Nalu Nosara

This retreat center is composed of luxury villas and a breathtaking yoga studio designed by world-renown architect Benjamin Saxe, which has been featured in Dwell Magazine, Wallpaper, and many other prominent publications. Nalu is a Hawaiian word meaning "wave," or to go with the flow. It is with this intention that this contemporary oasis was built lovingly with impeccable attention to detail.

Each villa has its own private saltwater pool, spa bathroom, living or dining quarters and more. Nalu is situated in Nosara, Costa Rica, known for some of the most beautiful beaches and beautiful surf in the entire country. Say hello to howler monkeys and iguanas as you stroll through this luxury jungle paradise, and practice in the gorgeous 1200 square foot open-air studio.

Nosara Verde

Nosara Verde is an oasis of artfully-designed luxury villas directly across the street from Nalu Studio, where adventure and relaxation await. These gorgeous, massive villas have their own pool, hardwood floors, modern kitchens, air-conditioning, outdoor patios, hammocks, and swings. Nosara Verde's large trees allow for daily visits from monkeys, various bird species, iguanas and other tropical beauties. You will find yourself relaxing pool-side both day and night, enjoying the sound of the waves, and the bright stars at night. Discover what Pura Vida is all about!

Program

Certification

This 200 hours yoga teacher training is fully - accredited by the Yoga Alliance

Whether you are interested in teaching your loved ones, earning an income as a yoga instructor, or solely being called to deepen your practice, you are welcomed to join this incredible journey. Your yoga teacher training in Costa Rica progresses over 18 days by a map of the chakras, starting at the root and ending with the crown.

During the root segment, students will ground their intentions for teaching or practice, and learn the vast history of yoga from the Vedas through the Upanishads, Buddhism, yoga sutras, Bhakti traditions, Tantric lineages, and contemporary yoga schools. In the sacral chakra, you will uncover the countless layers of the subtle body, learn the principles of Ayurveda, gain an overview of classical Tantra, and practice yoga Nidra. As you progress through the navel chakra, you will explore yoga's connection with power, fire, and introduce Lakshmi practice and the business of yoga.

In the heart you encounter the devotional path of Bhakti (devotional) yoga, as well as ceremony, prayer, and healing. You will connect in nature, and receive teachings on the heart of your practice. You share in men's and women's circles as a step in your process of uniting energies, where you also honor identifying with a group other than your assigned-at-birth gender and exploring the group you feel called to.

Moving upwards into the throat chakra, students will learn about Kashmir Shaivism and the Sanskrit language, pronunciation, principles of chanting, and a wealth of mantra and deity practices. Progressing to the third eye, the training becomes increasingly more subtle, as you encounter an array of yogic meditations, explore yogic Buddhism, and turn inward in silence. Culminating in the crown, trainees will receive Kundalini awakening practices, learn Shakti mantra, yogic ritual, and receive an initiation into the practice.

Each of your retreat days will also include a thorough overview of the anatomy / physiology of yoga - Asana (postures), a comprehensive outlook on teaching methodology, an intensive dissection of major and minor poses, workshops on adjustments / alignment, and plenty of time for practice teaching. Not to mention, you will also have time to be alone in nature, reflect, swim, stargaze, and relax inquietude.

For those looking to teach, this yoga teacher training in Costa Rica will provide a vast, comprehensive tool-kit for teaching physical postures, breathing techniques, alignment, adjustments, as well as pranayama, mantra, meditation, and more. The principles you will be instructed in, can be applied to any style of yoga you feel compelled to offer.

For students looking to deepen their understanding, this will be a dynamic expansion of both knowledge and practice. A sincere exploration of what it means to truly practice yoga.

Shivakali yoga

You will be taught alignment-based "Vinyasa flow" practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation, and pranayama. Your practice focuses on present-centered awareness, serving first to awaken the body and break-up stuck energy, and then to soften the mind and nurture your inner being. Uniting the solar and lunar aspects of practice, you will find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.
