This was one of the most magical trips I have ever taken!
Wonderful and most perfect location for a 200hr yoga teacher certification program! I highly recommend Shelley + Dancing Dogs Yoga teacher training if you want to dive into how to powerfully teach yoga and also dive deep into becoming a better you. This training was even more powerful in a jungle/tree house village location to completely immerse in the program instead of a studio. It's well worth it to make the trip of a lifetime- especially when you get done with lots of learning and there's a buffet of food and fresh fruit juices waiting for you in the dining hall. It was magical and fitting to fall asleep to tree frogs singing, be disconnected from the internet, be more connected to the Earth's elements, and be a part of a close knit community of like minded strangers who quickly felt like family! We had lots of time to study yoga, be a community during dinner and for our excursions. Loved the zipline, pool, relaxing time on the hammocks, being a bike ride away from the beach, talking to other guests visiting the village, etc. Loved the food and the staff was very accommodating for our training. We were not only guests, but friends with the whole staff after day 1. Dancing Dogs picked a perfect location for this training. You will leave fully renewed for yourself and empowered to teach a badass yoga class to empower your community at home!
I had the most incredible time assisting with the 200hr teacher training at The Dominican Tree House Village. I had opportunities to grow my own abilities to lead and train new yoga teachers, as well as experience continued learning myself. The entire trip was a seamless experience and you can tell that Shelley and Christine put a lot of effort into making this trip fun and educational for trainees. I'm pretty sure I'll be coming back every year to assist with this training - that's how wonderful it was.
Extremely well organized and great value! By far the experience of a lifetime. Aside from the excellent facilitators, the employees and community were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The facilitators were an absolute dream team.
