Testimonials

What our students are saying

Anusara Yoga Teacher

Stephanie Just

The AYTT with Kai Hill is by far the best thing I have experienced in my life so far. It surpasses without a doubt all that I was able to take away for myself in my studies and subsequent trainings. Kai is absolutely great, such a loving lateral thinker who questions things and stands up for his opinion. It gives me unspeakable pleasure to be able to learn from him. I try to absorb everything within his training and thanks to Kai I feel so much desire to dive deeper and deeper into the matter of Anusara. The program he designed is a pure gift for me and fulfills me very much. It came into my life just like it was meant to! Kai's personality is so authentic and his way of teaching so joyful and convincing. His enthusiasm for Anusara is so palpable! He lives Anusara with every pore and this in a way that is contagious. He succeeds in making Anusara Yoga in its complexity tangible for me. Thanks to Kai, I feel so much desire to get deeper into this world of Anusara, the philosophy, anatomy, sequencing, its alignment principles and methodology of teaching. Kai exudes an irrepressible lust for life and in my eyes feels called to touch and connect people through the path of yoga. He loves to see his students grow and does so in an unconventional and motivating way. His teaching style is gripping, challenging and engaging. He fills the room with his presence and radiance. The fact that Kai has managed to attract experienced teachers from all over Germany for his training speaks for him without a doubt. I look forward to my further journey with Kai and his inspiring style!

Anusara Yoga Teacher

Anna Mund

As a stay at home mum of two small children, I often felt overwhelmed and like I wasn’t headed anywhere. The immersions and the 200 hour teacher training with Kai, showed me how much life has to offer. My whole perspective of life changed to the better. My friends and family observed a much happier and more content Anna. For that I am so grateful, Kai! I was practically a beginner Yogi but that didn’t mean I couldn’t be part of the process and the path to a higher self. It was a no brainer for me, that I had to join the 300 hrs Advanced Teacher Training, too. Kai and Lydia are amazing teachers and provided so much more than the Teacher Student relationship. They are loving people, who go the extra mile to make you feel at home, in a team of random people, who are all on the same journey. The in depth knowledge Kai provides, combined with Anusara’s “Principles of Alignment”, turn an ordinary yoga practice into an experience you should not miss out on. I cannot recommend the immersions and teacher trainings highly enough!

Anusara Yoga Teacher

Lucía Argüelles

Training with Kai was great! His teaching style offers a fine balance between structure and flow, discipline and so much fun. The intensive ATT was a very enriching experience and helped take my teaching skills to another level. Lydia and Kai complement each other beautifully during the trainings, they are a powerful duo. They genuinely share their own teaching/ entrepreneurial experience and do a lot of coaching throughout the modules, which keeps it very real, useful and inspiring! Chris completes the perfect team, he’s warm, super organised and always available to support students - both during the workshops and at any time in between! Highly recomendable.

Anusara Yoga Teacher

Karen Mitchell

I have been a qualified yoga teacher for over 15years. Although I didn’t know Kai Hill but what I read about the course and the other educators on board sounded perfect. From our first day on the course I felt part of a Kula. This was down to Kai and his ability to welcome everyone with warmth but also with space. The course is for someone serious and intent on learning the beautiful Anusara system and all it entails. The philosophy, anatomy, class themes and The UPA’s A lot! Also discovering and learning to use your own personality in the art of teaching. Kai’s teaching method was precise and very thorough. Also fun. Kai also had great support by Lydia and Chris on the course. Kai and the support teachers were available to talk to when any worries or concerns arose. Kai teaches from a very generous place and shows outwardly his delighted to share his depth of knowledge and experience without conceit. I would be confident to recommend Kai Hill teacher training courses to other students. Two very valuable things I have discovered from my training so far with Kai and his team is to be authentic “be you” and of course be prepared!
