I had a pleasant and excellent experience during the month I was at this school. The teachings and knowledge that are imparted of yoga, as well as the facilities and the food are very good. The best was the human and welcoming quality of the teachers , they are very close to the students. They are excellent teachers, and teach with love and passion. All the teachers are lovely, and thanks to them and my colleagues this experience changed my life forever, for which I will be eternally grateful and I will always carry them in my heart. It is very good that they work with small groups of students, for which you feel having a personalized teaching.
