At the age of twenty, I started yoga practice under the guidance of an experienced mentor, and at that time yoga was the only way for me to solve my health problems. It is therapeutic approach of yoga that I develop and teach at my seminars and courses. I have studied this great knowledge of yoga from many teachers & traditions, practiced different styles of yoga: Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, Shivananda yoga, also various modern systems of yoga & Chinese healing practices, along with the practice of asanas and pranayama & higher systems of yoga, such as Jnana, Karma and Bhakti. Looking Forward.
Ram was born and brought up in India, immersed in Vedic tradition, with yogic teachings and style of life. He has a deep understanding of the ancient texts, but also pay particular attention to issues such as mistranslations of Sanskrit texts being carried forward for a few centuries, cultural misconceptions from a Western viewpoint. He brings new light and understanding, a compassionate heart, humility, a fresh perspective, humor and a complete understanding of the ancient texts. For this reason, people of many different experience levels and knowledge in these areas come to Ram.

"The best choice "
Yoga teacher training with Yoga Mat School was a great and life changing experience. Daily yoga classes with stunning view, amazing, supportive, respectful people in our group, teachers- beautiful souls, 100 % professional, qualified, always ready to help and share their knowledge and experience. Hotel, facilities, hotel staff are great and I would love to go back there one day. What I really liked, were asanas breakdowns with Nathalie and Josh, step by step we discussed asanas with all cues, adjustments and modifications which is great for own practice and from my perspective crucial for teaching. Teachers paid a lot of attention to injuries and how to avoid them, gave us many advice about teaching. From the first week we were challenged to teach the group which was a bit stressful at the beginning but I am glad we did it and had a chance to get constructive feedback. We also learned about different methods of sequencing, had lectures about yoga philosophy, chakras, mudras, bandas, Ayurveda and much more and I really enjoyed these classes. Bashakti not only gave us theory but also taught us how to combine it with practice. I don’t regret any minute I spent there. I got so much from people, teachers and whole experience and I am truly grateful for that. I believe it’s the beginning of this journey and I am happy I started it with Yoga Mat School. Bashakti, Nathalie, Josh, Bowie, Panita, lovely group- Thank you! Namaste! 🙏 Take care and hope to see you soon!

"Highly Recommended YTT - Best ever!"
This YTT was really a gift for me. Especially noteworthy are the yoga classes with Nathalie and Josh. We practiced the asanas very precisely and in detail, learned everything about their effects, corrections and exact execution. The YTT offers a lot - Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and Yin Yoga.
The hotel and the surroundings are great, the YTT is relaxed, but on a good level, supportive, open and we laughed a lot. Our group was just fantastic. I shared a room, was a bit sceptical at first. But I had a wonderful room mate with whom I got along well. This was my best group experience ever. The youngest was 17 years old. The oldest was 58. And we came together from all over the world. We had a time of acceptance, support, of fun and laughter.
If you are considering booking this YTT. Do not hesitate. I can recommend it 100%. A big thank you to all teachers, to Bashakti, Nathalie, Josh & Bowie. And above all to the group. You are in my heart. LOVE Barbara

"Do not book this YTT"
The accommodations were great. The resort is beautiful. Breakfast buffet was amazing.
from Canada, March 2020
"Life changing experience "
The group of people that we’re doing their YTT 200 hour with me was amazing! Even if some of the teacher had a hard time in English... they tried their best and this is very appreciated! They also hired some assistant teacher because of the size of our group. The size was very interesting because they all had so much life experience to share even if the yoga level of some of us was very different! But the group was a little too big I think 20 is a good number but 26 is too much... All the teaching staff were devoted to make us learn the most from them and Josh was really an amazing person that I hope you will have the chance to meet if you go there in March 2020! Also, in my opinion, I think that for is energy, is excellent explanation and knowledge in alignment and is ease in English Lek should be the head teacher of asana’s! Another great thing we had was the schedule! They moved the half day of wednesday and placed it on Saturday which makes a big difference in your rest to have half a day off plus another full day after! To finish, I can say that I enjoyed the best time of my life and a great thanks to Bashakti, Dimitry, Lek, Bowie, Josh, Nathalie, Nic, Mai/Mild, Panita , all the staff of Banburee Resort and the group that was here with me in February!

