  • Ira Schneider

    Ira a commencé à pratiquer le yoga de façon consciente en 2007. De façon consciente car, après l'obtention de son diplôme de 200 heures, il a réalisé que le yoga va au delà de la pratique physique. Or il avait déjà pratiqué ses autres aspects du yoga (pranayama, méditation, pensée positive) dès son enfance. Ce sentiment, il le ressentait largement alors qu'il travaillait comme entrepreneur, professeur ou consultant, et dans sa vie privée.

Dans un rayon de 10 minutes à vélo, vous découvrirez des centres commerciaux, des musées d’art et de vie marine, des bibliothèques, des plages, des centres de sports nautiques, des supermarchés et beaucoup de restaurants et de bars.

Les petit déjeuner, déjeuner et dîner quotidiens sont compris dans le forfait.

    PROS J'ai aimé: I liked the atmosphere that Ira and Valarie provide. It really feels like home there once you're settled in. I also liked all that they had to share about Yoga and Health. There are so many things to learn and love here.

    More than I expected!

    CONS Je n'ai pas aimé: The only thing that could be improved upon is the temperature of the house at night while we're trying to sleep. It's still pretty warm in the rooms at night, even with the air conditioner running and a ceiling fan on all day too. Otherwise honestly no complaints!

    PROS J'ai aimé: Ira and Valerie are a great team and have so much to share with students and retreat guests alike. I was able to learn so much more to further my yoga practice, and the breathing techniques we were taught also helped immensely. The shamanic breath work was a Life changing experience that I will be forever thankful for. The people I met there made the whole retreat experience all that sweeter. Thank you Zen Den for changing my Life!

    Réponse de l'organisateur: Thank you Di, we absolutely loved having you! Our students were mentioning they missed you this past week. Ira and I are so glad that you had so much inner reward, and we hope you will continue to cultivate your practice at home. Namaste, Val & Ira

    Different than expected but a great learning experience.

    CONS Je n'ai pas aimé: I was on my "retreat" during the final three days of a teacher training course. The group were all incredibly welcoming and lovely, and it seemed as though they had had a wonderful journey over the month they were there. However, I often felt uncomfortable as they were reflecting upon and finishing up their course while I was there - as such, they were having inspiring personal breakthroughs and admirable growth, which is great, but I inevitably felt a little like I was imposing on the group. In addition, my room was used as a thoroughfare for the group to access the yoga studio, and it was an unexpected inconvenience to have to explain that I wanted some privacy in my own room. Furthermore, because the group was finishing up their training course, every physical yoga class was run by the students. It was very interesting to see them learn and I actually really enjoyed experiencing their classes. However, the classes were of a low quality and very repetitive because they were all learning the basics of teaching and the studio runs the same classes every day. The classes also did not always start on time - sometimes they were early and sometimes they were late. This made it very difficult to effectively plan for the day and I was nervous that I might miss a class due to this. In addition, the location was unexpected being right next to a highway. This may have been poor research on my behalf, but I was anticipating much easier access to the beach and more of a retreat from civilisation. To access the acupuncture appointment (which was great!), for example, I had to bike ride along a highway for 45 minutes. The bikes were also broken (whether it be a broken tyre, chain or pedal), there were no bike locks or helmets. The latter of this was particularly concerning given the lack of bike lanes and busy roads in the area. As I explained to the hosts before I left, it is difficult to not have expectations about things like this retreat as this is a natural human tendency; however, it is when they are not met that expectations become the most difficult. My expectations were not met by this retreat; however, I had a very different and incredibly rewarding learning experience in a number of ways that I did not anticipate. I wanted to write this review mainly to help others have a full understanding of the retreat so that they can make an educated choice.

    PROS J'ai aimé: The yoga philosophy class and the breathwork class were both fantastic and the highlight of the retreat. I also loved the early morning beach meditation, the massage and energy work. The group of students living in the house while I was there were all lovely, incredibly welcoming, and promoted very positive energy. The food on offer in the area - while a bike, long walk or Uber ride away - was delicious. The house we stayed in had sufficient facilities and the hosts were very welcoming and helpful - I asked several questions and they were all followed up. The pool in the backyard was great for the Florida heat!

