      " Spiritual Yoga School was an amazing experience, it was honestly much more than I imagined it to be. The teachers were brilliant and their years of experience really showed in the classroom. The location, accommodation and meal plans were great. The only issue I had was the payment method which was kind of haphazard but I think they're working that out. " website, edited

      "Spiritual Yoga teacher training was a real life changing experience. I knew that 200 Hrs Yoga training will be very challenging and unforgettable experience and it certainly was. I met people from all over the world and made 12 new friends. It was challenging and demanding on every dimension: body, mind & soul.

      "We joined Yoga Teacher Training because we wanted to get away from every day stress and learn Anatomy. We both believe that it is very important to understand our body and mind. We really loved morning Pranayama because we both had repiratory problems. We highly recommend you to join Yoga TT because you will understand again what is really important in life and how badly can stress effect your health.", edited

      "I like the course overall. I felt that I gained so much knowledge and experience in such a short time. Even if YTT200 is just the beginning I felt confident to start teaching after graduation. Accommodation was fantastic. My group stayed at Moon Beach resort which is run by the loveliest Thai family. Amazing home cooked thai food each night and great accommodation as well. My teacher was amazing. She was filled with knowledge and so excited to share this with her students. She created a safe and fun environment where she encouraged and supported her students through their journey"

    • Review by Carolyn from USA

      " While I valued the mornings with Pranayama and Asana practice, I learned so much about the yoga sutras and how they span every aspect of humanity. I loved that this ignited the start of more learning for me. The location at Vikasa in Koh Samui was inspirational and I felt that I was being holistically taken care of throughout the course.The other yogis that took the training were amazing. It was an open and honest group of learners who supported each other and were committed to learning and growing as yogis. Liza is extremely knowledgable and has a beautiful focus to her practice. Reshma Datar was the wonderful assistant teacher who knows so much of the history and encouraged all of us to shine. Both teachers were dedicated to the growth of the students and helped us to achieve. "
