This was so much more than just a 200 hour teacher training course. Antonina’s totally unique and engaging teaching style offers a thorough and complete view of all the aspects to becoming a teacher. She has an amazing way of connecting all the holistic sciences, the human anatomy, physiology and the philosophy of Yoga to real life and real people. And not to mention the cooking! Antonina is an amazing cook, she lovingly prepares balanced and beautiful meals and teaches you exactly how to cook, eat and live in a balanced, harmonised way. Not only have I come away with my teacher training certificate, I have come away with a life changing experience. ~ Georgie M., UK
This Teacher Training Program is a harmonious blend of two ancient mind-body sciences of health and harmony – Yoga and Ayurveda. During this course students become prepared to not only teach consciously and skillfully designed balanced general yoga classes but more importantly – to apply Yoga as health and wellness modality in one-on-one and speciality small group settings.
In this course, you will learn how to apply Yoga in an intelligent and tailored way selecting specific breathing practices, asanas, relaxation and visualization techniques to your clients based on their unique Ayurvedic Constitution (Dosha), physiology, state of health, lifestyle, physical condition, and their interests, goals, and needs.
This program is unique and different from other Yoga Teacher Courses. The teaching is based on Classical Hatha, Tantra, and Kriya Yoga, Ayurveda, Jin Shin Jyutsu Energy healing, and Hypnotherapy. Antonina believes in connecting all training material to real life situations making the science and art of Yoga alive, practical and applicable in your personal life and in your future yoga teaching work.
This 200 hour course is the foundation for the 300 hr (500 hours total) Advanced Yoga for Health and Ayurveda Teacher Training. It is also the beginning of your exploration of Yoga as a holistic modality.
In addition to learning a great amount of extremely useful and practical material, you are encouraged to use your newly acquired knowledge, intuition and creativity to chose the most appropriate tools within the system of Yoga for each person and situation.
There are no copious amounts of physical yoga postures in this course as it can easily get one out of balance. It is not a yoga “bootcamp” nor it is a large group “yoga sweatshop”.
There is just the right amount of posture practice, methodology, philosophy, anatomy and physiology learned through discussions, reading, testing, and application of material. Rest and enjoying yourself is a very important part of the course. There are no day offs. We work every day in a flowing, relaxed way in a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere of a small family that we create during the course. Learning happens all day long, even when we eat and chill out. We often take our meditation practice, discussions and yoga classes to the beautiful gardens or the beach.
Upon successful completion of the course, you receive your Yoga Teacher Certification recognised by Yoga Alliance.
The training is done in an intimate atmosphere of a small group in order to dedicate more time to each student and adapt it to the students’ goals, needs and abilities.
I had been wanting to take my 200hr Yoga Teacher training for a while and have walked away with more than what I could have asked for. Beyond the extensive and thorough knowledge you will attain from this course, Antonina has the skill of introducing such diverse, rich and complex concepts in a way that ignites an inherent interest and curiosity within you that you will carry with you thought your own practice. Could not be happier with my experience. Thank you once again! ~ Brenda Costa, New York
You will practice the actual teaching of yoga more than in any other training.
At the end of the course, each student will prepare and teach (usually in a group of 2 people) one intermediate and one beginner class.
Also, there is an additional 20 hours of teaching yoga practicum after you complete the in-person training. People love doing it! You get to immediately apply all the knowledge and techniques you acquire during the course and practice it on your family and friends. The number of people you chose to teach is up to you. When you are done, you email Antonina one simple document whe describing the classes you designed and gave to your clients plus your clients’ age, lifestyle, physical condition and feedback. You will receive feedback from Antonina on your taught classes. This way you stay supported in the beginning stages of your yoga teaching path.
I was unsure in the beginning. Spending my entire vacation and savings for this course. But now as it is over, I don’t regret doing this course even for a second. I would even pay more for it!
I am a university teacher myself and I had no idea that one could learn and retain this much incredibly useful information. It made me understand so much about my mind and body and human psyche in general. It simply changed my attitude to life. ~ Anna S., Switzerland

Never found as apt as today to apply this one to myself. Pure Mindfulness Gold. So simple but not so easy in real life. I’ve learned in my YTT from Antonina Ramsey about the consciousness of Appraisal, Reaction & Response to negativity, which is my biggest taking. Negativities are never nice but it’s only through challenges and bumps on the path that lead you to see that pretty yellow brick road. ~ Victoria Chan blog, UK

