Tenerife

Tenerife is of volcanic origin and the largest of the seven Canary Islands. It is located around 300 kilometers from the African coast and about 1,300 kilometers from the Spanish mainland. It has an area of 2,034 square kilometers with the gigantic Pico del Teide rising up in the center to 3,718 meters, making it the highest point of Spain.

Tenerife is known throughout the world as the island of eternal spring. The traditional architecture of the Canary Islands takes its inspiration mainly from the traditional architecture of Andalusia and Portugal although it also has a strong personality of its own.

Tejina

The small resort Tejina lies on the rocky coast in the northeast of Tenerife. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Anaga Mountains. The village and the surroundings are very rural and idyllic. The climate is extremely pleasant as temperatures do not sink below 17 degrees Celsius, even in winter.

A harvest festival is an important event and the people of Tejina have a rather unusual way to celebrate it. The festival is called ''The Hearts of Tejina'' and is held in August. Hearts are decorated with flowers, fruit, and cakes, and each heart is around 12 meters tall and weighs about 1,000 kilograms.

When the three main neighborhoods in the town bring out the hearts that they have been working on for a month, an entertaining ritual begins, in which each neighborhood mocks the others' hearts. The festivity dates back over a hundred years.

    "Where to begin! I couldn't have made a better choice for my Teacher Training Course - it was the most incredible experience I've ever had and it's already helped me open doors to exciting aspects of life. I spent months looking for a teacher training course and as it was my first, I wanted to make sure I chose the right one, as anyone would. I came across the suggestion for Gayatri School of Yoga in Tenerife, which I was immediately drawn to. The course syllabus was very clear and concise, the location seemed fantastic and it was definitely within the budget that I set. So I contacted Radhika in order to receive further information such as room sharing, the cost of staying extra nights and her overall opinion of a very recent yoga practitioner. Her responses were extremely prompt and everything she said was delivered with courtesy and care. It was a no brainer to book the course! The location - I have to say, exceeded all of my expectations, wow!! The school itself is based within Tejina, which is situated in the north of Tenerife and is within a commutable distance to Santa Cruz, of around 45-50 minutes collectively (Tenerife's capital city). The facilities were immaculate and they were kept that way. There wasn't a moment where we went without anything that we required. We were all very well fed throughout the course, as Radhika and Kiran would frequently shop for us to ensure what had what we wanted (obviously within a yogic lifestyle - vegetarian etc). The Ashram (Yoga studio) was beautiful and spacious enough to fit well over 40 people comfortably I would say. The beauty of my experience was, that there were only 5 of us in total which meant that we had a more intimate and in depth education where none of us ever felt isolated. The bedrooms are spacious also and the double bed that I had was incredible! I was never uncomfortable once. There is also a lovely area outside where you can chill out, sit in the sun or go for a swim in the decent sized swimming pool. I never needed a thing. The course was also a surprise for me, in the sense that it also exceeded what it had promised to deliver. I learnt so much, I can't begin to describe it. It lives up to it's promise of being intensive, i can promise you that! The theory was exciting for me and we would often share discussions of the topics we were studying. The syllabus is more than meets the criteria it sets out to deliver. I couldn't have felt more enthused and ready to go into the world of teaching without this course! The practical lessons were always different, exciting and challenged all of our skills, minds and bodies. We were encourage to teach micro lessons within the first week. Trust me, you will want to do this! There is no better thing, other than to immerse yourself into it and I can honestly say, you will feel amazing once you've nailed your first lesson!! We all progressed at slightly different rates although this was never a problem as myself and my friend Alberto both took our exams early under the recommendation of Radhika and Kiran. We weren't left behind once we had passed as there was always something to learn from the others and we both enjoyed helping the other students when they wanted it. It was my first experience of meditation and anything yogic that wasn't relating to a generic practice of Vinyasa. I absolutely, adored every part of it, to the point where I have incorporated it into every single day since I started the course. I was in love with yoga before, I would say it's in my blood now and I owe Radhika and Kiran for their guidance and knowledge that they've spread to us all. So the teachers, this is where the true meaning of love resonates! Radhika and Kiran are quite simply, two of the most sincere, friendly and hospitable people you will probably ever meet! Their generosity, selflessness and kindness are a handful of their many qualities. I really do owe so much to these two lovely people for what they've helped me achieve. The volumes of time they invested into all of us allowed us to grow and develop throughout the course. Help was always available and nothing was ever too much to ask. I fully recommend this course to anyone, you're in the best hands!"

