Currently both Costa Rica and Nicaragua are open for tourists from all countries of the world (Hooray!!) You WILL be required to show a negative PCR (Covid test) taken no earlier than 72-hours before traveling in order to enter Nicaragua.


Because of the above guidelines, it is safe to assume that anyone arriving to our training is COVID free. That being said, even after testing negative there may still be a 5-day incubation period for the virus. So we will do the following:

  • Provide hand sanitizer at strategic locations and require sanitizing before and after every meal as well as before and after every class.
  • Students will not share mats or props
  • There will be no physical adjustments during this training
  • We have plenty of space for social distancing and ALL classes take place outside! 
  • Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 after arrival will be required to self-isolate for 14 days at his/her own expense. This means staying in a private room at the retreat centre or another hotel for 14-days. You will not be permitted at meals but meals will be brought to your room and left outside. You may still join the training since all classes take place outside, in open air spaces, but will be required to wear a mask in all classes be socially distanced from the group at a minimum of 2 meters.

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!
