Niyama Yoga Retreats
Residential 200 HsTeacher Training
Nov 15 to Dec 12 20205


Niyama Yoga Shala is an esteemed center of education for Yoga, Ayurveda, Sound Therapy, and Energy Healing has expanded its reach to tropical and pristine Ayampe, Ecuador. Our RESIDENTIAL 200 HOUR THERAPEUTIC YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM offers our clients and community at large the ability to fully immerse oneself in the Art of Self Study at our Ayampe, Ecuador Retreat Center.

During this 28 Day Teacher Training Program you will immerse yourself into the realm of Yoga Therapy under the guidance of Nicole Zornitzer, a Certified E-RYT 2000 Yoga Therapist, Ayurvedic Counselor, Sound Healer and owner of Niyama Yoga Shalas Worldwide. Couple this with the serenity of experiencing life in a tiny village nestled between the jungle and the sea in comfortable and modern accommodations by Vistamar in Ayampe

This intensive 200 Hour YTT enables trainees the opportunity to become educated in yoga philosophy, asanas, appropriate body alignment, anatomy and explore a more yogic / ayurvedic lifestyle in the magical land of Ayampe, Ecuador. You will enjoy and absorb the tranquility of Ayampe while learning, experiencing, sharing, and challenging yourself as we explore Traditional Therapeutic Yoga. This program is accredited by the International Yoga Alliance and is presented by a team that has a combined experience of over 50 years in the industry.

Your YTT experience will be transformational not only for the invaluable information learned with regards to your yoga practice but also what you will take away from spending time in Vistamar in Ayampe. This little paradise is one of the few places to have resisted the whirlwind feel of modernity. While you enjoy hot water, fast wifi, a/c, competent english speaking staff you will be transported to a space that exists on what feels like the edge of modernism. While Ayampe has a constant flow of international travelers, artists and people who are on the move in life along with diverse fresh cuisine, it still remains a village of 300 full time residents with dirt roads and forests on all sides.
