Program

The curriculum has been sourced from decades of study and experience in the field of yoga, yoga therapy, Ayurveda, somatics, human potential lineages, and other subtle body healing approaches. It is a blend of traditional yoga, Ayurvedic philosophy, trauma-informed yoga knowledge, therapeutic physical and cognitive practices, and Peace Retreat Costa Rica's personal extensive experience with instigating and sustaining deep healing on all levels - physical, emotional, and cognitive.

Students will learn the concepts, as well as the practical therapeutic application of a wide range of practices, techniques, and theories, including:

  • traditional yoga poses and various modifications of those poses with props
  • pranayama for particular outcomes
  • how to guide meditation, prana vidya techniques, yoga Nidra, and other subtle body practices
  • cognitive awareness and emotional intelligence in relation to disease and trauma
  • therapeutic Ayurvedic physiology, functional yoga therapy, and somatic movement

The above practices and tools will provide students with the necessary skills for teaching a therapeutic yoga class in a group setting, implementing a customized yoga protocol in a private setting, and/or offering viable therapeutic options and practices to clients within a professional health setting.

What the training will cover

  • A basic understanding of the six stages of disease, the body’s response to stress, and the complex response to trauma
  • The principles of self-regulation, breathing techniques, classical pranayama practices, therapeutic strategies to use to instigate the desired outcome when individuals are dysregulated; effectively empowering individuals to take ownership of their health and wellbeing
  • Yoga Nidra, somatics, and subtle body essentials (emotional), effective use of props to help support individuals with various abilities (physical), and effective language that supports transforming limiting beliefs into life-affirming thought patterns (cognitive)
  • The neuroscience behind these therapeutic models
  • Hands-on practical skills to execute, facilitate, and develop a private yoga session and customized protocol
  • Cognitive awareness and emotional intelligence in relation to disease and trauma
  • Therapeutic Ayurvedic physiology, functional yoga therapy, and somatic movement

Typical daily schedule

The schedule supports cultivating a steady and sustainable daily practice that students are able to integrate into their lives after the training; continuing the growth process towards Swastha (optimal health on all levels). A typical day in training is as follows:

  • 06:00 - 07:00 Breakfast
  • 07:00 Pranayama (kriyas), meditation, reflection