    "I followed the TTC at Gayatri Toga and it was just perfect and very inspiring. Radhika and Kiram are lovely people and very good teachers. The group is small so you get all the attention. The way they teach is very motivating, inspiring, straight forward, stimulating, clear, joyful, personal and very warm. The location is fantastic. A beautiful big big house with terraces, nice bedrooms, a swimming pool, lots of space to hang out and a huge yoga room. It's located in a smart little real Spanish village and close to the ocean. Thanks a lot Radhika and Kiram for the fantastic time. I learned a lot and had a great time. So for everybody who reads this and is looking for the right spot to do the TTC: go for it!!"

    "The Gayatri school is focused on student success and truly explores the roots of yoga in an engaging and intelligible way. There is focus on correct asana practice, as one would find at any other school, but there is a spiritual component and ayurvedic philosophy that really grounds the practice while giving the entire teacher training a deeper meaning. Both Radhika and Kiran care about their students and have a wealth of collective knowledge they are always happy to share. I enjoyed every minute of the training and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in pursuing yoga for a personal journey or to share with other. "

    "This was my first yoga retreat, and it was absolutely worth going there. This school is in a charming house in a small and calm beach village where you can totally relax yourself and get energized by the great practices of Yoga. Radhika and Kiran are both great teachers and full of positive energy!"

    "I enjoyed every minute and my wish to recover from stress, a lack of sunshine and regaining energy got all wonderfully fulfilled. Recommendable to anybody who wants to give yoga a try or deepen its practice and feel connected to nature while doing so!"

  • Review by Anna from Undisclosed

    "Travelers kindly beware of a few objective facts: no internet, old house - means toilets that do not flush properly (all dirty toilet paper must be placed in a bin next to lavatory), located in very desolate town / village (not recommended without a car), on the North side of Tenerife which is predominantly overcast / cloudy (very limited sunshine vs. south Tenerife), no door between sleeping dorm and kitchen eating area, yoga OK, but not more than that. Finally, I would not be surprised if the owner posts a personal attack on me, following this honest review - any such action on behalf of the owner should, of course, speak for itself and entice at least a few healthy doubts about whether this is a truly spiritual place that one wants to visit. In sum, I would not recommend this place to my own friends, and am merely extending my objective view to those of you who do not personally know someone who has stayed at Gayatri yoga. With the kindest regards, your fellow traveler."

    "Important Note:"

    "The location and accommodation have changed since then."

    "Hari Om from Gayatri Yoga, Tenerife"

    "This review is not a real reflection of our yoga courses, and we want you to understand, that we run a Yoga School and not a Hotel. In this case, the expectation of one person was different, to what we offer. It is important for us, that our students are mindful and always Karma Yogis. First of all, we describe our guests as students or trainees, not as 'travelers'. "

    "This is may the reason for the confusion. All our booking details and other important information are written on our website and contact page. That's why we do not understand the polemic. Here now, some of the information we provide on our website, with respect to the complaint points, written in the review. Internet: There is no Internet access available in the school, speak to each other. Please use the internet as minimally as possible during your stay. Let us learn to live life without having to view our phones every few minutes."

    "There are 4 places with Wifi, just 2 minutes away from the school. Isolated Village: San Juan de la Rambla in the north of Tenerife is a small charming fishing village. We have 2 Supermarkets, Pharmacy, Bars, Restaurants, Bus Stand and a Natural Swimming Pool, just around the corner. There are regular buses to Puerto de la Cruz (8km). We are not Isolated at all. House: The village and the building of our school are considered as national heritage.(That means the house is very old, more as 300 years, and protected). Toilet Paper: This problem is found at many places on the Canary Islands. Already in the airport, you will be asked to use the bin)."

