In this program, Bienestar Uvita Yoga Shala will offer you opportunities to make discoveries through self-inquiry and experimentation in connecting to mind, body, and spirit. This yoga teacher training requires your attention, focus, practice, inquiry, and objectivity. You will teach each other, as well as have the opportunity to teach a public class at Bienestar.

The River House is nestled in a very private tropical garden located only five minutes away from downtown Uvita, the national park, and beach of Ballena as well as Playa Hermosa. The houses sit right next to the Higueron River, which allows for perfect wildlife watching right from the leisure of the deck.
Each house offers three bedrooms and each house features a 35-square meters pool with a big outside recreational area to relax or just enjoy nature. Maid service as provide twice a week. A guard lives nearby on premises to ensure your 24 hour security.
The yoga classes will be held along side the pool in the palapa. You can pick your breakfast from the own exotic fruit featuring banana, mango, lemon, orange, avocado, and guava trees. Whether you like watching toucans, parrots or monkeys straight from the comfort of the hammock.
At dry season, you can also hike up the river or down to the ocean.
Everyday, you will have asana practice and meditation for two hours, a breakfast break, and then another two hour class before breaking over lunch. After that, you will have a long afternoon session. The studio is fully equipped, no need to bring any yoga gear with you. You will be breaking each day before sunset, so that you can take a swim, and enjoy the beauty of the Uvita sunsets. A couple of nights a week, you will have a reading assignment, or a practicum to work on. Sundays are free days to rest, play, or explore.
