The retreat has six cabinas (cabin-like buildings), set apart from one another, and perched on the mountainside along winding pathways, offering breathtaking views of the countryside and the Pacific Ocean. They are Costa Rican wood framed construction with stone or tile floors, a porch, hammock, tile bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower with hot water, and adorned with handmade artwork. With the environment in mind, each cabina has a powerful ceiling fan and windows on both sides for cross ventilation.

Panacea de la Montaa YTT Costa Rica Program

You will be taught techniques and practices that will enrich your knowledge to grow on your path of teaching yoga. The minimum requirement is to have had a committed practice of yoga for one year, and a desire to deepen your practice. It is not necessary that you have the desire to teach others, although that is what you will be qualified and certified to do at the completion of the training. Marys approach to the science and art of yoga is grounded in teachings that have been around for thousands of years.

You will learn the basic, and some of the advanced, asanas and how to teach them safely and effectively to a wide range of students. You will also practice and learn how to incorporate the other important limbs of yoga: pranayama, meditation, as well as bandhas, mudras, and kriyas. You will learn to use these yogic tools to find the greatest guru of all: your inner one. Through the Panacea yoga teacher training program, you will find the voice of your authentic inner teacher, allowing you to then share your knowledge in meaningful ways out in the world.