    "Predominantly overcast / cloudy: Temperature between 17º and 18º C in winter, and up to 24º or 25º C in summer. There is no door because it is part of your personal space, where nobody can look in. Yoga, ok: This is the most important point for us, many thanks. Yoga is the reason why our trainees come to visit us, and we are always there for our students. It's impossible for us to make everybody happy, but we try very hard."

    "We are very satisfied with our stay. The instruction was very good. The environments were nice with an friendly atmosphere – this applies both to the beautiful old house and the village. We were even lucky with our companion yogis. (Cristina became our vegetarian chef. ) Keep an eye on the weather forecast and bring warm clothes."

  • Review by Helen from England

    "I would highly recommend Gayatri School of Yoga. I've just returned from my training as a YTT200 there and had a great time. The setting is just beautiful, the facilities are perfect and were all I needed, and Radhika and Kiran were excellent and loving teachers of Hatha Yoga and, through their deep knowledge and understanding, I feel I have learned so much. They stretched me in mind, body and spirit and I will be always grateful that I chose their course out of all those out there. Intensive courses like this can sometimes leave new teachers feeling unprepared"

    "for the job they have qualified to do. But not this one. The guidance I received was excellent and I feel totally ready to teach all aspects of Hatha Yoga straight away."

  • Review by Ida from Finland

    "For me Gayatri Yoga has felt like a home away from home, since the first time I met Radhika and Kiran. It was no doubt for me that this was the school where I wanted to do my TTC, and I was very happy I did. Both Radhika and Kiran are amazing open-minded teachers that honestly care and take in consideration each student as an individual as well as the group. The TTC in general as well as the course days are very well structured and easily adjusted when needed, without effecting the quality of the teaching which is professional and easy going. The course is intensive but the time is spent effective and any rising obstacles are faced with a sense of humour and open heart. To this school you can really come as you are."

  • Review by Sanna from Sweden

    "I did my Yoga Teacher Training at Gayatri Yoga in January and it was an amazing month. Radhika and Kiran aren't just great teachers, they are great people filled with love for their students and yoga. I learned so much during my time at Gayatri. It is an intense training and most evenings you are doing homework or preparing classes but the month was still full of laughter. I miss dinner time with the other girls, eating and laughing so much that we got cramps in our stomaches. One day a week is a day off and then there is time to explore the island a bit or just relax at the beach. The student groups at the school are small so Radhika and Kiran really have time for everyone and they see everyone. They are always available after class if you have questions or need help. I can really recommend Gayatri School of Yoga to everyone that wants to do a Hatha yoga TTC. Radhika and Kiran, I miss your classes and I miss you and thank you for making my TTC unforgettable!"

  • Review by Eva from Germany

    "I attended the course at Gayatri as I had the impression that the schedule is very much based on the Indian tradition and would cover all the basics in asana practice, meditation and pranayama. And it was definitely the best decision I could do. We covered all the important topics, the teachers were always there for us and any questions that could arise. We got lots of opportunities to teach the group and gain experiences. The food was also based on a Indian diet but we cooked within the group and it was always delicious. The group dynamic itself was also amazing. No competition but we tried to support each other where we could and became a family for that intensive month. We dedicated all our time apart from eating and sleeping to our studies, it was actually more intense than I expected it to be, but it was great. We actually became all the tools we need to go out and teach. With knowledge and confidence. I'm really grateful for having be able to take my TTC in Tenerife. The place itself is also beautiful, you see the coast, we had a pool and lots of space to study. I loved the experience and can only just recommended to everyone doing the training there, far away from all the daily disturbances of normal life."

    "The 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program is a unique and powerful experience. Be ready for a real challenge and even a life-changing experience. I achieved more than I could have imagined through the TTC Yoga training course. The Yoga teachers, Radhika and Kiran were always there for us, they inspired us with knowledge and practical guidance of the fundamentals of a comprehensive Hatha Yoga and the perspectives of yoga philosophy. The training has prepared me to become a yoga teacher and I look forward to my continued growth on the road of yoga."

