      Words wouldn’t enough to express my gratitude for everything I’ve experienced on the YTT at It’s Yoga. Under the guidance and teaching of Teacher Joy, Teacher Ricardo, and Teacher Nui, I faced largely expanding the knowledge of yoga both Philosophy and Asana. I feel so passionate about; the way of life, body and spirit were often challenged, but it was through these challenges I experienced transformational growth.

      Thank you teachers for sharing with me your deep knowledge, hands-on teaching, role by model, and helping to make me a yoga teacher and I commit to dedicate my life to new physical and emotional practices.

      Love.

      This course opens my new vision of study in system. I learnt correctly and more understanding in ‘Yoga’. I had a new attitude and vision. The 3 teachers gave me a lot of knowledge and the classmates are friendly. I am really glad to take the course here. Got a lot of good things. Thank you to the teachers and friends.

    • Kesinee Deesai (Kad)

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      I felt I gained tons of knowledge. The experiences from teachers are a miracle which I thought I might not find anywhere else but here. I know more about myself and others. I felt I got a lot of new knowledge all the time. The most I like about is ‘Teachers’. You taught me to discipline with my practice.

      Love you all teachers!

    • Som

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      I love this course because it provides me everything I need for teaching in the future. Not only that but also the knowledge of mind and awareness. I have seen myself changes externally with fit physical and understand asana and internally the flow of breath, the peace of mind, and attitude which is changed to people around me. I feel more understand other people and myself.

      I more I learnt the more I feel to teach. I feel confident of teach the right thing and safety asana to others. The most challenging is to keep myself strong and be ready to have the teaching from teachers and use the voice properly when teaching.

    • Supharat Siriprapapornchai (Joom)

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      Understand in Ashtanga-Vinyasa clerer which is deferent from what I thought. Big appreciated for teachers teaching and their dedication.

      The change that I have seen in myself is ‘awareness’. I can focus more on my own breathes without anxious of the asana I cannot well perform. As I will be a yoga teacher in the nearest future I feel so lucky that the time and my readiness are met and brought me to take this course. And I will take all your guidance with me to spread to others.

      The challenging I hope to see the change in every day of my practice.

    • Nirapai Samansa (Taen)

      I love all sessions of It’s Yoga YTT. It’s GREAT!!! I notice myself changes so much both physically and mind. Thanks for your guidance.

    • Photjawan Sawatraksa (Khuan)

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      I felt gaining very much knowledge and techniques from here. After graduated I can do self-practice and use it for my career.

    • Nittha (Gop)

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      It has been a good experience. I have been able to understand myself more and more by understanding what yoga really is. I have leant yoga in the way I have never imagined, know more about thing I never realize yoga has taught. I have known how to practice safely and consequence of misunderstanding in asana. I have never seen myself stronger both physically and mentally.

      I am pound of the knowledge I have gain here and very excited to deliver my knowledge and my understanding to others. (Felt very good in the workshop that I was able to answer question and deliver what the right posture / adjustment should be). Lastly, the most challenging this is fighting with me (the laziness inside me) to practice.

      The Teacher Training was amazing. I felt supported through out the course. And all my question have been answered with great knowledge and compassion according to the process the student was going through. Thank you for a powerful learning experience.

      This Training has helped me become stronger physically and mentally. I couldn’t even do half of the tripod headstand before, and thanks to Joy & Ricardo, I am not only can do that but inversions as well! They also helped me understand more about yoga and made me fall even more in love with it. Looking forward to train with them again- Hopefully Rocket Training!

      I am very happy with all the knowledge that the teachers shared with us, all the thing I expected from this Yoga Teacher Training. It was hard to handle the emotional side, and hard to handle some changes in my body (reactions), it was a great experience, I was able to see who I am, there will be things I need to work on, my practice is one of them. Thanks so much Joy, Ricardo, Bri and a special one to Roberto, This Training was a big steep for me, I couldn’t imagine myself learning as many things about myself in three weeks. Love to you all.

