PRAISE

Attending the High Vibe Yoga Teacher Training felt like spending a month at “life school” … in the best way possible. Emily lives her Yoga – her offering is rigorous and of the highest quality, but also playful and refreshingly authentic. In other words, it’s a lot of fun! I learned so much about all aspects of Yoga and, in the process, about myself. I now feel empowered and excited to apply what I have learned to my daily life, and share it with the world! ~ Jane, New Zealand

This is a magnificent, challenging and inspiring experience – I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend the High Vibe YTT and to take the vibrancy and learning with me into my goals for the future. Thank you Emily and all! ~Chloe, Australia

The first day I learned how to stand properly on my feet in Tadasana. Nothing really mind blowing. Looking back, I could not have imagined where this simple instruction would lead me to. This YTT keeps its promise. It will take you directly to the place where true learning happens, that lies beyond your comfort zone. To me the most authentic teachings come from the heart. So if you want to learn how to teach from your heart you first need to dive into your own experiences and challenges. If that is what you are looking for, then I highly suggest this YTT. ~Dalia, Switzerland

I always considered myself an open, yet slightly skeptical human being. So naturally when I read on the High Vibe Yoga website that the course would challenge insecurities, inspire incredible self-esteem and transform my ability to feel connected to yourself and to others, I was intrigued and incredulous at the same time. I think I did not really believe all this was possible in a month’s time. But I was willing to give it a try. And I am so grateful I did. I felt how my heart opened up more and more each day. How I could let a new found sense of authenticity in and shed off a lot of the feelings about not being good enough – for being a yoga teacher first and foremost. It all happened in a wonderful environment, supported by great teachers. I can wholeheartedly recommend this training to anyone who’s willing to dig a little bit deeper and to be gently pushed out of their comfort zones. ~Julia, Germany

As soon as I saw Emily’s course I knew right away this is the only course I needed to do right now in my life. I didn’t even look elsewhere because the energy I got from it was so strong. A part of me knew this would be a life changing experience and I was absolutely right! We had the most amazing teachers and we were well taken care of. The modules were diverse and incredibly interesting. It sparked so much inspiration within me! I came to this course wanting to transform my fear of speaking in front of a group of people and I sure did. I also wanted to heal my disconnection with others, and feel like I belonged here on this Earth. Here at High Vibe, I was able to meet my kula, the most amazing group of people you’d ever meet. I have yearned for a community all my life and I found them here. When you come on to this course together, you form an unspoken bond and connection to everyone. It was absolutely amazing to witness the transformation we all went through in our own ways. This is not just a yoga course, this is a life course. Be prepared for transformation and change, and know that there will be ups and downs. If you’re open to it, you will have the most amazing journey of your life. ~Vanessa, UK

Emily’s High Vibe yoga teacher training was incredible. It was organized yet intuitive. It was educational yet spiritual. I learned more than I could have imagined on many levels – mind, body and spirit. Emily’s assistant instructors and visiting lecturers were outstanding – all highly educated and with a wealth of useful information to lovingly share. I tapped into my intuitive side. I unveiled blockages I was unaware of. I learned about asana technique, meditation, voice/mantra, breath, trauma healing, Yoga Nidra, philosophy, history, anatomy, psychology – all in very engaging ways. I was inspired in so many ways by Emily and her beliefs and am grateful to have been able to dedicate this month to my evolution. Robyn, USA

High Vibe is the best thing I have ever done and experienced. it is my greatest and most proudest achievement. High vibe teacher training has enabled me to grow at an amazing speed, to heal pain and be able to dream again. I feel so empowered by this course and it is the best experience I have ever had to date. ~Carla, Ireland

Yoga is so much more than asanas – and this training offers an opportunity for exploring various aspects of yoga in a very supportive environment with inspiring, loving and wise teachers. Not only has it taken my practice to a new level, it has also allowed me to reconnect with a part of myself that I have neglected for years. It has been an amazing roller coaster ride and I would do it all over again <3  ~Louisa, Denmark