" Expectations met, inspired to practice, grow and evolve."
An emphasis was placed on the full meaning of yoga and how to unite the facets of yoga together to teach yoga with the 8 limb path. Without the history/philosophy, the sutras, chakras, wisdom behind intentional sequencing, ...students may as well learn how to teach fitness, bootcamps or pilates. We were intentionally reminded of these facets and challenged to integrate that into our teaching style and sequences throughout. I did not expect to learn every detail of every posture/anatomy in 200 hours over 26 days - so i learned as much as I could from the pre-readings and I plan to continue to learn and grow as a yoga teacher with the foundation from the Yoga Mat. While it certainly was +++physically/mentally intense, this course has given me enough confidence to teach, the inspiration to teach beyond the poses, the wisdom to continue to learn and grow (read books, supplementary videos, trainings, seek feedback my local guru/advisor). Many adult education principles and teaching methods were used.
The daily schedules were met but the huge class size (25) slowed everything down. We taught sun salutations to the group the first week (dipped in a toe), the 2nd week, we each taught the whole group the details, cues, benefits of each asana (this got our whole feet wet), in week 3 & 4, we had to design and teach a 1 hr yoga class (trainees gave us their hearts and souls & did very well). All that plus music/dance, fun, laughter, self-reflection, magnificent yoga ocean-views...
from Switzerland, February 2020
The people working at the resort and for the YogaMatSchool are very friendly and welcoming and create a positive atmosphere. All yoga activities are outside (under a roof after the early morning) which is wonderful since we always have a fresh breeze from the ocean and hear the birds and waves. The rooms are spacious and pretty, worth the money!
The course was more intensive than I anticipated, although the schedule looks easy, it is a lot of workout and lectures within a short time. However, we are getting introduced to Hatha, Yin, a bit of Vinyasa and Poweryoga which allows a good insight into different styles and to understand their differences and elements better. The teachers were approachable so that we could ask specific questions after class or ask for advice for our own needs, for instance in case of injury.
The theory lectures combined history, philosophy and yogic concepts (e.g. chakras) so that we understand the traditional and modern yoga and can implement traditional concepts into a modern class. I appreciated this very much since it is difficult to understand from just reading or googling. We had great conversations and discussions about these concepts and their implementation which is very enriching!
Overall the course is a good introduction to teaching yoga but also shows that this is just the beginning of self-education and training to become a good teacher and yogi.
from Norway, February 2020
"Beyond expectations. "
This was purely a life changing experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
By the end of the course, I was actually surprised how far we came and how much knowledge we gained about all aspects of yoga, not just the asanas but also the history, philosophy, anathomy etc. All the teachers brings different colour to this course with their knowledge, experiences, styles and personalities. They all have their soul and heart in yoga.
Dmitry is very kind, spiritual,
and experienced. He is very good at alignments and able to identify individual needs correctly and offer modifications accordingly.
Lek's humour, self confidence and approach helped me feel safe and secure where I discovered some of my fears and had the chance to challenge myself safely
through mainly power yoga.
Basak really empowered me to come out of my comfort zone to try different things such as chanting and dancing yoga. Her classes really helped us to let go and to gain new perspectives. Classes with Bowie was just amazing and relaxing. Her peaceful and calm nature combined with Yin yoga was so beneficial.
Natalie was also very inspiring and a good role model.
I also enjoyed Panita's sessions out in nature and her laughter. It is also very comforting to know that the teachers will be there to support us in our new journey as teachers if/ when needed.
Hotel service and food was just excellent.
One again big thank you to The Yoga Mat School family for all of your efforts. Namaste 🙏
from Czechia, February 2020
Definitely a month that will stick with me for a while. This course helped me to connect all the dots and grow my yoga practice, but mostly gave me confidence and inspired to start teaching. Very well balanced curriculum, tought by real professionals. Supportive and encouraging atmosphere created helped us all to overcome our barriers.
Shalas just breathtaking, all facing the ocean. Will miss this those morning meditations to the sounds of waves and beautiful sunrises.
Hotel staff is super helpfull and friendly.
Big variety of food for breakfast and slightly too much tofu for lunch and dinner :)
If you ever thought about doing your YTT - this is a place to be!
Thank you Yoga Matt for amazing experience. Miss you all :)

