Very professional and knowledgeable. Every bit of information, explanation made sense.Incredible link between theory and practice. Intensive study to gain broad perspectives on what constitutes yoga and life. On the personal note: You immediately, from the moment you enter shala become part of a group, feeling welcomed and appreciated as individual, as person, as friend. And all that thanks to Nina Vukas and her assistant Jasna. Thank you both for all the support and make me fall in love with Yoga again!
(Katja Gorjup, Sri Lanka TTC 2019.)
It was a fantastic journey - both learning about the foundations of yoga, principles and techniques as well as for yourself and peers around. Hugely memorable.
(Eliza Lees, Sri Lanka TTC 2019.)
I did the 200 hour YTT in Sri Lanka with Nina and Jasna (and Sanjin) and it was the best decision for me personally. Couldn‘t be happier with everything I learned, Nina‘s Integral Vinyasa method is so interesting, conclusive and a very holistic way of practising Yoga. Can‘t wait to do the next part of my training with these lovely people again! Love to all.
(Anna Sri Lanka TTC 2019.)
This course was even better than I thought it would be. It took me deeper into the practice of yoga and gave me all the tools I need to begin teaching. Nina's presence, her enthusiasm and genuine passion really brought the best out of every student. I learnt so much, from yogic tradition and history to anatomy and how to put together a class. I couldn't recommend this course enough.
(Catriona Smith, Sri Lanka TTC)
The course, whilst demanding was very well structured and taught with clarity and great insight. I unhesitatingly recommend Spanda Vinyasa to anyone wanting to become a Yoga Teacher
(Phil Stone, Sri Lanka TTC 2019.)
My time with Spanda Vinyasa school is a time I will cherish forever. The content that was put together with such a wealth of knowledge and love, our instructors that gave their all in every single session, my peers who became each others support that felt more like family - everything was thoughtfully curated and created an experience that allowed me to maximize my time and learning. All that I gained at Spanda school has allowed me to propel myself into the next chapter of my life, both personally and professionally. I'm beyond grateful for my TTC and felt like I was exactly where I needed to be. Thank you!
(Kristen Cooper, Ericeira Portugal 2018.)
This experience as a whole was one of the best experiences of my life. Ericeira was the perfect place for a yoga teacher training as it was so nice to have a little town to venture into to get away from the hostel and where we spent the majority of our time. The restaurants, shops, and beaches were a really amazing addition to the teacher training itself. I really loved venturing out for supper with some others or having a quick swim in the ocean during the lunch break. The hostel was also a lovely place to stay and the family that owns it seem like really nice people. Celest and Nina were amazing, supportive, knowledgable teachers and I loved learning from them and growing over the three weeks. They are both so amazing at what they do and I loved that they both had different things to offer. I feel really grateful to have taken my yoga teacher training with them, not to mention to walk away with the vast array of skills I now have and can share with others with them being so different and having so many different perspectives and pieces of information to share. From Nina's easy to understand method to Celest's creative sequencing and anatomy knowledge, I feel like I have an edge moving forward as I begin to teach my own classes. I hope to learn from these two amazing people in the future!
(Ericeira, Portugal Intensive 2018.)
For me it was all just magical, everything flowed, Nina and Celest together makes an amazing team! Nina with her chill, spiritual way of being and teaching and Celest with her amazing enthusiasm of life and teaching. It was a big pleasure to be your students, once again Thank you!
(Ivan, Ericeira Portugal Intensive 2018.)
I started my yoga journey with Nina in 2014, and since then completed her RYT200, RYT500 and Prenatal RPYT. I can only thank her for the teachings, support and knowledge that she gifted me with. It completely turned my life upside down in most positive ways. The method she teaches fully incorporates yoga philosophy, anatomy&biomechanics, movement and meditation into a very fluid, safe and creative classes. What I like the most is the intelligent, progressive way of sequencing, following certain biomechanic movements, elements, chakras or doshas, which make this a living practice, for everyone, in whatever state they are in. You will learn how to use the tools that we are given to make this a healing practice and balance your body and mind. I have studied with many well known teachers since and during my trainings with Nina, and through all my doubts, search, questions and experiences on the way, I always find myself coming back to what she taught me, and feel her presence and support as a teacher through all my life situations.
