    They made it a great experience for me. I had to take some time off from the course due to a back injury, but they were always supportive, kind, and kept me going through to the end. I really appreciate it.

    I cannot express the gratitude in my heart in words. The 200 hour teacher training program at Akasha exceeded my expectations. The Akasha teachers and mentors were skilled, absolutely available to me when I needed them and so very supportive. The live zoom calls allowed me to feel as if I was doing an in-person training and I was able to make connections with my peers and community that will last a lifetime. My mentor was available at any time and his feedback was professional, supportive and helped me develop my teaching beyond what I could have imagined. The course work done online allowed me to go at my own pace and was thoughtfully and skillfully put together. This course deserves a million star review. Thank you Akasha!

    I am so happy I took my teacher training with Akasha. Burkhard brought immense yogic philosophy wisdom that went beyond what I expected for a 200 hour training, and Devdas was also amazing from a philosophical and technical perspective (especially with pranayama). Moreover, Kirsten's demonstrations for asana were so easy to follow...I also felt so comfortable reaching out with questions to the whole Akasha team.

    It was very nice to be able to work at your own pace with this program. They are very good at explaining all parts of the program and are very friendly over zooms.

    Akasha Yoga Academy was everything I could have hoped for in a yoga teacher training and more. They provide an extremely high level of coaching in asana technique, anatomy training, breathwork, meditation, the history and philosophical teachings of yoga, and the art of teaching to others. On top of all this, they create a strong sense of community and family among the students and teachers. I really grew through this program - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and I have gained a solid foundation for continual growth for the rest of my life. I am truly grateful to Devdas, Burkhard, and Kirsten for this powerful experience. I would recommend this program to anyone.

    The Akasha Yoga Academy is a home where extremely professional people share their knowledge and experience from their hearts. The amount of variety and depth they offer on the course curriculum is mind-blowing: from anatomy lessons, to philosophy and, of course, the yoga practice (asana, pranayama and meditation). Every team member is always ready to receive the students as they are, with their questions and concerns, not only about the course itself, but also about this incredible human experience. They offer daily zoom calls, which, for me, makes the training even more special. My favourite calls where the sharing circles, where we would connect with yogis from all over the world and share our accomplishments or difficulties. Kirsten virtually wraps her arms around us and in a motherly way teaches us to respect our own bodies, inside and outside the yoga mat. Devdas always has a beautiful story to tell and teaches us how to move in a fun and light way through life, not taking things so seriously. And Burkhard makes us question our beliefs and what we say, think and do — not in a judgemental way, rather to make us perceive life from another point of view. He is a living yoga encyclopaedia and I say this is the best way possible, because he knows so much about philosophy, history and anatomy, it’s incredible. 
 This is the type of family that not only points to you the top of the mountain, but actually walks beside you every step of the way, clearing the path as we go. I am grateful I found this school and I followed my hearts’ whisper and enrolled on this journey. This yoga training is truly life changing! P.s.: I will probably never shut up about how amazing, well thought and well delivered this course is and how heartwarming this family (teachers, mentors, videographers, fellow students, etc.) is. If anyone asks, I will proceed to tell them all the details. And if no one asks… I will probably do it still!

    Akasha offers a fantastic program with incredible guidance and support. The online platform for the course is laid out in an easy-to-follow format that anyone can use. Although this is an online course, I was able to get guidance from mentor teachers throughout the training and during the live weekly calls. Devdas is such a joy to have on the live Zoom calls, his enthusiasm and encouragement toward all the students are such an inspiration. There is no doubt in my mind that the knowledge I've gained from this course will help me become a successful yoga instructor. In fact, I loved the 200 hr course so much, that I just started the 80 hr Yin Yoga teacher training course. My only wish is that I could have completed the course on the deck in Bali rather than in my bedroom. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone seeking an online version of yoga teacher training.
