This transformational yoga teacher training curriculum is influenced around Peruvian Shamanism, providing students with a unique and spiritually driven course that goes beyond just a certification. 

Called by the energy of the Costa Rica ocean, mountains, spirits, and each other, we invite you to come evolve on your spiritual and yogic path.

The course is designed to provide students with tools to share the wisdom of yoga with others, and to look at their own lives from a spiritual perspective. 

Each training holds a unique energy and forms a tribe that is there to guide you, as you pick and choose what you would like to grow in your world and what you would like to leave behind on your path.


This training provides you an incredible experience, located at an eclectic yet intimate eco friendly retreat center that is nestled between the pristine beaches and the tropical rainforest in the wild of Costa Rica.

Breathe in the beauty of nature and purity of increased oxygen from the rainforest. Delight in the flowers, the birds, the monkeys and the beauty of your own soul!

The 200-Hour Training is inclusive of 20 nights accommodation, the course fee and manual, and daily vegetarian meals.

Location

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

With the Pacific Ocean to the west and the emerald waters of the Gulf to the east, the area is shared equally between residents and the wonderful wildlife and nature; the peninsula is a primitive paradise of rain forest, empty beaches, and backwater settlements.

Located on the eastern coast of Osa is this close-knit Tico community of Puerto Jimenez. From Puerto Jiménez, you can explore just about everything there is to offer, even take a ferry across the Gulf to the colourful city of Golfito. 

This laidback town is one of the main gateways to the beautiful Corcovado National Park. You can trek your way through the gorgeous and diverse wildlife that the park has to offer. Catch a glimpse of the rare and beautiful Scarlet Macaws as they fly overhead and spot up to 4 different monkey species and many brightly colored birds.

If you like more adventurous activities, hiking, rappelling, mountain biking and kayaking tours are on hand. There is also a lovely remote village of Cabo Matapalo, which is famous in the region for its awesome surf breaks.

To go to Puerto Jimenez, you can take the bus from San José. There is also a small airport in Puerto Jimenez that connects daily to San Jose International airport.

Food

Delight in three delicious vegetarian meals per day in a tranquil atmosphere in open-air settings along the poolside and tropical gardens. Boasting with flavor and color, the breakfast offers fruits, natural juices, yoghurt with granola, eggs, and the typical local breakfast, gallo pinto.

With an emphasis on using local and organic ingredients, your tastebuds will dance authentically while you gaze upon sweeping ocean views and serene sunsets.
