Here is what our students say:

I am privileged to have been taught by Ganga Devi who is a totally dedicated and highly knowledgeable Yoga Acharya. This is a very special programme which has a lasting effect on all who attend and is a most excellent preparation for teaching. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone looking for an authentic, rewarding yoga teacher training course. Ganga's teaching is sincere, focused, disciplined and precise. She gives a great deal of individual attention to every student. This course is for people who are looking for an in-depth understanding of the yogic philosophy and lifestyle and an empowering preparation for teaching the asanas with confidence.

Wendy Bird, London, UK



"I thank our teacher Ganga with all my heart for sharing this path of awakening with us, in her uniquely personal approach: disciplined, all-embracing and loving. How exciting to practise yoga in these wonderful surroundings, in this well preserved nature! We had the perfect way to submerge ourselves in the spiritual work. Colours of the sea you hardly get to see anywhere else. Pure Water, pure air and the colours of all the beautiful flowers and trees around us. It suffused me with joy and peace. I especially loved the morning practise on the terrace of our house. But also the evening practise, the theory classes, the chanting and kirtan. And even our conversations about things and life, swimming in this beautiful sea and the nice tasty food... I came back as a more loving person. With more love for life and all its aspects. I'm in peace. "

Deborah Leonetti, Switzerland


“The training course provided me with an amazingly extensive foundation – enough to feed on for years. I am now a very happy and confident yoga teacher ready to go out and distribute the joy and inspiration of yoga to all.”

Veronique Chevalier, France

We have carefully selected the isle of Losinj for our yoga instructor training courses, as it has become a well-known climate resort worldwide, particularly famous for its asthma and allergy curing properties. An ideal place to restore perfect health, the most fundamental prerequisite for the practice of yoga.

Our aim is to provide our students with a complete foundation in the physical, mental, spiritual and social aspects of Yogic science. This course brings the age-old wisdom and authentic science of yoga to an enchanting island in the Adriatic, thereby combining the intuitional science of the East with the charm and powerful pranic energies of the Mediterranean Adria.

Our course consists of a wide range of topics and modules to educate yoga health professionals, yoga instructors, yoga students or anyone with an interest in the science of Yoga.

While providing a thorough practice of asana, mudra, bandha and kriya, the training probes beyond mere physical practice into the realm of subtle yoga and meditation and facilitates the awakening of the kundalini energy within. This course offers above and beyond the standard yoga teacher training a profound experience of meditation practice, the use of music in yoga and spirituality - Nada Yoga - yoga philosophy, history, anatomy and physiology, teaching methodology, sequencing, hands-on-adjustments, use of voice and lots more.

Isle of Losinj

The island of Losinj is the home of playful dolphins, pine forests, promenades, a profusion of fragrances and flavours. Its beauty will cast a spell on you whatever the season. Losinj is the habitat of a large group of bottlenose dolphins in the Northern Adriatic, which is indicative of an exceptional level of purity of the sea.
A bewitching fusion of centuries-old pine forests and sea, Losinj is the ideal place for restoring the body and mind. This has been known from time immemorial.

Losinj is one of the islands in Croatia belonging to the Cres-Losinj archipelago in the Kvarner Bay and with its 36 islands, islets and reefs, it is the largest group of islands in the Adriatic. Owing to its exceptional climatic features, already way back in 1892, it was proclaimed a health resort. A well preserved natural environment is a unique feature of the island; clean water and air, a mild climate, the diverse vegetation and aromatic scents have a deeply beneficial effect on everyone.

The Yoga Villa

The yoga teacher training on the isle of Losinj is held in a stunning villa, in a quiet residential area, minutes away from the beach. You may be lucky and spot dolphins in the bay during an early morning stroll.
The villa is situated in a pine forest offering views of the sparking blue sea. It is spacious and full of light and the rooms are of a good size and beautifully decorated. It has all modern amenities and is surrounded by lush, delightful gardens in which an abundance of Mediterranean and subtropical plants and flowers are flourishing. Yoga will be practiced outdoors on the largest of the four terraces, whenever the weather permits, or alternatively in the space indoors.

The in-depth classes and wholesome yoga practice is complemented by the incredibly peaceful and healing atmosphere of the island. People who appreciate breathtaking scenery and incredibly beautiful sunsets return again and again to this very special place. Accommodation is offered in a self-contained double bed studio-apartment, and double bed rooms with shared bathrooms.
Every bedroom has a stunning view of the Adriatic Mediterranean or else the well kept, lush surrounding gardens.
The vegetarian food will be nutritious as well as delicious, drawing inspiration from the Croatian coastal diet which is one of the healthiest and most delicious in the world.

Excursion and other activities

Exploring the local history

Apart from twice daily yoga classes, our trainees will get a chance to swim in the sparkling sea and study using one of the 3 terraces while taking in the sun. Some may try out snorkelling to meet the local sea life and we will every once in a while, at least one day a week, take an exhilarating hike on one of the many footpaths across the island, exploring local history or strolling to the little town nearby. We will in addition organise an excursion to the surrounding islands travelling by boat and passing through the dolphin habitat.
