having to find and cook my own food after big days was such a plus! Would recommend these guys for sure :)


      from United States, April 2019

      "march'19 yogafam!"

      Going into this trip without any expectations, I was completely blown away by the whole experience!

      1) The course is really rigorous – you learn about yoga holistically through 3 main classes, asana (postures) alignment, philosophy of yoga and anatomy. Through these classes you get a better understanding of the physical and psychological/spiritual aspects of yoga. The course also touches on pranayama (breathing), meditation and the practice of teaching a class. We were assigned to prepare a class almost every day, and the length of the lesson increased incrementally as the course went on.

      2) In terms of accommodation (and this will likely not happen to your group) our group was not able to practice at the regular shala, and were relocated to the Mansion Hotel in Ubud instead, which is a really nice resort so no complaints there! I was sharing a room with another person and we had a whole family suite to ourselves.

      3) Probably one of the best takeaways from the course is the community that you find. I met a whole bunch of people of different ages from all over the world, yet because everyone had the same open-minded attitude towards learning and growing, these differences seemed inconsequential. I've made some really amazing friends from this course, and even after the course ended people still hung out in Bali/when one person ends up in another person's country! If anything I'd advise people maybe to extend their stay in Bali for a bit longer to spend it w new friends

      "Life changing experience! reborn! "

      Everything was better than I expected. As I already have had a few yoga retreat program experiences already, I thought I sort of knew what would be coming. But you know what, it was an amazing experience getting a great awareness of myself and confidence to become closer to who I want to be. Most of all, I was happy all the time!

      Instructions from teachers were just right, not too much so I had a room to grow myself, but not too less so I could learn the basics for my foundation. Thanks for all teachers and people helped the program. Love Yoga Union!

      I loved the teachers, the whole experience was incredible and has helped me on my journey of becoming a yoga teacher. The learning was fun and interactive. Everything was an exciting challenge! We were well looked after and the teachers made sure we were all ok every step of the way! The lessons were amazing and I learnt so many things every day. I met some amazing people that I hope will be friends for life. I hope to come back to Yoga Union some day! I really recommend the school to anyone who is looking to become a yoga teacher.

      Everything. The growth of myself mentally, physically and spiritually. The teachers are incredible and supportive and will be for the future as well. The amount of anatomy covered makes me feel confident in myself and my teaching going forward in life which doesn't happen in a lot of other courses so I've heard. I could not fault this at all.

      "Wonderful Experience! "

      I loved the entire experience. The teachers were incredibly knowledge and truly live the Yogi philosophies. Our daily vinyasa classes were all different and so amazingly creative, I've been spoiled- and now I'm struggling to find classes at home that even come close to their wonderful classes. I finished the program with so much wonderful knowledge, and felt totally and completely ready to start teaching my own classes.

      I loved everything about the training, but mostly the teachers and our group. The energy that we created and shared with each other was very unique and it was really hard to say goodbye.

      All the teachers are passionate about sharing their knowledge and love of yoga. The practice and the program is challenging but the environment very supportive so at the end of the training I felt more confident with myself and also with my ability to teach yoga to others.

      All our classes were in a shala overlooking rice fields so the surrounding is perfect for practicing and learning.

      "What an amazing experience"

      I loved every single part of it. Ofcourse there are ups & downs but it was an amazing experience.

      The course is really well put together. From the first week you start teaching small lessons which seems very scary but after 2,5 week you are really ready to teach your final 30 min class. You also learn about philosophy, anatomy and meditation and you will be tested on every single one of them. This seems like a lot but this really helps your to become a all round yoga teacher at the end. You are being introduced to a lot of different yoga styles in the afternoon, and every morning there is a Vinyasa Flow class. The yoga classes that you are getting are so well put together and they are making sure that you can practice the full class with every level. Your own yoga skills will definetely improve this weeks!

      The teachers are amazing people and teachers, they are there to help you with whatever your need, if it's yoga oriënted or personally. You're never alone!

      For the accommodation, please keep in mind that you're coming to Bali and besides meeting a lot of awesome yogi's, you will also meet a lot of bugs. The bungalows are really open, but you will get used to that :) Just take enough bug spray and long pants.

      And for the food .. The food is great, healthy and tasty. You are eating at the same restaurants 3 times a day so it's not that weird that sometimes you are being served the same food. And you can always eat somewhere else if you like!

I was able to put all my energy into myself. 10/10 would recommend Ourania, Spyros, Sarah & Jac. They each have such unique gifts and pour into their students. Go, go, go!!!

      I must say that I didn't know exactly what to expect from a yoga teacher training but I was positively surprised by the passion and the excellent skills of the teachers and their dedication. For me it was one of the best things I did for myself. I feel like I learned a lot, had a good time with the people I met, saw some beautiful places, and grew as a person. I would totally recommend the experience. The teachers were great, very competent and open. And I liked that we had several experienced yoga teachers whose practice was very advanced and we learned different things from each one of them. Anatomy and philosophy were great too, a very interactive way of teaching. Also, the surroundings were beautiful. With some of the people I met, I will probably still be friends over years. The house we stayed in was very nice too. Overall, it was a great experience.

