"I recently completed Sin City's immersive yoga teacher training 200 hour course (Jan-Feb 2015) which was held in Costa Rica and it was incredible!
I found the course well structured, varied and the materials provided were very useful and aided our learning. We got to cover a range of areas and I now feel prepared and confident in my ability to teach yoga to others. I learned a lot about yoga, myself and met some amazing human beings on this part of my journey. The location added to the experience too, Angelica's chosen a really beautiful part of the world to host this course, with stunning accommodation, delicious food, excursions and more. For anyone who's in 2 minds about whether to sign up for this course - just do it! You'll be so happy you did!
The course leader, Angelica, is a very experienced yogi with an extensive training background. Angelica was very professional, friendly and made the course really fun! She gave illustrative and physical examples to help us learn and relate to the various areas of study and we covered a range of topics. I found Angelica very inspirational, motivational and she has restored the faith I had lost in myself - thank you Angelica!"

"Angelica is an amazing teacher. It is obvious that she loves what she does and has a wealth of knowledge to share with her students. She and [the assistant] brought a lot of personality and fun to the class and after graduating, I feel like I could lead a yoga class with confidence."