  • Review by Melanie from Canada

    "The school was phenomenal. In a great location with all the amenities one could hope for. The teachers were caring and always made us feel at home. I felt as if I was learning from a true set of masters. Both Kiran and Radhika went past the basic asana practice to delve into the spiritual heart of the yogic practice. I hope to go back again one day and I would recommend this training to anyone who is interested in learning about what it means to be a true yogi. I found the historical and philosophical discussions invigorating and mentally stimulating. I enjoyed Radhika's commitment to our understanding of the culture of yoga and ability to consider all aspects of the Hindu metaphysical framework in a way that was most relatable to the students. Radhika was also very well versed in anatomy and the science behind many ayurvedic practices, often citing experiences from her past as a lab tech in pharmacies and veterinary clinics as a way to connect ancient practices to western practices. I appreciated the teamwork of Kiran and Radhika, both teachers using their own style that complemented each other while still ensuring the students were given enough time to practice necessary material. Their comments were always thoughtful and they worked very hard to ensure we were well taken care of."

    "Choosing Gayatri Yoga School of Tenerife for my TTC is the best decision I have ever made in my life. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. Radhika, the course director spent so many hours extra with us and explained absolutely every little question we had about yoga and teaching yoga. It seemed like she had thought of everything and her endless energy inspired us to be mindful and to work intensely for our goals. School was well prepared for our intensive month of learning that no obstacles would interfere with hour daily schedule. This way we could dedicate our maximum energy to learning and practicing. Radhika and Kiran are such loving and inspiring people I have rarely come across in my life before. The school atmosphere they had created, their attention and care were so profound and unique I would certainly recommend it to everyone who is considering becoming a yoga teacher."

    "I have spent in Gayatri Yoga 7 days (Yoga Bed&Breakfast) and I enjoyed every day, every hour and minute there. First, Gayatri Yoga is situated in a beautiful and very quite little town in North of Tenerife. It is a perfect place in Tenerife for those who are looking for a quiet place, peaceful surrounding. I had everything what I needed and even much more:"

    "very comfortable bed, more than enough food for my breakfast, cozy kitchen where I could make food, dining room, small terrace just out from the bedroom and big terrace on the top of the house where I could enjoy beautiful view to the mountains and the ocean. Teachers asked me every day if I have enough everything what I need. And now the most important part: yoga classes and teachers. I tried several yoga schools in Bergen (Norway), but coming here I realized that I didn't know almost anything about yoga. I have never met before people in my life for whom yoga means so much: it is their life, their passion. Kiran and Radhika are definitely professionals, giving best possible classes, explanation and inspiration. My holidays with Gayatri yoga is a wonderful experience and no doubt I will return there."

  • Review by Austin from USA

    "My week with Radhika and Kiran was magical. Every morning started with a beautiful, calm, rejuvenating class of meditation, breathing and a yoga. The perfect start to the day followed by breakfast on the beautiful rooftop terrace. I've practiced yoga all over the world, but Radhika is the most knowledgeable western yogi I have ever met. Information oozes out of her with passion, love and respect in her theory classes. In the afternoons, I would explore the breathtaking beaches or hike up a nearby mountain. In the evening, Kiran's yoga classes were perfect traditional Hatha yoga classes that left me feeling completely balanced. The food is excellent. The house is a peace palace. Love is Everywhere. I was so full of bliss that I'm not sure if my feet ever touched the ground. I was floating on a cloud the whole week. I will go back. I am very very happy that I found this place. It is certainly my version of paradise. You absolutely MUST experience this. Your spirit will thank you."

    "My wife Rose and I just spent a week exploring the lovely island of Fuerteventura while based in this great yoga centre. The central location is within easy drive of all the sights and beaches. We opted for the Yoga B+B option with morning and evening yoga classes taught by Radhika and Kiran. Their warm welcome and genuine heartfelt teaching style"

    "draws from the Shivananda and Satyananda traditions and includes asana, paranayama, meditations and yoga nidra. Plenty of individual attention available, the classes would suite all levels from beginner to advanced. At breakfast after morning class, Radhika's local knowledge pointed us in the right direction for the day out exploring the island. We were so relaxed after the evening class that we usually opted for the tasty evening meal available at the centre. The Gayatri Yoga Centre gets a big thumbs up from us both. We will be back!"