      Jennifer Bose

      from United States, July 2018

      "An amazing experience with friends and family made for life!"

      I would highly recommend Yoga Union to aspiring yoga teachers or people interested in deepening their practise. Even before I arrived for the training I had already experienced the warmth of the teachers through the correspondence I had with them. I had been very unwell before attending, and wasn’t sure if I would be able to or would be fit enough for the training. Yoga Union gave me the space to decide in my own time, offering support and guidance. Their compassionate responses gave me the confidence to take a chance and attend the training which was the best decision I have ever made!

      The training did not disappoint and from day one we began the challenging vinyasa classes and began to learn straight away. I loved the classes which were taught by a variety of teachers. Ourania’s vinyasa classes really are special and I loved Sarah’s yin, Spyros’ Hatha and Tony’s restorative classes! The yin was a perfect compliment to the vinyasa which our bodies really needed by the end of the first week. The days are long and practise challenging so make sure you step up your practise before you start the training.

      The theory teaching was in depth and we began teaching straight away which was the best way to learn. This was the best way of getting us to develop our teaching style and it really helped me to grow in confidence. I’d recommend reading the course books before you get there as it will really give you a solid foundation and knowledge that will help you through the course.

      Excellent instructors and wonderful group.


      from Australia, March 2018

      Very passionate teachers with lots of love for yoga and teaching students, learned a lot about alignment, the human body, philosophy and the asanas. The days were set up in a nice way by starting with meditation (techniques) in the morning followed by amazing yoga class of 1,5-2 hours by Ourania. The breakfast was the party of the day with fresh fruits and amazing porridge or black rice pudding. The asana class after breakfast were very insightful and I learned a lot by practicing the right postures and feeling the differences between right and wrong, but also learning how to correct myself and others. The philosophy lessons with Coralia were also very insightful and I learned a lot that I did not know yet about the background an theory of yoga. The anatomy classes were a bit scattered, also because the syllabus was missing pages but overall I learned more on how the human body functions in yoga. It was a great 3 weeks journey together with the 29 other students in which the first week was quite tough for the body, getting used to doing so much yoga asanas and sitting on the floor during the other classes but in week two and three that was totally fine. Overal good personal experience with some points for further improvement for next round of yoga teacher training.

      Everything was perfect - the accommodation, the area, food, other people on the course and most of all, the teachers.

      Our schedule was clear, well organized and thought of, our days were packed full of practice and lessons but never ever got boring. All requests from students were taken care of and we didn't have to worry about any details, we could just focus and enjoy our yoga practice.

      I could've never imagined that I would learn so many new things and connect with all these wonderful people. It was incredible to see everyone evolve and in the end teach their own classes.

      Such good value for money and a real life changing experience!

      Definitely would recommend for everyone to do their teacher training with Yoga Union, you will not regret it!

      What I loved about this teacher training is that: a. It develops you as a person on both the practical level and spiritual level, it really opens your eyes to yourself and makes you look very deep inside. B. Has a big focus on teaching, you are practically teaching from week 1 and that helps you feel so confident by the end. C. Finally, the location, the people, the food and the teachers made it all seem like a magical experience that just makes you smile everyday.

      The environment was incredible, walking past the rice fields each day was really beautiful. The actual yoga classes were amazing, both teachers are passionate and clear when directing their own Vinyassa lessons. Both teachers are capable of giving detailed and professional feedback as well as asana adjustments when asked.

      The food was amazing, really great vegan selection. Would have been good for protein other than Soy products however.


      from Great Britain, March 2018

      "Perfect location, great teaching, but a little disorganised "

      What I learnt was great and all came up in the exam. Our teachers had so much knowledge and shared lots of their personal experiences to help us understand how to adjust others in asanas, how to teach and to value what we will be doing professionally and many other things. They were open so we could ask questions at anytime and not feel like a burden. The nice thing about Ourania and Koralia is their personalities were opposites, so I felt I got a rounded view of whatever they were teaching. We started teaching and receiving feedback within days of starting which was daunting but great. I enjoyed having lessons in other styles of yoga along side Vinyasa.

      The location, living and studying amongst the picturesque padi/rice fields of Ubud, was perfect. We used two locations for our classes, both had stunning views and equipment such as pillows and blocks.

      I stayed at Gusti Garden, which was basic, but generally comfortable. The WiFi was better than the other location (Prashanti) and the owner was always really friendly and helpful if we needed anything. The complimentary umbrellas were much appreciated! Those on the course were put up at various guest houses along Sok Wayah.

      The food I had at Prashanti for breakfast, lunch and dinner was delicious, but I don’t know if I’d call it fully macrobiotic as advertised. It was vegan, Indonesian style.

      I had an amazing time with likeminded, supportive students many of whom I now have the honour of calling friends.

      I loved the location in the rice fields even though we were in Dragon fly for yoga and I was not living in Prashanti. Ubud is fantastic and I loved Bali!

      "Good Experience. "

      The shala we practiced in was beautiful. I learned a lot. I liked that we were introduced to other forms of yoga, besides Vinyasa, but I would have liked more explanation of those types. The teachers were knowledgeable, but not always the most organized. I met some really incredible women.
