Blessed to be raised vegetarian by her amazing Bhakti yogini mama who encouraged her to truly be her adventurous self, Tessa was exposed to yoga at a very young age, poring over a Swami Vishnudevananda book on her parent’s bookshelf. Infinitely intrigued by the asanas and strange kriyas, she copied Padmasana, full Lotus position and to this day it’s probably so easy because she did it constantly.

"BALI YTT 200 HR "
I really enjoyed getting to know new people and all the students coming together to help on another make it through our training. I enjoyed the training towards the end after the instructors came together to make it a “yogic” environment. I enjoyed trying new foods and the Balinese are super sweet and accommodating! The teachers led really amazing meditations and the spiritual lessons were really cool. The ceremonies were life changing and I really enjoyed getting to know myself more!

"Above expectations, inspiring"
Well thought out, yet flexible program with all three facilitators (Krystalyn, Josephine and Michelle) being so well balanced, delivering endless knowledge, experience and love every day. Loved the location at the magic lake Atitlan and the vegan food of course. This YTT enabled us to practice yoga holistically and meet amazing people along the way. A great start of a beautiful journey.

"Great facilitators, poor materials & terrible accommodations"
The facilitators, the Ayurveda, the 8 limbs of yoga, the aromatherapy, the communication strategies, and the exposure to two distinct sequences
from Germany, October 2017
It was the most amazing time, so many things to discover about yourself, about yoga and people. The scedule and content of the classes are perfect, a good balance of theory and practical input, so many interesting and helpful topics are covered. The daily yoga and meditation practice is great. The location is perfect, tucked away in the ricefields but only 15 minutes walking distance to Ubud Center. The accomodation was great, lovely rooms and them ost amazing food. The techers cared a lot and made the experiece very very spechial.
