About this trip

Swastha is the sanskrit word that means to be firmly rooted and fully established in oneself, with balanced health on all levels of our Being 

The Human Journey program is intended to be empowering, enlightening, and will take you to a new growing edge within your practice, teaching, and in life. 

It’s specifically designed to explore the intricacies of relationship. We explore both the complexity and the reward of being in relationship, as well as the necessity of being skilled in them. Why? Because relationships give us access to the very things that we say we want in life. They are the mirror reflection to our deepest inner workings, which gives us the precious insight and feedback that we need in order to grow. Through the art of teaching and daily practice, you’ll develop the skills necessary to thrive in relationships. Seeing your behavior through the reflection of another can be challenging at times and will require courage, commitment, and trust. The result is a life-changing experience.

We’ll also explore the cycle of dis-ease - the very thing that undermines relationship - and you’ll learn how to break up patterns in order to get to a place of balance and ease instead. These skills are paramount in order to be an effective leader and yoga teacher.

Included: 200 hours of training with some of the most experienced trainers in the field, invaluable training manual, 3 delicious meals per day, and double shared accommodations. Accommodation single upgrade and dorm options available.

Not Included: Flight to/from Costa Rica, airport shuttle transportation to/from Peace Retreat.

Cancellation Policy: Deposits will reserve your spot in the training and are strictly non-refundable and non-transferrable at any time. Refunds will not be issued, for any reason, 90 days or less before training start date and can only be applied to a future Swastha Yoga program within one year of cancellation date. In the unlikely event that Swastha Yoga needs to cancel a program, participants will be refunded the full tuition.

Our goal is to inspire people around the globe to have deep and meaningful practices both on and off the mat, to understand what it takes to be a truly powerful and authentic leader, and to use words and actions that support and nurture a healthy relationship to oneself and to others...so that our collective as yoga students, teachers, and humans will thrive - that is Swastha! Together we, Kevin McQuillan and Serena Arora, have taught, led, shared and witnessed the beautiful process of yoga in communities around the world for over 35 years and we are excited to build a community of teachers, practitioners, and leaders who are equally as committed to sharing, contributing, learning and being well together. We invite you here to our home in Costa Rica, on the road, and to call us into your own community to support growth and possibility - wherever you are in the world!

Serena and Kevin are amazingly passionate teachers! I left this teacher training program with so much more then a 200 hour yoga teaching certification. Through their program, which was well planned, I became a better person which in turn will make me a great teacher! I returned home inspired and excited to use these skills that I was given. I look forward to return next year for additional training! Thank you Kevin and Serena for your dedication to making this world a better place to live!
Human Journey YTT was the most incredible experience I have ever had! The combination of yoga training and self discovery was more than I could have hoped for. Kevin and Serena truly have a gift and I feel blessed to have been apart of this experience. Everything from the people, facility (Peace Retreat), the nutrition, and the education was on point. The experience leaves me at a loss for words. I highly recommend any one who is able to attend this experience!!! Much love!
This was an absolutely amazing experience. I felt like this program was specifically tailored to meet my needs and challenge me to reach the intentions I set going in.
Professionalism and attention, great attention, was what I felt in this workshop. I left with a new perspective and a wakeup to myself. I recommend anyone looking for growth and discovery in their lives.
This was an important workshop. Made me think about things long hidden that I needed to address and remove. I did! Important also to hear that many others were in the same situation. Kevin and Serena are wonderful moderators!
