  • Review by Sophie Serex from Geneva,Switzerland

    "I loved everything about this yoga teacher training,the teachers were amazing and all had something different to teach us with their own approach.The training is very well organized and the curriculum very complete, covering many aspects of yoga and even more. We as students get lots of practice to feel confident to teach to the world once the training is completed. Having days off in between even though it was an intensive training is a nice break and allows for strengthening the bond with out fellow student yogis. The location was perfect, in nature, away from urban hustle and bustle, an ideal place to really immerse deeply into the training. I would do it all over again, I feel like I really learnt a lot during this month ad the whole experience exceeded widely all my expectations. Thank you Tribe! "

  • Review by Jasmine Gadie from USA

    "My time at Tribe Yoga will forever be significant in my life. Like so many, my journey to yoga came as a way to save myself from becoming a lost soul. As an expat living abroad in South Korea, I lost both of my parents to heart failure and cancer within a 13 month period. Feeling as though I had lost everything, I fell into a crippling depression that nearly destroyed me. Practicing yoga and meditation was recommended to me by a friend as a way to reclaim and re-center myself. After several months of practice on my own, I could see change blossoming and a part of me emerging that I had not known before. I wanted to learn the deeper aspects of yoga and how this knowledge could greater shape my life. I came to Tribe Yoga with a sincere passion to ignite myself and flourish. Not only had I awakened a sleeping yogini within, but I came away with deeper love for myself, serenity of life, compassion in the world, a connection of the mind-body-soul, and loving friendships. All of my moments spent in the company of such amazing teachers, practitioners, spiritual seekers, and healers have elevated my personal practice to amazing heights. My journey is never ending and I revel in each day spent living and breathing yoga. I humbly thank my Tribe Yoga teachers and follow trainees for their gift of a love and light."

  • Review by Trent Banyan from Australia

    "Since my 200-hour teacher training with Tribe Yoga in January 2013, I have consistently had a daily practice, incorporating it into every aspect of my life. I managed to get a general class at the yoga studio I attend called New Farm Power Yoga. This was a great honor for me as I idolize my teachers there. The trickle effect began, and I had a trial for a 90-minute Power Vinyasa class at another well-established yoga studio named Fusion Hot Yoga. After the class, I received a phone call to say that they were offering me two classes on a weekly basis. Since then I got offered another two classes at Active Life where I lead a 60-minute general class followed by a 90-minute Power Vinyasa flow. I now have six regular weekly classes at great places, but the one I love the most is the one where I lead a class at a beautiful park near my house under the fig tree and the energy of the sun. After a 60-minute asana practice, I teach my students techniques in pranayama and meditation. I can’t thank Tribe Yoga enough for the fantastic training I was provided. My yoga journey continually grows and my whole life feels in line with what the universe has in stalled for me. My classes are a credit to the teachings of the whole Tribe Yoga team and the countless gifts the other students on the course passed on to me! I am blessed to be a yoga teacher."

  • Review by Michelle from Lancashire, United Kingdom

    "Having attended Tribe Yoga three week intensive course in Goa, I had expectations of leaving feeling lighter, inspired, and excited to pass this enthusiasm on to other people. If this is your expectation too, then this training may not be for you! In reality, my experience was far from what I believed the ethos of yoga to be (and I own a studio with a collective of seven amazing yoga teachers who encouraged me to go do my teacher training). I found it stifled my energies rather than nurtured them and I came away feeling crushed rather than uplifted, as a person and definitely as a potential yoga teacher. Being told how I had to learn humility and how it was maybe my age - that maybe I had trouble taking authority from people younger than myself. Whilst I appreciate an intensive training course must be based around rules and strict organization, I felt these were implemented to the point of patronizing and of a bullying nature, feeling particular teachers were frequently judgmental. I was left feeling demoralized, having been encouraged to purge (vomit for 29 days consecutively), criticized for any communication attempted for a six-hour period each day, and reprimanded with verbal abuse on many occasions. Maybe my age was my greatest hindrance, but having taught and lectured for many years, I just do not consider humiliation as a motivational tool. Good luck if you do!" website, edited

  • Review by Rhan from New Zealand

    "This course was all that I hoped that it would be and all that it promised to be. I wanted a relaxed and in-depth introduction to the many aspects of the eight limbs of yoga, obviously a challenge to squeeze into a one month intro course, however I really feel that this was achieved. All aspects of the course revealed the dedication, devotion, and care of the teachers to our learning and further progress and understanding of this bottomless sea of knowledge. It was like being safely descended into a scuba dive, slowly exploring the depths of philosophy, asana, pranayama, meditation, teaching, chanting, adjusting, and yoga. My daily practice has continued and developed naturally as a result of this immersion. Even though I have been teaching yoga asana in Bali for five years now, I feel so much more confident and grounded in my personal yoga lifestyle and far more equipped to share what I feel and know of yoga. Many thanks to Scarlett, Sequoia, Raquel, Susie, and Hamid. Namaste."

