Joy & Ricardo are very experienced and inspiring teachers. They have put their heart and soul into this training. I liked the variety: practicing everyday, several times a day combined with detailed information about the asanas, adjustments, etc. We have learnt so much in these 24 days.
This training has truly been a life changing experience I am now so aware of both my body and mind and have learnt things about myself that I would have never without this training. Whilst I am now physically stronger, I am more proud of how much stronger I am mentally.
Finally I learned what breathing is about. This course really channel my life. It opened my eyes to totally new things. I'm so glad that I took this course. I have learned so much about myself and also about yoga. The course is intense and you have to put a lot of energy into it. But that is good because then you learn and understand more.
I like how strong I feel. I like how healthy body mind and spirit I feel. I like the practice space, I like the island and the beach and the people. I like that Joy and Ricardo have taught me so much about a wonderful practice that is for sure gonna be with me for my whole life. I am so excited about that.
The training was challenging and achievable at the same time. The teachers were informative and tried their best to provide a quality experience with the diverse conditions they had. When I began this program my knowledge was not profound nor deep I was very much a beginner. But now I can claim that I am a teacher as i feel awakened now.
This is by far the most challenging moment in my life. I have grown so much from this training. Many unexpected situations appeared and we have to find the ways to cope with them. With positive attitude, we can achieve anything in life. I feel blessed to be in this moment and appreciated everything that happened in this training.
I got so much more than expected! I practiced yoga for two years and here I found that was not yoga I did! This course opened up my mind and developed my grace in yoga. Good memories made. Our teachers Joy, Ricardo, and David spent a lot of effort to draw our interest in the topics.
I like the most form this TTC is Bandhas. My personal experience about this training was I enjoyed every moment! Teachers were friendly and everyone shared the love like they had known each other for a long time. From deep inside of me, I feet I have gained lots of positive energy and to be a yoga teacher, I'm happy to share my knowledge with others. Namaste: we are One.
I found It's Yoga Training to be a wonderful experience. I learned about all different aspects of Ashtanga Yoga and the origin. Although I do know the learning is jus the beginning I feel the organization is well structured and Joy and Ricardo are very knowledgable, attentive, and professional I am excited to continue my learning and exploration with Ashtanga Yoga and myself as an instructor.
The training challenged me to push myself and overcame my fear. The instructors, Ricardo and Joy, impacted valuable skills and knowledge, both for self-practice and teaching. Not only have I gained knowledge for teaching, but also learnt a lot for my own practice.
To walk into training like this requires, discipline, motivation and is sure to peel back the layers. But with the support and guidance from our teachers the things I have learnt about you and about myself has been a truly special journey. I am leaving the training with a head full of knowledge and the desire to learn more and a stronger more confident person has emerged. Thank you very much!
This experience opened my eyes to many things, self, others and the environment in which we choose to live. Although I was challenged I was able to seek strength inside myself and enlighten my vision of the world in relation to my inner being.
David….An incredible teacher, coordinator, facilitator and more. He kept everyone’s health and happiness in check. His energy and warm spirit helped everyone to enjoy and connect with one another as this training. He goes alone and beyond his job to make sure all needs are met and truly helped me during unexpected medical and health emergencies during my time in the training at koh phangan. Many thanks david.
The It’s yoga teacher training is an experience that changed me forever. When I signed up I wasn’t sure I even wanted to be a teacher and yoga to me was a great moment. Now not only do I feel prepared to teach and excited to teach, my understanding of myself. Something drew me to It’s yoga and I am forever grateful I followed that little voice that said to go.

Life changing! What an amazing exciting emotional energizing strong training. wonderful 24 days. I am transformed physically, mentally and most importantly spiritually . It’s Yoga has created something spectacular . I will be forever grateful and especially for Joy and Ricardo, who, with their wisdom, kindness, true inner power prove to be some of the best teachers I have ever come across. The most challenging past for one was learning to let go and accept, every day every moment I am stronger for it. Thank you
Marie Boisvert - October 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
An experience I will never forget. I found the It's Yoga system has a great balance of asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy. The training was both intense and energizing at the same time helping me to build a personal practice and the want to learn more. From day one you are encouraged to find your own voice and relate to yoga in the way it means to you, it also opened my mind to aspects of yoga I never thought would interest me like meditation. I learned to listen to my inner teacher and be more aware of my body.
Susan Henderson - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
This yoga course has been amazing! I have learnt so much. Joy, Ricardo and David are great teachers and have a tremendous wealth of knowledge. If you want to learn how to be the best yoga teacher you can be whilst improving your yoga practice then you should do the It’s Yoga course.