    • Kelsey

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      It was a life goal of mine to be able to teach yoga and go through a Yoga Teacher Training. Yoga has been a part of my life for 5 years, and thus I thought it had transformed me already, until I came here. I had no idea what to expect, or how to prepare my mind. In the beginning, it has mentally and physically challenging, when I thought I was very good at yoga before, I didn’t think so then! However, Joy and Ricardo guided us through new practices, taught us how to think, move and most importantly how to be strong and find your inner self. My transformation here was incredible, and one that will come with me for the rest of my life. My body has become healthier and strong. When I first got here I could barely make it through the full Primary Series, and by the end my body craved these practices, and muscle memory of Joy and Ricardo adjustments and pose teaching have improved my practice tremendously. Not only this, but my mentality transformed as well. I used to think there was no way I could get up in front of a class for an hour to teach yoga, but here we went to a bunch of different exercises until it added up. When it was time to teach for and hour I felt so natural and it felt right. What I loved the most, was the people, support and friendship I gained here. The people I’ve met, and our instructors, have changed how I view myself and the world around me in the best possible way. Allow others to be themselves, and then you in turn can be fully yourself. This Teacher Training taught me much more than how to teach a Yoga Class, and will change the way I live my life!

      I never knew that I was capable of so much discipline, so much strength and so much self love. Throughout my Yoga Training I committed myself to growing everyday and I did. Physically I have noticed myself getting stronger in every posture and I now look forward to Chaturanga. Mentally- even when I didn't want to get on the mat, I would. Every time I got to Savasana I was proud of myself for being throughout the practice. I´ve learned so much about Yoga philosophy, anatomy and practice- I feel confident in myself and so proud. Now that I have made it through the training- I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. It has been a journey and doing this training such inspiring individuals has changed my life forever. The most challenging part is getting on the mat when you are fired/ sore, but that is also the most rewarding. I feel like a claimed a mountain and becoming a Yoga Teacher makes me say WAHOO. I am excited to share this amazing practice with the world.

    • Kristina Vidic

      Its Yoga Satellite Website

      Really enjoyed learning and observe myself throughout transformation, The most challenging is switching from being just practitioner to be a Yoga Teacher. Can’t wait to go out and see from outside (when finish) what and how I really Transformed. For now It Feels Amazing.

    • Nattipong Suparonporn

      Its Yoga Satellite Website

      What I enjoyed the most is the self- practice, the knowledge about asanas, anatomy and philosophy as Wheel. The most challenging part for me was how to make the class effective and fun at the same time.

    • Fiona Elizabeth Reid

      Its Yoga Satellite Website

      My journey in Thailand with Its Yoga Satellite was inspirational, rewarding and lot of fun. The teaching was excellent the group was amazing and I feel that I have growth both inside and out. My Yoga knowledge has improved, my body is stronger and my mind is free. I loved doing Yoga every day in Paradise and I can’t wait to start teaching. Namaste.

    • Juno Fitzpatrick United States

      It's Yoga Satellite’s structure of the 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Course grounds students in their self practice, allowing us to feel how our improved understanding of the postures, their sequencing and counter postures greatly improvise our self practice and subsequent ability to communicate the Modified Primary Series as teachers. The courses emphasised the importance of the asana or physical movement within the 8 limbs of Ashtanga, communicating the modified primary sequence as a moving meditation. As a student, this enabled me to understand the connection between movement, breath, gaze and energy locks within the body. Back bending and inversions workshops were a fantastic opportunity to break down more advance postures as a student and teacher. Learning daily exercise to build strength in our shoulders, core, chest and legs drew attention to the connectivity of the body. I now feel well equipped to offer modifications for more complex or advanced postures when teaching. Daily meditation practice was a new experience for me. Joy and Ricardo’s emphasis on the importance of the meditative practice spoke to the essence of yoga- to restrain the modifications or wandering of the mind. The opportunity to try different meditative techniques was a highlight as it gave us the opportunity to realise that, when focussed, everything we experience is an opportunity to learn and reflect. Philosophy lectures on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was a theoretical and historical approach support to our meditation practice. High energy Rocket classes was a fun and challenging element of the course. It really fired up my desire to strengthen my practice and aim to apply for the advanced rocket training in years to come. Balian was a beautiful backdrop away from hectic parts of Bali. Fun swell, consistent waves, fresh coconuts and mellow evening was a bubble of paradise for a group of dedicated yogis and yogis. It would be great if you were able to link me up with Asta Yoga or your friends in San Francisco. Thank you Joy and Ricardo- see you on the next journey around the sun.