"Karp Kun Karp - Banburee YTT!"
You really cannot get a better bang for your buck with this 200hr YTT course. The hotel and it’s staff are simply amazing. The sweetest and most accommodating people you will ever meet. I have such high regard for Thai people and their culture after this trip. The yoga facilities are pretty awesome as well. We primarily used 2 of the Shalas, one overlooking the water for morning/sunrise meditation and yoga class. And another for late morning/afternoon classes. We had 12 people in our group and it was just the right size group. Not so big that we couldn’t get answers to our questions/concerns.
Tania, the owner of the school had a terrible accident in Nov 2019, resulting in a traumatic head injury and couldn’t lead the course, but Dimitri stepped up in her place and did a fantastic job. Yes, there was a bit of a language barrier as he is a native Russian speaker, but he did his best to make everything clear to us all and won us over with his dedication to teaching. The man leads a true and genuine yogic lifestyle, and can perform any Asana with what seems to be very little effort!
Basha, who essentially lead the course in Tania’s absence, is one of the most pleasant human beings you will ever meet. She is always smiling and happy and taught us about philosophy, chakras, subtle energies. She did an equally amazing job.
Other instructors like Lek, Mai, Panita, Bowie and Natalie were all inspiring and mad the experience one to remember.
from Canada, February 2020
- beautiful location
- amazing views in the shalas (3 shalas)
- could swim or chill out in air con room on breaks
- all meals included. Usually quite good. Breakfast is amazing and huge. Most lunches are good, some dinners are hit or miss. Tofu at most meals.
-dimitri -main teacher is amazing. Provides great information on safety, scoliosis and how to avoid damage in many postures. Main style of teaching is hatha. (Every other day for 2 hours in the morning- 3 times a week)
- lek- also a great energizing teacher. (6 classes - 2 hours each)
- amazing meditation experience with dimitri’s band.
- after the first week, we all provided feedback and they worked to make adjustments based on our feedback!
- really nice accommodation- couldn’t be a better resort for a yoga teacher training.
- even-though we didn’t have Tania, they did try and give us many teachers to learn off of. Therefore, if we didn’t like some... we usually all had a few we liked!
-check out the Sunday night market.
-Bashakati really pours her heart out into all of the requests made by the group. Loved the info on constitutional dosha.
-there are some limitations to this course but it is hard to find a more cost effective course in such a beautiful location with all meals included. If you can afford it -get your own room!!!
-also loved the live music at night!

"Some room for improvement"
The location couldn't have been better, the tranquil Banburee resort in the beautiful surroundings and the friendly staff really contributed to making the experience enjoyable. The course had a good and relaxed atmosphere, our group was great and there was a nice variety of teachers, all of them really nice and friendly. Most parts mentioned in the course description were covered.
from Colombia, January 2020
This month was life changing for me. I learned so much about who i am and who i want to be as a teacher.
Every teacher gave their own personal input and shared their knowledge with the group and not only did i learn more than i expected, but we also had a lot of fun.
The teachers were very supportive, were always there for us and made sure everyone felt safe and confident enough to teach at the end of the course and gave everyone the space they needed.
I loved the variation in yoga classes and lectures which were given in the beautiful yoga shalas that the Banburee resort has to offer.
The Banburee resort is an amazing place to stay during this YTT. The pool, rooms, beach, food and staff made my stay even more magical.
I didn’t want to leave this place and all the friends we made, so i really hope to come back for my 300hr YTT this year and continue the process of developing myself not only as a teacher but also as a person.
Thanks again! ❤️

