At Vida Asana, you will be staying in comfortable rooms, each with their own bathroom. Vida Asana's open-air jungle yoga shala allows nature’s symphony and natural beauty to create the perfect meditative backdrop to your practice. Vida Asana has a beautiful pool, spacious sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas, and many hammocks.

Program

On the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, you will explore the natural rhythms of the space between the jungle and ocean. The continuous cycle of the waves matches the cycle of breath, as you connect to your own life force and release that which stagnates the flow. You will explore yoga, surfing, and your own spirit in this tropical paradise.

The Kula Flow

The Kula Flow is a slow Vinyasa-based sequence with an emphasis on mindfulness, breath, meditation and alignment. Vinyasa means to intellectually place or arrange in a special way. Kula Collective will make sure that you have a solid foundation and understanding of the poses with equal importance on the transition from one posture to another.

Kula Collective understands that the physical practice is a vehicle to the mental as well as emotional work that comes up and helps you to reflect on how you move through your lives, encouraging fluidity and awareness. When you align the body, you can easily access the alignment of the mind and spirit. Since Vinyasa is not derived from any one lineage, as a collective you will have to come up with a creative sequence rooted in multiple traditions.

The Kula Flow has roots in Ashtanga, Sivananda, Kundalini, Hatha and Iyengar. The intention of the flow is to give you an opportunity to access the stillness of the mind, preparing the body for meditation or the foundation of yoga. It is important that the practice has an intention based on a yogic philosophy that can be weaved throughout the class while still giving you space in your practice to explore any resistance that may surface so you can ultimately find lightness in your body and mind. You will dive deep into the 4 traditional paths of the following yoga:

  • Bhakti (devotion): You will open with a chant in order to center yourself and invoke energy to assist you as you flow through the practice.
  • Jnana (knowledge): You will utilize relevant themes to help lift the veil of who you are not in order to reveal who you are as in your truest and highest self.
  • Karma (selfless service): Karma offers a dedication to that which is greater than you so you may be guided to flow into harmony with the Oneness of being.
  • Raja (8-fold path): Raja is a systematic approach to yoga that emphasizes the benefits of meditation for spiritual self-realization and the purposeful evolution of consciousness.

The Kula Flow is a philosophical journey through the 8 limbs of yoga inspired by the teachings of the ancient sage Patanjali. Sutra literally means to thread, so you will experience this weaving of these important concepts throughout the class, leaving you with a better sense of yourself.

  • Asana: To sit comfortably with self
  • Dharana: Concentration
  • Dhyana: Meditation
  • Yamas: Social ethics and guidelines (external)
  • Niyamas: Observances (internal)
  • Pranayama: To let the breath flow with intention and ease
  • Samadhi: Transcendence

The Kula Flow will provide an experience to look inward and fulfill your soul’s purpose. It will encourage you to find contentment in the present moment. When in the flow, you will recognize that there is nowhere you need to be and go. This moment will be entirely perfect exactly as it will be.

Daily Flow

It is through the experience of yoga in the daily flow that Kula Collective understands the infinite nature of your being where you will reach beyond the boundaries of individual lives, experience and touch the unity that is yoga. Each morning you will wake in silence to meditate as the sun rises, flowing into the internal experience of pranayama and asana as well as living a daily intention through the practice and discussion.

The classes will be held in beautiful and inspiring spaces. They will be led by an open and informative guide that encourages interaction as well as group participation. You will spend the day communicating from the heart, discovering new parts of yourself and the world, releasing the Guru within.

The Chakana will provide the backbone of your experience alongside the yogic and Quechua Chakra system which will lead you through the lower, middle as well as upper worlds of study and self-discovery in the 3 cycles of the program. Each cycle will progress on the last, leading you through a medicine cycle of learning and healing.

You will take the eight day of the cycle off to rest and finish at lunch on the fourth day for a half-day of self-sadhana (spiritual practice). You will meet on alternate evenings for Satsang, traditional Indian gathering, sacred sharing circle and you will open as well as close each cycle with a sacred ceremony.

