Enya Powell Taylor / November 2019200 Hour Yoga TTC in Chiang Mai, Thailand
“TRULY FORTUNATE TO HAVE CHOSEN THIS SCHOOL”. This school went above and beyond any expectations I held. I come from Scotland (currently living in Vietnam) and found that it was of the same standard as back home. The training itself took me on a journey of knowledge and understanding about yoga and how it relates to me and my current situation. I learned so much in all of the topics that I never expected to learn. The teachers are all really inspiring and genuinely lovely people and I really couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The accommodation is very quaint and lovely, its clean, comfortable and just what you need. It’s in the most beautiful location, outside Chiangmai in the rolling hills among the rice paddies. So beware of a friendly spider (or gecko) or 2 🙂 The food is amazing!!! Its vegetarian and you have a buffet style dinner every night and the most amazing waffles in the morning! Peebee and her team looked after everyone’s various dietary equirements without a hesitation. I’m not a vegetarian but it was definitely my kind of food. Some people struggled (energy wise) without eating meat so I’d suggest to others who feel this may be problem to them, just bring some protein powder or tinned tuna or something. Hope was amazing from the moment I booked until the moment I left. She is so organised and professional but everyone felt as though she valued us and she had a great relationship with everyone. Highly highly reccomend this training!  Wish I had longer to stay with you!
