    "Each yoga class was a gift, a beautiful energy experience that helped me to integrate and release old habits and patterns that were holding me back. These yoga classes have completely revolutionized my ideas of what yoga is and the profound effect it can have on people. After finishing this course, I feel the most complete and satisfied that I have felt in years. Before this course, I was turning into a bit of a ‘course addict’, always seeking a teacher outside of myself to help me to better understand myself, understand the way of the world, and how to help others. This training showed me the way back to the teacher within myself and the ever-present, always supportive, and unconditionally loving teacher within Nature. I am leaving the course with the wisdom of simplicity and a deep understanding of myself on every level. Jai has a wealth of knowledge and genuine experience in Holistic Medicine and Yoga Therapy, which he makes available through simple and powerful techniques. Jai is someone who really lives what he is teaching and it is such an inspiration to see what this living philosophy really looks like when put into practice over the course of one’s lifetime. He keeps the course light and playful while also creating a sacred and safe place for deeply transformational processes."

    "‘Don’t be confused between advanced yoga and deep yoga’ – Jai said during the first lecture. Then he spent the next month giving us that experience over and over. The yoga allowed me to explore depths which other yoga practices did not reveal. I felt completely alive and in my body for the first time. Every aspect of this course exceeded my expectations. I’ve practiced yoga for 10 years and taught for 7 years, but no program or training has given me such simple, but profound tools to connect with myself. Jai has created a holistic educational journey so deep, to the point that you often don’t realize how much you’re learning. I feel like I have the tools to keep myself on track and that I gained a new trust for my future. Jai has a remarkable gift and ability to create and hold space. The ebbs and flows of this course felt intentional and meaningful down to each moment. The attention he gave to each individual to make sure we all had a chance to experience our own energetic depths was admirable. He showed up fully present each day and held space for us to feel what it means to be conscious and subtle."

    "I have been turned inside out, wrung out and transformed to the physical, emotional and spiritual woman I was meant to be. Each Elemental Yoga Class awakened my senses and energetic body to give me a deep appreciation of the elements. I had no idea when I signed up for the course how life changing it would be. I am excited to share my new appreciation for nature, the elements, the energetic and subtle body, to those I meet and hopefully illuminate their lives to their highest potential."

    "To be able to totally surrender to a yoga experience of pure energy movement through a truly multidimensional medicinal philosophy, gave me with absolute faith and confidence in nature’s wisdom. This is the teaching within Elemental Yoga. To feel the physical body move effortlessly from an energetic source rising from a deeper connection than only my breathe and my discipline is a life-changing practice. It allowed the full force of nature to heal the deepest issues of mind and body. This was the second time I’ve done this training and after 20 years of yoga experiences I realize that this time I have not only been able to see this training through new and wiser eyes, but also enforce my absolute faith and confidence in nature’s ability to remain present and giving to those wishing to receive."

    "I feel confident in the potency of this yoga therapy to transform my physical and emotional obstacles. I also feel confident that I will be able to take what I’ve learned and help many different people with the kinds of health imbalances that are becoming common in our world. Jai’s yoga classes are powerful experiences which build emotionally intelligent yoga sequences which direct healing energy to where the healing is needed. By really connecting to the cycles of our body and environment, it has awakened my innate healing wisdom within me. Going through each element, different imbalances came to the surface and I was able to deal with this through the yoga practices, instead of needing help from others. I was able to heal from the inside out, which is wonderful gift and a powerful form of natural therapy. "

    "Elemental Yoga gave me the most incredible energy experiences I’ve ever had. All of the classes were built on a powerful foundation, which made it possible for me to connect to myself way beyond my physical body. I discovered, observed and experienced myself in ways I never have before. Trusting that my body will show me what I need and that Nature will give me the tools to balance my Self is an incredible feeling. It was deep, scary, funny, lovely, thrilling and so much more. It felt like I went through the seasons in my own body and lived through every type of weather and climate as an energy experience. Incredible! Jai created a safe space, which made it possible for me to go beyond my limits. I always felt in good hands and if needed there was always help to find myself back in the moment and to integrate my personal experience. It was a magical experience to devote myself to the rituals he shared and I’m deeply grateful for all the offerings he shared on this path."

