What Evita had to say:
"I had the best experience in my life. These journey will stay in my life forever. I enjoyed the place, the training, the food, the attitude - everything. Teachers are professionals and even if you would like to talk with them outside the training schedule - they will always find the time for you. Even now when I finished my studies, I still have a contact with teachers and I can ask advise. I would definitely recommend to do your YTT here. Amazing!"
