Marianne Wells Yoga School - The Really Real Yoga® Experience

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.


Gorgeous venue, fantastic food; adorable chanting iguanas; fun times at recess; amazing group of intelligent, warm, fun, supportive, beautiful, women; good friends made; amazing instructors; so much learned; so much improvement to self . Only problem was......Nope, none, nada! 5/5 Stars! Thank you to all my co-students, each and everyone of you taught me something special; and to Maureen, Ron, and Marianne, thank you for sharing all your knowledge. Dhanyavaadaha!

Absolutely amazing experience. I always know to expect quality from a Marianne Wells Yoga training. The combination of lovely people, in-depth learning from knowledgeable and compassionate teachers, and the gorgeous accommodations was exactly what I needed. I'm grateful to have experienced this retreat and am looking forward to the next one!

There is a good reason why I chose to return as a 'returning student' and be part of the MWYS experience. Nearly five years after my graduation and after teaching, I still believe this school gives you truly everything you need to be a great teacher. Not just in one area but in all - from anatomy and physiology, to theory, to practice, to philosophy and most of all, finding your own unique voice as a teacher. What I love the most are the games and exercises we play. There is so much learning, it is then up to each and everyone to make the best of it. I am truly grateful! Elina
By Elina S for MWYS 200hr Training - February 2020 - returning students only on 13 Mar, 2020
Amazing experience! I loved everything, our group, the location, every single yoga session and the theoretical parts. This is not only a high quality training but even an awesome possibility to learn more about yourself. The schedule is strict, but if you are interested in a really good and efficient yoga teacher training, offered by two experienced teachers, I can definitively recommend this school! After only two weeks I feel best prepared for the first lessons.
