For Ben, yoga has been a practice that very quickly became a passion and soon after, a way of life. His practice started in 2008 with Iyengar yoga under Joey Mascarenhas in Zurich. Joey’s precise style, teaching, and careful guidance set Ben upon his path. After three years of Iyengar yoga, he felt ready to dive deeper into yoga and become a qualified teacher. Swapping his career in club management for a full-time life on the yoga mat, Ben completed an intensive 500-hour Hatha yoga teacher training in Thailand and began his teaching journey.

Through his first teacher, he continues to transmit the message that spirituality is a joyful journey, filled with passion and the celebration of life. His teaching style is fun and engaging, and he has the ability to explain complex Eastern philosophical concepts in an easy-to-grasp way.

Das Orion ist ein sehr schöner Ort, um einfach zu sein, Yoga zu machen und zu Entgiften. Die YogalehrerInnen, sowie das gesamte Personal, ob an der Rezeption oder im Restaurant sind sehr freundlich uns hilfsbereit.
Ich bin so gestresst angekommen und sehr gechillt gefahren :)
Ich habe das Detox Programm mitgemacht und bin dort sehr gut angeleitet worden. Anschließend habe ich ein Yogaretreat gemacht, auch das hat mir sehr gut gefallen - es gibt eine unglaubliche Auswahl an Yogastunden, ich hatte die Möglichkeit, verschiedene Yogastile auszuprobieren, einfach Klasse.
I have done TTC in Orion and it was one of the best experiences in my life (the other one is Detox Retreat also in Orion!!). Based on Detox retreat I have decided to join TTC and it gave me so much not just for becoming a yoga teacher but in my personal life and more. Ewa and Ben are great techers, I met amazing people, the food there is full of nutrition and love and the island byself is such a wonderful place. I would recommend it to everyone and if I could I would do it again just for the experience! Thanks again:-)

Did my 200hr YTTC with Ewa and Ben last November and it was the experience of a lifetime! If you are thinking of signing up for the course, look no further. I mean, no jokes, you will work hard, but gosh, it will equip you with everything you need to actually teach yoga. Since my course, I've guided a few yoga workshops and small classes and had great responses. Ewa, the main teacher is absolutely incredible; a hurricane if knowledge, assertiveness, and unapologetic discipline, but also of infinite love, kindness and sensitivity. She will capture everyone in her vortex, so stay prepared! The centre itself is so beatuful, right by the sea. The food is incredible and super nutritious. You will live unforgettable memories at Orion, I genuinely cannot wait to go back!!!
Doing my TTC at Orion is one of the best experience of my life! Ewa is an amazing teacher. She is very sensitive, intuitive, ressourceful and wise. Her hands-on corrections are the best. Plus, Orion Center is a little paradise on Earth. If you want to increase your Yoga practice in multiple ways, this is your place to be :)
I've done yoga ttc 200hr with Ewa and It changed my life.
I was able to teach right after my ttc and still I am. Her teaching and insight for many level is so deep. I feel so lucky to meet her as my beginning of teaching journey. Also the food and vibe in Orion is amazingly peaceful. I can not forget the evening with sunset after classes. it was masterpiece. Thank you for the amazing class and warmth, Ewa!
I highly recommend it.
I have visited Orion Healing a year ago for a detox program. I absolutely love our yoga classes there, which inspired me to enroll for Yoga Teaching Course. West of the island, where Orion is located, is just peaceful and calm with beautiful nature. It is said by locals that Orion is the best place for food and yoga. Even if you are not vegan you will love it. Our TTC training changed my life. Ewa and Ben are super teachers they know what they do. They are very inspiring and you will discover a lot about yourself. You will get high quality of food, teachers in a great location. I'll be back next year again.
