The shala is a magical place and I loved how all asana practices are taken with regular students of the shala as it provided us with hands on experience to assist and adjust during some classes. Anna is such an inspirational person and has taught us everything and more than what I had expected to learn. Cannot be thankful enough for this experience!
Perched up on a hill, you walk inside to the studio and you just know it's going to be amazing! There were so many bodies inside the space, and we moved in unison to our breath to an amazing chakra practice. Listening to the sounds of the real Mexico, with roosters, dogs, and people gently speaking, just added and topped the experience.

I have been taking yoga classes at Davanna Yoga for the past 1 1/2 years as well as a Teacher Training course. I absolutely love going to this shala. The location is amazing right down town overlooking the beautiful Banderas Bay. I look forward to going to the calming space Anna, the owner has created. As an instructor she incorporates all facets of yoga the mind and the body. She is the most knowledgeable yoga instructor I have ever had the privilege to study with.

6 months ago I was asked by my partner to attend a class at Davannayoga. The class was lead by Anna who with enthusiasm and huge spiritual energy immediately connected me to becoming aware of the power of connecting body, mind and spiruality. I felt great!! I now attend three times a week finding each time my energy increased, my body without pain and my athitude focused on living the positive. Thank you.

Surpassed every expectation I had. Anna Laurita is a powerhouse of energy, knowledge, and experience. I will be enrolling in her 500-hour yoga teacher training whenever she rolls out the curriculum!

Davannayoga provides a comprehensive and fun teacher training program, I highly recommend Anna's program to anyone interested in becoming a yoga teacher. I felt prepared to teach the minute I walked out the door.

Davannayoga was such a great and loving experience, from Anna, her family, the other teachers and of course the unforgettable friends you will make on the course. Anna's Shala is very welcoming and has so much culture and energy. I learned a lot about my personal practice, alignment, adjustments, and safety which were my key objectives of a yoga teacher training. Anna gives a good foundation for new teachers and you get the opportunity to share your thoughts, demonstrations and practice your own classes. Davannayoga is very traditional and Anna has great respect for the KYM (Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram) lineage which is a solid foundation to start a yoga teacher journey. And her bliss balls are amazing!

A really solid base on which to begin a yoga teaching journey. I enjoyed the more traditional approach that Davannayoga offer, and I felt ready to jump straight into teaching on graduation. Because of the intense nature of the course, I also formed close bonds with fellow students, which helps immensely with future endeavors!

Anna Laurita is a great teacher. Not only she is experienced and very knowledgeable, but she is also compassionate and really interested in every one of her students. She made the whole process so enjoyable that I never want to stop studying with her! Before I began the teacher´s training I had my doubts about wanting to be a teacher but she inspired me so much that I am certain that I want to be a yoga teacher, hopefully, some day as good as she is. I recommend her training to anyone who wants to be a teacher and also to students who want to have a deeper understanding of every aspect of yoga from anatomy to history, philosophy, Thai massage, meditation, and proper alignment of every asana.

I just want to say that I really enjoyed everything. You are always so positive that you really inspire us. For sure you inspired me. I think your way of teaching is just wonderful. and thank you so much for everything you have taught me. Namaste!
I feel like I have been given so many great tools from Anna that will absolutely help me as a student and a teacher in yoga and art. I am so grateful to have had you as my teacher and to have experienced this in Puerto Vallarta, of all places!!! This amazing experience is hard to let go of, but will always be fondly with me.

If you're thinking of doing it, stop thinking and do it! The training I received at Davannayoga has enhanced my journey in so many ways. Anna brings everything to her training, I learned what I had intended to and about 1000 times more. I felt well prepared after the training.

Thorough, knowledgeable, passionate training, and guidance. I would train with guru Anna again.
