Program

Learn to teach yoga from the heart. At Yandara, they emphasize precision alignment as a foundation for any style you choose to teach. They provide you with the necessary skills to create a safe and effective yoga class, all while nurturing your unique gifts and passions. One of the highlights of the Yandara program is the variety of yoga styles offered. You will experience Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and more. The program opens to all ages and skill levels. They will help you become the best yoga teacher you can be.

Yandara is one of Yoga Alliance’s most successful yoga teacher training schools with over 5000 graduates since 2004 and one of the highest-rated schools at Yoga Alliance. They offer over twenty trainings throughout the year in several different areas of focused study. What makes Yandara special is the ability to inspire you to tap into your unique potential, guiding you along your own personal journey. They believe that being a yoga teacher is far more than cueing movements and breath. It is about inspiring students to be present and teaching them how to live with purpose, so that they may ultimately reconnect with their true selves.

The Yandara teacher trainers have a wealth of knowledge and experience, both physical and energetic. The program is just as much of a teacher training, as it is an experience designed to enhance your life and help you become more authentic in your interactions, on and off the mat. If you are looking for training that offers you the time, space, and support to shape your own personal path, all while giving you the tools needed to confidently lead a yoga class, they are here for you.
