"The perfect fit"

Warm environment, great teachers able to convey information and concepts in a clear, detailed way. Great variety of topics. I really liked the pranayama and mudra and alignement classes were extremely useful for my future teachings. Beautiful country surrondings that inspired me to go for long walks everyday and feeling at one with nature. In this training I found respect, competence and amazing human beings, much more than I could have hoped for: I felt at home. Food was lovely, nourishing and made with love and it was such a great experience to share ideas and memories at meal times with my fellow students and the teachers and it was so much fun to dance and sing along at the live concerts! Attending this course was life changing in so many ways and I miss the school and the people already!

"Beautiful retreat and beautiful people"

This training was so good I didn't want to leave. The teachers and the style of yoga were fantastic, I never tried this style but I love it . I enjoyed the classes and the fact that teachers push you to do more, but in a nice way, they want students to be free and with no fear! And I love the free time, because I like walking and the countryside is really nice and wild. At weekends they have live concerts that is good because I like dancing. I was also very surprised by the food, because it is really delicious and it's vegetarian!!! I miss already the good times

"A new family"

Hari-Om is now like family to me. I liked the training, I improved my practice a lot and learned so much about the important subjects of yoga. Marco and Elisa and Emanuela are the best teachers I could hope for, definitely my teaching seem more complete now. It was hard but lots of fun and I made friends for life. We enjoyed concerts every Saturday and we could dance and party. I am not a vegetarian but the food they cook is so good I am thinking of becoming vegetarian too!

"Fantastic course and environment"

I am in love with this school! so much fun during my training, I learned a lot about yoga and made new friends for life. Teachers are super expert and the topics discussed very good and useful. I enjoyed the food a lot and I like beer so I was so happy we could have a drink in the evening and talk for hours with the other students or the teachers. Another cool thing is the concerts we were treated to every weekend, live music for dancing and sing along. I will go back for more!

"Great experience"

I enjoyed every minute of this course, the classes were well structured, with plenty of tips to improve your personal practice as well as your teaching method. I liked the freedom we were given to express ourselves in the practice teachings and the detailed classes on anatomy. The training is intense with 4 hours of yoga every day, but after a few days I felt much stronger physically and mentally. The teachers were both very good and fun to be with and so were my fellow students. I will keep this memory for many years to come! Inga, from Sweden

"Feeling of Freedom and no judgment"

I really enjoyed this mini break as I was coming from some intense weeks of travelling and this was just what I needed. The yoga classes were very intense as we found out that they are part of a teacher training, but the teachers Max and Emanuelle were very good and supportive and gave very good instructions. It was nice to relax in the evening and chat to the other students. The food was also very good. I arrived tired and I left energized.

"Hari om was a life changing experience ,I throughly enjoyed"

The location of the training was amazing , the serenity and the food were amazing . The daily practice classes were a great variety of teachers and techniques which I learned a lot from.the classes helped build a lot of strength and build up a good daily practice I took back with me. I was pushed out of my comfort zone and that was great. The teachers had their own experiences and opinions which I respected a lot and it was shown through the lectures their knowledge . They believe that your own daily practice is very important in being a teacher which i believe into . All their teachers were really amazing in their own way. They make sure meditation and pranayama is an hour or more each day which also wasverygoodas itbecame a part of my practice even stronger and I really appreciated that .

"lack of yogic attitude and poor quality of teaching"

The location, the food, the students, practical classes, some teachers' knowledge. Unfortunately they didn't speak great English so they were mostly assigned to the Italian group of students. The English group missed out on it.

Hari-Om was exactly the kind of program I was looking for and I would definitely choose it again! I loved the location, the teachers and the supportive environment. It was technical and spiritual all in one. I felt like I learned what I needed to and also had the opportunity to go into myself and deepen my own practice and understanding of self. It was a wonderful experience.

This is a solid education. Both in theorie as in a physical and mental way this education prepares you in a good way to become a great teacher. The open vision of the school ( mix of yoga, physical training and different philosophies give you the chance to discover what style and approach fits you best.

I loved the training and the teachers. They are creative, mix a lot of other type of trainings with yoga, which I loved. I learned a lot and had the chance to share with amazing people from around the world. The only thing I didn´t agree with was that the training was 5 weeks long from 6 am to 7 pm every day, no resting days (just one afternoon in 5 weeks), just had lunch time as a break, and didn´t had the opportunity to get out of the Hotel to take some air. I think it is a bit too much. In order to integrate what you have learned you need to have some time on your own. Though, Samasati in Puerto Viejo is a beautiful location, surrounded by nature, and I felt very lucky to spent there more than a month.

From my research I found the Hari-Om school on line and felt that the 300hr TTC course suited me and timescale wise was ideal. Before starting the course my expectations were that it would be similar to my previous course, only longer. I loved my 200hr teacher training however the course at Hari-Om was very different to my expectations. The school brought so much diversity and variety in to the teaching which was far beyond my expectations of a standard 300hr course. The teachers kept the course interesting throughout and their passion and enthusiasm was infectious and wonderful to share. The location is idyllic too and a totally nurturing environment to be in. I would recommend the school to all levels of Yogi, whatever your level, or expectation you will be enriched by a beautiful experience.

Not a day goes by that I don't miss the beautiful teachers of the Hari-Om Yoga School! My experience with Hari-Om was so positive and life changing, it has made my life just that much better! Aside from the scientific and intellectual side of learning, there was so much love, spirituality, and compassion to share and cultivate. Om Santi Santi
