  • 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Mexico

    October 6-27, 2018

    This 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program is certified by Yoga Alliance as an RYS and will be focusing on the traditional Hatha Yoga methods and applying them to Vinyasa, Yin, and Flow style classes. As a trainee, you will learn everything you need to know to take your own practice deeper and to teach a safe and intelligent yoga class. The course covers yoga asanas, anatomy, pranayama, philosophy, mantra applications. This will help shape your life and teaching style!

    The best part is, you are able to immerse yourself in your education for 21 days full of instruction, adventures and community! This course offers both a residential program and a course only option in the beautiful village of Mismaloya, Jalisco, Mexico. Our residence for this 200 HR training will be a communal living space in a quiet secluded villa. It is an easy 10 minute walk down the hill to the beach, the store, the village! If you want to venture further, towns of Puerto Vallarta, Boca de Tomatlan and Yelapa are all accessible by public/private transportation.

    As a Travelling Yogi Retreats adventure you will also have the luxury of being well taken care of with breakfast and dinner included each day with a variety of both Mexican and American dishes served family style, a private pool and pool deck where our classes will be held in the mornings, a AC cooled space indoors for evening classes, karma work in the community, 2 full day excursions as a group and every Saturday off so that you can explore, nap, have a beach day or whatever your heart desires!

    Your Accommodations

    Villa Mercedes is located in the hills above Mismaloya, Mexico. It is a large private villa with an assortment of bedrooms and staffed with a cook & housekeeper. This villa features a gorgeous pool deck & terrace for your asana practices and open space indoors with AC for your theory portions of the training, so that everyone is comfortable.

    Gaby & Luz will prepare and serve family style meals for breakfast & dinner each day. They can accommodate vegan, vegetarian & gluten free. There are many restaurants and shops in the village below if you choose to find a meal in your downtime. The beach is just a 10 minute walk down a steep hill and a challenging little hike up, or you can find taxis for 50 pesos each way. The municipal bus is safe and runs every 15 minutes at the bottom of the hill and you can easily make your way to explore surrounding communities. This is a very safe and tourist friendly part of Mexico and my second home, so feel free to ask me advice on anything! The home is yours and includes use of the heated dipping pool, Air-conditioning in bedrooms, TV’s, WIFI and cleaning services daily, with laundry machines available for your use. A reminder that it is co-ed communal living, so sharing is caring……but it is huge so there is plenty of room to have alone time.