"Sometimes too easygoing"
The resort is awesome, the hotel staff is incredible, the breakfast buffet was great but dinner and lunch was not good and not what the body needs when practicing 5hours of asanas a day.
The teachers were really nice and professional. I've learned a lot from them and met many beautiful people from all over the world. Overall it was a good experience but there are some things that need to be improved.
from Germany, December 2019
"Amazing training in paradise"
I was searching for a suitable training for a long time: I wanted a down to earth training, un-dogmatic, with teachers who are not playing a guru-role, but still have a realistic connection to the modern world. Teachers who see more in yoga than simply asanas & acrobatics, but in fact a holistic system that is timeless and universal. Tanias Yoga Mat School resembles that in a genuine way and I am grateful that life has brought me here. The team of teachers resemble a colourful mix of different styles- as yoga in today's life is. I like the fact that there are many different teachers who all have their unique flair and bring in their atmosphere and styles: From classical Hatha classes, sometimes with a musical/dance flavour, classes on key muscles such as core, classes with focus on in depth alignment, vinyasa flow, yin, kundalini, iyengar style, using props correctly, partner yoga.. to name but a few😊. A big thank you to Tania, Bashakti, Dimitri, Lek, Panita, Bowie and the guest teacher Prie ♥️🙏🏼. I have learnt a lot and return with lots of inspirational ideas to teach in the future 😊 and to share this knowledge.
Accommodation is super comfortable in a luxury resort with pool in a tranquil setting.
I hope to come back in March to learn more from Tania and her team, thanks for everything♥️.

"Great choice and wonderful experience "
The resort was beautiful, trainers nice, food excellent. The value is great. Schedule for 1.5 days off is perfect.
from Canada, December 2019
Well we had uncontrollable circumstances with tanya not being there ( may you get well soon). I would have liked more of a structure to the program like schedules ahead of time it's all felt sort of done and planned day by day. I feel like in any school there should be a curriculum that is followed and somewhat a little flexible but not to this point. I enjoyed very much bashakti, miri ( thanks for stepping in), dimi, panita and lek they were great teachers each with unique styles and teaching techniques. I wish our manual was better and more time had been put on it. The printing was kid of all over the place. The food at resort was really not good. Except breakfast. There was no real welcome to the resort. Rhe students themselves got together. The room arrangements were not thought out properly issues with personality clashes and age gaps. The questionnaire we get at beginning should have more questions example: do you drink? Do you smoke? Are you a night owl? The room sharing should have better been done. All in all I learned a lot. We had beautiful kind teachers who really did their best considering. For my first training was fine. I'm.not sure I would recommend it to my friends as it lacked a little structure not necessarily quality of teaching. But again we had uncontrollable circumstances.
Thank you to everyone the staff at Banbury was fabulous. And so were our teachers

This is a lovely family. We are together for sharing yoga and love. We respect each other although we are from different countries and have different cultures. All the teachers try their best to educate and help us. The environment is amazing. After this training, all I want to do is passing this love to more people.

"A place to grow, connect and balance "
I’m truly grateful that I’ve chosen the Yoga Mat School for my 200h YTT. No place I’d rather have done my certificate.
Our teachers were teaching by heart, thank you for inspiring me in so many different ways. The resort is beautiful, the staff absolutely caring and always open for any request you may have. They offer free shuttles to the closest city, which is a wonderful add-on. The Shalas are filled with positiv energy and so much yogic heart.
While talking about it I already miss it.
Thank you again and I’ll see you soon.
So much love and Namasté xxx

"BOOK THIS TEACHER TRAINING!"
Lovely group of teachers. So accomodating, and friendly. I have a new family with this school. Went above and beyond for all of us, inside and outside of school hours. Planned excursions and helped us out with local advice and food. Brought us fresh fruit regularly and accomodated all our of diets. Extensive course and they tried to fit so much in for us. Will never forget this month and have a home for life on koh samui.

