About this trip

Join Nicholas Coolridge AKA Modern Tarzan and the Yoga Academy team for this tropical adventure!! Laugh, play, learn Acro form the best, all the while getting certified to teach Acro Yoga yourself!! 

This 60hr yoga teacher training is a fun and playful journey AND it is one of our modules of Yoga Academy International’s 300hr yoga teacher training. Tarzan and the Yoga Academy team will guide you as you dive more profoundly in to your yoga practice, yoga teaching and sense of community. We want to give you a fun retreat-style experience interwoven with an upstanding yoga education. 

While this is an intensive training, you will also have ample opportunity to explore the gorgeous beaches and enjoy activities like surfing, hiking, horseback riding or just chill out in one of our 3 private pools or get a massage.

This training is also one of the elective modules of our 300hr yoga teaching certification. In taking this training you will gain hours toward your RYT-500hr registered with the international yoga alliance.

Please note that you do not have to be a certified yoga teacher to take this course, but we do expect you to have been practicing yoga regularly for at least 1 year before participating.

The training was fantastic, informative and so much fun! I enjoyed learning online for the first time and felt the energy all the way from Nicaragua! The Yin teacher training is exactly what every Yoga Teacher needs to take and have knowledge of, understanding anatomy deeper and Traditional Chinese Medicine, how it all ties in. I love it! Thank You!
