200-hour Tropical Teacher Training Immersion
Feb. 12 – Mar. 4, 2018 in the Matapalo, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Gathering at Casa Marmaris, a beautiful ocean front, open air Casa with large comfortable common rooms, decks and a dipping pool, we’ll be welcomed by the local Tico’s Desiree, Isaac, and staff who will ensure a comfortable and safe stay. After an opening dinner we will gather and relax at the Casa, share stories and get to know our new Yoga family. Plus, take a peek into what to expect for the weeks ahead. Later heading to sleep as the tropical breezes ull us into a deep and restful sleep.

200-Hour Yoga Certification.


 Start off your days sweetly awakened by sounds of howler monkeys and scarlet macquaws, showering under the deep fragrant jungle foliage. We will walk awaken to the sunrise over the ocean to have tea and exotic fruit before bathing in a 2-hour Yoga practice, including pranayama meditation and asana. Afterwards we meet for a breakfast feast by the local staff. All ingredients are fresh, grown from local farms and prepared with love.

Late morning we will dive deep into Yoga studies by breaking down asana, learning cueing, modification, alignment and hands on assists for a myriad of poses. Then we each practice our teaching skills and receive constructive feedback from our Yoga teachers and guides.
. After an amazingly nourishing lunch, there’s a 2-hour break to ride the surf, swim in the turquoise ocean, collect shells, lounge in hammocks, sunbathe, swim in our dipping pool or explore jungle trails to hidden waterfalls!

Late afternoons we gather for lectures, covering topics that take us into the rich roots and philosophy of Yoga, including anatomy, history, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, Ayurveda, sequencing, Karma yoga, business of Yoga and more. If we feel like a late afternoon practice, we’ll slide back to the yoga deck, sun-kissed perhaps, for a restorative practice, Yoga nidra (sleepless sleep), and maybe some bonding, sharing, journaling…whatever comes our way, we’ll stay connected in the flow.

 A Costa Rican dinner is served as the sun goes down. Afterwards, we can explore the trails with our flashlights as we unwind into the dark calm of the jungle. Certain evenings we will gather for special rituals including fire ceremonies, writing, drumming and Trance Dance. Other nights you might choose an evening beach walk in the darkness gazing at stars or head to the local bar (Martina’s) to catch up with the locals and join the dance party or maybe melt into bed to be lulled to sleep by the absolute calm of the sea and jungle life….catching up on the dreams you’ve been missing out on.