Every moning was So beautiful and gave me a lot of inspiring and enegy and refreshment.
I felt that i was blessed. 🙏
from Great Britain, July 2019
From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt nothing but welcomed, looked after, encouraged and loved from everyone! First off the Hotel staff are the kindest, most considerate and eager to please staff I have ever come across. They do everything they can to make your stay effortless and enjoyable. The chefs are hardworking and try to please everybody in any little way. The cleaning staff were angels taking care off our rooms everyday at any time that suited us! The resort is beautiful with a sea view, amazing pool, and perfect rooftop and shala looking out to the sea where we practised yoga everyday. As for the instruction we received for the 200hour teacher training I found every aspect flowed effortlessly I can only imagine how much organisation it took behind the scenes but you wouldn’t know as the instructors themselves where so relaxed but professional, they are an absolute credit to the yoga mat and a fantastic team. I felt so lucky to have All of the combined knowledge and experience from everyone there. I would 100% recommend!!!

"Once in a lifetime experience "
I was very pleased with the Yoga Mat instructors and the curriculum of the training course. The instructors were knowledgeable and provided all the tools we needed to complete the training. We had such a nice variety of instructors and styles of yoga to learn about and challenge us. The facility was nicer than I expected and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The food was very good and the kitchen staff was always willing to accommodate those with dietary restrictions. The breakfast buffet was amazing but it would have been nice to have more than one option at lunch and dinner. The resort accommodations were better than I expected and I was very comfortable during my stay. I couldn’t be happier about my decision to attend The Yoga Mat School in Koh Samui. It’s an experience I will never forget!
from Great Britain, June 2019
"Everything I had hoped for and more "
This course really did exceed any expectations or hopes that I had for a yoga teacher training. I entered the course unsure if I wanted to teach but wanting a deeper understanding of my own practise, however through the well structured programme and multiple opportunities to practice our yoga teaching skills in a supportive environment Not only have I deepened my practise but I feel well equipped to teach if I choose too. The course was well structured yet flexible to accommodate the needs/levels of each student. Both the yoga and philosophy classes were perfect, Tania’s knowledge and passion is inspiring. We were very lucky to be able to work with a variety of amazing teachers over the course, each specialists in different areas of yoga. I left with a stronger mind body and soul and all the tools I feel I need to continue my yoga journey. All that I could have hoped for and more 😊

"Best Thing I Could Have Done for My Mind, Body and Soul. "
I just returned home last night from The Banburee and my 200 hour YTT at the Yoga Mat in Koh Samui - run by Tania Winstanley. I am stronger and more capable than I was before I left for the training. The yoga instruction was perfect and well structured. The Yoga philosophy lectures were wonderful. Tania really knows how to put together a dynamic and knowledgeable staff. Panita, Shiva, Edit, Alex, Bowie and Nicholas were fantastic! All of the guest teachers and lecturers were great too! If you have been contemplating doing this for yourself - don't hesitate, just sign up and get over to Koh Samui. You will not regret it.
from Thailand, March 2019
Whether you’re a complete beginner to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, you’ll find the experience with The Yoga Mat School to be inclusive, transformative and fun. Some of my fellow classmates were there to deepen their own personal practice, while others wanted to start teaching yoga immediately upon graduating from the course. In hindsight, I felt a little naive going into the entire experience, as I wasn’t expecting to feel such an expansive spectrum of emotions. You will feel challenged and pushed outside of your comfort zone, yet completely supported — you truly get out of the experience what you put into it. I feel very fortunate to have undergone my yoga teacher training alongside some amazing, like-minded individuals and I look forward to seeing how each graduate will contribute to the yoga community in their own special way. Each of us graduated from the course feeling inspired and confident in our abilities to teach and for that, I’m incredibly grateful to have worked with Tania and her team.

