This Institute for Yoga and Wellness is a registered yoga school and a continuing education provider through the Yoga Alliance. It is the result of the shared vision of Janel Schullo and Horace Usry. Janel and Horace met in the Pacific Coast jungle of Costa Rica in 2013. Both came to teach in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. They soon became close friends and then partners. They shared their visions for their own yoga school during walks on the Pacific Coast at sunset and during long soaks in the beautiful tropical tide pools. They arrived in Costa Rica from two tautly different backgrounds. Janel had spent over twenty years in a cloistered Catholic monastery as a Nun in Connecticut. Horace had spent over twenty years in Investment Banking in several cities in the US and London. Both became ardent practitioners of yoga and students of yoga philosophy. Their walks and talks became the genesis of the the Institute for Yoga & Wellness.
This yoga center offers 200-hour and 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certifications and yoga continuing education for yoga teachers and practitioners in Nosara, Costa Rica, and around the world. They are committed to providing a safe, sacred and nurturing environment that allows each participant to cultivate and improve their own yoga and teaching style. They provide an environment that sparks personal growth relative to the Self, others and a personal Higher Power. Each participant is a blessing to the program, contributing their own unique individual expression and creativity. All the graduates are uniquely qualified to share their own personal teaching styles upon graduation through yoga asana classes and their own developed spiritual wisdom.
The Institute for Yoga and Wellness is located on Playa Guoines in the town of Nosara on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The property features an expansive canopy-level vaulted ceiling yoga studio, two kitchens and a private pool. They are a two hour drive from Liberia International Airport (LIR) and a four to five hour drive from the capital city of San Jose (SJO). You may also fly from San Jose (SJO) or Liberia (LIR) to Nosara on Nature Air or Sansa. The team would be glad to arrange airport transfers or help with your travel arrangements.
