Avani and the incredible team at OM at Cashew Hill create an unforgettable journey of self discovery and empowerment, that happens to also prepare you to be a kick ass 200 RYT. I had no idea how much growth and self discovery I would experience on this training, and the family I would gain. It is so much more than an education in becoming a teacher, the OM team instills the values of being compassionate, aware, and present as a teacher and human being, and I am honored to say I received my training in such a grounded, special place. I would recommend it 10X over to anyone looking to do their training here.
This training was been above and beyond what I would have ever imagined. There’s so much love in Cashew Hill. There are wonderful angels protecting this place. [Avani] embodies the definition of a mother helping others connect to their higher self and unveil layers of conditioning to re-connect and rise together!
This YTT somehow transformed me. During the YTT, I have experienced and received so much love from everyone around the world... I felt genuine kindness and positivity from everyone everywhere. In addition, I had chances to release. I've never felt stronger emotionally. I was not really a spiritual person but this YTT has opened my views to things I was constantly in denial of. I am glad I participated. It has offered me more than what I came for and a chance to see my life differently.
There is no place like this. I went to do my yoga teacher training But Avani and the crew gave so so so much more than just a yoga training. You will have to come and experience it by yourself! The daily meals speaks for itself. Im def coming back to do further studies for my 300hr. There is no place i’d rather be.
I just finished my YTT and can’t stop thinking about all the beautiful experiences I had thanks to Avani and all the OM team for being so special to us. I will do all my studies in Caribbean Yoga Academy! I don’t know what I miss the most if it's you guys, the beautiful place or the food.
I am really grateful for what you helped bring out in me. Please continue facilitating the beautiful process of bring people’s best selves out!

I can't imagine having done my 200 YTT with anyone else...my intuition told me to come here! This is a top notch program...I am proud to be a Caribe Yoga Academy alum!

"Caribe Yoga Academy sets the standard for what a yoga teacher training should be. The information is varied and deep. The instructors are passionate and truly invested in transferring that to their students. The setting is second to none. I cannot imagine taking my YTT anywhere else. I feel I have received enough knowledge, practice and empowerment to take my yoga out into the world with confidence."
