Vicky hails from Belgium, and her transformative journey with Yoga began during one of her voyages in Costa Rica. This experience, in particular, marked a turning point in her life.
Her journey with Yoga took off as she delved into the practice and pursued her first 200-hour TTC in Hatha Yoga in Thailand during December 2014. As her affinity for Yoga deepened, she explored the realms of Ashtanga Yoga, leading her to Mysore, India, for her second 200-hour TTC in March 2017.
Returning to Europe, an unexpected opportunity emerged in Tuscany, where Vicky began her teaching journey, sharing the wisdom of Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga alongside her regular occupation. Over two enriching years, she discovered the profound exchange between teacher and student, realizing the natural impact she had on people's well-being.
This innate ability to uplift and inspire naturally steered her dedication towards Yoga – not merely the physical postures, but the holistic essence it embodies. Collaborating with Yogi Madhav, she contributed to various 200-hour TTC programs in Cambodia, diving into restorative Yoga and generously sharing her insights with a diverse global community of students.
Vicky extended her skill set by embracing a 50-hour certification in Pregnancy Yoga and mastering the art of Thai Yoga massage and Deep Tissue massage. Her curiosity then expanded to encompass Reiki, meditation, and mindfulness, recognizing the interconnection of these practices.
Her conviction now rests in the fusion of Yoga and holistic therapies with Western medicine. This integration, she believes, paves the way for a broader spectrum of healing, restoration, and self-discovery. It is a path she follows with utmost sincerity, instilling hope and rekindling faith in those who have lost it.
In 2021 and 2023, Vicky pursued further mastery, completing two 300-hour TTC programs in Yoga Therapy, Integrative Medicine, and Ashtanga & Yin Yoga. Her passion for learning is perpetual, and she channels her evolving wisdom to meet the unique needs of her students.
Vicky, alongside Andrea, eagerly anticipates sharing their wealth of knowledge throughout the year. Their commitment to imparting wisdom is deeply rooted in gratitude for the students who continue to inspire their journey.
Andrea Santos Richardson
Andrea's lifelong fascination with natural healing, meditation, and the wonders of the natural world has been a guiding force in her journey.
In 2006, during her maiden voyage to Thailand, she had her first encounter with the transformative benefits of Thai Massage. This experience left an indelible mark, prompting her to remain in the country and immerse herself in becoming a Thai Massage instructor. It was during this time that the interconnection between Thai Massage and yoga unveiled itself, leading Andrea to embrace the world of Yoga, primarily focusing on Hatha Yoga and Thai Yoga.
Through the practice of Thai Massage and Yoga, Andrea unearthed a vast realm of potential for physical healing and inner equilibrium. Eager to delve deeper and refine her skills, she embarked on journeys to India and various countries. These expeditions unveiled an array of treatments and yoga styles including Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Pre-Postnatal, and Yin Yoga.
Today, Andrea holds the titles of E-RYT200 and E-RYT500 certified yoga teacher, an Ayurvedic therapist, sound healer, Reiki practitioner, and a Thai Massage teacher. Her professional journey over the last 13 years has been a diverse tapestry, encompassing roles as a massage therapist, massage & yoga instructor, organizer of yoga retreats, and spa manager across England, Spain, and Switzerland.
Hailing originally from Tenerife, Andrea is deeply connected to her home island and is overjoyed at the prospect of welcoming you there. She invites you to walk this transformative path with her, embracing the healing energies of Tenerife and sharing in the profound journey of wellness and self-discovery.
What makes this training special?
Our course is designed to prepare you to teach Yoga right away
We firmly believe that as smaller the group is, the more personalized the training is and the more individual support you get from our teachers. That's why we will never accept more than 8 students per TTC.
Lots of practice for you!
There is no best way to become a good and confident Yoga teacher than to give plenty of classes as a lead teacher. From week one you will start sequencing, cueing and giving classes to your colleagues, always with the support of our lead teacher.
Sequencing & cueing techniques
We will spend all the needed hours giving you all the knowledge, examples and explanation of how to perfectly guide your students in Vinyasa yoga classes using your voice, your body and a clear language.
During our Yoga Teacher Training Courses we will also offer you various workshops to deepen your knowledge as a Yoga teacher as for example Thai Massage, Sound Healing, SUP Yoga, Yoga Nidra, etc...
Coming to do a TTC, you will be getting to know like-minded people. The time and experiences you will have with them will create a friendship that will last all your life :)
Support before and after the course
Finishing a TTC with us means that you, together with lots of other students, will be part of Shambhala Family and we will give you the opportunity to stay or come back as a Karma Yoga Teacher.
We created our school with love
We want you to have the experience of your life by doing your TTC with us, that's why we created it puting a lot of love inside. Is not only that you will be having experienced teachers from all over the world and learning all the important aspects to become a good yoga teacher, it is also that you will be feeling that you are loved in our community and treated with respect.
We believe in Giving Back
That's why we decided to donate a percentage of our annual income to a social or environmental cause. This way we will be helping different organizations that are always trying to make this Island/planet a nicer one.
Keep an eye on our social media accounts to see the results!