Each morning will be spent to share daily intention and philosophy through Kula Collective's art of living component followed by comprehensive lectures on yogic theory and holistic healing practices in art of healing. The afternoon will be devoted to the art of sharing yoga, interactive workshops that break down the art of teaching and practice, giving you the opportunity to teach right from the first class.

For the first half of the training during both the morning practice and the afternoon workshops, you will share the Kula Flow, Kula Collective's unique sequence. During the second half, you will cover creative sequences that build upon what you have already learned.

Throughout all, you will create sacred space for sharing and celebrate your connection through Bhakti yoga (the yoga of devotion) in the form of traditional Indian Kirtan and sacred medicine songs from around the world.

You will follow the yogic and vegetarian diet which purifies your practice from the inside out, eating your meals with the same reverence and mindfulness that Kula Collective applies at each step. You will meditate as you breathe, bend, dance and laugh your way through the experience. Kula Collective allows their practice to be a ceremony, each time.

Daily schedule

During the training you will wake up while the sun rises and experience the beauty and serenity in the midst of a tropical setting. You will end with meditation or Satsang (wise gathering) to contemplate and reflect on your sadhana (spiritual practice) of the day. Living with the rhythms of the earth and embracing the fullness of the practice, you will grow into yourself and life.

Flow of the course

For full school days, you will follow the following detailed schedule. On half days (fourth day of each cycle), you will open with a morning's rest, Restorative / Yin class and a workshop to deepen your understanding of the Chakras associated with the 'world' you are working in and the rest of this day will be free. You will meet for evening gathering every other day.

Typical day

  • 06:30-09:00 Art of practice (meditation, pranayama and asana)
  • 10:00-13:00 Art of living / teaching (yogic philosophy, theory and diet, yogic living and daily intentions)
  • 15:00-17:30 Art of teaching (Kula flow, Asana analysis, adjustments and yoga Anatomy)
  • 19:00-20:30 Art of healing every other evening (ceremony, Kirtan or Satsang sacred gathering)

Curriculum

Kula Collective's yoga teacher training is a holistic program based on the understanding that to understand yoga, you must first understand self, body, mind and spirit. The Chakana, or Andean Cross, will act as the guide and foundational structure for the course, encompassing a lower world, middle world and upper world that each focus on different types of movement, diet and meditation.

The levels will allow you to move up through the layers of our self-understanding, to reveal the wise and light-filled beings that you are. Kula Collective brings to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in yogic philosophy and a daily yoga practice called The Kula Flow. Every day, the teachings will flow through each of the four arts including art of teaching, art of healing, art of living and art of practice.

Elements of the yoga teacher training program

The Yoga Alliance has set a widely-accepted international standard for yoga teacher training (YTT) programs which includes a minimum of 180 contact hours across five areas of teaching: techniques, philosophy / lifestyle / ethics, teaching methodology, anatomy and a teaching practicum.

YTT-200 syllabus

Techniques

Asana, pranayama and Kriya techniques will be taught as well as practiced. Then, you will practice teaching them to your peers. There will be time to develop your own asanas, learn about benefits, checkpoints and contraindications as well as to teach and assist peers during group teaching sessions. Group teaching means that you will form a circle as each participant demonstrates and teaches one asana while others either perform the technique or assist their peers (contact hours: 100).

Asanas

A variety of asanas from the following groups of asanas will be taught including gentle beginner and intermediate variations. You will be taught how to enter and exit a pose, how to use the breath in the asana, checkpoints for alignment, benefits and contraindications for the asana as well as how to assist students in the pose.

Categories of Asanas:

Standing and balancing asanas, forward bends, back bends, side bends, twisting poses, crouching as well as seated poses, poses on the abdomen, poses on the back, inverted poses and meditation poses.

You will also learn how to adapt the techniques for specific ages, levels, some ailments and in the case of pregnancy. You will learn warm-up techniques and relaxation poses including the importance of deep breathing in relaxation to prevent muscle fatigue and the build-up of lactic acid in the muscles.

Pranayama

IAs a teacher trainee, you will learn the form, benefits and contraindications of the following pranayama techniques as well as when to incorporate them into the class and how to introduce pranayama techniques including abdominal breathing, the 3-part breath, Ujjayi pranayama, Brahmari pranayama, Anuloma Viloma and Kapala Bhakti pranayama. You will learn how to perform these pranayamas with the bandhas and with relatively short breath retention (Kumbhaka) when appropriate.

