There are limited beds at the ashram, so book early to secure your spot (and get the best rate). The rooms are private singles and doubles as well as four-bed bamboo dorms. There are hammocks and communal areas available to all.

Please note that we are located in a tropical traditional Mayan village in the Third World, which also means that occasional inconveniences cannot be completely avoided, but it is generally as safe here as back home, we've been here for five years already. We are also blessed to have not many mosquitos at all and there are no dangerous diseases, insects or other animals around.

Kaivalya Yoga School Guatemala Yoga Teacher Training Program

This training is for those who would like to teach yoga from spiritual experience, going into their own depths, becoming confident, fearless, inspiring in the process. Those who feel an urgent desire to explore the truth of existence by studying and practicing a wide range of knowledge & techniques from ancient wisdom traditions passed down to us through the ages by highly evolved beings for the benefit of all.

Many other yoga teacher training courses offer quicker programs (over three or even two weeks) with less actual contact hours in the classroom, requiring students to complete many hours by themselves to reach the hours required for certification. We encourage you to count the contact hours offered in any YTT.

This course exceeds 200 contact hours, ensuring that you will be adequately prepared to guide future students confidently and successfully. Each course includes a special module covering a particular topic more deeply: Sept: Tantra, Nov: Bhakti Yoga, Jan: Permaculture

Arjuna Dharma Das
Arjuna has been studying and practicing eastern spiritual traditions in India, Thailand, and Europe for over 15 years. He started his path and deep soul journey in his early twenties when he discovered Theravada Buddhism and Vipassana meditation along with Sivananda yoga. Apart from practicing Hatha yoga and meditation, he is a fiery bhakta, immersed in devotional songs and chants most of the time. He aspires to bring awareness and love into every breath. From the heart, he would like to offer his deepest gratitude to all his beloved teachers across the world.
Arpita Devi
Since her childhood, Arpita lived in the reality of complete wonderment of the universe and life itself. In her late teenage years, she started a formal practice of yoga as a student in the Satyananda tradition, which inspired her with its traditional approach to the ancient science and wisdom of yoga. Through Jnana yoga (union through wisdom) and Bhakti yoga (union through devotion), she finds truth in all and aspires to empathically share it with those who know how to listen.
