Ana from Mexico

"I just finished by 300h yoga teacher training program in Ubud. I chose this course because its syllabus looked complete and the teachers had lots of experience. All my expectations were surpassed! The classes are HELD in paradise, in an open area surrounded by nature so you can feel the wind and listen to the birds as you meditate."
