2017 TESTIMONIALS 
"Overall, I loved the training and the whole experience. I am so glad I did it and I haven't looked back since - I love teaching and it has absolutely transformed my practice. I made some great new friends and have great respect for Sibylle and Naomi, they are both excellent teachers and were willing to answer any question or query even after a long day delivering course content themselves. They had a very positive attitude and were also very encouraging."

"A lovely course with inspirational teachers who I learned a lot from."

"Thank you! Honestly, I couldn't be happier that I chose to do the training with you both. It was the most incredible month. I didn't realise how much I would learn from the training, or how much I would enjoy it. It was difficult at times, but never too difficult and you couldn't have paid me to quit at any stage. I wasn't even sure if I wanted to teach, when I signed up, but that changed almost as soon as we began. Teaching my first class wasn't even scary. I had butterflies beforehand, for sure, but I felt ready for it. So, well done! You both did an incredible job."

"I am very happy I did it. It was a fantastic month. I left not only with more clarity about what I want to do and about my capabilities, but with a wonderful group of friends and support network."

"All aspects were covered in detail and I enjoyed the discussion around various areas of philosophy or the 'real talk' about the reality of being a yoga teacher and being efficient with the business side of things. I really enjoyed the anatomy and teaching clinics too as they were generally structured around content we had covered earlier in the day so it was great to apply theory to practice."

"Both Naomi and Sibylle were punctual, approachable and professional in their manner which was very helpful in such an intensive atmosphere. Though it was intense, it was also light hearted and we managed to have some laughs and fun along the way which is so important too and was thanks to Naomi and Sibylle too!"

"Naomi & Sibylle put together a fantastic course and created the most amazing three weeks. They were unbelievably patient, generous with their time and knowledge, and so supportive. Still to this day they check in by email to see if we are doing alright or to let us know about upcoming job opportunities. That is really going above and beyond but I appreciate it more than I can say."

"Naomi and Sibylle had HEAPS of knowledge between them! There was very rarely a question that was asked that either of them didn't have the answer for and if / when it did happen they made sure to go find out for us."

"This course was an amazing adventure and experience for me. I'm glad I decided to go for it. I've learned a lot about my strengths and did very well overcoming my weaknesses- so I'm extremely proud of myself. Teachers did great job, and I think it was timed very well, I feel confident if I wanted to teach anytime soon. Atmosphere between students was unbelievable, love, trust and caring for each other- I'm grateful for getting to meet all those amazing people."

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT SIBYLLE'S CLASSES
I love Sibylle's yoga classes, she conveys a depth of yoga knowledge in a very precise format that is easily received and relevant. Her style of talking through the Vinyasa flow postures is amazing, it feels like my body and breath are responding not only to her words but also to a vibrational tone that I can feel in the movement. Sibylle's understanding of mindfulness is very in depth and she beautifully portrays this throughout the class as she nudges people into present moment awareness in their yoga postures. All this and a warmth and sense of humor too. A beautiful style of teaching that is quite unique in my experience.
Louis Heath


I recently took Sibylle's Yoga 1 Class in Dundrum for the first time. I've been practicing yoga for about 5 years now, but from time to time I like to take a Yoga 1 class to slow things down for a more relaxing class. What I think defines an amazing yoga teacher is the ability to cater to everyone in the class's physical needs at the same time. A great yoga teacher knows how to modify every yoga pose so that a student can get the benefit of the stretch no matter what their physical limitations may be. Sibylle did this and much more. She was very aware of everyone's needs in an over 25 person filled class. She also clearly explained the benefits, origins, and history of the poses. She then showed how each pose can advance and how students can build their practice while cheerily motivating and encouraging everyone to believe in themselves. In Sibylle's classes, you will come out feeling relaxed, empowered, and stronger all at the same time.
Rachel Sikorski


Sibylle embodies everything good about yoga, finding the fine balance between nourishing the mind, body and spirit through her practice. Her class is always challenging, never repetitive and her guidance as a teacher is rewarding to all who want to learn. She is inspirational and has a natural gift as a teacher.
Jean


I go to Sibylle's Tuesday and Thursday morning classes (when I can get in them!) every week and always sign up for her banks of retreat classes (like Easter). She was one of the first teachers I had when I started a practice (beginning of last year) and she has truly made me fall in love with yoga. Sibylle is an extraordinary teacher -- very thorough, thoughtful, and clearly puts a huge amount of preparation into her classes. Also, her classes are HARD -- which is awesome. Every student is pushed in a way personal to them, and each class is framed with a kind of lesson or intention. She also notices her students in a way that's rare -- she is quick to point out good things, notices improvement, offers adjustments or comfort and really gets to know her students and their practice. The lesson and tips and perspective she offers, from beginning to end, are the elements I apply most of all in my general practice outside of class. She also creates a very unique experience for her students -- the tone is set carefully, the atmosphere is created and adjusted over the course of the time, and there's something kind of poetic about the whole world she creates for the hour. You feel like you are entering into an experience -- a kind of gift. I have never had another class like this during my time practicing! I totally fan-girl on Sibylle - -and I'm not the only one!

Sibylle’s classes are quite simply special. I have been doing yoga for quite a while and have found in Sybylle a teacher who challenges me physically and mentally to be better. Her classes are strong and dynamic and so thoughtfully put together and flow so well that time flies by. She understands how the body works and gives such detailed descriptions of the poses and the anatomy that you find yourself understanding and being able to achieve poses you would never normally attempt. She does this with a philosophical edge and inspires you to really think about your perceptions of life and how yoga can help you in your day to day. Sybille is an exceptional yoga teacher who teaches a unique and consistently high quality challenging and thought provoking class.

