My journey on the 200hr teacher training held by golden flow yoga was truly transformational.
Aeven along with the other teachers on the course gave fantastic instruction and held space with ease.
I loved the woman I met on the course and felt like I not only got to explore and learn to be a yoga teacher but also got to grow as a person and find myself after years of searching. This course has given me the grounding to become a successful yoga teacher and I am already out teaching 3 classes per week, 2 weeks out from finishing the course. Life changing experience thank you so much Aeven and Golden Flow yoga!

We are so lucky to be here. A 13-day immersion, while intense, is far easier to fit around work and family commitments than other teacher training options in NZ and abroad. This Golden Bay course was also a cheaper, simpler option than other studios in Wellington who require their students to go to Bali for three weeks or Australia for a month. Every day here I’m reminded I made the right choice for me. And it feels good.

I thoroughly recommend Golden Flow Yoga Teacher training. I chose this training because I have a young children and can’t stay away from home for long, so an intensive training was really the only viable option for me at this stage in my life. And I am so glad I made this choice. Not only was it viable time wise but also financially and practically, not having to organise accommodation and having one nutritious meal provided every day. It was so great to be able to live on the grounds where we also where taught. Golden Bay is such a beautiful, perfect spot for a yoga teacher training – it literally can’t get much better than this – only a 5 minute walk to the beach with a sauna and the best, most nutritious, delicious caterer around for dinners. The dinners were a highlight every day – probably every mother who has to cook every day at home would appreciate them as much as I did. The schedule and the lessons were fantastic. The teacher training was well rounded and got way deeper than I thought. The journey was well guided by Aeven and the other teachers and I really appreciated the beautiful community of other students from all over the world. It was lovely to make new bonds, share our ideas, get advice, start teaching, establishing a regular practice, be inspired every day. On my last day at the airport I can literally say that my cup felt full for the first time in 10 years (mothering is busy....) I felt relaxed, energised and just REALLY good and my body and soul felt nourished, despite a 6.30am-9pm schedule every day. I miss the daily gatherings and togetherness of other likeminded souls. And although I was nervous getting out in the real world and starting to teach I felt like I had enough knowledge on board to make a start on my journey as a yoga teacher. I will always hold this teacher training in a special place in my heart, the bond with the other students, the insights gained, the layers shed, the old stuff left behind, the new inspirations in my pocket... A huge thank you to my teachers and fellow students. I feel so blessed and grateful to have been able to experience this.

Aeven your teachings are clear and concise with humour which is important to me. I loved your neutral way of being with us and I appreciate that you are honest and say it like it is. I have learnt alot and I am really grateful for this experience and opportunity. I feel prepared to teach out in the community because of this course, thanks again!
