"An amazing journey through the chakra's with Kata!"

I really liked the villa, very beautiful. The lessons were eye-openers. Kata has great knowledge and I have learned a lot from her teaching. My inner growth went from stressed to inner sweet smile again! The food was amazing, thanks to Anni! My belly felt so nice and soft after these 5 days. And the surprises were wonderful, loved our singing by the pool together. It all really opened me up in a way I could not have expected. Like Kata said on my last day: We should have made a picture of you of before and after...

"Yin Yoga Teacher Training "

Everything! The location and house were perfect and the food was simply amazing! Both Kata and Erno went out of their way to make the whole experience as relaxed as possible and shuttled us around during breaks into Santa Eulalia if we wanted. It was wonderful to learn so much from them both and in such a calm manner. We were quite a small group which made this week very intimate and even more special. I will definitely be returning and soon! Thank you so much.

"The best teacher training in the world !"

What I have learned during this teacher training is priceless . The dedication and energy of our teachers was phenomenal . It is like the other part of the jigsaw in yoga. Bringing more softness and care to the practice . The location was stunning with regular visits to the beach. Although the pool location was stunning .Im booking again to do the next module in March .

"Life Changing! "

Kata is an incredible teacher who is so talented and passionate about what she does. I took her training not knowing what to expect and it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. The course content was interesting and compelling, the yoga practice and instruction was great, and the overall environment was really something special. I feel so lucky to have learned so much about yoga, meditation and self love from Kata and Erno, I highly recommend this training!

Tessa Witchell

from Spain, April 2018

The life changing magic of this yoga teacher training lies in how authentic and well-delivered these three weeks were. I came across the yin and yang 200hr YTT and held a certain expectation that was exceeded in many ways. Kata's approach, with her (what seems like) endless knowledge, allowed me to learn more than I could have ever thought possible.

Many friends who have completed a 200hr can't believe how much was packed in. Going in, I was nervous about being too shy or not good enough. That was quickly washed away in the gorgeous setting, surrounded by like-minded souls, eating scrumptious healthy food, and being taught by the down to earth Kata and Erno. If you're reading this and thinking about doing this course, I can't recommend it enough. I'm already planning on when to come back to be taught by the unique, intelligent and wonderful Kata!

I truly feel like I have made friends for life and the mix of different backgrounds and yoga experience was never an issue here as Kata facilitated a very inclusive and safe space for us to all learn, and teach each other. The theory was taught through so many forms that I just drank it all in everyday. The amount of practical work was perfect and enough to have me already confident to teach a full class. This YTT allowed me to discover a strength inside of me that I'm so excited to now share out in the world.

"A healing journey to myself"

Kata and Erno created a beautiful space to learn about YIN Yoga. To me everything was perfect and complete, I loved the oneness of rituals and teachings, sharings as a group and finding the inner balance also with many personal insights. I learned a lot and also feel being empowered to offer my own YIN classes now. It was an amazing inner journey. Thank you so much!!

"Short but sweet"

Having attended the Yin Yoga teacher training in December 2017 I found that the venue was far better than I imagined it would be and I felt very lucky to be part of such a special group of people. The training was thoughtfully planned and some sessions were also practiced in interesting beautiful locations, including an open cave and during sunset and sunrise.

Erno and Kata worked well together to create a safe friendly environment where we could relax and learn the different facets of Yin yoga.

Diana created healthy meals every day with vegan and vegetarian options and was very mindful of my food allergies. Breakfast was also delicious and thoughtfully prepared by Maiika.

Zeer warme mensen, met een grote kennis voor hun vak !

Daisy Dirickx

from Belgium, December 2017

First of all, a big shout out to Kata and Erno for creating such a loving environment for us to learn and grow in. Thank you for the beautiful, gentle, soft and nurturing atmosphere. I loved both your energies. I am truly grateful for what I learned and for how you took care of us as a group and as individuals. In the beginning, the training felt more like a retreat than like a proper teacher training (although, by the end of the week that changed a bit ;)), but in hindsight I realise that was exactly what I needed.

Secondly, the food was AMAZING. It was so good I had to tell our cook Diana about it every single meal. Every day, she made us delicious, wholefood vegan dishes with awesome homemade desserts. Yum yum yum!

Third, the location was great too. The training was during winter in Ibiza, so it wasn't super hot and we didn't spend our afternoons at the beach, but I had nice walks in the area and enjoyed every bit of sun and fresh air I could get. Ibiza for sure has a lovely vibe going on, and I'm thankful to have enjoyed all its elements.

Thank you again for a beautiful, healing and nurturing week. I will never forget it, and hope to see you again for another training.

Much love

"Amazing YTT and grounding experience"

The training, the location and the house was really beautiful. The food was incredible vegan cuisine/ very impressive! The group of people attracted to this training as well made it an unforgettable experience. Kata and Erno are wonderful human beings. They put themselves personally into the training, and it really feels authentic and much more special than I would have ever expected from a YTT.

"Great learning experience!"

- the training itself, which is to me most important, and this was very good!

- the food, delicious!

- Kata and Erno did their best to meet everyone's needs, even willing to drive people around to Santa Eularia, beach, or hippy market during free time.

