Experience yoga at its depth
Investing in yourself with a Yoga Teacher Training Certification program is a life enriching experience even if you have no intention of teaching. Our 200 hour teacher training immersion in Costa Rica’s lush Blue Zone gives you three weeks to focus on your yoga practice with other curious, interesting people from around the world. It is a time for you to enjoy life while learning about the timeless tradition of yoga, it is an opportunity to cultivate true health and happiness while making new, like minded friends.
This Yoga Instructor Certification Program draws from many traditions and emphasizes more than the physical practice of Yoga. We will explore and experience classical Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the importance of ritual, the magic of mantra, philosophy from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, awareness of the subtle energies within and around us, and a deep connection to Nature as our teacher.
Our asana practice is Hatha Vinyasa, Vinyasa meaning the fluid and purposeful integration of breath and movement. You will gain an understanding of proper alignment for over 108 asana, sun salutations for all levels, creative and smart sequencing, core based strength exercises, enhancing postures with hands-on adjustments, how to incorporate music into a class, how to use props and how to work with special populations.
