The beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Tuscany was an amazing experience. The training is a good mix of physical practice and theory, including both anatomical studies and yoga philosophy. It was an intense program, but I went home with so much knowledge, new friends and good memories. Peter and Tuscan Fitness did a great job all round. Classes, accommodation, food, help with directions etc. I recommend this course if you’re thinking about becoming a yoga teacher or just want to go deeper with your own practice.
