    I really appreciate all the staff members at the OM retreat and feel very fortunate for being able to be a part of this training. It was an incredible experience!!

  • Brandon Bennett

    This is where I did my yoga teacher training. Words can't fully describe how therapeutic the entire experience was for me. The program in itself, on top of the mountains, culture, ancient ceremonies, and the connections built with the other diverse group yogis, is a time in my life that I will always cherish.

    YTT Ecuador offers an authentic and special experience. All of the trainers and teachers were knowledgeable, helpful, caring, approachable and passionate about yoga. The owner went out of her way to make the experience one that one would never forget. She hired the best and organized fascinating extra activities to enhance our experience. Our main teacher trainer, Adri Kyser, was incredible and was dedicated to training us how to teach proper alignment and effective sequencing all while connecting our students to a spiritual practice. I was hoping to build confidence in my yoga practice, and not only did I achieve that, I ended up having a life-changing experience that opened my mind, body, and heart. I would definitely recommend this program to somebody who is open to growth.

    Receiving my YTT with OM Healing Center was beyond my best expectations. I am now teaching yoga at a university in Riobamba and feeling great about it! thanks to the wonderful staff and program they have. I 100% recommend this course because it is tailored to you, to your future yoga students and doesn¨t just focus on the physical aspect of yoga. Which I absolutely LOVED.

    My 200-hour yoga teacher training with OM Yoga Center was extremely rewarding! Not only did I receive excellent instruction on teaching asanas, I received a well-rounded classical hatha yoga education. The teachers were all excellent, and Maria Elena went out of her way to ensure that each student had a great experience. The schedule was rigorous but manageable, and each weekend we were met with an exciting excursion or activity to "reward" us for all of the hard work during the week. The food was tasty and nutritious, and I greeted each day with eager anticipation of what I was about to learn and experience. And last but not least, the location. Ecuador is, in my humble opinion, one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I just don't believe there could have been anything that could improve this experience. I left a different person than I was when I arrived, with friends for life as an added bonus. I highly recommend this school!

    It's been one short month since I began my yoga journey and I can honestly say that It has already changed my life. All of the crazy, (sometimes 'out-there') health benefits you hear about how yoga changes you are all absolutely true! My husband and I moved to Cuenca, Ecuador about three months ago and I began looking for a form of exercise to replace running, (due to the negative impact running was having on my knees). My mother-in-law recommended me to try yoga. She has avidly practiced yoga for decades and says it's the best form of exercise for the mind, body, and soul. So I said, "why not? I'll give it a shot." Little did I know that I would find something far beyond exercise; an entirely new way of life through yoga.

    When beginning my practice, shortly after deciding to give yoga a go, I found Om Healing Center in Cuenca. The Om Healing Center is a family-run yoga studio that welcomes you with warm smiles and open arms. They have an uncanny way of making you feel like family as soon as you walk through the door. The center provides a fun, accepting, and safe environment to be yourself, and accommodates everyone no matter what level you may be at. I can't say enough good things about this place. After our first class at Om Healing Center, my husband and I quickly decided to buy a one month unlimited membership because we enjoyed it so much. Om Healing Center offers several classes and workshops, including Hatha yoga, Ashtanga yoga, meditation, chakra workshops, yoga for kids, and more and we've thoroughly enjoyed them all!

    Within a month of practicing yoga I have experienced mental clarity; a great way to increase mental clarity is through meditation and exercise. Yoga combines the two to create an excellent clarity in the mind. When we are focused completely on holding balance in a pose the mind becomes sharp and all other thoughts are removed providing clear focus. Before I began yoga, I mainly had strength in my legs and since beginning my yoga practice I've now developed strength in my chest, back, core, and arms. Yoga has also helped me become a more balanced being and now I can hold balance postures such as side planks, tree poses, and headstands. I never thought in a million years I could balance myself on my head. I've not only found physical balance but also balance in my life and thoughts.

    The lessons have helped me to reduce my stress because with more yoga comes less stress. Yoga helps to reduce stress because it promotes relaxation, which is the natural opposite of stress. I describe leaving a yoga studio like leaving a spa. You feel like you just had the best body massage of your life. The flexibility is a big one for me and I know this will be an ongoing journey. I am not that flexible and have especially tight hamstrings but with every class I notice I become more flexible and limber. And finally I have improved my relationship with my husband. I love practicing yoga with my husband. There is something so special about sharing yoga with your loved one. After yoga we feel happy, energetic, confident, and connected as a couple.