Sibylle is a wonderful teacher, one of the best I have had in 15 years of practicing yoga. Her classes are quite dynamic and challenging, but always full of humour and kindness. She approaches her teaching in a holistic way – integrating a quite precise physical asana practice with more philosophical aspects to yoga - delivered with a warmth of spirit that is completely instinctive. I always come away from one of her classes feeling refreshed and inspired. I cannot recommend her enough.
David Cairnduff


Sibylle's classes are challenging, fun and filled with music, laughter and energy. In each class she weaves an inspiring philosophical theme through the poses and meditations seamlessly. Her classes are life-affirming!
Sara


I signed up for the 4-week all you can stretch to offer with Yoga Dublin in October but when it came to real life economics/one class a week I chose to attend Sibylle's Tuesday morning class. Reasons? Sibylle is unfailingly encouraging and creative, managing both with a class of very different abilities. Her talk throughout the class (can't emphasise how important this is, even given my limited experience of yoga) is thoughtful and aspirational, personal and often funny. Her programme is interesting and I imagine has taken a lot of preparation, though it appears effortless. Every week's class seems different yet connected. I feel the loss whenever I miss a class. I wish Sibylle well in her career and hope she will stay with us Tuesday people.
Mary Finn


Sibylle's classes are highly-motivating - a result of her expertise & deep knowledge of yoga, the thoughtful intention-setting that is a part of many classes and the carefully chosen music! Even in a busy, fast-moving class, Sibylle spots the adjustments that students need to make and explains them extremely clearly. I always come out feeling (at least!) ten times better than I did before I went in! In particular, the early morning classes set the tone for a great day. 
Susan Leahy


Sibylle Dallman was one of my first teachers and from the beginning her unique talents were clear but my appreciation for her abilities have only grown with time. She has a brilliant mind and her knowledge in human anatomy and physiology as it relates to yoga is only matched by her insight into the human condition. Sibylle does not claim that yoga is the cure all to life's troubled waters but a pathway to help manoeuver through them. I have seen first hand her kind nature and generous spirit towards her students which helps to create the perfect atmosphere for learning. Sibylle remains a constant inspiration in my own daily practice.

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT NAOMI'S CLASSES
Naomi has a talent for creating challenging , yet enjoyable classes. I suppose the best recommendation is I keep returning for more. I have problems with my neck and upper back and was encouraged to try Yoga by my Physiotherapist. I am so glad I found Naomi as I have been much improved since I started her classes. She is nurturing and pushes you to greater things without you realising it. I feel totally safe as she treats all in her class as individuals with individual strengths and weaknesses while still uniting us as a group. She always has time to explain or give advice. I am in awe of her expertise and aspire to improve with her help I would have no reservation in recommending her as a teacher.
Helen


I have been attending yoga classes with Naomi for about a year and have absolutely loved every session. I have attended a lot of yoga classes in the past with different teachers, and only really viewed it as a way to get fit. With Naomi, as well as getting a great workout, I feel like she has allowed me to really progress my practice and help me understand what I'm doing and how I can influence my body and mind. I would and have recommended her classes to anyone!
Megan


Naomi is unpretentious with a lot of humour and good nature. She brings her extensive knowledge of yoga to the class in a way that is accessible to us all. I have been attending Naomi's classes for over a year and I always leave every class feeling inspired. She creates a safe environment to teach us not only the yoga poses and meditations but also lessons in how we can bring what we learn on the mat into our lives.
Louise


Naomi is always so positive, her classes are enjoyable and allow you to challenge yourself. Her instructions are easy to follow and she is full of encouragement.
Aisling Ryan


I have been attending Naomi's classes for about 2 years now and I look forward to them every week. She is a very attentive and encouraging teacher and her instructions are easy to follow. She also incorporates a nice mixture of different themes, meditation and postures, so I always come away having learned something​ new, and there is always time for a laugh and a smile in the classes too!
Alice

I have been attending yoga classes with Naomi since late 2015 right into the new year and I must say, I really enjoyed every single session. I have found her mentoring techniques to be excellent, from the use of clear, colourful and descriptive language to the right guidance and demonstration of movement to help me improve my form and abilities. Wholeheartedly loving yoga,
Eric Whelan


Naomi is naturally an excellent teacher who is very much in tune with her students' needs, levels and abilities. She has a wonderful ability to put everyone in her class at ease, while also ensuring that everyone is progressing in the correct way. I could not recommend her highly enough.
Ciara Walsh


Naomi teaches her classes with infectious enthusiasm combined with a depth of knowledge and care, coupled with kind humour which helps greatly as you hold that pose for another few seconds... A wonderful teacher,passionate about sharing her practice and keenly interested in helping her students develop;progress and grow their practice.
Edel


I have been taking Naomi's class for about 4 years now. Naomi is an excellent instructor. There is always a great sense of calm and encouragement in her classes. I feel that Naomi brings out a lot of people during a class, especially when it comes to trying new things and pushing oneself. I always leave class with a clear head and knowing that I learned something new about yoga and myself.
Emma


I have been attending class with Naomi for the last 3 years and I have to say they are a joy. Naomi is an excellent teacher and her classes are fun, well paced and informative. She has a great way of explaining postures to ensure you get the best out of them. She has a very personal approach and you leave the class feeling like she really knows you and is there to help.
Emma Robinson

Naomi’s class is at 7am on a Monday morning, a horrific time from a bone fide non morning person and yet I find myself setting the alarm clock to be there on time.  Her classes seem gentle but are very precise with a strong flow yet done in a gentle calm thoughtful manner.  You feel renewed and ready for the day after her class! Naomi is an inspiring teacher who challenges your body but calms your mind.
