Yandara Yoga Teacher Training
Yandara offers a yoga teacher training program at its four-acre sanctuary in beautiful Baja, Mexico. While Yandara offers yoga teacher training courses across the globe, they are based in Baja where they offer teacher training courses every year. Each training program is approved by the Yoga Alliance and the curriculum is based on Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga teachings.
Program: Students can take a 26-day or 16-day 200-hour yoga teacher training course in Yandara, Mexico. The programs are limited to 24 students, and each program follows the same curriculum. However, the 26-day program is more relaxed and includes time for more in-depth exploration of the natural environment and the Baja Peninsula. Students should expect to wake up around 7:30am to start their day with yoga practice, meditation, lectures, workshops and more.
What we like: During training, students can live in cabins or luxury tents – think of it like glamping. Although the accommodations are simple, students feel closer to nature and the foundations of yoga, emphasizing the importance of breaking ties to material things.
