What previous YTT participants have said about the 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training at the Brussels Yoga Loft:


Veronika (2017)
What I enjoyed most is the practical approach of the training being able to see the courses “live”. I also very much love Marc’s teaching approach in the classes, instructions, going through asanas together and understanding them in detail.

It is a great training in English available in Brussels. You can also start teaching yoga directly after the training and it gives you invaluable life experience how to step out of your comfort zone and learn about yourself, your body as well as – and most importantly – your mind.

Fanny (2017)
This training gave me the thirst to keep learning more about yoga. I’ve grown in so many different areas. I feel more mindful in my daily life, more balanced. I’m very proud to be a yoga ambassador and also super proud to have the privilege to help new people discover yoga.


Delphine (2016)
My overwhelming feeling after the training is gratitude. I am so thankful for the space of acceptance that allowed me (us) to grow and transform. I would encourage anyone interested in discovering themselves and discovering yoga to do this training. It is a short and intense period of learning and growing. Really worth the time and financial investment.

Alex (2016)
I would never have thought that a 6 – 7 week training could open my perception towards so many different fields and change my attitude and approach so much.


Ronak (2014)
What a journey, what an eye opener. This training opened the door to a whole new way of living for me, a way I have been looking for without knowing what it was. Now I found it, and I can’t wait to explore more. It shed a new colour over everything, including myself. Waow.

I want more! More yoga, more friendship, more of this new way of life I have discovered and the philosophical doors that the training opened.

Tanya (2014)
The fact that we were a group of 15 motivated yogis was one of the best things about the training. Also learning from each other, supporting each other and become close friends in a short period of time are things I will treasure forever.

The second best aspect of the training was the fact that we were able to experience a functioning studio. We could observe, adjust and eventually teach at a place where this happens already every day!