    • Sima Kanan United States

      Its Yoga Satellite Website

      I started the course with no expectations whatsoever other than to get a better understanding of the foundations of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. After three weeks I not only feel more confident in my own practice, I also feel that I can go back home and happily teach what I have learnt, in the knowledge that Joy & Ricardo have gave to me, the practice and the theory skills required to deliver a solid, safe and fun Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class. The course was very intense, however Joy & Ricardo took the time to understand each of us and worked hard to help us exceed our potential. This have been one of the most positive, fulfilling experience. Namaste.

    • Rei Yamamura

      Its Yoga Satellite website

      The course was 22 days, thought very long journey at first, but went so fast! I have been practicing, studying yoga for almost 10 years, but attending the 200hr was very interesting. A lot of info was easy to understand with no stress. My Ashtanga Vinyasa practice became deeper, not just physically, but mentally also, its directed me to think more about life, the way of the nature and how my life should be, and of course how to be happy. Becoming a yoga teacher like Joy and Ricardo is a role model. Need to focus and challenge in a positive way is what I need to be focus now. The most challenging in the course was controlling my food intake, because is too delicious and tried to diet, but didnt work out.

    • Lo Yiu Wai

      Its Yoga Satellite website

      The series of practice in the morning really trained my body, some asanas like forearm, headstand and handstand I can do better (with the help of a friend). The classes helped me to know the important of the bandhas and breath and how to use them to hold and control the postures for longer time and with better alignment. I step out of my comfort zone, I gained lot of yoga knowledge and great amount of Sanskrit names, really hard but still fun. I also learnt how to support my friends during the practice, you can know more about the posture when you watch and assist your friends during the yoga sequence. Last, the hardest part for me was learning how to teach, however after the training finished I feel much better.

    • Laura Furman United States

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      At the Teacher Training I developed a foundation for a strong personal practice and learned how to lead students of all different abilities and levels of experience through the essentials of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

      Joy and Ricardo helped us truly to understand and practice the connection between breathing and movement.

    • Renate Ayman Ayoub Egypt

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      I personally enjoyed the training so much, because I’ve learnt a lot that no matter how many videos I watch or books I read I wouldn’t be able to pick up.

      What I liked the most was the addition of the Yoga Philosophy class with Arvin. It helped learn a lot about what yoga is rather than a physical practice. Arvin has a great personality an has his ways of speech to make young people like me want to listen him.

      The most transformation that I witness is in the physical transformation & practice. Combining the asanas with breathing techniques. Inside me is hard to tell now how I’ve transformed, maybe when I’m back to my home town and living my daily life, I will see how did I transform.

      It feels awesome, I honestly don’t want to open a Yoga Studio and make business. I wanna share my practice for free with people. I’ll start with friends, then who knows what will follow next.

      The most challenging was time, I think if the course is a week longer, It would help release the physical pain and the mind will be more ease.

    • Farida Abou El Dahad Egypt

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      When I first came here I really didn’t know what to expect. After the first week I felt like I’ve learnt so much already and was so motivated to keep learning. I love how you guys pushed each and everyone of us to not only improve the asana practice but also get the chance to look within and get to know ourselves better.

      It definitely wasn’t easy, specially the end of the second week and the beginning of third. This was the peak for me. Mentally and Physically. But it was worth it. Thanks for everything.

      I’m proud to be part of It’s Yoga.

