About this trip

If yoga has changed your life and you want to pass that passion on to others, then this is the program for you. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of yoga, follow your heart and become a certified yoga teacher!

If you’re reading this right now, you’re here because you have a desire to evolve. You’re here because you want to reach your true potential and you’re here because you want to help others do the same. This program is exactly where you’re supposed to be, and we are excited to be a part of the journey!

This program has been made to be accessible and enjoyable for anyone who is willing to put all their efforts into positively transforming their lives and the lives of those they come in contact with. We want to help elevate leaders who have a burning desire to elevate the lives of the people around them.

This program is unique. It is designed to help you find your own authentic teaching voice and inherent natural style. This teacher training will build a strong foundation and provide teaching techniques that will help the student of yoga transform into a teacher of yoga. It will deepen and build your personal practice as you embark on a transformational journey toward becoming an inspiring yoga instructor. You will be challenged to go deeper into your physical practice and awaken within you, the capacity to guide, inform and inspire others.

You’ll leave having discovered your true self. To get to your true self, you must examine dreams you have forgotten, fears that are holding you back, and beliefs that are not your own. Finding the courage to discover who you really are will help you realize your true potential.

We encourage you to let go of your conditioned and limited beliefs and behaviors. This practice will, only then, help you tap into your true gifts and discover your true purpose. This will be a physically, mentally and emotionally demanding experience.

Our goals are to maximize your full potential and to turn your dreams into reality. At the end of the program, we want you to move forward in your life with more clarity, confidence, courage, love and happiness. We feel the best way to find a deeper connection with your inner being is in a peaceful and natural environment. Join us for a life-enhancing experience in paradise!

What Makes Our Teacher Training Unique?


- We honor our connection with nature and mother earth. We approach yoga as a means of exploring and deepening this connection.

- We understand that the learning process is not linear. Our teaching model incorporates group discussion, hands-on experimentation, experiential learning, and instructor support and feedback.

- We value the student learning process as both somatic and intellectual, offering rest and/or movement breaks throughout the day to encourage integration of the material.

- We value spiritual growth and personal development as a part of our YTT experience. While this is an intensive learning environment, it is also an opportunity to be impacted by yoga on a deep level.

- We emphasize safe and accurate anatomical cueing to support the longevity of your and your students' practices.

- We encourage modifications, adaptations, and the use of props to share yoga with all body types and needs.

About The Location - Casa Coco

We dreamed for over a decade of creating a beautiful Caribbean sanctuary where guests could unwind, refresh, and immerse in comfort, tranquility and timeless style. A place where stress dissolves in the beautiful blue sea, sunsets take your breath away, and the daily grind returns to a welcome fragrance in the morning air.  

Welcome to Coco B Isla & Coco B Yoga & Wellness, a sanctuary on Isla Mujeres, the Isle of Women. The island is home of Ixchell, the Mayan Goddess of fertility & Healing, and one of the Caribbean's most wonderful islands celebrating the Mexican and Mayan cultures afloat on the crystal blue Caribbean waters. 

Coco B Isla is dedicated to offering a beautiful luxury yoga & wellness sanctuary where like minded guests will practice, relax, connect, and delight in the splendor of the sanctuary, the island, and beautiful region.

In that mission they have created a full service destination dedicated to offering a luxury all-inclusive yoga and vacation experience.

A wonderful opportunity to deepen my yoga practice in a gorgeous setting with a gifted and talented yoga teacher, Nina Yau. Nina knows her yoga and breaks down every movement into precise segments to make the poses accessible to everyone she teaches. Even better, she taught a variety of yoga styles, including a traditional Hatha sequence and mixed movement art of Budokon yoga. Coco B Wellness resort provided the perfect backdrop for our yoga retreat. We practiced on a rooftop Palupa with a view of the ocean and Isla Mujeres' natural beauty. The staff was very helpful, especially when it came to shielding our rooftop Palupa from ocean breezes. Kitchen staff prepared sumptuous food and every meal they served was spot-on. I couldn't have given myself a better birthday present as I enter my fifth decade of life!
We were beautifully greeted every step along the way. This facility is magnificent. Boutique in feeling, clean and contemporary in look and a staff to serve with kindness and desire. We were a small retreat yet we were treated as if the place was ours, we were home.