Bandhas

In order to perform the retention in the above breathing techniques, it is necessary to teach and learn Mula Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha and Uddiyana Bandha, the latter also being instrumental to Kriyas such as Nauli. The purpose of the bandhas will be discussed in its relation to the uniting of Prana and Apana to channel them into the Shushumna Nadi.

Kriyas

You will learn the following Kriyas, Jal Neti, Jal Kapalabhati, Agni Sara, and Tratak as well as their benefits primarily for their own practice and later how to introduce the Kriya to a class.

Meditation

In the theory section, the goal and paths of yoga will be discussed, thereby leading to the concept and techniques of meditation. Guided meditation will be explored, including creative visualization, meditation using yantra, mantra, ideation, Ishta Chakra and the withdrawal of the senses from external objects. You will be guided in choosing a mantra for meditation.

Mantra

You will explore the idea of mantra as a mystical energy encased in a sound structure in relation to both Saguna (Nama) mantras and Nirguna mantras such as Om. You will learn to chant and present yogic mantras for the beginning and / or ending of yoga classes (such as the Shanti mantra or the Jyothi mantra). Bija mantras for purifying the chakras will also be explored including the timing and procedure for using these mantras in meditation.

Transformational experiences

During the transformational experiences evening program, you will delve into the practice of both Nama and abstract Kirtan as well as Vedic mantras such as the Gayatri mantra, the Mahamrityunjaya (healing) mantra, the Shanti mantra, the Loving-kindness mantra and the Akhanda mantra. Transformational experiences will also include some rituals, sharing, healing circles and creative movement.

Philosophy, lifestyle and ethics

Kula Collective's program attributes quite a bit of emphasis to this section, as they believe that Western students of yoga tend to focus more thoroughly on the physical aspects of yoga such as alignment, health benefits, etc. than on the philosophical base and framework of yoga including the practice of yoga off the mat. This section will introduce yoga psychology and philosophy through discussions on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras chapters 1 and 2.

You will present sutras and also use pair work and group work discussions to give you the opportunity to explore how these sutras relate to the practice as well as how they live their lives. Patanjali’s 8-fold path is the climax of chapter 2, and you will offer concrete examples of how to implement Yamas and Niyamas in daily lives. You will have the opportunity to discuss their understanding and experience with these yogic guidelines.

You will also be guided to see the interrelationship of all of the 10 principles as well as the interrelationship of the different paths of yoga. The paths (Bhakti, Karma, Raja and Jnana) will also be introduced in both a philosophical and practical light (contact hours: 30).

Lifestyle

Kula Collective will present and compare yogic and Ayurvedic concepts of nutrition as well as those of daily cleansing rituals, self-massage and other practices.

Ethics

As a natural extension of the 10 principles (Yamas and Niyamas) as well as the discussions on teaching methodology, you will flow into a discussion of professionalism and ethics in the teaching profession in general and the yoga profession in particular. Kula Collective will present their Statement of Professional Standards and discuss as a group the importance of having and maintaining codes of professional standards.

Teaching methodology

Practical teaching methodology includes how to demonstrate, observe, cue and assist students. This will be integrated with the techniques class. You will model the importance of language used to describe entry, maintaining and exciting poses.

For example, in the forward bend, the image of “surrendering the body to the force of gravity” is a useful and gentle image as is “inhale release slightly, exhale and sink into the pose, feel the pulse of the pose” as opposed to “pull” or “push” style language.

Theoretical discussions of methodology (pedagogy) aim to explore how to become a transformational facilitator or teacher rather than just an instructor. This includes such topics as the art of sequencing, creating a safe space, establishing a student-centered class, managing group dynamics, language and cueing, the ethics of assisting, and creating a yogic environment for learning (including the dress of the teacher, yogic colors, the direction of the class etc).

You will also discuss qualities that will be instrumental to them as teachers (contact hours: 25).

Anatomy and physiology

In the 20 hours of anatomy and physiology class, you will be learning both about the physical system and the subtle body.

