Student reviews:


"My experience at Hari OM was a transformative, educational, and life-changing experience! Exceptional instruction in a caring, loving environment where you feel safe to really explore what your gift is as a yoga teacher. The course also combined deeper than typical teachings in philosophy of yoga plus Ayurveda – great additions! I highly recommend this course."


- Sarah F. (Yoga Alliance)


"I had a great experience as a student in the YTT 2018 with Matea. She is a remarkable teacher and "all around expert in academic and physical aspects yoga."


- Andres R. (LinkedIn)


I attended the Yoga and Ayurveda teacher training course in March 2018. This was hands down THE BEST decision I could have made. We learned about philosophy, history of Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Ayurveda, Business of Yoga, and Asanas.

Matea and Dr. Ada were very informative and available for questions or concerns. Both teachers have been studying Yoga and Ayurveda for most of their lives and are EXTREMELY knowledgeable and passionate.

I completed the course and received a certification as an Ayurvedic Practitioner and a certification from Yoga Alliance.

I think being in the beautiful jungles of Costa Rica made the experience even better being surrounded by so much life force energy.

It was certainly an experience that will enrich me for the rest of my life. The best part is that the learning doesn’t stop after you graduate. Matea has her own private FB group where we can post along with the other teachers. She’s also very detailed and responsive via messenger.

Thank you Hari-Om Yoga and Ayurveda from the bottom of my heart for teaching me these amazing tools and being so supportive on this journey.
