UVITA, COSTA RICA
A YOGI'S PARADISE

Uvita is a small village on the southwest coast of Costa Rica. It is notable for being located where the mountains most closely reach the Pacific Ocean and is the closest village to Marino Ballena National Park (roughly a 40 minute walk, or 5 minute taxi ride). This tropical hamlet possesses great charm in an unspoiled and serene atmosphere. With palm trees swaying in the wind, providing shady relief from the intense Pacific sun, there is plenty of outdoor options in this tropical paradise.

Uvita is the major stomping ground of Costa Rica’s whale and dolphin species. The nation’s most iconic and oft-spotted whale, the humpback, spends more than eight months a year in these waters – the longest humpback whale season in the world!

ABOUT THE
YOGA TEACHER
TRAINING EXPERIENCE

This is a soul-rocking, life changing opportunity to dig deep, connect, paint, play, laugh, cry and love. Understand samadhi (universal oneness) and the integration of nature and divinity by learning about medicinal plants, local ecology, permaculture, and conservation. Frolic in the waves, hike a magical rainforest, paddle majestic mangrove tunnels and unleash your inner child. Go zip-lining, surfing, whale watching and explore magnificent waterfalls on your days off!

Our training is designed to help you connect with and nurture your inner child through play, art, movement and nature. We will explore ancient teachings with dance, painting, journaling, and acro yoga. Understand how food is grown on a permaculture farm, connect barefoot to the Earth and move with intention.
