The mystical 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 Rican mountains, ocean, spirits, and each other, you are  invited to come evolve on your spiritual and yogic path. 


In addition to the yoga training, you will have daily opportunities to learn and deepen your surfing practice.

 

The average swell running in the 3-5 foot range breaking over beautiful sand beaches, makes it suitable for all levels.


The nearest beach which is just 2 kilometers up the road will be your most common surf spot.. You will also experience the wonder of Stand Up Paddle boarding (‘SUPing’). 


Non-surfing nature lovers or beginner to expert surfers can all equally benefit from this seamless blending of two flow-based spiritual practices.


The price for this amazing teacher training includes the course material, accommodation and 3 delicious meals per day.

Location

Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Imagine a sea that radiates with wildlife and is almost perfect when it comes to shape, color and temperature. Located on the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Mal Pais offers tasty waves, creative kitchens and surfers galore. This surfing zone is known for its year round consistent waves, with the average swell running in the 3-5 foot range, breaking over beautiful sandy beaches.

Mal Pais has become one of Costa Rica's most life-affirming destinations full of Surf, SUP, and Yoga classes. The quiet surf village of Mal Pais provides a great opportunity for visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of more crowded destinations. It is an excellent place to enjoy the incredible natural surroundings in relative peace. Reflecting this relaxed attitude, the village of Mal Pais offers relatively few services with regards to tours. However, canopy tours are available and one can also take horseback rides along the beach.

Alternating between long stretches of sand and large patches of rock, the Mal Pais beach divides the ocean and the green jungle full of mischievous monkeys. The entire area unfurls along one coastal road that rambles from Santa Teresa in the north to Playa El Carmen, the area's commercial heartbeat, and then terminates in the quiet village of Mal País.

Juan Santa Maria International airport, in San Jose, is a 75-minute trip by land along the Pacific Coast to the Puntarenas ferry dock. From there, a 1.5-hour crossing of the Gulf of Nicoya to Paquera is meant to be a peaceful journey. Once you’ve soothed your soul with ocean breeze travel, you will need to journey through land again for 1.5 hours, passing through Tambor and Cobano, before arriving at your remote destination of Mal Pais. Flights from San Jose to Tambor are also available and are a short 40min drive from Tambor to Mal Pais.

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.
