"My friends and I came to Goa for a week-long holiday and did yoga at Yoga Land every day that we were there. We loved Yoko's classes. His positive energy and gentle encouragement were wonderful and we really felt both physically and spiritually rejuvenated at the end of the week. We also had the opportunity to try flying yoga with April, which was wonderful! Thanks so much!"