    "The Elemental Yoga Therapy Teacher Training confirmed the idea I’ve had for many years; that this is ‘real yoga’. I’ve always felt deeply connected to nature and Jai’s approach resonates solidly with me. This training swept away the doubts that keep rising in me, doubts about how I belong in a simple connection with nature. This approach gives me a way to enrich my conversation with mother Earth. "

    "Jai is providing a life-changing experience, with a multi-dimensional, broadly subjected, vast, fulfilling, challenging and fun curriculum. The yoga classes he gives are absolutely unique. The connection to the elements and nature, as obvious as it seems after his course, will change the way I live. "

    "This training is set within the unique structure to first allow the experiences teach me directly, so that once we got to the more theoretical part of the course, my body already knew what we were exploring. This made the Elemental Yoga learning experience so deep and changing at the same time. Every day we were perfectly attuned to the previous one, taking the experience deeper, leaving space to let it integrate and become a part of myself. There was a clear and strong structure to this course, yet still I had so much space, for myself and to connect with the group as well. I found exactly what I’ve been looking for so widely in today’s modern yoga approach – finally a philosophy that creates a deep connection to myself through the energetic nature of Elemental Yoga. I discovered the beauty and the power of simplicity. The training showed me the great power that lies behind communicating and working in tune with nature. Jai is like a never-ending spring of wisdom, always something new to learn. I could feel nature speaking through him and this yoga training is a very healing and joyful experience! I feel like I’m not the same as I was before this course, it truly transformed me."

    "Diabetes was a large portion of what brought me to seeking a new understanding and what I have learned in this course is unquestionable. Elemental Yoga has enabled me to understand more about this condition than any doctor, health professional, nutritionist has ever done. Its holistic approach in its delivery incorporates everything and combines it all to a powerful tool that has had undeniable effects. Diabetes alone has had a profound level of insulin reduction while maintaining better readings than I have had before. I found it comical as for so long I have been seeking all these answers & the foundations of this course allowed me to see they were in front of me the whole time. This course is a profound collection of knowledge & experiences all combined down into a powerful, yet simple approach that anyone can experience. It just works and better yet, everyone can access it. This concept of what Jai has managed to combine is all his years of experience takes everything to the next level. Yoga is no longer just yoga – it is so much more, a deeper awakening, a connection, the movement of energies, the alignment with nature, the healing tool is simply limitless in its potential following this approach. My diabetes has been positively impacted to the extent that through knowing now what I have learned these past few weeks I now realize that what I once believed to be something so permanent, no longer holds that over me. My insulin reduction was substantial, my reliance shifted, all the underlying issues that exist with a condition like this have all started positively shifting. It excites me to even think of the possibilities this knowledge can have on a bigger scale. It truly has been an eye-opening experience and I am extremely grateful that this course was written so thoroughly. I am ever grateful to Jai and his life’s teachings, for his sharing of all his knowledge and experiences in an incredible course, designed perfectly to unlock potential, deliver knowledge and share experiences, to ultimately gift you a toolbox and skillset overflowing with this limitless potential to take home to share. It is simple, it is undeniable and I am excited to keep growing. "

    "By the depth of this training you can sense it is carefully woven together, aligned with the energy of the group. It’s impossible to describe the importance of the wisdom wrapped up in the experiences of this course. The beauty of this approach to yoga therapy is that rather than engaging with only the intellect, Elemental Yoga appeals to the wisdom of the body itself. It’s talking directly from the energies from Nature, deeply connecting you to the bigger picture of life. For me it is transformative, simple and yet immensely deep at the same time. Elemental Yoga helps me to dive into the very essence of myself, unravelling old emotional patterns I have had all my life. It is like I am unravelling and putting myself back together in a way that aligns more with who I want to be. This yoga has changed my life into a life more worthy of celebrating. I am more connected to my emotions, and to the way I interact with others. It works on all aspects of myself, and the wisdom of it never seems to end. A practice I will keep for the rest of my life.