Thank you, Kata and Erno for a wonderfull learning experience!

Erno & Kata are fantastic teachers - so knowledgeable, caring and enthusiastic. The course was interesting and the setting was perfect. A nice balance of learning and free time to enjoy the island. The food was absolutely delicious! I left feeling like I'd been on a retreat but with the bonus of achieving a new teaching skill.

"Amazing unforgettable experience"

Everything about this course was fantastic. Kata and Erno are the most lovely people and cannot do enough to make your experience the best possible. They are really genuine people and I can't wait to do another of their courses and a retreat.

Our group connected so well and really embraced the teachings, supported each other throughout and great friendships have been made.

Delving deeply into yin yoga through this course has been money well spent and I would highly recommend it.

"Very meaningful experience "

Kata and Erno are very dedicated to their work and are very supportive of everyone's learning experience. Between them they have a huge amount of knowledge about yoga, breathwork, Chinese, medicine, healing, and more. The days were well planned to give a balanced learning experienced and personally I liked that there was some flexibility to adapt to the mood of the group and the weather. I certainly found the experience to be a worthwhile step on my spuritual and physical journey. Plus I learned a lot about mudras that I didn't know or expect. I left feeling empowered to teach Yin, putting a focussed sequence together with intent, also deepened in my own practice,

"Phenomenal Experience *"

Where to even begin ! I took this training for more than one reason, but mainly to learn how to heal my body after living with a lot of pain for too long. A friend who does bodywork recommended it to me, and I cannot say enough how blown away I was (and still am) of the entire experience. Life changing doesn't even touch it ! Kata and Erno are unbelievable teachers, but more importantly, unbelievable people. They both lead by a grounded example in a way that is both inspiring and healing at the same time. They were incredibly supportive for each one of us, and we were a big group. They were 110% available for us whenever we needed anything or had any question or issue or simply needed a listening ear. They were able to hold space masterfully individually and for the group. I learned more in this training than I had expected, and just after a week left feeling like I was finally ready to fall back in love with myself. Yin yoga was new for me, and even though most of the woman there had more experience than myself, we all flowed very well together and I was able to metabolize the information with ease. Kata and Erno paced the training really well- it never felt like too much information or too much practice- it was all very balanced. All of us taking the course became connected very quickly- friendships that will last a lifetime. There really are not enough great things I can say about it... An irreplaceable experience, I am forever grateful for my new teachers and friends :)

"Amazing experience"

Kata was a wonderful, positive and approachable teacher. The yin teacher training was informative, inspiring and I left Ibiza feeling confident in my ability to teach yin yoga to others. It was lovely to also experience yoga nidra and some flow, in addition to the yin practices.

The accommodation was stunning and fully equipped with all the essentials that you needed!

I left Ibiza feeling calm, relaxed and empowered. I cannot recommend this teacher training enough!

"Still in Bliss"

I felt immediately peaceful with arrival at the location, my room was amazing and I looked forward every morning to sit in our area by the pool to meditate & practice... even tho I'm not a morning person :) I found Yin Yoga to be exactly what my mind & body needed, and Kata such a strong, loving, knowledgeable open teacher & facilitator. I usually shy from connecting with others right away (my own guarding myself issues) but loved how the process unfolded and I felt comfortable opening up, and then interacting with so many different but important personalities and personal journeys. I miss my temporary family...

"Heavenly balance, experienced guides"

Kata and Erno were living examples of what they taught. Gently but very effectively revealing their insights gleened by applying the principles and techniques to their own life journeys- inspiring !

I loved the balance between theory and practice. And the food was absolutely fabulous ! The cook infused not only healthy ingredients but love into each dish which she presented like works of art !

"Wonderful Teacher Training in Ibiza! :)"

I (yoga-beginner) came just back from Ibiza after a wonderful Yin-Yang TT (200h) as the happiest person in the world! :)

What eventful and exciting weeks full of positive energy, love, spiritually moments and best instructive learning-program (both practical and theoretical part - love the 5 element theory!) - in a perfect balance! Beautiful surroundings (very nice villa/accommodation with a marvelous and enchanting garden, near Santa Gertrudis) delicious vegan cuisine (thx to our great chef Diana!) and the best and most loving teachers you could wish for a Yoga Teacher Training! Kata and Erno are excellent teachers and wonderful people! They gave and share so much of their extensive knowledge and experience with all their love and passion to all of us on this 'exciting journey'! They made these weeks perfect and together with a harmonious group (wonderful and lovely people from all over the world - miss and love you, guys! 💛) to an unforgettable time! Meditative sunsets in a magic and energetic place (Es Vedrà) and amazing sunrises near Santa Eulalia (& 'sun salutations' practice) by the sea let melt together everything of the whole 'package' incl. nice excursions (Ibiza Town/Santa Eulalia) with all the spectacular colors of Ibiza...