Yoga therapy is a relatively new method of healing born out of an ancient tradition.
Yoga has been around for over 1000 years. The idea of using yoga in a therapeutic context has been credited to Tirumalai Krishnamacharya who died in 1981 at the age of 100.
We can think of yoga therapy the same way we might think of other healing systems such as chinese medicine. We have a system that helps us identify various imbalances in a person and then we offer techniques to bring those aspects into balance. A Yoga Therapist uses various techniques to help a person find balance and heal such as movement (asana), breath work (pranayama), chanting, philosophy or point of view, and meditation to name a few.
We provide luxury style accommodation close to the beach, quality healthy vegetarian food and friendly small-group environment.

During this course, vegetarians truly enjoyed the food and those who who were not vegetarians before the course fell in love with vegetarian food. They had no idea vegetarian food could be so delicious and varied.
Our food consists of a variety of healthy dishes made from local and fresh vegetables, fruit, legumes, grains (organic as much as possible), whole bread, eggs, seeds and nuts, and some dairy products like fresh cheese and yogurt. We try to adjust our food for vegans and people with food allergies as much as we can.

Yoga is so many things but for me it’s an energy healing practice, a path to greater health and happiness, a (fun) therapy……..if you are thinking of training to teach yoga and want to focus on the healing aspects of the practice – I recommend InHarmony Yoga
~ Deborah S., UK/Spain (yoga teacher, healer, writer, 60 years of age)
My dear teacher Antonina is a very knowledgeable instructor and very warm, caring and
accepting person. Besides the hours of academy, she made sure we enjoyed the entire
experience. The small group made mostly of professionals interested in yoga for health
created a cohesive atmosphere and we felt like been part of a family. Its is 3 days after we
finished the course and there are a least 30 WhatsApp messages in our group every day.
Sticking to each other with such love and affection.
I had been practising yoga for more than 6 years and this intensive and invaluable course
help me to improve my pranayama, mantras and meditation and Ayurveda was the cherry
on the cake, helping me to discover why yoga is so important for health. Antonina’s passion
for yoga and personal stories helped me to understand much more than I could have hoped.
The location of the course was in El Presidente urbanisation in Estepona, surrounded by
luscious Mediterranean gardens, with fountains and swimming pools. I didn’t stay in the
main site but an apartment 5 minutes’ walk in the same site (my decision as I knew I could
be a bit loud during my sleep). Although it had some benefits this made communication a
bit more difficult as I missed some dinners and the bonding that occurred during evening
The food was vegetarian and well prepared, and the place was cleaned once a week besides
our daily rota to keep it tidy.
We had a couple of excursions and the last night we celebrated our achievement eating out
in a local restaurant. We also had the freedom to go out for meals whenever we wanted.
The course was all what I was looking for; thoughtful teacher, dedicated students, good
value and close to home. I couldn’t wish for more.
Antonina I am very grateful for your kindness and support during the training. I will never
forget my experience.
~ Isabel A., UK (Yoga teacher for Seniors, 60 years of age)
I love you so much! Thank you for teaching me everything I needed to help others in the way I so desired to, which has brought me confidence and allowed me to thrive and follow my dreams. Non of this in my life would have been possible without you, my dear mama bear an dbodhisattva. I am so eternally grateful for you and the teacher/mentor/friend you have become and am thinking of this today and wanted to tell you.All these people have come to the path of yoga and sleep better and feel better and all because you were brave and strong and created this training program! The ripple effect is huge and so cool and I feel lucky to be one small part of it!
~ Coreene Summers, Chicago, USA (Former Finance Consultant, yoga teacher 33 years of age)
I hope all has been well with you! I started teaching private yoga classes to a few people, and they love it so far. Just wanted to take the time to thank you for everything you taught me. The whole training was a very invaluable experience that I will carry with me for life. The training was definitely a personal transformation for me. I absolutely loved it, don’t ever stop teaching! I’m excited to see where my yoga teacher path takes me….Lots of love 🙂 Namaste,
~ Danielle A., USA (Marketing manager and yoga teacher, 37 years of age)
It has been so joyful and satisfying to teach yoga, and I’m looking forward to teach much much more in 2017. I am so incredible thankful, that I had the possibility and decided to do the teacher training at your lovely place and wonderful atmosphere in the spring this year. Much love to you Antonina!
~Rikke H., Holland (Yoga teacher, 40 years of age)
I hope every thing is going as you wish in your life. I just want you to know how much I’m gratefull, that you gave this Yoga training to me. You were a very inspiring guide to me. I’m remembering when I was planning this trip one year ago, with the wish to bring Yoga to my home and my family.And now I have recieved a true present: We all have introduced Yoga in our everyday life.Peace and compassion rises. That makes me reallly happy
Lots of Love
~ Estelle S., France (Yoga teacher, 40 years of age)

