HOW IT WORKS
There are 5 Modules in our 5 week, 300 hour format. On week 6, we begin the optional Pre-Natal Add on. The Pre-Natal section of the program will be taught by our collaborative partner, Soul Rebel Rising. Your Pre-Natal certificate will be in their name. You can also opt to do the Pre-Natal portion ONLY.
Please note that you do NOT need to be an RYT 200 to participate in the Pre-Natal portion of this program. Other women's health professionals are also welcome. However, you will only be able to register as a RPYT with the Yoga Alliance if you have completed a Registered 200 hour training.
*Price does not include housing. Most of our students spend between $400 - $800 on shared food and accommodation for the program. We are happy to provide support in your housing search and connect you with other students looking to share via our Facebook Housing Group. Most students book via searching Puerto Viejo de Talamanca on Airbnb.
You will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica (airport code SJO). We start at 10am on the first Sunday of the program. For more information on how to arrive to Puerto Viejo, visit here.
For the 300 hour program, you need to have graduated from a Registered Yoga School (RYS) at the 200 hour level. If you did not graduate from Passion Yoga School, you will be required to score at least an 80% on our 200 Hour Final Exam upon arrival. We will provide you with the manual and a copy of the test upon placing your non-refundable deposit. You will have all of the information and time you need to prepare for the test. This allows us to ensure a base line of knowledge and respect the depth and quality of instruction for our Passion Yoga School 200 hour graduates. You will take the test at 8am on the first day of the program.
For the Pre-Natal Program, you are not required to have completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training to participate.
Courses will be held at the Maha Shakti Center, a healer's cooperative and empowerment center in Cocles, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. It is about a 3 minute walk from Caribbeans, a local cafe on the main road.
A non-refundable 30% deposit holds your place in the program, and the remaining is due 30 days before the program start date. All payment is processed via credit or debit card on our secure online server.
NOTE: This is an extremely unique format, and we anticipate to sell out quickly. Now is the time to begin the application process if you are serious about joining us in 2017 for this gathering.
It is important to mention that our Teacher Training and Self Empowerment Courses are not for everyone. We see the journey through Yoga as a sacred path towards more enlightened living. Our programs involve deep spiritual inquiry, profound philosophical understanding, and direct confrontation with and integration of our shadow self. The jungles of Costa Rica bring incredible wildlife, breathtaking moments of unity with nature, as well as dirty feet and sometimes uncomfortable heat. It is an opportunity to unify yourself with our sacred Mother, and this brings many lessons in humility. Not everyone is ready for that journey.
If you are not open to honoring Yoga as your spiritual journey to Source, our program may not be for you. If you are not willing to be in the fire for the sake of transformation, our program may not be for you. If you are not willing to be fully immersed in the bio-diverse and humid climate of our wild tropical rain forest, our program may not be for you.
