Amazing and beautiful experience. I feel like no word could ever describe how magic this month with Akasha Yoga Academy was. This 200h yoga teacher training truly went beyond all my expectations. The training became a beautiful transformational journey and I’m forever grateful for that.
And this wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team of teachers who create a beautiful and safe space for all of us. All the knowledge, the wisdom and the love sharing during this course is priceless.
I highly recommend this course to everyone looking for a yoga teacher training. Believe me, you’ll be forever grateful for choosing this incredible school.

"Amazing experience with fantastic teachers/guest teachers. "
I didn’t know the Akasha family before, had a 200 YTT Hatha certificate and the 300hr Hatha/yin/pranayama/meditation course with Akasha sounded a good fit/continuation. I have to say it exceeded any expectations I had: fantastic teachers and guest teachers with immense knowledge of true yoga of the heart, in-depth, challenging, supportive, great mix of asana practices/lectures from going back to the source of ancient teachings to current researches in anatomy/philosophy, open, inclusive, pushing boundaries, all from the depth of our hearts with full of love ♥️♥️♥️ no words would give true justice to the experience with these guys! I’m really grateful to have become the member of this family 🙏🏻♥️🥰 thank you so much guys!

"Teachings of the Heart, from the Heart."
Traditional and authentic teachings of yoga, offered with love from the most caring teachers I have studied with. The course with Akasha is so much more than a "teacher training". This transformative experience will change the way you move through life, and offers a whole new perspective - both on and off the mat.
The course is very well structured, which allows what might be considered an "intense" 4 weeks to run extremely smoothly. A nurturing family environment ensures all are fully supported throughout the teachings.
I can only express full gratitude to all the teachers for sharing such valuable teachings, and creating a magical space for the integration of such.
I fully recommend this school, and if you are considering whether to dive into a training with Akasha Yoga Academy - follow your intuition. Somehow, with curiosity, you have arrived here. Feel into your heart, and you will land in the right place.
