I came with my arms wide open and at the end I had my arms full of love gifts.

"Freedom within structure"

Living in a tent for 6 weeks was purifying & surprisingly enjoyable, allowing me feel more connected to the nature around. Birds are the alarm at sunrise. Showering under the stars, listening to the waves and chewing on nearby guava was a magical feast for the rested senses.

Teaching methodology focused heavily on philosophy. It was helpful to collectively spend time with the ancient texts, interpreting and digesting them with guidance. Asana practice was less demanding than what I am used to, but upon return I feel great progress. Allowha is incredibly humble & loving, forever encouraging & supportive of students' individual interests. There was lots of freedom to self direct studies, but sufficient structure to stay on track.

Extracurricular activities made the studies feel like summer camp with memories to treasure for a lifetime. Beata's dancing instruction and Baby Guru's exemplary ananda states contributed to the organic goodness of the flow. Support staff was top notch with big hearts and smiles every day. Thank you for the excellent vegan & gluten free food as well as genuine connections and interest in quality of our experience.

"Chen, 200hr YTT, Maui summer 2019"

Teacher Allowah is kind, patient and truly helpful! The training provided the necessary rigor yet still enjoyable for eager learners. Mark and Beata were also very friendly and supportive. Baby Sonny made the positive experience even sweeter!:)

"Truly Helpful Yoga is all about LOVE"

I thought this was the perfect Yoga Teacher Training for me. I learned so much attending this program. I loved the instruction by Allowah and his family, as well as Mark, Nyke, and Beata! The location was absolutely magical and allowed everyone to dive into yoga training beautifully. Eat-Sleep-Yoga is possible with all your meals prepared. The food was so delicious, nutritious, and made with love. An epic view of the North Shore of Maui was breathtaking and the rain was nice. Truly Helpful team was dynamic and all very talented and beautiful souls. If you want to learn about all the forms of yoga, yoga history, dance, and so much about your own practice in one of the most beautiful and mystical places I've ever been, hop on board with Truly Helpful.

"Only you have the answers."

This retreat with Allowah wasn't just a life-changing experience for me. It opened my eyes to the unique beauty and strength within myself. A great teacher won't teach you how to be great or give you the answers to happiness in life, a great teacher will help you see that only you can find the answers, only you can achieve the goals you aspire to, or realize what you already have and to be content with it. This was't a life-changing experience for me, it was a rebirth.

Allowah is a world-class yogi, deeply intellectual philosopher, charming musician, underrated comedian, and a great guy. He helped all of us with effective yet subtle, low-pressure techniques that left each of us feeling like we were more than ready to confidently share yoga in any studio or setting. The evolution of our physical yoga skills, ability to instruct, our mental, emotional and spiritual peace was profound and the difference I realized when I returned to my life and yoga practice back home was enormous. How my perception of meditation and spirituality has grown is something that I cannot put into words, you can only find out yourself. Selecting this specific retreat at this point in my life was divine timing for me. I will definitely attend another yoga retreat with Allowah when the opportunity presents itself. Also, the venue where the retreat was held was serene and naturally magnificent, overlooking the pacific with multiple practices per day in the temple, by the waterfall, or on the beach.
