Gunnar is originally from Germany but now lives in Spain and India. He is a former athletics professional and has worked as a sports coach. He has also trained as a sports massage therapist and is trained in energetic massage techniques. Years of professional sea diving gave him an insight into a variety of different breathing techniques and the application thereof.

"So worth it"
Didn’t know I needed this training as much I did. Mona and Gunnar make sure they have the most up to date information to share and their passion for what they do is infectious. The food was so so good and the chefs are completely understanding of any sensitivities and allergies. Highly recommend!!!

"Fabulous teacher training experience "
Loved the inclusive atmosphere of small group training which focussed on Yin yoga. Experienced teachers, both keen to share their knowledge and help us to explore this beautiful practice. I will definitely look to complete other training with them.

"Yin Yoga Teacher Training Tarifa "
Just returned home from a wonderful week of learning in Tarifa with Yoga Sunshine . The Yin Yoga Teacher training ticked every box for me . The training was incredibly informative & fun with step by step tuition from the passionate Mona Abter . Tarifa is a magical place & Villa la Peńa offers a comfortable stunning location to study or as a retreat - the vegetarian food provided by the two chefs Kate & Tracy was delicious fresh & super tasty . Our beautiful group 12 consisted of 9 nationalities & we all hope to meet again someday with Yoga sunshine ☀️

"Learnig by feeling and doing and teachers with passion"
To find open hearted and passioned theachers like this is really rare, but thats what Mona and Gunnar do. And I think that you need to learn with mind, body and soul. But also the right amount of theory (MIND), very nice sequences of Yin yoga with yang elements (BODY) and space for every unique soul what is in the room (SOUL)! Namasté

Mona and Gunnar both have a lot of experience which they share through the training, with details and passion. The curriculum is very complete, from anatomy to energetics and teaching practice. I highly recommend their training!

"eine erstklassige Ausbildung und wunderbare Erfahrung"
Das Yin Yoga Teacher Training hat all meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Es war eine wunderschöne lehrreiche Zeit mit 1a fundierten Ausbildungsinhalten, bestens strukturiert und erstklassig angeleitet. Das Training ist in sehr gut verständlichem Englisch vermittelt worden und war für mich als Deutsche mit ('nur') durchschnittlichen Englischkenntnissen wunderbar verständlich. Jeder Tag war ein Geschenk, Yoga mit Leidenschaft und Herzenswärme in einer tollen Gemeinschaft inmitten eines paradiesischen Ortes. Die Villa La Pena ist ein Traum und das Essen über alle drei Mahlzeiten war einfach hervorragend. Gourmetfreude & Detox kamen hier zusammen und wer viel Wert auf frische, gemüselastige, gesunde basische Mahlzeiten legt, ist hier genau richtig. Ich bin total begeistert und werde noch lange an diese paradiesische Zeit zurück denken. Der Trainingsplan ließ genügend Luft für Pausen, so dass diese Ausbildung auch für eher introvertierte Charaktäre geeignet ist. Mona ist eine wunderbare empathische Lehrerin, die im Handumdrehen eine herzliche, warme und familiäre Atmoshäre schafft, in der man sich schnell Zuhause fühlt. In ihren Yogastunden kann man sich prima fallen lassen, zu sich kommen und erwacht jedes Mal aus einem kleinen Traum :)
