Do you feel the need to get away from your daily routine and focus on reconnecting with the yoga practice? Or perhaps you’ve always dreamed of taking your passion further and want to become a yoga teacher.

One of the popular destinations for yoga teacher training is Mexico. Few destinations are as complex, colorful, and vibrant as this lovely country. Featuring white beaches, plenty of resorts, incredible mountains, delicious foods, and charming festivals, Mexico seems to have it all.

But where should you go if you want to practice yoga, find peace, and enjoy some of the best sites in Mexico?

Tulum, located on the Rivera Maya, is a dream destination when it comes to attending a yoga teacher training course. The Zen atmosphere, famous Mayan ruins, and the healthy lifestyle culture will make you fall in love with this part of the country in no time.

In the same state, Playa del Carmen is a popular travel destination. And while it can get overcrowded during the peak season, there are still quite a few hidden places to explore. You can practice yoga on the beach and connect with nature. But if you fancy a bustling nightlife, you’ll also find it here.

The blue waters and sandy beaches that define Mazunte are great for a yoga break. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, you can do that here – and why not, mix it up with your yoga practice. Admire the sunsets, check out the wildlife, and have the time of your life.

You can’t visit Mexico and not spend some time in Mexico City. Bustling and full of landmarks to explore, it is also a great destination for a yoga teacher training course. You get to enjoy the urban vibes while focusing on your practice.

With so many great choices, it could be hard to choose just one yoga teacher training course.

That’s why, in this article, we are sharing five great yoga teacher training courses in Mexico.

Note: BookYogaTeacherTraining offers a flexible cancellation policy. Should you not be able to travel as scheduled, we’d be happy to help you alter your booking with the same organizer or with a different organizer.
