Saadia Ambreen / November 201950 Hour Yoga TTC in Chiang Mai, Thailand
“A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE” I and my friend did a 50 hours YTTC at Chiang Mai in Nov 2019. From the moment I signed up, everything went smooth – thanks to Hope for her proactiveness in communication and looking after everything. Since we arrived at the beautiful venue, the hospitality and warmth of our Hosts made us feel we were part of a bigger family and felt home away from home. Best Thai vegan food was served every day with choices of fresh local fruits. I still miss the delicious food and those waffles and banana bread from breakfast thanks Pe Bee. Kitchen staff were always happy to help and cater to different food preferences. The teachers – each of them were a gem. Very knowledgeable and committed. The course content was carefully selected with the right mix of theory and practice. The timetable kept us busy from 6 am until 8 pm. But despite the intense schedule – I thoroughly enjoyed every class. As every class had something interesting to offer. It felt like the teachers were there for a cause rather than a job. Everyone at the school was committed to make our stay perfect. We were ready to extend our stay but had non-refundable flights booked for further travel. I highly recommend that you take YTTC here. It’s intense but every moment spent at the training will be memorable. You will come back with a whole new perspective about life. Namaste 🙏
