Everything was great and way better than I could ever have imagined. The food, the area, the teachers and their way of teaching. Really impressive and I’d do it all over again.

Yoga teacher training gave me purpose. It made me realize that I wouldn't change a thing from my past, because every thing that happened, every experience I had, was leading me towards teacher training. Our training gave me a whole new way of living; it made me able to believe in love, in people, and in a bigger entity. It also made me feel more confident and gave me the power to help others in a way I never believed I could before. Now, I don't suffer from constant anxiety and depression and whenever I feel it coming on, I understand myself, so I can control it a lot better. I would recommend teacher training to every person on earth!