Physical anatomy

This class aims to teach you about anatomy and how it relates to yoga. The teachers and you will be guided by resources such as Anatomy and Asana as well as The Anatomy of Movement. Subjects will include the study of the skeleton, muscles and joints, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system as well as the endocrine system and how they are benefited by yoga.

Subtle anatomy

Subtle anatomy is the yogic teaching regarding the 3 bodies, the physical body, the astral body and the causal body as well as the 5 corresponding sheaths and the yogic techniques that purify each sheath. Further, the concept of nadis and chakras will be explored. The shape, location, associated glands and characteristics of each chakra will be explored.

This subject will be complemented by the practical meditation sessions and chanting sessions which will explore meditating as well as chanting to purify the chakras. It will also complement the discussion of the Ida, Pingala and Sushumna nadis that is intrinsic to any discussion of pranayama as well as the bandhas.

Practicum

In the first half of the program, you will be gradually introduced to teaching by teaching peers each pose or mini-sequence in the techniques class. This will progress towards teaching one pose or mini-sequence to the whole group ‘Group Teaching’. In the second half of the course, you will teach 2 classes to a peer. Each class will be 90 minutes long. You will then get 15 minutes of feedback from your peers and the trainer.

The first round will be a set of Kula flow sequence, the second round will be a beginner or intermediate level class where you will be required to create and sequence your own class holistically around a theme of your choice (contact hours: 22 including 5 hours of teaching a partner, small group and classes)

This unique YTT course includes optional surfing adventures. You may find your balance on and off the mat. Regardless if you surf or not, you may enjoy the cleansing of the ocean breeze and waves.

Kula Collective will also take trips deeper into the jungle as well as engage in ocean-side reforestation projects to give back to the sacred lands that hold you through this journey.

    "Hey, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my entire being. My life has been forever changed, for the better, all because Jessi responded to my call and offered me a scholarship. If not for that moment, it may have taken me a lot longer to find the peace and happiness I embody now. I feel eternally grateful, and have an immense amount of love and respect for all of my facilitators: Jiya (Julia), Kali (Jessi), Tarzan (Zach), Anahata (Bonnie), and Madonna (Krystalin) ... your wisdom and passion was incredibly moving and real, and was just what my soul was seeking. Your intentions are so true, and I am honored to have been your student. I in fact, hope to see some of you again when it's time for my 300-hr! Eternal love and light, "

And dam proud to be a part of the kula experience and crew for life! Our instructors CJ Ananda Page and Randi Schiffman brought a love to the experience that I am not even able to put into words. It was very clear that these two women are full of integrity and passion for their dharma. Thank you Kula!! I had the support of many friends and family members. I love you guys. A special thank you to the guy who has always seen the greatness within me. The one who is always there for me. Supporting me in every way possible.

  • Reseña de Jake Ferree

    "I wanted to take the time and share a massive amount of praise for the 300hr training that I just completed in Peru. I know words can never express the amount of gratitude that has filled my heart but I will give it a try. The course was above and beyond all of my expectations. It seemed like every other day the facilitators had another surprise trip and/or present for us. The days were long, waking up at 5:30 a.m. every morning and staying in classes until 9 p.m. every night, although the days were long and jam packed with classes they seemed to still go pretty fast and I found myself completely engaged in all of the lessons. All of the facilitators put their whole heart into their teachings and it was definitely felt and fully received. The connections that I made on this journey and all the self work that I was able to accomplish wile I was there will be something that will forever change me and something I will forever be grateful for. This trip was definitely a life changer and I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to enhance their knowledge mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Thank you thank you thank you."

    "I attended the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in May 2015 in Mexico, and it was an absolutely fantastic experience, largely because of the two talented and knowledgeable teachers. CJ Ananda Page brought knowledge, passion to every class and despite the gruelling, all day schedule she maintained a high level of energy and presence throughout! She created a safe learning environment with her calm and compassionate manner, allowing the students to feel as comfortable as possible while learning new skills. Whenever you have a teacher that has the practical knowledge, combined with passion for the subject, you end up having happy, well taught students! I truly feel lucky for all that Ananda brought to the course, her value to our experience cannot be understated.” Thanks so much Kula!"

