17 Day – Baja, Mexico Yoga Instructor Training

Welcome to Yandara’s 17-Day Yoga Teacher Training, nestled within the picturesque landscapes of Baja California, Mexico! Our program holds the esteemed 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certification, offering a transformative educational journey amid the breathtaking beauty of nature. With the boundless Pacific Ocean stretching on one side and majestic mountains embracing us on the other, we gather for more than just Yoga and Meditation; we create soulful connections, enjoy live kirtan music, savor delicious vegetarian meals, and immerse ourselves in the profound wisdom of yogic philosophy.

At Yandara, we believe in teaching yoga from the depths of the heart. We emphasize the importance of precision alignment as the foundation for any style you aspire to teach. Our mission is to empower you with the necessary skills to craft safe, effective yoga classes while honoring your unique gifts and passions. Throughout our Mexico teacher training program, you’ll experience a rich tapestry of yoga styles, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and more. Beyond the physical practice, you’ll also delve into the transformative power of meditation.

With open arms, our programs welcome individuals of all ages and skill levels, nurturing each student’s journey to become the best yoga teacher they can be. Yandara stands as a beacon of excellence within the yoga community, with over 5000 graduates since 2004 and a reputation as one of Yoga Alliance’s highest-rated schools.

The key distinction between the 17-Day and the 23-Day programs lies in their pace. Our 23-day training offers slightly longer breaks throughout the day and a full day off every week. On the other hand, the 17-day course offers slightly shorter breaks and a partial day off. Both courses primarily emphasize alignment-based Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, ensuring a comprehensive understanding and practice. Regardless of the duration, both programs lead to a 200-hour certification, equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed to embark on their journey as certified yoga instructors.

Join us at Yandara, where the beauty of yoga meets the magic of Mexico, and let your soul soar.

What makes Yandara special is the ability to inspire you to tap into your unique potential, guiding you along your own personal journey. We believe that being a yoga teacher is far more than cueing movements and breath; it’s about inspiring students to be present, and teaching them how to live with purpose, so that they may ultimately reconnect with the true Self.