I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve danced and sang like I never thought I would and never felt more live. I didn’t think I needed this training as much as I did – and I knew somewhat I was letting myself in for having met Emily before. This training will teach you how to truly care for yourself, teach you how to love yourself. How to be you. We all think we know what we want, we have goals, we go out there in the western world and try so hard to get them. Until this training I never thought that there was such a thing as “trying to hard”. We’re so busy in this crazy western world that we don’t even lift our head up for a second. We don’t breath. We don’t know our bodies and we don’t appreciate the power of a community. Conditioned to look after only those closest to us. You’ll feel the power of community and be opened up to the diversity that is life. If one things for sure, your life will never be the same again. Emily is one of the most wonderful women I have ever met. I took one of her classes whilst traveling in Ubud two years ago and came out of the class in tears. I’d never felt this much companion, love and care from an absolute stranger. After that I vowed I’d be back to train with her and thats exactly what I did.
Thank you Emily & co & the Kula. I’m so happy to have shared this experience with such incredible individuals. You’ve all been my teachers in some way shape or form. You’ve opened up and showed me doors that I didn’t even know existed.
I’ll forever be grateful.  Sophie, UK

It’s hard find the words to express what an amazing experience High Vibe was…Emily created a truly loving , challenging but safe space to explore our bodies, hearts, minds and spirits…the daily rituals of asana, pranayama, philosophy & yogic discussions will stay with me forever. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity and to share it with a group of soul sisters from diverse cultures and languages from around the world and a group of gifted teachers. I had so many new experiences but the most profound was the very strong feeling of connectedness, inner peace and bliss developed over the month. I loved how we explored energy and diverse easy, practical ways to meditate. My confidence and understanding of yoga has grown and Emily’s asana teaching was refreshing and inspiring, with great attention to sequencing, how to themes classes, the language of yoga and approaches to adjustments. We laughed, cried, danced, explored, shared, hugged and were there for each other on this amazing journey. Spending a month in beautiful Ubud, eating some of the best vegan food in the world made the experience even more profound. I turn 65 next month and there were times on the course when I felt 18 again….what a gift. This was my first month long retreat and I was apprehensive about doing the course given my age, not sure how it happened but I had so much energy and vitality, some magic happened and I now feel truly incredible in my body, mind, heart and spirit. I would recommend the course to anyone..what a gift it is.
Thankyou Emily for crafting the course and for your compassion, leadership, wisdom, love and humour… ~Maria, AU

It is a game changer! Prepare to take down patterns you have had and rebuild more sustainable ones. I feel like my spiritual journey has just begun! Rachel, AU

Be ready for some big changes inside yourself, changes for the better. Emily always said “Yoga will ruin your life as you know it.” It definitely ruined my inner life. My inner life of thinking that I am not good enough, that my voice is not worth being heard, that I need to change my body and be something different from what I am already, that I am alone with my thoughts and issues, that I am NOT ENOUGH! The tools and practices she and all the other awesome teachers share are infinitely valuable. They are so down to earth, applicable and validated by their personal experiences and experiments. The teachers don’t dictate knowledge on you but rather let you FEEL EVERYTHING. They are an embodiment of wisdom and share all of it with you through practical exercises and I didn’t realize how MUCH I have learned until I taught at the end and it was fun and I enjoyed it and I felt so free to share my voice, my thoughts and ideas. It is an amazing feeling! I feel so much more like myself now and I have learned so many tools that I can´t wait to share with the world! Kim, Germany

There are so many reasons that I would recommend this course that I don’t know where to begin. I’ve put off writing a review for a week because I didn’t know where to start and how to answer this concisely when I have a High Vibe hurricane still roaring in my head! Early on in the course, Emily laughingly said “yoga will ruin your life as you know it” and I felt so uneasy with this because I already knew how powerful the teacher training process would be before I even knew what it involved, and that was being confirmed! I also knew from the experience of educating myself that once you learn something big you can’t unlearn it! The most powerful thing I cultivated was a deep, loving, connection with myself. Who my authentic self is when you peel away the layers and influences of upbringing, education, cultural conditioning, religion etc. I have a stronger sense of self and I know how to keep it blooming now that I’ve integrated back into my life; through meditation, asana, pranayama and mantra. I have so many tools up my sleeve for living life because I took a month to go on the crazy journey of self care that is yoga. I met beautiful, diverse people from all over the world and learnt the depths that connection can be. It turns out how long you know someone means nothing compared to how deeply you connect. I know I’ve made some lifelong friends. Ubud, The Yoga Barn and Balinese people, my goodness the best combination of surrounds you could hope for on this journey. The teachers are all amazing rebels! Emily was incredibly generous to have such a diverse faculty of teachers that shared a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. My horizons have been so broadened, and to top it off I became a yoga teacher! Jamie, AU