    "Jai has an incredible knowledge and profound experiences that clearly shows that not only has he studied extensively the subject matter taught on this course, but he lives it without compromise. He is an excellent teacher in his field, which is reflected in Elemental Yoga Therapy. His impressive creation gathered over the years of his own life path. He is a master teacher in his discipline. Coming here and going through this journey has connected me deeply with the elements within me and my connection to nature. From the pure diet, perfect jungle surroundings, seamless program and wonderful group of students I cherish the surprising depths we went through exploring each element. It has been a beautiful, meaningful, healing experience that has given me life tools for myself and my clients."

    "Jai has many great qualities as a teacher. He’s very passionate about yoga, nature and the 5 elements. The lectures were always fascinating, as each subject made me want to go deeper and broader into myself. Jai’s sense of humor was a wonderful way to keep the course light-hearted when it was needed and he is always very approachable and open, and available at all times to a level which I’ve never seen before with other teachers. His background in yoga, Shamanism, meditation, Zen Shiatsu, rituals, holistic healing and nature is immense and I’m very grateful that he shared it with us. I love the teachings of the 5 elements and I am really looking forward to go deeper into my own practice knowing what I know now. "

I found the experience a beautiful personal journey which helped me develop a deep connection to myself through the understanding of the dialogue we are having with nature.

    "This course turned my world upside down. Before this course I was just an ordinary girl who didn’t know much about spirituality, energy or yoga and I definitely hadn’t experienced anything like this. During the course, I began a personal transformation. My picture and belief of who I was as a person changed, as well as my one-dimensional view of the world. I literally began to experience that I’m not just a body with a mind. I also had an energy body and a psychic body. I began to feel the energy moving within me. During meditation, I discovered a whole new world, a new dimension. I now feel like I’m a whole lot closer to finding the true me. Nature is a powerful thing. Every yoga class was a little piece of magic for me. It always took me by surprise. I felt clearly how my energy body responded to the yoga. I began to feel how the energy ran in my meridians and felt how a great, wild, beautiful energy started to get alive inside of me. The yoga and meditation helped me to get in contact with my psychic body. I got a glimpse of what I’m about to become and saw a beautiful and slightly overwhelming world, beyond this one. I truly admire Jai’s work in Elemental Yoga Therapy. It comes across so easily because he is a real source of true yoga knowledge and direct experiences. He is very caring, supportive, positive and his great sense of humor helped me a lot when things were difficult. Elemental Yoga is very simple and yet very effective. Its simplicity helped to create a space where you can connect with your true self and develop a healing spirituality. "

It is a profound, powerful and nourishing creation. The gift of space, time, yoga and ritual is a great combination to support us human beings to just be and to connect. This was my first experience of a yoga retreat with Jai. The wealth of experience, knowledge and deep understanding of this work is palpable in both yoga and ritual spaces.

I loved that the retreat was truly experimental and intuitive as that made the flow through sensations and senses extremely strong and natural. Not only do I strongly recommend this retreat, I am actually also waiting to participate in the next one! Jai. C. Salt is a continuous source of inspiration. His creativity and ability to guide people safely through their personal journey, diving into emotions and senses, are his unique talents. He has a wonderful personality and sense of humor which brings fun and joy throughout the deep and powerful practice. Thank you Jai."