~ Lisa D., Germany (Medical School graduate, 27 years of age)
I definitely think you changed my life. I was stuck in such of rut, of whenever I failed, linking it back to why my relationship failed. Those few weeks at your yoga teacher training, really knocked my out of what was a year of pure torture. So I’m really grateful for that. I also love doing yoga and I am having a good time doing those 20 hours.
~ Azra C., Canada (Pharmaceutics student, 21 years of age)I had a wonderful time on the course and made some amazing new friends. The course attracted exactly the kind of people I wanted to learn with: an interesting, diverse and mature group. Antonina changed my yoga for the better and prepared me to be the kind of teacher I want to be and enabled me to start teaching with confidence.~Vanessa Rainbow, France/UK (Naturopath, 47 yrs of age)
Antonina,How are you? Been meaning to get back in touch for quite a while now, not only to thank you once again for everything – your time, your dedication, your knowledge, your patience, your hospitality, your all – but have been waiting until I was back in Andalusia to catch up in person!Whilst carrying on my individual one-on-one’s I’ve come to realize i’m enjoying them so so so much, it made me think it may be worthwhile to keep my focus on smaller, more intimate groups .. all in all, its being an amazing trip and I’m looking forward to see how it all develops! Let alone my own practice, that’s a entire story of its own! Just reviewing my notes from the training and realizing all that resonates from your teaching, I just wanted you to know how much the course is positively influencing my development – I have NO IDEA where I’m heading, but so far, it is being a trip, and I thank you!:) Huge huge hugs, trust all is well and talk soon!
~ Brenda C., New York (Marketing Project Manage, 37 years of age)
inHarmony Yoga for Health provides a great YTT. The program educates you on all the poses along with the physical, mental, and emotional benefits they provide. You will leave the training knowing how to teach a full class as well as one on one. The curriculum is well thought out and is taught in a non-judgmental way allowing students to truly be present and absorb all material. I learned so much each day and truly appreciated the topics we spoke about because of how important they are. I believe I was meant to be at this specific training, I walked away with friends, felt enlightened and at peace. Thank you Antonina for a life changing experience.~ Daniele A., New York
Very interesting approach that, in my opinion, is different from others and make it unique.~ Justine D., France (Project manager, yoga teacher, 33 years of age)
The inHarmony yoga teacher training has my very highest recommendations! Not only is the setting perfect, close to a beautiful beach to walk on and set in a very green, lush luxury urbanisation in beautiful Andalucia, the knowledge and awareness of Antonina Ramsey is so vast, so broad and all aiming for health in a clear and no nonsense attitude. Ahhhh, so refreshing and time saving. In our small and very intimate group of 8 students we all became tutors to ourselves and it was possible by Antonina that set the scene! It takes a lot of courage to feel so safe to be able to share and grow. I am more than grateful for having this opportunity and hope that as many as possible find this gem of knowledge and awareness. Namaste!Maria R., Switzerland (Hospitality industry consultant, yoga teacher, 47 yrs of age)
I enjoyed the program! It motivated me to continue my yoga journey and once again demonstrated the diverse facets of yoga. I learned a lot about the theory of yoga and could improve my practice. The program is intense but it is definitely worth the effort. Due to her rich experience, Antonina offers valuable insights into the organisation/structure/development of your own class. She provided many nice adjustments / flow sequences which i haven’t seen before (even though i have been doing yoga for a long time). What is more important i could understand the logic and purpose of these adjustments, i.e. there was a nice link between the theory and practice. The program took place in a beautiful Estepona (Spain). While learning takes a lot of time, one can still find the time to enjoy the sunny weather of Andalusia. Last but not least i am very thankful for the people i met during this program, the experiences that they shared and the time we spent together.~ Anna S., Russia/Switzerland ( College professor, yoga teacher, 35 years of age)
