"A Transformative Experience"
I liked most the person I became through this time. The attention of the manager, lovely Mari, the teachers, Roxy and Vir, the kitchen staff, Jose and angel, and the receptionist, Mariana, was unmatched. I felt so cared for, listened to, loved, and respected in every way. The friends I made and the connections created will stay with me my entire life. I certainly believe that I will never be the same after only 21 days. There was a space created there at lulu that was only love. Only acceptance. Only support. I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
from United States, October 2021
Roxy and Virginia were thorough and elaborated on so many aspects of Yoga; and the lagoon location,
practice space and general atmosphere supported a transformative process. When problems did occur, the management was very responsive. Overall, I give this training very high marks!!

"Magical Experience "
This was for sure one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. This is more than a YTT, it’s a community, a family, a safe space for self-development. I immediately felt cared for.
My training was in Bacalar, Mexico at the beautiful lagoon. The accommodation is simple but super natural and pretty. The Yoga Shala is incredible and the food was colorful and very tasty. Lulu La Bruja is like a little family as well, the people are kind and willing to help.
Jessica and Melissa were awesome teachers. They adapted to our rhythm and became our friends. They made the ancient yoga tradition very accessible and I learned so much about yoga, philosophy, spirituality, myself and others. This training also includes Meditation, Kriya, Pranayama, Chakras, Thai Massage... for me the perfect combination. I fell in love with yoga even more and they made me want to do my 300hr as well.
Rakel was also there with us and it was so lovely to spend time with her and learning from her. Thank you for making this possible!
Last but not least, one of the most important parts of this training is definitely Carolina, the manager. She is always there for everyone, caring and loving - there’s no way to not love this wonderful person!
La Casa Shambala and all the people I shared this training with have a special place in my heart now. Thank you for everything!

"Beautiful experience at the lagoon"
The instructors were amazing and I adored their view on what yoga is. They were authentic and were there for help if you needed it. The location was beautiful and calming. The staff was friendly and down to earth. The hostel is 20 minutes walking from town which was nice to be away from the commotion. By the end of the retreat we were all family!
from France, June 2021
Caro, the Host, is Amazing. She is like a mom for everyone. She is into it more than 100%. She gives everything she has for us. I felt protected, loved...
Mica, the teacher gives the keys to open the door to change. He knows his subject. Very intersting Guy and very funny. I loved him!
The food is really good (for french people its very important😉)
You will find a family there. Be ready its an intense expérience. Full of love.

"Excellent value for money "
Super happy to have participated in this low-cost teacher training in Tenerife in May-June 2021 as the value for money was excellent!!! I can only thank Carolina and la Casa Shambala for this wonderful opportunity! Carolina created a wonderful atmosphere and made sure that we had everything that we needed and more! Mica was a great teacher and I learned a lot about yoga postures and alignment. Thank you both! I had a great time, met lots of lovely people and would recommend la Casa Shambala to anyone!

"So much love"
Everything about my experience with La Casa Shambala's TTC in Tenerife was positive. This TTC is so much more than what I expected, Mica and Carolina created a beautiful and safe atmosphere, for us all to go deeper within our practice and ourselves. Mica only teaches from his own experience of yoga, and showed me how a yoga practice is really a yoga lifestyle. Carolina is pure love, giving everybody so much care and time to make sure we are all comfortable. Both such beautiful and authentic souls. What I learnt from this TTC, from the Carol & Mica and from everyone else with us, I will take with me forever. There are no words.

Open and supporting atmosphere that allows to relax and dig deep in to the process of personal development.

I really enjoyed my entire time here being at La Casa Shambala, meeting extraordinary people from all over the world, all here for the same purpose- to learn and grow, sharing our stories and differences and the best thing yet is for it to happen during this Corona Crisis. Magic happens here 💞🤸 This place will always have my heart 🙏 x Linda

"Supportive and integrative experience "
The instructors of La Casa Shambala were amazing. They were knowledgeable, kind, flexible, and compassionate. I received a much better than expected education of yoga—asanas, philosophy, history, pranayama, anatomy, etc. The management team was also great. I found them to be supportive, helpful, and caring. Management went well out of their way to assist me when I needed it. Not only management was supportive, but the volunteers as well. Such an amazing team of individuals that created a great community atmosphere. The location of La Casa Shambala was beautiful, both inside and outside of the property. The property itself is gorgeous and peaceful, and kept clean. The views from the Shala are phenomenal, and the sounds match the view. I loved the waking up to the chatter of the jungle, and the steamy sunrise over the mountains. If anything, I just wish that the beach was closer, as well as access to the main town. But on days off, the beach and town are very accessible.

