"Short but sweet"
Learning to live with 9 total strangers and bond over shared thinking and a passion for Yoga. Getting the oportunity to be fully immersed in a Yogic practise for 3 weeks.
Having the time to take an inward journey and reflect on life and where to from here.
Being away from the distractions of everyday life, work, traffic, social engagements etc... that allowed you to find the space to expand.

"Transformational YTT in quiet, gorgeous Piha"
In short, I had a wonderful training experience filled with learning and laughter. Steve is a fantastic, hilarious, insanely knowledgeable teacher, who is full of surprises and support. He is committed to helping his trainees flourish and to bring our their individual abilities, with warmth and professionalism. Piha is a gorgeous pocket of natural beauty, and a luxury was being able to take a quiet stroll to the beach which was only 5 minutes walk from the house. The accommodation was more than comfortable, and we enjoyed the flexibility of cooking for ourselves - having fun with creating healthy wholesome food. I found the dynamic and energy of the whole experience incredibly nourishing. We were taught what we needed to know, and to teach safely - no more and no less - which is the best that you can expect from a 200 hour training.

"Enlightenment on all levels"
The area was breathtaking, two minute walk to the beach and a short drive into town. The structure of lessons was perfect with space in between for self-study or to hang around. The yoga experience overall was enchanting and one that will be with me for a lifetime. Steve is someone who will shake a soul up, light up lives, and teach with compassion, solitude, and absolute care - forever grateful.

The course was very well put together, with excellent trainers who had fantastic knowledge, all with different areas of expertise and they all created a really good balance and offered something totally unique to the experience and learning. The food at Kura Kura was fantastic, very healthy and I felt so looked after and cared for! Over all I had a fantastic time and have left the course with enthusiasm to teach and share my knowledge and learning with others!

"Wonderful 200hr Yoga Teacher Training!"
I really enjoyed the openness in morning Asana practice. The teachers took turns teaching us in different styles and we were free to ask questions during class which allowed lots of clarity. I also enjoyed the workshops where we practiced proper form with inversions and arm balances.
