The teachers! They have the biggest hearts and I was continuously so impressed with their knowledge and ability to make the learning process so fun and creative. I loved dancing and laughing with them and the other students. We all experienced this training in different ways but it was truly magical and held in Pranamar which was a tropical jungle location, making studying by the beach or by the pool much smoother than imagining I’d taken a course in the city.
My body was completely transformed in the space of 3 weeks, thanks to the discipline of daily routine and eating such nourishing meals. Show Less
I feel like I am able to hold space and have a new sense of confidence in front of others. The teachers have uncovered my voice and I’m no longer mouthing morning chants at my local studio, but embracing my singing voice!
Kadri has such a magnetic aura. A truly inspiring teacher, he was able to hold space for everyone and make us feel so safe and loved. He made me feel empowered and I’m thankful for the real life stories he shared with us all.
Nancy… a goddess yogini, a teacher who I aspire to be. Such a loving soul and a big heart, makes everyone feel special. I would look forward to her classes every morning because the sequencing would be different and felt challenging but I love getting a sweat on and strengthening my body during practice.
Laurie… The dancing queen! Such an infectious smile and always felt fully supported by her presence.

Aside from the breathtaking scenery and environment around us, the teachers' so openly sharing their knowledge, personal experiences, and vulnerabilities really made this a standout program and experience. They were incredibly impactful and inspiring. Their openness and availability for each and every student gave us all a sense of being heard, seen, and honored. The tone they set made this program into what it was.
I began really loving myself for maybe the first time ever in my life.
Yoga - Invigorating, methodical, detailed, well-paced, inspiring. We never had two yoga class that looked or felt even remotely the same. Best yoga classes I have ever taken.
Meditation - Calm, concise, consistent, enlightening, accessible. Best meditation practice I have been led through. Was so clear and made so accessible that allowed students to really understand the guided meditations and adopt them independently from a leader.
Oh one other thing, I liked how teachers cussed (ha!) and were so open with us about their process still being in development. Basically, what I'm getting at is that they acted in a REAL way with us, as equals, rather than using their knowledge of the yoga/meditation/spirituality/philosophy/etc as grounds to act above us or better than us. I can't stress enough how much this let us "in" as students in a way that empowered us to think of ourselves as teachers as well.
One. Hundred. Percent. Greater understanding (me) = full on love for myself. YOU GUYS GOT ME HERE! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Can never say it enough, but I am so eternally grateful. Thank you Luminous Heart Team and so much love!!!

I think I don't have a highlight. I honestly loved the whole emotional and physical roller coaster during the YTT. It felt like living in a magical space where I could simply just be myself. Okay probably the manifestation workshop was one of my highlights because it really helps me to be super clear about what I want, to be positive and to be more patient and I could not believe it but it absolutely works!!!
My first handstand thank you Kadri!!!! I try not to get super addicted to it but it is just so much fun and it really helps me to switch off my thoughts and to be present. I also feel that I am now more focused on what I want to do and not to do.
And of course I'm super happy that I improved my asanas and my pranayama techniques! Can't wait to start the 300hr YTT with you guys!