    ccececeeede

    CONS Je n'ai pas aimé: Ce n'est pas une retraite, il s'agit d'une maison pour les étudiants qui passent leur brevet de prof de yoga. Ils partagent la maison, les taches ménagères et les devoirs. Cela a l'air bien pour eux. La "retraite" est juste une façon de remplir les chambres. Il n'y a aucun encadrement, on fait nos propres jus - les mêmes matin et midi tous les jours (le frigo est bien rempli de légumes et fruits). Le WE, il n'y a quasi pas de cours du tout (yoga dans un parc - gratuit ouvert à tous, meditation fait par un enregistrement, yoga festval dans un centre commercial...) donc en arrivant vendredi, je n'ai eu une vrai journée de cours que lundi et je repartais mardi! La maison est correcte mais le terrain/jardin délabré, la piscine sale et sans transat et le jacuzzi infecte. La salle de yoga est le living aménagé de la 2eme maison... bref pas un endroit où l'on se sent bien! Ira et Valerie sont fermés à toute discussion, j'ai demandé de partir plus tôt et de trouver un arrangement financier. Ils se sont fachés, m'ont dit que j'étais fermée à toute expeperience, que j'avais de trop hautes attentes, ils ont crié et quasi insulté (attitude pas commerciale sans mentionné le fait que ce n'est ni compatissant ni serein ce qu'ils enseignent dans les cours!) Bref une très mauvaise experience, Je suis partie plus stressée qu'à l'arrivée. En aucun moment, on m'a demandé pourquoi j'etais là, ce que je recherchais, comment rendre mon séjour plus agreable.. au contraire! (J'ai déjà fait 2 retraites: Soulshine à Ibiza, Life Source à Tulum... totalement différentes et positives!) Bref pour moi, il ne s'agit pas d'une retraite... mais une maison de formation. Et en aucun cas, un moment de bien-être. N'hesitez pas à me contacter pour plus d'information.

    PROS J'ai aimé: Les quelques cours de yoga que j'ai eue étaient bien, la "massage" (energy healing) et l'acupuncture étaient super.

    Réponse de l'organisateur: Anna, we are so sorry that you felt you had such a bad experience. You were sent the retreat schedule with your Welcome email documents ahead, you are asked to customize your ideal stay. Initial retreat correspondence shares our weekend schedule differs from our week day schedule. Most guests are excited to join in any bonus "community activities" taught by us & other top teachers in the country. Total surprise as to why you were unhappy, we even had additional emails where you asked questions about the itinerary, we replied in numerous communications. You are also told ahead you will have nutritionally balanced detox and cleanse breakfast and lunch smoothies. These shakes are designed to be light for yoga & meditation, infusing you with 4 beverages thru the day with highly alkaline, full of anti-oxidants, organic shakes (some of the veggies from our gardens). Most clients are so thrilled with this experience, some wean themselves off caffeine addictions, photograph the recipes so they can continue this healthy lifestyle when they go home. In addition, we share our customized "local foodie Restaurant Guide" designed by us, so guests can dine out in 4 and 5 star restaurants walking or biking distance from our retreat, or cook in our state of the art kitchen. You are told all of this also in correspondence before booking. We truly did All in our power to support you, and you didn't even attend our daily meditations, this would have helped your well-being considerably. Namaste

    PROS J'ai aimé: It was more than I expected. I wanted meditation, yoga and some get away time. I got that and more. New friends and experiences that I will never forget. I'm taking a piece of them home with me. Ira is an awesome yoga instructor with such a great energy. His instruction is thorough and very easy to follow. He can quickly detail the important areas to focus on and your breathing. His voice and energy are so comfortable and supportive. Loved it and would recommend it to others.

    "Starting from the beginning. When I started looking for a school I had already been practising and teaching yoga and mediation for a few years but wanted to get a longer and more extensive training to get a better knowledge about all the parts of yoga. I found Zen Den Yoga Schools training on bookyogaretreats and something in my gut told me it would fit me. Said and done I booked the training. Before arrival I had some questions and they were all answered, maybe not as extensively as I would have wished but I was content with the replies."

    "I arrived at Zen Den by Uber in the middle of the night and it was easy to find for my driver. The other three girls living in the house were pretty much asleep and I tried to sneak in. The house we stayed in was a 4 bedroom, 10 bed house with a big kitchen and living room (no dining table/study table), 2 bathrooms, washing machine and dryer, patio, garden with fresh grown veggies (!), pool and a jacuzzi. With us as teacher trainees stayed retreat guests that stayed anywhere from 1-10 days. All of them were super lovely and it was great with some new energy winds mixing with us as students. (This is however different now as I think that the students live in one house and the retreat guests in another). Ira and Val, the teachers, live in the house next doors, which was great, I felt that their door was always open for questions and whatever we needed."

