Thanks for an absolutely amazing yoga-experience. I’m full of inspiration and excitement for yoga and movement, and I truly admire your approach to yoga as an open practice both on and off the mat. That yoga can be both playful, intense, fluid and slow but also almost trance-like with music, jumps and handstand-technique. THIS is an eyeopener. And a great epiphany and joy for me. You have great knowledge about yoga, movement and anatomy, and I’m grateful that you have shared ALL of your GOLD with us. Thank you. I can’t wait to explore more of the animal yoga universe and share this with my students. They are going to love it.

"In the last few weeks I participated at Enrico's 200-hour yoga teacher training as a way to improve my own personal practice and to open the doors for a potential future carrier. In Stromboli, a beyond beautiful location, the setting was amazing and particular; the island is unique and isolated, so I embraced the possibility of some last minute organizational changes, adapted the Italian mentality, and enjoyed amazing meals while working hard and learning both about anatomy and practical aspects of yoga! "
"Thank you so much, Enrico, for this wonderful training. A dream came true. I lived one of the most beautiful moments of my life here in Stromboli. Your teaching is so interesting and so complete. I feel now ready to teach and to become the best teacher I can be. You have been an example for me during these days. I learned a lot and I feel so grateful having you as master. Stromboli was one of the most beautiful places I have seen. Our location was absolutely stunning. The hosts were the most welcoming persons I have met, and I have eaten the most delicious food. I feel so thankful for every moment of this training and for the most kind people I have met. You made me the happiest student of the world."
"In recent years, I have been practicing yoga as a student, I was looking for a course that was educational, professional, and that allowed me to deepen my knowledge of yoga, both in practical terms and theoretically. I followed the training of Enrico De Luca Zoe Animal Yoga, that has allowed me to do 200 hours of yoga useful for teaching."
"Enrico was absolutely meticulous in the teaching of Asana, Prana, and theory. Stromboli is a perfect location to practice yoga, considering its peculiarity of wild island"
"First of all, thank you for having made possible this formative experience and congratulations on your preparation and the passion that shines through your work. I was not sure what to expect from a teacher training because it was the first I've ever attended. Surely, having viewed many others, it is deduced clearly that your training approach is far from schematic. Taking the decision to participate in your teacher training was the first choice to a training approach that I would define unconventional and complete. In fact, the idea that I had made previously by knowing you personally, following your work, and carefully reading the detailed program you have kindly provided, has not changed during the teacher training. It was good, I enjoyed it, it was super flexible, and I think you are very very very very good."
"The proposed program for this teacher training is complex and original, so when I chose to participate, I was curious how the theory and practice of yoga would be integrated, with the experience to do in nature (hiking, sea, spas). The integration took place naturally: any time is yoga. This integration is the element that makes the difference in this course than others, and that is the added value for the student who wishes to become a teacher. Thanks, Enrico De Luca, for being a true teacher."
"The intense contact with nature was a key element of growth, transformation of the limits, and adaptability. Everything in nature is accomplished, the mind and body are in their natural rhythm, and the inner nodes melt. The theoretical and practical program and the experiential are extremely valid. Enrico, you're an exceptional teacher whom I respect and whom I trust, you do well to stay firm on your visions and ideas, characterize, and make unique your education. Thanks for everything, I am proud and honored to have you as a teacher."
"How many times have you given up to a little fun, and how many other times, fortunately not? I did not choose this path, it came to the right moment in my life as it was a visceral imprint to read the program. I followed my instincts, I had no particular expectations but inside I knew that I would need it. A journey with strangers that become "family", the nights with the light of candles and stars, the sounds of nature, say yes without thinking twice. The "I love you" said out loud are good for your heart. The challenges; the "I can" and in the end we've really done, the exceeded limits, forgotten and new ones to deal with. Yoga is everything and it's nothing, it's not all about asanas, or physical training, this experience has made me discover a part of me that I had repressed for too long, that part wild, immortal, alive and free, the existential condition that everyone should follow as a lifestyle to be happy. The performed activities have been experienced by me with all existing senses, totally appropriate in order that our teacher wanted to achieve, I take this opportunity to say thank you, for the first time I did not feel different, but an integral part something that I was living in secret without being understood, I found in him not only a guide but also a great friend. What I feel I have experienced it is not only a big improvement in my asanas in their knowledge and execution, but I restored an even deeper connection with my soul, my identity, with all of myself to others and the universe. Namaste "
“Teaching classes were really well covered. I loved the location. I would for sure recommend this course to other people.“
"Training of asanas and corrections / adjustments were amazing. I perfectly understood mistakes I came here with and learnt how to correct them. Interaction and communication classes were really interesting, too. Moreover, objectives of each day were well laid out: I am really happy with those aspects and I also find asana objectives more clear. Location was amazing and all the places we has classes were spectacular. I think we were very lucky in applying to this course."
“The best part of your instruction was teaching the asanas and the adjustments, this was excellent. Learning objectives were clear and we had the opportunity to do a lot of practice, I found this aspect essential to learn and I will continue to study valuable infos you gave us for years to become great! The location was amazing. I recommend this course.“
“I really enjoyed how interdisciplinary your teaching was. I enjoyed learning how history, geography and sociology shaped yoga. I also think it was great how you related the emotional and physical to asanas. The location was gorgeous, the views were enlightening and the sea was refreshing. Actually, I really enjoyed the whole experience and how comprehensive everything was. Understanding the why behind things is so essential."
“I really enjoyed learning about “true” yoga and its origins. I appreciated the details and learning how yoga came to be, “not” the modern version. I felt we learnt at a good pace, not too fast not too slow. I really enjoyed learning about adjustments. Locations were simply perfect, all of them! Overall, it was a wonderful experience that took me out my comfort zone, guided me to think differently and to approach my practice in a new way.“
Anatomy lessons were great, I learnt a lot. I loved Ischia, it is a very beautiful place. Hotel staff was nice and friendly, too.
"It was a complete immersion into emotions and knowledges in a way I loved to. I loved the location and I will recommend this course to other people for sure."
