Kathrin grew up in the beautiful Austrian countryside, which laid the foundation for her strong connection to mother nature. Having experimented with different nutritional systems for more than 10 years, she came in touch with Ayurveda during her first trip to India in 2007. This very individualized approach of Ayurveda deeply resonated with Kathrin and she decided to return to India to study the art of Ayurveda right where it’s coming from. For the past 7 years, she has deepened her knowledge in Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, and energy work.

Olivier discovered yoga while living in London in 2003. Suffering from back pain and running injuries, yoga became an essential tool in his recovery and later a passion in its own right. Always a student at heart, he recently completed the advanced yoga anatomy course with Tom Myers, building on his understanding of the body and yoga practice even further. Over the years, Olivier has found that the key to a successful practice is honoring the physical body’s limitations and moving fearlessly into the possibilities of greater strength and flexibility.

E-RYT 500 & YACEP. Passionate about sports and movement and always searching for new things, Angelique discovered Yoga in 2005. There was no love at first sight, though in 2010 she was ready to learn more about yoga and did her first training in India. This tasted like more, so Angelique kept herself inspired by following all sorts of yoga styles and several trainings. Angelique says: “I am a Dutch yogini, a former nomad, an ex-traveler, and now a proud yogi-mum of two boys on an everlasting journey called life!" Through the yoga practices, she learns about herself and become more conscious.
Emily began her yoga journey in 2008 as a way to improve her mental health and the stresses of university life. Over the 7 years of teaching, she has always encouraged people to listen to their bodies, believing in the power of truly feeling a yoga practice rather than just “doing” one. Her path has taken her down many roads, from teaching children with Special Educational Needs, working in drug and alcohol recovery centers, to teaching yoga in all its spiritual wisdom at conscious gatherings.

I stayed two weeks for à Yin yoga TTC and I'm very glad that I did it in earth Yoga Village, small community with à big heart. I can't believe all the knowledge I got in two weeks on traditional chinése médecine and yin yoga. And more, it's à holistic place, where you learn about yoga but olso how to live in harmony with your self and with the community. It's such a healing place.
I Will keep Anushree as one of the person Who gave me the most precious learning. The traditional chinése médecine class and the intuitive kinesiologue where above what I was waiting !

"Einer der der schönsten & lehrreichsten Monate meines Lebens"
Earth Yoga Village ist der perfekte Ort für Menschen mit einer Liebe für Yoga und Community. Am Ende des Strandes, ein bisschen versteckt, bietet das Yogadorf Raum für Konversationen, Yoga und Entspannung und lustige Abendaktivitäten.
Ich habe mich von Anfang an sehr sicher gefühlt und wollte gar nicht mehr weg. Die Yogaausbildung war eine wunderschöne und besondere Erfahrung. Unsere Gruppe wurde sehr nett und respektvoll behandelt und wir hatten großartige Lehrer. Am Anfang und Ende der Ausbildung gab es sehr feierliche und emotionale Zeremonien, die mir immer in Erinnerung bleiben werden.
Ich kann diesen Ort und diese Ausbildung loben und weiterempfehlen!

Great hatha yoga class really enjoyed and would Highly recommended taking a session.
Very beautiful and peaceful place, two great teachers, Amanda and Julia.
Unfortunately the owner, yogi, is not so nice to his staff and beating dogs.
My time with the group and teachers was however very special!
So a 10 for the teachers and place, a 5 for the owner.. so, a 7,5 average score..
Earth Yoga Village's Response:
We are very glad and happy to know that you had great time at Earth Yoga Village. We all try our best to keep on improving overall experience for our visiting guests and to make them part of the community.
However, we would, also, like to say that your analysis about dog and staff may not be right, as we are all super happy and satisfied working here, like a family, and the dog is our visiting dog for many years, we all love it, but time to time, we all need to be strict with it, to put it into right behavior pattern.
We are very conscious of our actions, nevertheless we thank you for your kind review.
Earth Yoga Village gets a top score of 10 for everything! The staff are amazing, the variety of yoga, meditation and just all sorts of experiences unique to Earth yoga. The food is top notch, the accommodation is sufficient, quiet with lovely wildlife.Thank you for a wonderful stay! Highly recommended!