High Vibe is a great 200 hr training which exceeded my expectations in many ways. The community that Emily creates and the people she brings together are one-of-a-kind and made my experience better than I could ever imagine. Emily is an excellent teacher and yogini. Her views on yoga, self-care and women really resonated with me because she keeps it so real and pure. I would highly recommend this training to ANYONE looking at becoming a teacher or just deepening their practice. Betsy, AU

Whoa. So, that was a mindblowing experience! I thought I was just coming to learn a bunch of yoga poses! Instead, it has been a joyous, painful, and awakening journey inwards. Yes, I learned a lot about asana as well, and feel prepared to teach a yoga class (or meditation or mantra for that matter), but this time was far more than I ever expected. Emily’s positive energy is contagious, and her authenticity invites people to grow in ways they didn’t expect. The teachers she brings in for the other modules are spectacular – I overlooked them when singing up, but they make each part of the training come alive. Thank you, Emily, for this awesome experience. Shelby, US

People hope their YTT will be life changing. They often don’t know how, or why, but it seems to be the common desired outcome. This training will crack you open in the most gentle way, and then tenderly and carefully and with such love, piece you back together. You’ll leave as a stronger, more resilient, more beautiful version of yourself. ~ Kirsty, Canada

Why High Vibe Yoga? I simply can’t describe it in one review. Certainly, it transforms your life, but I’m still not sure how. You just not the same as you used to be. Maybe it cultivates self-love and acceptance? Or maybe for the month I have been in Shala I have learned compassion all teachers have shared with us? I’m still processing my experience… The biggest things I will be carrying out from the training is the realization that all the answers are within me and second, I want to be “turned on” by every minute of my life. Thank you Emily and all the Teachers for making a difference! 🙂 ~Maria, US

 


The High Vibe retreat was life changing. I went to Bali hoping to relax, de-stress and do some yoga. While that was achieved, the retreat offered soooo much more. I have a truckload of
gratitude to Megan and Emily for all that I have learned through
the amazing work that they do.I came into the retreat really closed off to the world. I had so many walls built to keep people away, thinking I was strong because no one could hurt me. In the retreat, I learnt that real strength is about having the courage to let people in. It was amazing connecting with everyone on the retreat and I feel really lucky to have been a part of a group where everyone was open and honest. It was a magical experience, and I feel that I am truly living better as a result. ~Evonne, Australia


Wow! What an amazing experience! A week away in Bali with high vibe yoga classes & food,wonderful teachers and an opportunity to make wonderful friendships. If you have been feeling tired, lacking in energy, need a week away to lift your spirits then get your butt to Bali and join Emily & Bex to feel renewed, energized and catch some seriously high vibes. I so needed this week away and am so grateful for the manifestation of this wonderful retreat. I will be back!!!   ~Sharon – Gold Coast, Australia


I have just come back from an amazing, inspirational time with a bunch of fantastic women from all over the world. Emily and Bex are tireless in their care and effort to ensure not just the yoga is amazing, but the food, location and entire “yogic” experience. I will be coming back next year!Thanks for giving me the “me time” I so desperately needed with alot of brilliant, strengthening yoga, in a fab piece of paradise. ~ Emma – Sydney, Australia


“High Vibe was fantastic. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a different kind of holiday with a love of all things yoga. Emily and Megan are both excellent and experienced teachers and they did a wonderful job of bringing the group together and connecting with everybody on a personal level. The yoga practices were challenging and varied allowing everyone to explore their strengths and weaknesses and push beyond their edge, all while having loads of fun and lots of laughs! The food and the accommodation were all amazing as well. Made some really wonderful friends and I think we all inspired each other in our own way during our week together and will definitely keep in touch. An unforgettable experience.” Olly, Australia


