They make you leave the training a newer, better you well equipped to start teaching yoga right away. The atmosphere within the group is like a family! I feel that I made friends for life.

    "When I arrived at Yandara, I immediately felt the deep peace and quiet. The beach is wonderful and everybody there is happy. The sunrise and sunsets are epic. I totally felt the coherence between the sacred teachings and the way Yandara runs their business. They live what they teach. I felt tons of love and compassion pouring from all the teacher’s hearts. And the cooks and staff are also very loving and kind. They served us with a lot of joy. The food was delicious. Loved the silence between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. "

    "I went to Yandara Yoga to get a Hatha Yoga certification and I left not only with that, of course, but with my heart full of love and new precious friends from all over the world! My vibes changed for real, and for good. I am super inspired by everything and everyone there. Thank you so much Yandara!"

    "I have learned how to incorporate my love for yoga and my beliefs into a lifestyle. I have met people that have expanded my hunger for knowledge. I have found a place where I am in my element. I have learned to relax more and I have learned more ways in which I want to be a better person. I laughed a lot. The meditation practice was wonderful because there were people like the Perkins's to inspire us. Also the environment we were in was so safe, everything was taken care of. So we could use our "internal eyes". The asana practice was wonderful. I deepened my practice and learned more about my body so I could teach my students. The Yandara experience was a beautiful, non-judgmental, comfortable environment to look deep into ourselves and get support from each other. It was amazing. the beauty and the changes will stay with me forever."

    "My experience at Yandara has been an awakening for me. I have begun a lifelong journey and I want to spread to others the joy and love I have discovered. Satya (the practice of truthfulness) has allowed me to open myself up and although I have my work cut out for me, I am drawn to finding out who I truly am and what my purpose is in this universe. The chanting we do in Satsang invigorates my heart. The harmony we create is so unique to me. The staff at Yandara has been helpful and has open hearts and opened minds. The cooks make great food. The program is complete. My experience at Yandara has been incredible and I will take what I have learned with me into whatever my future holds."

    "My experience has been very enlightening. I received much more than I bargained for and I have a lot more understanding of yoga as a whole. The satya and satsang elements were very happy treats and really helped drive and direct the spiritual side. I'm going home centered, inspired, and feeling more alive than ever. Thank you for your gifts, your words, heart, and true inspiration."
