Training overview

The Kula Collective 200-hour training provides deep immersion in the practice of yoga - living, learning, and embracing all aspects of yoga as a lifestyle and deepening the connection to oneself and the earth through the wisdom of shamanic practices. These traditions, designed to grant us access to the infinite wisdom we carry within ourselves, are smoothly blended together to form a holistic offering rooted in the principle of yoga as union, a channel for connection to the divine.

The Kula Collective 200-hour yoga teacher training provides you with concrete tools and clear strategies to live your life with passion and purpose.

Journey Through the Three Worlds of the Chakana

Each of Kula Collective's training programs has been carefully designed to incorporate 200 intensive hours using the Kula Collective signature structure of the Chakana. The Andean Cross allows a transformative journey through the lower, middle, and upper worlds of this ancient tradition, allowing you to explore the many levels of your being.

Explore: Lower World

Beginning with the Lower World, you explore your unconscious and physical abilities and limitations, recognizing and breaking through self-created boundaries. By releasing what no longer serves you, you create more space in the body and mind through the cultivation of awareness and the understanding of the roots of yoga, anatomy, foundational practices and selfless service.

Empower: Middle World

In the Middle World you empower, discovering more of who you are, through experiencing elemental awareness and self-inquiry, allowing you to embody the teachings and live to your full potential. After teaching your first full yoga class, you will dive deep into the work of Patanjali's Ashtanga (8 limbs) philosophy, applied anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, Ayurveda, and chakras, deepening understanding of our true nature and evoking a strong love for the self and each other.

Expand: Upper World

From your work in the Lower and Middle worlds, you experience a sense of freedom in the Upper World as you expand, shifting from gross to more subtle realms of consciousness, letting you step into your radiant power. With topics such as complementary holistic health practices, yoga sutras in-depth, and the profession of yoga, you close your training with a clear personal practice and teaching plan, fueled with inspiration to grow your gifts and manifest your dreams.

Yoga Style

Kula Collective training draws from a broad foundational understanding of the vast tradition that is this 5000-year-old approach to self-realization. They thread the four traditional paths throughout your training programs, encouraging a holistic and experiential approach to practice and teaching.

They also weave together diverse understandings of various wisdom cultures and infuse a shamanic connection to the Earth and her elements. In regards to asana practice, the ‘Kula Flow’ is a slow Vinyasa-based sequence with an emphasis on mindfulness, breath, meditation, and alignment. Since Vinyasa is not derived from any one lineage, as a collective they have come up with a creative sequence rooted in multiple traditions. The Kula Flow is has roots in Ashtanga, Sivananda, Kundalini, Hatha, and Iyengar. The intention of the flow is to give students an opportunity to access the stillness of the mind, preparing the body for meditation; the foundation of yoga. As the program progresses, variations on the Kula Flow will be offered for different levels of experience.

The first round of teaching will be the Kula Flow; the second round will be a beginners or intermediate level class where students are required to create and sequence their own class holistically around a theme of their choice and will be mentored throughout this process

Preparing you to be a yoga teacher

Kula Collective takes great pride in preparing students to become teachers. Teaching yoga is an art form. It is a process of intimacy; one that asks for deep movement within both giver and receiver: through love, authenticity, attention, and connection. There are many ways in which yoga can be shared, but here at Kula Collective, they believe that the fundamental principle that links all of the yoga teachings is Connection; the concept that in order to truly help another being to find oneness, you must yourself be a channel to that oneness for your students.

The YTT’s will help you to find this connection within, in order to share your light with others, helping to awaken and inspire all those around you. You will be given a broad foundation of all areas necessary to give you the confidence, skills, and wisdom to share this profound healing practice.

Location

The Tierra de Suenos Lodge & Wellness Center is located in Playa Chiquita, 6 kilometers from the lively surf town Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. The retreat is a serene and lush jungle hideaway on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, sitting between the pristine coral beaches of Playa Chiquita and the spectacular rainforest. Tierra de Sueños is a leader of ecotourism, with 7 gorgeous hardwood Caribbean-style bungalows set into the lush nature scape, each with a different theme expressed in the hand-carved wood, tile mosaics, painted murals, and artistic details.

With a family-type atmosphere amidst a rich, melting pot regional culture combining Latin, Afro, and International threads, the Puerto Viejo experience is a unique one, offering beauty and tranquility enriched with the excitement of a renowned surf town. The south Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is a magical combination of age-old rainforest and tropical beach. Its one sleepy main road connects small clusters of delicious restaurants and coconut stands, with easy walks beside the waves and plenty of small coves to jump into the water.

Nature is stunning here, with monkeys, sloths, toucans, butterflies, and parrots being a part of everyday life. As part of the retreat, you will enjoy guided nature walks, sunset meditations, beach activities, and immersion in the jungle Yoga Shala. In your free time, you can snorkel, kayak, ride bikes, hike, horseback ride, visit the Jaguar Rescue Center, shop, and much more.