Irina - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
The teacher training course was amazing. Both, Joy and Ricardo are very knowledgeable and very professional. They make you feel at ease and comfortable to talk to them about anything you need.
Ambra - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
I loved it, it was fun, everybody was supporting and professional, and relaxed. I discovered lots about myself, and start seeing yoga in a more spiritual and self-discovering experience. I am so excited to start teaching, and share the mental and physical benefits of yoga. Speaking to people, it is the hardest and giving clear instructions. I know it will improve with practice. I need to feel confident in reaching, but I can wait to give my first class.
Laura Jane Melgueira - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
I have had one of the most amazing experiences in my life by far. It was everything and more than I could have asked for. I liked the way they structured the entire course. It is intense but there is never any pressure from the teachers. You are constantly encouraged to listen to your own body and mind. The structure of the course is perfect because they break it up in a way that it is never too much. As soon as you start to feel like things are getting too heavy something extremely fun and easy going is chucked in front of you to bring you back down to reality and know that actually everything is going to be just right. I have felt extremely supported, well guided and inspired by my teachers. They turn you into a confident yoga teacher without you even realizing – it’s like magic.
Andrea Galvez T. - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
The Yoga Teacher training was amazing and a wonderful experience. I learned a lot about yoga and it inspired me to continue to learn and practice. I also learned about humbleness and serenity from Ricardo. Joy, well so much joy!! Her energy and passion are inspiring and she was so helpful in every way, not just yoga. David is on top of everything and a great listener. It’s a great team where I felt looked after, loved and encouraged.
Saara - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
I had the idea of doing a teach training for quite a long time before actually doing it. I was looking for a new experience as well as some much needed time for myself. I got that plus so much more.
The three and a half weeks of training have not only taught me to become a yoga teacher, but taught me to see and understand yoga as a whole in a new and different way. I am bringing home so much more than just a certificate: I am bringing back a new version of myself.
Isaac Schulz - September 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
There is a wonderful place in this world to develop awareness and further your self practice, It’s Yoga Thailand! The teachers and program are wonderful, the location is fantastic and all this shared with fellow friends from around the world. Push yourself and learn to fly.
Ashleigh Garnault - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
Joy, Ricardo & David / The teachers have been amazing & invested so much time & effort into making sure the course is as relevant & productive as possible. Am very glad I chose It's Yoga!
Candice Martinez - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
"Resistance is futile" – I came with an open mind, and leave with an open heart, realizing that along the way the teacher was already there, just waiting to be discovered.
Karen Howie - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
What a fantastic teacher training! I looked at many Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga websites but It's Yoga Thailand' stood out for me. They are clear about how the training is run from day 1 right up to the last day. Joy + Ricardo are amazing teachers, they support your every need and with you their exceptional yoga knowledge. They are motivational and accept that we are all humans! (even on an off day!)
Antoni Timonowicz - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
The teacher training was well above expectations, the knowledge, skill and training of the yoga instructors was exceptional. My first yoga teacher training and I would recommend to anyone. I feel confident and have the knowledge now to start my teaching. The long days and training sessions pay off, my yoga practice now has grown considerably. I can now jump back and through and also do free standing hand stands. Above all I can take many learning on the mat to my life off the mat.
Gary Davis - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
This is a great Teacher Training. I have immense gratitude to Ricardo, Joy and David for the sincerity and generosity with which they teach. You can tell it comes from the heart. Not only do I feel confident in my ability to teach, but also my own practice has moved to an entirely new level. This is not a 200 hour course.....it is so much more! You leave the course still learning, still growing.
Alan Milledge - April 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
I joined the teacher training course to be the toughest but most rewarding experience of recent years. I was concerned that I would be too old (48) to manage a month of intense yoga plus the worried of technical information but I needing have worried Joy, Ricado and David I found to be very generous and patient and they built up the work load as we progress, also guiding us space and true way we needed it. With the games devised for the course we joined a very strong bond as a group which I hope last for years to come.
Lizzy Mulkey - February 2012 Yoga Teacher Training
The training was very welcoming and non- judgmental. It fostered all leave with patience and hummer. Creating a family vibe. I found myself opening up fears and old thought and behaviors that did not facilitate me.As the course went on I gained tools to observe, laugh at and let them pass.I feel cleares and move present and creatively awake again.I feel excited to be a yoga instructor and shore these tools.The most challenging part was getting up at 6am haha!and not pushing myself physically.but letting!!!! myself practice with modifications when exhausted and being okay with that,I learned more that way in the end creatively
