Having had a hiatus from yoga for about 14 months, after a bad retreat experience, I was really frightened to return to yoga – especially a retreat. Louisa was highly recommended by a teacher who I really connected with and admired so I took the plunge. I have attended many different types of retreats in many parts of the world and I can say hands down the Yoga Arts’ Byron Bay Hinterland Yoga Retreat was most probably the best I have ever attended. Louisa and her partner Nikhil are the best hosts one could ever ask for. The attention to detail is extraordinary. Everything from my accommodation, in the Rajasthani style tent, to the meticulous food we ate was done with care, love and passion. As mentioned I was frightened about starting yoga again, but from the very first session I felt I had come home and I realized this is the yoga and life I was so deeply connected to. Louisa and Nikhil brought me home to the yoga inside and I am truly grateful. The property is a true haven and should be, and most probably is, a National Treasure which must be experienced. A most amazing experience which has left me inspired and deeply appreciative. Thank you to Louisa and Nikhil for bringing me back to my inner yoga home and for being the best hosts in paradise.

The in depth study of Ayurveda was so valuable as it has given us a new set of skills and knowledge to incorporate into our own lifestyle, but also in our teachings. The intimate group of students allowed for in depth conversion with teachers and personal attention to each student. Accommodation at The Shala Bali added to the whole experience. Settled in the middle of rice paddies, it was a perfect setting and beautiful environment for meditation, Sadhana and attending lectures. Yoga Arts’ School has high teaching standards and the caliber of teachers it produces is a testament to the quality of work they do. It is clear that the school’s focus is on providing in depth, well rounded yoga education through a selection of the best teachers out there.

The level 2 Yoga Arts Advanced Teacher Training surpassed every expectation I had. The knowledge and wisdom from the teachers are the best in the world. I have taught yoga for over 10 years in studios, resorts, movie sets, colleges and community centers. I have attended over 100 workshops and conferences to continue my education. I can say with confidence and deep gratitude that I experienced more than a teacher training in Yoga Arts…it was a right of passage for me.