    "So in my training there was accommodation, books and manual, teacher training as well as breakfast and lunch included. You have the choice to not live and eat in the house as well and then you pay a smaller fee, for only the training. Beforehand I read what this breakfast and lunch contained and it was a green smoothie in the morning and a fruitier protein smoothie for lunch. They provide the ingredients for this and almost all of it was organic, so wonderful. This suited me perfectly as I don't like to practise yoga with a full stomach (who does?) as well as that I eat vegan and gluten free so these smoothies fit great into that. I did for eg replace the banana for example and Val and Ira were so attentive that they even went into detail explaining how they had built the ingredients list and for me to be cautious that I add something else with the same vitamin and nutrient contents. It was really lovely of them. With the smoothies I usually added some avocados, oats or something like that to make it a bit more filling so feel free to do that. Or maybe have something with them? The you choose your own dinner but I do recommend you eat healthy hearty food, you will need it."

    "The shala (the place to practise) was located in the house next doors (in total the were three houses with our house, the shala house and Val and Iras home). About a 1 minutes walk and there we could both practise and have lectures inside as well as have lectures outside which was awesome. The shala is a cute wooden floored room that would probably fit 15 people (just guessing, can't remember exactly) and we had great pillow options, blankets, blocks etc which was great as you will notice, which ever teacher training you choose, there is a lot of sitting and lecturing. We had a daily schedule starting usually at 8 am with the first sadhana (practise) of the day, a 20 minute meditation (different kinds) followed by pranayama (breathing exercises) and yoga asana (yoga poses). after that we had breaks, lectures, and more yoga asanas alternating during the day. We had a good amount of alone time as well (important for me). We usually ended at 5 pm if I recall correctly and after that we had some homework to do. Although the schedule was not exactly the same every day, they planned sunrise meditations, outside yoga, movie and documentary time etc for us to make it easier for us as 20+ days is intense. As I learn more and more about yoga, I realise that yoga is about being flexible in not only body but mind and attitude as well."

    "What will you learn? You'll learn about asanas, pranayama, the yogic attitude, the history of yoga, about the Sutras, about adjustments, about shamanic work, about giving, about opening your heart, about forgiving and so so so much more. I left knowing 3 full 1.5 hours sequences by heart with endless variations which was great. Oh and when you've completed a training at Zen Den you are always welcome to host retreats there for your own students, how great is that! And we got so much practical teaching, it was fantastic. Day in and day out we practised teaching. You're afraid? Of course, so are we all but we are there to learn. I could write a book about all the things we did, learned, experienced but I will leave some for you to experience as well. Val and Ira are so helpful, caring and knowledgable. Time and time again I saw how they supported, aided, gave space and more for us as students, it was pretty cool, I'm not sure I could do what they do, day in and day out, year after year. But there is one thing they are not and that is that they are not mind readers. So play with open cards, tell them what is in your heart, otherwise they cannot help you."

    "I did get everything I expected from my training and thanks party to my co-students as well as my teachers and myself, so much more. Not everyone in my group were ready mentally, physically and spiritually for a teacher training and this created friction, as you can imagine. This however taught me so much about myself, I am so grateful. Sometimes nothing you do helps, if you do this it's wrong, that is wrong as well as the third and fourth thing. Val and Ira did, in my opinion, as I was watching for the outside, everything they could, with all the information they had. I am happy to have been a part of this collective transformation that any good teacher training is. But as I said, they are not mind readers, so open up and share everything with them. They can handle it."

    "There are a few thing I want to add and they are the following. Don't go to a teacher training, any teacher training, of you are not ready in body and soul. With ready I mean ready to change, ready to learn new ways and ready to let people in. Without that, in my opinion, you are not ready to be a yoga teacher and not ready to deliver yoga to others. Further, follow the guidelines, they are there for a reason, eat well, you will need it, rest, you will need it, do the homework, it's not to much, it's what you need to learn. And most important of all, change your mindset. It's not hard, impossible or heavy. It's a challenge and do it with a smile! You attitude will shape your results and that is all on you! Val and Ira will do everything the can to aid you on you way, but you have to do the work."

