Yoga Teacher Training Mexico

Get your Yoga Certification in Mexico

Come join me on the tropical island of Isla Mujeres – just a short ferry ride away from Cancun. Special in my heart because this island is the location of my very first yoga retreat vacation 25+ years ago. I am happy to be returning to conduct a 200 hour yoga teacher training, and again for a 100 hour advanced teacher training – one of three modules leading toward a 300 hour certification.
Isla Mujeres reminds me of Tulum without the long traffic-filled drive, crowds and seagrass on the beach. Translated as the island of women by the Mayan civilization from the 5th century, associated with the goddess Ixchel, goddess of the earth, moon, and medicine. The island is much quieter and removed from the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Blessed with beautiful white sand beaches and teal colored waters, and the largest beach rated the top beach in the world by TripAdvisor travelers. A safe place to visit, I love the funky shops and restaurants, the artistic architecture, and that scooters and golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation on the island.
We love being at a beautiful and intimate private resort with an emphasis on tranquility, reflection, relaxation, and healing energy located on the quiet side of the island. Luxury lodging, deliciously healthy meals, stunning views of the ocean, private white sand beach, private dock, a relaxing pool, comfortable ocean-view seating, and yoga shalas with sweeping vista of the light blue waters that surround the property. The owners and staff are welcoming, friendly, supportive, and relaxed. A perfect location for this immersive experience. Put your shoes away and go barefoot for your entire stay for this more intimate experience!

Whether your goal is to deepen your yoga practice and understanding, or to teach yoga with an in-depth knowledge passed along from an experience yoga teacher (and teacher of thousands of yoga teachers)- you can find your path with Marianne Wells Yoga School. We provide a training experience that will challenge you to expand your view of yoga, in a comfortable location filled with nature’s abundance to inspire and support you along each step of your personal journey.

Yoga Training Mexico Details

Most frequent questions and answers for our RYT Mexico Certification Retreat

You will fly into Cancun Mexico (CUN) Airport. I advise arriving a few days early to ease into the new time zone, and be ready on our first day together in training.

There are several hotels / resorts to stay at around the airport. We recommend the Ixchel Beach Hotel.  Taxi service is easily arranged and very safe on the island.

Excellent. I always make sure that our locations have a internet connection that is fast and reliable.

Water is very healing, so I always contract with resorts / homes very close to the ocean.

What is the difference between your 200 & 300 programs?
Our foundational 200 hour yoga teacher training is a wonderful introduction to the rich history of  yoga.  You will learn why the ancient teachings are relevant today and how to apply them to your everyday life and in teaching others.  Teaching techniques, study of energetic systems (chakras and doshas), study of anatomy that is most relevant for a yoga teacher to know are hallmarks of our 200 hour training.
Our 300 hour yoga teacher training retreats are divided into three 100 hour modules. Each designed to bring you much deeper into your study of yoga, both in teaching and in personal lifestyle practice. Advance your understaning, personal practice, and teaching technique with these three deeper dives into yoga.
Can I take the modules in any order?
Yes! Marianne specifically design this advanced training to be extremely flexible. Each module stands on its own.  The advanced modular program is designed to fit the needs and interests – in the time allotted to each retreat, the period of study in preparation, the application of each module into your personal practice and teaching, and the approach to each of the distinctive modules.
Can I attend the advanced training modules if my 200 hour training is from another school?
Yes you can! If you did not attend Marianne Wells Yoga School for your 200 hour YTT,  we request that you speak to Marianne in advance of registration. We want to confirm that your prior school 200 hour training  taught yoga philosophy and applied anatomy, and created a sequence and taught it as part of your prior curriculum guidelines. If your prior training did not cover these topics in depth, it may simply mean that you may need to work a bit more in preparation for these advanced modules.
Can I take one of your modules for 100 hours credit?
Yes. At the end of each module you will receive a 100 hour certificate from Marianne Wells Yoga school. However know that there is no such thing under the Yoga Alliance guidelines as a 400-RYT. The Yoga Alliance has “200-RYT” and “300-RYT” and + “500 E-RYT” That is all. So if you take just one module you can use those hours as continuing education credits.
What else, other than take your modules, is required to complete my 300?
For each module there are pre attendance assignments. They are not complicated. They are designed to help shift your mind into the modules teachings. There is nothing you need to do after you take a modular training retreat.
What kind of support do I have before and after the training modules?
Each training forms a kula of like-minded people from around the world. We use Facebook and Insta gram, and LinkedIn to stay connected, both in personal and professional settings.  Many students meet through our training,  and forge personal and business relationships. We also offer lifelong professional mentoring to our students.  With students in over 60 countries around the world, it is getting easier each year to meet a teacher that attended Marianne Wells Yoga School.  It’s a beautiful thing!
How much time do I have to complete the three modules to earn my 300?
Five years is recommended. The best thing you can do for yourself is to commit with dedication to this process. Ideally, if you could take one module each year, and process of the teachings from that module, you will have absorbed and implement the teachings into your life.

Meet Marianne – Your E-RYT Instructor

A leader in the yoga community, I have been teaching yoga for more than 30 years, drawing on the traditions of Bhakti, Tantra, Hatha and Vinyasa to help bring the ancient universal wisdom of yoga to modern seekers. What the Ancients called the sacred path has become a way of life for me. It’s about learning how to experience and promote a peaceful connection between the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual bodies, and discovering who we are and why we are here. My multidimensional yoga trainings will inspire you to live from your heart, to find your peaceful inner strength and to see the unity within our diversity – that we are all One.
Marianne Wells
E-RYT 500 Certified instructor


“I feel that I now have a better understanding of the philosophy that I can apply to my own life to make me a better person, and in turn, a better teacher for others. I can weave some big picture morals into Savasana during a class on positive thinking and creating the environment in which you want to live. I came to the teacher training thinking that I would learn more for my personal practice, but I’m happily surprised that I feel comfortable to safely teach those close to me now.”

Phil (Norway)

“I enjoyed waking up and beginning each day with quiet, focused intentions. It helped me set the mood for my learning and my connections to the other community members there. We learned so much about the anatomy, Chakras, and the history of yoga. It was an experience unlike any before. Truly transformational. Thank you for your support, Marianne.”

Sophia (USA)

“I came into this experience with a lot of baggage and searching for something for better in my life. Through this experience I was able to connect with a community mentally, physically, and spiritually. I grew as a human being, and I grew in my yoga practice. I came out of this with the ability to understand that this is just life nothing more, nothing less, so just let that shit go!”

Stephanie (New Zealand)

“Chair yoga really opened my eyes! How Ron and Marianne teach anatomy, I 100% “get it” what the student should be feeling, and why the process of moving bodies is very important. Marianne’s creative activities helped me relax and understand the subjects. I am so happy I was introduced to the sutras by the Marianne Wells Yoga School! Marianne’s passion and Ron’s insightful fun energy made each day a joy! I get it! Yoga is more than asana 🙂 My favorite part is how well thought-out each part of everyday was. Yoga is life. No more, no less. Let-That Shit-Go! 🙂
