So I enjoyed my experience here. The food was great, and there was a lot of it -- three large, delicious meals a day. That kind of leads into why I only give this experience three stars, though -- it did feel more like a fun retreat than a serious yoga school. It felt like we skimmed the surface of some serious philosophy topics rather than diving in. That being said, the people were really nice, the island a pleasant place to be for a couple of weeks, and I did learn about sequencing, cueing and asanas. I would recommend it to beginner yogis looking to deepen their practice or have a unique vacation, but not to anybody seriously on a yogic path.

Hello Ilana, Thank you from your feedback. As you know, the program is registered under Yoga Alliance and we have a committed responsibility in offering / facilitating a well rounded program that covers fully the curriculum that is required as such. Our program follows the required elements - Ethics, History, Philosophy, Business, Anatomy, Asanas, Meditation, Teaching / Planning / Practical Movement. We also add in programing about the Chakras, about safety in the classroom, and about maintaining a yogic lifestyle. We have had beautiful reviews about the diversity of the program, the flow of the seminars, the quality of the classes, and the overall supportive community that we have built for our students...before arrival, during our time together and after. Regarding your comment about not diving deeper into the philosophy, I would like to remind you that we do cover very thoroughly the meaning of yoga, walk through the history, and cover yoga sutras. We also cover thoroughly the 8 limbed path and do a deep dive into the Yamas and the Niyamas. We overview all things Ayurveda - the sister science of yoga :) Additionally we have a seminar on the meridian system and the Nadis.....We discuss and cover the different schools / styles of yoga and really do a nice deep dive into the Chakras. Further to that, we had wonderful feedback from your peers on the seminar / classes that covered mantra, bandhas, and kriyas. We are super disappointed that you did not feel the experience met your expectation - we certainly wish you would have shared that feedback to us directly while with us. We had conversation daily, check ins....likely if you would have addressed your concern to us then, we could have either explained why the program is balanced as such or could have directed you to the supplementary reading list that was provided in the class group chat. In any case - we wish you nothing but the best as you continue on your beautiful path in the wellness world! Much love

This training was a great investment. Training was solid, food was amazing, people were spectacular, and the island was one of the coolest places I have ever been. I highly recommend joining Kootenay for yoga training!

I cannot describe with words what I feel after this YTTC, definitely a life changing experience. I started doing yoga during lockdown, didn't have a huge experience as a yogi, but despite my fears and insecurities if I was going to be at the right level for this course, I applied for it and I can't be happier and more proud of myself for making this decision. After these 2 weeks of intense training, I feel full of love, energy, confidence, vitality, and extremely excited to share everything I've learnt during the course with everyone around me. I couldn't have asked for a better group/team/family to go through this training. Emma always available for any questions or requests before and during the course. Lisa, amazing human being and chef (even if she says she doesn't know how to cook, she does know, and very well!!), she has fed us every day with the most tasty, colourful and nutritious food that helped us go through all our sessions fully energised. This has been a huge part of the training so massive thank you for that. Luisa and Sky, my two companions on this trip, always supportive, helpful and open to share with pure love, really grateful to have them as my friends now. Last but not least, Michelle, the best teacher I could ever ask for. She has been my reference, inspiration and guide along this journey, and she will always be. Michelle has an incredible intuition to understand the needs of each person and adapt those to the whole group, she chose the very best pace for teaching both the physical and the theoretical sides of the training, enabling us to learn, adapt our bodies and minds and really important avoiding any kind of injury, which in my case it's huge this hasn't happened. And of course, she is pure love and beauty inside and out, open to share her experiences, which helped me and the whole group to feel safe and confident to share also our ideas and thoughts without judgement but pure support and understanding. When I was about to choose which YTTC to go to, I read these reviews many times to see the feedback from the people attending to this courses. And this is my chance now. I would recommend to everyone to take this course, honestly, the best decision you will ever make. If you want to deepen your knowledge as a yoga practitioner or teacher, whatever your level is, being immersed in a peaceful space of love, support with amazing food and people, this is the YTTC you should choose :)

Lisa and Addy were amazing organizers!!! This mother-daughter duo is unmatched with their work ethic, kindness, spontaneity, and creativity. They are very experienced in the hospitality industry and it showed! All of the meals were well thought-out and delicious :) Sarah the instructor was so kind, flexible and knowledgable! She shared so much of her wisdom with us and it was truly life-changing! We had a wonderful group full of amazing and inspiring people. I would highly recommend this yoga teacher training experience.
