    Go for it!

    PROS Pros: The reason I chose this school is that you can start whenever you want to and that the group of students is small. You'll start to teach asap, even with Carmen's clients. Where else will you find that in a TTC? And if you think you're not ready, just know that you are and that you'll fine support both from Carmen and Dietmar as well as your fellow students. What I really liked about this course is that the program is not cast in stone. There is (some) flexibility in the program and classes. Which gives you time to process and take everything in. Or give your body a rest so you can keep on opening it more and more. It still will be intens and you will go through a transformation. If a 7 am - 9 pm fixed program doesn't appeal to you, than this for sure will. That being said, I don't believe any training can ever be perfect. Someone once told me that you always get exactly what you need. If your gut feeling is telling you to come here, then trust it and go for it. For everything will fall into place at some point in time. Even after the training is over.

    Perfect!

    PROS Pros: I am so happy to have completed my 200-hour RYT training at Yoga Skyros IKE in Glyfada! It was perfect and it is one of the BEST decisions of my life. Before booking the training, I struggled because there are SO MANY OPTIONS (all over the world) but I went with Carmen’s place because of her background in yoga (and other related fields) and the academy’s concept of training smaller classes (10 students max). I think this is excellent because it really shows they care about spreading the knowledge to each and every student by building on his or her strengths. The accommodation was lovely - comfy bed and cozy room with everything you need. The neighborhood was beautiful and the location was great - only a 10-minute walk to the beach and downtown Glyfada where there are shops - supermarket, bakery, pharmacy, and restaurants. It’s approximately 20EUR to the airport using Uber (or you can take a taxi too). Make sure you view and click ‘like’ o their Facebook page to keep up with their news! The yoga training itself was great - I felt myself improving every day (mentally and physically). Practicing yoga with the people of Glyfada as well as visitors from around the world is what makes this location unforgettable. Thank you for everything Carmen and Dietmar! I will definitely be back!

    Review by Alexandra Bowley from Philippines

    Wonderful experience

    CONS Cons: I guess I would prefer a little more structure to the course. I really liked the idea that it is a rolling course and you can join at any point, but this does mean you can feel behind and rushed at points and possibly not cover every area that others did.

    PROS Pros: It was amazing to do the course in Greece with such an International team. There is a family feel to Yoga Skyros which I don't think you would get elsewhere. The teachers are so full of information and I learnt a huge amount in a very short space of time and feel a fuller and better person for it.

    Surprisingly Transformative Time

    PROS Pros: What did I like most? Not easy to tell, because everything was great! The teacher couple is extremely lovely, open and supportive. Their goal is to give you confidence and they actually achieve it with a lot of patience and continuous teaching. The Yoga Studio is very private, a beautiful flat with a great salon for yoga, a huge kitchen for everybody with a blender and everything you could need. The bedrooms have a good ambiance, and huge closets. So you really feel at home and have all the time to enter in the awesome science of yoga. I feel that I had a deep insight into the science and in some points a real understanding which really transformed me and gave me hope and motivation to keep on this path.

    An wonderful and unforgettable life and yoga experience

    CONS Cons: I am not disapointed at all !

    PROS Pros: I really liked the philosophy exchanges, the private and high quality teaching, as we were just 4 students during the training, we learned a lot and quickly. We were able to give a class since the second week ! The atmosphere was really a family atmosphere. That was a wonderful yoga and life experience which awake the consciousness😍!
