I loved the accommodations, the food, my teachers , the studio spaces, and the overall location. I went there to learn how to become a yoga teacher, and I took home so much more than just that :)
It gave you nature at your doorstep, it provided simplicity yet everything you needed to feel taken care of and safe.

"16 day 200 hour training Bai"
My experience at Yandara was absolutely amazing. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and sweet. They created such a supportive environment that I felt completely safe to express myself, ask questions, and try new things. We covered philosophy, alignment, practice teaching, meditation, kirtan, Satya and breath among a great deal of other things. I feel that the training is very complete and I’m grateful for my experience there.

"Eine Reise zu einem anderen Planeten!"
Das Konplettpaket war perfekt. Jede einzelne Stunde passt ins Bild, ein roter Faden zieht sich durch das gesamte Programm, inkl Abendgestaltung/Essen/Freizeit. Mehr kann ich mich nicht wünschen!
