      I wasn't able to attend this retreat due to illness. The team was very nice in all their communications, but wasn't willing to make any accommodation - travel insurance would not cover my situation but I didn't want to risk getting anyone else on the retreat sick. While I understand that there are costs associated with putting on a retreat, so it makes sense they wouldn't be able to offer a full refund, even a small credit towards a future teacher training would have been appreciated. The entire situation made me feel like Kootenay Yoga School cared more about money than spreading the joy of teaching yoga or practicing kindness.

      If I could give Kootenay Yoga School 10 stars I would. Everything was so beautifully curated - the staff, housing, food, transportation, communication, people - I couldn't have dreamt up a better team and environment. Our teacher Michelle was absolutely dynamite. Her curriculum was exactly what I was looking for in a YTT Program. Lisa, Kandice, the grounds staff, the kitchen staff...every single person who made this trip run like a well-oiled machine deserves the world and all the recognition. If you're thinking about taking a trip to Isla Mujeres, think no further. Just do it. It was a trip of a lifetime.

      A wonderful experience in Joshua Tree. The weather graced us with January rain storms, multiple rainbows, strong winds, and beautiful cool starry nights. The food was amazing, and plentiful. The group of ladies were wonderful, and our instructor, Marcia, was phenomenal. The accommodations were comfortable. I would have liked to have known more about the space itself prior to arrival, like the shared outhouse(with a real toilet <not port-o-potty>) the one shared indoor shower, and the sleeping arrangements (glamping trailers and a bunkhouse) Sitting on the floor of the shala for daily learning was painful for the first few days, I’d recommend bringing a small camping chair with you. And snacks if you get peckish. I brought protein powder with me and was glad to have it as the menu is mostly vegan and veggie dominant (and incredibly delicious) but not a lot of protein dense foods. Addy seriously needs to make a cookbook, the food was a huge highlight of the experience. Bring warmer clothes than you think if coming in a cooler month. Having a car would be helpful if you want to get out, you’re not walking distance to town (also a big perk the silence is incredible), and if you want to go to the park on your day off for a hike. Would recommend this experience to friends and others looking for a full experience in the desert, immersed in nature and good vibes. I learned a lot and am so happy to have attended. Thank you!

      An amazing experience! Met so many beautiful people. Learned a TON, both about yoga and myself! Our instructor Michelle is fantastic, she loves what she does and it shows. The rest of the Kootenay team is also superb they always go above and beyond for the students. Thank you Kootenay!

      Beautiful experience. The best part was the tight-knit community and Michele's spiritual yet modern yoga approach. I went over the December holiday and the Kootenay team did a wonderful job making Dec 25 festive, while still giving us the benefits of a peaceful, healing journey away from home. It was definitely a well-balanced training + holiday experience. (We got daily time off to explore and there were no hard & fast rules around tech usage or chores & cleaning, so it's a moderate approach to the yogic lifestyle. Wonderful for folks looking to learn and have a mini holiday. May not be suitable for advanced practitioners.) Many of the lovely people I met at the training were in their late 20s-40s+ and are adventurous travelers taking a break from or reimagining what life can look like away from the 9-5 grind. For those looking for a deeply spiritual, healing experience, I would not say this is the exact place for that. For those looking to understand yoga, deepen their yoga practice, feel confident teaching, and connect with other travelers, then this a good place for you. Just FYI participants who were able to *snag* a single room had a more comfortable living experience than those sharing rooms. Isla Mujeres is a lovely little island with a balance of quiet vistas and more touristy shops and restaurants. The yoga villa is a 5 mins walk from a really lovely, small beach and dock area - very grateful for access to an ocean swim every day! Food is delicious and bountiful, and it was a really wonderful 2-weeks to get into a routine of exercise, healthy eating, meditation, and self-care. I feel prepared with the fundamentals of yoga and yoga teaching, and inspired to seek out more training or self-learning to continue deepening my practice.

      I have completed the 200-hour yoga teacher training with Kootenay Yoga School at their beautiful location in Isla Mujeres Mexico (a small Island in the Caribbean Sea). Where to start? Sign up and be totally comfortable that u’ll have the best experience. The location is in a jungle vibe, modest, clean &amp; organized. The food is vegetarian, organic, super healthy prepared by a talented young lady - Addy the owner’s daughter, who works hard to make sure every dietary requirement is met. Lisa, the owner, is a professional woman who is very meticulous and follows up with every detail, making the experience worthy. The whole team, from Kandice, Silvia, to the kitchen staff are very helpful and kind. Stephania (Steff) our teacher made every lesson interesting and enjoyable, the fire and energy in her, the knowledge she shared in Anatomy, was outstanding as if a doctor is explaining. The course is intensive, however, well divided throughout the days. Steff is also flexible and no matter how tired one is, we would put the effort to be punctual in her classes and enjoy the information shared. I was lucky to be with amazing people from different countries and cultures, we clicked and had so much fun together. Yes, it’s hot and humid and u need mosquito repellent. It’s not that bad at all. The beach is 5’ walk from the school and it’s breathtaking. So is Punta Sur most easternmost point of Mexico and u get to see numerous iguanas in that region too. I felt so safe in the school and the whole island. 💜🧘🏻‍♀️
