    Absolutely a transformative, educational, and life-changing experience! I would hope all schools are held to the same standards found at Yandara. Exceptional instruction and an opportunity to truly live the Yogic lifestyle.

    Yandara provided me with a once in a lifetime experience. I learned so much more than I could have ever imagined and felt so safe and comfortable there. It is an intense experience but so worth it--and the people you meet stay with you forever. Yandara changed almost everything I had thought or had known about Yoga in the most positive ways. I felt like it was more than just a training--it was therapeutic in so many ways and teaches you how to love yourself and others more deeply.

    Yandara is a school of yoga which is very well balanced between the study of yoga asana, practical philosophy, and positive life training. it is holistic. learning and practicing Yoga through self expression passion devotion and creating the beautiful space for us as training yoga teachers to find our own rhythm and unique qualities from the inside out. the atmosphere was stunning. the teachers feel like life long friends. the training has prepared me to accept that there much more to yoga then just physical asana and I hope to keep walking the path to learn more

    The depth of knowledge and experience of the Yandara teaching faculty (Craig Perkins and Allison Eaton) particularly impressed me. Their teaching styles positively reinforce their students' self-esteem and capacity to teach yoga. Students are taught to emphasize the importance of safety in all yoga classes and to respect the limitations of each and every student's physical limitations and capabilities. The course also focuses on how to create a positive experience for students within a yoga class that is without ego and nourishing. I highly recommend this teaching course.
