Tomas was fortunate to grow up in an environment where yoga was very present. His mother is also a yoga teacher and transmitted her passion from very young. Tomas has been practicing Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Chi Kung for several years. Later, during his travels to the East, he had the opportunity to know the Vippasana meditation, that made profound changes in his interior and since then meditation has been part of his life along with yoga. Last year, he finished the training of teachers of 200 hours and this year, he is attending the course of 500 hours.

    Thank you yet again for a fantastic and most memorable experience with you in El Palmar - it was a fun, challenging and emotional experience.

    About the Accommodation:

    Lovely accommodation, surf house staff and a wonderful, relaxing garden set in a beautiful, convenient location, just a stone's throw from stunning beaches with fantastic live music and DJs, affordable drinks and food, and a really cool, chilled vibe. Great surf school on site and an awesome masseur.

    The only downside was the noisy dogs nearby barking in the early hours, and having to share a room (but I knew about that before arrival).

    About the Course:

    Excellent tuition and demonstrations by passionate, experienced and talented yoga experts who live and breathe the yoga philosophy - this shines through in everything they say and do, even off the mat. Their encouragement, insight, support and care was so crucial to this fantastic experience.

    I will never forget the time I had in El Palmar - the amazing, inspirational teachers (and their stories), my fellow students from across the globe, the lovely house and kitchen staff, the surf team and the massages. I think some Shakti touched me while I was in El Palmar. I feel that I grew as a person and continue to do so. Now I feel inspired to share the light of yoga with others through my yoga teaching practice.

    Overall, an amazing, life changing/life enhancing and unforgettable experience! Thank you!

    Thank you, Dear Yogashala team, for such incredible course of transformation.

    I am grateful for the knowledge and experience I obtained.

    About the Course:

    The course is sharp in timing, well-structured, intensive in good way, balanced with theory and practice.

    And it can not to be done without such strong and good Yogashala team. Everybody played so important role and team together is so friendly and to nice to be with. I am impressed how the team work together with respect, care and support. You can feel safe and protective.

    One thing to add is even more practice :)

    About the Accommodation:

    Perfect place, location, amazing family who owns Nexo surf house. I felt a contact immediately would love to join.

    About the Course:

    - Really good course. In-depth learnings about every aspect of Yoga.

    About the Accommodation:

    - Amazing! Would even go there on my own holiday. Food was great and service was super friendly and kind, as well as very flexible.


    - Loved the teachers, as well as Klara! All of you made the experience just perfect. Each teacher had a different style, but you all complimented each other. To be highlighted: Javier, his knowledge and experience take you somewhere new. Tomas: his humility yet incredible ability to teach at all levels is just unbelievable. David: he is definitely someone you want by your side, not just in yoga, but in life... as seems to help everyone overcome their little insecurities by not being afraid to open up about his own imperfections. Klara: couldn't think of a better organizer, but... more importantly, couldn't think of someone who can cope so well with all these boys and their different personalities!

    The more we tie our body into knots, the more we can begin to untie our minds. This and more are what I learned from Yoga Shala. It feels like a family and nobody is left behind or forgotten. Javier is highly professional and puts all his love, knowledge, enthusiasm, and wisdom into his work and his students respect and admire him. All teachers there are great as well, and I feel they all love what they do. What more can I say? Thank you.
