Still Have Questions? More Answers Here
Is this a Yoga Alliance registered program?
Yes. Passion Yoga School is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) for the 200 Hour, 300 Hour, and 85 Hour Pre-Natal levels. We are also Continued Education Providers, and this course counts as 40 hours towards continued education. You will be a Certified SoulWorker with Passion Yoga School + SoulWork.
What is the general schedule?
Please see the specific program page for details on the schedule. You should plan to be fully available for the duration of the course.
Who typically comes to your programs?
We welcome all shapes, sizes, races, sexes, genders, religions, and orientations to our programs. That being said, many of our students are women from the ages of 20 - 35 who are deeply called to step more fully into themselves and expand their professional capacity as a social leader. We have formed a strong sisterhood, and we welcome brothers into our spiritual family with open arms.
How do I get to you? Where exactly are you located?
We’re located on the Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica in a small town called Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. The best way to get to us is to fly into Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) and take a shuttle to your accommodation reserved for the training. We recommend booking Caribe Shuttle for your transportation. Be sure to check their departure schedules before you book your flight. Their shuttles leave Denny’s Restaurant twice a day, which is about 5 minutes away from the airport by taxi.
Can I bring my children?
We are unable to host children at Finca Armonia due to the all inclusive, intensive format.
Where should I stay during, before or after the program?
When you register, you receive a Welcome Packet with tons of great, budget-specific information on where to stay both in San Jose or Puerto Viejo before or after your intensive program.
What can I expect in terms of weather?
We are blessed to live in complete harmony with nature and experience ALL of her wild cycles (possibly in one day) here in the Caribbean. You can expect to be blessed by the radiant Caribbean sun and the intense Caribbean rain that beats down on the jungle canopy. Honoring Mother Nature in all her forms is an integral part of our practice here at Passion Yoga School.
What should I bring with me?
Once you place your deposit, you will receive a detailed list of items to bring that are required for the course. Two weeks before the course begins, you will receive a packing list and helpful travel information about your upcoming trip.
What about internet access?
No WiFi is available.
What are the expectations around daily discipline?
The boundaries and expectations for our programs will be outlined on the first day of class. They include a vegetarian diet, abstinence, periods of silence, and more. We call our programs intensives for a reason. We go deep. Be ready to show up for yourself and your practice every day to fully experience everything the program has to offer.
How much experience in yoga should I have before doing the course?
We ask that all students come with at least a year of practice. Our tradition is unique and we will focus on providing pristine education and building a powerful foundation that incorporates asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, sequencing techniques, and more.
We further recommend that you practice asana and begin a meditation routine a month before the training. This will assure that you’re fully in your practice and will allow you to reap the benefits of daily sadhana (spiritual practice).
How can I prepare for the training?
We recommend that a month before the program begins, you commit to a daily asana practice of at least 1 hour, and a 20-minute meditation practice. This is not essential, but this routine will allow you to gain the most out of our intensives. You can also take Adi Shakti’s 7 Days to Bliss eRetreat, and you will get immediate access to this once you register. It will allow you to practice the Akhanda Shakti style, listen in on lectures, and practice a plant-based diet (if you don’t already!).
How does payment work?
To reserve your space in one of our personal transformation intensives, we ask that you make a deposit of 30% of the total price by following the payment link. We accept payment by debit card or credit card. The final payment for the training is due 60 days before the program start date, and you will receive an automated reminder email with a link to submit payment. If you would prefer smaller installments, please email us and we can easily find a solution that serves you.
What style of yoga do you teach?
In-depth information on our style and method can be found here.
Do you offer scholarships? What about work exchange?
We have a few early bird scholarships that have VERY limited availability. More information about our scholarship opportunities for upcoming programs can be found by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We don’t currently accept work exchange for our personal transformation intensives.
What do I need to bring?
A list of essential items will be sent to your inbox via email once you place your 30% deposit.
What is the cancellation/refund policy?
All deposits are non-refundable. However, they are transferable, so if for whatever reason you place your deposit and can’t join us, you can give your spot to someone else. All deposits are valid through the next calendar year, so you may apply your payment to a future program that fits a change in your schedule.
How do I know if this isn’t the program for me?
If you aren’t ready to dive into the depths of your soul, discover places where you feel uncomfortable, and release the layers of yourself that cause you suffering – this isn’t the program for you. We live in the jungle where the energy of Mother Nature is strong. It’s humid – the air is thick here. There are truly huge bugs. Rain will wet your hair, with your feet trudging in mud. Simply put, this isn’t the program for you if you aren’t ready to commit to your growth 1000%.
How do I know if this is the program for me?
This is the program for you if you’re ready to expand your capacity to be of service. If you are looking to be a part of a global network of yogis and conscious social justice advocates educating the public on the teachings of yoga as a modality for peace. If you are looking for professional training that will support you in deepening your own practice as well as meaningfully supporting others. If you like to howl at moon, play in the rain, count howler monkeys in trees, and find deeper union with nature - we are waiting for you.