    "Namaste and lots of love "

    "Wow! I don't even know where to start. I'm still overwhelmed by the emotions from all the transforming healing experiences I've made. Going to this retreat is the best decision I've ever made! It exceeded by far my expectations. I fought I would be doing some yoga near the beach and meet interesting people, little did I know, I would get in touch with my soul and all of humanity. "

    "I could write at length about the nice amenities, the beautiful surroundings, the farm to table smoothies, the nice restaurants in the area, the beach a 10 minute bike ride away but I'll focus on the people. Starting with the wonderful hosts and teachers Ira and Val: they are amazing, warm, welcoming and spiritual people who will rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit and purely on the yoga side: Ira is the best yoga teacher I've ever had. I also felt fortunate to meet and bond with other retreat participants and future yoga teachers from all the over the US and the world."

    "The meditations, the yoga sessions, the chanting, the acupuncture, the energetic massage and the extraordinary shamanic breath-work will bring you closer to yourself and others. I can't believe I've experienced so much in just 4 days! It has been life changing for me. Now I have a lot of work to do to answer my soul ;) Thank you for everything and hopefully till next time!"

Ira's knowledge about the eight limbs of yoga is so inspiring and he made sure all of us leave the program ready to teach. The school is intense but we had a great time with sunset meditation, weekly breakfast together etc. If you're looking for a teacher training that will set you apart as a teachers this is the school to choose.

    "I had an amazing time at Zen Den Yoga school even without being prepared for living in a shared house with Yoga student (future instructors). Everyone involved me from my arrival onwards as being part of the family and the hosts Ira and Valerie were super caring about me!"

    "Both are so perfect in their professions: Ira in sharing his knowledge (not teaching as I learnt), holding the yoga classes in a special way and organizing a variety of different methods in meditations, only during this 6 days of my stay. And Valerie as a nutrition and energy flow specialist is a great synergy for all their visitors and students!"

    "For me being a retreat guest, only, they still passionately voluntary organised all activities surrounding such as acupuncture, massage, SUP and other special exclusive classes."

    "For all those of you who want to change their lives in terms of learning more about the yoga philosophy and meditation, getting to know more about your body & own behaviours, becoming grounded and still enjoying the beach, sun and the town of Boca Raton I highly recommend to stay at the Zen Den school. It's a magical place and will remain forever in my heart, same as all the friends I made there, totally unexpected.... I believe all was meant to happen (even without my usual ahead planning) and I returned home with a changed and super-positive mind-set!"

    "First, Boca Raton is a very nice city (I was amazed :) ). Very wealthy, clean, and beautiful. You can do so many things there - I tried good restaurants (recommended by Ira and Valerie), went to the beach almost every day, visited Boca Raton Museum of Art, explored different parks along the beach, etc. There are so many places to see and activities to do there. I feel 1 week stay is quite of sort, 1 month would be perfect to "breath and enjoy" Boca Raton :)"

    "Above the location, the hosts are the best part of my experience. Ira and Valerie are very kind and nice. They are there to help you make the best out of your journey. Yoga classes, nutrition coaching, meditation guiding, acupuncture, massage, breath work... Should try them all! You will be surprised of what it can help your body and your mind. "

    "Zen Den Yoga retreat was exactly what I was hoping for. Valerie and Ira were great hosts. The house is well kept and tastefully put together. I found it relaxing, to hang out there, during down times. They also supply bikes for adventures away from the house; and it's a very short ride to stores, restaruants, ect. Uber is another way to venture further out. The morning classes were just right and Ira is very good at giving quality instructions during the classes to avoid injuries and achieve the poses. Very knowledgable, both of them. I plan to return."

They also taught us how to make our breakfast and lunch shake, which were flavorful and made me feel great! There are multiple yoga classes offered each and every day. "

    "Val and Ira were amazing hosts. They made sure all of their guests were happy during their stay. They were able to recommend fantastic restaurants around the area. They also offered use of their bikes to get to the yoga studio, beach, restaurants, etc. Ira runs most of the meditation and yoga classes - which are all awesome! Val gave a wonderful massage. They set up the most relaxing acupuncture appointments for us. "

    "This stay was the best way to spend a vacation. Both mind opening and relaxing. Thanks Ira and Val!"

