Why Visit Costa Rica
Known for its beautiful beaches, volcanoes and biodiversity, Costa Rica is a nature lover’s paradise! A quarter of the land is made up of national parks and protected jungle, the largest in the world as a percentage of the country’s territory. Home to a rich variety of flora and fauna and diverse wildlife including spider monkeys, the quetzal bird and the three-toed sloth, Costa Rica has only 0.03% of the world’s landmass, but is estimated to contain 5% of the world’s biodiversity. Costa Rica offers a variety of landscapes, microclimates and something for everyone. Whether it is adventure, enjoying some of the best surfing, hiking or relaxation that you are seeking, this location will provide it all.
The spirit of Costa Rica embraces the ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle. Meaning ‘Pure Life’, this mantra permeates the lifestyle and is the heart of Costa Rica’s cultural appeal. Relax into the easy going vibes of this beautiful land and find freedom of heart. We will explore yogic purification techniques and feast on the abundance of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables available that will provide the cleansing that your body needs. This program emphasizes the purification of mind, body and spirit.

Sacred Paths is an incredible institution! Their 200-RYT was transformation, well-structured, and inclusive. I felt like I learned more from Darin and Lacey in 3 weeks than I had in all of the previous years of personal practice and attending classes. They have artfully drawn from a variety of cultures and disciplines in a way that allows students to take what serves them and begin to formulate their own model of what it means to live a yogic life. Beyond learning, this was a well-facilitated opportunity to unplug in a beautiful place and reconnect with yourself and those around you. Kudos to this team!

"My YTT was everything I could have dreamed of and so much more... It has transformed not only my life, but the way I view myself and all of creation. Through this journey I have tapped into who I truly am, and always was- It has enabled me to heal, walk through fear and trust that there are much larger forces at play here- guiding me on my path, showing me my purpose in this life. It is now my mission to help guide others on their path of self-realizations and healing... I cannot say enough about this experience except- buckle up! You are in for the ride of your life ;)"

"I could have not asked for better to start this journey. Darin and Lacey are the kindest most patient and loving teachers I have met. They chose a very beautiful and mystical location for the training which makes it all the more special. I personally wasn't doing this course with the intention to teach straight away but more so to deepen my spiritual practices, feel more comfortable with creating my own ceremonies, to make yoga a lifestyle and stay on this path with devotion and conviction. I feel I received and learned exactly what I went looking for, plus I feel like I could happily teach a class now which is not something I ever felt comfortable with. I loved every minute of this experience, even the ones that were emotionally challenging. I would highly recommend it. I intend to keep taking courses and furthering my knowledge with Sacred Paths no doubt. ~ Ahó"
