The Amansala Escape

Amansala rests on the beautiful white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters of Tulum’s Mayan ruins and cenotes. The world-renowned eco-chic boutique retreat center has been featured in Yoga Journal, New York Times, Bazaar, and rated top three great yoga retreats around the world.

During this retreat, you will reside in a beachfront Riviera Mayan cabana with garden and sea views. You will practice in three private open-air yoga shalas and delve into a delightful detox menu with fresh organic Mexican fare.



Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students will receive Yin yoga certificate affiliated with Durga Excursions. Registration with Durga Excursions meets identified standard set by the organization.


This training consists of a 50-hour Yoga Alliance continuing education course and Yin yoga teacher certification. Emphasizing Buddhist practices of equanimity and loving-kindness, you will learn to use your authentic voice as an emerging Yin yoga teacher and guide unique sequencing in the sacred art of restoration.

Yin yoga is a practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues and approach equanimity in the subtle and emotional body. Practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness, Yin yoga empowers practitioners to coax prana into particular healing and rejuvenative pathways.

Teaching Yin yoga is a divine practice for deep healing and the mounting need to offer such practices grows more vividly each day. You will spend a divine week on the beach learning to teach Yin yoga, alongside daily Yang (Vinyasa and Iyengar) and pranayama practices, meditation, learning the art of adjustments, the sensual science of sequencing, and more.

Noble Silence and the daily ritual

Each day will begin with a Noble Silence practice where you will integrate Vipassana style meditation, Yang Vinyasa, Iyengar, and pranayama to awaken and enrich inner life. You will remain in silence through breakfast, after which you will break the silence with learning modules crafted to deepen your own relationship to yoga and chakra theory, asana and alignment, Buddhist and 8 limb yoga philosophy, meridians, sequencing and adjustments, and more.

After lunch, you will dive into each of the 5 elements and embody the practice through guided Yin sequencing of each element. Cooking classes, yoga Nidra, restorative practices, and teaching practicums will be segmented throughout the evenings. This Yin intensive training is a potent addition to integrate components of Yin and Restorative yoga into your own daily practice and into the yoga studios. Durga Excursions encourages seasoned yoga facilitators as well as emerging and brand new students who wish to deepen their own practice or begin teaching and sharing the essential practice of Yin yoga with others.