  • Avis de Zen Den Yoga School in response to Sarah Miller's review, Florida

    "What is the truth is always what it seems to each individual in each moment given our states of mind and being. We have had over 200 students graduate from our yoga teacher training's and over 200 retreat guests stay with us over the past two years. So we are writing to share feedback as to what took place with the retreat guest who didn't even stay the night to experience her retreat. This guest shared a tremendously long story of her personal life details, poured out her emotions and points of views to me for the half an hour ride where we had picked her up from the airport. She shared that she took herself off of her meds, that she practiced yoga once a week, and everything else was to much for her to handle given her mental state of mind and the events leading up to her coming to our retreat. We arrived at the house and I gave her a tour of our hydroponic vegetable garden in the front of the house. (Take a look at our pics on the website zendenyogaschool.com) I spent time describing how the timers, the feed barrels, and the pumps all worked around the clock to keep everything growing. I explained the difference between the tower grows, box garden and jack pots. We are currently growing cabbage, kale, carrots, tomatoes, arugula, spinach, onions, basil, sun flowers, cucumbers, kolrabi and more. All of these fresh organic vegetables are for our retreat guests and yoga teacher training students. We then entered the house and I brought her to her clean private room with organic cotton sheets, bedding an area rug, and an orchid. It is true this orchid didn't have flowers on it, however the orchid was far from dead. It is alive and well with four beautiful healthy large leaves and roots growing out absorbing the moisture from the pot and air. I am assuming this guest didn't know anything about the stages of orchid growth. In the common areas, we make a point to change our cut flowers out each week. On a daily basis we clean out the flowers that die along the way. I then made her an organic fruit and protein smoothie and gave her a tour of the rest of the house. The house is very zen with yogi quotes, paintings, Buddha statues, and a large Om adorning our walls. The bathroom mentioned above (there are 2 in the house) has a full tub and shower along with a sink and toilet. It is Italian tumbled marble on the floors and walls. The tub is not only a tub but also a jacuzzi. It is likely this guest mistakenly hit the close the drain button as if to have a bath but didn't know it. Among our many weekly guests, housekeeper, and ourselves, we would know right away if there was a bad drain in the shower and would fix it immediately. To continue, our sink counter is made of wood and granite, with a big bowl sink made from stainless steel. The toilet is an efficient water use toilet and the bathroom door is wood with frosted glass. The entire retreat house has wall to wall Italian porcelain floors, an open window floor plan with lots of natural light, a state of the art kitchen with European appliances all stainless steal, stove, microwave, appliances, and oven. Our dishwasher and refrigerator are top of the line, and we have a Vitamix, a commercial grade juicer, as well as full set of pots, pans, coffee maker etc. It's possible the pool could have had some leaves in it because we have bamboo trees around the pool and it is often breezy here by the beach. We personally skim the leaves twice a day, and we have a pool maintenance person come once a week to keep our salt water pool running in tip-top condition. It is possible the hot tub cover may have some dirt on it from time to time due again to the beach breezes, however we can assure you the hot tub is very clean, and it is even an ionized hot tub so we do not use chlorine. "

    "After I made her the smoothie and gave her the tour, I showed her the map we have of the area. Around that time some other happy jovial guests came into the house, grabbed some things and jumped on the bikes we offer for use and went to the beach. This said she just wished to settle in, then she changed her mind and said she would go take a walk. She was a very nervous woman. I assured her she was safe in East Boca Raton, we are one of the wealthiest zip codes in the entire USA. Our own daughter who is 10 rides her bike on the same roads this woman took her walk on, and so do all of our guests who are 98% women. I then left the house and went to my store. About 15 minutes later this guest walked in our store, which is just two blocks from the retreat. I said hello and introduced her to my store manager. She left shortly after. On my way back to my own home, two blocks away and one house behind the yoga retreat house, I saw her walking. I honked and waived and she waived back, we are guessing based on her review that she has poor vision and confused me with a stranger. Four hours later at 7pm, she did not show up for class. I asked our other guests if she was coming and they mentioned that they saw her get into a cab. I called her to see that she was okay, particularly as it concerned me that she was off her medication and seemed so nervous. I reached her on the phone, and she explained she was having panic attacks and a break down. She said was afraid she was going to lose all rights to her baby because she abandoned her to come to South Florida for a retreat. She then told me she rented a car and was driving back to Jacksonville, Florida. She told me not worry about the money, she said that she was not ready to leave her comfortable environment and that this was all her fault. I assured her that when she was ready that she had credit with us and we would always welcome her here. She thanked me and got off the phone."

