"Wonderful experience "
Carmen and Eugen made this yoga teacher training - thank you for sharing your in depth knowledge and time with us. It’s an experience I won’t forget and it’s allowed me to understand that yoga is a way of life rather than just an ‘exercise’ to keep fit and healthy.

That was a fabulous time I had with Sundari Yoga School!! Really the best choice!! The Teachers, Carmen and Eugen of the highest degree- they are not only wonderful, kind people but gracious and patient in their teaching.
The content of the classes, the academic atmosphere were great and in the same time we felt free to ask questions and discuss interesting issues. They share knowledge,love and spiritual wisdom and that created a unique chance for us to start this wonderful journey of self-discovery as a yoga teacher!!Thank you for everything!!!

"One of the best experiences of my life"
Sundari Integral Yoga school became like a family to me for the 21 days on Madeira Island. Carmen and Eugen were so welcoming and caring towards us all, and I always felt I could ask them anything if I was ever feeling unsure.
They both have an incredible wealth of knowledge, and are so passionate about what they do.
They even organised excursions on the days off for us to see the island, and It was absolutely amazing! I truly felt I saw so much of this beautiful place, that I never would have seen otherwise.
I went to learn how to be a yoga teacher, but I left with so much more.
The knowledge taught, helped me see that I always have everything I will ever need in life to feel true happiness, and I can’t wait to teach that knowledge to my future students as well as friends and family.
I will remember this experience for the rest of my life, Thankyou so much for everything Carmen and Eugen, and to everyone else I was able to share this amazing experience with. 😊🙏🏼✨

We were in nature a lot. But when Carmen har doublebooked herself one weekend and couldnt artens class with us, she also did not know what she would ask Eugene to teach us, so we asked if we could be i nature, but that we couldnt. I felt that was very off, that she didnt know what she wanted to teach us, but she knew she didnt want us to be in nature when she knew we loved it, and I asked several times if we could be outside more.

"200h Yoga Teacher Training in Madeira"
Madeira is an amazing island and perfect location for a yoga teacher training. Life is nice and calm there, so I had time to focus on my studies.
It was mostly one to one sessions, so we really focused on the things where I had to improve. And during the evenings I met the yoga community what Carmen and Eugen builded up over the years.
They treated me like their own family for 3weeks, and I got a lot to continue a successful yoga practise.

Ce qui m’a plu le plus, c’est le fait d’avoir ressenti que même si nous suivions le même cours, les professeurs étaient là pour chacun d’entre nous, ils ont prit le temps nécessaire pour nous guider dans les bons moments et les plus difficiles également. Je leur en suis très reconnaissante. Carmen et Eugen ont su réveiller en moi des parties endormies et j’ai pu voir une évolution folle en 3 semaines, ce qui me motive pour continuer !
