200HR Yoga Teacher Training Costa Rica
Our Costa Rica Yoga Teacher Training programs offer the unique opportunity to explore ancient yogic wisdoms while restoring harmony and balance into your daily existence. Our close proximity to the ocean offers the opportunity to explore the art of surfing, another flow-based spiritual practice that allows one to tap into a deep sense of connection and find oneness and peace with all that is. The ebb and flow of the waves teach us to flow with grace in this ever-changing journey of life. We find stillness within the movement, peace permeates our being.
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 path is sure to lead to a wildly wonderful experience.
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.

“I was called to Costa Rica to couple my advancement with a deep spiritual cleanse and ran with it, only to find one of the best experiences I could have imagined -- far exceeding any expectation I set and more deeply purifying than I initially recognized I needed.”
“Transformative, ceremonial, empowering, playful, genuine heart connection. Felt so vital, strong, wise and IN THE BHAV after my training!”
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!
The Sacred Paths Yoga 200hr YTT is well structured to provide a basic understanding of a wide scope of yoga and meditation with a unique emphasis on self discovery and application. The Sacred Paths Yoga 200hr YTT training in 21 days is a rigorous program, with a structure that can prepare students to be able to teach and/or deepen their practice immediately after completing the program. Some of the best parts of my training were instructors Hana Pepin and Adrianna Peters, and the beautiful setting of Costa Rica.
This was an extremely comprehensive and well organized training. It was life changing for me and restored my confidence as a yoga teacher.
How do you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to describe the feeling of having your soul blissfully cracked open? Of floating into a shala surrounded by geckos and birds and butterflies and the jungle each morning? Of creating lasting bonds with each individual person there who you know has changed your life forever? Of feeling safe and nourished in a warm cocoon of learning and love? Of the inspiration flowing into you from your two selfless and knowledgeable teachers each day? Of feeling the most connected with spirit and nature and self than you ever have? What I can say is that never in my life have I given myself such an amazing gift as this YTT. I searched for so long for a training that seemed right. Spirituality and learning to really LIVE my yoga on and off the mat was incredibly important for me so when I stumbled upon Sacred Paths something in me just knew it was the one. This is not your traditional YTT. You will of course learn so many amazing things about yoga and teaching and feel very confident to pursue it as a career if so you choose to do so. But you will also see yourself in ways you never thought possible. You will grow and cry and love and leave with a stronger sense of self. I watched each person in my training blossom in our three weeks and our lives radically change for the better.
I was very hesitant on what I was getting myself into. Little did I know that those three weeks would end up being some of the best weeks of my life. I learnt so much & fell even more in love with yoga. I was surrounded by beautiful, kind, & open-minded people, who accepted me for who I am. Together we grew & changed in the best way. The location was gorgeous & I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about the experience if I could! I am so grateful to have had this opportunity, and would highly recommend it to anyone out there. Whether you’re an experienced yoga practitioner or a complete beginner... you won’t regret it!