    "Sarah we are truly sorry you are going through so much challenge in your life right now. Be assured that everything will work out, just focus on the good. When we are not healthy our mind is a hard adversary instead of a good team mate coloring everything we experience. We wish you the best during your recovery from your traumatic experiences with your family. We really wished to have been able to support you through this as we do with so many people who come to us from all over the world. Namaste."

  • Avis de Sarah Miller

    "I had a horrible experience there and did not even stay the first night. The quotes healing environment, is right off of a very busy, loud road. The house is very hectic and nothing is state of the art. The only decoration in my entire blank room was a dead, rotting orchid. There was also a huge vase of a variety of dead, wilted flowers in the entrance to greet you. Very bad energy wise. The pool was covered in leaves, the hot tub was filthy with dirt. I took a shower in the one, very small bathroom for three people to share and the shower backed up water to my calves before draining. I tried to take a peaceful walk and was honked and hollered at by so many men I felt nervous and went back to the house. It is not in a safe area for a woman to walk alone. Nothing about this environment was healing, peaceful or Zen like and I feel truly duped. When I fled by taxi without sleeping in my bed or taking any yoga courses, five hours after I arrived Ira Shneider Ohm told me I had already been charged and not to expect any refund. I plan on contacting the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce. I was in a very vulnerable emotional state and was really seeking peace. "

    "Step away from your daily routine and offer yourself a different kind of vacation... combined it with a retreat that focuses on health, wellness, meditation,yoga, and more, joined with walks and sunbathing on the beaches of Florida. (It would be good to have a car to explore the beaches or you can take one of the bicycles available at the house). Zen Den Yoga School offered all of that which is what attracted me to it. You can go on your own or with a partner, friend, parent, or group, and experience life for as many days as you choose in a zen-like house with saltwater pool and hot-tub. If you are open to learning and to new experiences, and if you believe that life is a journey of expanding and discovering more about who you are, then you have come to the right place! Both Valerie and Ira, your hosts, have big hearts and aim at providing a holistic experience so that you come away feeling more knowledgeable and grounded than when you first arrived."

    "One of my best memories thus far at Zen Den Yoga School occurred during the second week of the intensive teacher training program. After having spent all day in the studio practising our breath work and Vinyasa sequence, a few of us decided to study after hours at the beach. "

    "Being one who learns by doing, I took my practise to the shoreline, alone. After spending nearly two hours practising the sequence and cues that Ira had been teaching us for the past 2 weeks I walked upshore and returned to the group."

    "I could see that they were excited to tell me something. The girls approached me with pictures, showing me that I had inspired several individuals to go into yoga poses on their own, behind me as I practised. This deepened my desire and inspired me further to become a yoga teacher."

    "I was not convinced I was ready or even wanted to do yoga teacher training, I did not think I would be the right fit or have the ability and wasn’t planning on teaching afterwards, just having the experience to improve my own personal practise. Now at the end of the month I have changed in a way I wasn’t expecting. Starting with Val and Ira and the other twelve people in my class, they shared and opened up with so much trust, love and respect that is hard to find. This was an intense month with many ups and downs but the environment at Zen Den is contagious and everyone is so positive and supportive, after the first few days we all felt like family. This was much more than what I was expecting. I did not just enhance my knowledge of postures and sanskrit words, but really learned a lot about all the mind, body, and spirit yoga truly is. I’m leaving with more confidence and with the desire to teach and share that I did not have before. This was a life-changing experience and I am so grateful and feel so privileged to know the beautiful people here and to have so many memories. Namaste."

    "Zen Den YTT Intensive July- August 2016"

    " "

    "My name is Ariel Bartolo-Kira - 20 years breathing in this lifetime. Prior to my discovery of and sudden proceeding enrollment in the Zen Den 200HR Yoga Teacher Training Intensive Progen, I had already attended and graduated from a 200H YTT Intensive Program in September of 2014; I’d also been teaching yoga for almost 2 years at LA Fitness, one year with FAU Campus Recreation, and a few months now, at Yoga 4 Life Studios by Juliana."

    " "

    "My purpose for stepping into another YTT Intensive Program had initially been to deepen my personal practise in every which regard and thus, authentically enhance and further my teaching practise (an additional intended function, yet also a beautiful byproduct)."

