Led by Certified Baptiste teacher Shelley Lowther and other DDY Senior Teachers, this program is appropriate for practitioners of every level.  This is a physically, mentally and emotionally challenging training that is a must for anyone wanting to share the practice of yoga, as well as those who simply wish to deepen their own understanding of the practice.

The DDY training is designed to prepare you to be a confident, effective yoga instructor. Each session covers a different unit of study and includes asana, lecture, group discussion, and small-group exercises.

The aim of this program is to create exceptional teachers, Not only will you leave our program prepared to teach, you will also be able to stand in front of a room of people and share openly and authentically.   You will gain invaluable insight into your own way of being. At DDY, we believe that the best yoga teachers are those who connect with their students, who speak authentically and from the heart, and who are comfortable in their own skin, regardless of who or what is around them. Through the practices and techniques of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, you will learn to identify the obstacles in your life and gain the tools to become your most powerful self, both in and out of the yoga studio.

Dancing Dogs Yoga is a kickass, feel good Baptiste Yoga community,


Absolute paradise! The food was outstanding. We had multiple opportunities for exploring and plenty of free time to enjoy the amenities like pool, waterfall, and hikes. I would go again right now if possible!

This trip was easily the best experience of my life. Between the supportive local community and the DDY tribe, growth was endless. This experience provided me with the tools to tap into myself and really learn how to serve others. It has forever changed my life as I embark on a new journey. I just recently became a teacher at a Baptiste studio because I was able to collect all of the tools provided and apply them to this new life. I am forever grateful for the DDY team, for Shelley, and for every student on the trip who was brave, open and vulnerable. The connection between everyone cannot even be put into words, just a strong feeling of community and support. Thank you x 10000 for this experience, I hold every moment close to my heart! If you are thinking of going, GO. You are ready now! Go be in it.
From the time I submitted my application for teacher training, I felt nothing less than support. Shelley and her entire team was nothing less than awesome- knowledgeable, engaging, professional, and took the time to be of service for/with us. I went into this training with a few certifications under my belt and came out a brand new person- the work in dropping what I knew to fully invest in becoming my true, most authentic self. Each workshop, each class, each conversation left me more confident to stand in front of a class; along with the solidified feeling I was right where I was meant to be. This was the greatest investment I have made for myself to this date and I am beyond thankful for the never ending support I receive from my fellow teacher training graduates and the teaching team. Give up what you must and BE A YES!
This is such an amazing opportunity for anyone really- wanna be a badass yoga teacher? YES. wanna improve your yoga practice? YES. wanna find out MORE about yourself? YES. When it comes to yoga, there's always so much to learn & so much room to grow. I absolutely loved every single minute, second I spent with my team during my teacher training- met great people from all over the place and most importantly, I learned so much about myself throughout the training. Overall, this was def a life change experience and I highly recommend DDY's DR teacher training! They have the best team ever and you will not regret it!
This trip was the reset and refresh my heart and soul needed. I was able to escape reality and technology by surrounding myself with the beautiful landscapes of Joshua Tree and the most amazing group of strong women. The highlight of the retreat was the vortex-labyrinth ceremony. The ceremony was focused on leaving behind the doubts and thoughts that are no longer serving you and to replace them with a new thoughts of empowerment and self-love.
