What People Are Saying
“Phenomenal experience that habours unimaginable self growth”
I liked the way the course was taught, it was different to all the yoga I had practised and the retreats I had previously been to. At first I was a little skeptical but by the end I noticed amazing shifts in my own body and consciousness that I had never achieved before this course. This retreat has also given me the skills to share what I have learnt as a instructor and I can confidently say I will continue my learning and practising in connection with the Ishka Center and their amazing team there. Thanks to everyone involved during that beautiful 3 week experience
“Magical dream land of doing less to accomplish more”
I liked everything! These are a quality and authentic group of folks who truly practice what they preach. The foundation of the program is rooted in conscious living and gives a soft opening to the infinite information around this topic. Carlos is very intelligent, interesting and highly qualified to teach. Simon is excellent at translating to English and adds a lot of enthusiasm! Everyone on the team has a lot of charm, knowledge and personality!! All are loving, gracious and truly welcome each student as family 🥰 The course digs into ego issues so, come with an open mind and heart and you’ll have a great time and learn a lot!!! PS. I especially appreciate Carlos’s awareness of where each student is at emotionally and mentally. Always providing room to rest and reminding “all things without effort.”
“It was the perfect yoga-teacher-training for me. I loved it!”
I enjoyed the 22 days at its fullest. The place is pure magic, the team loving and understanding. There is no duty, no pressure. All you do is because you want to do and if not you don’t do it. For me the perfect atmosphere to learn, grow and develop my proper Yoga. When i look back i would say that it was the best investment of time and money i’ve ever did in my life.
