Kootenay Yoga School

isla mujeres, Mexico

Kootenay Yoga School and Retreat Center is located on the gorgeous island of Isla Mujeres in Cancun.  It was founded in an attempt to allow the local and global community to break away from the daily grind and submerge themselves in self-exploration and self-discovery.

If you’re searching for a mindful and impactful YTT training course, Kootenay Yoga School is one of the best places to cross the threshold between being a student and sharing your yogic knowledge with other like-minded individuals.

Since its establishment in 2015, Kootenay Yoga School has been dedicated to crafting distinctive and immersive experiences for every person who comes to learn and reset here. What initially commenced as a personal exploration and a brief weekend workshop has evolved into a life-altering yoga facility, leaving a lasting impact on countless individuals. 

They facilitate exceptional 200-hour yoga teacher training courses led by Stephania Spitzer (E-RYT 200, RYT 500) and designed to inspire, challenge, and encourage internal growth. The picturesque beaches of Mexico, clear blue waters, and a vibrant local community make Isla Mujeres a perfect place to take a deep dive into yoga philosophy, asana practice, and teaching methodology. The curriculum correlates with the highest standards of Yoga Alliance teacher training programs, and even so, the trainers at Kootenay Yoga aim to go above and beyond.

In addition to their YTTs in Cancun, this yoga school facilitates intensive and immersive 15-day training in Joshua Tree, California. This 200-hour program is just as comprehensive as the course in Isla Mujeres, perhaps a little closer to home for those living on the West Coast.
