I did my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Julia and it was simply amazing. Everyone working at Palm Trees is so lovely. The food is delicious and the resort is so beautiful with all the palm trees, plants and sculptures. The Yoga Shala is also equipped with a lovely view of the surrounding palm trees. The yoga teachers do an amazing job. I have learned so much here!
The whole stay felt homely thanks to the very welcoming, a Palm Trees Family.

I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Goa with Julia and Sam at Palm Trees Yoga Resort. It was definitely a great decision to join them. The yoga resort was magical. The food was delicious. The staff really made us feel at home.
