I took the 200hrs TTC with Bhud. It was an incredible experience. When I signed in for the TTC, I never really did Yoga... before. Bhud recommended to practice Yoga asana at least 3 months before the start of the course and I would totally agree with that. The course is really intense, so it was really hard for me in the beginning. But with Bhuds patience and with all the passion and joy she brought for teaching yoga you will be captivated and motivated to learn all the wisdom of Bhud. Not only in a physical way, I got the chance to feel my body in a way I never felt it before. I learned so much during this whole month and I appreciate all of it. With things like the morning in silence, I learned to grant myself all the space I need to live in piece and harmony. Next to the "normal" lessons we also had some classes in another environment, like the cooking class or the farm day, where we had the chance to learn a whole different lifestyle.I would totally recommend this course for everyone in every section of life.Thank you so much for giving me the chance to learn so much more about my body and my mind, to find my spirit and joy in life.read more

Great yoga training, with a focus on how to move to prevent injury and gain a deeper understanding of your body. One of... the things I really appreciated about Bhud's approach is the emphasis on experimentation and constant learning, going beyond the standard yoga poses and exploring on your own how your body feels through different movements. My husband and I have been practicing yoga for just a few months, and we feel that our yoga practice has developed tremendously through this 5 day experience. Healthy, yummy food and a peaceful place to learn!read more

Xhale Yoga YTT with Bhud went beyond my expectations. With all the yoga teacher trainings out there, I’m glad this... one chose me:) Bhud is a humble, energetic and passionate human being sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience from her heart. I found her approach to yoga very refreshing and unique, and got just what I came for-to understand a component of yoga in a way that feels light and lifted. With two words, she can breathe ease into your asana, and help you stay connected from the core. By not focusing on “perfect alignment”, she acknowledges each person’s wisdom for adjusting their body to their own structural needs, and cultivating the skill of listening to one’s own body first and foremost. She is hyper aware of helping find the perfect balance in each asana for the hips and spine, and guiding the release of any tension in the postures we might strain these areas. This was such a critical foundation I found so necessary in my practice of yoga, alongside the many pranayama exercises to assist our breathing patterns.When it comes to theory and yoga philosophy, Bhud embodies whatever she teaches. Honest to the core, she teaches out of direct experience and practice; there is nothing “conceptual” about her teachings. Using many of her life stories as examples, she goes beyond the paper and challenges us to act from a place of knowing ourselves, rather than repeating to others what we do not yet fully understand.What I really loved in this course was the freedom I experienced in myself while I was here-she allowed us to find what it is within yoga that spoke to us individually, rather than conforming ourselves to certain expectations. The yoga practice really becoming our own, as we shift our awareness into curiosity. The curiosity within each asana for example, why we do what we do, and how to allow it to work for us to expand and soften even more.While every day was for sure physically and energetically stimulating, Bhud cultivated such a fluid flow and creative focus in her YTT offering, the material felt vibrant and alive. Formless movement, elements dance, chakra meditations, mantra singing, and self expression were all encouraged highlights weaved throughout the training that I really appreciated. Alongside outings in permaculture, thai traditional massage, thai cooking class, and waterfall escapades outside the shala, the activities she offered during the month were filled with endless richness and diversity.Besides these few points, the food at Xhale Yoga is simply incredible; I felt nourished from the inside out during my entire time there. Bhud creates the menu herself that comes to life and brings art as well into the plates! I would say Bhud is an artist of yoga; and each asana she creates is freshly painted on her impermanent canvas of life, with the openness to always be changing and learning every single day. “Never stop learning,'' she says. Well, that is something a true teacher can say.My heart is filled with love and gratitude for this woman for teaching me, not only on the yoga mat, but extending beyond-for giving me the foundation from this course to set my path in yoga and life with such a unique perspective and light. THANK YOU Bhud!read more

I found Bhud to be so generous with her teaching, there was so much additional information provided to ensure that the... yoga practice you develop as a result of the retreat is tailored to your own needs - this at least makes it easier to keep to. The retreat provides a good overview of Yoga philosophy and offers experimental interpretations. I would say you should try and at least have some prior knowledge of yoga practice before you attend, but you don't need huge experience. The food and accommodation are excellent. Pai is a dream.read more

