Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico

Yandara is one of Yoga Alliance’s most successful yoga teacher training schools with over 5000 graduates since 2004 and one of the highest-rated schools at Yoga Alliance. They offer over twenty trainings throughout the year in several different areas of focused study. What makes Yandara special is the ability to inspire you to tap into your unique potential, guiding you along your own personal journey. They believe that being a yoga teacher is far more than cueing movements and breathing; it’s about inspiring your students to be present, and teaching them how to live with purpose, so that they may ultimately reconnect with the true self.

Many yogis that attend Yandara's YTT choose to stay in furnished tents. These are big tents, each with a twin-size bed, a small set of drawers, and a lamp. Bed linens are provided, but not towels. Comfortable and still close to nature. Yandara likes to call it comfort camping. There are 7 bathrooms and 7 showers on the campus.

A taste of how you'll spend a day


Your day starts with sunrise over the mountains and a yoga class to awaken your senses and ready you for the day. After a refreshing shared community breakfast, you then move into your technical training where you break down poses together in the natural beauty of one of their 3 open-air studios. Next, you pause for a delicious lunch focused on health and nutrition for both mind and body, followed by an hour break allowing for time to relax on the beach and connect with your fellow students.

Afternoon – after lunch

Yandara's focus turns to you as a teacher. They are here to assist absolute beginners in becoming educated and inspiring yoga teachers, as well as to assist seasoned teachers in the deepening and refining of their yoga teaching skills. This part of your day will allow you to become more comfortable in front of a class and take on the role of a confident yoga teacher. You will become not only more knowledgeable in yoga with this training but also more knowledgeable of yourself as they encourage you to carry what you have learned onward to your own students. This supportive and encouraging environment is built to elevate each and every one of the students to their full potential as yoga teachers.


Every night, Yandara offers community activities that are unique and crafted to keep you entertained, engaged, and enlightened. Enjoy music and dance with the local house band, Jaya, comprised of 4 fellow yogis. Join Yandara in the magical experience of chanting, meditating, or sitting back with your fellow students and instructors for an evening of educational films on ground-breaking yoga approaches followed by a group discussion. These evenings are built to encourage our community of students and teachers to connect, have fun, and head to bed with a full heart and soul.