    "Dear Radhika and Kiran, Thank you! With love and patience you've helped me push myself outsideof all comfort zone to embrace parts of myself I was too impatient to explore. I love the Gayatri home. Every picture, flower, sound and smell to rise this house made me feel good from deepest part inside me. Even though typical life may not always be made of the perfect recipe of magic, such as that, that you have created, it is so strong, that it is able to resonate inside me. I've found a peaceful home for myself within my heart and that feels very good. I intend on taking the lessons taught in this experience with me through each moment of my days. I will spread sunshine where ever I can. Thank you for that gift. "

    "Just an amazing place to be! I really felt at home while staying last month at Gayatri school! I truly miss it already! Radhika and Kiran are really nice and professional! I learned so much and I enjoyed all the moments of all the 200 hours of the teacher training! The house itself is really cozy and it has a beautiful roof terrace."

    "Also there is a nice natural pool nearby. The village is authentic with not so many tourists around. I highly recommend it. An excellent month to spend in an extraordinary place of which you step out as a fully ready yoga teacher! Million thanks Radhika and Kiran!"

  • Review by A traveler from St. Gallen, Switzerland

    "Die Location ist wundervoll - ein Tempel inmitten eines Dorfes auf Teneriffe. Radhika & Kiran sind die besten Hosts, die man sich wünschen kann. Ihre herzliches und sympathisches Sein vermittelt das Gefühl von Zuhause. Die Zimmer sind gross, die Küche sehr gut ausgestattet. Der Garten sowie die Terrasse verschaffen einem den Ausblick auf die wundervolle Insel. Die Atmosphäre im Haus ist harmonisch und ruhig. In der Shala hat man das Gefühl, in Indien zu sein. Radhika & Kiran haben ein fundiertes Wissen in Yoga und das TTC war einfach genial! Eine Erfahrung, die ich nicht missen möchte. Ich hoffe, sie bald in der neuen Schule besuchen zu können und wünsche ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg. Namaste"

    "Bliss! Doing a TTC was a long time dream and I'm so happy I got to do it with Radhika and Kiran. They're both extremely knowledgeable and caring, and the classes are always inspiring. I've learned so much here and I'm ready to teach! The beautiful house has a special character and is very comfortable (rooftop terrace, sea view, big kitchen, comfy beds). The village is lovely and had good connections with other places on the island. I feel calm, rejuvenated and ready to bring everything I've learned here back home."

    "Kiran and Radhika are so loving and try to fulfill all wishes and always have an open ear for problems had. It is an Ashram far from India, with considerably more comfort than there. I attended a TTC and have to say it was the best decision for me to REALLY prepare for yoga classes. Small group intensive lessons. Both Teacher live your "profession", are wholeheartedly here. Highly Recommended. I really enjoyed the time. There were 4 very special weeks. Thanks for Kiran and Radhika."

    "Greatly enjoyed staying in the big, colorful single room. The free use of the pantry and kitchen made it easy to cook to one's own fancy and diet (a few more kitchen utensils (e.g. extra knives and cutting boards would have been useful, though :-) )). Radhika and Kiran are very warmhearted, welcoming and generous hosts. Gracias por un mes muy especial!!"

    "I've spent one month in the school, attending the Yoga Teacher Training course and it has been a wonderful experience, something I could repeat over and over, without getting tired! The building is an ancient Spanish house, nicely decorated with Indian inspiration and always perfectly tidy and clean; the surroundings and the village are amazing, I particularly loved the sea and the natural pools."

    "Radhika and Kiran are a kind, lovely couple and their clear, mindful teachings reflect their way to be, they have always been helpful with me and the other girls..I enjoyed very much their company and my stay in this house, where I could truly deepen my knowledge and practice of Hatha yoga."

