    "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"

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    "I am very happy that I have chosen Spiritual Yoga School. I loved every minute. Teachers were very professional and helpful. My main teacher was Tomasz, he was able to answer any question I had during my training. Koh Samui is real paradise. It was life changing experience and I believe that every single person on this planet should join Yoga Training."

    "I felt a bit weird at the beginning to be the only man who join Yoga Training but then I enjoyed my stay in Thailand a lot. Training on this beautiful Island was the best gift I could ever give myself J. Teachers were real Yoga experts and I really liked Spiritual Yogas methodology. I cannot wait to join my next 300 Hrs Teacher Training."

    "I flew all the way to Thailand to become Certified Yoga Teacher. I only wanted to get fit and strong but then Yoga tricked me. I started to understand that Yoga positively effects every part of my body and soul. I have learned different types of meditation, breathing and new Asanas. I hope to become successful Yoga Teacher. I dream to open my own Yoga studio in Milano. Thank you !"

    "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. They say yoga is a journey to the self though the self and what a trip this has been. Thank you to all the teachers for your hard work and dedication."

    "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."
