Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre is one of Nicaragua's premier eco-lodges with a strong focus on building community and environmental awareness in the surrounding communities. Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre grew very naturally and did so in the middle of nature.

Each of the 11 bungalows and cabins has been designed with surrounding trees as well as plants taken into account in some cases the trees grow through the building and all have been built to take advantage of the local Papagayo winds to keep you cool without using too much electricity.

The eco-lodge gray water is processed and used to water Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre's garden and grow food for guests. When Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre says rustic luxury, think a modern-day Robinson Crusoe house.

No televisions or air conditioning. There are bugs around, Costa Dulce Ecolodge and Retreat Centre is in the jungle after all and don't be surprised when you come across wildlife close to the resort or passing through. You may get one of the ocean-view cabins for you alone or share one of the ocean-view cabins.


This program encompasses all aspects of yoga; the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and environmental. This way, your empowerment, and personal growth do not only make a positive impact on the people you'll teach, but it will also make the world a better place.

Costa Dulce Retreat has a talented team of teachers, bringing in their own skillset and gifts to enrich you as a person and as a teacher. Besides, their small-size approach enables you to develop true leadership and communication skills throughout the training and provides you with plenty of teaching time and experience.

Learn how to master ancient and powerful tools to increase ownership over your practice and daily life. Invest in the most important relationship with yourself and change your life forever with our unique training program.

The Costa Dulce Certified Hatha Yoga Teacher Training complies with 200-hour Yoga Alliance Standards, including yoga techniques and practice, methodology, anatomy and physiology, philosophy, and practicum/teaching time. The training is in the Hatha Yoga lineage in the Krishnamacharya tradition, combining breath and movement in a flow (Vinyasa), focused on the 8-folded path of Patanjali as a philosophical foundation.

Throughout the training, Costa Dulce Retreat will also introduce other healing practices and techniques from traditional Chinese medicine, Buddhist meditation, and other yoga lineages (like Iyengar). There is a focus on energy healing, traditional natural ceremonies, and other tools that connect you to Mother Nature & your own nature. Besides you are a footstep away from the ocean, to purify and heal yourself daily.

Costa Dulce Retreat offers different techniques to empower you and to enrich your ongoing yoga journey of growth and exploration. Costa Dulce's philosophy is that yoga is not a 'one size fits it all, but rather a unique exploration and expansion of your consciousness, to break through barriers and live your most powerful journey.

Transformation in paradise

This teacher training gives you the tools to confidently start your journey as a teacher, but mostly it sparks the love for yoga and conscious living in a way that you are motivated to embrace learning each and every day of your journey.

Immersion in the lush jungle steps away from the beach

Nature just might be the most prominent and powerful teacher you’ll experience during your training at Costa Dulce. It's healing, grounding, energizing, and reconnecting power is ever-present as our jungle beach location lets you practice amidst the sounds of monkeys and crashing waves while surrounded by stunning views. Meditate watching whales and surf right after class. You’ll feel like you’re dreaming with your eyes open.

Take home tools to transform into your fullest potential

Step into your personal power via group sharing practices, art projects, self-love and truth-speaking practices, ice baths, ceremonies, and more so you feel more comfortable in your skin and proud in your voice. Then experience the transformation that can take place when you reconnect with yourself, your values, and your desire through yoga as well as vision boards, guided visualizations, group exercises, journaling, and more.

Learn to enrich your daily life with ancient practices

Yoga is not just about the poses, but it’s about how you are in the world! Learn how to integrate the practices of pranayama, meditation, nourishing daily lifestyle routines and rituals, and the ethical pillars of yoga into your life to live your yoga off-the-mat and help you better yourself and the world.

A personalized, small group setting

A maximum number of 12 students ensures you are seen and heard and get the support you need. In this small community, teachers and students interact equally to allow for deeper connections that facilitate your personal growth. You will have two lead trainers throughout the training (Ann & Monica), an intensive two-day training with senior teacher Vaya (who lived & practiced with B.K.S. Iyengar for years), and different inspirational/educational workshops from guest yoga teachers and local artists (bringing creativity and presence through art).

Your presence saves turtles, preserves ecosystems, and helps the community

Your contribution also plants trees in the protected nature reserve as part of the carbon offset program, supports local community projects / fair-wage employment, and sea turtle conservation work.
