Accommodation

At our Baja, Mexico location we offer a few different choices for accommodation.

Deluxe Tents

The majority of yogis that attend our Teacher Training choose to stay in our deluxe tents. These are big tents that most people are able to stand up in. Each tent has a normal twin size bed and mattress, a small set of drawers and a lamp. Bed linens are provided, but we do not provide a bath towel. Comfortable and yet still close to nature. We like to call it comfort camping. For couples we can offer a larger tent with a larger bed. We have 7 bathrooms and 8 showers on our campus.

Luxury Canvas Cabins

These are beautiful cotton canvas safari tents with a plush full-size bed and mattress and down comforter. These tents will make your stay truly memorable. Linen bedding and towels are included. For couples we can offer a larger tent with a queen-size bed. These are available in a limited number. Check the booking registration page to see if they are available for your course.

Our concrete glamping cabanas are pure luxury! With comfy full size bed, down comforter, towels and plenty of space to store your clothes, these cabins are your perfect home away from home – nestled into the desert, yet sheltered from the elements.

Glamping Cabanas with Private Baths

For further comfort, our new cabanas have private bathrooms! With cushy full/queen size bed, down comforter, towels and plenty of space to store your clothes, these cabanas are simply divine – nestled into the desert, yet sheltered from the elements.