    "I spent one month for my TTC training. The house is very beautiful, clean and a great place to stay. You really feel like home there. San Juan De La Rambla is a sleepy nice town with great nature around. The yoga classes are excellent and I really recommend going there, either on vacation or on yoga teacher training."

    "I did my teacher training for a month in Tenerife. What a beautiful village, close to the water and the view is amazing. I am SO happy with my teacher training and I got all the tools I needed and more. Back home I was ready to kickstart it all but sad to leave the beautiful yoga school. Radhika and Kiran are amazing. A big thank you and I hope I can visit soon again!"

    "I spent a month doing my TTC teachers training with Gayatri yoga it was a lovely experience you learn and grow ever single day. The area is very beautiful,scenic and only a 10 minute walk away from amazing natural swimmining pools. The house is really pretty, very zen I felt very at home for my months stay and very clean also. Radhika and Kiran are such amazingly lovely and inspiring people that are sure to make you smile :) In this month I've grown so much and learned so much space of time I couldn't have hoped for better. You should definitely come to this school ;D"

    "Hari Om, That was the most powerful month in my life. The TTC course is very intense but everyday gives you new pranic energy to learn more and improve your strength.Radhika and Kiran will guide you through the secrets of Hatha Yoga. Throughout their great knowledge and experience they will make you confident in teaching Yoga. You will discover your hidden skills and abundant abilities of your mind and body. Gayatri School is located in very inspiring village San Juan de la Rambla. The morning window view is breath taking. After the classes when you feel tired have a cooling and refreshing swim in the natural pool located only 10 minutes from the house. Don't think twice just book your TTC with Gayatri School now. Namaste Rhadika and Kiran! Maya :]"

  • Review by Patricia from Brussels, Belgium

    "I spent one month following a Yoga Teacher Training and it was fantastic. Contact and information before arriving were excellent and reassuring. From the very first second I felt at home; the place is calm, beautiful, and inspiring. Rooms, kitchen, bathroom are perfectly clean and comfortable. Surroundings are very peaceful, with typical volcanic landscapes. Warmly recommended to lay on the hammocks to sunbathe during the day and to watch the stars at night :-)The yoga room is so beautiful, clean and appropriate for very inspiring practice and teaching. The course is perfectly adapted to the students, which small number is highly appreciated. It contains a perfect balance of practice and theory. I hope I can come back soon, for more yoga training or just for combining quality and inspiring yoga practice with exploring a gorgeous island."

  • Review by Torita from UK

    "I spent one month with Radhika and Kiran doing my yoga teacher training. Before arriving I was nervous but there was no need to be at all. Radhika and Kiran made me feel welcome straight away and I have never felt so quickly at home in a house that I had never been to before.The house is peaceful and perfect for studying yoga; It is surrounded by a beautiful volcanic landscape and situated in a sleepy little village. It is a different world to all the usual tourist traps found along the coast of the island.Both Radhika and Kiran are excellent yoga teachers, with very different teaching styles from which to draw inspiration. Both have a deep and spiritual understanding of the practice of yoga, which also shines through in the way they live and interact with others.I really could not recommend Gayatri Yoga enough. If I could, I would go back and do it all again. Truly one of the best and most special experiences of my life. You will not regret it!"

  • Review by Julia from Vaxjo, Sweden

    "Oh wow! I dont really know where to start and find enough words to describe this amazing experience I had in Gayatri Yoga. This is a trip which changed my life - now I know that I can be 100% happy and thank you Radhika and Kiran for showing me the right way to the peace and happiness and for opening your hearts for me. Ive spent in Gayatri Yoga 10 days of intensive yoga training and I enjoyed every second of it.We had a classes for almost 6 hours every day - and they give you so much energy and peace, also challenges, but thats what make you grow every day. The house is purely amazing - all facilities are adapted for your maximum comfort and are very on a high level. And you can feel positive energy around you - in the classes, in the food they prepare or outside the house.For those who want to explore the island (which I did and highly recommend it!) please book a car and go around the island, it really has many beautiful places to offer and its very different in the different parts. (Check the pictures attached to my review). If you have any doubts - forget them, just do it, just go and feel it for yourself! You would never forget this experience!"

