    Completing a YTT program is an investment in yourself, and as such choosing a school is a hugely important decision. Look no further! Loka Yoga School is the best of the best. Taryn and Yann are exceptional teachers and beautiful human beings. They are fully invested in the complete experience each and every student has. They create and nurture a family over the course of the month where lifelong relationships are made. The program is not only rich in quality yoga curriculum and instruction, but also in life experience. Taryn and Yann have created a fulfilling, rewarding, and impactful experience in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Bali.

    This teacher training exceeded my expectations. All the teaching was to a high standard and Taryn, Yann and Sharada are all amazing teachers and each bring a deep insight, to their teaching. Taryn is a very kind and compassionate person and she brings this to her teaching - she truly takes yoga off the mat and lives it.

    After searching for the “perfect” YTT course for years, but never finding the right one, Loka Yoga arrived in my life just as it was supposed to. I realized this from the initial correspondence I had with Taryn, and throughout the entire month I had daily overwhelming reminders that this was exactly where I needed to be. Taryn pours her soul into her teacher trainings and her genuine love, presence, and passion for yoga is undeniable. She is an incredibly compassionate woman and truly practices what she preaches, on and off the mat. Every single morning with Taryn feels like a private class as she guides you through your asana practice. She passes on her knowledge and experience generously and with a humble grace that is sometimes lost in the world these days. She holds a space that is safe and non-judgemental, and encourages everyone to be the unique individuals we are. This creates an environment that is not only conducive to students becoming confident instructors, but also experiencing deep personal growth. Time stands still while Sharada speaks. She is a deep and powerful human being, whose vulnerability speaks straight to your heart and allows you to relate to her remarkable life experiences. With her sweet nature and light-hearted humour, she has this seemingly effortless ability to take you on a journey as she delivers simple yet profound insights that are emotional, thought-provoking, and mind-blowing. I found myself hanging off her every word during each philosophy lesson, and never wanted her to stop speaking. She has this incredible way of inviting you to change your entire perspective without pressure; just by simply showing you a different way. Yann was the best fitted piece of the puzzle for Loka Yoga. His career as a nurse took him around the world, gifting him with plenty of knowledge and diverse experience and his information on different physical conditions is priceless. His lessons in anatomy have the perfect balance of education and entertainment to keep everyone engaged. He walks you through every single “small part” of the physical body, and in the end the bigger picture is much more clear, allowing you to integrate the information into your yoga practice and teaching. His smiley face and relaxed disposition seems to rub off on everyone in his presence, as you can really be yourself around him. I feel like my life has changed, because it has been. I walked away with a certificate which says I can safely guide others through asana practice, but I left with much larger and important gifts. While I recognize that it is our own inner work, willingness, and presence that allows us to grow in life, it was through the teachings of Taryn, Sharada, and Yann that I had one of the biggest breakthroughs of my life. This training with Loka Yoga has been a necessary and vital component in my process and I cannot express enough my gratitude and love for everyone. It was deep, emotional, and beautiful. Thank you all.

    Loka Yoga School prepared a safe, comfortable and structured way to transfer their knowledge which is needed to be a confident and well educated yoga teacher. They guided you through a mindfull body perception and an adjusted yoga practice and of course the way of teaching. They also created a space for being an authentic yoga teacher with personal touch. I was also very glad to learn the philosophy aspects of yoga as I think from an expert in the field.

    April 2019 I completed my 200-hr yoga teacher training with Taryn, Yann, Sharada and 10 fellow yogis in Ubud, Bali. I really appreciated that it was a smaller group because you were able to get more 1:1 help and we all formed a family away from home. This yoga teacher training was organized and very thorough, you can tell that all of the teachers really put in so much time and effort to make sure that we would have all the knowledge to leave here feeling confident to teach on our own. During this journey we learned about the asanas, anatomy and philosophy which really sets you up for success as you leave a yoga teacher. Taryn the director really goes above and beyond for each of her students which did not go un-noticed. I never expected that I would grow as a person as much as I did. This training was more than just a yoga teacher training, it was life changing! I am super grateful for this experience, its one that I will hold close to my heart forever.

      Perfect is the word that comes up if I look back at the YTT of Taryn and Olav. They are complementary to each other, so I got inspired by 2 wise & passionate teachers. In a great environment I learned about a broad variety of yoga (hatha, vinyasa, tantra yoga, meditation, pranayama, philosophy & anatomy). Taryn & Olav both have beautiful hearts and you will definitely feel that. The program is an amazing set up to prepare you to feel ready as a yoga teacher and as bonus, it is life changing for your own personal grow as well!!
