I will be always thankful for the incredible amount of knowledge that Ulu Yoga teachers shared with me as students, I think much more than I was expected to recibe. I will recommend this course to other people, 100%. It was an amazing journey, also because it was an online course, but I always felt I was in the class with them. Thank you so much.
Rebecca Visintainer - July, 2020
This was such a great experience. Although the format had to be modified due to the global pandemic, I very much appreciated how tailored this teacher training was to each person. The ability to move at one's own pace allowed time to process and really grasp the information. Everyone was kind and helpful and had a strong ability to present complex information in a clear way. In the end, I really enjoyed the virtual format and did not feel it lacked in any way as compared to a retreat teacher training format.
Ruth Baker - July, 2020
I think that ULU Yoga did a great job at adapting to the online learning platform in a short space of time. They listened to students and responded with patience and kindness. There was a wealth of knowledge from the diverse teachers involved and certain teachers clearly worked to build a sense of community amongst the students despite the distance between us and differing time zones. The flexibility suited me and I was always met with kindness and support from admin staff as well as teaching staff.
Keiko Oka - July, 2020
I sincerely thank you for all of your support and efforts to put together such an incredible program while you must be busy answering all kind of questions and inquiries. The wisdom from all the teachers gives a lot of hope for me and my family. Corona has challenged all of us, but your program has shown us how to turn the difficult time into a great learning opportunity, which I’m sure is healing for many of us in this time of uncertainty. I’m all inspired by your pioneer spirit of adapting quickly to the ‘new normal.’ Very much forward to the new videos. Thank you again.
Rebekah Burn - June, 2020
ULU yoga school is a wonderful place to learn and grow and I would recommend them as an excellent school with a rich tapestry of knowledge and a great deal of love to share. The team are fantastic and have made me feel so welcome during my training. The classes and lectures have been inspiring, interesting, beautiful, challenging, spiritual and have opened my heart. ULU has offered clear and constant communication, always responding to emails and messages. ULU worked tirelessly to help students and deal with technical issues. I hope to continue my yoga journey with these beautiful people in the future.
Nicole Lee - June, 2020
ULU Yoga's turnaround in this COVID-19 situation has been nothing short of extraordinary. I purchased a yoga training package from them for April 2020 at their Bali campus. As COVID-19 loomed, it was apparent that the course would not be able to materialise. ULU offered an incredible solution to me: they will honour the physical yoga teacher training when they're allowed to reopen, and they will maximise my April by offering me their new online YTT programme for free.
Every class was done live via Zoom and we had opportunities to meet and interact with each other, as well as yoga instructors. There is nothing like a live class. The discussions were always lively and insightful while the practices were inclusive and interactive. The graduation ceremony was amazing too. We were invited to close our eyes and guided through a fantastic visualization of our spiritual journey to yogi enlightenment. When I opened my eyes, I was touched that so many of the new students stayed on to congratulate us. It was very heartwarming. My heart is so full.
I have nothing but praise and admiration for my experience on this journey. I am thankful for the extensive number of live Zoom sessions we were given. They were above and beyond Yoga Alliance requirements and gave me an experience I'll be eternally grateful for. I will return to Ulu Yoga for their physical aerial teaching training when it commences. In the meantime, I encourage aspiring yogis to undertake their online courses without worry of quality compromise. My experience has been invaluable and I'm sure yours would be too.
