NICARAGUA 200 HOUR

 March 2 - 10, 2024

Our 2024 Training is a Hybrid program. In order to become a 200-hour certified yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance you must complete both the in-person and virtual modules.

 

Begin virtually at your own pace in January 2024 with 100 hours of online training, then join us for an 8-day intensive in Nicaragua for 85 hours of in-person attention. The remaining 15 hours will include readings, practice, and assignments on your own.

The Nicaragua immersion is held in Playa Maderas, a gorgeous town on the Pacific Coast near San Juan del Sur.  We rented a boutique hotel with expansive ocean views, a path to the beach, two yoga spaces, a pool, and a great restaurant. This trip will focus on the physical portion of the program. It is a great way to advance your practice, gain teaching experience, and meet like-minded others.  

The virtual component is sold separately due to the arrangements made with the retreat center. You will have access to more teachers, one-on-one attention, and live-calls and the content will be available for replay for a total of 6 months. 

We hope you will join us!

getting here

 

We recommend flying to Managua (Nicaragua) or Liberia (Costa Rica). We will have shuttle vans waiting to take our group to our hotel. There will be multiple shuttles arranged for our group and we aim to organize them at times convenient to the majority of our flight arrivals. There may be some waiting around, but we will be in touch about preferable flight options. The flight is not included in the cost of this retreat. Managua airport is under 3 hours from Playa Maderas and Liberia around 2 hours, however It includes crossing the border and going through customs.  If you prefer to arrange your own transportation to the hotel, we can help arrange this for you for an additional cost.