I have been meaning to write a review of my time at Xhale for quite some time. Here i go, finally getting my act... together and spreading the love about a wonderful yoga, mindfulness, chanting, healthy living, team bonding, love sharing retreat, in outback Pai. My 57 year old mother and I (26) did the retreat in July 2016. The week was incredible. The yoga was fantastic and was suitable for the young, for the old, for the inexperienced and for the experienced. I met some wonderful people that I am still in contact with today. Bhud is a beautiful person with a contagious laugh. I loved hearing her yoga and life stories. Her and her team made the week very memorable and introduced me to many things that I have taken into my every day life since then. I am eating healthier, yogiing more, and am now a proud owner of a Netti pot. Thanks Bhud!read more

Having experiences many Yoga studios and retreats I can confidently say that Xhale Yoga with Bhud is a wonderful chance... for everybody to experience Yoga on a deeper and more personal level. Her retreat is an oasis of daily Yoga Asana practice, delicious and healthy soul food (prepared by two lovely chefs!), inspiring philosophy classes, and an array of various activities from chanting to sound meditation and hot spring nights (bring your bikini !). Budh's years of experience in teaching and self-practice and the relaxed atmosphere in the middle of nature make the retreat an adventurous and inspiring "reset button". You will return home with tons of ideas and tipps on how to incorporate Yoga in your day to day routine and how to live a more fulfilling, loving and healthy life! P.S.: Budh's contagious laugh alone is worth the trip 🙂 P.P.S: Pai is a beautiful and relaxed place surrounded by nature and wonderful people - I can totally recommend it and would go there again!read more

My experience at Xhale Yoga with Bhud was not a good one. it started off badly on the first night when I approached her... and she totally dismissed my, medically diagnosed, foot condition, a bone deformity, that requires specially made insoles on a daily basis and without which I am in constant pain. when I explained that it was difficult for me to balance in bare feet as my feet do not touch the floor as they would without the condition she told me to show her and then informed me that I have an 'i can't attitude. I felt offended by this as I have 2 medical conditions called fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue which, 8 months ago, rendered me bed ridden and on high dosages of pan killers. It is testament to my 'I can' attitude that I am now medication free and able to travel the world while seeking to further improve my heath. The yoga retreat was meant to be an integral step in helping me improve further still. it is ironic as the name I was allocated on arrival was compassion and I was shown none of this when I approached Bhud. The following morning HUD led us through another yoga session which, as a beginner, I found to be too fast paced and was unable to keep up. Bhud was too busy showing off her expertise to notice or even offer alternative, easier ways to complete the flow. We were then told to freeatyle and when I stopped all together she asked me if I had a problem. I explained that it was all too fast and she responded with 'what do you want to do?. when I just looked at her perplexed she followed it up with ' I can't change the programme just for you'. Again, I looked at her perexes and she reiterated 'what do you want to do'' No offers of help, nothing. Feeling extremely intimidated I left the class. Bhud showed no feelings about this at all. she didn't approach me at all to see if there was a way to resolve this. She didn't need to because I had already paid her cash up front so she had nothing to lose. I had to stay overnight as I had nowhere else to go so bhud had ample opportunity to come and see me but chose not to. I subsequently applied for a partial refund as I had mentioned on the application that was a complete beginner and despite this the application was accepted. The first two emails were ignored completely and only when I threatened to write a negative review in the public domain did I receive a less than satisfactory reply from Bhud, which she, unprofessionally copied to the rest of the group in a bid to gain them as witnesses. She was very clear that a partial refund would not be considered and she wasn't bothered about my review going public. I responded with a full, detailed response as to why i felt my request was fair but accepted that I couldn't force her to issue a partial refund. Suffice to say she has ignored that email too. So here I am. I later learned that I was not the only one struggling and qhen others raised concerns after I had left the class Bhud was forced to slow the class down. A bit late for me however. Now am aware that as a lone descended here my integrity will no doubt be questioned. I am, however, happy to share copies of the correspondence shared between us with anyone who asks. I am disappointed to confirm that my first venture into the yoga lifestyle has left me with a reluctance to pursue it further. What a shameread more
