"Incredibly special training"
Let’s start with Tina- what a loving, devoted yogi. I felt so blessed to be led by someone who cares so much for her students and the yoga. She was tender when she needed to be and showed discernment when issues arose. I know we as a group each improved our own practice and learned so much thanks to her. The location is this secluded adorable village among the mountains. The house was incredibly clean and well looked after and the studio was cozy and wonderful. We came at a perfect time of year as it was not too hot or cold and so the studio stayed relatively comfortable as we worked. The format is relaxed and not overwhelming. We each got to teach classes, get in personal practice and study each day without feeling terribly overworked or pressured. It was a beautiful experience and honestly the bond we made to each was the most incredible part for me. It’s amazing how much love you can draw into your life in only 3 weeks. I’m so incredibly glad I did it with TK Yoga.

"Wonderful Experience! "
The location of this training is phenomenal! Surrounded by nature and mountains and amazing like-minded people!
The curriculum is thoughtful and there is time for your personal practice and opportunities to student teach. From day one, Tina tells you to step into the role of the teacher. You learn to teach by teaching not just by being a student and this allows you to leave the program with confidence!

"Amazing 3 weeks!!"
Everything was perfect - the village and nature around, the house and the garden, the studio I totally love it, the food and the arrangement of the rooms.
But more than everything and actually the most important part for me was the quality of the teaching. Tina is an amazing teacher, knowledgeable and devoted yogi and real inspiration for all of us!
Thank you 🙏❤

"Une très belle expérience qui m'a permis de progresser "
Pendant cette première retraite de yoga j'ai passé de très beaux moments qui resteront inoubliables. Tina a su gérer l'entière formation toute seule juste avec quelque petite aide et je n'ai jamais eu besoin de réclamer quelque chose. Elle a fait un super boulot et je lui en serai toujours très reconnaissante.
Les journées étaient rythmées par des séances matinales de "free pratique" exécutées à jeun. Dans la matinée on enchainé avec des cours théoriques ou pratiques (parfois en mélangeant les deux cotés aussi). On a pu aussi tester nos habilités de prof les uns les autres plusieurs fois, sans négliger le temps libre que Tina nous laissait pour découvrir les magnifiques alentours.
Grâce à cette retraite j'ai pu progresser énormément avec ma pratique, j'ai pu apprendre à m'écouter encore plus, à écouter mon corps et mes ressentis et aussi à retrouver l'envie d'approfondir plein de sujets théoriques et différents, tout en suivant un rythme de vie sain et régulier en terme d'horaires et d'activités.
Je pense que Tina a su démontrer d'être une prof très à l'écoute, capable de modeler les séances et les journées selon les yogis qui étaient là. Elle était là tout en nous laissant nos espaces, toujours.
Après cette expérience je me suis rendue compte d'avoir découvert que la point de l'iceberg et plein des sujets me restent à découvrir !
Un grand merci Tina pour cette opportunité, j'ai passé une excellente séjour déconnectée du monde dans un endroit simplement paradisiaque !

"Une des plus belles expériences de ma vie"
Je suis ressorti de cette retraite transformé. Tina est une excellente professeur. Toujours très attentionnée, gentille et accueillante. Bien que Française et ne comprenant pas très bien l'anglais ( du moins au début) je ne me suis jamais senti à l'écart. Tina m'a aidé à approfondir ma pratique et à me surpasser. J'ai vraiment beaucoup appris à ses côtés. Le lieux et charmant, avec de très jolie balades à faire, à pied ou à cheval. Je recommande sans hésiter TK Yoga. Encore merci à Tina !

Tina is an intuitive teacher who teaches us how to become a yoga teacher by subtracting from our comfort zone. Mike is generous and has prepared us delicious meals and during free time has led us to wonderful places to visit. The place is beautiful and everything is conducive to relaxation and letting go. I felt confident and safe and 3 weeks went by very fast. I am happy to have experienced this training in this beautiful place with these great people. The friendships created with the other students are also very strong. Thanks again for everything.

"It went too quick!!!"
Every thing was perfect. I felt very much at ease with Tina. Our group was so nice to work with. Tina turned us into a little family and it made the learning so much more easy.

"If you seek extraordinary, here it is. <3"
This is an organically fluid, precise and deeply individual training for those who would like to learn what Hatha yoga is truly about from two Masters. Yoga is a healing system for the body, anybody and this training is an intense process to self alignment.
The accommodation is absolutely breathtaking and the abundantly supplied, beautiful plant based, home cooked food is just peachy!
The Divine go to a lot of trouble to put people together at certain times for specific reasons and it never ceases to shock and amaze me! If you seek extraordinary, here it is.

Doing the course online was a worry of mine but TK made the online process feel at ease and made it feel like we were all together. They were full of great information and very supportive

"Relaxed, cozy atmosphere"
Price, lessons, teacher, food , all of my yogi mates!
++ Curriculum is not 100% same as here but still have a lot of things to learn.
Lessons are not fixed on schedule but they'll accept your request as much as they can!++
For instance, there are no schedule for Headstand but we've been learned :)
You don't have to dissapointed. There are so much things to do and you'll be enjoyed*
2 weeks are quite short if you really want to learn something. But Tina&Keely give you a lot of opportunity if you willing to learn.
Have fun yogis and thank you all teachers& my yogi friends.
Best regards, Namaste.

