(No availability) 5 Day Private Yin Yoga Retreat and Teacher Training in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limon

Vista Verde Guesthouse, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica

30 Hours YACEP Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica

This Yin yoga teacher training will enable you to create the Yin space, to dive deeper into that place of stillness and equanimity within yourself so it can enrich and balance your Yang lifestyle. You will channel the peaceful, compassionate, allowing presence that heals all imbalances by just “being with it”. You will learn how to allow yourself to feel your body and your emotions, to reopen shut down senses, and then to be able to let all the sensations and emotions flow and go instead of diving into the story of it and holding onto them.

All rooms have shared bathrooms and showers (with both hot and cold water) and come with comfortable orthopedic beds, fans, and mosquito nets.

Vista Verde also offers a beautiful yoga platform immersed in the green.



Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students will receive a certificate affiliated with Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program. Registration with Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program provides a globally recognized credential.

Yin yoga has a deeply healing effect by bringing your focus more inwards. With appropriate sequences you can balance the major imbalances in the body, the emotional blockages, the lack of energy and trust, and fears. All these can be nurtured through a Yin yoga practice. Yin yoga is based on traditional Chinese medicine and therefore intensively works with meridians, targeting your organs and balancing the five elements: water, wood, fire, Earth, and metal.

During this training, you will understand how Yin postures can be beneficial for you and how to teach them effectively to others. It’s a process of feeling deeply and re-patterning your system to its optimal potential.

The 30 hours Yin yoga teacher training is an intensive training course that will give you proper understanding of practicing and teaching Yin yoga. Yin yoga is rapidly becoming a popular yoga style, perhaps because the everyday Yang lifestyle is so exhausting that everyone naturally needs to bring their focus more inwards, going more "yinside".

The focus of Yin yoga is on the rejuvenation of the physical and mental body by maintaining a certain set of asanas for three to five minutes, and allowing to apply gentle tension and compression to your tissues. The practice can be an excellent bridge towards meditation or can be meditation in itself. Yin yoga teaches you to be with what is and when you let go of resistance, sometimes by releasing physical, mental, or emotional baggage, your life becomes more fluid and easy.

This course is a registered YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program) and you’ll receive a certificate on completion of the course.


  • Yin yoga asana practice: how, why, and when to practice this style safely and effectively
  • Yin yoga philosophy (Taoist principles, Yin versus Yang)
  • Yoga anatomy (connective tissues, compression versus tension, fascia structure)
  • Introduction to the Chinese meridians and organ health (practice sequences for the kidneys, liver, etc.)
  • Balancing the Yin style with a Yang practice to support structural strength and stability
  • The primary focus of breath in asana: length, depth, and direction (including Pranayama practice)
  • Mindfulness in asana and meditation practice
  • The art of teaching and how to sequence a Yin yoga class
  • The use of touch and hands-on adjustments
  • Skillful verbal communication

As final assessment, there will be a written test and a practical teaching experience where every student will create their own Yin yoga sequence.
