Where is Yandara…

Yandara Yoga School home base is an almost 4-acre nature preserve type property located on the Pacific ocean of Mexico's Southern Baja Peninsula. Only 15 minutes south of the magical village of Todos Santos and 40 minutes north of Cabo San Lucas.

The perfect setting for a world class yoga teacher training - 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 premiere surfing beaches in North America. Yandara is in a rural, very safe and crime free location. Please visit our Travel page for more information.