    • Karen Chon

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      YTT program was very intensive and challenging but I really enjoyed every minute of it. It’s incredible but I improved my practice more during the 21 days with you guys than I did in the past 3 years of attending group classes. Really appreciate your energy and attention over the past 3 weeks. I recently took some classes at yoga barn and it didn’t take long to realize that I Knew almost everything I needed to know to be a great practitioner and teacher! It was such an amazing feeling! Thank you! :)

      My favorite part was learning about all the asanas in great detail and why we do all the poses we do in that particular sequence then teaching it back to the group. Challenging part was trying to absorb everything so quickly and then being put on the spot to teach it to others. It forced everyone to totally get out of the comfort zone and pushing to be our best self ( to constantly improve) while being present to each moment.

    • Michelle Corbey Denmark

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      This courses been the most insightful experience of my life so far. I came with a regular/dedicated self practice, having done Ashtanga for the past 2 years and I will admit I wondered before coming what the course would bring to my practice? I brought me more than I can put words to. But I will try anyway :-) It has made my practice flow while really understanding the benefits of letting go expectations and though and feeling on my own body – to then see the change. Joy and Ricardo’s in-depth knowledge of not only anatomy; how the individual body moves but also what I as a practitioner need to proceed with my self development. And their own journey and self practice is so strong, admirable and inspiring. I can only encourage people to come and practice and learn from Joy and Ricardo, whatever your level of experience. They have something to offer all and we to them. I do also recommend any student joining to have a bit of self practice experience and knowledge of ashtanga – not that you will not get it from the course, but because I found that you get even more benefit and traction on your own yoga immersion when you from day one can start tapping in their ocean of knowledge.

      Will miss them when back home and also the group of lovely fellow student yogi and yoginis. I know I have found some friends for life here. People who shared and spired my way of thinking. You will learn to feel your body and find your limits here and when tired and sore in the middle of it, remember “pain is just weakness leaving the body.

    • Roxanne Canada

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      Training with Joy and Ricardo was challenging and immensely rewarding! They take you down to the basics so you have a solid foundation for the rest of your practice and never stop encouraging you to try new things or to do your best! I cannot thank them enough for what they have taught me so far, and I cannot wait to put it all together in my practice back home.

    • Agnes Tassy Hungary

      It's Yoga Satellite website

      The 200 HR YTT was a very intense 2 weeks that combined lots of physical exercise and many many hours of knowledge sharing. The training had a good balance between the theoretical/physical/spiritual subjects. Teachers were always well prepared, no time was wasted. There was a good variation between the long working days, we had a lot of fun while working hard.

      I have become better at performing all 3 elements of AVY; the postures, the breathing and dristhi. My knowledge of the history of yoga, the mental and spiritual aspects of yoga has increased considerably. I made good progress with meditation and tried different forms of it.

      I have learned much about how to explain building postures to other people and how to adjust them.

    • Macarena Galleguillos Hart

      Mi experiencia personal del curso se resume en una palabra… transformación. Al comienzo no sabía porque estaba acá, y a medida que los días fueron pasando, me encontré en un viaje hacia mimisma que resultaba ser aveces placentero, aveces doloroso, insoportable, amoroso y todos lo etados de ánimo que se puedan imaginar!! Fui viendo mi ser como nunca y abrazando todos los aspectos de los cuales estoy constituida y trabajando con mis miedos más profundos, enraizados en mi manera de actuar…!! Y solo hacienda posturas de Yoga, nunca en mi vida me permití un espacio como este, ni imagine que existiera, ni que podía suceder… lo que más me gusto del curso fue esta obesrvación interna, como testigo, y la paz y armonía que trae poder ver como va cambiando el estado de ánimo. Los profesores también enseñán a través de su expereincia y permiten que cada uno alcance lo major de si a través de situaciones y herramientas que ellos mismos imparten. Siento que este es el despartar y el comienzo de un largo camino, que se abre ante mis ojos para ser explorado con maxima humildad, plenitude, gozo y sobre todo coraje. Lo más retador fue calmar mi mente durante las prácticas, estoy feliz, aquí y ahora… sigo respirando. Namaste
