The inner critic far too often takes the steering wheel.
Learn how to tap into the wisdom of your inner teacher.
Imagine what it would feel like to have the time and space to replenish your spirit and liberate your soul with no responsibilities other than your own well-being.
Are you ready to transform, to embody what it feels like to be healthy, vibrant, and aligned?
If you have been looking for a yoga teacher training that encourages personal growth and creates a safe sacred space in a stunning location with a loving community, we welcome you to apply.
The foundation of this course is based on Hatha and Tantra philosophies and will explore the many other facets of the Yoga practice. Through meditation, conscious communication, awareness practices and physical movement we will gracefully transform the energies.
There is nothing more powerful than an immersive experience and the relationships you build are priceless. We understand how important ongoing support and community connection is even after the training is complete. This is one of the features that makes our training so unique. We have created an online Foundation Course for you to plug into, stay connected, and continue growing. This allows us to not only support you within the magical jungle of Costa Rica but also as you weave your new teachings into daily life.
It can be overwhelming to integrate all that you have learned in the training once you are back home and Yoga is a lifelong journey after all! Included with your training you will gain access to our online Foundation course which includes reference material, a deeper look at anatomy, an asana guide, powerful awareness practices, a system to help develop a steady daily practice, community support, monthly workshops, and mentorship calls.
