"#1 experience of my life"
I knew my time at Kindred Spirits was going to be special, maybe even life-changing, but I was not prepared for how incredible it actually turned out to be. I truly loved everything about being in Costa Rica and the whole YTT 200 hours. The best parts of the experience would have to be the jungle, the people, and the food! Combining all these things together created a magical environment for exploring yoga.
Terry, Johanna and Lexi have really created something special here. I see all the love and effort they put into creating a meaningful and fun experience for a group of people coming with different backgrounds, motivations, and expectations. It is not easy, yet they do a fabulous job. I am definitely going to be recommending Kindred Spirits to all my yoga-loving, horse-loving, and life-loving friends and family for years to come.

"I am so pleased with my experience here, unforgettable."
My experience at this yoga school was better than I could have imagined. The teachers were immaculate and so gentle and kind and clearly practicing yogis for years. They handled challenges with grace and compassion and I learned so much. The food was unreal delicious. I have been vegan for years and every meal was sooo good. Maybe some getting used to if a person eats meat or processed foods everyday. But it was all healthy and fresh and homemade with love. I loved the accommodation as well. It is in the jungle, so it feels very much like living with the nature and in the nature. I loved all the amazing creatures we would see every day. Yes there are bugs, this is not a 5 star resort and no pesticides either :) don’t expect that, that is not the jungle. Jungle is living in harmony with the nature and accepting us as apart of it and I really felt that here. So beautiful. You can only get as much as you want to take from this course so use your days wisely and really listen to these teachings, they are so impactful and important lessons for the yogic path. I loved it here.

"Beautiful experience in the jungle!"
I'm very happy I came here for my 200 hour YTT! Costa Rica has had a very special place in my heart since the first time I visited and this visit only deepened that feeling. Terry and Johanna are amazing woman who truly love what they do and learning from them was an absolute blessing. I am so grateful for the knowledge I gained, the relationships I cultivated and the growth that has happened within myself. Thank you so much Kindred Spirits and I look forward to seeing again.

"Unforgettable experience, 100% recommended !"
Life changing experience, I would definitely recommend this beautiful place to start with yoga trainings. The program was very intense and well organized. The main teacher Terry Newton was an incredible teacher, sharing her knowledge with dedication, attention and comprehension. The assistant teacher Joanna was a great teacher as well, practising with us with a lot of patience and incredible spirit.
We had a wide range of books available there, so we could borrow them and read during our free time. Great references of websites, professional job opportunities, yoga teaching resources, books.
The food was INCREDIBLY delicious, fresh and healthy.
The size of the group of students was small so the attention was very personal and in case of any question or doubt there was always the opportunity to receive the feedback.
I could not imagine better place to do YTT 200h, the beauty of the surroundings, the jungle, horses, the abundance of the nature was like a dream.
Finalizing the course, I feel inspired, motivated and ready to start my journey as a Yoga teacher.
Namaste Kindred Spirits :)

"Une bonne formation pour les débutants "
Le lieu est magnifique au milieu de la jungle. Le Shala donne sur la jungle et est idéale pour la pratique du yoga.
Terry est accueillante et les logements sont bien.
