To do my first TTC at Anahata was the best experience and choice I could have ever made. After 3 years of personal practiced, I was locked and needed to go deeper, and at Anahata I was able to discover and unlock what was left. I will always be greatful for the time I spent there.The teachers are just extraordinary. By one hand, Vannesa with all her energy help me to understand how to bring yoga not only through the physical practice but also outside the mat. By the other side, Anton`s background and knowledge was just outstanding. All the patience and calm to transmit the importance of being compassion to our bodies and understand the process of how yoga can become the healing and therapeutic tool we all should have to live a better life. And not even talked about the astonish environment where Anahata is located, so close from the beach, between the trees and bushes with all these beautiful animals and noises from birds and nature. Such an amazing time! Hope I will go back as soon as possible
This teacher training changed my life. And it's not an euphemism : It really and deeply changed my perception of myself and the world. It was the best decision of my life to follow my intuition and choose this TTC. I really started to learn yoga here : pranayama, asanas, kriyas, meditation and philosophy. All the teachers left in me a indelible trace in my soul. I will always remember where I felt free for the first time ! If you read this, believe me, I don't have enought words to describe how much this month was incredible in my life. For rationals people, I can say this : I lived in a really confortable bungalow (the wooden one) in Hutsun. When I was felt asleep by night I eard the sound of the waves beause the see was 100m far from my bungalow. I ate a really good food in this place, and everything was easy, simple to find. We learnt a lot every day. I've improve a lot my yoga practice and theory. I'd challenged myself a lot with my english and I come back to France with a better level in english, a certification, and I started to teach the first week of my return. Vanessa is an incredible, generous, powerful, beautiful and clever woman. Anton is wise, educated and not dogmatic at all. I really appreciate Alex, Mica, Julie and Cheryl. Everyone gave me a lot. I'm really grateful for this choice and I will never regret this experience. And I met really amazing people. Thank you.
This was by far the best life changing decision I have made, and experience I could accumulate. If you are looking for a hands on, heart warming true connection to yoga, friendship, love, compassion and pure island magic, as you delve deeper into your practice, Anahata is it. I had extremely inspiring teachers whom I still communicate with, as well as 18 new best friends as my fellow students, with who I often keep in touch with. Never in a million years, could I have expected, better yet imagined a better outcome for my first 200hrs and becoming a yoga teacher. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to stay on the island and continue to enjoy daily classes with Anahata and watch the growth of the new group of TTCvstudents. Anahata has since become home away from home, and I look forward to return soon. The vegan lunches were also delicious and memorable as you can see in this photo. Abundant Love and Gratitude!! XOXO
Do my first TTC at Anahata was the best decision I could have made. Vanessa is a wonderfull teacher, she help me not only in the physical practice, but also to understand how to bring the process of yoga outside the mat. She is such an amazing person and I will be always great full for the amazing time I spent there. By the other hand, Anton`s way of teaching and all the knowledge he has is just outstanding. I really loved to learn about how yoga can become the medicine I need to keep my body and mind in balance, all the therapeutic and healing that yoga can give us.and finally the place Anahata Yoga Shala, is just the perfect place be, I love it!
This teacher training program was a life changing experience. I loved having different teachers with different background in various schools of yoga; I feel it gave us a well-rounded education. Different lecturers provided professional insight on a range of topics. Anton and Alex's lessons especially spoke to me, and I am so grateful to Vanessa for opening this school! I made an amazing yoga family at the end of 4 weeks and I am forever grateful for having met everyone involved in this wonderful program!
Best decision I’ve made to do the RYT200 at Anahata Yoga Shaka on Koh Phangan. Vanessa, Anton, Mica and Alex are all very knowledgeable teachers, each has a unique approach towards teaching and together they form a strong team. Vanessa is a loving and caring beautiful lady, and a free spirit!! Her way of being always inspires me to remove disguises in life and get connected with my true inner self. Anton is a very wise and experienced teacher, and I’ve learned the best restorative yoga from him. He is also super lovely and fun in person, and we all love him for that! Mica teaches great Flow and Yin with nice sequences and perfect control on tempo, and he also has a lot to share about yogic diet. A passionate, warm-hearted and gentle guy! Alex simply is the BEST philosophy teacher I’ve known - every single class with him has been a privilege and absolute enjoyment.
Besides the teachers, I’ve also had the luck to meet a bunch of sweet lovely fellow yogis. It felt like a big family, and the connection among many of us will stay for a long, long time. The location and the people here on the island is also a big plus. The island is peaceful and quiet most of the time and it has the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. And, we’ve met the kindest locals here - Pat who prepares the delicious vegan brunches for us, and Ging who runs Hutsun where most students stayed, and many more...
It’s been a truly magical month for me, and I’ll definitely come back one day, maybe for some teachings!
"One of the best decisions I've made"I really enjoyed all of the teachers in different ways. Each one of them brought a different dimension of learning and practice that made it so vaulable as a whole. I LOVE Anton, he truly is a great yogi and human being, not to mention he's hilarious. Vanessa is absolutely incredible and helped me greatly through some things that came up emotionally. Alex is one of my greatest teachers and I valued his lectures above all. I loved the freedom of the practice and it truly is what you make it. Its a lot of yoga!! But now my body craves it. I stayed at HutSun and it was the best! had breakfast there every morning and Ging (the owner) is nothing short of accommodating. The pool is also great, especially on hot days during our lunch brakes. Plenty of great restaurants near by, no need to get a scooter. I made some lifelong friends and I couldn't be happier with my choice to do this retreat.I really loved the brunch but after a few weeks I started to crave something different and sometimes would skip it. But really beautiful vegan food prepared with love.
