Course Timeline:

The approach of Shanti Atma is real and well balanced!

This is a proper course, after which you feel confident about your practice and the knowledge gained. The teachers are present with you all the time 100%. Meaning they are concerned with everyone understanding and sharing proper and accessible knowledge. I probably jumped into learning about Yin Yoga, so taking this course allowed me to level up experience and knowledge . It lightened up a few key areas of my yin teaching that my students appreciate a lot. I have great feedback! Great school and team! I would go back on training any day!

Online course is perfect!

I have absolutely LOVED week 1 of the course. The way you present it and the speed of your voice is just so perfect, really above and beyond what I expected!

Amy, Australia

I am so glad that I did this course!

I just slipped into a trance. You are an amazing yin teacher and I can already tell I am so happy that I did this. I did not know this much about fascia at all as we didn’t go through it on my last yin training.


Francesca, UK

AMAZING! Life changing . Motivating . Self-Empowering . Quality . Quality . Quality

I found it difficult to compare the price that was double what I paid in India for my 200 hour course. If I had known the quality of the course and the teaching I would have easily justified the price without hesitation. I didn’t know if I was going to like the teacher but got over this after a scroll on Instagram. I gained a lot of confidence in knowing how flexible you can be with Yin Yoga in order to let your true self shine through to help change lives (in self and in others). I 100% recommend this course – YES! Love & Light, Love & Light, Love & Light. See you soon! Michelle, Australia

I love the structure

Thank you for this course. I love the structure of it, the way you explain everything and the way it makes me feel.  I learned a lot in only two days, that I already used in my class.. 

Marthe, Norway

My students can already feel a difference! 

I really learned a lot. I have so many pages of notes. I am so excited about this journey. It is so nice to have the feedback and chat about everything I am going through like this. It is just so nice to have your teaching!
