Between the proximity to the ocean, monkeys, toucans, butterflies, and the surrounding flora, immerse yourself into what you were always meant for.
Above and beyond a teacher training, this is a space to define your true beauty, your inner warrior, your powerful being and to manifest your ultimate personal strength of mind, body, and spirit. This is a journey of transformation towards true authenticity and a more full version of yourself.
Free yourself to fully immerse into the experience that entails not only the next step on your journey, but also build a deeper connection with tribe.

We will be touching on permaculture, healthy balancing cuisine, wildlife, and weaving philosophy into real-world practice. Change your life through a deeper understanding of yoga practices, along with alignment, sequencing and the ability to teach from experience. Reestablish the divine essence through purity and simply breathing into the unique existence that you were called for.
Develop a community surrounding insight, and powerful personal growth. When we work together as one, we truly thrive and let our lives flourish through our highest potential. Develop your already blooming skillsets as a yoga teacher and find peace within your 300hr yoga teacher training. Make the path more accessible to your further understanding of yoga and life practices while working towards becoming more whole, balancing your chakras, and learning to hold sacred space.
Be the example and the change you would like to see in our surrounding world, through bettering yourself in pursuit of growth. This advanced training is available to those of you who have successfully completed the 200hr foundational yoga teacher training and are looking to enrich the experience of practicing yoga students along with your own personal life. What are you waiting for, your destiny is calling upon you to take the next steps on your journey of transformation.
