Location and Accommodation

The Yoga Teacher Training will take place in the privileged and quiet location - Jardin Ganesha Yoga Studio, located only 1 minute away from the beach and all the restaurants in Los Tamarindos, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico.

 

It is only a 50-minute flight away from Mexico City. You have a choice of two arrival airports with regular flights in both directions. Puerto Escondido has its own airport (PXM) and it's about 2 hours away from Huatulco Airport (HUX). 

Puerto Escondido is a surfing Mecca of Mexico, but each of its eight beaches has its own charm and its own distinct personality. It is a special destination to enjoy the Pacific coast among history, culture, and nature. The combination of half-empty beaches and moderate prices makes this up-and-coming area very attractive for travelers, who are looking for a safe journey but ready to explore beyond the popular Mexican beach areas.

Jardin Ganesha Yoga Studio ​is located by the powerful Pacific Ocean. During the break time you can enjoy sounds of breaking waves, while swinging in a hammock on an airy terrace.

 

The studio is fully equipped for our Yoga Teacher Training. We provide yoga mats, blocks, belts, blankets and bolsters. Students are free to bring their own equipment.

Jane is the BEST yoga instructor/teacher. I love going to her classes so much that I've attended one of her retreats and visited another two times for her yoga classes (I'm from NY). She's attentive, coaching, and patient. She adjusts you when needed which helps you improve on your yoga stances every time you go to her.

BEST yoga teacher in Puerto. Jane is incredibly knowledgeable, gifted, and passionate. She gives the perfect amount of breathing techniques, meditative breaks, and also really pushes you during the asanas but without making it seem “pushy”. You can just feel how educated she is about the body in all of her flows, adjustments and queues. Honestly one of the best teachers I’ve practiced with in a long time and I’ve been doing yoga for 10+ years. Highly recommend!
