The Innate Teacher Training program is a 200 Hour Level One certification program carefully designed by Natalie Perez-Hayden. The program is for serious students of yoga who want to deepen their practice, and for students who wish to become teachers themselves.

This training will prepare you to facilitate inward and outward growth in yourself and in your students confidently, by living, learning, and embracing all aspects of a yogic lifestyle. Innate deepens the connection to oneself and the earth through the wisdom of Mayan and Ayurvedic healing practices. These traditions, designed to grant you access to the infinite wisdom you carry within, harmonize with the spirit of Innate to form a holistic offering rooted in the Indian philosophy of yoga and blending Natalie’s rich Mayan ancestry.

Stroll over the garden pond or swim in the pool overlooking the jungle and pastures. Hear the bird songs as you breathe in the moments at the jungle spa.
