My experience has been very enlightening. I received much more than I bargained for and I have a lot more understanding of yoga as a whole. The Satya and Satsang elements were very "happy treats" and really helped drive and direct the spiritual side.
I'm going home centered, inspired, and feeling more alive than ever. Thank you for your gifts, your words, heart and true inspiration.
Recently Yoga.com founder Victor Oppenheimer conducted a four week yoga teacher training course at Yandara Institute in Baja, Mexico. "Victor and I were inspired by the yoga, nature and especially by being with wonderful people with open hearts."

The growth I went through at Yandara Yoga School was amazing and I was given the tools to continue to grow. I don’t know what other trainings are like but I think this is a one of
a kind experience.
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..
The yoga program offered excellent teaching with high standards.Organization, plentiful good food and clean campsites added to the enjoyment of my stay. The staff at YYI are caring people taking the students’ interests in mind. I would recommend this program to other individuals pursuing yoga teacher training.

To the wonderful Yandara Community!
I am forever grateful for the illuminating experiences which have
affected my life in such a profound and positive way! All the events
leading to this incredible union at Yandara were worth every minute
and were incredible in and of themselves. However, that union and
the coming together of such breathtaking spirits in such a natural
and gorgeous landscape has been even more unbelievable! My appointment
from the Divine to come here was eye-opening and awe-inspiring! I
thank all the beings who I have come to love here, the land and Mother
Earth and the teachers who are so graceful in their yoga and life’s
training, the nature spirits who surround and protect us and especially
to God who has created all of these pure entities! I pray that Yandara
continues on its great path as I go to pursue my own journey that
Yandara has guided me towards so graciously!
I Love All!
May our white lights keep shining!
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.

Thank you to all at Yandara for giving me and my soul a home this
month. I couldn’t have had a more inspiring place to immerse
myself in Mother Nature with the wild surf and intense and good yoga
Thank you for the palapa, the hot showers and delicious meals and inspiring Satsangs.
Thank you from the deepest gratitude of my soul!
May Yandara continue in Peace
Here I sit, my last day here, Transformed in so many ways. I’ve
grown in many ways and learned from so many. A very intense, amazing
28 days. Here’s a Blessing on Yandara and a hope that you will
grow and Blossom just as the minds of your students have and will.
May you continue to Open minds and Open Hearts while opening bodies
This has been an amazing awakening and transformation; mysterious, challenging and complete. The ripples will issue out endlessly!
What a transformative, rich experience this has been for me. I
feel so renewed. This land, this community and all the teachings
have inspired me in a way I never realized was possible. I will carry
this experience with me forever.
All I ask of you is forever to remember me, as loving you.
Thank you so very much for the beautiful experience and help to grow in a caring, loving and spiritual way. Your inner light has illuminated my soul and I will do my best to bring that spark to others I may encounter in this life and the ones to follow. May
God keep you in His loving arms always and the Earth Mother cradle you in her womb.
All my love, Trish
What a great class to begin the day with! Sun salutations
should be a daily morning ritual for all yoga practitioners. The repetition of
routine was enjoyable, no big surprises too early. I enjoyed the variations to
the flow, and the freedom to go at our own pace and practice. It removed the
feeling of a flow "class" to the true personal experience that it should be. I
enjoyed having the opportunity to allow the students to teach/ lead.
The eye asanas will be used in my practice forever.
Walking meditation was a beautiful way to begin the day at
Yandara. I enjoyed waking up with the waves and reflecting on the day to come.
Difficult to get up, but after that first step, I loved it! Watching the sunrise, walking the beach- a glorious
time to start the day.
Kevin .. is an excellent teacher. I
thoroughly enjoyed every class. He maintained the perfect relationship between
teacher and student. I trusted his judgment due to his personal experience and
It was nice to have a teacher
who set a fine example of a yoga practitioner, unbelievable information, and
amazing in her breakdown of usually complicated subjects. Extremely nurturing
and supportive, bringing a great level of comfort for me in her class.
The meals were always delicious and filling. I felt totally
happy with the dietary plan. I think it works well in this environment, and for
doing yoga. The fruit available for snacking helps a lot. The lemons for adding
to water and tea are great, and made me feel more hydrated. I really
appreciate the clean drinking water and clean food. I never worried about
getting sick here. It's fantastic to have almost every ingredient fresh from
the market or garden and cooked with love and creativity.
Potential students should come for the yoga and stay for the
food! Peter and Brigit did a wonderful job at providing and excellent variety
of yummy prana charged cuisine.
The communication practice
was an invaluable tool for
my personal growth. I felt secure, vulnerable, loved all at once. Being
presence of like minded people going through similar situations was
comforting. This gave us all the opportunity to "put it all out there",
and know all would
be well after it was "said and done".
The communication practice was very effective at helping overcome initial
barriers/ apprehensions with the group. A forum for honest expression of
thoughts and feelings, really appreciated .
EVENING PROGRAMS/ MEDITATION
I truly enjoyed this section of the program. I love the
chanting the movements with songs, and the time to attempt to meditate. I can't
imagine a yoga practice that wouldn't be largely influenced by these practices.
I enjoyed the film nights, dance nights and Shane's drumming.