Every ritual was set up with great care and compassion. We could really dive deep into ourselves. It was a great experience to work with the elements. I felt really supported by the teacher and the group connection was a wonderful surprise. The elements seemed to bring us together. Jai is clearly a great teacher and I felt completely safe with all the new experiences he shared. He never tries to push you into a direction, he just gives simple advice and guidance when you ask for it. You can really feel that he cares about people. "

    "The Tantric Yoga Ritual retreat is about connecting to nature, and learning to connect to people through new boundaries. It is taught with love, compassion, and freedom to do things your own way. Going inwards to and really feeling the energies of the five elements flowing throughout the whole body is a rare and unique experience. Making nature rituals was new for me, but I loved the experience of it. From the first day I felt the uplifting energy from the retreat. Jai. C. Salt is a very sensitive teacher, who really knows what he is doing. His classes are full of great energy, and celebrate and evoke the essence of the elements. He is a master in saying the right things at the right time. He needs to write a book about it!"

    "The Tantric Yoga Ritual retreat is the perfect way to connect. If you are a yoga practitioner, even a beginner, or curious about Tantra and rituals, this retreat gives you a unique experience. Through yoga, the five elements and being surrounded by nature, it was easy to open up into a journey of self-exploration, purification and awakening. This experience is heightened by a carefully sewn program and food to support all the different practices. In only ten days, I have realized things about myself that have been on my mind for several years. The simplicity of living, the beauty of everything around us, the heightening of the senses, everything just becomes clear. This retreat has left me a changed person! If you get the chance to attend to this retreat, I highly recommend it! Jai. C. Salt is an naturally gifted teacher. His broad spectrum of wisdom in all kinds of subjects is something you rarely see, but that’s not what makes him a good teacher. What makes him a good teacher is his ability to communicate. He can make the most subtle and difficult subject easy to understand. He can shed light to questions about yourself, you’ve had for many years. He brings about understanding and compassion. That’s what makes him a good teacher. What makes him a great teacher is his ability to connect to the people coming to his courses. His personality and his genuine wish to help and transform peoples’ lives, is something you need to experience to understand fully. His work and teachings are his life. That’s what makes him a great teacher. What makes him an amazing teacher, is his never ending compassion and humility, but what really makes Jai an elite teacher is that he makes you do everything yourself! He points at the direction, gives you some tools to work with and is ever supporting and motivational when you follow your journey. I’ve known Jai for only four years, and the paths he has opened for me are beyond description. He truly is a life changer. "

    "One of the most valuable things I learnt through The Elemental Yoga Therapy Training was actually how to observe and be aware of myself and to accept that every day I am a bit different."

    "I learned to observe myself without judgement (sometimes!) - or if anything to simply be aware of it, to develop what I feel, not what I think I should feel. I would do this course over and over again because I know that every time I would learn so much more about the ever changing nature of myself."

As challenging as it is to put the feelings and lessons absorbed into words, with such an intense program, I will say that it has changed my views, values, and perception of life in a number of different ways.

    "Elemental Yoga's theory seems so simple in the end, yet for us living in this world it's not easy to realize it. The Yoga Therapy course taught me how to feel more connected with nature, and so now the things I value are changing. I can really see how we, as human beings, have been making things so complicated and the training process itself taught me how to go back to what we were all doing originally. What I learnt from the training was priceless, it was more than yoga, or perhaps it is just the very essence of yoga, and I really feel how now I am on the right path."

    "The EYT experience was a deep process of learning, understanding, and feeling the connection to myself, nature, and everything that surrounds us again. My perception of life has changed and I now feel more self-determined and able to set the right impulses on the right energy levels to balance my own nature, my whole life. The Elemental Yoga concept is an amazing model to make sustainable, deep changes within yourself and also help others to do the same. I now feel my own home, my center and my path and trust the flow of life more than I ever did. For me as a yoga teacher it gives me more trust and I connect to my students on a deeper level, which makes real transformation possible."

    "The Elemental Yoga Therapy training was in countless ways one of the best gifts I have ever been granted as a teacher and student of yoga but also as a person looking to grow. Not only did what I learn broaden my understanding of yoga, holistic health, but it also made me certain in my ability to help others - students, friends, even clients who start off as strangers. There is not often a day that goes by that I do not think of these teachings and the resulting personal realizations which came through the courses’ power in constantly connecting me with the simplest truths and experiences."

