Why Passion?

Trusting someone with your soul is a big deal. We get it. Learn why so many kind, beautiful, free-spirited seekers choose Passion.

FACT: Most people aren't living their lives the way they want. They are slaves to the happenings of their childhood. They are stuck in a mental state of being that keeps them small, powerless, and stuck. They are full of anxiety, depression, and repressed emotions without the tools to free themselves. They are in relationships that do not call them to be their highest selves. They are living an average life of co-dependence and work a job that fulfills someone else's dream. 

SOLUTION: A re-wilding! At Passion, we dive into the (sometimes scary!) depths of our own souls to uncover our power. We come together in sisterhood to strip away the masks of isolation that keep us in limiting beliefs. We discover how to access our truth to have deeply fulfilling connection. We look at our sexuality, our relationships to our bodies, our connection to the Great Spirit. And we learn how to use the tools of Yoga as a pathway to the God Experience - full liberation in this life. Phenomenal Yoga Teachers are those that have gone with a flashlight into the depths of their own soul, so that they can guide others there too. Be phenomenal. Have the courage to live on purpose. You are powerful. You are beautiful. You are worthy. And your soul deserves the Passion Yoga School Experience.

The Passion Yoga School Advantage

We are proud members of The Yoga Alliance, and our program meets and then EXCEEDS their standards. See the chart below to see how we go above and beyond the Industry Standard to support you. 


Conscious Community meets Sustainable Service... in a powerful way. 

Location

Our programs unfold in one of the most mystical places on the planet - Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. The steamy tropical jungle meets the powerful Caribbean Sea. Mother Earth holds us, transforms us, and invites us to look deeper within to see how we can better serve Her and ourselves. Soft reggae vibrations fill the streets of this Rastafarian town, and the holistic wellness vibration is like a magnet for all who are seeking conscious community, healthy living, and alternative methods for self healing and empowerment. 

If you don't like your feet dirty in therapeutic jungle mud, volcanic sand in your hair, or to share your days with wildlife - it's best if you find a different program.

Service

A percentage of the proceeds from our trainings go back to various local and global initiatives close to our heart.  Our current focus is to support a primary school deep in the jungles of Northern India. These children come from the other-backwards class, meaning that they are denied government representation or the ability to escape the extreme poverty into which they are born. So far, we have been able to provide a water system to ensure regular access to clean drinking water, clothes, basic medical supplies, vitamins, school supplies, art supplies, basic hygiene material, and uniforms and text books for the 2016 class. 


Understand the liberating potential for spiritual growth in a woman's orgasm. Surrender into Sacred Ceremony honoring the Great Mother Earth. Uncover the mysteries of the divinely feminine body and unlock its secrets.

....and so much more

I’m opened and empowered. The magic cultivated here is so special, it’s the tribe I crave. A true sangha has been created, and my toolbelt is fresh with yoga implements! I was able to heal such a large part of my painful past, and the greater understanding and blossoming that went along with it. I feel ready to go forth and seva baby! “

I have learned things here at PYS that I had never ever considered before. I have a fresh outlook on life and feel that I can integrate back into my everyday routine with a much greater awareness and sense of compassion for others. I feel empowered to follow my heart and fulfill my purpose in this life of teaching and inspiring others to find their true selves. “

I feel I am forever charged from Passion Yoga School. I can’t really put in words, but I feel so honored and grateful to be a part of this program. Not only has it taught me so much more about my own practice, but how we can mindfully impact others and all parts of life (while being really good at poses). “
— 2017 Passion Graduate
I am not able to tell yet :) For now, it confronts me with different sides and rolls of myself, refreshes my tapas and taught me how such a sweet , gentle approach to life can heal me and others (although that is something I have to face and see in real life and not momentum). “
— 2017 Passion Graduate
My eyes have changed. I look at the world with kinder, more opened eyes and see more glimming. I see people with more compassion and loving kindness. I know so much more about Yoga and understand and connect with its holistic path much more. I feel confident about being a teacher. I sing and cry more. I will give more love. I will spread the healing. I found passion. I feel bewildered, raw, radiant, soothed, strong, abundant. “
— 2017 Passion Graduate
These beautiful people believed in me, when I could not. Taught me about myself even deeper than I ever knew I had in me, push me. Push me for all the reasons. The love and the support I’ve received is unreal. Unlike any other I’ve experienced in my life. These teachers are such a wonder. “
— 2017 Passion Graduate
I have never in my life felt more loved and beautiful than I did in those 3 weeks with my Sangha. Covered in a thin layer of sweat, sand and tears- you all saw the real me. Really saw me. And loved me. I am forever grateful and changed for the better. “
— 2017 Passion Graduate
The 300 Hour YTT at Passion Yoga in Puerto Viejo is more than just a yoga school. Yes, my knowledge of yoga philosophy/mystical sciences, asana, anatomy, ayurveda and health, and the business/entrepreneurship of yoga was greatly expanded. But even if none of that was included in this experience, the true value for me was in the transformation of my mind, body, and soul; the sister/brotherhood bonds formed; and the opportunity to dive deep into the depths of my samskaras allowing them to be healed. I have never before felt so held, so safe, and so unconditionally loved by people who were complete strangers. Now I believe and fully realize that no one, thing, animal, plant, insect - is a stranger - for we are all one and can hold each other in the manner I/we were held at Passion Yoga School and heal all wounds. I came into this container a scared and insecure little girl and left a strong, empowered goddess, ready and able to serve as a channel and heal millions with my voice, touch, and knowledge of the ancient wisdom of yoga. Yet, the transformation and journey still continue in this endlessly expansive thing we call life.
The advice I would like to share for future students of Passion Yoga is to come with an open heart and mind - - and even if you aren’t opened - - Adi Shakti and her amazing team will pierce you open with their divine love.
I am eternally grateful to the Passion Yoga team, Puerto Viejo, the ocean and the jungle. I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you Thank you Thank you! “
