Bodhi Tree Yoga Teacher Training
in Partnership with iLa Yoga®
March 16th to April 6th 2024 / November 2nd to 23rd 2024
Step into the inquiry of yoga with us at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica. Study alongside students from around the world as we embark on a journey through this 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher-training program.
Our three-week immersive program is designed to empower your journey through the study of yoga. Classroom sessions are held in a variety of our beautiful shalas on the Bodhi Tree ground. Morning practice, mid-day lectures, practical application, evening discussion, beach meditation, small group presentations, and peer teaching sessions bring a cohesive and intentional structure and flow to our program. Finding and sharing your truth requires tapping into the innate teacher within.
This training delivers tools to access that truth by laying the foundation of technically sound practice, layered with the invaluable ability to tune into the inquiry of being. This approach provides more than the memorization of cues into a standardized flow, rather, it supports the ability to teach from a place of inner truth and wisdom. Join us for this unforgettable, transformational experience in Costa Rica.
Most days will consist of a morning Vinyasa practice, lecture, practicum, and practice teach elements. Other elements that are woven into the program include; beach yoga and meditation, restorative and yin yoga, self-study, small group projects and presentations, sensory awareness methods, and communication techniques.
Below is a sample schedule of what to expect each day, however there are a few shorter days scheduled for rest, relaxation and time for you! These days can be used to explore the beach, enjoy the spa, or just relax by the pool. Our opening ceremony takes place Saturday evening, and graduation will take place the last Friday at 5pm. Our graduation ceremony is open to family and friends you’d like to invite.
