      This program brought my headstand back :) My asana practice had fallen to the wayside in recent years and I signed up for this training with the hopes of bringing it back. It did! 10 fold. I got back from the program just over a week ago and I’m feeling more empowered in my yoga practice now than ever before. I am able to sequence a practice and work on mastering it with the tools given to me by the training: Marcia’s brilliant teaching of yoga concepts as well as her 2 hour asana class every morning, the asana workbook, peer teaching time, and asana lab for certain poses. The emphasis on asana is much appreciated but I was also thrilled to spend time almost every day reflecting as a group on the other 7 limbs of yoga. On the logistical end - Kootenay was a dream. The location of the school is exactly what I hoped for - 2 minutes to a swimming beach in one direction and 2 minutes to an oceanside walking/running trail in the other direction. The rooms of the villa are simple, clean, and comfortable - exactly what you need for a training like this. The food is next level. The outdoor gathering spaces for class and meals were so beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen and housekeeping teams were all spectacular - so grateful for the part they played in making this a wonderful experience.

      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 & 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. 💜🧘🏻‍♀️
