Cafe Playa Negra, Playa Negra, Los Pargos, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Costa Rica Yoga Teacher Training

This 200-hour foundational teacher training is an immersive experience for those wishing to either deepen their personal practice or to learn to effectively teach safe, powerful sequences designed to touch the lives of students both on and off of their mats. This training will teach you the art of Vinyasa Krama (wise progressive sequencing) taking into account kinesiology and energetics. You will learn to sequence both Hatha yoga and Vinyasa yoga style classes. Selena Garefino Yoga believes you can only teach who you are. This unique program will provide you with the tools to connect with your most authentic self, to walk your sva dharma (personal path) with courage and grace, and to truly live the teachings of yoga, both on and off of your mat.
