We provide delicious and healthy cuisine prepared for you daily. Your gourmet meal plan, and seasonal onsite kitchen, are a perfect complement to your yoga practice. 

Your spirit will be lifted and infused by the music and song enjoyed during evening satsangs, hosted by our fabulous in-house Kirtan Band: JAYA.


Yandara Yoga School home base is an almost 4-acre nature preserve type property located on the Pacific ocean of Mexico’s Southern Baja Peninsula. Only 15 minutes south of the magical village of Todos Santos and 40 minutes north of Cabo San Lucas.

The perfect setting for a world class yoga teacher training – stroll the miles of peaceful beachfront, or simply relax and meditate to the ever-present rhythm of the waves. Two miles up the beach is one of the premiere surfing beaches in North America. Yandara is in a rural, very safe and crime free location. Please visit our Travel page for more information.
