“I had the pleasure of doing a 200 Yin Yoga TTC with Alex and her team. All of them are amazing people who love to share their knowledge, I got so much information! Meridians, asanas, the human body and more. There wasn’t a question that was left unanswered. One of my favourite parts was that we began teaching ourselves as soon as possible, so we got to practice the theory first-hand multiple times. Their energy created a safe space to succeed and fail. Every student’s class was analyzed in order to give us a better understanding of how to improve according to our abilities and personalities. In the end what I loved most was that Alex and Eva are truly passionate about what they’re doing and are generous with sharing it.”

“Feel super blessed to have had this opportunity to do a yin yoga therapy course. We live in such a yang (active) world. Always on our toes. So to learn and apply the concept of yin in life feels like a real treat. As I give vinyasa classes and I really loved practicing yin and I’ve found this combination of vinyasa and yin to be beautiful. They go really well together.

To get a deeper understanding from a real acupuncturist (Alex) and understand how the meridian (energy) lines work and how they are connected to the different organs and what are the emotions attached to it was  a brilliant bonus! Specially since I’m also into bodywork. This was giving me a deeper insight to the anatomy from oriental medicine perspective. I have learnt and touched concepts that were “beautifully” integrated! 

Forever grateful and SO in love with Alex! 

She is a extraordinarily wonderful guide and creates such a serene and safe space for all of us to feel our best, gain the most and guiding in the best possible way. By letting things just flow into its rightful space! Truly living the Taoist way of life! I just felt super humbled and extremely grateful to have been a part of this journey! Thank you BODY-MIND-SOUL CENTER 💙”

Tara Kurian – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in India

“Super grateful! To be honest, at first I was doubtful but something deep inside me told me that I had to go, so I did.

And I came back feeling reborn.

I know this sounds cheesy but I really feel like something clicked during this course and I started to understand what healing really means and what it feels like in the body. It was such an intense but beautiful journey.

The location is just perfect, I still remember the first yoga class we had and I did not want to close my eyes because the sight was just to beautiful, jungle trees (+ monkeys! :D) all around.

I immediately felt save, accepted and inspired. Mostly because of Alex and her loving vibes but also the other teachers, they are all very special with a lot of knowledge. I could feel this course coming from the heart, all so well organized and taken care off. That’s probably why this experience also went straight into my heart where it took a very special place.”

Lieke Vernooy – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands

“An experience of a lifetime! It’s hard to find the words to describe this training. It was a mix of challenging, soul searching, beautiful, safe and so many other things. I truly feel so many of us came out the other side with a different view on life and yin yoga.

Alex has such a beautiful approach to TCM and yin yoga, and she teaches it in a way that challenges the experienced and makes it understandable for beginner. The teachers are all very knowledgeable and inspiring.

I loved every minute of my time here, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a yin yoga training.”

Marte Nerdahl – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Norway

“I had been teaching yin as a self-taught practitioner for several years and felt the calling to be trained and confident in what I knew.

This retreat really stood out as a therapy program, that merged both western and eastern modalities. I really liked that Alex was an acupuncturist and is very knowledgeable in healing, breath work, eastern medicine and yin.

The location was amazing and I felt the schedule was well put together and manageable. There were a lot of amazing additions to our training, such as Kirtan, sharing circles and even an acupuncture circle. The staff at our accommodation was SO nice and the view, WOW. Thank you Alex, it was wonderful!”

I was planning to come to Goa for training but attended the Online program instead. I must admit I am in awe of the vastness of the program teachings and I hope to come to Goa and meet in live. For some acupuncture too.”

“Impressive Wealth of Knowledge! I attended a 200 hour Yin Yoga online teaching course with Alex during Lockdown in June. It was wonderful to connect to Goa in India and Alex’s unique and uplifting teaching style from my office space in Dublin. I was impressed with Alex’s breadth of wisdom and knowledge of acupuncture, philosophy, Yoga and life. Her willingness to share expanded my heart and I looked forward to the days logging on. We were a group of five women from all over the world, meeting across time zones and language challenges. But we supported each other and felt safe. In the second week we each did a short teaching lesson which was a great way of learning. Alex provided detailed notes on the practice and origins of Yin Yoga which is a beautiful Yoga form. As a practicing Acupuncturist she has so much to offer in showing the healing of Yin Yoga postures alongside acupressure points. This is a very rich and nourishing course and has really deepened my practice. I hope to see Alex in Goa!”

