El Sabanero Eco Lodge has multiple practice spaces and a beautiful airy restaurant to enjoy your meals together as well as plenty of hammocks and garden nooks to relax in.

The resort offers 15 chalets built from local teak trees, overlooking the picturesque Cañafistula valley. Each chalet includes queen size bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, fridge, safe, and a private porch. Common areas feature a beautiful open air lodge, indoor and outdoor yoga studios, infinity pool, and other hangout spaces, all equipped with lounge chairs.


This four-week residential training will be held at a breathtaking jungle retreat, El Sabanero Eco Lodge and will be led by Emma Warmington, Tamar Zick, Sophie Cowper Johnson, and Nicole Minogue.

There are seven billion types of yoga in the world. They will help you find what is appropriate for you and train you to do the same for your students. Nothing is one size fits all, there are different periods in one's life that requires different practices and this training reflects that with both powerful, strengthening Yang, and deeply nurturing Yin forms of yoga asana and other techniques.

You will have many tools to practice and share with your future students. The teachers will pass forward the lineage of Krishnamacharya, Desikachar, and Mark Whitwell, all asana practices, and have a strong focus on breath, felt sense awareness, and safe structural alignment.

Your daily practice includes asana, pranayama, bandha, and mantra. You will have anatomy and posture clinics twice per week with lots of opportunities for Q and A. You will be continuously coached in clear, effective cueing so you can direct your classes in an articulate and effective way.

Consistent deep self-inquiry, philosophical discussion, and encouragement to find the true power of your unique voice will help you connect deeply with yourself, each other and your students and give you the skills to weave meaningful themes through your classes.

As always with Jivani Yoga, teaching practicums begin in week one. You will be teaching your peers from the first few days of the training and you will be nurtured, guided, and supported with useful feedback, encouragement, and leadership skills that will steadily increase your self-confidence and empower you to be a great teacher.

They have a method, but there is nothing formulaic about the way they train their teachers. Each trainee receives individualized support that is dependent upon their particular needs. Upon graduation, you will be ready to start teaching in your community.

In addition to the standard requirements given by Yoga Alliance, you will learn a wide variety of tools and techniques to support your personal evolution. They will help you establish a personal practice that is appropriate for you and give you tools for conscious and compassionate communication, EFT, vocal empowerment, and leadership skills that can bring transformation to all areas of your life.

A required reading list and pre-training assignments will be presented upon registration. They would like trainees to have at least one year of regular yoga practice behind them to begin this training but trainees with less experience are still welcome to apply and their application will be considered on its own merit.

If you are ready to embark on a truly extraordinary adventure of self-discovery, personal growth, and profound transformation, this training is for you.

You will meet some evenings for Yin practice, kirtan, group meals, and movies.
