My expectations were exceeded on all levels: standard and quality of teachers, content of the course and practical implementation of the knowledge gained.


The level of excellence from all four teachers was outstanding. I was touched by the compassion and patience of each teacher. Their own personal delivery of the different lectures. Their understanding of each student’s issues, be it big or small. Their professionalism throughout the entire month was outstanding. I felt that I have experienced Yoga. An Authentic Teacher Training.
