Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Ashtanga Yoga)
Sequoia’s yogic journey began with the very disciplined practice of the Iyengar tradition. After years of practicing the Iyengar lineage, she cultivated her own personal practice and discipline, which organically transformed her asana practice into a mixture of the Ashtanga and Hatha schools. Now, she teaches the traditional practice of Hatha yoga incorporating space for inner awareness and witnessing, which allows one to deepen inner connection beyond the physical body.
Shir has studied many different forms of yoga ranging from Vijnana to Sivananda to most recently studying under his guru, Sri Dharma Mittra. Beyond yoga, Shir has studied other healing modalities like Ayurveda and Thai yoga massage. He has been teaching for over six years with over 500 hours of training certifications. Shir describes his first yoga class as an experience and sensation of great relief, like coming back home. He encourages his students to do the same in their practice, exploring and deepening their own inner bases.

Alexia’s Yoga path started 10 years ago where, after having taken only a single class in an Ashram in India, she signed up for a month long Yoga immersion in Rishikesh. Being drawn to philosophy, meditation kriyas, and neti pots, she realized that there is more to discover than the conditioned programming we often grow up believing in. After finishing her studies in International Marketing in Rome, London, Nice and Delhi, and completing another Teacher Training, love made her move back to her home country Austria where she actively started teaching in Yoga studios.

I booked this training because of it's description. It seemed to me getting more out of it as of other teacher trainings. And it was a great decision! I learned so much more than just asanas. I learned for life! Sequoia and her team are great teachers and also great supporter all the time. The food was good and the staff of the hotel did everything to make our stay perfect. The place near Ubud is a perfect place to do a Yoga Teacher Training! All in all I would do it again. I highly recommend to learn with Sequoia and her team!
There is nothing to say about the training itself. Just the housekeeping cleaned up the room in different times a day and often during breaks of the training when I liked to study.

Sequoia is an amazing woman and teacher. Her two assistant teachers were also terrific! I couldn't have had a better education. The live music was a big bonus but everything was very well planned and we learned so much more than I had thought possible! I'm truly grateful and feel very confident as I am going out there being a teacher!
The food was ok but it was getting very old eating the same thing over and over again.

After reviewing scores of RYT programs offered in some of the coolest locations on the planet, Anne and I decided on the Feeling Soul Good program in Bali in April. People attend these programs for so many different reasons - some because they know they want to teach yoga, others to deepen their own yoga practice and still others are looking to find a unique life experience or perhaps even looking to find themselves. We had just started our own business integrating performance and wellness for others and wanted to incorporate our passion for yoga into our services. As martial arts instructors and considering Anne’s background in personal training and mine in SCUBA instruction, we were counting on a school that would provide excellent learning that we could bring back to others, personally and professionally. As small business owners, we were counting on value for the cost and time commitment. As yoga practitioners, we were counting on greatly increasing our knowledge and competence in all aspects of yoga. We are so pleased to say that Feeling Soul Good delivered on these expectations - and more. The month-long program with Feeling Soul Good provided an amazingly comprehensive experience for both of us that was well beyond what we had hoped! Sequoia Henning and team covered the necessary fundamentals very well, of course, and managed to do so including a focus on the importance of “sound” in a yoga practice. In this program, we were able to explore not just yoga but ourselves in ways we never imagined. We learned far beyond what we had hoped - and the way they taught has inspired how we aspire to teach going forward. We recommend Feeling Soul Good to any yoga practitioner regardless of their intent to teach or simply deepen their practice. As teacher preparation, we found the Feeling Soul Good RYT program as effective as what we experienced in certification programs of personal training, SCUBA and martial arts teacher training.

I am Feeling Soul Good! Looking back at the month I spent here I had no clue what I was in for. I was just hoping to be certified to teach yoga. Sequoia is a Goddess, she and the team was extremely loving, supportive and knowledgeable. I have learnt so much not only about Yoga but also about myself then I have ever learnt in my entire life. I would definitely recommend this course too everyone as a once in a lifetime opportunity for change. I can not wait for the next one.

Feeling Soul Good was an amazing experience! Way over my expectations. I had no idea I was going to learn so much about no only yoga and the fundamentals but also about myself. I am truly grateful for sequoia and her team, Pablo and Shir, they all were very committed, knowledgeable and supportive. Thank you for the bottom of my heart.

Student of Feeling Soul Good teacher training, Bali, Indonesia 2016. As I approach the one year anniversary of when I completed my yoga teacher training with Feeling Soul Good, I am thinking a lot about all of the ways it has positively impacted my life both daily and also on a very deep level. Feeling Soul Good provided me with a well-rounded understanding of yogic principles, and how we can apply these in our daily lives. Prior to completing this training, I was looking for a “quick fix” to happiness. I thought to myself if I could just do “x, y, and z,” then I can be happy and coast through the rest of my life in blissful unawareness. But that’s not how life works. “Sthira-sukham asanam,” roughly translated as finding the balance of “effortless effort in our postures,” is one of the yoga sutras by Patanjali that our teacher, Stephan, often quoted in training. Life is a balance: a balance of discipline and letting go, a balance of day and night, of darkness and light, of feminine and masculine. Yoga means “union,” and teaches us to bring balance into all areas of our lives, through the practices of the asanas (yoga postures) but also through the other yogic principles. Yoga has transformed my relationship with myself, with my friends and family, and with nature. I have learned to integrate myself more in my physical environment, to connect with nature in order to connect to my true self. My relationship with food has transformed, and I am now able to eat more with mindfulness and appreciation of food, rather than being disconnected from the substance that provides me with life and energy. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: yoga has transformed my life for the better in every way. Even if you are not planning on teaching yoga yourself, Feeling Soul Good will provide you with the tools you need to live a happier, more fulfilling life. Sequoia spent most of her adult life studying yoga in India, and truly lives what she teaches. She is passionate and very knowledgeable, and passes her teachings on in ways that are easy to digest. The teachers that Sequoia had co-teaching with us at our training in Bali were equally knowledgeable and passionate, and the three teachers’ styles and backgrounds complemented and balanced each other out very well. I would absolutely train with Feeling Soul Good again, and I would highly recommend this teacher training for anyone who is looking to connect deeper with him - or herself and with the world around us.
