From our reviews, it looks like we're on the right path!

 

Here's what some of our past students and yogis have to say about their experience.

Lura was always available to pursue ideas, and was very generous with her knowledge and skills. I truly feel like she is a mentor.

 

I liked the program and it was easy to progress from simple to complex. My intention was to learn with an open heart, to learn to teach yoga in a way that is accepting, helpful and fulfilling to all people, body, mind and soul. I feel like I accomplished this during my time here. Yoga is a journey and this YTT has been wonderful.

 

The food was amazing! I have never eaten so well in my life.

I recently completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training course with Lura. Her patience, knowledge and caring approach made for a unique and growing experience. She goes out of her way to accommodate everyone and their individual needs and cares about each and every student. I wish I could’ve packed her in my luggage and taken her with me.

I enjoyed every step of the experience. You are by far the best teacher I have ever encountered in my life, please never change your approach: it is thoughtful, caring, loving but never out of bounds. The content was always interesting and I learned so much.

I found that the Yoga classes were inspiring, everything flowing and is built with a purpose. The theoretical part is deep, meaningful,and raises curiosity, very stimulating. I loved that you lead us here from such a personal perspective, incredible knowledge, and unemotional love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’ve learnt more than I could have imagined and gained so much more than I thought was possible.  Thank you! It was an eye opening and challenging month but I loved every minute of it!

 

Your teaching is perfect and I can’t thank you enough for everything you taught me. I really see all of the improvements and thanks to you I know know what it feels like to move my hips. Thank you so much it has been the best decision I ever made.

From England | Age 26

I relaxed and got away from the real world, let go of most of my worries and just focused on learning something new. My body feels great too. I understand now how important it is to be mentally ready for your practice and see how your body goes which just fascinates me.

No other teacher has taken the time to really adjust my postures. I would have continued to do certain postures all wrong. I feel confident in all the information I learned in the past few weeks.

From Japan | Age 31

I feel I have gained more than my initial intention that I set at the beginning of the program. I feel I learned how important pranyama is to use in asana, meditation, and our daily lives. Within the last month I have noticed the changes: I have learned to sit more comfortably and I can focus on the breath.

From South Africa | Age 18

Lura has created a yoga teacher training program to set you up to be an extremely successful teacher. Each day we learn a different part of the teaching process from the asanas to breathing and the philosophical teachings.

 

We started from the beginning by reviewing all of the poses and alignment. I learned immediately how much better my own practice will become by taking a step back from my years of practicing yoga and relearning the basics. During the free time we were given, Lura encouraged us to play on our mats and work with each other on the things we've learned to date. I left the training feel confident in my practice and in teaching beginner yogis to intermediate/advanced yogis. I'd recommend this program to anyone!

As someone with a fear of public speaking, I also feel like I have started to conquer my fears and definitely feel comfortable being at the front of the class.

 

Bringing my practice back to basics really reset my personal practice. Having integrity in my poses makes me feel stronger and more balanced. Also my meditation practice has started and I feel like I have a strong foundation to continue and to grow.

I think your program is great. I have learned so much on and off the mat. I think it was so clear how much energy you put into making sure we were okay and happy. Thank you for everything and I can’t wait for our paths to cross again in the future.

Lura was so accommodating and my fellow yogi students and I are now good friends. On top of that, Uvita is a beautiful location with a great community. I felt we learned so much over the course of the month from history to anatomy and of course the yoga practice of postures and breath, but also how to practice yoga in your daily life by living with loving kindness. I grew as a person, for the better, over this program with Lura. Very grateful.

Yoga Teacher Training Student - March 2018

From United States

Yes, my intentions were meet - but I feel I gained so much knowledge about yoga, anatomy, teaching, life. Really I have grown in self-love and confidence and I am very grateful for that.

My practice is strong and more balanced. So many minor corrections with my back and knees especially improved my practice. Also, learning not to overuse my flexibility; I have a much deeper understanding of my practice that I am excited to share.

I want to thank you Lura for everything. You were more than accomodating through the whole month and we are all so grateful for your strength and ability to keep positive and move forward.  This has been the experience of a lifetime and you are a huge part of why it will be remembered with fondness.

 

I feel I am really ready to teach and share my practice with confidence.

It was a very special month. I had a great time in Uvita at the Bienestar teacher training. Lura is very welcoming and really takes care of everything. She has a lot of experience with teaching yoga. I learned a lot and feel really comfortable to start teaching. We had a great group and we felt like a yoga family. I'm really thankful for the experience.

Yoga Teacher Training Student - March 2018

From United States

I had a perfect start to become a yoga teacher. I learned a lot about my practice, yoga and breathing. I learned a lot more about myself and dealing with a situation differently.

 

I feel that I have learned to practice for myself on a basic, healthy level. I found discipline in  my practice, meditation and living more healthy. 

I really had a great month I want to thank you for everything. You have a  lot of knowledge and I’m really happy that I chose your program.

Yoga Teacher Training Student - March 2018

From United States

I feel more grounded in the root core postures of asana/hatha practice. We broke down everything, corrected alignment and it strengthened me quite a bit.

I had a great experience. The content was 100% beneficial to me 100% of the time.

I cannot put to words how thankful I am to have been a part of your program for one of the bigger moments in my life thus far. Not just making my life goals come true, but finding myself and NEW goals.

There was such a wealth of information and knowledge I struggle to put into words how much I feel I am leaving this program with. I am incredibly grateful.

I found an invested instructor, a small group and a wonderful environment.

My yoga lessons with Lura were amazing. Her encouragements, attention to detail and subtle corrections made me improve during each session, while she gave me the empowering feeling that I could do it all. She might be the biggest gem in the Dominical area. If you're looking for a healing and balancing yoga experience while you're on holiday there, I completely recommend you contact Lura.

It is far more than her over-twenty experience as a yogini that made her guidance one of the best experiences of my life. Over the course of two weeks, Lura paid close attention to my personal challenges and addressed them carefully and thoroughly. She gently taught me all the poses, asanas, their purpose and benefits and how to combine them for a rewarding yoga experience.

Sivasana never sounded or felt so good. Located in the jungle listening to nature and the ebb and flow of the ocean is enough to make anyone happy. Add in one of the best classes I ever had.

What a blessing Lura has been to me. I retired from my job in the USA in 2013. The first goal on my "type A personality to-do list" was to learn how to meditate. I enrolled in a Mind Based Stress Reduction series of classes with Lura, complimented by yoga instruction. What an amazing journey this has been! I am a much better and conscious human being for doing so.

Yoga Student

The Yoga class I took with Lura was really great!! She is a really nice and warm-hearted yoga teacher. With her profound yoga knowledge she really helped me improving with breathing and postures only in one lesson and gave me advice no teacher told me before. I wish I had the time to take more classes with her!
