Training Led By: Roksana Ubowska, E-RYT 500

Hiroko Taneda

I highly recommend Roksana and The Yoga Tree Okinawa RYT200 to anyone! This training covered various aspects of the yoga teaching beyond just asanas which really helped enrich my understanding of yoga and inspired me to continue learning more. She really knows how to apply the teachings of yoga into our day to day life which made the subject more easy to relate to. Roksana is such a lovely teacher, despite her wealth of knowledge, her humility and her eagerness to help was one of the main reasons that I was able to complete this 3 months course smoothly. I really thank her and my classmates for such an amazing experience.

Sabrina Shell

This course was extremely beneficial to my personal growth and I was extremely pleased with the information, activities, and general energy Roksana and her studio provided. I don't know if anyone really ever knows what to expect when they sign up for teacher trainings, but this was beyond my wildest dreams of what I could have imagined this experience would bring to me. I would highly recommend and encourage anyone who wants to have a place that supports your growth and knowledge in yoga to attend the YTT at The Yoga Tree Okinawa.

Reyad Ahmed

I went to Yoga teacher training without any prior knowledge of Yoga. Roksana does it brilliantly and assured me that yoga is for everyone. I never imagined I'd be able to do what she taught and practiced with me. Gentle and firm, professional and friendly, precise and adaptable. embodies the kind of teacher we'd like to meet in all aspects of life Thank you very much!

I highly recommend the school.
