"200 Hour YTTC January 2020"
Anahata provided an amazing experience all around. Vanessa is unbelievably talented and a fantastic teacher. I am so thrilled with my experience at Anahata. The new shala is gorgeous and the combination of Anton and Vanessa both teaching is super well balanced. I learned more than I thought possible and my practice improved tenfold. The training was very personalized and I feel well equipped and confident to teach, as we were provided ample teaching time with other students as well as the public. I would absolutely recommend this program for anyone looking to improve their practice and build confidence and skills to teach yoga.

The view from the Shala was very good, right at the beach with a view of the ocean.
We also had a lot of fun at the training and enjoyed the yoga with good music and playfulness.
I think the training is good for people who are just starting on their yoga journey or who just want to deepen their practice for themselves.

"A month in paradise "
I loved starting the mornings chanting with Cheryl. She has a beautiful voice and a gentle presence, and it was a wonderful way to start the day.
We were lucky to have a small group of only 6 students so it was a very personal and transformative experience. I feel like we really got to know each other and valued one another’s unique contributions to the group.
The food that was provided by Art Cafe was so fresh and healthy, and it was really a feast every day. I liked the freedom with the schedule because after a few weeks I started to skip the lunches and take some “me time” at the beach or the pool instead.
I highly recommend communicating your intentions for the program with Vanessa, if you have an idea of what you would like to gain from the class. I told Vanessa early on that I was interested in pregnancy yoga and she made a point to ensure that I had all the resources I would need to gain that knowledge. She regularly checked in with me to ask if I needed any further instruction or resources. She gave me books and her personal notes from workshops she had attended on the topic, and mentioned alternative poses for pregnant women during our classes. If you know what you want and communicate it, she will make sure you get it!

"A transformational month"
Vanessa and Anton really really care about their students. They are both so passionate about what they do, it’s incredible. Being taught philosophy by Alex was also an amazing experience. I felt privileged to have teachers from such diverse experience backgrounds, all teaching what they knew the best. The daily feast we were provided was always delicious and nutritious and we usually had leftovers for dinner too. The Dropbox that was shared with us has so many useful files and books on it, which is so appreciated. Overall, I learnt so much from this experience and I’m ready to take on the world as a yoga teacher!!