    "Lo primero quería agradecer el amor, y el corazón que le ponéis a vuestra formación, no solo se transmite el conocimiento, si no las energías y la sabiduría del Yoga; esta ha sido la parte más importante para mi, así como el demostrar que el ser Yogi o Yogini no es un titulo, si no un estado de vida, en el que el amor es la base de todo. Mi formación en Gayatri, me ha dado la seguridad y la confianza para comenzar mi nuevo camino como Yogini, y una vez más agradezco el haber podido compartir con ustedes, uno de los meses más importantes de mi vida....Om Shanti Om."

  • Review by Heidi from Spain

    "Eso es lo que me llevo de este mágico lugar, llegué de casualidad sin ninguna expectativa y me ha cambiado la vida. Lo necesitaba profundamente y el destino me llevó. Si estas dispuesto a dar un paso más, aprender a concentrarte, respirar, flexibilidad, cuidarte... A parte de conocer la Isla. Imprescindible alquilar coche para tener independencia. Es el equilibrio perfecto. Yo he pasado una semana en B&B y repetiria hoy mismo. Me he hecho el propósito de volver de nuevo para recordar todo lo aprendido. Sin duda el amor con el que enseñan, porque enseñan de verdad Radha y Kiran es sin duda el resultado de este amor que respiran hacia la India y el Yoga. Pureza, Amor y Sabiduria."

  • Review by Jessica from Spain

    "He pasado una de las mejores semanas de mi vida en Gayatri Yoga. Escogí la opción de Yoga Bed & Breakfast y la recomiendo al 100%. El lugar es mágico para desconectar y olvidarte de todo. Las clases de yoga son estupendas. Todo estaba muy limpio y ordenado. La comida vegetariana deliciosa. Los profesores Radhika y Kiran son unas personas increíbles. Transmiten mucha paz y te hacen sentir como si estuvieras en tu propia casa. Sin duda, volveré muy pronto a ese lugar. Desde aquí les mando un abrazo enorme a los dos y les doy las gracias por haber sido partícipes de una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. Hasta pronto Radhika y Kiran."

  • Review by Yolanda from Spain

    "He pasado una Semana Santa increible junta a Radhika y Kiran. Todo lo que puedo decir de esta estancia es positivo: su hospitalidad, el cariño con el que te tratan, la comida (ese pan recién hecho por la mañana, que rico). La casa está preciosa, cuidado todo hasta el mínimo detalle para que estés muy a gusto, con toques de la India en la decoración. Lo cierto es que he sido muy feliz estos días, con la sensación de haber estado en un hogar, ¡mejor que en mi casa! ya que me he relajado de verdad y disfrutado. Estoy muy, muy, muy agradecida porque Radhika y Kiran me han ayudado a combinarlo todo, relax, turismo, aprendizaje... Gracias a ellos he avanzado muchísimo en la práctica del Yoga, tanto físico como mental y el curso de Ayurveda fantástico. Radhika lleva más de 20 años de experiencia, estudiando junto a grandes maestros y se nota el esmero que tiene al enseñarte. Se vuelca en que aprendas y da lo mejor de sí misma en todo momento. Es la mejor. Y me llevo un recuerdo maravilloso, además de salud y muchísima paz. ¡¡Gracias a los dos! ¡Vaya par de profesores geniales!! Y por supuesto repetiré muy pronto. Lo recomiendo a todo el mundo."

