Empower and Inspire Others

As a teacher graduate, you will learn the physical, energetic, and spiritual implications of yoga, as well as the importance of your way of being— how to live an authentic, essential life. 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.

Wasn't it magical? It would not have been the same without you.

This trip to Iceland was amazing. We were fortunate enough to see the northern lights on 3 different nights and then to top it off, even from the backyard of the places we where we were staying. The country is so beautiful - hiking and seeing the sites as we traveled together. The geothermal spas were incredible, the food was superb and the company was so much fun. We had a yoga practice daily then went to lunch and began excursions. I cannot say enough good things about this trip. We laughed, we played and we were there for each other. This is one journey to truly consider. Shelley does such a great job planning these events, she is resourceful, fun and creative.

This was my first retreat, and it was out of this world! The people, the yoga, the food, the chateau, and the adventure! Every last moment was perfection, and can’t wait for the next one!

I am so excited to see you in Mexico and Greece. My job (and life!) are better because people like YOU like to travel with us.

This was my second retreat with DDY retreats. A huge thank you to Shelley for a once in a lifetime adventure in France. It was an amazing time. It was obvious that everything was thoughtful and planned for an enjoyable trip. It was a week I will never forget. I got to meet new friends, eat amazing food and practice yoga in the French countryside. I seriously cannot wait until my next DDY retreat. Thank you again.
By Wendy C for Chateau de Bardouly: Vino and Vinyasa on 19 Oct, 2021
I can't wait to explore Tulum and Greece with you! Glad you are part of our travel family!!
