Dana Point Yoga
Rafael & Julie

Rafael & Julie


We created our Yoga Teacher Academy 5 years ago because nothing like this existed before.

Many moons ago we left our consulting business to pursue our passion to share yoga with our community and live a purposeful life. 
Although we both had run businesses before, operating multiple yoga studios and employees… 

It was Hard, Really Hard.

We had to figure everything out on our own, and no one to lean on for help.

We have dedicated our lives to change all of this for yoga teachers.

Because with YTA, we not only give you the tools to succeed, you’re also supporting other yoga teachers just like you on their journey. 

Because this is more than yoga… this is family. 




Yoga Teacher Academy is located in the heart of Dana Point’s Lantern District in Orange County, California.

  • Seriously, the ocean is right there when you get off of the exit.

From John Wayne Airport

With the recent upgrades to Dana Point’s nearest airport, John Wayne Airport (SNA), and five other airports within 100 miles of Dana Point, it’s never been easier to fly to Southern California. From John Wayne Airport, it’s a nearly traffic-free, 25-minute drive down CA-73 to Dana Point. Most rental car companies tie the license plates to a toll transponder, making it seamless for you to get from the airport to the ocean. No searching for spare change to pay a toll!

Nearby airports include:

  • John Wayne Airport, Orange County (SNA)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
  • LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT)
  • Long Beach Airport (LGB)
  • San Diego International Airport (SAN)
  • Palm Springs International Airport (PSP)

I-5 is the primary north-south route through Orange County and passes through the eastern portion of the city, making getting to Dana Point by car a breeze. State Route 1 begins in Dana Point and continues northwest through the city to other coastal Orange County towns and attractions. Those who prefer to travel by train or bus will be happy to hear that both Amtrak and Metrolink service nearby San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente. From there, you can Uber or take the Dana Point Trolley into town.


Richard Henry Dana Jr. called Dana Point, “the most romantic spot in California”. From Doheny State Beach to Dana Point Harbor to the cliffs of the Headlands Conservation Trail, this beach town is full of stunning views and treasures that are sure to make for great memories for your yoga teacher training.

Dana Point is known as the Whale Capital of the West, you’re just about guaranteed to see blowhole bursts dotting the horizon throughout the season. The Beach Boys famously serenaded the scene in this town, as visitors have enjoyed sport fishing, sailing, watersports, and more, for decades.

With miles of fine white sandy beaches, great restaurants, and the perfect climate, the city is a popular yoga destination. Your stay will be less than 20 minutes from the Meditation Garden in Encinitas and the Chopra Center.
