"Selena's teacher training is an unparalleled experience"
I cannot recommend Selena and her team more. Selena is not only unbelievably experienced but she is a lifelong student herself - always seeking new information and best practices. Her dedication to her students is remarkable. I went into the intensive expecting to learn how to instruct a yoga class, and I came out with so much more. It's almost indescribable. The training Selena provides is one that shows you the true meaning of yoga and how you can harness the power of the tradition to live your life to its fullest potential and help others do the same. I cannot wait to learn more from Selena - she is a fountain of knowledge, guidance and support, and I consider myself lucky to call her my teacher. On top of that, the unique opportunity to study at the Ewam Garden was one filled with experiences I will never forget and people I will cherish forever!

When I embarked on the retreat, I expected to learn about yoga and come back with the skills needed to teach an effective class. Selena, who lead the bulk of the trainings, and the two experts she brought in to assist in their specialized areas, were amazing. Their knowledge and delivery far surpassed my expectation. The sense of community that was built among those in the program was unbelievable and made the training more effective. This experience was transformative and I feel like I left not only as a qualified teacher but a more well-rounded individual. The food was excellent. The staff at Cafe Playa Negra treated us like family and the cabina was a fantastic accommodation.
