.your home for 24 days

Casa de los sueños

Once upon a time Kanami and her husband  Andrew had a dream: to build a house somewhere warm where they could slowly build a life together. After a six week visit to Puerto Escondido they knew that was going to be the place. Fast forward six years: they now live in this house, located in La Punta, Puerto Escondido, just up the hill from Zicatela Beach. La Casa de los Sueños is a house built with thought, intention, and lots of love. 

It has a beautiful yoga space upstairs underneath a cool palapa roof, spacious outdoor living spaces, and a big yard for Andrew to plant all his favourite trees and plants, and for their three happy dogs to run around in. As soon as they moved in Kanami knew what to call her new yoga space upstairs: La Buena Vida Yoga Shala!

Join Kanami and Kameko’s next 200hour YTT and become part of La Buena Vida family. Feel completely at ease during your Level 1 course in this house built with love, and filled with love by Domino, Piña, and Charlie (Kanami’s three dogs). Expect lots of 1-on-1 attention during your training since this will be a small group with a maximum of five students. The small number will ensure each student will get the support they need to thrive through the detailed curriculum. This will be a more advanced Level 1, so please be prepared to focus and study hard.

Casa de los Sueños is close to the best surf spots, restaurants, cafes, and shops, but far enough away to feel quiet, spacious, and peaceful. Get ready to live the good life in Puerto Escondido: once you’re here you’ll never want to leave!

You will also learn the energetic effects of yoga on the body, and will study PRANA in detail.

Practice different styles and techniques of meditation and pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) everyday. Develop a deep understanding and connection with both so you can easily share their immense benefits with your students.

The fastest way to becoming a great yoga teacher is practice, practice, and more practice. Students will be given plenty of classroom time to plan many styles of classes: from a challenging, fast-paced Power practice, to a super mellow, relaxing yin stretch-out, and everything in between.
