    An amazing experience that I would warmly recommend. The location is peacefull and beautiful, there is plenty of healthy and tasty food and the accomodation friendly. The teachers- Gerry, Iain and Anna are the best. 3 different styles, but each one really good. I am very happy for choosing this course, Yoga was serious, authentic. I learned a lot of things and I would come back for another course.

    Instruction is great; very good yoga and very good quality of instructors. You learn a lot of interesting and useful things for teaching yoga, as well as for your personal practice. And the food is delicious....

    The location is also really good, a self contained Spanish village full of nice people and very close to the coast.

    Inhoudelijk interessant. Verschillende docenten. Alle aspecten van yoga kwamen aan bod (zoals asana's, chanten, meditatie en filosofie). Ontzettend leuke en hechte groep studenten. Goed eten en accommodatie. Mooi dat we de vrijheid hadden en kregen om in het dorp ook onze eigen ding te doen.

    De theorielessen waren voornamelijk monologen van twee uur zittend op de grond. Interessant, maar voor de concentratie en de stijfheid die ontstond in het lichaam was afwisseling (bv bespreken in subgroepjes) beter geweest.

    Was handig geweest als we van tevoren meer geïnformeerd waren. Bijvoorbeeld over het (avond)programma.

    I loved the location, the small Spanish village is just perfect for a retreat. I loved the quality of the teaching and the lessons we did at the beach! The food was just Amazing. I am not vegan however with the vegan food provided I haven't missed anything at all. I am going back next month to volunteer, I simply fell in love with this experience!

      ''My yoga teacher training with SYM was fantastic. The focus on alignment and a whole body approach ensures the course contents facilitate the learner with a safety conscious awareness when leading their own class.

      Gerry, Anna and Ian ensured all lessons were detailed while providing individualised support where needed. Additionally they were supportive and encouraging at all times.

      Thanks SYM for a great first step into becoming a yoga teacher.''

      ''My study with SYM was more than a training course!

      I had the chance to study with Gerry, Anna and Iian, all life long learners, highly qualified, passionate, compassionate and inspiring teachers.

      Over these three intense weeks, I learned :

      a lot about myself, my limitations as well as my body’s endless resources

      necessary skills to ensure my classes will be well organised, paced in accordance with my students

      how to make sure my classes will be interesting and safe

      how to include chanting and meditation in my daily practice and teaching

      the founding elements of Yoga philosophy and yoga psychology

      SYM YTT team made sure we had perfect accommodation, all logistics aspects covered as necessary, healthy meals in a warm and beautiful environment.

      Classes were perfectly paced, giving us free time after long days of study and practice.

      Today, I feel profound joy and balance in my daily practice and teaching.''

      ''I attended the course a couple of years ago. It's in a great place. The food cooked by Ela was fantastic. I met some incredible people. I found that Gerry's profound understanding of shiatsu gives him a unique and fascinating take on many aspects of yoga teaching and practice. A great course which I highly recommend.''

      ''I'm so blessed to have taken my 200hour yoga teacher training in Cervera Del Maestre with Gerry as the head instructor. Just over 3 weeks of training I found myself very centred and inspired I would do this training all over again with no hesitation. I highly recommend this training for anyone who wants to teach yoga and immerse themselves in the Spanish culture! It's incredible and an experience I'll never forget.''

      ''The 200 hour teacher training in Spain was satisfying and fulfilling in every single way. It was exactly what I was looking for. The teachers explain in detail how to get safely in and out of each pose and what the correct alignment should be like…. And all that in a very relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Not to mention the food: I have never eaten such healthy, quality food in my entire life. An experience never to forget!''

      ''Gerry's unique esoteric knowledge ties Indian philosophy to the Western traditions, making the theory very interesting and relevant to our own ancient culture. The deep understanding of the chakras and prana taught opened up a different dialogue for me allowing for a truly profound experience. The asana practise was challenging, therapeutic and energising, and i took away a wealth of knowledge to improve my practise and help others with. The food, people and location were all wonderful and i highly recommend this course for all those ready to embark on their yoga journey".
