Pavones Yoga Center is a home away from home. Upon walking through the gates the very first day, I felt this incredible welcoming, positive, and supportive energy. It is so difficult to decide what the highlight of this training was: Indira's in depth instruction or Alex's delicious food (carrot apple muffins especially!). Indira did such a wonderful job at making... More

I completed the 200-hour yoga alliance certificate course. I will say this - transformative! The entire experience was exactly what I was hoping for 1) a safe, beautiful place to work on my yoga practice, 2) a place filled with like-minded thoughtful and kind people, 3) an adventure to remember for a lifetime. Pros: 1) Top-notch yoga instruction 2) Amazing... More

If you're thinking about heading to PYC, just go! It will be the best decision you make this decade. I was there for the 200 hours yoga teacher training this January.

Thank you so much for the incredibly sweet review ... I'm especially grateful for your encouragement to those who may worry that their physical yoga practice isn't "developed enough."

I could not have hoped for anything more from a yoga teacher training than what I experienced at the PYC 200-hour training. The website clearly describes PYC’s mission stating: “By marrying time-honored yogic techniques with the latest science on mindfulness, physical and neural anatomy, and nutrition, our holistic approach delivers life-long skills to help graduates lead vibrant lives that are...

The stunning location of the Pavones Yoga Centre is but the tip of the iceberg of the outstanding experience I enjoyed while participating in the 200 hour yoga teacher training program held in February, 2016.

Paradoxically, I journeyed miles into the unknown to come home to myself. This is a magical place. Indira is an authentic and kind teacher for the 200 hour yoga teacher training (learning all aspects of yoga: physical emotional mental and spiritual).
