I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to either begin or continue their yoga education." - Kristen, Sadhana Yoga School Graduate, New Hampshire Program

Sadhana Yoga School

"I went to Fiji in September, 2014. Looking back now in 2016 I understand that this was the best yoga teacher training program I could have ever imagined. Not only did the training improve my physical practice, but I have now embraced Ayurveda and am a much, much healthier person than before my training. I even sent my 19-yr.-old son to Fiji in 2015 to do his 200 hr. training. He had a blast! Daku Resort is sweet." - Sue, Sadhana Yoga School Graduate, Fiji Program
