A slice of heaven in paradise
Tatjana Lukic, New Zealand, YTT Nov 2018

Steve provides a safe space where he allows you to grow at your own pace. It was the most amazing experience I could have dreamed of. Walking away from the training made me a little sad because I didn’t want it to end. Steve is a truly awesome human, he introduced us to some amazing teachers on the training who shared with us their styles and forms of teaching, I walk away with a cup overflowing yet I know this is just the beginning. Thank you to everyone who attended, teaches and students, I am forever grateful and looking forward to bumping into some of you in the future. I would highly recommend this program to everyone. With abundance of love and light Namaste ?

Transformational YTT in quiet, gorgeous Piha
Emma Jacobs, Australia, YTT Oct 2018

In short, I had a wonderful training experience filled with learning and laughter. Steve is a fantastic, hilarious, insanely knowledgeable teacher, who is full of surprises and support. He is committed to helping his trainees flourish and to bring our their individual abilities, with warmth and professionalism.

Piha is a gorgeous pocket of natural beauty, and a luxury was being able to take a quiet stroll to the beach which was only 5 minutes walk from the house. The accommodation was more than comfortable, and we enjoyed the flexibility of cooking for ourselves - having fun with creating healthy wholesome food. I found the dynamic and energy of the whole experience incredibly nourishing. We were taught what we needed to know, and to teach safely - no more and no less - which is the best that you can expect from a 200 hour training.

A transformative experience
Saree Sasson, Canada, YTT Oct 2018

The three week intensive Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Piha NZ was more than any experienced I could have asked for. The location, course, content and teachers were all absolutely phenomenal. Steve is a generous soul who was so welcoming and warming within the training. He offered a very inclusive and calm learning environment where every student can feel as though they can achieve.

The one thing that really stood out on this training was how Steve had such a natural and effective way of teaching and giving information. Along with being very knowledgeable, he took the time to ensure all students understood and would work to any extent to make sure that if students were confused at all he found a way to help them learn a concept. Along with Steve, the other trainers that were on the trip were highly knowledgeable and I could tell that Steve took pride in choosing his fellow trainers. Steve created such an open and safe learning environment and I would definitely choose to take another course from him in a heartbeat.

Here is a video of Saree getting creative with her yoga flow with incredible music.

Challenging but Inspiring
Cassandra, Canberra, Australia, YTT April 2018

Last week I concluded three challenging, inspiring weeks in Ahipara New Zealand where I became officially certified as a yoga teacher. A linguistics degree and life of writing seem still somehow insufficient tools to access the vocabulary of gratitude I’m after. To the friends and teachers who have shared their passion for the practice with me – thank you. 

The resilience I found through regular classes saw me develop a love too strong not to share. I am so grateful to have gone on this adventure with my dear friend Cassidy, and the absolutely incredible humans I met on the training. Excited to get teaching and pass on what has been passed on to me, and incredibly eager to keep learning and share as I grow. I’ll be offering regular private and community classes back in Canberra so watch this space!

A school with heart
Sheryl Marlin, Texas USA, YTT Nov 2018

As a seasoned professional and educator I 100% recommend Asia Pacific Yoga teacher training for anyone who is serious about getting a distinctive mind, body, and soul educational training. Here’s why: Steve Hall, owner and operator of Asia Pacific Yoga, is a genuine person and a dedicated, outstanding educator. Steve’s extensive knowledge and experience is the foundation of the solid program that he offers. His approach to teaching is compassionate, perceptive, and creative resulting in a non-rigid practicum that easy to digest and fun to learn.

Asia Pacific Yoga offers holistic training at its core. The program focuses on safety and the individual needs of each student. The students in our class represented a diverse range of backgrounds, yoga experience, geographic regions and age. In the end, Steve’s innovative approach to teaching assured that each student’s needs were met to insure that their comprehension, skills, and confidence were sound.

Steve’s excellent teaching staff provides the variety of instruction methods, styles, experience, communication skills, and knowledge that is essential to a well-rounded learning experience. Our curriculum included music, chanting, videos, documentaries, surprise outings, and, oh yes…nettie pots to start the day with a clear head and a unique bonding encounter! Steve always went out of his way to guarantee that all of our lodging needs were met as well. Peace of mind is important. Steve was always just a text away and reliably quick and efficient to respond to requests. Asia Pacific Yoga is not a “one size fits all” school. It is a school with a heart and a fitting journey that is well worth traveling.