The High Vibe Yoga Retreat was an amazing experience from start to finish. The location, teachers, supporting community guests, schedule of events and yoga were the highest quality that anyone could ask for. Emily and her community truly embody the spirit of yoga. They meet each individual exactly where they are at on all levels and gently encourage them to explore possibilities for growth. I highly recommend this retreat if you want your heart to expand and to leave with a smile on your face and spring in your step. Thank you to everyone who made this experience possible! ~Sarah – Calgary, Canada


It was a inspirational week in Ubud with Emily, Bex, Ashley, Cathy, Philip and others.  A competent, loving and creative group of friends who came together with the purpose of creating an experience of diverse yoga styles meditations and more.. Emily and Bex are excellent teachers and helped us to get into the various positions (asanas) and offered us advice for our personal aches and pains. The location of Ubud, the full moon, the energy, the enjoyment of meeting new people, the philosophy talks and the dance session with Cathy and last but not least the outstanding cuisine and workshops of Ashley and her helper Putu are unforgettable.  The acro yoga was indeed exciting! I felt safe and cared for in a lovely and comfortable setting. This high vibe yoga retreat has a special charm. The knowledge and loving kindness of Emily, Bex and Ashley were beyond expectation. An experience which I will be likely to repeat and highly recommend to others. To conclude I would say: High Vibe Yoga is really a Labour of Love! ~Sandra – Amsterdam/Bali


This week was truly inspiring to me – I have never met so many fantastic people with so much love to share. I am so grateful that you 3 girls, Emily, Bex and Ashley opened up so much to us. That was not required of you but it made me able to open up as well. This retreat has helped me find my self again (even though I still have a long journey ahead of me) and it has set my priorities straight. I know it will be a challenge to retain and nurture this feeling now when I am back home, but you have given me so many tools to work with and so much inspiration, that I am now sure it is doable =) I will strive to retain yoga practice as part of my everyday life. Many hugs to all of you, and a great thank you for making this week so special, I hope one day our roads will cross again. ~ Sophia, Denmark


This was a beautiful week of great food, people, and yoga in an amazing paradise like setting. The yoga classes were diverse and run by great knowledgeable and passionate teachers. My love and knowledge of yoga has deepened and I feel very happy and relaxed after such a fun, relaxing and strengthening week.  ~Pam – London, UK


It has been good to come back to Bali and I feel more at peace with myself for having done so. I wonder why I waited so long and let it become a problem. I made a promise to myself to always face the things I fear the most, as soon a possible.

Thank you all of you for making the week we spent together such a precious and revealing experience.
~Barbara – Kenya, Africa

Caged primal energy released,
Freed!
My sisters, thank you,
For coming together in celebration, dedication, meditation,
High Vibrations! ~Rebecca, USA/Indonesia


I arrived a middle-aged, fairly inflexible guy, dragging my hidden wagon of baggage behind me. I had full intentions of orbiting the experience like an ethnographer with a notebook, gathering ideas, analyzing and returning to report. What I didn’t expect was deep personal transformation, feeling loved, and a notebook full of personal resolutions that will change my life and the lives of my students forever. Emily and Bex, you made a dent in my universe and for that I will forever be grateful. Words are not adequate— please imagine me looking deep into your eyes and sending you pure love vibes. ~Bob, US

I just quit my job right before this retreat. I needed something to clean my head and to clear my vision. I had so many anxieties in my mind about future, relationship and being a mother and it really bothered me. After the retreat I found out that it’s really hard to be a different person. I ‘m still me. I still have many anxieties and still have difficulties with relationships but the difference is that I know myself better now. I become to know something about myself I didn’t even expect from me. I was still struggling with my past that I thought that I had overcome. Big advance for me. Thank you so much. Emily, Bex, Ashely and all the retreat buddies.  ~ Yun, Korea


I enjoyed every minute of this amazing retreat, I felt at home from the first day, I made amazing connections with every people of the retreat including the inspiring teachers. I learned a lot about my own self. I would recommend to all level of experience as a relieving and full of love experience! ~ Sebastien, Montreal, CA