"I had the time of my life."
I felt nervous about booking this in all honestly, because with all the selection we have, how do we know we are making the right choice? I decided to go for it, and made that click! Tania reached out to me right away, making me feel much more at ease with my decision. As the day to leave for Thailand approached, I started emailing questions regularly about what to bring, where I would be staying, and I always received a warm hearted welcoming email. The first time I met Tania and Lizza at the resort, I immediately felt at home with their spirits. Every teacher I had on my training was a 10/10 in experience, knowledge, kindness, and professionalism.
The accommodation was unbelievable. Absolutely perfect. The resort was beautiful, with a stunning view for us to enjoy during our yoga practice every day. Amazing food! I never got sick of it! The staff were amazing. Always wanted to help, with a smile on their faces. I would love to go back!
It was a group full of magical people. The program was intensive and well rounded. I cannot reccomend enough! If youre thinking about booking, do it!
from United States, November 2018
This was a truly amazing experience. Highly recommended🤩 I felt safe and comfortable. Made great friends. Learned lots starting from a beginner in yoga. Tania is great! I went in October- weather was nice, plenty sunny days. Make sure you book a few extra days on your plane ticket so you can see more of Thailand- it’s safe to travel alone.

"Amazing course, highly knowledgeable team, paradise location"
Tania is a truly gifted yoga teacher who pours her heart and soul into her work. Her energy and enthusiasm for yoga really go beyond the ordinary. She inspires, instills confidence and leads her students through an incredible journey of believing in themselves and achieving the levels of greatness they never thought possible or incapable of, just a few weeks before.
Ram brought the weighty scholarly substance to the theoretical basis of understanding yoga as a thousand years old tradition that has been studied by generations of yogis in India and eventually in the West. His in-depth, multi-faceted learning and understanding of the ancient vedic texts in their original Sanskrit language and sharing that knowledge with us has been a great gift and an eye-opening experience for all of us in the program.
This training took place on the beautiful Ko Samui, and the island is known for its really strong yogic culture. It was felt everywhere we went. There is really a lot to do and see there. We stayed in a fantastic yoga hotel on the beach and enjoyed morning yoga classes by the tropical waterfalls or on the beach itself. The food was fresh and delicious.
Overall, to say that this was a life-changing experience would probably be an understatement. Everyone whom I met on this one-month journey of self-discovery, would be a person I'd remember for the rest of my life.
Thank you again to all of you.
Tania, Lizza, Ram, Dima and everyone at Satva!
Best of luck in the future!

"Life changing experience!! "
Loved the energy of the teachers, specially with Tania. She gives her heart and soul to this training. After these 25 days in this beautiful island not only I feel confident enough to go out and teach, but I also feel stronger and healthier, both physically and mentally :) From the first week you'll be practicing teaching each other so when the course comes to an end you feel fully prepared to teach a class in real life.
Yoga philosophy classes with Ram were incredibly mind opening as well. This training provides not only important knowledge on proper and safe asana practice, but it is a great immersion to the Easter yogic lifestyle overall.
Furthermore, Koh Samui is an incredibly beautiful island with sunny tropical weather and you are always surrounded by nature and the sounds of birds and other animals. The energy of this place is special and perfect for the training :)
Tania and Lizza make you feel like at home and cared after from day one.
As I said, life changing experience!

"Wonderful experience - I would 100% do it again"
I'm very happy that I did my yoga teacher training with Tania. Tania is a role model for me: she lives what she teaches - and teaches what she lives.She is Yoga ;-) Her co-trainers are just as great. The documents are very extensive, over 500 pages. We had the opportunity to teach yoga right from the beginning and made great progress with it. Tania was very responsive to our requests and organized additional yoga classes at 2 levels. The hotel area is very nice and the staff is extremely friendly. We had upgraded and stayed in a beautiful villa with breathtaking views.Even though at the beginning I had little yoga experience but thanks to Tania and her team, it was a wonderful experience for me and my wife. Thank you very much. I can wholeheartedly recommend this yoga education.

"So happy that I've chosen this particular YTT"
The most positive experience for me was the diversity and quality of the physical Yoga classes as well as the in dept education by Ram. Tania created a program tailored to our group members' abilities and interests. Tania has a lot of experience and knowledge and truly loves sharing her gift. I have learned so much during this TYY - couldn't have asked for more. I am still so grateful - thank you Ram and Tania!