(Gea Jankovic RYT200 2015, RPYT 2016, RYT500 2017)
My feeling about the training is that it was simply fantastic. The yoga shala, the beautiful morning practice in the jungle, the comprehensive study material, the exceptionally high quality instruction (from You, Yasna, Eva and Tara), Your thoughtful teaching methodology, the authenticity of the program, Sri Lanka as a country, the small class size, the diversity of our student group, our accommodations and meals at The Pavilion, The Shala staff & the amazing meals they prepared for us, the salt water pool, Sanjin's incredible photography/videography work, the daily course schedule- with lunch break and pool time, the online anatomy course. It was an exceptional package. I have already recommended it to several people on my travels through Sri Lanka.
(Marietta, Sri Lanka TTC intensive 2018.)
I finished Sangha yoga school in September 2017. When starting, my idea was to learn how to practice asana with more understanding. The school programme in Sangha was well organized, all of our teachers came prepared and we got the schedule for classes on time. Theoretical knowledge that we got during lectures we were able to apply on our Karma yoga classes, so it was a great connection between theory and real life. We had some homework which was also a good and a challenging thing in my opinion.
In the end of our TT we were able to create different types of vinyasa flow classes with understanding why we do things the certain way. Our teacher Nina is very dedicated and passionate when teaching. She has good knowledge and explanation for everything she says. She was supportive to us when we needed it, she encouraged us to explore yoga, and to find our own way as future teachers. I am honoured i got a chance to learn from Nina and to attend Sangha Om yoga school.
(Mario Furac, dr.med, 200hour TTC)
Since I first started practicing yoga I had an urge to learn more than just how to do asanas or breathe Ujayyi. Being a part of Teacher Training with Nina Vukas was exciting and inspiring experience. I learned a lot. Nina and other experts who were teaching us for a year are great in transfering their knowledge and motivating through sharing their personal stories and experinces. It was a good balance of theory, practice, teaching each other and putting into practice everything you learn. I felt confident teaching my first class knowing that Nina taught me well. I feel I made a right choice and I am continuing my education with Nina and other teachers.

Being accepted to Sangha Yoga School was a dream come true. Going to this school gave me knowledge that is helping me doing well also in my other day job and personal life. I think everybody who is working in their life with people, should enter this school. Also Nina is beautiful teacher who has lots of knowledge and her lectures are always relaxed and funny which is exactly what we need in life. Warmly recommended :)
Monja Gobec, 2015./16. (TT200)
This is the best school for vinyasa yoga in Croatia and this part of Europe. The knowledge and the skills that you get are very wide, the teachers are very professional, openminded and helpful. I am very happy and grateful that I chose this school. :) Thank you for everything!
Jasna Perin, 2014. /15. (TT200, Prenatal)
Teachers at Sangha Yoga School have done a great job in preparing me for my journey as a yoga teacher. I have gained useful knowledge and met many great people. Working atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed. I would recommend this school to anyone especially those who want to deepen their Vinyasa flow practice.
Svjetlana Dekic, 2013/14. (TT200)
I am so happy I have decided to enroll in this yoga school. This journey helped me to focus on what is important, my practice changed to another dimension. Amazing experience.
Sunčica Bulešić, Pula (TT 200, 2012./2013.)
My decision to continue yoga education came rather impulsively. After my initial Sivananda yoga training, Vinyasa yoga style was intriguing and interesting to me, so naturally, I decided to attend Nina’s school as she is as a pioneer of Vinyasa in Croatia. Nina is a very inspiring teacher who learned from the best and shares her knowledge without holding back and with deep understanding for her student’s needs. I learned a lot about Vinyasa method with her and so much more; I gained confidence and inspiration to teach and study more. Namaste!
Senka Ljubic, 2012/14. (TT 300)
To deepen my yoga education after completing 200 hour programme I choose Sangha yoga school because I wanted to learn Vinyasa yoga principles. Nina Vukas, our lead teacher, learned from the best and transferred her knowledge to us through interesting, logical flow workshops.
Tena Rebrenjak 2012./14. (TT300)
I picked this school primarily because of Nina, a beautiful teacher who shares her knowledge wholeheartedly, amazing guest teachers with so much wisdom and knowledge.