  • Reseña de David May

    "Ananda and Coby both embody the true nature of the yogi and divinity within us all with their light, knowledge, and dedication to growth, whether its their personal evolution or their student's evolution! Not only do I feel prepared to build my business as a yoga instructor and fitness professional after our time together, but I feel prepared to do it with all of me. I feel that I am ready to put myself in everything I do! They each helped me open doors inside of myself so I could grow. I came to our training together at a point in my life where I felt I knew what I was, a spiritual being, but I had no idea who I was, as a yoga teacher or human! It is the very essence of Coby and Anandas nurturing nature and knowledge of yoga that aided my growth as a yogi back into my true self! My roots took hold deeper into my soul and I relearned my true nature. Through listening to each of them, I gained extensive knowledge. Through watching each of them I gained examples of growth. And through all of our learning, I became permanently rooted to each of them. Something deeper than teacher and student. Something deeper than friends. Something deeper than family. Something deeper than these words. We all (the entire group) became one, all thanks to their gracious, nurturing guidance. I feel beyond blessed that my1 path crossed with these two souls!"

  • Reseña de Gaia Good

    "I was unbelievably blessed to have Ananda as my teacher and guide during both my 200-hrs in Mexico and 500-hrs in Peru, both were completely life changing experiences. Ananda held a beautiful sacred space as she supported us in our transformation from a place of complete unconditional love. Ananda helped me to understand that I can live my dream and live as the light. The wisdom that was imparted intertwining the shamanic practices of the Americas with the traditional yogic practices of the East was fascinating and creates a holistic way for us to move spiritually forward into our new connected earth. Ananda's teaching clearly comes from a depth of knowledge, wisdom and experience, and was shared humbly, providing an abundance of space for our expansion. Ananda embodies the bliss that can be found in the present moment, representing that our existence is our creation, that what we create comes from what we are, which is love. During the trainings we were gracefully lead to raising our vibration, bringing us into union with the divine. I met soul family and discovered infinite love, I will be eternally grateful! I love you dear soul sister!"

    "It was with much gratitude, love and respect that I thank you for having the courage and enthusiasm to follow your yogic journey. As a result I was honored with a teacher. You are patient, focused, wise and giving. It was inspiring to observe your unwavering commitment to guide 13 women (myself included) through a mind, body, soul journey. You were encouraging, nonjudgmental and demanding when needed (the appropriate amount, of course). You were the wise observer yet you were also a bright light, full of smiles and fun. I know that I will speak to my own students some day of my teacher and they will see admiration and gratitude on my face. I hope our paths cross again. Until then I pull strength daily from remembering your commitment and recalling the courage that not only you displayed but my fellow students that through your guidance and energy are now certified yoga teachers! Yeah!!! Namaste and lets Om it out!:)"

It was a life changing experience and I couldnt have done it without Randi. I was very homesick and Randi was so understanding and loving. She is an incredible yogi and always makes you feel like you can do more. I learned so much from her; its hard to do yoga without her! She is still my favorite yoga teacher I have ever had! I would highly recommend taking any class, training, or retreat with Randi. I promise you will not be disappointed! Namaste!"

    "I left the yoga teacher training with abundance of gratefulness for what I've learnt, and life in general. I wouldn't have achieved such a state if it wasn't for the path that our main facilitator, Jiya, opened for us and guided us through each day. Her teaching style was super fluid, open and deep, it simply felt effortless from her side. I respect and love the endless patience that she showed throughout the training. She was always present, holding the space for us, aware of the material delivery deadlines but also of our progress and our mood thus was able to easily adjust the tempo. Her music passion definitely rubbed off on me, she has an amazing voice :) And overall she has this effortless ability to share with and without words or actions her light and wisdom."

