Our graduated teachers tell us that they feel confident to teach yoga when they graduate. Those who come to simply deepen their yoga knowledge, do exactly that, in this training.
We teach Classic Yoga based on Yoga Sutras 8 limbs of yoga with the Krishnamacharya parameters for sequencing vinyasa at the roots. To help you to be a well-rounded practitioner or teacher, your training will also include instruction on Hatha yoga, Children’s yoga, Restorative yoga and Pre-natal yoga as well as working with Seniors. Our curriculum has been reviewed and approved by the Yoga Alliance, so when you graduate, you will be eligible for registering with this organization. See our links below for course pricing, course curriculum, what a typical day is like and suggestions for local housing during your stay. We are an established program with hundreds of graduates – read what they have to say below. The yoga teacher training instruction is lead in English with some Spanish translation if needed.
The advantage of our training is that it is offered in a working yoga shala. You will have hands-on experience assisting students in the community classes. You will learn a great deal about teaching methodology and creating/giving classes of your own. By the time you graduate, you will have gained valuable teaching experience so when you sit in front of your students, you are ready!
Due to varying personal preferences and budgets, we run non-residential teacher training programs. There are many housing options within a 5-minute walk of Davannayoga. Please see our Housing Recommendations in the link below. Once you have registered, we can help you to connect with others in the course who would like to share housing if you are looking to share.
Anna Laurita is a full time yoga teacher, mother of three teens and owner of davannayoga in Puerto Vallarta. She believes you can measure the progress in your yoga practice by the incremental peace you feel daily and how you share that with others. When not teaching yoga, she can be found on a paddle board or walking her dog with her husband.
