"Lovely Uvita"

I was hoping for a full immersion course with a small class size and that's what I got.

I liked the fact, that everything was starting from the basis, so I feel like I will have a strong basis to start. The teacher was really generous and that was appreciated.

"Amazing Experience!"

Lura has created a teacher training program to set you up to be an extremely successful teacher. Each day we learn a different part of the teaching process from the asanas to breathing and the philosophical teachings.

We started from the beginning by reviewing all of the poses and alignment. I learned immediately how much better my own practice will become by taking a step back from my years of practicing yoga and relearning the basics. During the free time we were given, Lura encouraged us to play on our mats and work with each other on the things we've learned to date. I left the training feel confident in my practice and in teaching beginner yogis to intermediate/advanced yogis. I'd recommend this program to anyone!

"Love! Experience of a lifetime!"

The people! Lura was so accommodating and my fellow yogi students are now good friends. On top of that, Uvita is a beautiful location with a great community. I felt we learned so much over the course of the month from history, anatomy and of course the yoga practice of postures and breath but also how to practice yoga in your daily life by living with loving kindness. I grew as a person, for the better , over this program with Lura. Very grateful.

"200 hour retreat...not as advertised"

The cabinas we stayed in were great Shaun & Jen are great host. The wildlife and short walk to the beach were amazing. Kirk, our anatomy instructor was a ray of sunshine in our day! Lura was able to provide me with a comfortable pillow!
