This experience was the most poignant of my entire life. The instructors were all superb — clear and concise and open and warm to every student in the class. I learned not only to be a teacher of yoga poses (asanas) but also of yogic philosophy. The location was beautiful and the course gets my rave reviews.
I came to do the 200-hour yoga teacher training and had the best time ever. My hatha yoga teachers were fantastic. My practice grew and became far deeper than I anticipated. Paradise Island is exactly that, I loved being able to go into the sea all the time and wander down the beach.
My teacher training course proved to be an invaluable experience for living a true yoga life and sharing yoga with others. Since my training, I have found ways to open up more time in my everyday life for yoga; and I can see the effects of yoga philosophy on my mind.

Besides the yoga postures, I didn't know much about the yogic lifestyle. It was hard at the beginning, but then I just surrendered to this beautiful ancient spiritual practice that is yoga. I learned so much during the program on a very deep level. The teachers and teachings are AMAZING. Its following me every day of my life.
The training changed the way I see the world and my role in it, even though I've been practicing yoga for years and already had completed a different teacher training course a few years ago. This experience isn't only about learning how to teach yoga — it's learning about yourself.
