"Everything you need to be a great yoga teacher "
First of all, I love the teacher, Amanda Dee very much. She is a talented and very accurate person, with a big heart. The course gives you everything you need to become a good teacher. The course also deepens your understanding of the body's anatomy, how every muscle is connected and how to prevent injury during practice. I would love to recommend this course, and of course, Amanda Dee - you won't regret the choice. Remember yoga is a lifelong practice, why not practice with a good teacher. :)

"Great 5-day retreat"
The location was beautiful, the house was right on the beach. The kitchen was full of all breakfast food and fresh fruit. The two yoga classes in the morning and in the evening were always wonderful, challenging and guaranteed to help you progress. During the day, various activities including hiking, bike riding, city visits and just enjoying the beautiful beaches were possible. Overall, a real treat!

"Perfect five days!"
The location of the house and the views could not be better, the area so quiet and felt very safe. The food supplies were varied and ample and they had thought of everything! The yoga classes and studio were the highlight for me, Amanda’s knowledge is first class and she caters for every single student and can recognise what they individually need from their practice which is pretty special. I left feeling inspired.

I’ve been meaning to write for a while to thank you for an amazing retreat in Spain this past May. The location was beautiful, the food was delicious and the vibe was relaxed and comfortable. I look forward to joining you guys on another retreat soon! It was amazing! Thank you, thank you!

This is the second teacher training I am doing. I already got 400hours YTT but choose to do the first 200 hours again with Amanda. I decided this after I had taken some of her clases and she has not disappointed me. Amanda is certainly a class of her own, I can not compare her to any other teacher trainings, highly recommended. I have learned so much this year and I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to study with such a skilled and wonderful person. Thank you so much.

What can i say about this YTT? Amanda is not just an amazing yoga teacher, she is not just an incredible 'anatomy reader', Amanda makes you come into your body and your spirit so easily, so gracefully that it is absolutely impossible not to fall in love with her teachings. I surrendered to yoga, so deeply, so happily that I cannot imagine how was my life before. And it is Amanda´s fault, for sure. In poetical terms, she has sculpted my body and my soul. I am eternally grateful. I seriously recommend not do this training if you do not want to get (joyfully) obsessed with any little breath or tiny movement of your body ;)

Thank you Amanda for this life changing experience. I fully enjoyed the Yoga Training Course.
Thank you for being so dedicated, so kind, so wonderful. I love your vast knowledge in anatomy and how you explain in great detail the poses. How the postures should be and feel!!! With amazing adjustment techniques and expert verbal cues. The philosophy part has been well integrated with plenty of time to discuss it in group. And of course the setting of the studio and accommodation by the sea has made the whole experience magical!!!

For at least a year, I doubted about investing my money in a Yoga Teacher Training. I have to say it has been the best choice of my life. Having Amanda in Spain is just a present for all her students, and that includes me. I feel my knowledge has raise really high since i have done the training, which is full of physical and anatomical themes. Added to it, you learn loads of yoga techniques, which give a full range of understanding of this wonderful discipline (philosophical and physical aspects). By now, I feel really confident with what I have learnt, and that is thanks to Amanda and the great team that she leads. If you are interested in anatomy of yoga, correct alignment and hands on adjustments, i think Sun Salute is the best place for it. I love yoga, and Amanda has known how to transmit that true love.
In addition to it, the studio is just a few meters to one of the most wonderful beaches in the area, the food is great, made with fresh and local products, and the weather is just stunning all over the year.
