I liked that the program was only 2 weeks long, everything was compact and deliberate. This property is beautiful, very well kept by amazing staff and volunteers. The program offers so much more than just a YTT. The human potential aspect of the training is so beneficial in all areas of my life. I learnt so much about myself and my life going forward as a yoga teacher. Everything and everyone has been so amazing during my time here. This location is truly paridise, I'm in love with Costa Rica!!
It's nice to stay a couple days after the training to really hit up the beach. The days are full so there's not much down time. Playa Negra is one of the most beautiful beaches I've visited and you should really spend a day there and catch the sunset.

Great program for those willing to dive deep into yoga, teaching, and personal development.

out of 13h training a day we only did like 10% asana practice. The rest of the time we had to listen a lot about personal development (not anatomy or something really related to yoga) and about the power of sharing our thoughts to a community. Also we were Kind of forced to share personal thoughts and experiences otherwise the teacher wanted to know why you don't participate. It was more like a psychotherapy than a yoga teacher training. People were crying a lot and the mood was really depressing (nothing you want to experience in your Holidays) I left after day two and I had to leave within two hours!! They didn't even give me time to figure out what to do now as I was on my own. Also I did not get any refund! not even for the accommodation or the food. Therefore I can not recommend this place and teacher training.