  • Reseña de Hana Pepin

    "It is a dedication to asking the questions, Who Am I? What is my purpose? How can I serve? In becoming a part of this world wide Kula family I have been blessed to have such incredible guides on this spiritual path. The community of beings that come together are here to awaken, to create and to heal the self and one another. I have spent the last month in Peru with Coby, Ananda, and Randi as facilitators and my life has shifted. When in their presence I feel a part of something greater, more vibrant and so much more alive. The program offered me space to discover who I truly am, to feel safe and protected while exploring sides of me I was unsure of. The integration of yoga, mantra, ayurveda, shamanism, plant medicine, Andean and native American culture along with many more is brought together so well by this diverse group of light beings. Every moment became a new opportunity to sink into the heart and to lead from this space of greater awareness and peace of mind. When we step into our darkness we become more aware, more mindful and more awake as we enter the light. We become capable of letting go of past beliefs, ideas, habits, and thoughts that no longer serve who we are, in the Now. We are emptied of the old stagnation and become full of spirit. I am grateful for this wonderful experience to have learned such assurance of these things. I have truly received all the wisdom and knowledge I had been seeking and manifesting because of this program with Kula. Many thanks and many more fun times to come! Kula Aho. Namaste."

  • Reseña de Elizabeth Cohn-Martin

    "I came into creativity and yoga retreat after a very academically, mentally and emotionally stressful semester in New York City. While I was pretty fatigued and exhausted initially, the transition into the workshop brought a tremendous amount of relief and an influx of joy that I had not felt in a long time. I consider myself quite lucky to have been able to offer myself such a fantastic gift and can fully vouch for the benefits of this experience. This retreat is very special for many reasons. The obvious reason is that it merges creativity development practices with yoga practices. I have yet to find a workshop or retreat like this elsewhere and think that it is powerful to merge these two practices, as the physical practice of yoga enables the mind to become much more malleable and open to creative flows and desires. Being able to use the physical practice in a way that directly supports creative development is super special and really quite useful for the support of all different kinds of creative practices. Zach helps to clarify and direct those creative instincts while Jessi crafts the physical practice as a meditative and spiritual journey that distinctly feeds the creator or artist in each of us."

    "Filled me with confidence to take my practice into the world. I had the pleasure of being a student to Randi's Thai yoga massage training at the Yoga Forest on beautiful lake Atitlan, in January 2015. Randi's got a fun, kind, loving, and also kind of hilarious energy that is so warm and enjoyable, and I loved getting to spend two weeks with her as a friend, mush-partner, and student her techniques of teaching of Thai massage are very clear, and her touch and demonstrations are great, and give a sweet feel of what Thai massage is all about. I've definitely taken a little bit of her along with me into my own practice wherever I go now, and for anyone thinking of getting a massage or taking a course with Randi, I give my strong recommendation. Enjoy."

    "I came to the forest for one week as a guest and ended up staying for five. I signed up for the lunar yoga immersion course which ended up being the best decision of my life. Hayley is an incredible teacher with so much wisdom to share. It's a brilliant course with 1 hour meditation and 3 hours yoga a day, alongside a 2 hour wisdom theory class a day, which were so amazing. I learned so much and would recommend anyone interested in yoga, consciousness deepening practice or teacher training to come here. I'll be back for my teacher training for sure. The forest is so beautiful and amazing place to go and visit, the permaculture farm, food, cabanas, yoga platforms, and chill out spots are all amazing. I had the most incredible time and made friends for life. Everyone is super genuine, supporting, and beautiful at the forest. It will always remain as one of the most special experiences of my life."

  • Reseña de Dawn Hyde de Estados Unidos

    "My stay at the yoga forest was nothing short of amazing. My experience in the lunar yoga immersion far surpassed all of my expectations. The land is beautiful. The daily routine at the forest is full of sweet rituals: We would rise early with the sun to practice meditation, and asana. After nourishing meals, there were philosophy and permaculture lectures, and restorative yoga in classes. There were plenty of opportunities to participate in sacred ceremonies which included many offerings, such as fresh flowers, chanting, music, and sharing. After that I would then settle into my tent under the moon and stars. I've never felt so connected to a community, the earth, and myself as I did during that transformational month at the yoga forest. The lunar yoga immersion program was wonderful. Hayley is one of the most incredible yoga philosophy teachers that I've ever had. Her patient guidance on this path will be unforgettable. The wisdom classes that she taught were a true gift, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to study under her. The program that she has created really allowed me to venture deep within my consciousness. She created a loving and supportive space to help me shed the layers of myself that no longer serve me, and to shine my light brighter. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to reconnect with their hearts, their bodies, and the earth. Thank you."
