Authentic Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Montanita are proud to offer its 15th 200-hour teacher training course. Expand your practice with us on the beautiful coast of Ecuador! Join them for this immersion into all aspects of Yoga. The focus of the program is on vinyasa flow and over the month you will be methodically taught the skills and information needed to be successful in your own personal practice or as a new teacher.
Located two and a half hours southwest of Guayaquil, Montanita has become a must-stop on the Ecuadorian coast. This small town has become famous for its beach, surf, and laid-back atmosphere. With a diverse population of people from all over the world, varied nightlife and delicious food, there is something for everyone!
The hotel and studio are located just a 10-minute walk north along the beach to an area lovingly called "La Punta". This little community of hotels and restaurants spends its time surfing, chilling, doing yoga, and of course, maximizing hammock time!
At Casa del Sol, you will find an organic mix of indoor and outdoor spaces designed with a perfect balance of quartz stone and bamboo. Encompassed by an infinite supply of good energy and sunshine, you may never want to leave!
From simple rooms to deluxe, Casa del Sol Montanita has price points to suit all budgets. There are 12 rooms spread out over three floors, offering private bathrooms with hot water, shared balconies, and fast and reliable internet (they know that is important to you). One free bag of laundry per week and unlimited coffee, tea, and drinking water are also included.
Every day, you will wake up to a delicious breakfast made fresh with local ingredients. They are all vegetarian and range from quinoa porridge to an egg quesadilla, all served with unlimited coffee or tea.
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation

Cheryl Oliver, E-RYT500, has been teaching Sanskrit, vedic chant and yoga philosophy since 2004, and yoga asana since 1998. Our practice, teaching and philosophy is based on presenting students with direct experiences of yoga. We both honor and refresh the traditions of the astanga vinyasa system, making the practice applicable and accessible all. We encourage students to read, to contemplate, to question. We encourage students to experience a variety of practices to challenge our preconceptions, to refine our physical practice, to expand our minds, and to open our hearts.