    " "

    "It is my dream and dharma to selflessly strengthen the Sadhana that saves me and allows me to truly live - my practise, rooted from love of Self, uniting the whole in pure and blissful peace/Samadhi. "

    " "

    "There must be growth and a progression in a teacher’s personal practise in order for said teachers teaching practise to organically flourish and thrive."

    " "

    "The way in which Ira Ohm and Valerie Leeds constructed, structured and delivered the program has allowed great capacity for depth and expansion of consciousness to be explored by the students. For those open to the journey, Zen Den offers an impactful guide and tools in which to utilize along the Self-reflective path."

    " "

    "Personally speaking, the number of self discoveries and “ah ha!” moments that I’ve encountered throughout this program is beyond recollection. Particular neural pathways that are in control of my thought process have called my awareness to attention and the tangible and intangible items that’ve been unveiled through this spotlight has sparked a shift in perspective in some regard. I am able to witness a distinction between the mind/body & the Spirit, whilst also recognizing that all the distinctions and dualities are grand pieces of the united “whole” or space seamlessness that comprises all of life (and death) as we know it. Every day, through the process of unfolding, I see my ego and watch as it gradually fades away from my sacred space of infinite light that is all that I am and forever will be…"

    " "

    "I’ve attained an extensive range of knowledge and with this knowledge, I’ve conceptualized the philosophy involving application as a means of acquiring wisdom, on a much deeper level. I now feel I can more forward humbly, as a teacher and as a guide, feeling much more confident and self-assured in my personal practise of meditation, pranayama, and asana; I intend to continue to strengthen my belief in my Truth through the daily study and practise of the 8 limbs of yoga and to never become complacent, for I know I must continually expand and discover. I know to be content, always, and to carry this peace in every situation and in all that I represent myself to be - not out off selfish desire, but out of love for divine Source present within me and in all of life’s elements/Prakriti. I have come to learn that I am the playwright and that the powers of the Universe reside in me. I am the creator of my own blockages - I am also the creator of all my liberating moments; it is my power of will that tears down or unities the whole world."

    " "

    "I thank Ira & Val from the depth of my very core for allowing me the space to connect with individuals that are within my same frequency (themselves included) and also those souls (as well as mine) craving balance in vibrations, in which the Universe has brought each of us together to grow individually and as a unit. "

    " "

    "The journey home is eternal with infinite possibilities. I intend to travel powerfully and with the purest of love."

    "I will continue to write my story and manifest a reality that best suits what I consider to be my Truth, without infliction of harm (ahimsa). I do not anticipate where I may wind up next, I simply move towards and accept and embrace whatever may cross my path with the understanding that the universe is in balance; everything is perfect… Everything is OK. Om Tat Sat. Whatever will be, will be and I am content to “just be” wherever I am, in any given moment of the eternal Now. It is the peace of knowing, that, no matter the situation or wherever I exist in this physical dream-like illusion that we call “reality”, I am safe. I am already home."

    " "

    "Emphasis on sutras & gita - great."

    " "

    "Suggested Improvements"

    " "

    "I feel that spacing out the test in such a way that the additional homework for that day would be review/answer the questions pertaining to that particular day’s subject matter/discussion (when it’s the most fresh in the intellect), rather than cramming all 100 questions in the last few days. The questions/answers provide another great tool out of the program to be utilized for continuous study, so I feel there should be a great span of time in which to thoroughly reflect and assess."

    "I felt Ayurveda was not really covered/discussed much; I feel it would be a great topic for discussion in depth."

    "I speak this with the purest love in my heart.. Be mindful of the tone in which you speak to student; there were several moments in which the energy expressed felt dark, condescending and egoic/arrogant. Speak and teach with compassion, always, sometimes word that were spoken and in the manner they were expressed felt contradictory of the teachings."

    "Attending a teacher training has allowed me to deepen my practise by means of proper alignment and extra attention offered in a small group setting. I find myself growing stronger despite my physical limitations allowing me to truly understand the poses and going further within."

    "I can also appreciate my first day of practising Mauna. Not being able to verbalize my thoughts enhanced my understanding of how we are all truly connected and the presence and energy we emit superseeds any word based communication. One would be surprised with the knowledge of knowing when to speak and when to be silent. "

    "The best moment lingering in my mind would be the day I taught my first flow. Some parts were on point, others not so much but the day I taught, I came to realise the knowledge will always be there and all I had to do was present it. "

    "Without ego or arrogance, only finding my center and peace from within the mind and the instructions will spell out effortlessly. "

    "Having chosen to attend this program as my “third time’s a charm” scenario, I can honestly say that I came in with a beginners mind and learned more about my practise in two weeks than I have in two years. So you can understand my predicament in not narrowing this down to just one experience. "

I had a much needed healing and deep tissue session with Val and I was impressed how strong she is. I am so glad I did this, you showed me I was ready for this journey. Thank you Val and Ira!"

