There are many of us looking for a better world to live in, to share, and celebrate every day of our lives, not in isolation, but together, as a family, in community. We all are confident that we have much to contribute, each of us have an infinite potential, a creativity we cannot even imagine, we simply have to make the decision to explore and carry it out, most of the time it remains a mere dream of something that could have been, we now have the opportunity to consent, the decision is in you.
The maximum participants in the group is 22.

It is an honor for Comunidad Om Shanti to share a little bit about themselves, wishing always that is for the best of all, that's the main intention at least of all the teachers and members of the community who hopefully you will meet.
Describing the teachers is a must, because without them, this beautiful experience will be not possible and of course without you too. In that way both parts can learn from each other, this is some of the beauty of this gathering in which all are the same. During the month spent with Comunidad om Shanti, both you and them, will share as much as you can all the experiences, techniques or paths that helps everyone, just to be a better person and human beings. This is one of their principal aims and of course that you share yourself too. That is why from the second or the third week the participants become assistants and later on, the forth week and on the final presentation the student will give a hatha yoga class.
You will feel comfortable and safe because all the teachers are more than prepared, and dedicate 100% of their time to share the Word of Yoga.
This is a very important and delicate topic for Comunidad om Shanti and for the “Yoga World” so they have prepared two kinds of answers, one spiritual and the other material, and of course this is just their humble way to feel and think about it.
"Let’s start from the gross to the subtle as in the yoga class. At the end of the program you will get a diploma from our Yoga School (COMUNIDAD OM SHANTI) that is register as a Foundation for different projects of social service, with all the documents of the teachers proving that they had been trained in the Yoga Science. We are certified by the most recognized yoga institution around the world called Sivananda Asharam and Bihar Yoga Bharathi, being the presidents of this places Swami Sivananda, paramahamsa Satyananda saraswati, Swami Niranjananda saraswati, who thought me personally The science of yoga, meditation and community living which signed a document in which certifies I can teach too.
I'm sharing this with you not in a form of ego, but as to make you feel comfortable and safe about the place you are about to come. Before this I want to make very clear that we are not related or registered with Yoga Alliance by any means and that we are not responsible of getting the certification with them, this is a completely different process, that every individual must follow after any teachers training that partakes, of course if the school is certified by yoga alliance is easier to get the certification, we are not, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get it, some of our old students and teachers did.
Now let’s change a little bit the lent and the focus, where the real diploma it’s you, not a piece of paper, and of course I understand exactly what you mean by the society closing doors because lack of some kind of registration, but I have good news for you, that closed door is a gift from life in this way you continue searching for another door that is yours, that nobody can close for you because is always there open to us and to everyone and to everything to flow in the river of life. Just we need to tune our selves, desires, thoughts wishes with the universe ones and all the doors will open.
In India they say that Ganesh is a strong force within us like the elephant that removes the obstacles, but is the one that also put obstacles in the way when he/she perceives that you are not going in the right way. I realized that is about, my confidence, that is about myself if I really want to make my dream of becoming a yoga teacher and to spread the word of love, there is nothing can stop me, even if I need to teach in the park, on the beach, wherever.
This is the Yoga we want to transmit, one that can be apply to the daily life at any moment, of course after the 200 hrs Yttc all the students will be more than ready to give a very nice class in front of many people, levels, etc." David Callado

Comunidad Om Shanti is located in the beautiful South Pacific Coast of Mexico in a very small rural village called Mazunte in Oaxaca State. Mazunte is a very special village because of its contrast, in one hand is the beauty of the sea, the mountains, the nature, the stars, but in the other hand as being in a rural area that doesn't have the same comfort and commodities than in a city. For example Comunidad Om Shanti does not have running water all days, just three days per week and for about two hours they need to take care of water. Mazunte doesn't have garbage truck recollection, they need to separate the garbage and treat it. This is very important for the yogi to understand, that they are going to a humble area and a humble community.
The Bahias de Huatulco International Airport is very close from the center, less than one hour same as Puerto Escondido Airport, less than one hour, these are the recommended ways to get to the area.
Another part of the community project is the vegetarian restaurant, also known as Prasad. This is the provision of the 3 main meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Here, the community specially takes care of the cleanliness and preparation process, using different methods to ensure quality in the tradition of Hare Krishnas. Most of the participants have previously lived in ashrams where they learn the process of not just cooking but offering the food to the supreme reality that of course lives within us. What we eat is not just food, but also medicine for the soul. Food is not included in the price. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, the price will be approx. 100 MXN per day or about 8 USD.
