22 days Holistic & Somatic Yoga Training in jungle of Tulum
19.05 - 09.06.2023

Connect with your body's unique wisdom as you immerse yourself in deeply holistic practises in our 22 days Yoga Teacher Training in Tulum. This course is designed to support your path of yoga, self-realization and movement with a somatic approach, so you can take your personal practise to next level and start (or continue) your teaching journey mindfully. You will spend 3 weeks in beautiful lush jungle by the Caribbean, in an environment that supports your journey of exploration, celebrating life and nature around you and sharing it with other beautiful souls.

We are all about connecting with your own body's wisdom, finding your inner teacher within and going further in exploration. This is a chance to take time to see where your practise can take you when you are being encouraged to truly expand and flourish, while finding inspiration in community and embodying the peacefulness of nature around. And to make this holistic training even more special, we will experience traditional Mexican ceremonies with a local facilitator, so we can really connect with the land and the elements.



wisdom from within

Sanctuary OM is nestled in the tropical jungle of Tulum, a true refuge in a middle of a mystical atmosphere which facilitates body-mind-spirit alignment, allowing it's guests to enjoy sustainable gastronomy, harmonious living and the spirit of the jungle. Even though we are into the wild, we are so close to the beautiful turquoise blue beaches along the Caribbean side, ancient Mayan ruins, world class cave diving, Kaan Luum Lagoon, Sian Ka’an UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve and walking distance from 4 of the most pristine and beautiful cenotes (natural pools) in the region.

For who?
This course takes your practise deeper, and suits well those who are just starting their teaching journey, or who are already teaching yoga or other movement practises but want to go further in exploration and find new angles and authencity to their teaching style.
The focus of the course is to get really connected with your own body, to be able to connect with others. As you get deeper into your practise, you will learn to guide your students confidently in their individual paths, meeting them where they are at and give them space to explore, go within and challenge themselves in a way that feels safe and good.

We will explore many different aspects of yoga that go way beyond asana, including bhakti (the path of devotion) through the practice of Kirtan (chanting mantras), dhyana (meditation) and deep, personal explorations of yogic philosophy. We are all about an inclusive approach to learning that revolves around exploring yogic themes and topics together in open dialogue and embodied, somatic practice. There won’t be any top-down teaching from a high horse – we are all students on this path together, all looking to access our innate wisdom and supporting each other on this journey.

This training will support you in removing any blockages that might be holding you back from accessing your full potential, stepping into your power and opening your heart as much as possible. More than a teacher, we will support you on the journey of becoming a wholehearted facilitator that is able to hold space in a variety of holistic events.

You will learn:
Asana alignment, to give adjustments and alternatives, efficient use of props. Methods to create your own yoga sequences and classes that alignes with you and your style of teaching, creating an atmosphere in your classes connected to your purpose. Yogic philosophy for modern daily life, history of yoga for context. Functional anatomy for mindful movers, safe practising and injury prevention. Kirtan, mantras, meditation techniques, chakra alignment and subtle body awareness. We will also discover somatic movement & nervous system regulation, embodiment and body integration practises and experience the essence of community in special sharing circles and ceremonies, in traditional Mexican style.

Niko Boddin

Niko Boddin is a holistically oriented yoga teacher and body-mind-heart coach. His main goal is to help people get out of their heads, into their bodies and in touch with their hearts so they can enjoy a fulfilling life with better health, greater peace of mind and deeper connections.


His philosophy is that in order to heal and become fully integrated humans, we need to bring balance and harmony to all aspects of our being - this includes the mind/psyche, the body, the heart and our primal/creative energies. Therefore he works with a variety of tools and practices, most of which revolve around movement, music and meditation.

Niko is formally trained in Hatha and Vinyasa at Krishna Village in NSW, Australia, where he immersed himself in a yogic lifestyle for several months and followed the path of Bhakti yoga (the path of devotion and selfless service).


Niko is also a certified Qigong instructor and draws on knowledge, wisdom and inspiration from diverse traditions, the main ones being Yoga & Hindu traditions, Tantra, Qigong, Taoism and Buddhism. Furthermore, he loves to facilitate cacao ceremonies, kirtan/singing circles, active and passive meditations, men's circles, ecstatic dances and other yummy gatherings. Anything that helps himself and others get out of their heads and open their hearts a little bit more!

Niko’s classes aim to break free from rigid ideas about what yoga is and isn’t. By incorporating elements from different traditions, he creates a wholesome practice that nourishes and honors the entire body, mind and spirit equally.


When we let go of strict labels and preconceived notions, we are able to move through our practice freely and with ease. We respectfully draw ideas and techniques from different traditions without being too attached to one system, and his yoga classes reflect this free, open approach.


Liz Palacios

Student of the arts and wisdom of her own body, Liz has been a companion for others into their own self discovery since 2010. Nowadays she is comitted to bring back the sacredness of life celebrating rites of passage in traditional Mexican ways.

Yoga, mindful meditation and water healing  techniques are among her most powerful tools to come back to balance. In her Circles of Sacred Cacao we gather to call for the spirit of the Maya land in the medicine of the cacao, as a heart opener and soul aligning, the cacao will guide us to a higher pourpose; connecting with your higher self and celebrating the new tribe we are forming.

Dharma circles are other safe and sacred space for us to come back to ourselves, acknowledging whatever is present in us at that moment and giving it time to express. We share so that the benefit of our own wellbeing reaches far away to borders of time and space as a calming and nurturing balm benefiting all infinite beings.

Liz's Body Integration workshops are inspired by the 5 rythms by Gabrielle Roth. We will embrace a journey of body integration by giving space to listen to our own ryhtms and the way they manifest through the free movement of the body while balancing our lifes, thoughts and emotions, allowing the free flow of life to guide you into new creations.
