testimonials

“I doubt there is a course out there that can ‘gift’ you as this does. Your teachers are incredible people. I have made some beautiful friendships and shall treasure this whole experience, as they don’t come around that often. Amazing people.” - L.F.

"I enjoyed every moment of your 200 hour yoga course. I had no idea how in-depth the history and progression of yoga to our present date came about. The teachers were very informed and supportive. I have learnt about myself in every way and this has improved my practice mentally and physically. I highly recommend this course, even if teaching is not your goal." - Wanda

"This course has been so life changing and truly inspiring. It was filled with knowledge of the philosophy of Yoga, the asana practices and the anatomy. It even included the western insights and the traditions of Yoga, which I loved!" - Demi
