Past Yoga Teacher Training Retreats
2018 Yoga Retreat
After 3 trainings in Santorini we decided to try a different island. We were looking for a more laid back and relaxed atmosphere. While Santorini is stunning, with it come the crowds. Known for its traditional fishing villages and private beaches, Paros was the answer and Okreblue Eco Retreat Center did not disappoint. We appreciated the seafront property, the chill vibe, the fully equipped beautiful shala and the Ayurvedic chef from North India fusing the most interesting Greek Indian food, after all Raita and Tzatziki are not that different! Since this was a retreat and not a training we had ample time to explore all the beaches, restaurants and hidden gems of this rustic island.
2017 – 100 hr Advanced Module & 2013 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
Who doesn’t love Italy? What’s not to love – pizza, wine, sunflowers, cobblestone roads, country estates, olive groves, lingering lunches and late dinners. It’s one of the most famous lifestyles in the world. Practicing Yoga in Italy is the perfect balance to La Dolce Vita. The 100 hr Module focused on mornings full of hands on adjustments then teaching and practicing advanced postures and transitions. Afternoons were more relaxed with Chakra studies, Restorative and Yin Yoga.
Drishti’s Yoga Teacher Traning in Italy was a unforgettable life transforming experience. This special training retreat took place in the beautiful Sunflower retreat center that sits within the walled town of Casperia.
Tamarindo, Costa Rica
2014, 2015, 2016 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
2017, 2018 – 100 hr Yin/Yang Modules
One of our all time favorite destinations! After 5 different trainings, El Sabanero Eco Lodge has almost become a second home with it’s sparkling pool and open air shala overlooking the surrounding hills. Neighborhood monkeys and iguanas are reminders that you are a guest in their natural environment while the healthy, delicious vegetarian food reminds you of the abundance of the jungle. It’s no coincidence that Costa Rica is a Blue Zone and Blue Zones go hand in hand with Yoga.
Napa Valley, California
Mayacamas Ranch, Napa Valley
2015, 2016 Yoga, Wellness & Wine
We pride ourselves on living balanced lifestyles which is why we started offering weekend retreats full of food, wine and fun (in addition to yoga of course)! We are sad to say Mayacamas Ranch has closed due to repeated seasons of wildfires in the region, but our memories of wine tasting and smores will live on for a lifetime.
2014, 2015, 2016 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
If you’ve ever been to Santorini, you know how jaw-droppingly gorgeous it is. For three years in a row we never tired of the views, the food or the refreshing pool at the Pelagos Hotel, not to mention the people, sunsets and days off sailing the Aegean Sea. Santorini solidifies the definition of “Living the dream.” A month of doing Yoga on a Mediterranean Island? Yes Please!
Koh Phangan, Thailand
2014, 2015 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
Turquoise waters and lush green palms. Thai Massage and Muay Thai Boxing.
White sand beaches and fresh coconuts. Thailand and Southeast Asia have always been popular with backpackers and full moon revelers returning to paradise, but with 20 yoga centers on Koh Phangan alone, the island continues to remain a favorite among Yogis worldwide.
Our Thailand Yoga Teacher Training took place on the exotic island of Koh Phangan located in the Gulf of Thailand, about 600 km south of Bangkok.
2013, 2014 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
The Motherland of Yoga. Sarah and Carri met 10 years ago at an Ashtanga training in Kerala.
The relaxing atmosphere of Agonda was the perfect setting to deepen our practice and absorb the brilliant colors and sounds of India.
Sarah built her own Yoga Shala on the beach and taught a full season in Agonda. It’s no wonder we returned twice more, honoring the tradition of passing down the practice from student to teacher.
2013 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
After Carri spent two different seasons teaching at a Yoga and Surf retreat here, it was only natural to meet the students on their mats in this laid back vortex on the North Shore.
The Yoga Teacher Traning in Mancora Peru was a huge success. Mancora Boasts 300 Days of Sunshine per year, Fresh Delicious Seafood, and a Variety of activities.
San Pancho, Mexico
2012 – 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
Where it all began! In a secluded jungle on a private beach with all the avocados we could handle, Drishti Yoga spent our first month with no internet, just three students and a heart full of smiles. 10 years later, we’re still smiling.
Set in the jungle of the Pacific Coast of Mexico. A true yoga retreat where daily we enjoyed fresh delicious vegetarian Mexican food, leafy green palms, and secluded beaches.
