2 Days left to register for the discounted price! The Sonic Yoga Tropical Teacher Training Immersion will begin as you land in the Tropical Paradise of Matapalo. An off the grid nirvana at the edge of the largest National Park on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. On Feb. 11, We will all gather at Tumba de Las Holas a beautiful open air case with large comfortable common rooms, decks and dipping pool. We will be welcomed by the local Tico’s Felipe and staff who will ensure our stay is comfortable and safe. After an opening dinner we will all gather to connect and take a peek into what to expect for the weeks ahead. We will have some time to relax at the Casa share stories and get to know our new Yoga family. As we head off to sleep, the tropical breezes will await us to lull us into a deep and restful sleep. On February 12, we’ll all be sweetly awakened by sounds of howler monkeys and macquaws, showering under the deep fragrant jungle foliage, walking down shaded trails to the casa grande for tea and exotic fruit before bathing in a 2 hr. sadhana practice, including pranayama meditation and asana to start off our days. From there we’ll join up again for a feast of breakfast offered by the Tumba de Las Holas cuilinary staff. All l fresh ingredients grown from local farms and prepared with love. The late morning we will dive into our deep study of Yoga, we will spend these sessions breaking down asana learning the cueing, modification, alignment & hands on assists for a myriad of poses. Then we will all have the chance to practice our teaching skills and receive constructive feedback from the teachers. Each day we will have a long 3 hour break where after an amazingly nourishing lunch feast, we can head off for the surf, swim in the turquoise ocean, collect shells, lounge in hammocks, sunbathe and swim in our dipping pool, explore the jungle trails leading to hidden waterfalls! Go on adventure tours to swim or kayak with dolphins and amazing sea life. In late afternoon we will gather for lectures, covering topics that take us into the rich roots & philosophy of Yoga. We will study anatomy, history, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, Ayurveda, sequencing, Karma yoga, business of Yoga and more. If we feel like another late afternoon practice, then 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 the tropical breezes blow our way…we’ll stay connected in the flow. Certain evenings we will gather for special rituals including fire ceremonies, writing, drumming and Trance Dance. Each evening a final dinner feast will be served as the sun goes down and we explore the trails with our flashlights or headlamps on….and start to unwind into the dark calm of the jungles. you might choose an evening beach walk in the absolute pitch darkness and a torch (flashlight) to the local bar (martina’s) to catch up with the local going-on’s or melt into your mosquito netted 4 post bed as you are lulled to sleep by the absolute calm of the jungles….catching up on the dreams you’ve been missing out on for the last few months of doing. This is a magical opportunity to unplug, to be in the flow of the mystery of your life and to earn your Yoga Teacher Certification all at the same time. We are looking forward to guiding you into this deep life changing transformative experience. If you want to have some idea of our schedule…here you go….please be open to some fluctuations of this flow and know that we will do our best to honor your personal rhythms as well as the collective energy and whatever the jungle brings each day. $4500 if you register by 12/15/11, $4750 thereafter. $1000 deposit required.
