    These five principles are part of the Yandara teacher training system that will assist you to become the yoga teacher you want to be.

    1. Teaching confidence

    You will start to practice teaching on the second day and teach daily throughout the training. The institute has found that while it is of importance, gathering information about, or even experiencing yoga is not enough to learn how to impart the wisdom of the ancient practice. Through teaching and receiving immediate personal feedback, you will become more confident. Confidence allows you to relax and let your gifts come through.

    2. Inner alignment and hands-on assists

    At Yandara, proper alignment is valued as an important tool to a sustainable practice. That being said, what is the "proper alignment" for each individual? So many of the different yoga styles sometimes teach conflicting opinions, even about the very basic poses and how to practice them.

    Yandara has some options, they can become fanatical about their "style" being the only way or they can go on a quest for the latest in corrections and cues. A third option is offered as well as basic alignment and cuing principles; you will be taught how to cultivate and decipher the language of the body.

    You will learn to guide your students to be aware of what their sensations are telling them and how to move safely in the pose. Your inner ears will be trained to hear the quiet voice of the inner guru, the one who is present in your every breath and always ready to align you to you.

    To practice with the support of inner alignment allows you to stay in your safety, even while challenging yourself with more advanced asanas. On the same basis, you will learn how to guide your students to find their inner alignment; both with the use of cues and with hands-on assists.

    3. Cueing from your heart

    At Yandara, you will learn to access cueing words from the heart instead of from brain memory. Cueing from your heart happens naturally through presence. To set the constantly thinking mind aside and let your heart shine through in your classes, cues will be give a unique and personal touch.

    4. An open style and a set sequence

    At Yandara, you will learn an open style of yoga which allows you to choose what and how you want to teach in the future. You will get all the tools you need to create a fun and challenging yoga class. To help you build your confidence, as a beginner teacher, one part of the teacher training also consists of learning a set sequence. That sequence is a tool you can choose to use in your future classes for as long as you like.

    5. Compassion

    An important part of the Yandara training is understanding and developing a caring, compassionate nature; this is a big part of unveiling the radiant teacher inside.

They make you leave the training a newer, better you well equipped to start teaching yoga right away. The atmosphere within the group is like a family! I feel that I made friends for life.

      "When I arrived at Yandara, I immediately felt the deep peace and quiet. The beach is wonderful and everybody there is happy. The sunrise and sunsets are epic. I totally felt the coherence between the sacred teachings and the way Yandara runs their business. They live what they teach. I felt tons of love and compassion pouring from all the teacher’s hearts. And the cooks and staff are also very loving and kind. They served us with a lot of joy. The food was delicious. Loved the silence between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. "

      "I went to Yandara Yoga to get a Hatha Yoga certification and I left not only with that, of course, but with my heart full of love and new precious friends from all over the world! My vibes changed for real, and for good. I am super inspired by everything and everyone there. Thank you so much Yandara!"

      "I have learned how to incorporate my love for yoga and my beliefs into a lifestyle. I have met people that have expanded my hunger for knowledge. I have found a place where I am in my element. I have learned to relax more and I have learned more ways in which I want to be a better person. I laughed a lot. The meditation practice was wonderful because there were people like the Perkins's to inspire us. Also the environment we were in was so safe, everything was taken care of. So we could use our "internal eyes". The asana practice was wonderful. I deepened my practice and learned more about my body so I could teach my students. The Yandara experience was a beautiful, non-judgmental, comfortable environment to look deep into ourselves and get support from each other. It was amazing. the beauty and the changes will stay with me forever."

    • Review by Ami Gosalia from Arizona

      "My experience at Yandara has been an awakening for me. I have begun a lifelong journey and I want to spread to others the joy and love I have discovered. Satya (the practice of truthfulness) has allowed me to open myself up and although I have my work cut out for me, I am drawn to finding out who I truly am and what my purpose is in this universe. The chanting we do in Satsang invigorates my heart. The harmony we create is so unique to me. The staff at Yandara has been helpful and has open hearts and opened minds. The cooks make great food. The program is complete. My experience at Yandara has been incredible and I will take what I have learned with me into whatever my future holds."
