You will have the convenience of town amenities paired with the tranquil seclusion of the jungle. Enjoy a refreshing waterfall pool plunge, explore the gardens where your food grows, spot, and hear wildlife all around you. The cottages have UV filtered water and provide daily housekeeping and laundry service available for purchase. The housing that is provided is shared (three to four people per house per bathroom) and in enclosed jungle lodges.

They all have screening, shelves for storage, a hotpot and mugs for tea or coffee, fans, electric outlets, lights, hot water shower, bathroom, seating area (some indoor, some outdoor), and so on. Think of a simple lake camp only in the jungle. They are simple but comfortable and beautiful. Each lodge has a view out into the thick jungle or out over the Caribbean sea.

All pricing is based on standard shared housing. This means anywhere from three to six people per house. Some houses are one-bedroom with one bath, some are two beds. On occasion, they have the option for upgrades to the single or double room at an additional cost. These will be announced via email and availability depends on the size of each program.

This course has two half days off and three full days off through your 26-day experience. If you will require more time to explore the area, please book additional days to stay in Puerto Viejo. There is not a lot of free time built into your intensive schedule for sightseeing. Courses start at 3:00 p.m. (check-in) on the first scheduled date of the program. All the trainings end at 11:00 a.m. (check-out) on the last scheduled date of the program.

The main style that you will study and acquire proficiency to teach is a Vinyasa style of practice. Caribe Yoga Academy titles it Karuna Flow. Karuna is one of the Sanskrit words meaning compassion. This style has a firm foundation in functional anatomy, prop usage, and allowance for adaptation so that each student can make the class right for their unique body and practice.

Sometimes, there is supplemental reading suggested. There will also be several playful group presentations and projects which will require you to gather with your group and plan outside of contact hours. In addition, students complete a mid-course and final exam.