"A magical place I will never forget ✨"
I had the best time. It is true indeed, a yoga TTC really does change your life. The way you look at the world and yourself shifts and I’ve learned so much this past month. It was all made possible by the incredible staff at La Casa, the food was delicious, the volunteers are amazing, the teachers have been a blessing, their knowledge makes me feel well prepared and ready to start and they truly became friends. I have all the tools I need. The management worked so much to give us difference options for extra activities and the island has so much to offer. The vibe here is incredible ! And above all I’ve found my family here. I’ve found friends for life and I could not be more grateful for that.
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
from Great Britain, September 2019
The teachers on the course had a fountain of knowledge and taught in a way that was constantly engaging and exciting. The managers and volunteers working behind the scenes of the course made everything run super smoothly. All in all a magical experience and a beautiful way to start my journey as an instructor.

"Life-changing experience at La Casa"
Where do I begin? An amazing experience with amazing people. The accommodation was modest and cozy, food was healthy and colourful, the crew + teachers were friendly and supportive. Special shout-out to Mica, he really dug the diamonds out the mud and was sooo generous with his teaching, his time, his knowledge... There are no words really. If you’re lucky enough to study under him, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about at the end of the training. Sara and Joe were super friendly and knowledgeable as well, just great people. The staff + crew at La Shambala were all like-minded individuals who were supportive and super zen. I will miss the view from the yoga deck almost as much as my group of girls! Just grest times.

"Amazing teachers at La Casa Shambala"
The shala is beautiful surrounded by nature, the classes were amazing, the teachers were so lovely and teaches us with all their passion.
The ambiance and the community were very nice, the owner and the volunteers, very friendly and always helpful.
I would go back.

"A beautiful yoga community"
Great food, options to change to order thai if we wanted. The Yoga shala has an amazing view over some mountains. Karen and Jessica were wonderful teachers and Rikel the owner was also very welcoming and really made you feel at home. The best thing I found was that we only had 15 students which allowed us more one on one time with the teachers.

"LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE"
The instruction was excellent. The instructors instilled confidence and provided details in the practical and philosophical aspects of yoga. Individuality was encouraged and respected. The program was well organized. The supporting staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The vegetarian meals were delicious and nutritious . We all became one family by the end of the training and will carry this bond forever.

"18 days of yoga teacher training "
the people, the staff, the environment, the location, the common area, the huts everything! everything is literally; what you see is what you get. super eco-friendly and backpacking style. the teachers were phenomenal. i wish the course was longer so i could learn more from the teachers we had. food was amazing because it was catered from outside. im not vegetarian or vegan but if someone were to cater me vegan/vegetarian food from the same restaurant. i dont mind! it gets really noisy at night as there were many nights that was raining and heavy thunderstorm, so many little creepy crawlies and creatures came running out seeking for shelter. the toads and frogs were extremely loud at night. it was hard to sleep. but i mean, you are literally in the middle of a jungle. it was expected :)

When you arrive at La Casa...you just can feel and see how this place is amazing! The decoration everywhere is fantastic and made with eco materials! The tipies are so cute and very confortable! Food was excellent also. The volonters are doing a very good job too and take completly part of the team. Managers were so kind, helpful, smiling people. We had teachers during this months and all of them were very professional and amazing!
We went 2 or 3 times doing yoga or meditation on the beach which was great! My stay was a success for my all life long...
Many thanks to Raquel to had done this wonderful, human, peaceful place.

La Casa is a wonderful place that got my heart straight away. The lovely people make you a part of the family, the beautiful surroundings make you feel at home immediately. We learned a lot, shared even more. Expect more than just yoga. Community, personal growth and deep connections come naturally. Leaving this place is hard, I will definitely come back as a volunteer one day. Raquel, the owner, created a place that will change you to the better and make you spread this positive energy all around the globe. Highly recommend La Casa ♥️

"Price is good but this place needs more work "
I loved Victoria, who was another teacher we had. Her knowledge was beyond what I expected. She has this amazing energy. Just for her I would recommend this place.
I liked the rooms, which I thought made you really connected to the nature.
I loved the ayurvedic food and they were also nice to make it a change with some thai food as well.
Everyone loved the volunteers. They were so nice.

"More then a simple TTC"
I first thought that I ended up doing my TTC at La Casa Shambala by pure coincidence. I soon realized that there are no coincidence when it comes to the magic of this place.
Be ready to deepen your technical yoga practice and anatomy/biology knowledge, but even more to find openess, grouding, family, emotions, connections, unconditional love, and way more than I can put on words.
This place is like a hidden intimate paradise surrounded by the jungle life (and Funky the magic cat), and you'll find yourself calling it "home" by the end of the month. Our teachers were professionnal and competent as well as compassionate, open and sensible. The owner and the volonteers are part of the group too, which creates a strong community life and feeling.
I am very grateful and I definitly recommand this place to everyone who feels like experiencing something deeply authentic. 🌼