    "A training with Tribe Yoga is life-changing. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of yoga for personal growth and those who want to become a yoga teacher. You learn so much in a training, it's a lot of work and great fun at times, and a truly nurturing atmosphere" website, edited

    "The Tribe Yoga teacher training was truly life-changing. I signed up for a teacher training as a first step. The diversity of perspectives from the different teachers, the gorgeous setting in India, the warmth they held in their hearts, and the learning process was all amazing and inspiring. The training left me full of gratitude for the experience and with direction on where to go next along my yogic path." website, edited

  • Review by Tamara from UK

    "Tribe Yoga training course is very well thought out and well presented. The information is relayed in a comprehensive and professional manner. It is evident through the results achieved, individually and as a collective group that a lot of consideration and effort went into crafting the syllabus, to not only make it accessible enough to everyone, but at the same time making sure that the optimum information gets filtered through effectively. In addition, there is also a very good balance with the structure of the training in terms of the percentage of time allocated to each specific subject category. I feel that the group received a strong foundation, to keep building on post training completion." website, edited

  • Review by Ashleigh from USA

    "The program was well thought out and covered everything that I needed to know. Of course, much of my training has been through other teachers, my self-practice, and my own teaching. But this course was a great basis for learning how to teach and delving deeper into the more spiritual aspects. The teachers were excellent and professional and the environment was beautiful and perfect for an intense teacher training." website, edited

  • Review by Lea from USA

    "The Tribe Yoga teacher training was an immensely powerful tool to self-study, healing, and understanding the mechanics of the body and the mind. I came to India wanting to deepen my knowledge of the roots of yoga and was deeply inspired by the wealth of knowledge that I was given that extended far past any other studies that I had ever been of part of. Truthfully, I did not know what to expect at all and am incredibly moved by the powerful support and generosity the teachers offered about their own life journeys in yoga and its counterparts. The program was the most dynamic because of the encouragement each person was given to find their own voice within yoga, their own unique voice and style, and the groundwork was set from the first day to transcend any rigid dogma and create an individual path. It was a wonderful wonderful experience and I am forever touched. Thank you! Love and namaste!"

    "The Tribe Yoga teacher training course was an incredible experience! Not only was the setting fantastic, but the course itself was wonderful, in-depth, clear, and well-balanced. The variety of knowledge, styles, and approaches gained from the perfectly balanced teachers was amazing, allowing us the students to get a better idea of our own personal teaching styles and preferences. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone. Amazing!" website, edited

  • Review by Nathalie from UK

    "The tribe yoga teacher training has been an amazing experience for me; it has given me the skills to teach. From day one, we were teaching each other and I felt there was an emphasis on learning to teach. The anatomy sessions were very interesting and beneficial in really helping to bring the asana to life through learning how each posture affects the body, the muscles used, and the dynamics of stretching and relaxing. This course is the beginning of the journey and has been a great personal experience that I feel has opened me up in a way that enables me to share the teachings with others. Scarlett's knowledge of yoga is immense and she imparted it to us in such an easy way that it was impossible to not learn from her. She was attentive to each of our needs, nurturing us independently and as a group, so that we really grew together throughout the month. Raquel is an inspiring teacher, with a great sensitivity, care, and understanding of yoga and the student. Her style of teaching is fun and lighthearted and yet precise and in-depth. She really looked after us all and gave us as much time and energy as we required."

  • Review by Evi van Meirhaege from Belgium

    "I attended the yoga teacher training in the picturesque town of Bad Mittendorf. The location was very relaxing, as the small town of Bad Mittendorf is surrounded by mountains and rolling meadows. The small town had very helpful and friendly people. The group of students attending the training developed a wonderful rapport amongst themselves. The sharing of breakfast and dinner preparations and eating together was very enjoyable. Although I arrived a couple of days into the training, Scarlett ensured that I soon caught up with her teachings to the rest of the group. As a teacher, Scarlett is very thorough in explaining the material and the mechanics of yoga to the students and the practitioners of yoga. Her style of teaching is consistent with the practicing of the asana, pranayama, and meditation techniques. Enough time was provided to complete the review of the asana with handouts to help the students. Raquel taught the group at the Tribe Yoga teacher training in Bad Mittendorf. The first yoga Nidra session with Raquel was a good indicator to her style of teaching. The following weeks, we realized and benefited from the gentleness of her voice that guided us through the most intense asana and Vinyasa. Scarlet and Raquel shared their own experience in establishing their practice, guiding the new teachers with encouragement and support."

  • Review by Kathryn Krispin from Abu Dhabi, UAE

    "I attended the Tribe Teacher Training course in Chiang Mai in March 2011. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my time there, but I'll try! Through my experience with Tribe Yoga, I grew emotionally and physically. Emotionally, the course was life-changing. I was sort of lacking in confidence and couldn't have imagined teaching a yoga course to anyone! Yet, in the month I was there, I was able to gather the courage and confidence, and a strong belief in myself. The teachers, Mark, Raquel, and Sequoia, were encouraging and supportive through everything. They helped me see what I could be, even when I couldn't imagine it. I grew physically through the daily practice and healthy eating, combined with proper breathing practices. I felt stronger than I'd ever been by the time I left Thailand. I have been teaching regularly since I returned to my home in Abu Dhabi. I feel prepared and confident, and I am so happy I can help others see how wonderful yoga is! Tribe Yoga made it all possible."

    "I wish to express my gratitude to all the teachers (including students) on the Tribe Yoga teacher training as I learned a lot about myself and about yoga! The retreat location for the training was beautiful and great for long meditative walks in nature. Raquel and Scarlett offer very different skills and abilities but come from the same place fueled by love and yoga. I feel blessed to have experienced the month long course, the journey has revealed a new me and new way of life and given me the experience and confidence to share yoga with others."