I had imagined the perfect yoga retreat – challenging yet accessible classes, a master teacher who gives great hands-on assists, a sense of community among attendees, fresh fruit & seafood, a tropical island, and chill boutique lodging. Nina’s retreat was this and more. Challenging yet accessible classes by a master teacher: Nina is a master teacher. Her classes will challenge your strength, flexibility, and balance. But, she doesn’t just call difficult poses, she gives you the steps and building blocks to get there. For example, she offered building blocks to getting to Crow which no teacher had shared with me before. These helped me get closer to the pose, but also helped more advanced practitioners build additional strength to accomplish the pose with more grace. She also pushes you to further deepen your practice and transitions between poses. For instance, instead of launching yourself into Half Moon using momentum, Nina guides the class through an intentional transition from Warrior II, to Triangle, to slowly lifting into Half Moon. A variety of yoga styles: Nina is a teacher who has dedicated extensive time and rigor to her own learning. At our retreat, we practiced traditional hatha, vinyasa flow, slow flow, yin flow, yin (which targets fascia, tendons, and tissues through long holds), yoga nidra (a deep relaxation meditation sometimes known as yogic sleep), zazen (seated meditation), and budokon (a moderately paced style with martial arts and animal locomotion influences). Nina teaches each of these styles with ease, deep knowledge, and great hands-on assists. Beyond asana: Nina told us at the opening of the retreat that “this is not just a yoga retreat; it is also a wellness retreat” – and she Thoughtfully planned & well communicated: Nina is intentional about building a full experience. Everything from the location, to the accommodations, to the meals, to the daily schedule, to the sequencing of classes was curated, arranged and communicated with clarity and great care. A positive community between attendees: Nina fosters an environment of joy, inclusion, fun, and loving kindness. I didn’t know any of the attendees going into the retreat, but we developed into fast friends. This is in large part thanks to Nina. She designed the retreat intentionally with some group meals, an opening circle to help people get to know each other in a meaningful way, and by selecting a semi-private boutique hotel with space for the group to relax and mingle. Prior to attending this retreat, I had occasionally taken Nina’s classes. I admired her intentional cohesive classes and her joyful energy. Nina is a teacher who does not distance herself from her students. Coming out of this retreat, I am honored to call her not just my teacher but also my friend.

My retreat yogi students and I had a fabulous experience as Casa Coco! Lisa, Jeffrey, and the Coco culinary team and staff were attentive and so welcoming. Anything we needed, we had taken care of. All of the restaurant recommendations on the island were absolutely delicious and fantastic. Wonderful spa and massage services anywhere on the property with flexible times. The food was incredibly fresh and beautiful. Definitely would come back again. Thank you Coco B team!!!

I wish I was more of a poet to do justice to my experience here. Thank you Peter and Mitchel! I am profoundly grateful! I love all the yoga we did and I learned so much. Casa Coco is a gem! So clean, and tidy, and the staff are really very professional! The decor is welcoming. The food was delich! Sylvia, Lisa, Roberto, Kevin, and Emma are so thoughtful! When we came into our rooms and liked them immediately, we truly felt at home. Also, there's the rooftop purpose-build yoga spaces... 2 spacious palapas. (Thanks Mitch for teaching me that word!) Doing yoga in the open weather twice a day was a treat I quickly came to cherish. The roof's ribbing was available to suspend aerial yoga swings. The tranquility... I've been back home 2 days and I miss Casa coco, my classmates, and my wonderful teachers. This is a boutique operation of the highest quality. I sincerely encourage everyone to give it a chance.
