Testimonials – Yoga Alliance RYT 200

The Shades of Yoga TTC (RYT 200) was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. On a practical level, it took my yoga practice to a whole new level in terms of fitness and strength, and taught me how to teach yoga in a safe and relevant way.

On an emotional and spiritual level, it opened up my heart to evolving through life’s challenges, unplugging from things that no longer serve me and letting the universe guide me along my path. The group discussions taught me as much, if not more, than the textbook content and all materials were taught, presented or opened up for discussion in an accessible and down-to-earth way.


I was always a little intimidated to do a TTC but the spirit in which the Shades course is facilitated allowed me to relax, to be fully present and get the most out of the learnings. I have subsequently started teaching yoga classes and I feel confident in my knowledge to introduce beginners to postures and make corrections due to the amount of prac teaching you do in the course. I also feel I have a wealth of material to draw from when formulating my lesson plans.

The Yoga of Food gave me a great ‘taste’ of eating for wellbeing and its something I’d like to learn more about. Although I am still at the beginning of my yoga teaching journey, I am really grateful for the kickstart Shades of Yoga gave me, I can’t believe how much we learnt, discussed, laughed about, cried about and grappled with in 200 hours…thanks Trace, Aine and Kat and everyone at Taksu spa for an amazing month
