Why Yoga With a View
Located in the spiritual center of Costa Rica – the hills of Escazu – our boutique YTT offers the ability to develop your own yoga practice, lifestyle and spirituality while equipping you with the skills, knowledge, practical know-how and confidence to lead your own yoga classes and workshops/retreats. The city of Escazu was named Itzkazu by the indigenous indians of Costa Rica. Itakazu means resting rock. In the hills behind our yoga studio the shamans of the Caribbean tribes and of the Guanacaste coast of Costa Rica would meet to share news and ideas.
We offer small class sizes – no more than 8 students per YTT course, so our teachers can provide ample one-on-one mentorship and help encourage confidence in our students. Student teaching opportunities begin the second day of the course and continue throughout, culminating in each student leading at least 2 full yoga asana classes and meditation sessions. You will leave feeling sure in your ability to create unique and effective yoga sequences and to lead a full yoga class of any size.
