    The school is located in a magical place in Baja. Close to the ocean and in the desert, it's easy to sink into nature, the training materials, and the connections that you make with your fellow yogis and the instructors. I think one of the strengths of this training is those connections: many aspects of the training allow you to drop into vulnerability and connect with the people around you in a loving way. These connections and that atmosphere of care and compassion make it a wonderful place to learn and to take the risks needed to grow as an individual and as a yoga teacher. I had so many impactful experiences at this training and overall loved my time there, but I would have liked the training to more fully address cultural appropriation, business practices for yoga in the world of online learning, and trauma-informed practices.

    This is a one of a kind training that works as much as an inside out cleanse as it does professional development. Little nuggets of the teachings were like seeds planted during the 17 day intensive but have surprisingly taken root even more deeply after the program ended. I can still hear Craig's voice "if it feels good, it is good." It was really, really good.

    Yandara Yoga Institute is not only a Yoga teaching school but also a well balanced school of science, philosophy and spirituality. At Yandara we learn to love each other as human being, we learn to be in harmony with ourselves, our body and our mind, we learn to follow our heart and be true to ourselves. Learning about these essentials aspects of life, we learn to be a genuine caring & loving yoga teacher to spread, love, gratitude, happiness, kindness & peace around us. Thank you Yandara! :)

    Yandara Institute offers a trully comprehensive, heart-to-heart yoga teacher programme. It's so much more than just teaching postures, alignment or philosophy. Yandara really offers a comprehensive experience of what it means to be a yogi, a teacher and a true version of oneself.

    My experience at Yandara, Baja Sur was beyond my expectations. Beyond amazing! The group of souls I trained with are now family. Our lives are forever linked by the love and growth we shared during those 23 days. The education was way more valuable than simply learning asanas and how to build an excellent yoga class. We received a spiritual, emotional, and interconnected education that fully embraced the 8 limbs of yoga. And we all felt confident in our ability as a teacher to build those fantastic classes without losing sight of the full range of the yoga experience. Beautiful campus! Gorgeous oceans and mountains surround. I miss the food daily - made even tastier because of the loving hands that prepared each meal. And the teachers all offered their own unique flavor to the experience and sent us home full of their warmth and good energy!