    "The Elemental Yoga Therapy training is absolutely one of a kind: bravely, wisely and aesthetically revealing the essence of ancient traditions including yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda, TCM, Shiatsu, and Shamanism into a simple, pure, communicable reflection of nature herself.The wisdom can be woven with ease into daily living, yoga development, as well as any healing modality, and ultimately into the way in which we understand and experience our selves.This course is creatively structured as a program so that each student can experience the dynamic dance of the elements, allowing the elements to reveal their inherent polarities within our physical and subtle bodies. After 18 days together, I had a completely new perspective of the elements, as well as a renewed love affair with nature!Finally, I feel that I've been guided into a course of study that brings the wisdom of the sages into an evolved, conscious and modern day approach towards empowering the individual to tap into their own energetic potential. I look forward to continued studies with the Elemental Yoga Therapy program! "

    "The Elemental Yoga Therapy training helped me reconnect with myself through absorbing and reconnecting to the energies of nature's elements. I learned new aspects of yoga that feel more truthful and makes me realize how easy it is to be asleep in my former practices.I learned that it is through subtlety and simplicity that you find the yoga to be most effective, both physically and energetically. I am ready to go out with the experience and the comprehensive tool box that comes from this very thorough training in Elemental Yoga Therapy.I am only at the beginning, but a seed has been planted and I am committed to keep nourishing it and watch it grow. Thank you for a wonderful yoga experience."

    "I have completed three trainings with this form of elemental yoga, and each time the course showed me how to connect even more deeply to the elements inside me. Teaching others how connecting to nature and the elements can heal and transform deeply rooted issues / imbalances is simple when you know how to use this system.As a teacher, I work in the Norwegian Prison system, and the key practices of elemental yoga are fundamental to assisting my students there.Anyone who is interested in yoga and transformative work should put this training on their list. It teaches absolutely sincere developmental skills. Elemental Yoga Therapy has taken yoga to another level for me. "

    "This course came to me at the right time in my life, As someone who already had a connection to ritual life, I was truly moved as I learned to relate with Mother Nature and her Elements on a much deeper level.I was expertly guided and supported all the way through my discoveries by these two extraordinary teachers . It is difficult to be more specific, because words don't really describe the feelings that come with moving the Elements into harmony with yourself. I am deeply touched by this course."

    "I came to the Elemental Yoga Therapy Course for two reasons. First, I wanted to learn techniques to balance my own constitution and imbalances. Secondly, I wanted to start practicing Yoga Therapy in my community.My 21 day journey of yogic self-inquiry was truly transformative. I am able to see and feel myself as an alchemy of Nature' s Elements. I have this deep sense of connection to the Earth and belonging to her.I did find some answers to my personal questions, but more importantly I learned how and when to ask the right questions. The course left me completely confident and excited to help the people in my community with this wonderful form of Yoga Therapy"

    "With the medicine I have learnt on this course I feel I am able to continue strengthening myself, physically and emotionally. I now have an entirely new perspective on yoga. This is Yoga like no other Yoga, and I love the Therapy that it creates.The way I experienced the forces of Nature threading me together is beautiful. To find a Teacher in Nature means I carry from this course a medicine that I can share with anyone at any level of Yoga, anywhere along their path of life challenges."

    "Having experienced my transformative Nature by balancing the Elements inside me, I learned how to feel myself in a whole new way. I became aware of my cyclic nature and my ability to attune myself to the seasons in order to live in harmony.Experiencing and learning about the natural medicinal power of Yoga makes me confident in helping other people to balance their energies holistically. During the three weeks of training I received a lot of useful tools in order to practice and teach powerful Yoga.But most importantly, I feel my own connection to my Earth, my Water, my Fire, my Air, and my Spirit. Feeling this connection allows me to receive Nature's wisdom as my lifelong teacher."
