Anton Kazantsev

Anton met his first teacher with whom he practiced Tantra yoga in Osho style at Raja Budhi Yoga. He started to practice Hatha yoga in the new Iyengar school in Moscow, but unfortunately, he suffered a knee and lower back injury that took him five years to recover from. In 2005, Anton started to practice Vipassana and this changed his life completely. Anton studied yoga therapy in Russia in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya. He studied Ashtanga Vinyasa, classical Iyengar yoga, Sukshma and Prana Vyayama, and Kundalini in the tradition of Dhirendra Brahmacharya.

"One of the best decisions I've made"

I really enjoyed all of the teachers in different ways. Each one of them brought a different dimension of learning and practice that made it so vaulable as a whole. I LOVE Anton, he truly is a great yogi and human being, not to mention he's hilarious. Vanessa is absolutely incredible and helped me greatly through some things that came up emotionally. Alex is one of my greatest teachers and I valued his lectures above all.

I loved the freedom of the practice and it truly is what you make it. Its a lot of yoga!! But now my body craves it. I stayed at HutSun and it was the best! had breakfast there every morning and Ging (the owner) is nothing short of accommodating. The pool is also great, especially on hot days during our lunch brakes. Plenty of great restaurants near by, no need to get a scooter. I made some lifelong friends and I couldn't be happier with my choice to do this retreat.

"The best gift you can offer yourself is here!"

This was the best TTC I could ever wish for, and I knew from the start I made the right choice. It felt right from the beginning to the end. The island is a paradise on it's own, and an amazing place to go on a spiritual journey and to reconnect with nature. The teachers are very inspiring and encourage you to make your own experience, without being dogmatic. You will receive a great amount of valuable information and the teachers really care! Note that this school is open to beginners as well. On a side note, the food is also sooo delicious and healthy. I am so blessed by this wonderful experience at Anahata, I recommend 100%.

"Wonderful experience @ Anahata Yoga Shala "

I liked everything. The location was paradise. The island is very special and you can feel such a special energy there. I especially liked the different personalities of the teachers. They were perfectly complementary to each other. Vanessa, Anton, Micha and Alex constituted very different personalities and had very different teaching styles. For me this diversity was actually the highlight. I learned so much and am very thankful for this beautiful experience. Next to the physical development, I learned so much more about myself. Thank you Anahata !

"A great month, learnt a lot & had a lot of fun."

Each teacher offered a completely different style and personality, which gives you the chance to pick and choose what works for you.

The course is physically demanding (about 4 hours of physical yoga per day) At first I hated this as I felt unfit but by week 3 was loving this and actually miss this now.

The food was amazing. Thanks to Pat and Irina!

We learnt the asanas well and I actually feel comfortable teaching them now, even with modifications.

We had a good number of opportunities to teach in a safe space which some great feedback from eachother and the teachers.

We connected a lot as a group. What an amazing group of people.

Great value for money.

The yoga space is beautiful and very close to the beach which was nice for the breaks.

"Great month of yoga, self recognition and strengthening. "

Great location . Surrounded by trees, beaches, jungle and wonderful restaurants. Shala is beautiful and well kept. The instructors were welcoming , knowledgable, friendly and helpful. They helped to ensure the group gelled well and flowed together. No drama. So much fun. It was an intense few weeks physically and for many, on an emotional level too. We left feeling confident and informed. Ready to teach lessons and further develop personal practice.

"Fantastic teacher training course."

If you are looking to do a TT course I highly recommend Anahata. The four teachers, Vanessa, Anton, Art and Jenny are all passionate, highly experienced and very diverse, so you receive instruction which is always of a high quality yet contrasting in its delivery. This is a real strength and for me, kept my motivation, engagement and commitment high throughout the 28 days, 8 hours a day!

At the end of the course I felt well prepared to lead classes working within my own yoga practice capabilities. On a personal level I thoroughly enjoyed the course, developing a more holistical understanding of yoga that I hope to incorporate into my life back in UK.

The yoga Shala is open on two sides so you look out onto the jungle,birds and nature. As the days are long, having the feeling of being outside connecting with the beautiful surroundings was important to me.

