About this trip

Left Coast is proud to present our 6th Annual, National Yoga Alliance Certified, 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

Yoga Teacher Training is a life-changing opportunity to explore every facet of the Yoga Practice.

Some of our folks take YTT because they wish to teach. Some do it to deepen and understand their own practice.

Our graduated teachers have gone on to teach at local studios, schools, places of work, detention centers, and just about everywhere in between.

We feel that YTT is the antidote to the modern world. Where society pulls us apart, it brings us together. Where online culture lets us tread lightly, YTT draws us in deep. This is not an easy journey, but it is a worthwhile one. 

There will be tears and breakthroughs.

We curate each new class based on an oral and written application process.

Please send us an email and we will set up an opportunity for an interview.

We recommend a minimum of one year of yoga practice before embarking on this journey,

Yoga Teacher Training is led by the Left Coast Senior Instructor Family!

Rachel R - Sequencing / History of Yoga

Whitney W - Alignment / Anatomy

Adam K -  Pranayama, Bhakti, Bandhas

Zach - Sanskrit

Hillary / Lyz - Ashtanga + Rocket Yoga

Some testimonials from previous Graduating Classes: 

“This training has deepened my own yoga practice, opened my eyes to yoga anatomy, philosophy, pranayama & sequencing. If you are thinking of embarking on a yoga journey there is no better place to start than with the Left Coast Yoga Teacher Training. Thank you to all the teachers involved in the program, and to the other 2021 graduates.” (Graduate 2021)

“I am truly sad that the training has ended. I learned so much about yoga and about myself, while making some wonderful new friends. I would highly recommend Left Coast's teacher training to anyone who is interested in deepening their practice. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.” (Graduate 2021)

“Overall I really enjoyed this journey. So blessed to be part of this community of trainers/trainees and YTT. What a journey! The YTT was very well planned and executed.”

(Graduate 2021)

I loved being a part of this teacher training! I joined the group in order to deepen my yoga practice, learn more about anatomy and alignment, and to build community, and all three of those goals were met. The teachers were knowledgable, the learning was a great mix of didactic and experiential, and the people in my group are wonderful. I recommend this training to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of yoga and to build teaching skills. (Graduate 2022)

I feel very welcome at left coast and it has a special place in my heart! I loved that the retreat was included and that you did a little graduation ceremony! Great touches! And the mentor sessions were extremely helpful in preparing for the final. I also love that you continue to support student learning after the program. I felt really bonded with my group in the end and was given the space to grow and learn in a loving, authentic environment. I had many powerful moments throughout. I hope to take another training with you all someday! (Graduate 2022)

A wonderful, relaxing experience filled with yoga, yummy food and community.

I can’t say enough good things about this retreat. My bff and I booked this on a whim never having gone to left coast yoga. Rachel and Mario are amazing people and instructors. Mar de jade is amazing. You can tell Rachel has built a relationship with the people and resort over the years and it shows. Everything was seamless and intimate. The yoga was just the right level for a relaxing retreat. I enjoyed the variation, one more vigorous class in the morning and more restorative later in the day. The practice rooms were dreamy and right on the ocean. The vibe was very relaxed, come do the yoga If you want, or sit by the pool with a drink if you don’t. I knew nothing about mar de jade going into this, but it’s a very special place with amazing and inspiring people running it. I’m grateful for Rachel introducing us to this place. The staff really cared about everyone’s experience. The food was spectacular - I ate more mangoes in one week than in my entire life. The rooms are comfortable and I slept better than I have in months. Go on this retreat. You will not regret it.

Absolutely fabulous! Rachel was such a knowledgeable, welcoming & generous host with both her yoga experience & energy. What a great idea to escape the daily hustle & bustle of life, soak up yoga in the sun, lay poolside, enjoy great conversation with good people, & make new friends all at the same time. I love any space where "all are welcome" & this was an unexpected treat. Even though I came prepared with my own yoga mat, towel, & other recommendations on the list, Rachel also provided THe best yoga bolsters I've ever met, mats, towels, etc. Great company, networking & something I would seek out again! Thank you Rachel & new friends..

As always, I had a great time on this retreat! Lovely people, amazing food, and beautiful location!
By Rachel L for Left Coast Staff and Grads Mini-Retreat on 31 May, 2022
This was a magical and healing experience, place, and community. Mar de Jade is one of a kind and Rachel has everything taken care of and planned so participants can do as much or as little as they want. First time I can remember not needing a vacation from a vacation when I returned back to "real life" because I was so deeply nurtured and grounded from the retreat. I am already planning to come back as soon as I can.