  • Review by Manu from Spain

    "Mi hermano y yo hemos estado en esta escuela durante una semana participando diariamente a las sesiones de yoga y meditación por la mañana y por la tarde, mientras que durante el resto del día hacíamos las turistas por la isla. Radhika y Kiran son personas y profesores maravillosos, nos han mimado y hecho sentir en nuestra casa desde el primer día, atentos a cualquier pequeño detalle, pero al mismo tiempo absolutamente respetuosos hacia nuestro espacio y privacidad. También las comidas que hemos hecho allí (desayuno y cena) han sido exquisitas!! No éramos solas en nuestra estancia y eso nos ha permitido tener la suerte de conocer a gente encantadora que estaba estudiando para ser profesora de yoga y a otros practicantes como nosotras. Aconsejamos alquilar un coche para moverse cómodamente y visitar los alrededores que merecen la pena sin lugar a duda! Hay playas y vistas maravillosas, lugares paradisiacos, donde al mismo tiempo no hay demasiados turistas, así que la serenidad interior absorbida en la casa de Radhika y Kiran"

    "no viene para nada contaminada por el contexto exterior. Al contrario, cada detalle ha hecho que estas vacaciones fueran absolutamente inolvidables."

La casa es muy amplia, muy limpia, tiene muchísima luz y tiene varios espacios en los que poder disfrutan tanto dentro"

    "de casa como en la parte de fuera. Es un lugar que trasmite calma, armonía, alegría y si se quiere, nunca falta una buena conversación. De verdad, es muy, muy, muy recomendable."

  • Review by Laura from Spain

    "Hari Om!! Sincera y personalmente ha sido un auténtico regalo y un placer formarme en hatha yoga en este entorno único y excepcional. Es un mes de mucho trabajo en todos los niveles y te facilitan absolutamente todo lo necesario para que lo disfrutes y lo vivas con alegría y cariño. Las personas que han venido para el yoga han encajado perfectamente en los horarios y prácticas. Mis queridas compañeras de curso han sido maravillosas, y me ha encantado compartir esta experiencia tan especial con ellas. Supongo que este lugar atrae a las personas adecuadas, con ganas de aprender y de disfrutar de cada pequeño reto que se presente. Estoy eternamente agradecida a todas ellas, a Radha por sus cuidados, por su atención y por su incondicional cariño, y a Kiran por su saber hacer, por su plena dedicación y por su motivación. Gracias y Hasta Siempre, os llevo en mi corazón!! Hari Om Tat Sat!"

    "Namasté, no me puedo imaginar una mejor forma de iniciarme como profesora de Yoga con Radhi y Kiran, con las facilidades del idioma, la sabiduría que traen de la India, las comidas de Radhi, la hospitalidad que ofrece, el sentirte mejor que en casa, y la oportunidad de conocer esta fantástica isla. La verdad es que se lo recomiendo a todo el que esté dudando, yo dudaba y por impulso decidí hacerlo y fue una gran elección."

    "Para mí la estancia en Gayatri Yoga fue maravillosa, una experiencia formidable en todos los aspectos. Radhika y Kiran, Profesores y queridos amigos, transmiten en sí mismos las enseñanzas del Yoga en todos sus aspectos, su experiencia y sabiduría, son realmente un tesoro! El lugar donde se ubica la casa es una invitación al reencuentro"

    "con la paz y la tranquilidad, donde el tiempo se detiene y nos damos cuenta que estamos justo en el lugar indicado para relajarnos por completo y disfrutar de una experiencia que nos aporta en salud, bienestar, conocimiento, guía, etc. por otro lado, la casa es hermosa, espaciosa, con mucha luz, ventilación, hermosas vistas, delicadamente decorada y muy bien cuidada, las habitaciones cómodamente equipadas y espaciosas, el entorno perfecto para disfrutar de una confortable y muy cómoda estancia, en un entorno pacífico y natural..."

  • Review by Paola from Argentina

    "Es la mezcla perfecta de tranquilidad, excelentes clases de Yoga en una sala soñada con vistas a las montañas y sus casitas que parecen puros cuadros, comida casera hecha por Radha, una casa llena de paz y buena energía, impecablemente limpia y nueva. Es tan fácil sentirse como en casa que luego se transforma en un imán al cual regresamos. Yo estuve un mes haciendo el TTC intensivo...ha sido una experiencia increíble, tanto que he regresado para otro curso, una maravilla! Y además el pueblo tiene una ubicación excelente, cerca de las playa y piscina naturales,a un paso de la ciudad, a 20 min del aeropuerto..impresionante. La calidad humana de Radha y Kiran...sumada a todo lo anterior...es un lujo!"
