Accommodation

Yandara deluxe tents are spacious, comfortable, and secure, and include a twin bed, mattress, linens, reading lamps, and storage drawers. The tent is 10 feet by 10 feet wide and tall enough for most people to stand. If you remove the rain fly, you have the option of looking up at the stars. You can also choose to bring your own tent.

Bed linens are provided, but bath towel will not be provided. The tents are comfortable and yet still close to nature as Yandara Yoga Institute would like to call it luxury camping. For couples, a larger tent with a larger bed can be offered.

The facility is comfortable but rustic, emphasizing outdoor living including a large enclosed yoga pavilion, flush toilets, and hot water shower facilities as well as kitchen and dining area. Yandara Yoga Institute has six bathrooms and five showers on the campus.

The hot showers and bathrooms are centrally located for all students. Yandara also provides a laundry service once a week. If you prefer, there is a sink for hand washing on site and they supply laundry soap.

Program

Yin and Restorative yoga are gentle, regenerative practices where all the poses are done on the floor, supported by props to encourage deep relaxation, a natural opening of the joints and optimal energy flow through the body. This slow, healing practice is a journey into the heart and soul of your being.

It naturally cultivates inner listening, heightened awareness, compassion, and acceptance for who you are and where you are in each moment of life. Your focus is on both Yin and Restorative yoga. You will learn how to effectively teach these two distinct styles.

The daily morning asana practices will include a mix of Yin, Yang, and Yang-Yin styles. You will explore:

  • Yin yoga principles and practice
  • Yin poses
  • Restorative yoga principles and practice
  • Restorative poses
  • Wall yoga
  • Incorporating live music and sound healing in the Yin / Restorative yoga class
  • Yin and Restorative yoga sequencing
  • The Chinese meridians and sequencing for organ health
  • Exploring props
  • Variations and modifications
  • The science of stress and the relaxation response
  • Yin yoga anatomy
  • Energy body anatomy
  • Incorporating gentle pranayama in the Restorative practice
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Yin desserts (incorporating gentle energy assists, sound healing, musical instruments, aromatherapy, mantras, mudras, and more into your Yin and Restorative classes)

Sample itinerary

Morning

Your day starts as the sun rises with a yoga class to awaken your senses and ready you for the day. After a refreshing shared community breakfast, you then move into your technical training where you break down poses together in the natural beauty of one of Yandara’s three open-air studios.

Next, you pause for a delicious group lunch focused on health and nutrition for both mind and body, followed by an hour break allowing for time to relax on the beach and connect with your fellow students.

Afternoon

After lunch, Yandara’s focus turns to you as a teacher. This part of your day will allow you to become more comfortable in front of a class and take on the role of a confident yoga teacher. You will become not only more knowledgeable in yoga within this training but also more knowledgeable of yourself as they encourage you to carry what you have learned onward to your own students. This supportive and encouraging environment is built to elevate each and every one of the students to their full potential as a yoga teacher.

Evening

Every night, Yandara offers community activities that are unique and crafted to keep you entertained, engaged, and enlightened. Enjoy music and dance with Yandara’s local house Jaya Band comprised of four fellow yogis.

Join them in the magical experience of music-chanting meditation or sit back with your fellow students and instructors for an evening of watching educational films on ground-breaking yoga approaches followed by a group discussion.

These evenings are built to encourage the community of students and teachers to connect, have fun, and head to bed with a full heart and soul.

Retreat location

Yandara Yoga Institute headquarters is a beautiful oceanfront retreat (an almost four-acre nature preserve type property) nestled beside the Pacific Ocean of Mexico's southern Baja Peninsula. They are located 20 minutes south of the magical village of Todos Santos and 40 minutes north of Cabo San Lucas.

The natural setting of this yoga teacher training is as much a part of your experience as the yoga instruction itself. This secluded Baja, Mexico location offers stunning beachfront vistas featuring open-air studios to keep you in touch with your surroundings and all the beauty that nature has to share with you.

These comfortable outdoor settings take advantage of the warm temperatures that Mexico offers. Drawing from its natural beauty, you are encouraged to connect with your surroundings while you also connect with those you are on this journey with.

Yandara has desert vegetation. From the yoga pavilions and the beach, you have phenomenal views of the Pacific Ocean in one direction and mountains in the other. It is one of the best places to view spectacular sunsets every evening!

Yandara is in a rural, very safe, and crime free location. Stroll the miles of peaceful beachfront or simply relax and meditate to the ever-present rhythm of the waves. Two miles up the beach is one of the premier surfing beaches in North America.

The nearby attraction includes Todos Santos which is just a short 20-minute drive away, designated as a pueblo Mexico (magic town). This beautiful town features art galleries, historic buildings, and the very best in local restaurants. Nearby, you will also find the renowned surfer beach Los Cerritos and the world-famous sandy beaches of Cabo San Lucas.
