Week 1 of our 200hr yoga teacher training – June 2017

We are already one week into this summer’s 200hr yoga teacher training in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. At Yoga Academy International, we are raising the standard of education of yoga teacher training. We’re committed to providing our students with the best yoga teacher training out there!

We start our days with morning flow and beach meditation. What better place to do so than here in paradise? Our students learn yoga and alignment theory, along with practice teaching sessions, workshops and communication skills. We wrap up the day with uplifting evening satsang. Our students are working hard and get to indulge in well-deserved, nourishing meals throughout our intensive training. Still, we always make sure there is enough time to enjoy the beach!

Check out what’s been going down, and we are just getting started!