  • Avis de Katherine KCzyzewski

    "I took a chance with a friend and went to Zen Den Yoga School for my spring break this year. I have been practicing yoga for a few years now, but am still learning. On the first day, Val and Ira were super welcoming! They greeted us and showed us around their beautiful home where we would be staying. I stayed in the "beach" room, which had great open windows with picturesque trees. "

    "Yoga classes are offered in the morning and afternoons, with morning meditation. I learned how to make smoothies for breakfast and lunch, which definitely kept me nourished during yoga classes."

    "I felt that I was able to experience the best of both worlds. I practiced yoga, relaxed and also took in the sites and restaurants Boca Raton had to offer as well. "

    "Ira was able to teach me how to correctly position my yoga poses, and I really enjoy the small class atmosphere. I felt like I had made new friends quickly in both Val and Ira and other guests staying at the retreat. Val's massage and energy therapy was absolutely amazing. She is a true talent. "

    "I would recommend staying and would love to travel to Zen Den again in the future. Namaste :)"

  • Avis de Rose Ericson-Caen

    "My Zen Den Yoga School 200 Hour experience has been everything that i Had hoped for and more. I decided to take the 30 Day Intensive and intense it is! My main concern when choosing a school was finding one that supported my yogic beliefs, one that was inline with the way i was introduced to yoga by the amazing instructors at my home studio. I am happy to report that Zen Den Yoga School answered all my desires plus more. Not only was traditional yoga asana covered with an emphasis on alignment, meditation, anatomy and physiology, sacred text (yoga sutras and bagavad gita) we also were taught nutrition, and were introduced to other cultural beliefs and helped to understand how all are similarly related. The learning environment is one of structure and flexibility with open discussions and no one ever being right or wrong. Zen Den offers housing at their Yoga House. Although i live locally and had no need to stay there, we would have some lectures at the house and it was comfortable and serene environment and the ladies that stayed there seemed to enjoy it very much. I would highly recommend this school for anyone interested in becoming a yoga instructor or even for deepening one’s own practice. I do intend, and at some point in the future on returning to pursue my 500 hour training with Zen Den Yoga School, Many thanks to Ira and Val."

The universe brought us together for a reason and i want to thank all for being a part of my growth. Ira, I want to thank you for taking your time with me and helping me awaken my soul.

    "Hi Val! Hi Ira! Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful time! I do apologize for not having properly said goodbye, I left Miami too late, (we were having fun) and missed Friday night's class. Sarah and I went out that night, she probably told you. ;-) I arrived in Geneva with a fit body and a rested mind, with lots of intentions to come back! I really enjoyed my time at the retreat, the classes and the interaction with you two and the rest of the folks. Have a great start of the year, and hope to see you again! Warmly, Esther"

    "I just completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training at zen den yoga school with Ira Ohm. My time spent was truly a trans-formative experience. I have learned so much in regards to mind, body, and soul connections. This course was so much more than just learning and being able to teach yoga; it was an in depth dive into the history and life style of yoga and a deep soul searching moment. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get certified to teach at the 200 hr level or anyone just wanting to strengthen their practice. Truly and whole hearted blessed to have had the opportunity to grow within the teachings of Zen Den Yoga School. Namaste."

    "Zen Den has been like a second home since I moved to Florida. Between the innovative teachers, exciting workshops and classes there is little to do but enjoy yourself in this beautiful space. As a newly certified 200 hour teacher and practitioner of Ira Ohm's for almost 2 years I can say with gratitude and confidence that Zen Den has changed my life."

    "I took the Zen Den Yoga Teacher Training in August 2014 and since I´m from Germany I had to stay at the beautiful Yoga House for the whole month. I have to admit: it was the best time I ever had. Was it challenging? Totally! Was it worth it? More than that! It was an awesome experience, I met great people there, the energy was unbelievable and I´m still thinking back on the time I had there! I´m grateful I took the chance and the challenge to fulfill my dream which I am now working with everyday! Get your Yoga on, it´s totally worth it! Namste."