ROSEMARY ST.LEGER – Yin Yoag Therapy Ambassador in Dublin, Ireland 

“The Yin Yoga Therapy Training with Alex was exactly what I was looking for. I gained a lot of knowledge about the traditional yin teaching (asanas, rebound), meridians, acupuncture points, Taoism and mindfulness. The training gave me a better understanding about myself and finding my own way of teaching.

Alex has a lot of knowledge and experience and is creating a nice group atmosphere. I definitely recommend this training.”

Julia Bauer – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Austria

“This has been the best journey on and off the mat ever. Alexandra is absolutely amazing as a teacher and a person. She is the guru of yin yoga and leads you so gently on your path to become a good yoga teacher while transforming yourself on a personal level at the same time.

All the detailed and high quality materials provided will guide you on your teacher journey when you get back home.

Alexandra works with amazing teachers who all embrace you and have so much knowledge to share.

The place in the jungle is absolutely stunning, the staff are so helpful and you feel safe. We enjoyed delicious daily vegetarian food prepared with love while overlooking the beautiful jungle and ocean.

I will definitely see if I can join Alexandra somewhere in the world another time. Thank you for everything and for sharing your wisdom with us all.”

Signe Bøtter-Jensen – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Denmark

“It was amazing. I had such a wonderful time and I’m so glad I decided to come. I absolutely loved the training.

Whether you are already a yoga teacher or not I am sure you will find value in this beautiful training and practice. I have learned so much from Alex and I like how she teaches (both yin classes and theory classes). I cannot say enough good things about the Yin Yoga Therapy Training with Alex. 

I had such a wonderful time during the training and I learned so much. I really think it was a fantastic teacher training and I’m looking forward to doing many more trainings and retreats with Alex in the future!”

Heidi Kokborg – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Denmark

“My Yin Yoga session by Alexandra was simply exceptional. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. I look forward to continuing my Yin Yoga practice.”

Manil Gupta, India

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the Yin Yoga  course. All I knew was that I loved the yin yoga classes I attended in Australia, and wanted to deepen my understanding and practice. The course surpassed my expectations, it was awesome.

Alex and Eva are deep with experience, knowledge and wisdom on yin yoga and how it relates to the body mind and soul. They expertly, clearly, and deeply cover the many elements of yin yoga, such as:
Asanas, the Meridian system, the Daoist 5 elements, the different organs of the body that the different Asanas effect. How to teach a class, and much more. This information is repeated, gently again and again, to help our systems absorb the information.
The class itself is held in such an encouraging, warm, and supportive holding that overcomes any fears that may come up, and makes you feel that anything and everything is possible. The class was not only deeply informative, it was also fun, and the class I was with became very connected and supportive of each other. New, deep friendships were made. I can highly recommended this course to everyone.”

Vinito – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Australia

“I was feeling a little fragile mentally due to some challenges in my life and after leaving another yoga training with a hostile environment.

I read many positive reviews about yin yoga with Alex and her website was informative and professional. I contacted Alex before I applied for a place and she was extremely helpful and provided me with all the information I needed to make my decision.

The experience was truly life changing. I didn’t want to leave and arrived home with fond memories. I highly recommend this training both for quality and excellent support. I may even go back and do it again!”

Rebecca Wahi – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador UK

“I was at a point of transition in my life with family now grown and husband recently retired.

I ended up choosing this training as I was drawn to it based on Alexandra’s credentials and philosophies. The teacher training seemed truly to address the whole person; body, mind & soul. I have had a developing interest in the yin side of yoga and Alex’s teaching and training materials provided me with everything I need to go home and confidently teach a yin yoga class.

