I highly recommend Yandara to anyone in my life who is looking for a YTT. The lessons, relationships, and teachings I experienced impacted me profoundly. The sunshine, nourishing food, and music added so much joy and relaxation. I will carry these teachings with me for life. I cannot say thank you enough. Full Review

I chose this program partly because of reviews I had read on this very website, and am so grateful to the Yandara Alum who pointed me in the direction of this experience which was nothing short of phenomenal, top to bottom. At Yandara I was nurtured, supported, affirmed, encouraged, uplifted, healed, mentored, and given the confidence and skills necessary to become an authentic yoga teacher, not just by doing the motions but by radiating my unique gifts. The friendships formed here will be for life. Never in my life have I felt so uplifted and free to be completely myself. The campus is in a gorgeous quiet beachside dessert with panoramic mountain and ocean views. The lull of waves were the last thing I heard before falling asleep and first thing I heard upon waking each morning. The food is delicious and the chefs are so talented, producing 3 unique and richly diverse meals a day. At Yandara you become so attuned to nature, you will feel a noticeable difference in your nervous system and overall state of being. Yandara is the beginning of a new path ahead for me, and if you choose, it will be for you too!! Full Review
