As an organization, we are very selective about the locations where we choose to host our teacher training programs.

Costa Rica is known as the happiest and most sustainable country on Earth, making it a potent place to complete your 200, 300 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings and YACEP Courses.


It’s important to be mindful of the impact we have on the places we visit. With that in mind, we always make an effort to collaborate with eco-friendly retreat centers that recognize and prioritize satiability.



Costa Rica Yoga Teacher Training?

During our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, we ask participants to embrace all aspects of the yogic lifestyle, such as observing a vegetarian diet, living free from the distractions of other substances (including alcohol and caffeine) and moving away from technology and unnecessary communication with the external world.


We ask for dedication, commitment, and surrender, as well as full immersion in our spiritual community for the duration of the training. In our experience, this commitment and immersion makes the work as impactful and powerful as possible.


We ask students to come with an open heart and mind, ready to see and to receive all that is out there.


Each day carries an intention, a spiritual lesson, that we explore throughout the day. We begin each morning with sunrise meditation, followed by a 90-minute asana practice and nourishing yogic breakfast. The days are spent learning yogic theories and healing practices through workshops, classes and group discussions.


During this time we discuss the fundamentals of yogic living, including yogic diet, anatomy, meditation, cleansing practices, pranayama, Ayurveda and the ancient wisdom of the Yoga Sutras. Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training also includes other methods of healing, calling on not just the physical and mental elements but also the more subtle forms of healing work such as earth medicines, energy healing and shamanic journeying.


We also share the fundamentals of intelligent sequencing and explore alignment and adjustment of poses in depth. Each evening we close with Satsang, our evening gathering, which may be meditation, kirtan chanting or sacred ceremony.


We share the Art of Teaching and Art of Touch, during which students will learn to teach two asana sequences, the Mystical Hatha Flow, a slow, meditative, Sivananda-based practice, and the Mystical Vinyasa Flow, a more intense, breath-synchronized, and fluid flow. Students will explore proper asana alignment and adjustment of poses in depth as well as the key to intelligent sequencing. This forms the solid foundation upon which students can step into their unique teaching ability as a teacher. Each evening we come together with Satsang, an evening gathering, which may be meditation, kirtan chanting or a sacred ceremony.
