    The Zoé Animal Yoga teacher training in Ischia with Enrico da Luca was not what I expected. I selected this course because it seemed like an intensive training program (with convenient location, price, and time of year). I came prepared to work hard and learn a lot; instead, it felt more like an island vacation. Though I've been a yogi for over 10 years, this was my first yoga teacher training experience. While I did learn more about anatomy and asana alignment (as well as make great friends), the lack of organization and communication was constantly frustrating. This location and teaching style are great for a one-week yoga retreat, where one can explore the senses while immersed in nature; but not well-suited for a three-week yoga teacher training, where one hopes to learn the practical application and transmission of yoga as a modern career. Overall, this course has great potential, but I was not very satisfied with the training.

    Pros: Enrico is a very knowledgeable yogi; he did a wonderful job teaching the asanas, taking the time to correct each one of us throughout the sessions. I learned more about anatomy and alignment. The location was beautiful - the view of the sunsets over the island unforgettable! The excursions were enjoyable and appropriate for the training.

    Cons: Organization and communication were mainly absent - no daily schedules or mealtime conversation. Enrico was generally unavailable outside of sessions, even leaving the location altogether without warning. Excess of free time and lack of transportation. No regular schedule or group unity (Italian versus international students). The location was very remote and very basic - the house itself is really lovely, but be prepared to go without electricity, laundry facilities, Wi-Fi and other modern conveniences. It's a 45 to 60-minute hike (literally) to the closest town and beach. Many of the study topics listed in the course description were not covered. (Ex: chakras) No reading or studying materials were provided. Two meals per day (brunch and dinner) instead of the advertised three meals per day. An Italian-English translator was present, but it was a university student who never studied yoga.

    In the last few weeks, I participated at Enrico's 200-hour yoga teacher training as a way to improve my own personal practice and to open the doors for a potential future carrier. In Stromboli, a beyond beautiful location, the setting was amazing and particular; the island is unique and isolated, so I embraced the possibility of some last-minute organizational changes, adapted the Italian mentality, and enjoyed amazing meals while working hard and learning both about anatomy and practical aspects of yoga!

    Thank you so much, Enrico, for this wonderful training. A dream came true. I lived one of the most beautiful moments of my life here in Stromboli. Your teaching is so interesting and so complete. I feel now ready to teach and to become the best teacher I can be. You have been an example for me during these days. I learned a lot and I feel so grateful having you as master. Stromboli was one of the most beautiful places I have seen. Our location was absolutely stunning. The hosts were the most welcoming persons I have met, and I have eaten the most delicious food. I feel so thankful for every moment of this training and for the most kind people I have met. You made me the happiest student of the world.

    In recent years, I have been practicing yoga as a student, I was looking for a course that was educational, professional, and that allowed me to deepen my knowledge of yoga, both in practical terms and theoretically. I followed the training of Enrico De Luca Zoe Animal Yoga, that has allowed me to do 200 hours of yoga useful for teaching.

    Enrico was absolutely meticulous in the teaching of asana, prana, and theory. Stromboli is a perfect location to practice yoga, considering its peculiarity of wild island.

    First of all, thank you for having made possible this formative experience and congratulations on your preparation and the passion that shines through your work. I was not sure what to expect from a teacher training because it was the first I've ever attended. Surely, having viewed many others, it is deduced clearly that your training approach is far from schematic. Taking the decision to participate in your teacher training was the first choice to a training approach that I would define unconventional and complete. In fact, the idea that I had made previously by knowing you personally, following your work, and carefully reading the detailed program you have kindly provided, has not changed during the teacher training. It was good, I enjoyed it, it was super flexible, and I think you are very very very very good.

    The proposed program for this teacher training is complex and original, so when I chose to participate, I was curious how the theory and practice of yoga would be integrated, with the experience to do in nature (hiking, sea, and spas). The integration took place naturally: any time is yoga. This integration is the element that makes the difference in this course than others, and that is the added value for the student who wishes to become a teacher. Thanks, Enrico De Luca, for being a true teacher.

    The intense contact with nature was a key element of growth, transformation of the limits, and adaptability. Everything in nature is accomplished, the mind and body are in their natural rhythm, and the inner nodes melt. The theoretical and practical program and the experiential are extremely valid. Enrico, you're an exceptional teacher whom I respect and whom I trust, you do well to stay firm on your visions and ideas, characterize, and make unique your education. Thanks for everything, I am proud and honored to have you as a teacher.

    How many times have you given up to a little fun, and how many other times, fortunately not? I did not choose this path, it came to the right moment in my life as it was a visceral imprint to read the program. I followed my instincts, I had no particular expectations but inside I knew that I would need it. A journey with strangers that become family, the nights with the light of candles and stars, the sounds of nature, say yes without thinking twice. The "I love you" said out loud are good for your heart. The challenges; the "I can" and in the end, we've really done, the exceeded limits, forgotten and new ones to deal with. Yoga is everything and it's nothing, it's not all about asanas or physical training, this experience has made me discover a part of me that I had repressed for too long, that part wild, immortal, alive, and free, the existential condition that everyone should follow as a lifestyle to be happy. The performed activities have been experienced by me with all existing senses, totally appropriate in order that our teacher wanted to achieve, I take this opportunity to say thank you, for the first time I did not feel different, but an integral part something that I was living in secret without being understood, I found in him not only a guide but also a great friend. What I feel I have experienced it is not only a big improvement in my asanas in their knowledge and execution, but I restored an even deeper connection with my soul, my identity, with all of myself to others and the universe. Namaste!