"I loved every minute of my stay in St Gervais sur Mer"
I had no pre-conceived ideas about what a Yoga Retreat would be like, however, from the moment Mick picked us up in Palavas Les Flots, about an hour and a half from the Yoga Retreat, I felt at home. Tina's place is lovely, she was our Instructor for the whole week. I really liked having the same person each day. I had a lovely room in the main house. The food was excellent and plentiful, and although I am not a vegetarian, I really enjoyed the range and quality of the food, provided each day by Mick. We were 7 ladies from various parts of the world, who gelled very well together as a Group who went on walks. We had a memorable time one morning in a Tea Shop in a local town, where Tina & Mick brought us one morning to sample the local market. Mealtimes were fun, with great chats. We set up our own wahtsap group to keep in touch with each other. Mick was a great 'go to' person to get ideas of nice walks in the area which is beautiful, in the foothills of the Massif Central range of mountains. The Tourist Office lends bikes, at no charge. Beautiful relaxing massages were also available. There is a really nice outdoor swimming pool, which was a relaxing place to sit in the sun and listen to nature or read a book. Good Wifi . We were asked at the start to have an intention, 'our Heart's Desire' and a pose we would like to achieve......I had an ambition to be able to do a Half Grasshopper pose by the time I left.......and I did it! Couples was GREAT. I WILL BE BACK

"A wonderful yoga experience"
Thiswas one of the best holiday week s l ever experienced. Set in a beautiful location, Tina provides a fantastic, interesting and enjoyable week of yoga instruction, dealing with many different student abilities with great personal guidance and support, couldn't have been better, highly recommended

"More than I could have dreamed!"
I had such a lovely experience. So much respect for Tina's ability to meet everyone exactly where they were in their yoga practice. Thoroughly enjoyed the meditation and the space we did yoga in.
The meals were delicious and thanks to the lovely group of folk I was with, I got to enjoy cycling, hiking, swimming as well as yoga.
Lastly, big thank you to Tina for going out of her way to make sure we got to go horse riding! I will never forget that afternoon and looking out across the pyrenees on the horses :)

"Total relaxation. "
Tina worked very hard to ensure that I achieved a level on yoga I had not expected to reach. Her encouragement and praise even at this age of my life was such that I had the confidence to push myself.

"More than I expected"
Tina is a great teacher. She teaches the finesses of yoga, and, I guess even more important, She teaches about generall health and well being. Together with Mick, the great cook, they put together a great atmosphere where you can rest, relax, have fun and grow!

"Yoga Retreat in a beautiful area of France "
Tina and Keely were both fantastic Yoga instructors. They each have their own unique styles. I thoroughly enjoyed the way that Tina incorporated her knowledge of other healing modalities into the week. The food was very well done and the group was a nice balance of ages and experiences. I loved the partner yoga session and the healing session. I also really enjoyed the evening yoga session. The yoga room was made to look magical with candles and low lighting.

"A mixed experience"
Tina, we truly want you to thrive and give your gift to the world and very much enjoyed and appreciated your yoga teaching, the food and super-clean accommodation :-) Also the environment, although the way you manage the heat in your home meant it got unnecessarily hot in the dining area.

"Une retraite très agréable. "
Tout d'abord, le lieu, à côté d'un petit village entouré de verdure. Les professeurs, vraiment pro, bienveillantes et souples par rapport aux horaires. Les repas, très bons et sains avec toujours des petites attentions. Pour finir, l'ambiance cosmopolite, le mélange des nationalités.

"basic training, delivered with broad brushstroke"
My accomodation, (I didn't stay at the shared house) was great with lovely food.

"Simply amazing! <3"
Where to start? Tina and Keely are simply the Best possible teachers, the food was beyond expectations and the accommodation was cozy and comfortable.
It’s hard to put it in words when you have had an experience that in so many ways have exceeded your imagination. I arrived thinking that I’d attend a course hopefully resulting in a certificate and leave with so much more. Tina and Keely bring everything to a personal level and teach you how to be the best individual teacher and how to stay true to yourself in the process.
All of this whilst making beautiful friendships for life in the group that was put together.
Would recommend this course to anyone and everyone and we will all return to Tina and Keely’s studios in England and in France❤️

" Expérience décevante"
1) Une pratique et un style de yoga agréable, mais les cours n’ont pas tous eu lieu comme prévu. Au 3e cours, il y a eu trop peu de guidage mais beaucoup d’improvisation libre. Les soins kaina n’ont pas eu lieu. Ce qui est annoncé n’est pas forcément tenu.
2) Les repas sont simples et nourrissants ; pour réduire le prix, on renonce aux produits bio et équitables.
3) L’hébergement est simple, propre et correct dans la maison ; attention aux fortes chaleurs dans la salle de séjour/ la salle à manger qui ne sont pas aérés pourtant les nuits d’été sont fraîches dans la région et peuvent baisser les températures intérieures. Dans les petits bâtiments charmants annexe, probablement des anciens étables, le logement est aussi agréable et bien équipé.
