You will be staying in your own private jungle cabin, placed in the gorgeous natural setting of the ashram. The cabins are a comfortable size, with a beautiful locally crafted bed, a comfortable mattress, and stunning river views. Comfort, yet close to nature. The ashram is a quiet retreat away from the noise of towns and cars. They have 12 acres of stunning waterfall (the largest in the area with 3 levels) and river land.

They have their own budding vegetable garden and fruit forest, a beautiful log fire circle, many secluded, private shady areas with trees, meditation, practice and relaxation areas by the river. Drinking water comes from a fresh water spring straight out of the rocks on the land. The yoga platform is surrounded by lush greenery and exotic animals.


The program is designed for you to become a HATHA YOGA teacher, although the principles learned here can be applied to any style of Yoga. This will enable you to teach Hatha yoga classes, but also teach style independent private, one on one alignment classes, as well as alignment workshops for everyone!

With thorough guidance and daily preparation, you will teach every day and will, therefore, leave there an experienced teacher, ready and confident to teach! At the XianYoga yoga teacher training course, you will not learn a pre-written script to get students through a class of general movement.

You will learn to teach from your own extensive understanding, experience, practice, and by intrinsically understanding yoga. You will learn to apply all principles yourself, and from that base, you will learn to teach from knowledge and experience, rather than from notes.

At the Xian YTT you will not receive ready-made sequences or templates for how to teach. But you will learn how to make them. You will receive constant personal feedback from Xian and your fellow students. You will learn through lectures and demonstrations, but most of all through practice and repetition, you will learn through listening to yourself and others.

All sharing will turn into teaching, as you learn every day. You will teach classes to other students, who will deliberately do things ‘wrong’ so that you can learn how to adjust, tailor your classes to different levels, and give variations.

You will practice to give talks on various yogic subjects and teach many asana, pranayama, and meditation classes. It’s going to be a lot of work and “putting yourself out there”, but it’s going to be a lot of fun too. The most important thing to know is that nobody can make you into a teacher. Only you can do it. So, the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it!

It not about becoming somebody else, but about becoming you and finding your voice, becoming your voice, and then teaching, and sharing what you love.

What you will learn during this teacher training:

  • By giving you the tools, experience, and practice, you will understand the sequencing of asanas for a class. You will be able to put together your own sequences for different lengths, variations to difficult postures or levels and themes, as well as studio yoga.
  • You will be able to teach up to 15-hours of workshop on XianYoga alignment, which you will learn in the first ten days of the intensive immersion training (principles behind standing, sitting, walking, forward bend, side bend, chest openers, turns and combinations).
  • You will be able to teach bandhas, mudras, pranayamas, and meditation.
  • You will be able to teach the yoga principles workshop on philosophy and history.
  • You will experience on your own body what it feels like when your body feels absolutely fabulous, when your body is open, and when your energy channels are open.
  • You will have many hours of personal or individual attention.
  • You will have taught many, many, many classes.
  • You will learn a revolutionary new body alignment method.
  • You will learn how to be a good teacher, from projecting your voice, to holding space, to when to speak and when not to speak, how to teach multiple levels of students in one class, how to weave spiritual themes into your classes, and how to get vast amounts of information into one class without overloading your students.
  • You will learn how to relieve your students' discomfort in sitting postures and many other challenging postures.
  • You will learn to transform your students' yoga practices forever, no matter what their experience level or style is.
  • You will learn what it looks and feels like when your students' bodies and energies are open. This is where the magic of adjustments and variations comes from.
  • You will then learn the magic of adjusting your students, to ensure absolutely no pain, crunching, or discomfort.
  • You will understand how the body works, so that you can apply those principles to any asana (posture) and even asanas not discussed during class.
  • You will understand the art of developing and giving teaching for different kinds of students.
  • You will understand the principles behind the perfect alignment, movement, and stretching.

Wat er te doen is

There are beautiful walks in the surrounding areas that can be enjoyed whenever you have time within the weekly schedule. As the Ashram is very deliberately set in a secluded location and the program is very busy, you will have time to visit San Rafael Del Sur or the beach on Saturdays, the Ashram day off.

Xian is also a professionally trained body piercer (by the internationally renowned Fakir School of Body Piercing In San Francisco, USA). She specializes in ritual piercing and breath control.

On request, horse rides might also be arranged for Saturdays.

Cars will usually not come up to the Ashram as they don’t like driving on dirt roads.
