Marianne Wells Yoga School - The Really Real Yoga® Experience

It is difficult to put into words just how much of an impact my yoga teacher training experience with Marianne Wells Yoga School has had on my life. I went in expecting to learn some teaching techniques, best practices for business as well as intensify my knowledge of the philosophy of yoga, and have emerged with this, and so much more. Marianne masterfully weaves her wealth of knowledge and experience into every aspect of the program. Marianne and her team are warm, open and inviting, which created a safe space for me to explore my personal teaching style. Every aspect of the experience was authentic, honest and extremely natural. I would highly recommend Marianne Wells Yoga School to every person who practices yoga, even if they have no aspirations to teach. Marianne opened my eyes to a world I never knew existed, and has given me the inner power and confidence to move into my truest self. I will forever be grateful for the experience with Marianne and her team.

I am so grateful that I came across Marianne Wells Yoga School, and chose to do her training. It  was one of the best experiences of my life. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't think of it. Everything - the location, information that we learned, the people, and the energy was all so amazing. I truly loved her style - Really Real Yoga®. I plan to share the teachings of Really Real Yoga with my students. The training pushed me outside of my comfort zone, allowed me to become a new person, and understand myself and others better. I truly believe that I was meant to join Marianne Wells yoga teacher training, as I could not see myself anywhere else. I always highly recommend her training to all of my fellow yogi friends. I cannot thank you enough Marianne! 

Bridget G - BC Canada

Marianne Wells Yoga School is a deep-immersion into all components of yoga. The daily lesson plans are divided into manageable and thorough subject matters that built on each other throughout the training. Marianne and her staff are professional and academic and created a welcoming community open to all. I would highly recommend the training for someone who is looking to advance their personal practice or interested in learning how to teach.

Julie H - California

Marianne Wells Yoga School was hands-down the best option for completing the training, as a working professional who can't give-up 6-months of weekends or take off for a whole month. The training itself was extremely comprehensive, well structured, and helped me understand what the true heart of yoga is. Highly recommended.

Sumner G - Georgia

My experience at Marianne Wells Yoga School far surpassed my every expectation! The rigor and detail of the anatomy and posture study, the inspiring exploration of the yoga sutras, chakras, and style techniques, as well as the helpful information and application of aryuveda and healthy living all worked together to create a transformative experience for me as a teacher and as a soul. The teaching team all shared their love and expertise to help each person grow from where they started. I could not be more thankful for this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone!

I have dedicated my adult life to the study of yoga over the years with Iyengar, Desikachar, Gurmukh and Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. I am a 500 E-RYT instructor and founder of Marianne Wells Yoga School - an RYS200 & RYS300 accredited school through Yoga Alliance. With over 21,000 hours of teaching, I am honored to have students now teaching yoga in over 60 countries around the world. My teaching draws on the traditions of Bhakti, Tantra, Hatha and Vinyasa to bring ancient universal wisdom of yoga to modern seekers. Learn how to experience and promote a peaceful connection between the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Discover not the roles we play, but who we truly are fulfilling our purpose in this lifetime. My multidimensional yoga teacher trainings will inspire you to live from the heart, to find peaceful inner strength, and to see the unity within our diversity – that we are all One - in sharing yoga's gifts to be the best yoga teacher possible.


I had a wonderful time with Marianne Wells YTT Jan 2020. I learned a lot and met new fantastic like minded people from all, over the world. The place was stunning, the food delicious, the accommodation cozy and the Shala just lovely. I am very happy to have chosen this particular training with Marianne.

This 200-hour yoga teacher training with Marianne Wells was exactly what I was looking for and came at exactly the right time for me. The instructors were passionate, engaged, and inspiring. I've been physically practicing yoga for 16 years and learned so much about the history and philosophy of yoga. I'm only just scratching the surface of this ancient way of life and so grateful to have studied under the excellent guidance of Marianne, Ron, and Ashley. My expectations were far surpassed and I recommend this training to anyone seeking to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga.

It was amazing! Thank you Marianne & Ron.
By Jennifer K for Marianne Wells Yoga School 200hr Yoga Teacher Training - January 2020 on 28 Jan, 2020
This was an excellent program lead by very knowledgeable people in a beautiful atmosphere. It isn't a retreat, it is very hard and takes lots of concentration to absorb the amount of information that you will obtain. 5 am till 9 pm everyday. People should be prepared for sure! I loved it!
