Retreat Venue

Set in a stunning valley on 105 lush tropical acres, Casa Grande Mountain Retreat is an oasis of peace and tranquility.

 

The former coffee plantation, now exquisitely landscaped, has 20 rooms scattered up the mountainside with a beautiful river as the lower border. Follow the hiking trails up the mountain and down the waterfall.

 

Each room has its own en-suite bathroom, private porch and hammock.

 

A salt-water swimming pool is cradled beneath a green mountain vista.

 

Our restaurant is completely plant-based and we source most of our ingredients from local farmers and our own land as much as possible.

“El Templo,” where most of the yoga training will take place, is a spacious, fully equipped studio surrounded by windows and mountain views.

The lifestyle

 


Ayurveda is a sister science to yoga – they are meant to be complimentary. The course is designed to align with ayurvedic principles of daily routine, practices, and nutrition. As part of the course you will learn more about how to identify and manage your unique constitution on a day to day basis.

Our restaurant will nourish you with well balanced, nourishing plant-based meals, teas, juices, and snacks. You will be grounded and replenished throughout the day, supporting your practice and learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

This course offers you the opportunity to study and practice yoga in an idyllic natural environment, removed from the distractions and stressors of every day life. The integration of Ayurvedic lifestyle and the peaceful, natural setting are completely supportive for this experience.  We have chosen to go with a full month so that we can comfortably cover the content and the minimum 200 hours required by Yoga Alliance – all in person. This course is for those who what to have a fully in-person immersion. Additionally, the course includes all acocomodation, food, and beverage expenses in the beautiful and unique Casa Grande Mountain Retreat.

The course will be bilingual. We will provide translations for both languages as needed.

We strongly believe that everyone learns at their own pace in their own way. For this reason, there is not a formal / traditional “test” per se. We support your learning through assignments and practices. The assignments and practices are not assessed in the traditional way of “right vs. wrong.” We are not evaluating anyone to determine whether they are a good or bad student / teacher. Instead, the assignments and practices help us determine where we need to refine our own teaching so you can better integrate the process. In addition to the assignments there will be teaching practicals where you will practice sharing the teachings with others.

The main course requirements for certification are: attend all required hours/sessions, complete all required assignments, complete all teaching practicals.

The content will be recorded and will be made available on the virtual classroom for students to review as necessary. However, students are required to attend the online sessions LIVE as much as possible. Yoga Alliance has made it very clear that most of the sessions must be completed LIVE, to qualify for registration in their directory. 

Yes. This course will give you a solid foundation of the principles of yoga in its multiple dimensions. Once you start learning and practising you may be more inspired to simply share it with others, so don’t be surprised if you end up sort of teaching it anyway. In fact, learning to share/teach yoga is a great tool for better understanding the practise for oneself. Do keep in mind, because it’s a teacher training we do make time specifically for teaching practise, which you would be inspired and required to do for certification. Our teaching methodology is very supportive and meant to inspire you to inspire others, not to pressure or test anyone, so that it can be the relaxing and enjoyable process we believe yoga should be.

This course is for new and experienced practitioners as well as certified teachers.

New Yoga practitioners will be immersed and established in the understanding and practice of Yoga. Experienced Yoga practitioners will learn Yoga essentials to deepen and refine their Yoga practice, that cannot be fully explored in Yoga classes.
Qualified teachers will enrich their existing Yoga practice and knowledge to gain continuous education credits.
