Raquel was born in Spain and moved to London in 1999 where she started her yoga practice. She quickly noticed the profound effects occurring through her varied Hatha yoga practices, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Seeking to deepen her knowledge of yoga she undertook a one-year teacher training course in 2007 in London followed by further training in Mysore, India.

"Highly recommend this YTT!!!"
For me it was more a last minute booking and I didn't do a lot of research before. And I just can say: I LOVED IT - GO FOR IT! Mark, Raquel and Ester really know what they are doing. There was also a great assistent Marie who supported us learning sanskrit and where ever she could. The course was very well structured and prepared us all very well for the final"quiz" and practicum. There was so much knowledge and I can't believe how huge the progress was just in 3 weeks.. I love the cortijo - it is the perfect location, so beautiful, peaceful and great vibes ❤ I will come back for sure. Thank you so much! Big hug Verena 😊

"Truly amazing and valuable TTC"
I can highly recommend this teacher training course. It is reasonably intensive, curriculum is wide and very interesting, teachers are very credible with excellent teaching skills as well as caring, devoted and compassionate. I learnt so much from them and deepend even more my interest into various yoga practices. Initially I came to course to advance my own practice without intention to teach afterwards, but they made me ready and wanting to pass yoga knowledge onto the others. The place itself is magical, beautiful and so calm - excellent for a course like this. Reasonable amount of participants at course too.

"Great YTT experience in Spain, highly recommended!"
Great Teaching Style, very open and friendly, adapted to every individual level.
Best possible location for this, no noise, only mountain views, fresh fruit, tranquility.
I studied for my level 1, 200hr yoga teacher training under Mark and Raquel in India and cannot recommend the experience more. They created a beautiful and warm learning environment and brought so much energy and enthusiasm to each day. They have very different teaching styles and encouraged individuality and flexibility in our teaching methods which really helped me to develop my own style and approach. Their knowledge on yoga, anatomy, and physiology was expert and they managed to cover an impressive syllabus in the month I was there which gave me great confidence in my own teaching. From a philosophical perspective the course made me challenge a lot of beliefs and assumptions that i would never have thought to question. I left the course as a qualified yoga teacher, fitter than i have ever been and i really believe- a better, happier person.
I was lucky enough to receive teachings by Mark and Raquel during my yoga teacher trainings. With Raquel's warm and gentle heart and marks vast knowledge and experience, they both make the perfect team for a yoga tt experience. Both are approachable and relatable people with a beautiful gift of teaching. I wish them both and Lola the best of luck and full recovery. Namaste
