    Lura has much knowledge and wisdom that she is passionate about sharing. During my YTT, most of the teaching was with Lura, with different teachers and physiotherapists for the anatomy module who were excellent. Bienestar as a yoga school has some exciting developments coming up which I am keen to go back and see. Overall i am grateful for all that I learnt, my experience and the wonderful mix of people I met along the way.

    Thank you Kaya Lin, Committed and engaged students make all the difference to any class. I know you will be an attentive and engaged teacher. You have opened the door to learning that will continue your exploration of all things yogic. I am looking forward to see what you do next. Lura

My 200 hour teacher training with Lura was an overall good one. She is very knowledgeable and was always there to answer any questions. The training started as if we were all absolute beginners. At first it felt slow, but as time progressed I realized the importance of taking that extra time. I learned special adjustments and modifications that will help me provide that attention to detail with my students. I appreciated having a small group where we could all get the attention we needed and the opportunities to teach a few times. Lura encourages everyone to bring their own personality to their practice which allowed everyone to get creative and have fun. Moving forward, I see where there could be improvement in the organization of the training and scheduling. She also made very opinionated, personal comments that were not related to the training and at times inappropriate. All in all, I'm grateful for my experience and training at Bienestar. Full Review
