    Great program for those willing to dive deep into yoga, teaching, and personal development.

    out of 13h training a day we only did like 10% asana practice. The rest of the time we had to listen a lot about personal development (not anatomy or something really related to yoga) and about the power of sharing our thoughts to a community. Also we were Kind of forced to share personal thoughts and experiences otherwise the teacher wanted to know why you don't participate. It was more like a psychotherapy than a yoga teacher training. People were crying a lot and the mood was really depressing (nothing you want to experience in your Holidays) I left after day two and I had to leave within two hours!! They didn't even give me time to figure out what to do now as I was on my own. Also I did not get any refund! not even for the accommodation or the food. Therefore I can not recommend this place and teacher training.

      My experience with Real Evolution Yoga has been one of evolution for sure! The adventure has caused me to see myself and anyone I meet through open eyes. Im grateful to have this new way of seeing people and life. On my adventure with Real Evolution Yoga, I have become a student, a teacher, a traveler, a friend, and through these eyes I am able to see this mirrored in everyone I meet. This is really just one example of my experience. I have too many to share in this one testimonial, really!

      The best part about Real Evolution Yoga is that its never ending. The simple teachings are impactful and can relate in so many situations, and can be applied everywhere. Experiencing Real Evolution Yoga through teacher training programs has provided me a wide selection of tools to be able to live in a way that is flexible. Working with Real Evolution Yoga, I have become flexible in my body, in my heart, and in my mind. As I move forward on my journey, I will take REY with me and share it because I now have that gift to give. Thank you, Real Evolution Yoga!

      I went to be trained to be a yoga instructor. The education I received was so much more than that! I went to the 200-hour Real Evolution Yoga teacher training on a last minute whim. I felt it was a good time to step away from some things in my life. I had been through a divorce, lost three family members within a year, moved, and started a business. I walked away from the Real Evolution Yoga teacher training as a better and much more grounded person.

      I feel my training not only prepared me for becoming a yoga teacher but also prepared me to live a full authentic life! I am so very excited to attend level 3! Hali and Kevin are beautiful souls and I am truly grateful for their mentorship and their love and support.

      I have had the incredible opportunity to take both stage 1 and stage 2 with Hali and Kevin, and I feel like it is one of the most powerful things I have ever done for myself on a personal level. This is an amazing program that yogis and non-yogis can benefit from participating in. Hali and Kevin have developed an exceptional program. I guarantee that participants will leave with a feeling of endless possibility, ready to teach inspirational yoga.

      Thank you both so much. You are amazing. The way you guys go with the flow of the course, based on what is needed, is a great inspiration in itself. I have never felt so supported. I am ready to disrupt business as usual. Keep shining.
