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.

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


This was a wonderful trip! Perfect mix of yoga and adventures. Love being able to go on these trips to see new places and make new friends. Every trip I can go on with DDY and Shelley, I will!
Such an incredible magical trip. The house/retreat center could have used some renovations, but I had such a beautiful time with fellow yogis and just to relax and let go. :)
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.