My experience at this training was life changing, I was provided with a safe space to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. I truly appreciated the night circles where we had the opportunity to explore healing modalities through dance, art, etc. I was able to find more clarity in my mind and heart, while learning that the wisdom of the body is sometimes greater than the mind. With Alex’s unique background in acupuncture, I feel that I received a solid understanding of the meridians and Daoist elements which are the foundational aspects of yin yoga. I would readily recommend this course to anyone who is ready to grow in their practice and their life!”

Rebecca Evans – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA

“If you are “a picky seeker as I am “looking for the top quality teachers that will guide you on your path– you do not have to look further no more. You are on the right spot here – In BODY-MIND – SOUL CENTER with Alex and her team of amazing teachers. Alexandra’s energy +deep knowledge of yin yoga are unprecedented and she shares more than that with you. She cares about your well being and she wants you to get the best experience possible.

As the name says (yin yoga therapy) – it is more than a training. It is a journey of self-exploration and path of self- healing at the same time, (and thanks to all teachers) in the safe space, where you can allow yourself to “let go of“.
Quality of the program is exceptional. Fantastic point is that students start teaching practise from 2nd week of the course – so there is lots of room for practice and picking up the practical details of teaching. The curriculum was divers and beside yoga philosophy, history and yin yoga practice, we learned different forms of meditations and breathing techniques.

The whole experience is intensified by the presence of the jungle. Thanks to Alex we were allowed to become part of the especially beautiful environment and share the space with all kinds of fascinating creatures.
The words can not express my gratitude to Alex and all the teachers present on my training – Jenny, Patrycja, Eleonora, Manjeet – you all are my inspiration. Hope I can carry and share the knowledge you shared with me. Namaste 🙂 “

Petra Pekarova – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Canada

Like for most people all my plans of 2020 got an unexpected twist and turned out very different. My name is Kathelijne, I’m originally from Holland but live in Luxembourg (Europe) I am a yoga teacher since 2019, qualified in Hatha and Ashtanga. My favorite quote , probably the one I use the most in my classes is « the only constance in life is change » Buddha. Changes in life are for a lot of people very difficult to handle, especially the unexpected changes. We all had to learn to deal with them for the past year and yoga is definitely a great tool to adapt more easily to changes, because we gain in flexibility and strength in our body and mind. I was supposed to travel to India in March 2020 to complete my 300hrs training and seeking for more experience in Yin Yoga, as I am drawn by the therapeutic aspect of yoga. Well, those plans did not work out. Instead Corona arrived to us and before we knew what was going on, we where all locked down. Our studio in Luxembourg closed, like everything else and we switched to online classes. This scared me a lot in the beginning, but turned out to be a very great option and we even reached more people this way, as everyone could practice from home, nationally and internationally. And when then all the sudden Alex’s training appeared I did not hesitate and directly booked the training, without any regrets! 

Alex is a great and fun teacher, extremely experienced and very knowledgable. She gives many examples that are easy to refer to in your daily, personal or professional life. She takes time to repeat things as many times as needed and pushed us to remember the theory 😉 I did not know much about Yin Yoga and basically nothing about the meridians, after the training I felt like I absorbed a whole new library and I am so grateful for all the experiences and wisdom Alex shared with us.

We had a very small group, only 4-6 people,  so it was very familiar and we had enough time to ask all the questions we needed to be answered.
If you are looking to enrich your knowledge, rather for your personal or professional life, about Yin and the meridians I absolutely recommend a training with Alex. Our training was only 50hours but it felt like we got material for a 200hours training! It also felt very refreshing learning from a european woman, this was a big change for me compared to my 2 first trainings held only by indian men 😉 No offense and I’m not saying that one is better than the other, just different, a bit less traditional and strict. I felt very inspired and empowered to learn from such a strong women 😉 Thank you again Alex and I am looking forward to meet you for real in Goa…one day 🙂 distant hugs and much love, Kathelijne”

“Don’t think, just come! I highly recommend this Yin Yoga teacher training. My month spent in Goa was incredibly enriching.

“Alex has an in-depth knowledge of meridians and acupuncture and this validates the yin yoga course she offers. It was a brilliant experience for me, hard work but well worth the results in the end.