The food is delicious. Range of vegan dishes from a local cafe/restaurant served in the smaller Shala.

Anahata is very close to the beach, so during the lunch break and after classes it is quick and easy to have a swim/watch the sunset/walk along to Zen beach. It is also close to a range of cafes for healthy snacks/ juices.

"Paradise yoga teacher training"

Art, Anton, and Vanessa contrast and compliment each other so well with their different teaching styles. Classes were balanced and a challenge for all levels spiritually, physically, and mentally. Restorative classes balanced the strenuous vinyasa. Meditation and breathwork pulled it all together into a neat package.

I felt these teachers are here for the passion and sharing. A nice mix of visiting teachers as well.

The shala is wonderful and often filled with songs of tropical birds. The shala attracts yogi classmates who are just wonderful people.

"Asanas for Life"

I loved that Anton had given up his wealthy & sophisticated life as an IT guy from Russia & the US, for YOGA! He's a super intelligent, brainy person with so much wisdom & experience from all over the world. He was kind, helpful & I loved being his encyclopedia for when only his Russian brain was working. Better yet, Anton being a shy & introverted one was also extremely funny! You just had to pay attention or his dry sense of humor one would miss. But I didn't miss his jokes at all! Best of all, he really helped to break down my fast pace of exercise & helped me heal my tendon in my arm, my recently strained knee & kept my rebuilt shoulder happy & healthy! Yay! A new life of injury free exercise.

"Better than ever expected"

Great teachers, always leading you out of your bounderies, giving you confidence in yourself. Whole knowledge of yoga philosophy not only as asanas. It has been an amazing journey to my innerself, to perfectionate my own practice in the asanas with different styles (Pranayama, mantras, sanscrit, yin, hatha, tantra, vinyasa...), a lot of tips not to get injured and get a wider view about what yoga really is. Namasté dear Anton & Vanessa. You really are in my heart. Love

"Enseignants de très grande qualité "

J ai infiniment apprécié le professionnalisme des professeurs qui tenaient à nous transmettre le meilleur de leurs connaissances et compétences, et nous amener à explorer le meilleur de nous-mêmes, de nos capacités. Enseignement respectueux et humain : ce n est pas une usine à donner des diplômes. Excellente ambiance bienveillante et chaleureuse.

"Eine Yoga-Ausbildung, die mein Leben verändert hat"

Ich bin wahnsinnig begeistert von der gesamten Erfahrung. Alles war stimmig. Die Ausbildung hat mein Leben extrem zum Positiven verändert. Meine eigene Yogapraxis hat nicht nur an wertvollem Fachwissen, sondern auch an spiritueller Tiefe gewonnen. Ich habe in diesen wenigen Wochen mehr über mich selbst und meinen Körper gelernt als das ganze Jahr davor, in dem ich Yoga praktiziert habe. Die Unterkunft war perfekt für mich geeignet. Ich hatte einen Raum mit Ventilator und Badezimmer - alles, was ich brauchte. Der vegane Brunch war vielseitig und immer köstlich. Sowohl die anderen TeilnehmerInnen, als auch die KursleiterInnen sind wie eine Familie für mich geworden. Ich werde diese Wochen als wundervolle Erinnerung in meinem Herzen behalten und freue mich viele dieser lieb gewonnenen Menschen bald wiederzusehen. Ich kann diese Yogalehrer-Ausbildung wirklich jedem 100%ig ans Herz legen.

"Dream YTTC"

I've traveled around 5 months and decided to come to Anahata Yoga Shala for the 28 Days TTC. Well, it was the best month.

The teachers are amazing. Everyone has their own kind of teaching and their own character. They showed us how diverse Yoga is.

The Vegan Brunch was fabulous! Some non-vegans joked that they could become vegans if some1 would cook for them like this everyday.

The whole community is kind, loving, funny, non-judging and caring. We were 18 students and, quite frankly, it felt like having a new family.

I stayed in HutSun, make sure to stay there as well! Pool, beautiful rooms and bungalows, very kind host and good service.

No written exams, beautiful location with amazing restaurants, nice accommodation (in HutSun) and caring, loving ppl around you.