Thanks you so much, Kata and Erno, for every loving moment of these unforgettable three weeks! 'Let love move you' and practice Yoga every day! ;) (by Kata)

Love and Blessings, Martina

"xxxxAusgezeichnet"

Fantastic! Erin Terziff is a rare jewel amongst teachers. She brought a level of excellence and quality to the Teacher training that was much more than just training us to be Hot Yoga teachers. Through her expertise in the process of teaching teachers she not only made sure we completely understood our material and the sequences and understanding behind it but brought a transformative path of growth to the whole process. Together with Katas lovely co directing it was really a life changing experience and I am sure I am speaking for the whole group when I write this as we really all were as One and everyone grew so much in the process. And we enjoyed two intense Hot Yoga trainings a day immensely!!!

"Merveilleuse expérience."

Kata est une femme adorable. On est tout de suite séduit. Par sa vivacité, sa belle intelligence, sa douceur et sa gentillesse. Elle partage sa passion avec beaucoup d'amour. La formation était incroyablement enrichissante. Précise. Formidablement bien organisée. Petit à petit on comprend, on expérimente,on ressent et on partage. Dès mon retour j'ai pu mettre en pratique ce que j'avais appris. Les répercussions sont étonnantes. Et mes élèves sont à la fois émerveillés et ravis de découvrir ce que m'a enseigné Kata. Un grand merci du fond du coeur à Kata et Erno qui ont toujours été si joyeusement à notre écoute. Allez découvrir le yin à leur côté, c'est magique. A recommender absolument!!!!

"Left feeling very Balanced"

I loved this training. For me it was the frst time to do a teacher training so I loved the different aspects of Yoga, the overall knowledge about the body and psyche.

Getting up at 7 in the morning to meditate or do a morning practice, Palo santo smells in the air, lovely food and interesting experiences. I loved the teaching, for me it was good that we got a lot of explaination about the elements and all the postures. I made some great beautiful friends here, loved the house and ofcourse the ibiza hippy market :) This teacher training gave me a very good foundation on wich I hope to build a new future! I consider every person in my life as a teacher, and am very gratefull for the teachers I've had at the RIse and Shine yoga retreat.

I also loved the yoga nidra wich was completely new for me!

All over great people, delicious food, lovely practice, great teaching! Loved the experience!

"Magical"

As it was one of my first steps into this kind of experience, I can tell you, I'm a lucky person, that I found Kata and Erno offering their knowledge and enthusiasm in teaching on beautiful Ibiza. I felt safe accompanied by them during the whole stay. By taking us to magical spots like calm beaches and wood surrounded roof tops to feel the energy of the elements in meditation to dive deep into the Yin Space, I opened up to allow transforming inner and outer experiences. All in a joyful atmosphere, through feeling, they love what they do. Not enough space to mention everything here ... a private concert from their friends from Hang in Balance, accompaigning one of our sessions, super delicious organic food 3 times a day by wonderful chef Jila energized me, beautiful villa, lots of knowledge about meridians, anatomy and energy, soulbreath- & yoganidra-sessions by amazing Erno helped me to calm down, guidance through Yin Practice by passionate shining teacher Kata...I loved it...helping through her wisdom and presence to connect deeper to myself! Wonderful! Thank you! Ingrid

The Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Ibiza was great! In a beautiful place with great yoga teachers and healthy food. The course was truly revealing, both physically and mentally, and Kata and Erno have a clear and inspiring way of teaching. I learned a lot about Yin Yoga. Theory and practice were well balanced. After I completed the course, I felt well prepared to teach. I already started teaching, and sharing Yin Yoga with other people, brings me a lot of joy. Thank you very much, Kata and Erno. You are great teachers.

I had the best yoga sessions i‘ve ever had and also learned so much about how to teach others but also for my own practice! I came there to improve my own practice and now after this great training i really also want to teach. And the food we had was so so so delicious!

Facebook Rise & Shine Ibiza Yoga Retreat Center

I've just completed the 200 hour Yin/Yang Teacher Training and am delighted I made the choice to come to Ibiza to learn from Kata and Erno. If you are looking for a very personal, authentic, practical yet also very spiritual, fully-rounded training in a relatively small group with amazing food, great accommodation and engaged and lovely teachers then I fully recommend this TTC. The yoga that we did was some of the best I've ever done and the 5 element approach - looking to build classes the meet specific needs (more joy, more calm...) was very practical and seemed to work based on how we all reacted to the classes! The Vinyasa approach taught by Kata for the Yang component was delivered in such a way that we all grew immensely in confidence and were building and delivering our own classes with just a couple of weeks - having fun along the way. Kata is a natural born teacher and leader - delivering a very intelligently structured course in a personal, heartfelt, warm and practical way. Inspiring while teaching, providing the space and support for students to grow in every way. Erno will be a famous meditation guru one day! You'd pay a lot of money to have him as your personal meditation coach and his calm, kind teaching presence throughout was a joy. Thanks guys.

I participated in Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Ibiza in Feb 2018. It was an amazing self inner journey experience, that helped me connect to myself better and get to know myself. The content of the training was very good, we covered a lot during these 6 days. I left Ibiza with lots of solid practical and theoretical knowledge so I can share my insights during my teachings. Kata and Erno are amazing teachers- with lots of knowledge, experience and well skilled to pass it on to others. And I can't forget about the amazing cook and food that we had during the stay- so healthy and yummy!
