This training is set in the incredible El Sabanero Eco Lodge, which has an indoor and out door yoga shala and is situated on a hillside in Cañafistula near Tamarindo overlooking the Cañafistula valley with beautiful views from all Chalets
This 26 day training you will take your practice to the next level, relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings, learn how to teach yoga and have the opportunity to enjoy local activities on your 3 days off.
We advise 2 years practice before embarking on a Yoga TTC. This is enough time to give students a firm foundation for the work involved on a TTC and also gives people a base to reach the level expected for graduation. Sometimes people achieve this foundation after a year or so of practice; there are always exceptions, but as a general, we recommend 2 years.
On this training you can expect to :
Develop your asana practice and your understanding of your body through anatomy and alignment studies.
Develop your individual teaching voice, as an expression of your true self and learn how to teach yoga and share the gifts it has to offer safely and confidently.
Learn how to teach both Vinyasa style Yoga.
Delve into the depths of subtle anatomy, learn healing meditations, myofascial release and energy balancing work.
Learn the gift of meditation.
Create deeper spiritual understanding in a life-connecting, non-dogmatic way.
Learn Ayurveda and the holistic aspects of the practice.
Learn how diet can help your practice, your health and your life.
Learn the business side of yoga and how to operate as a teacher ethically and effectively.
You can also expect to work hard with the support of a group that wishes to evolve through the path of yoga like yourself. You will be challenged to journey deeper within, to move beyond your self-limiting beliefs and stories that hold you back from moving forward with your intentions and dreams. This is a physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually demanding experience. It is both intense and wonderful. Expect to bend, sweat, ache, collapse, stand up, strengthen, open, cry and giggle. Expect also to move deeper into relationship with the core nature of who you are, to connect with your authentic self and to learn how to spread the teachings of yoga from that place.

It is best to buy the books as soon as possible to start your reading before the TTC begins. It is not a pre-requisite to pre-read books before the TTC, but during the TTC, you will be learning a lot of new vocabulary, whether it is anatomy, alignment, sanskrit etc. so the sooner you get started the better. Our advice is to start with The Art of Teaching Yoga Manual and the Anatomy Books. You do need to bring the required books with you and they should be in English.
